Happiness is a handmade card



Less is More week #315 - OLC Opposites

Hi LIMettes and happy Saturday! It's a new clean and simple card making challenge at Less is More, and this week we want you to make one layer cards (OLCs) featuring opposites

We're still celebrating our 6th birthday all month long, and this week we have a prize on offer from Seven Hills Crafts run by the lovely Tara who is also this month's guest designer. Seven Hills Crafts is an online retail store specialising in importing quality craft supplies from the USA. Do head over to our blog to see Tara's card and remember to leave her some comment love!

I've got three cards to share today, which all use Distress Inks. The first two are stamped images and the third card used ink applied through a stencil.

Card 1 - sunshine and clouds

Card 2 - cat and mouse

Card 3 - black and white

Thanks for stopping by this week and I'll see you again soon!


  1. the cuteness of that cat and mouse!!

  2. What a fabulous array of delightful cards, Esther. Love how you explored different interpretation's of this week's theme. Even so, your first card is my favourite. Love how vibrant this card is. It will surely brighten the recipient's day.

  3. Well, this theme really suited you Esther, with your trio of terrific-ness (is that a word? haha). Fabulous fading background on the first card and that black and yellow combo works so well together. The second card is adorable and cute - such a sweet image and your final one (think we were on the same b&w theme vibe) is dramatic, elegant and classy. Love them all. xx

  4. You rocked this challenge, Esther! I love all three designs - the rich yellow on the first card makes me smile, the cute cat and mouse are gorgeous and the black and white design is so dramatic. Loads of inspiration :) Have a great week xx

  5. They are beautiful as usual but what struck me this week was your never-exhausted ability to match sentiment to design. They are just right!

  6. Such a pretty card with beautiful sponging...and the card with the cat is super cute too!

  7. All are great ideas. The cat and mouse is adorable. That was one of my ideas. 😜

  8. Simply FANtastic Trio Esther! Each one is a perfect example of opposites and so perfectly stamped, sponged and coloured. Can't pick a favourite as they are all so awesome! Brilliant work and have a good week. x

  9. You completely nailed this challenge, Esther. Your masked blending on the first one is so crisp, and loving the gentle blended background on your second and the drama of your third. All so different yet wonderfully CAS. Hope you're having a good week x

  10. 3 beautiful cards, love all of them x

  11. Fab projects Esther ! They all illustrate so beautifully this new challenge ! Love the bright and vibrant colour of your first card, the critters of the second are so cute and my favourite one is the third one with these black and white curly leaves and stems ! Beautiful ! Have a good day !

  12. Thanks Esther for your lovely comments and the tip on changing the border. Love your cards. They are all unique but I love the animals

  13. Thank you for commenting on my blog. Love the name of your blog too. I'm a crystal healer in my spare time lol! Oh yes, great card too - always inspiring

    1. I think you're the first person who's spotted that! Yes, deliberately chosen both for the beautiful colour and the symbolism/properties. Thanks for the lovely comment :)

  14. Your cards are different but all are stunning.
    The first is so happy! Love how clouds look on yellow. I'd never thought of using this color for the sky.

    The secibg is extremely cute. And the third is classy and elegant!
