Less is More # 350 - Stars

Well helloooo! How're you doing? We're still sweltering with the heat over here but I think it is due to cool down slightly in the next few days, What an Indian summer this is!

Well, these Saturdays are rolling around way too quickly so here we are again for another super One Layer Card challenge at Less is More and those one layers need to feature stars.

Once again we are joined by Bev, the brains behind Uniko our October sponsor, as our guest designer. You'll see her card and find a link to her blog from here, and please be sure to leave some love for her.

If you head on over to the challenge blog you'll find some more fantastic inspiration from the design team.

I have 3 cards for you today.

1) Tipsy Santa

I thought I was really stuck for images with stars on (but then I found tons after the fact!) so whilst leafing through my Christmas stamps I came across this Santa image. Now, he is supposed to be upright, but I thought about all that sherry / port etc that he has to drink whilst delivering presents and just imagined him seeing stars at the end of the night. Hee hee! Gosh! I am so sorry guys but I actually think this stamp set has been discontinued now. What a shame.

That one is for:
Crimbo Crackers Challenge #143 - Create a scene
Hannah and friends #284 - Stars (with a living creature human, animal or fantasy)

STAMPS: Katy Sue Designs The Wine Buffs - The Christmas Spirit & Santa and Pals (I think these may be discontinued)
INKS: Memento Tuxedo Black
OTHER: White linen card. colouring pencils

2) Star of Hope

Back to 10 minute makes (well, if you ignore the stickles drying time!). The large star and sentiment were simply stamped and heat embossed with white EP, a few strokes of a white pencil and some stickles finished it off

This is for
Stamps & Fun = Creativity #309 - Non-cute

STAMPS: ClarityStamps
INKS: Versamark Clear
OTHER: Wow! Opaque Bright Ehite embossing powder, China white pencil, Stardust Stickles, Blue card

3) Joy to the World

Another 10 minute make and I had forgotten that I had this stamp set. It gave me the chance to try out an embossing glitter powder that I've had for a while but never used.

This one is for:
Addicted to Stamps and More! #263 - Holidays

STAMPS: Paula Pascual Stamps - Joy to the world PPCSA6004
INKS: Versamark Clear, and a Versamark clear embossing pen
OTHER: Wow! Hearthrob embossing glitter, Papermania Tinsel Gold embossing powder, White linen card, Misti

That's it from me for now. I hope you found something you like and I really hope to see you again soon.

10 minute makes!!! I don't believe you Sharon ... I need some tips next month if that's true! Love all three of these, the tipsy santa made me laugh out loud and your colouring is awesome with the delicate texture adding superb interest. Swooning at that elegant star and once again coloured so perfectly. That blue cardstock is divine! Then another pretty, glitzy, festive beauty with your starry ornament. Just perfect. You'll have all your Christmas cards done in no time!!! Have a fun week and don't get too much sunshine will you! LOL xx

Ah, ah ! You made me laugh with your Christmas Spirit card ! I now understand why Christmas presents have sometimes a certain delay ! Here we let Santa milk to drink, it's safer, ha, ha, ha ! Love this big white star over the blue card and the white colouring and your glitter make it even more stunning ! Your last card is also a beautiful Christmas card with traditional colours, so sparkly with your glitter EP ! A fantastic trio to showcase this star theme ! Have a fabulous Sunday and a great week !

Oh Sharon! I love your Santa card. He’s adorable and made me smile. So ironic how you thought this theme would give you trouble then you knocked it out of the park with 3 fabulous CAS creations. These are perfect for mass producing. Have a wonderful week. xx

You certainly dug out some fab stamps here, Sharon. Awesome creativity with your first, such a fun Christmas card. I love that star, and the detailing with the white pencil gives it a lovely glow. And who doesn't love a bit of CAS sparkle, making your third card a triumph too! xx
