Hello there.  I've finally manage to make something worth blogging.  Bit of a no-show mojo situation goin' on around here.  Lots of messing about, with only a full scrap pile to show for it.
This is for Less is More this week.  Love playing with dies, especially inlaying.  Have a foolproof method at last.  The secret is Post It tape to hold each item in place while you cut the next one & always work from back to front.  Still doesn't stop me messing up the stamping tho'.

Stamps: Lovely Layers (PTI); Abstract Art (MFT); Scripty Sayings (PS); Geometrics 2 (CB)
Ink: Tangelo (Memento); Soft Pool, Lime Green (HA)
Dies: Stitched Mat Squares (Lil' Inkers)
This card has been persistently cocking a snook at me for a number of days now.  Twice I have walked away, my scrap bin overflowing, but today I became its master!
Top tip for masking - use tracing paper, then you can see exactly where you are placing your mask, to make sure the stamped image has an even border all round.

Birdhouse hi

Stamps: Tweet Talk (Newton's Nook); Scripty Sayings (PS)
Ink: Soft Pool (HA); Tangelo, Morocco (Memento)
This stamp set was an impulse purchase last week from Make The Day Special.  I thought the birdhouses were too cute to ignore.

3 colours for Less is More

Stamps: Basic Borders (ME); Scripty Sayings (PS)
Ink: Soft Pool (HA); Tangelo (Memento)
Dies: Borders 1 (PS); Stars (MFT); Tag-a-long (Clearly Besotted)

Inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch & the colour challenge at Less is More, I came up with this card for one of my son’s teachers.  
Can you tell I’ve got a new toy? Yup, have finally succumbed to the temptation the is Wink of Stella.

Edit: have just realised 3 colours in the top third also make it eligible for CFC31.
