Less Is More #364


I am so excited to be playing along with my teamies at Less is More as we celebrate our 7th Birthday!  Sarah and the team do such an amazing job bringing us fun challenges and inspiration - I really appreciate all of the work they do behind the scenes :)  Thank you x

This birthday challenge is a theme that I am sure loads of you will love....

I used one of my new stencils - heartbeat headphones - on this design.

I masked off a panel on the card front and inked through the headphone stencil with dark grey ink and using red ink for the heartbeat.  The headphones are clear embossed to give them a glossy sheen.  I added some stamploration stamps to create a grungy feel and a die cut heart.  The sentiment is from Uniko.

On my second card I have black embossed the headphones and used blue ink on the heart beat.  I added some Uniko stars in the background and a sentiment from Mama Elephant.  They are both one layer cards!

I shall link this card up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where Anything Goes.

I hope you like my headphone stencil which is now available for sale in my Folksy store.  Do head over and check out my small (but growing) range of stencils :)

Thank you to Sarah and the team for letting me come back as a GD for this special birthday month.  I look forward to seeing what you create.

  14. What a cool new stencil, perfect for masculine cards or cards for teens! I love the grungy feel of your cards and the stamps you used are wonderful. I think the first card is my favorite-that red heart in the middle of the headphones adds just so much wow-factor to the card! Great job!
