Hello my friends. For this post I must say I was inspired by the recipe from the Less is More challenge - use peel offs. I don't think they realized what they were going to start!
Currently I'm trying to bring some order to my craft room and all the rooms messed up by crafty stash. I have discovered oodles of stuff amongst which more peel offs!
I decided to make a Christmas card. I started with the one below. I placed the outline sticker on the other side of kraft card so it would contrast and fussy cut it. I used the heartfelt creations stamp and inked it with hazelnut adirondak ink and stamped on a square 6x6 card base. I added some stars from same sticker sheet and added the Holy family with pinflair gel.
Then I was on a roll. I saw the other stickers and decided to go for a second card.
So this time I used the shepherd and sheep and again stuck them on kraft card and fussy cut them.
This time I went for a strip of words. I masked off the edges and stamped with Claritystamp stamps and same hazelnut ink. I tried to offset the stamp so it looks more like patterned paper. I also added some shading to edges with same ink and a make up sponge.
Then I stamped the star and added a small gem to it. I shaped the figures and stuck them down.
And then whilst rummaging I found this topper that I had made ages ago and thought... why not?
So card no.3 was born.
I stuck the outline sticker on a sheet of double sided adhesive and added gilding flakes to it. I then backed it onto white card and trimmed it back. I matted it on kraft and black card and attached it to base with foam pads.
I added sentiment all round from border peel off stickers.
I would like to enter these cards in the following challenges:
