All About Christmas Part 3 ...

As the final posting date looms on the horizon ... finishing off making Christmas cards is becoming critical!!  I've been helped and inspired by this week's challenge at "Less is More" - it is One Layer week which, in theory, means each card takes less time to produce!  The challenge also includes using an outline.  This is my contribution:

I almost feel as if I'm cheating entering challenges with this card as I've done very little ... the beauty to me is in the stamp design.  I did want to add just a splash of colour.

I used:

STAMPlorations Joyful stamp set for the image and Christmas Bell Medley set for the sentiment.
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers
Versafine Onyx Black Ink

I'm entering the following challenges:

"Less is More" #306 One Layer - Outline

Addicted to Stamps and More #223

STAMPlorations Never-Ending Anything Goes



  1. Not cheating, just minimilistic and classy!!

  2. I love the sketchy feel to these cards and then the pops of colour, superb x

  3. Beautiful cards Elaine, love the little pops of colour too,very striking

  4. WOW! These are fab in both colour choices


  5. I totally agree with Carole! These look fab, really CAS and elegant. I think we sometimes feel we have to "do more" with a card but some stamps are so lovely they can stand by themselves and to add anything would spoil them. Perfect result here! Thanks for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  6. Winner, winner, Elaine! I think these are OUTSTANDING and in no way cheating!! Love them! Happy Holidays!! Hugs, Darnell

  7. Very CAS - I think I prefer the red version as it pops more.
