Had to buy a stamp set.. I'm blaming Less Is More...

Hiya! The current Less is More challenge is stamp layering, and although you can do that in various ways, I've used it as an excuse to buy a stamp set that I have been drooling over for quite a while... Here are a couple of cards I made with the new set. Completely wrong season, but I love blossom! I added Stickles to the blossoms for a bit of sparkle.




I'm entering this one in the following challenges:

Less is More:
Creative Inspirations: 'Sparkle'
Watercooler Wednesday: 'Feminine Anything Goes'





I'm entering this one in the following challenges:

Color My Heart: (My light grey is a bit too dark for the challenge - it's the lightest I have!)


Ingredients:
Altenew stamp set: 'Under the Cherry Blossom Tree'
Adirondack ink pad: Cranberry
Stampin' Up! ink pad: Tip Top Taupe
Archival ink pad: Watering Can
Artistry ink pads: Moon Crater, Cotton Candy
Stickles: Star Dust

Swooning at the beauty of your cards and that stamp set has just reached the top of my wish list! It's wonderful to see it stamped in the two different colour ways and the assed sparkle just finishes it all off perfectly. Thanks so much for joining us at Less is More xx

Quite honestly, this is the right season for your gorgeous cards. After looking outside at all the white that is on the ground and continues to fall, I find it stimulating and a true pleasure to see blossoms, even though they aren't real. Beautiful layering of your stamped images and wonderful use of colours. Love the sparkle, too, as well as the clean and simple look to your card. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
