Less is More wk 39 Stars.

Happy Sunday Everyone!
I hope I find you all well. This week is Lucky Dip week at Less is More with the theme to use Stars.
Mmmm, I struggled a bit this week mainly because my inspiration was sadly lacking. I made my first card but I`m not entirely happy with it so I made another with one eye on X factor. Which probably explains the fact that there`s nothing paricularly exciting about either of them lol.
The stars are by Anita`s and the sentiment is Waltzing Mouse, all stamped in Memento Bahama Blue.
I`ve added some gems to the stars to give them a bit of bling and a sheer ribbon to finish.
It`s not quite what was in my head so I made this one aswell,
I really didn`t want to use a tree stamp as both Mandi and Chrissie have in their examples but I was fast running out of idea`s. I am quite pleased with the look of this one though.
The tree is Chocolate Baroque (Elusive Images) stamped and embossed in detail silver EP.
Then I`ve simply added some star shaped gems to the tree with a larger one at the top. Cut out the image and matted onto some pink card.
The sentiment is  Papermania Silent Night set stamped in Versafine Onyx black.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  1. I think these are lovely Lynne, I'm racking my brains as to what I can do as I don't have any star stamps! I think I'll have to resort to digital:)

  3. I love them Lynne! The first one is fab because of the surprise colour and the second because you've placed the star gems so perfectly on that gorgeous tree image. Vx

  8. They are both lovely. Very elegant and clean looking. Sometimes these are the cards we need. The stars on the second one look great and the blue on the first looks so nice and bright.

  11. They are both beautiful! I really like the first one - that star is stunning! It would work well on a DL side by side with the big sentiment too.
