Less is More - Lucky Dip

Hi All, here's my card for this week's Less is More challenge which is a nice simple bit of paper piecing.  

For the sentiment and border I created my base card in Craft Artist.  I then stamped out the Papermania Sausage Dog stamp onto a snippet of Pink Petticoat gingham and co-ordinating plain paper and just coloured his nose black and added some faux stitches.  A real quick and easy card.

Allsorts Challenge - No Designer Papers

Evening peeps, happy Sunday evening.

Here's a card I made  using two fabulous sets from Honeydoo.  One set is sentiments which compliment the other set which is a wine glass, bottle, bunches of grapes and a leaf.

I stamped and coloured lots of leaves and bunches of grapes before cutting them all out - time consuming but actually quite therapeutic.  I then stuck all the leaves on individually creating a vineyard look.  I also cut out the glasses and added some dimension with some foam pads.  

This is a fabulous set which I know will get lots of use.  If you haven't come across Honeydoo stamps before, do check them out - they are fabulous quality and great value for money. 

I'm going to enter in the Allsorts Challenge for this week which is to create a card and not use any designer papers.  They are offering two great prizes - tickets to the NEC in November and digi stamps from Deedee's Digis - either (or both) of which I'd love to win.

This week's Promarker challenge is called 'Patchwork'.

The sponsor is:

who is offering some new papers called 'Quirky Quilts' as a prize.

For my card I used XCut Hexagon dies.
The papers are bits of left overs from Pink Petticoat.
The image is a Dinky stamp from Little Claire (it just shows you can make a large card with a small stamp - my card is 8 X 8).
The tape measure was made from an Xcut embossing folder.
I used the computer to generate my seniment.
The cotton reel is from Material Girl digi set from PP and I used other bits and pieces from my stash.

Of course, the image was coloured with Promarkers:

Sorry the picture isn't great.  It's a very dull day here in Solihull today.

Here's a close up:

Thanks for dropping by.
