Less is More #290


Here we are back again with a new challenge for Less is More :)  This week we are looking for exotic cards which got me thinking of all things tropical....that gave me the perfect excuse to play with the fabulous stamps that Uniko released earlier this summer and I came up with 3 cards:

I love the beautiful hibiscus flowers in the Paradise stamp set - they create instant impact.  I simply stamped and cut out two of the flowers and mounted them on a circle of green card.

Next I played with the Paradise Leaves stamp set.  I masked a panel and stamped the leaves in different shades of green, masking them to create a layered look.  I stamped and cut out two of the leaves and popped them up for some dimension.

Finally, I used the lovely hibiscus flowers again - stamping and masking them to create a one layer card.

I hope you like my exotic creations!  I look forward to seeing what you make for our challenge at Less is More this week.  The lovely DT have lots more inspiration to share with you too.

Thanks for stopping by :)

  1. Gorgeous cards Sarah! That's a lovely stamp set and so eye catching with the bold designs and the vibrant colours you've used. I love all of them and can't choose between them! Hope you're having a fab holiday this week :)

  2. All stunners here Sarah and you've certainly gone all out on Uniko Paradise and showcased the sets perfectly with brilliant exotic tones. Have another hot and sunny week and please bring some back for us eh!!! x

  3. Wonderfully exotic cards Sarah. The hibiscus look so pretty on both the cards you used them on in those beautiful shades of colour (I was tempted to use those stamps too). Adore the leafy card though. It makes you want to part the leaves to see what is hiding behind them. Enjoy the rest of your holiday.
