New Challenge at Less Is More!

Hi friends!

We are back with another challenge at Less Is More. This time we are CASEing one of our DT members, the fabulous Susan, whose birthday it is today! Happy Birthday, Susan! Susan is a wizard with Copic coloring and here's the card she has made for us to CASE:

Now let's get into the cards I made inspired by Susan!

Card 1 
The girl and the bear

In this card I used one of my favorite Christmas stamps from last year. This W+9 stamps image is so cute! I've colored the image with Copics, die cut it, and then die cut the shape 4 times out of plain white card. I glued all the die cut pieces together to avoid using dimensional adhesive -I love the way you can use scrap card for creating the dimension and saving your 3d adhesive for something else!

Card 2 
Christmas Elf 

In this card I've used the same die cutting technique. This MFT elf is not a Christmas stamp but I think it works for Christmas too! Again my coloring is made with Copics. The Christmas sentiment is Finnish (as in my first card). This challenge was perfect for making quick, fun Christmas cards! I embellished my elf with one die cut snowflake to make him look a bit more Christmassy. :) 

My apologies for the the blue tint in my white card in the photos... The lighting condition were not that great when I was taking the photos!

  5. Both of them are beautiful Nonni ! I really love this adorable girl giving hugs to the big bear ! You're totally right, this stamp set is so cute ! You have nothing to envy to Susan's Copics colouring, you also did a wonderful work on both cards ! Fabulous ! Have a great week ! Hugs x

  6. Love your cards...and especially love how you are using the MFT gnome stamp as a Christmas clever, I have to do that! Thank you for sharing my birthday and for all the lovely birthday wishes! xoxo

  10. I love your two CASE cards Nonni. The first one is full of warmth and festive cheer. But your Christmas elf is sensational. What an amazing image. Sorry I'm so late commenting on this but my UK visit, illness, a trip to the hospital and then an iPad that refused to work with Blogger all got in the way! xx
