Less is More - Turquoise & Lilac

It has been a busy few weeks and will continue to be a bit hectic over the next several months, but I will still find some time to hit the studio and tennis balls of course!

We have a new challenge starting over at Less is More!  Our theme for this week is Turquoise & Lilac.  I love these two colors together, so this will be a fun one.  I was thinking of a few options, but realizing it is getting close to Christmas and I better focus my efforts.  I came up with a bit of a modern Christmas card.  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

This is a simple card.  I started by stamping my triangles and easily making them into Christmas trees by adding the stars.

I stamped the splatters in the background and simply added the sentiment to the bottom.

I popped the trees on foam tape!

I thought it need a bit more, so I added a few tiny stars around the trees.

Here is a close up of the card.  You can see the tiny stars a bit better from this angle.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!



  1. This is fabulous Susan. The contemporary look of those trees with the splotches behind them makes this a card anyone would be happy to receive at Christmas. Love your use of the colour theme. Have a great week.

  2. I love this <3 So bright and contemporary, and a beautiful layout. The splattered background behind the tree patterns looks fab! I know what you mean about Christmas... I'm starting to think I need to get a move on! Enjoy your week x

  3. This colour combo looks fabulous for a trendy Christmas design, Susan! I love the bokeh background as a contrast to the graphic trees :)

  4. Love your graphic trees - the colour combo is so pretty, all the samples are gorgeous!

  5. Think you've rocked this challenge Susan! A totally fun, vibrant and funky take on a Chistmas card. Love the bokeh style BG with the retro patterned trees on top. Awesome. x

  6. I can not say anything other than: I love your card! Love the splattered background ! As I explain in my blog before even seeing it, I made a very similar card. I only discovered it the next day. I sincerely apologize. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Super card, Susan. I love the modern feel and the layout. The splatters and stars are a great background xx
