Ding, Ding! Less Is More Round Two

As promised, back again with another LIM card.  I loved what Jen did with her kraft card, having the second layer and rounding the bottom edges so I copied that but in white.  I also stayed with using background stamping as on my first two cards yesterday, and not a totally clean card with just some type of inked horizontal panel.  If this card is too much for the sketch than that’s perfectly OK.  It was one of those cards that was such a joy to make that it brought a huge smile to my face when I was doing it and made me so so incredibly happy!  I absolutely love it, and at the end of the day that’s all that matters, lol!!

My new edition of CardMaker magazine arrived today too and after a quick glance through it I popped back to a specific page which had really caught my eye and also inspired me to make this card.  There’s quite a lot of stamps and inks used here, plus a quarter piece of white card and a little strip of purple that both came out of the snippet drawer, but it was really quite quick to put together after the colours and stamps had been chosen.  The hardest thing was deciding on the colour of the ink for the sentiment!

  1. Okay, spill it sisiter… how do you stamp your sentiment so perfectly? :)

  2. wow Brenda – what a really pretty card… love all the colours you’ve chosen – I was just going to ask you if you used your momento chalk pads – then realised that you list them (didn’t read that bit – skimmed it and missed it)… oh, and you used something similar to what I was thinking about – the dew drop type? I have the chalk inks, but different colours. I have all the brilliance ones and all the metallic ones too – but not all of those that you listed.

    I must say that if you did a small pack of those cards in the same kind of colours – or you could purposely vary them, they would make a lovely gift… you could even do them in 2 colours, or different tones of colours… Oh! the possibilites. See – you’re inspiring me now, but I don’t have those stamps.
