Sentiment takes centre stage!

At Less is More it's One Layer time and the emphasis is that the sentiment should be predominant!
I saw this done somewhere or other and thought that I would try it. I think it's quite clever! (I probably wouldn't have thought of it myself)
It's computer generated and as the font has little white spots in the letters, I embellished these on the MOTHER word with tiny gems.The flourish stamps are from Artemio.
Here I used a Lili of the Valley sentiment stamp paired with a flower silhouette stamp from Unity! They were stamped with Versamark and embossed with Bright White EP from WOW. I did try it with clear embossing powder on the flowers but I prefer this version, what do you think?
Finally a card which is just sentiment and nothing else!


It will be good to be back home this week after running my grandchildren to swimming and choir and brownies and goodness knows what else after school for the past week!
I must say my daughter does a marvellous job looking after them and doing a full on job as well! 
The builders doing her loft conversion really cleared up after themselves well, but the dust does get everywhere! 
Now I'm looking forward to a quiet week!

  1. Fabulous bold sentiments, Chrissie. I did struggle to find large ones for my cards so just tried to make the sentiments the main focus. Love the mother theme sentiment, and your black card base is so striking with that huge thank you xx

  2. WOW!!! swooning over that top Mother sentiment one; it is so clever! The drama of the black and white is fabulous and I agree with you, I think the white embossed flowers are super. Then we get the elegance of the white and silver card. All so different and all very inspiring.

  3. Well those grandkids must be dream to babysit as it's certainly not stopped you crafting like crazy! Loving all your bold sentiments here Chrisse. Super CAS and super eye-catching. When I looked at the first one I honestly thought you'd stamped that all out to perfection - heck what a lot of masking and clever lining up that would take. BUT one awesome digi after all! Superbly done on all of them. Enjoy your quieter week. Hugs Sarah x

  5. Firstly I bet you are shattered with your hectic week but I bet it was really rewarding? The first card is so clever and love that you've hi-lighted the word Mother with the pearls..love it! I think the white embossing powder works best on the black card, which is really striking. Wow on the last card, simple, elegant with perfect embossing, a real stand out card for me x

  10. Three lovely cards Chrissie. I love the sentiment on the first one and the way that the word 'Mother' is picked out in red. The second one is quite dramatic in black and white and the third is beautifully clean and simple x

  11. Oh my goodness, all of them are gorgeous! Card 1 is a very cool design, and I do love the impact of the white embossed version of card 2, very striking, but card 3 is possibly my favourite - SO elegant and 'wow'. Love it!
