Second post this week and it's only Tuesday!

Well, my Less is More mojo is on overdrive and I haven't made a mess of anything yet, so I made a few more bling cards. These were all very very quick too, which doesn't always go hand in hand with LIM!
My first uses a previously uninked stamp that I got last year. It is a Hero Arts cling stamp called Wreath of leaves. I just added a few gems and a little Hero Arts sentiment.
After that I remembered some other stamps I bought last year, and didn't really get round to using. These are called Joyful Bubbles by Paula Pascual and were an absolute snip at £4.99. I stamped both cards with versafine (Royal purple and majestic blue) then embossed with Kaleidoscope embossing powder, adding a couple of gems too. The first is the blue one...

...with a close up of the sparkle...
The second is the purple one...
...and another close up...
I am thinking this kaleidoscope embossing powder is seriously addictive!

Thanks for looking!

And they're great cards, too, Sally. Love them all but I love the blues, as I would, lol. Just what we need at Christmas - simple, quick designs - people don't appreciate much more anyway, if we're honest. Brilliant and glad you found time to stamp x

Wow you're on a roll Sally! Love these cards and that fab EP. I really like the swirling wreath it reminds me of the weather today, very windy!
I'll let you know if someone posts a link to our singing, there is nothing so far. There are quite a few of us over the past 3 years just put Hampstead Rock choir into youtube and up we come:) I'm usually the tall red head on the back row.
