Less is more

Hello again, I just thought I'd make a simple card for the Less is more sketch challenge. I can't believe how much hassle this one caused!
 This is the second card blank. First time the word stamp didn't cling properly and fell off onto the card blank so I thought I'd get away with turning it over. Then I got brown ink from my finger on the card blank, so I turned it inside out.....and the stamp fell off again! Another rummage in the drawer found another thank you stamp so I got another card blank out and tried again....Yahoo...did it. In this case less was definitely more - work that is!

Thanks for looking

Helen xx


  1. A smear of glue form a glue stick onto the acrylic block often helps when cling stamps are uncooperative!
    Super card now however!
    Thanks so much

  9. Oh Helen - I do feel for you. This happens to me so many times! I find a glue stick ad Chrissie mentioned or a quick spray of Crafters' Companion Stick & Spray normally does the trick. Lovely card.
