New Challenge at Less Is More!



Hello friends!

It's time for a new challenge at Less Is More! The next week we'd like you to craft based on this sketch:


 I love the curves on the sketch! I ended up being a bit naughty with the sketch in both of my cards but let's have a look at them anyway! :) STAMPlorations is sponsoring the June challenges at Less Is More. Play along for a chance to win! Also, the LIM Design Team has fabulous samples for you in our challenge blog HERE. Don't miss any of them!


Now let's see what I made. 

Card 1 Summer Flowers

Immediately after seeing this sketch I knew I wanted to play with patterned paper, the sketch seemed perfect for it! I decided to stretch the middle part of the sketch to get more white space -I did want to see how the card would look with patterned paper on both ends. I do like it! A bit naughty with the sketch though! ;) The hello-die is by STAMPlorations and the heat embossed friend-word is by MFT. I added some clear drops for shine. A very simple card! 


Card 2  Christmas Flowers

More naughtiness happening here... This time the sentiment is not at all where it should be! Bad Nonni! However... I do like this card too! Looks like I'm enjoying being rebellious! Let's hope my LIM bosses won't sack me. I promise to sit on a naughty step if that helps!

I've used my favorite snowflake die along with a curve edge die, patterned paper, MFT sentiment stamp and one single black half-pearl. The black sentiment looked very lonely being the only black thing so I added the pearl to keep company to the sentiment! The white panels are piped up with fun foam for extra dimension. 

The poinsettia patterned paper comes from a stack I won from ABC Christmas Challenge and I'm happy to play along again with this card! The current challenge is M= More Than One and I have more than one flower + more than one curve! I'd also like to join:

Simon Says Monday Challenge: Vacation (I chose Christmas Holiday)


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

  4. So happy Sarah hasn't grounded you!!! :D Love these cards, Nonni. They're both gorgeous. The patterned paper is such a fab pop of vibrant colour on the first one, and I really like the extended clean space which works perfectly. The Christmas card is lovely; really beautiful patterned paper and a very elegant snowflake. Fantastic! Have a great weekend x

  5. I love your cheeky designs, Nonni :) I wish that I had thought of reversing the sketch and using patterned paper/colour around the wavy area. Your Christmas card is fabulous and definitely a design that you could use for bulk making! I hope you have a fab weekend x

  13. There's no mistaking that you've been influenced by the sketch, you didn't get naughty, at least not more than I usually get playing with sketches:)
    One fun summery one, one warm and Christmasy. Nice job!
