Less is More with Numbers

"Numbers" are appearing on this week's cards at Less is More.  For me, it was a perfect opportunity to use one of my MANY embossing folders.  I also deliberately stayed away from fall and Christmas colors with a simple black and white theme, including tiny paper butterflies.

Tuesday Mailing for Thanksgiving Week

These are the two cards I mailed today:  the designer paper features features metallic copper in the pattern.  The idea for using the negative die space and the die cut itself came from a card I pinned on Pinterest.  The delicate "hello" was applied with spray adhesive:  I really like it for many dies. (My placement of the cards next to a window led to the washed-out look of the one on the left.)

Tuesday Mailing

Last week, my Tuesday cards didn't go out until Thursday---a two-day hospital "event" with my husband changed my plans.  We're back to "normal" now, and I completed my cards early.  I might even mail them today!  Personally, I love these cards.  I struggle with coloring, and I envy those who do it so beautifully.   When I purchased Power Poppy's "Maize for Days" digi image, I was so impressed by the Design Team's cards using the image.  So I printed the image twice and sat with my SU! alcohol markers while my husband and I watched Sunday Night Football.

Sweet Sunday Sketch becomes Tuesday Mailing

This great Sweet Sunday sketch became the sketch for my Tuesday cards this week...although they didn't get mailed until Thursday, for a couple of reasons.  I ended up with polka-dotted leaves on a rich garnet background created with an autumn embossing folder, and finished with the "grateful" die from Penny Black.

Less is More with Paper Piecing

Less is More Week 248 is featuring paper piecing this week.  As I dug through my hundreds and hundreds of stamps, I realized that I don't have many "open" designs, but I found this great dress I have no identity for because it was a piece of rubber in a grab bag.  Although it looks a bit lavender on my monitor, it's really a pale blue.  "Happy" is a die from Simon Says Stamp.

Tuesday Mailing

I was certain I found the inspiration for these cards on Pinterest, but now I can't find the pin so I can give credit.  Just scrolling through the cards I've pinned makes my mouth water!  These cards use designer paper from a favorite K&Co. 12x12 pack--Tim Coffey's "Blossomwood."
