Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop with 12 Challenge Blogs + Giveaway ($250 in Total Prizes)


Hi lovely LIMettes!

What's this?  Less is More posting on a Tuesday?

Anita here, and I'm taking the reins today to introduce the Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop, in which Altenew has kindly invited Less is More to take part.  This is a monster blog hop so read on for all the info.




All the challenge blogs you see in the graphic below are taking part in this fabulous hop!



The hop is being hosted by and will begin over at the Altenew Card Blog which you can find here.

All you need to do is comment along the way and link up your projects using Altenew products.  Altenew will then choose FIVE projects from the entries which will be featured on the Altenew blog on September 5th, 2021.

$250 in total prizes!  To celebrate this fantastic blog hop, Altenew is giving away $25 gift certificates to TEN lucky winners.  Winners will be chosen at random from the comments left on any of the blogs listed below and will be announced on the Altenew blog on September 5th, 2021.



In following the hop you should have arrived here from Time Out Challenge.

Onto a couple of cards I've made using a couple of gorgeous Altenew stamp sets, first up is Flower Vine...


On some blush cardstock I stamped one of the vines in a pale ink first before colouring with blush and soft green shades, and then re-stamped using my stamp positioner and heat embossed in white.  The sentiment from the same set was stamped in Altenew Mountain Mist ink before die cutting and adhering the panel to the card base.


For my second card I used the Ditsy Print set...


On some die cut pale yellow cardstock I stamped this layering set using inks in Peach Perfect, Orange Cream, Autumn Blaze, Frayed Leaf, Sweet Leaf and Forest Glades.  The sentiment is from the Flower Vine set.


Next on the hop is the Double D Challenge blog.


If you get lost along the way, here's the order of the hop:

Challenge #449 - Shades Of Blue

Hey LIMettes!

How is your summer coming along? Hopefully it is better than last year because you can now interact with more family and friends. We also hope you are getting some beautiful blue skies and maybe even a little bit of blue sea. So we thought our colour challenge for August should celebrate that colour and we've chosen shades of blue. Of course, as usual you can team this with any neutrals if you need too.
