LIM Cut it Out

Well these were an absolute pain to photo, especially the white ones so these are the best of a bad job. Today is the last day to enter Less is More cut it out challenge so I thought I had better post the ones I've done. The problem is having checked some entries I wanted to have a go at making some of them.
My first is probably the one that came to my head when I first saw the challenge using the square anywhere punch from Martha Stewart, don't you hate that chap on the TV selling them he makes it look so easy again this was the best of a bad job. The leaves are my favourite Sizzix die and use it a lot in scrapbooking and the flowers are punched ones again.  That just leaves the stampin up sentiment and punches.

So having seen the gorgeous white cards that Chrissie and Mandy have made I had to make a version too. I have used the heart embossing folder inside. I've used various punches and the Magnolia swirl die.

I've never seen Barbara from Clarity use their stamp but I saw a card on someones blog and I had to have the stamp. As you can seen I cut out the O and used it as a template for the scene I made, which I then used sticky fixers to give it depth behind the O.
I saw this card  and I just had to have a go but I didn't want it to look completely like the one I saw. I used a stamping up folder and punched a flower off to the side which is similar to the Christmas card my Stampin Up friend Nikki made. I can see now I've found the link that I could've used some gems in the centre.
I've got a weekend at home just got to make a couple of cards today and then I've a weekend of Scrapbooking

Saxo Stamper said...

Hi Debby, these are just gorgeous, just as beautiful as your other cards that you do. What pretty colours in the flowers.

Wondered if you would mention my blog on your next post, I am raising money for Ruth (you may have heard her on radio 2 this week) We have a first prize of £40 to spend on Stampin Up, 2nd is £20 and third prize is SU goodies. All we are asking is for a donation of £2.00 to be in with a chance to win. The story is over on my blog and I would really appreciate a quick mention. Hope you don't mind me asking.

Thanks Karen

Kathleen said...
