New Challenge at Less Is More!

Hi friends!

We have a new fun challenge for you at Less Is More:

I had a bit more time on my hands finally and got to create two cards for your inspiration... Hopefully you'll like them! For more ideas by our fabulous design team, click HERE. This time Skye is our guest designer and I love the die cuts she used in her card! Great to have you joining in, Skye! Uniko continues as our June sponsor. 

Card 1, Christmas (above)
In my first card all the W+9 die cuts are from my "bits" box... And so is the die cut white rectangle, already pre-stamped with a Finnish "Merry Christmas"-sentiment! All I did was adding some Wink of Stella to the pinecones and berries, glued everything together and assembled the card... Very fast and easy!

With this card I'd like to enter:
Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge: Inspiration photo (I chose the colors red, green and brown + branches)

Spring has been so busy I've completely forgot about this challenge... Thank you Trina for reminding me!!

Card 2, Ocean (below)
In my second card I used some pre-made Brusho water colored card + pre- Copic colored and pre-die cut starfish, all from the "bits" box. I die cut the Brusho card with my favorite edge die (Lil'Inker) and assembled the card. The sentiment is from a set I got from my crafting buddy Jill when she visited Finland about a month ago! I love the simplicity of the sentiments in this set.

With this card I'd like to join:
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Bright and Cheerful

Thanks for popping by and I hope to see you joining us! 


  1. Great card for Christmas. Love how you used "bits" to create.

  2. Your Christmas card is so pretty Nonni...CAS perfection! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Merry Monday!! :0)

  3. Two really beautiful cards here Nonni! Isn't it great to be able to create cards so quickly? I love the festive look of the first card with those super die cuts and that wink of stella will make a big inpact when the Christmas lights hit it. Your brusho ocean panel is so amazing! What a brilliant card. Thank goodness you got to use that piece. xx

  4. You treated us with two fabulous cards, Nonni! The Christmas card makes a fantastic masculine card... you should enter it in this month’s CAS Christmas Masculine card challenge. Your second card is absolutely beautiful... that Brusho panel is gorgeous... love the diecut edge design. Awesome use of items from your bits box. xx

  5. Love your interpretation of the inspiration photo from Merry Monday, thanks for sharing this week.

  6. Gorgeous Brushos watercolored wavy border with your stamped starfish. I like your blue..white space too. TFS Nonni and joining us at CAS Watercolour. Hugs..

  7. Two fabulous cards Nonni! Love the sweet pine cones and sprigs for your Christmas card.

    The ocean card is gorgeous with the brushos curved panel. The starfish is adorable cut into a banner. Great bits!! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!

  8. Love your pine cones, Nonni! And your ocean card is gorgeous! The Brusho colors are so pretty and I love the shaped edge! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!

  9. WOW! Looks like you had some fun creating from your bits box Nonni and 2 delightful makes. I have to say the second one is my favourite just because I adore the colour combo and dreamy seaside theme. But love that you've put together a perfect Christmas make too (in June!). Have a great week and thanks for all your support on the team.

  10. Nonni, both cards are stunning. Your Christmas card is perfectly masculine and CAS. Love it.
    Your ocean card is stunning, brusho backgrounds are also my favorite, I love the shaped edge. It's like a rolling wave.
    Thanks for joining us at CAS Christmas :)

  11. Oooh, this is gorgeous! I love that watercolor strip. I think the Colorburst is very similar to the brusho, isn’t it? I don’t think I’ve ever used mine. This inspires me to get them out and play around with them. Thanks for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.

  12. Two wonderful cards, Nonni!
    Love the clean look of the Christmas card. The die-cut pine cones and the berries are so pretty! Thank you for sharing with us at CAS Christmas!
    The curved Brusho ocean panel card is gorgeous too.

  13. The richness of that yummy chocolate brown is gorgeous with the pops of red and green in the foliage, Nonni! Your brusho background is awesome ... so perfect with that sweet starfish image ... it seems to be sparkling on my screen! Hugs, Anita :)

  14. Wow! Two really beautiful cards, Nonni ! Incredible the wonderful bits you have in your box ! Your Christmas card is fabulous but I’m totally swooning over your second card ! What a stunning piece of Brushos and so beautifully paired with the lovely starfish. Gorgeous design, love it ! x

  15. Fabulous 'ocean' card Nonni, that Brushos panel is amazing

  16. Isn't it great how quick it is to make cards from our bits! Loving your Christmas card, wonderfully put together and who knew that a brown card base could look so classy?! And your brusho panel is divine, what gorgeous tones xx
