Challenge #381 - Guest Designer CASE Card

Hey LIMettes! 

We're back with our latest challenge and being a 5-Saturday month it's 'Lucky Dip' Week! We've a beautiful CASE card, provided by a superbly talented crafter and a lovely lady too. It's Rebecca, of Melly Moo Papercrafting and here's a little resume she's provided

Hello LIMettes, my name is Rebecca but you might know better by my blogging name- Mellymoo! I’ve been crafting since I was a child but got into card making around 15 years ago. I started writing my blog, https://mellymoopapercrafting.blogspot.com, in 2011 and one of the first challenges I dared to enter was Simply Less is More”

After having my son, Thomas, in 2016, I took a long hard look at my crafting supplies and decided to simplify and streamline everything, and that’s when I signed up to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. I get to use amazing quality products that coordinate effortlessly as well as getting to share my love of papercrafting!! It’s a pleasure and an honour to be a guest designer for LIM and I hope you find some inspiration from my card. Rebecca x

Rebecca has kindly offered to sponsor this challenge too so our lucky winner will receive a yummy goodie from Stampin' Up! Here's our CUE card followed by Rebecca's delightful card for you to CASE and we're sure you'll agree it's CAS spectacular!



To be eligible for ShowCASe and Prize Winner choices please carefully follow all of our Clean & Simple Challenge Guidelines plus Glossary of Terms, which you'll find via our 'How To Play' tab at the top of the page. Your designs should feature lots of clean / white / blank / non-patterned space.

We're a little short on our regular Design Team Members this week with some of them taking a week off but don't despair we have a fabulous Guest Designer sharing the challenge with us...it's JoJo our June winner here at Less is More. 

So without further ado lets see what fantastic inspiration JoJo and the design team have created for you using Rebecca's card as inspiration. Do check out their personal blogs if you have the time as there could be a couple of bonus cards there!

Challenge #379 - Black & White + ONE other colour

Hey LIMettes! 

We're back with our latest challenge which is the turn of 'COLOUR' fortnight and as you can see from the post title and the Cue Card below it's pretty obvious what we're looking for. We're sure you'll enjoy this easy challenge.



Being the start of a new month we announce our sponsor for this month's challenges and we are extremely delighted to welcome a brand new and super generous sponsor - it's CASual Fridays and just in case you haven't spotted this company already here's a little bio from Michele, designer and owner.



At CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, we've been creating clever, stylish and sorta sassy designs in beautiful Colorado since 2012. All the stamp and die sets you'll find here were personally dreamed up and designed by owner Michele Gross - just a little glimpse of the fun stuff happening in her head! With new designs released throughout the year, and regular jaw-dropping inspiration from our amazing design team, you'll want to visit often so you don't miss a thing.
Let us inspire you! Follow us on InstagramPinterestFacebookBlog


As well as sponsoring the challenge Michele is also offering all of our players this month a special discount on CASual Friday's stamps using the code 'lessismore' so why not visit the store.
