Less is More Week 179 Challenge


The challenge this week at Less is More is #179 – Earth Tones.

My design is like yesterday’s card for the Operation Write Home VCMP. I wanted to see if I could really make trees if I used the proper colors with my stencil and it worked.

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – Shake It


The challenge this week at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is Shake It – have a shaker element on your card.

This is my first time doing this and so had to try a couple different things to get an effective shaker. In the end, I took a piece of Lawn Fawn diecut plastic packaging (I keep the dies in a tiny ziplock bag with the matching stamps), folded it in half, added adhesive to the edges, put my hearts in the center and then sealed the edges. I adhered this over the sentiment panel and then added the top layer using dimensional adhesive.

*Because of my recycling of plastic, this also qualifies as an entry into the Less is More Week 178 challenge – Use a recycled item.
