Hello !

I hope you are well and that you are ready for a new challenge at Less is More, especially since it is the dreaded “One Layer Card” with the theme “spots” ! We are pleased to welcome Maria Rodriguez, our April winner, as our Guest Designer. Feel free to go and admire her blog and leave her a nice comment. And we are back with Uniko, who will be our sponsor throughout the month of June.

Voici mes cartes / Here are my cards

1/ Happiest of birthdays to you ! (using sponsor stamps)

Je dois dire que ce mot “spots” m’a un peu perturbé car je ne vois pas trop la différence avec le mot “dots” qui a aussi la même traduction !

I must admit that this word “spots” disturbed me a little since I hardly see the difference with the word “dots” that has also the same translation !

Enfin, voici la première carte qui en résulte. J’ai opté pour ce set de tampons dans lequel je vois des anneaux bien sûr, mais aussi des pois (gros ou petits).

Anyway, here is the first card that results. I opted for this set of stamps in which I see rings of course, but also spots (big or small).

Je les ai tamponné sur la double carte blanche directement avec les couleurs demandées dans le défi de CAS Colours and Sketches. Puis pour finir j’ai tamponné le sentiment en noir.

I stamped them directly on the double white card with the requested colours of the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge. To finish, I stamped the sentiment in black.

Stamp: Uniko “Background builders – round in cirlces” & “Birthday wishes” (sentiment) – Inks: Altenew “Olive”, CP “Grape crush, Samba”.

2/ Hello

Pour cette carte je me suis inspirée des couleurs proposées par le défi de Color Throwdown et j’ai utilisé un set de tampons idéal pour illustrer notre défi.

For this card I get inspired by the colours of the Colour Throwdown challenge and I used a set of stamps ideal to illustrate our challenge.

J’ai tamponné aléatoirement les différents pois dans les différentes couleurs, et pour finir j’ai tamponné le sentiment d’Uniko en noir.

I randomly stamped the different spots in the different colors, and finally I stamped the Uniko sentiment in black.

Stamp: Happy Little Stampers “Mix mash” & Uniko “Big & bold – hello” (sentiment) – Inks: Altenew “Sea breeze & Lavender fields”, CP “It’s a girl & Mint to be”.

3/ Stay cool

Pour cette dernière carte j’ai voulu “jouer” avec le mot “spots” qui, pris au singulier, veut aussi dire “place, endroit”.

For this last card, I wanted to “play” with the word “spots” which, at the singular, also means “place”.

Alors j’ai fait cette petite scène avec un set que j’ai gagné récemment en créant “un spot de surf avec des surfs à pois.”

So I made this little scene with a set that I recently won, by creating “a surfing spot full of surfs with spots”.

J’ai tout d’abord embossé la ligne courbée avec une matrice, puis j’ai tamponné l’adorable canard, une fois sur la carte et une fois sur du papier de masquage.

First I die embossed the curved line, then I stamped the adorable duck, once on the card and once on a masking paper.

Une fois le canard masqué, j’ai tamponné les surfs et le panneau. Puis j’ai masqué toutes les images pour pouvoir faire le sable et le bleu du ciel avec des encres Distress.

Once the duck masked, I stamped the surfs and the beach panel. Then I masked all the images in order to make the sand and the blue sky with Distress inks.

Puis j’ai coloré les surfs avec des crayons feutre à mine très fine et le reste avec des crayons de couleur. Pour finir j’ai tamponné le sentiment. J’ai hésité à colorer les 2 “o” du mot cool pour faire 2 pois de plus !

Then I coloured the surfs with fine liners and the rest with colour pencils. To finish I stamped the sentiment. I hesitated to color the 2 “o” of the word cool to make 2 more spots !

Stamp: Gerda Steiner “Catch a wave” – Colour Pencils: Faber-Castell Polychromos “#104, 106, 108, 154, 156, 120, 144, 111, 118, 183, 187, 263, 199” – Fine liner : Staedtler “triplus finaliser” – Die : MFT “Snow drift” – Inks : Distress “Squeezed lemonade, Mustard seed, Salty ocean”.

  1. Sorry for such a late visit, Izzy. What fabulous one layers. I’m absolutely loving the pastel spots with that bold hello, it’s so striking. And your third card is so cute and a great use of both meanings of spots. Also perfect for the funny HLS CAS challenge, thanks so much for playing along, Anita x

  2. Oh my goodness that little ducky is such a cool dude!! Absolutely love the CAS design and especially love the curved embossed line underneath the sand, have never seen that done before. Your masking skills are incredible and all that bright colour makes me scream for Summertime. Always love seeing your cards at TIME OUT!

  3. A trio of spotty loveliness Izzy. I would panic completely at a “spots” or “dots” challenge never mind the OLC which is so rare for me. Your surfboard card is absolutely adorable (love that curved embossed line!) and the spotty surfboards are just too much fun – the sweetest summer card ever! The song “itzy bitzy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini” sprung to mind when i thought of dots/spots, not that I have a suitable stamp but it would have been fun…. thanks for inspiring as always, Lisa xx

  4. A brilliant trio of spots (and dots!!), Izzy … the first is cool, crisp and graphic … and the second has a lovely softness about it with the pastel colour palette! Oh my, that little beach spot with the spotty surf boards and that adorable duck is wonderful … and so much fun … LOVE the clever play on words! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Bises, Anita 🙂

  5. Oh ! Tu as été fort inspirée avec tous ces challenges !
    J’adore tous ces cercles et ronds sur tes deux premières cartes et le petit clin d’œil humoristique de la dernière.
    Personnellement, je ne trouve pas si simple le «one layer» 🤔…
    Bises tout plein.

  6. Des petits pois partout, partout! Encercle moi!
    Je les aime toutes, elles sont tous belles! J’avoue que j’aime beaucoup les couleurs proposées par le défi de Color Throwdown.
    Un trio MAGNIFIQUE! Bisous, Jo xx

  7. This is fabulous inspiration for the spots theme Izzy! I love the graphic look of the first two cards and the colour choices are wonderful. But that duck with the spotty surfboards has completely stolen my heart! I let out a little ‘Ahhhhh’ as soon as I saw it. Bravo! It is brilliant.

  8. Such a wonderful CAS first card and love how you bent the dot line stamp to achieve the half circle x. Such pretty colours and great design on the second. What a fun and fabulous third card and love all the dots and the fun sentiment with the extra 2 O’s in the word cool….x Stunning inspiration as always Izzy…..Thank you x.

  9. Fun pop of color in your card for the CASology Challenge and a nice group of cards in general. Thanks for playing along with us on the CASology Challenge blog.

  10. Hello Izzy: Your first two cards are fabulous and graphic, love the images and the colors you used.
    The third card is simply adorable, this little ducky is ready to hit the surf at any time, wish I could join him, LOL!!
    Thank you for inviting me to be the Guest Designer at “Less is More”, I’m beyond happy to join you fabulous ladies this time around.
    Sending hugs, have a great weekend.
    Maria.

    1. Three wonderful cards, Izzy! I love the grunge! Wonderful colors and placement of the images. We were definitely thinking along the same lines with your wonderful HELLO card. That little duck takes the cake though. I LOVE all the dots on teh surf boards, but my favorite thing is the reflection is his glasses. I just LOVE that! Sending hugs to you. xx
