I have had an exhausting week looking after my grandchildren, They have been brilliant and we had a super time, but with a different 'mystery' to go on each day, an old girl like me starts to feel her age!
We went to the farm on Monday, Fun City (soft play) on Tuesday, Bursledon Brickworks (Museum) on Wednesday, where they made their own bricks and to Dinosaur Isle on the Isle of Wight, via the car ferry on Thursday. On Friday we took them home!!!
This week at Less is More the challenge is to use more than one stamp. There's no special prize for the person who uses the most, but hopefully it will be fun!
I made a similar card to this a few weeks ago. It involves one of my favourite techniques...emboss resist. The white flowers were stamped with Versamark and clear embossed before the background was inked with Distress Inks and then being overstamped with a variety of plant stamps.
I quite like to chop these panels up once I have stamped them. and mount them in triptychs or similar. The possibilities are endless. This one is simply trimmed with a Martha Stewart Border punched strip and a ribbon.

The sharp-eyed amongst you may notice that the Artemio manuscript stamped strip has been mounted upside down here. It was rectified before it was given to the friend who commissioned it, but that was not until after I had taken this picture. As she is a member of my choir I knew it would be spotted!
The numbers are from an old, retired, US, SU stamp set. The clarinet is from a colouring site on the internet, coloured with Wink of Stella in black and gold.
Again the sentiment is computer generated in Problem Secretary font.
There are only two examples this week as I've been kinda busy!
Last night I was making some inserts for some wedding stationery, when having almost finished a whole bunch of die-cutting, I noticed that a letter had disappeared from one word in the text and so the whole lot had to be re-printed and re-cut. What a nightmare!
I hope to have a bit of a rest this week.
