Less is More Week #339 – Pierce your project

Bonjour !

Cinquième samedi du mois, ce qui signifie un défi “lucky dip” à Less is More !

Hello !

Fifth Saturday of the month, which means a “lucky dip” challenge along at Less is More!

Voici les cartes que j’ai créées pour vous inspirer…enfin j’espère !

Here are the cards that I’ve created to inspire you….at least I hope !

1/ Bienvenue à votre petit garçon / Welcome to your baby boy

On m’a commandé une carte pour une naissance et j’ai donc utilisé ce défi comme support. Sur une feuille Kraft, j’ai cousu un contour au fil blanc. J’ai ensuite tamponné le petit ourson endormi et j’ai embossé à la poudre blanche.

I was ordered a card for a birth and so I used this challenge as a support. On a Kraft cardstock, I sewed a white outline. I then stamped the little sleeping cub and I heat embossed it with white powder.

Avec un crayon Versamark, j’ai dessiné la lune de telle sorte que l’ourson paraisse assis dessus. J’ai colorée l’image avec des crayons de couleur puis avec un stencil et un crayon de couleur blanc j’ai tracé les étoiles.

With a Versamark pen, I drew the moon so that the cub appeared to sit on it. I colored the image with colour pencils and then with a stencil and a white colour pencil I drew the stars.

Pour finir j’ai tamponné le sentiment sur du papier Vellum et j’ai embossé en blanc. J’ai attaché le sentiment avec deux attaches parisiennes. J’ai collé l’image sur la double carte kraft avec de la mousse créative.

To finish, I stamped the sentiment on a Vellum strip and I heat embossed in white. I adhered the sentiment with two brads. I foam mounted the image on a double kraft card.

Stamp: Craft sensations “teddy”, Simply Graphic “Planche anniversaire” (sentiment) – Inks: Versamark – Pencils: Faber-Castell watercolour “#401, #430, #447, #478, #480,  #483, #496” – Embellishments: HA “White embossing powder”, K-Kingdom “brads”– Stencil: Carta Bella “good night”.
Addicted to Stamp and More #252 : Make your mark

2/Joyeux Noël / Merry Christmas

Pour cette carte je suis restée dans un combo de rouge et blanc que j’adore pour Noël. J’ai embossé une feuille rouge avec un classeur de gaufrage et j’ai découpé au centre une ouverture pour en rabattre les côtés et les attacher avec un oeillet.

For this card I stayed with a red and white combo that I love for Christmas. I dry embossed a red cardstock with an embossing folder and I cut an opening in the center to fold the sides and tie them with an eyelet.

Sur une double carte blanche j’ai tamponné et embossé le sentiment. J’ai collé quelques flocons rouges préalablement découpé avec une perforatrice.

On a double white card I stamped and I heat embossed the sentiment. I glued some red snowflakes previously cut with a puncher.

J’ai collé le panneau rouge sur la double carte blanche et j’ai rajouté un poinsettia et quelques branches de sapin qui me restaient d’une des cartes du défi précédent.

I adhered the red panel over the double white card and I added a poinsettia and some fir branches that remained from one of the cards of the previous challenge.

Stamp: Florilège “Joyeux Noël” – Inks: Versafine “Onyx Black” – Embossing folder: K-Kingdom “Snowflakes”– Dies: Poppy Stamps “Small blooming poinsettia” – Punchers: Martha Stewart “Fir branch” & “Snowflakes border”, EK Success “Branch”.

  1. Le petit ourson est tres chouette! Et ta carte de noel, c’est tres elegante. J’adore le combo de rouge et blanc – c’est une carte festive qui vraiment attire l’oeil. Bises

  2. These are two fab cards Izzy. Your sewing on the first card is so neat and I can’t believe that the moon has been hand drawn because it looks so good. That really is a dreamy baby card! The we are given the beautiful and bold Christmas card. What a wonderful way to use the eyelets too – love it. xx

  3. Oh my! The colouring on kraft 😍😍😍! What a perfect card for a birth… I LOVE white embossing on kraft, it’s so so elegant. And you did so well with your Versamark pen when drawing the moon – I find it hard to draw freehand especially when the ink is so feint. Bravo! And the red and white card is classically elegant – I like how you cut it open to place the sentiment inside, a creative way to get an aperture. Beautiful! I hope you have had (are having) a wonderful holiday too. Hugs, Lisa xx

  4. That little bear is just adorable, Isabelle … the soft look of white on kraft is perfect for him … and a little baby boy! Bold, birhgt and texture-y Christmas card … the crisp white die cut posy is fabulous next to the sentiment window! Bon semaine! Bises, Anita 🙂

  5. Two fabulous cards with very different interpretations of the piercing part! That cute teddy sitting in the moon with the stitched frame is adorable! Love how you cut and opened the window with brads in the Christmas card! You always have the best ideas!

  6. Sewing, brads and hand-drawn images on your first card, you’re amazing! Love the white effect on the craft and such a cute card. And I love your creative use of the folds and eyelets on your second design, really creative xx

  7. Another week of beautiful cards, Izzy. You are so talented to not only draw in the moon and stars but you did some sewing too! It’s adorable and love it on Kraft. And a beautiful Christmas card. Bold and festive with great dimension. Have a great week. 😊 Trina xx

  8. The stitched border around your main focal image looks fabulous, Izzy! I love the use of kraft card too as it adds such a warm feel to the design. Your Christmas card looks great in the red and white colour combo – the eyelets are a great touch. I think that I got rid of mine years ago! Have a lovely weekend x

  9. Two great cards, Izzy! I’ve always admired people who have the courage to sew yardstick -it looks amazing and adds such a warm, homespun feel! The soft colors are perfect for a baby card. Your second card with the red embossed panel is very striking, I love your use of eyelets here, very creative! Hugs!

  10. I love these, Izzy! Your first one is totally gorgeous with the warm Kraft and artistic stitching. So lovely. The bright colours and use of eyelets on the second one looks fab! Wish I’d thought of that! Have a great weekend x
