...What's going on here then?!

Hello, hello, hello from bright and breezy Buckingham today! Today the challenge at Less is More is to use three of something on a card, so this is what I've come up with:


There are some great fonts in Stampin' Up's Simply Celebrate sentiment set and I thought this 'hello' would certainly bear repeating three times!




I stamped an inky background first with one of the splodge images from Happy Watercolour before stamping the word. TIP: I used a sticky note to line up the words on the righthand side and a stamp-a-majig to position them neatly on top of each other.

Here's another version with a neutral Crumb Cake background and card base:


Hmmm. I think I prefer it - how about you?

I spotted the gorgeous colour combination at the Color Throwdown this week:

Does anyone remember the Lionel Richie song 'Hello' from the 80s? When my youngest son turned 13 recently, his sister made him a card by printing off the cutest photo of him on the phone to his grandparents at the age of two or three, along with the caption 'Hello! Is it SQUEE you're looking for?'
How sweet is that?!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll see you soon,

  12. I think I agree Vicky, but wouldn't say the blue one is not good, just "different".

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my post.

  14. I really like them both but if I had to choose it would be the crumb cake even though blue is my colour. the crumb cake makes the colours of the ink jump out at you. x Jan

  15. That's a great idea to repeat the sentiment and a truly british greeting if you knocked the 'h's off too :0) I prefer the Cc base too!!!

  16. Plum for me! And that is unusual as I am not a "purple person". Love your repeated greeting idea Vicky. Really makes a point. hehe. It is you who inspires me to keep trying for "less is more" CAS cards by the way. Yours are always so gorgeous. Vx

  17. I love both cards. A simple idea that would work for other sentiments too.
