It's time for a new challenge over at Less is More and this week our Recipe challenge was a trip down memory lane for me. Interpret this however you like but this week we would like you to use...
Sticky Labels / Stickers / Peel-Offs
I had a stash cull a few years ago and sold most of my peel-offs and stickers when I discovered more about stamps and dies but there were a few I didn't want to part with. I've used some of them on my two cards today.
This first card uses a silver peel-off which has glittered translucent petals and leaves...
I started by die cutting some clear vellum with a stitched oval die. The peel-off was adhered onto this and I coloured behind the clear glittered parts, on the vellum, with FlexMarkers. I then adhered the vellum to some white cardstock cut from the same die so the colour would show through to the front. I then cut a larger stitched oval from the same stack and mounted these onto the card base using 3D foam. The sentiment was heat embossed on white onto some orange cardstock and die cut with a stitched rectangle die.
- Dies: Lil' Inkers - Stitched Ovals; MFT Die-namics - Stitched Rectangles
- Stamp: Clearly Besotted - A Little Sentimental
- Ink: VersaMark
- Embossing Powder: Wow - Opaque Bright White
- Coloured with FlexMarkers
- Vellum, orange cardstock and peel-off from stash
I also used peel-offs on my second card, this time white ones with silver accents...
On some white cardstock I blended a rainbow of Distress Inks and die cut this on the diagonal with a stitched rectangle die. This is a lot bolder than my usual blends but I was really pleased with the results. When completely dry, I adhered the peel-offs. I really like these because they don't look like stickers, they look like they are embossed. The panel was then popped up on 3D foam.
- Ink: Distress Ink - Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Lucky Clover
- Die: MFT Die-namics - Inside and Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangles
- Peel-offs from stash
Moving Along with the Times - Challenge #27 - Clean and Simple
AAA Cards - Game #71 - Blending
I used to use peel-offs on nearly all my cards when I first began cardmaking so this challenge brought it all back. Some of my cards back then were completely shocking but as my clean and simple style is evolved at least I now know that Less really is More!
So, any type of sticker, can't wait to see what you come up with.
