New Challenge at Less Is More!

Hi friends!

We have a new challenge for you at Less Is More and it's something different this time: we are CASEing our January winner, Aileen! I love Aileen's cards and was delighted to CASE her. Here's her card:

Now let's look at the 2 cards I made inspired by Aileen!

Card 1: Flowers in a pot

In this card I used a flower stamp and a stencil by STAMPlorations and dies by My Favorite Things. I love this large, swirly thanks-word and wanted to die cut it from silver glitter card as Aileen did in her card! I was also inspired by Aileen's coloring and tried to mimic the same style a little bit by leaving the center of my flower petals white. My coloring is with Copics in both of my cards. The card base looked a bit too bare so I did some super soft stenciling and just a couple of white paint splatters to keep the look CAS. 

Card 2: Jumbo Flower

Again I'm inspired by the blue flower in Aileen's card! My original plan was to CASE her layout too but I ended up making my own layout, this flower is super large and and it took some time to find a good way to place it. Don't know if I succeeded but I'm at least moderately happy! Again, coloring with Copics and yes, I splattered again... Sorry I can't remember the maker of the flower stamp! 

With this card I'd like to join:

  1. Love this duo of deliciousness Nonni! The sweet little basket of flowers is beautiful and your soft stencilling behind it - well, there's no other word for it than 'superb'. But WOW!! what a fabulous bloom on the second card. That's a really dramatic one and I wish I had that stamp. Stunning! Have a wonderful Easter weekend. xx

  2. Wow Noni love them both, stunning colouring and design. Must dig out that large flower stamp, really love that in the blue mmm. Beautiful

  3. These are both gorgeous, Nonni ... that little bowl of daisies is fabulous against the soft stencilling ... and that big, bold, splattered bloom is a beauty! Wishing you a Happy and Blessed Easter! Hugs, Anita :)

  4. A duo of beautiful cards, Nonni! Love both images you’ve used. The daisies in the pot is adorable and your colouring is on point with Aileen’s. The second oversized bloom is a stunner. Tricky with its size, but you nailed the layout with this one. Super job. Hope you had an egg-cellent Easter. xx

  5. These are beautiful, Nonni. I particularly like how you've used the bowl in the first one. I love seeing your signature white spatters!

  6. Beautiful CASE cards Nonni - love the bowl of flowers on the first one with that delicate stenciled design behind. The second one is equally beautiful using the same colour scheme and idea as Aileen's with your own twist. Happy Easter xx

  7. Nonni, these are beautiful. Love the little pot of flowers, coloured wonderfully and the stencilling is nothing less than perfect. And wooaaahhh, that large bloom is divine! I love it and the gradient of your colour blended petals is just stunning xx

  8. Love your two cards, Nonni, and how you make your own designs ! What a clever idea the little pot for your blue blooms and your background stencilling is just stunning with its softness ! I LOVE this bold blue flower on your second card and you're a pro with your Copics ! Lovely splatters as final touch on both of them ! Hope you had a fabulous Easter break. Have a great week. Hugs x

  9. Hi Nonni! Sorry I’ve been absent for a while, mojo lost and a week of holiday in the sun with my mum, then lots of tv time during Easter. I don’t know about Finland, but in Norway it’s tradition that the channels are showing lots of crime series with several episodes and yesterday we did ‘tv marathon’ seeing one of them, with six episodes in a row. Both your cards are stylish. I like how you used a die cut to make a vase forvtge flowers on your first, and awesome sentiment design too. Big stamps can be tricky, but I like playing with them, and this layout suits it so well.

  10. pretty bloom, luv the sweet CAS card! I am so glad you played along with us at simon says stamp wednesday challenge!
