Less is More - Not a Square

Week 69 Recipe  for Less is More is to make a clean and simple shaped card - anything but a square or rectangle.  I used a template that I made years ago, I'm not sure where I got it from - possibly from a Stampendous card, because the stamps are from Stampendous.

The cat's face is V043 Frisky by Stampendous, and the shades are L108 Rhinestone Glasses by Stampendous.
Born to be Wild is by Diamonds.

I loved the pictures on Virginia's blog of her son's cello choir,

and it inspired me to make this card.  Challenge details here.

The slipper stamp is Hero Arts C3920 Fancy Slide (stamped onto card, coloured with good old fashioned Tombows and cut out)
The shoe is part of a Stamp in the Hand stamp (ditto)
Best wishes stamp is from Printworks Q012 Always & Forever

Runway Inspired Challenge #12 - Tsumori Chisato

I love the movement and colours for this Runway Inspired Challenge

Here's the inspiration:

And here's my take on it:

Background stamp - Hero Arts Abstract Art H2807
Dragonfly - Magenta
Hugs & kisses - Woodware FRCL069 Large & Small Greetings

Blue Jeans

I started this card for the Play Date Cafe Challenge #133

Baby Blue...Denim...Cherry

Then I saw the latest CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC54

CFC54:  Clean And Simple masculine cards using designer paper

And I remembered there was a gingham challenge still running at Moxie Fab World so it's going in all three.

Jeans stamp - Judikins 1701J
Ticket stamp set - Inkadinkado 97614 Paperwork Greetings
Designer paper - Papercraft Essentials Sweet Wishes

I had to emboss the Crystal Metallic Blue pigment ink, but it's given the jeans texture, so it worked well.

I've also now linked it to 52 Card Pickup - Week 21

So here's my take on it.

The stamp is 90434 Girlfriends by Stamps Happen.
