Less Is More Challenge Number 11

This weeks challenge over at the fantastic Less Is More site is to use ‘ACETATE’.  You should really go and look at their weekly challenges. think doing a clean and simple card is easy think again lol. Please join in the fun and see how you get on…

This  weeks card was quite difficult to put together as there are so many ways to use acetate.  Decided to cut an aperture out using my dies which are similar to Nesties.  Really like this shape as it can be used in many ways.

Acetate front 01  

Treated myself to a couple of the new Tatty Button stamps from Creative Expressions, thought this one suited the sentiment.  The sentiment is from a set of stamps which i purchased many years ago and not too sure where they are from, it’s possible they are from Around-To-It stamps. Stamped Tatty in Momento black ink and coloured her using Promarkers.  This week thought it would be fun to use an embossed front to add a little interest to the white space.  Didn’t think the card needed any more embellishments but tell me what do you think?

Just wanted to say THANK YOU for all the constructive feedback and comments on last weeks cards, it was fantastic to read each and every one.  Hope you all have a great week and stay well and healthy.  I’m still not over my latest cold but am hopeful that is it coming to an end very soon.

Thanks for dropping by:-)


  1. Very nice use of the acetate. Great card.
    Hugs, Sandra

  2. Great card and love your cut out shape and that lovely image and embossing.


  3. This is a wonderful card, I love the beautiful shaped aperture, and so glad to see a Tatty buttons stamp - I got some at Ally Pally last weekend, and can truly say I have never seen them before - aren't they gorgeous?! Beautiful card, a fantastic make!

  4. Hello there, this is great, I love the way you have Tatty laying nonchalantly on the front and it's a great sentiment. Have a lovely week:0) xxx

  5. Great card, love the shaped aperture to frame that sweet sentiment. Tatty is cute too :)

  6. Am so loving your Tatty Button, a total charmer and a smashing card. Annette x

  7. I just love that sentiment and this is a super way of using acetate. Cute little image too!
    My only comment would be that the colour inside the card, as pretty as it is, seems a little far removed from the colouring on the image... however it may just be on my monitor!
    So pleased to see yet another fab submission!

  8. HI MOH glad you are feeling better than you did
    I love the cleanness of your card and wouldn't add anything as far as embellishments
    Maybe move the fairy up a touch, to overlap the aperture a little
    I think Id have had a lighter colour under the sentiment, that's all
    Super job!

  9. I love how you have the image laying across the bottom of the card - super cute!

  10. i agree with you, massofhair, this card doesn't need any further embellishments - it's perfect - love the aperture, what a great shape!

  11. The little image you used is really cute...and love the colors you used for the image. The inside of the card looks like teal on my monitor...but maybe it's green? Great shape die you used too!

  12. Love the card, Tatty is a great character I can see adding to my own stash as some point too. Simply elegant :-)

  13. Smashing card! Super image and sentiment! :) Another winner by you! :)

  14. Another great card. I love the colour combo - very fresh. x

  15. Great looking at the sentiment through your "window". x

  16. Super card, love the aperture shape.
