It's recipe week over at Less is More and the theme is 'Sticker, sticky label or peel-off'. The DT have made some wonderful cards and already there are some extremely clever entries as well. Who would have thought that using a peel-off as a mask could be so effective?!
I didn't have much time to play but did need to make some cards in a hurry, to enclose with last week's snippets prizes. So I turned to some stickers and a sentiment stamp and came up with six of these little cards:
- 3.75" x 3.75" square white card blank
- sentiment stamp that came with the All-Occasion 'That Folder' set and Memento 'London Fog' ink (softer than jet black) - stamped using the Misti, which of course made doing six cards the same a real breeze
- the triple flower 'Hydrangea' sticker is by Martha Stewart and even came with the little pearls on, so it was just a matter of popping it in place
As I said, very quick and easy and I feel I cheated!
You haven't cheated at all, Di! You've just proved that it doesn't need to take ages to produce something really beautiful. xxReplyDelete
Oooh those flowers look so delicate and pretty!!ReplyDelete
Super sweet card, Di--love that floral sticker!ReplyDelete
Pretty and elegant Di.ReplyDelete
How gorgeous Di....you haven't cheated at all...it's all in the design and yours is a beauty. Have a lovely week xxReplyDelete
A lovely card Di - I often find the quickest cards are my favourites!ReplyDelete
Fab card Di! I agree with the others, it's all in the design, and this one is lovely! Those are really pretty flowers - great choice. Thanks for sharing at Less is More!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous Di, those flowers are beautiful.ReplyDelete
Well, you've just proved it doesn't have to take hours to make a pretty card Di. I think this is superb.ReplyDelete

I know exactly what you mean but sometimes needs must... They'll be just as special to the recipients. The flowers are so pretty. XReplyDelete
LOL yeah. it does feel like cheating using a ready made up embelly like one that already has pearls on. I think we're all so used to fiddling around assembling multiple die cuts into something complicated.ReplyDelete
I do like the idea of a Misti. I've got an old Fiskars stamping press, but I'd not had much success with getting a decent stamp impression. You guys using your misti makes me think I should get it out and have another go!
I still have my Fiskars Stamping Press here and found it was pretty good - until I got a Misti and realised just how great it was to be able to re-ink a stamps and have it stamp in the exact same place - either on the same card or when making a batch. Money well spent. Now and then places do have a good discount day - that's the day to buy!Delete
Beautiful card, Di. I'm all for quick and easy :)ReplyDelete
Very pretty Di and those flowers are certainly the Rolls Royce of stickers with their little pearl centres. Shows that simple can be beautiful. xReplyDelete
