Apologies for the lack of blog posts, it's been a whole week since my last one. I just seem to be busy all the time (but not doing anything particularly exciting!) at the moment. I promise to try harder in future ;)
But I'm here today to share the next new challenge over at Less is More where we are back with a Theme challenge and this week it's...
Feel free to interpret this however you like.
My first is a new baby card...
Pretty simple really, just repeated stamping of the elephants and ric-rac. I added the sentiment in black as a contrast to the pink and grey and then added some clear gemstones for the elephants' eyes. The panel was then popped up on 3D foam.
- Stamps: Jane's Doodles - Jungle Baby; Hot Off The Press - Stamped Stitches; Clearly Besotted - Little Onesie
- Ink: Versa Color - Petal Pink, Sky Gray; Versafine - Onyx Black
- Accents: Clear gemstones from stash

And for my second card I used geometric die cuts in a repetitive pattern for a masculine birthday card...
I die cut the curved off squares from three colours of cardstock and adhered them in a repetitive pattern on the diagonal onto a panel of white cardstock. To ensure the first row was straight I temporarily adhered a scrap of cardstock to the panel and butted the die cuts up to it. I then just followed the pattern for each row, shifting them along each time. I stamped the Happy Birthday in black and trimmed off the die cuts that were overlapping the edges. I finished by adhering the panel to some black cardstock and then flat to the card base.

- Coloured Cardstock: Papermania Solid Cardstock
