Time for Something a Little Different 'Clean and Simple'

Hi folks,
Well here's something a little bit different from me. I have to say that I find it really hard to refrain from using lots of scrummy papers and flowers etc so clean and simple is not really part of my vocabulary, but here goes:

I have to say that once I started I kinda got carried away!

 The gorgeous poppy stamp is from Hero Arts and as always is coloured with Promarkers. The beautiful embossing folder is courtesy of Marianne D.
Well hope you like it and happy crafting!

I am entering these into the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes - #106 'Clean and Simple'
Less Is More - #53 'Aqua'


  1. Wow Clare, these are just gorgeous. That poppy stamp is fab, it looks lovely in all three colours.
    Who said you can't do C&S, NOT ME!

  2. Hi
    Fabby it.....
    LOVE Poppies....
    Hugs sylvie

  3. Super cards, the aqua one is such a gorgeous shade. I like the 'cut out' embossing folder, a nice touch.
    Love Sheila x

  4. What lovely cards.
    They are a little more intricate and layered than our genre but theya re really pretty and so 'clean and simple' comapred to your usual style
    Thank you very much for joining us
    "Less is More"

  5. It's SO hard at first to refrain from adding layer and layers... but eventually you'll get used to leaving total white space on your cards... completely blank areas of cardstock with no adornments whatsoever (what horror!)
    These cards are lovely, they are simple in design, but are still multi-layered.
    We'd love to see more of your submissions and feel sure that you'll soon be brave enough to leave some genuine white space!
    Thanks so much
    "Less is More"
