Less is More ” Glamour and Glitz “

Hello lovely ladies, super quick post from me as I have the  “mange ” (well flu to be precise ) Last week upon my return from London I found both hubby and number 2 son a coughing and a sneezing. I of course being the compassionate person that I am called them wimps and told them to stop feeling sorry for themselves , only to catch the dreaded lurgy a few days later !!!! that will teach me !

I just wanted to share this little card with you before I crawl back into bed that I made for

the current Less is More challenge whose theme this week is Glamour and Glitz ! A bit tricky trying to combine CAS with glitz and glamour but here goes nothing !

I used Tim Holtz large and small rosette dies using various papers from my stash and my new ebosser to cut them. The larger one was dipped in Glossy Accents and then tons of glitter added. For the central embellishment I made a mold with some of that fun putty stuff and an old button ( can’t remember the name of it ! ) it sets in about five minutes then added UTEE that I had melted in my Ranger melt pot ( clear,white and blue ) filled the mold and five minutes later ta da ! The embossing and scalloping are all done with a fab new set by SU that I purchased by way of the lovely Vicky from Crafting Clares Paper Moments, I just adore it and am sure it will feature on many more projects to come.

Do pop over to Less is More so much to see and admire as always.

Right am back off to bed with a nice mug of hot cocoa 1

Take care

  2. Sorry to hear you’ve got the bug too Marie as I’ve also been suffering since last Monday and have got to the coughing stage so I hope you feel better very soon.
    Gorgeous card here and love the regal purple with the contrast to the lovely glittery flower.

  5. This is sumptuous Marie! I love how rich and decadent it looks and I absolutely adore the layering you’ve done with the Adorning Accents. And thank you for the mention too! So sorry to hear that you got the mange on top of everything else. Can I join the mange club too please? I’m on a hot toddy drip as I type! Vicky x

  7. 100% glamour and gorgeous colours.
    P.S. Get well soon! It is certainly no fun – I know how bad it is as I’ve had a nasty cold that has floored me for two weeks and it still has it’s nasty grip on me. !

  8. Hi Marie, I hope you’re tucked up in bed (with a hot whisky, for medicinal purposes of course), and that you start to feel better soon.

    Your card is fabulous! I’d never think of doing something so luxurious in a CAS style but you have achieved it so perfectly. This is so luxurious and beautiful, and I love the main colour.

    Take care marie

    Maria xxxxx
