Baroque Motif

I've had a spare hour this afternoon to try to get some housework done, but, oh dear, I only got as far as my craft table, and that was SOOOOO messy that I had to tidy it up!!!.....And somehow, my laptop got turned on and found its way to the Less is More challenge???? Then, I don't know what happened but red and orange inks fell onto my stamps?!...............there was nothing I could do but make a card to save wasting the inks.

This was the result and I'll be linking it to the LIM red and orange colour challenge

The red swirl is enhanced with orange stamped flowers with punched centers ( placed with help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig), and the punched butterfly with the flower stamped on its wings.The sentiment finishes off the diagonal direction of the design across the face of the card.

Recipe : Card = Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White
Stamps = Baroque Motifs and Verve
Inks = Real Red and Peach Parfait
Tools = Stamp-a-ma-jig, SU Butterfly Punch and Fiskars small flower punch
Extras = Red gems

Thank you for dropping by today, and I hope that I can find the time to do some more crafting this week, as I've really missed getting covered in ink and double sided tape.

Hope to see you soon


  1. How strange that your stamps managed to get covered in just the right coloured inks for our challenge! They did a pretty good job with this card too!
