Spot the Peel-Off!

The Challenge at "Less is More" this week is to use a Sticker, Sticky Label or Peel Off!

When I first started crafting, I didn't have a die cutting machine and thought that Peel Offs were the Bee's Knees. I have to admit that over the years my opinion has changed but being a squirrel, I still have the odd supplies of them. Here I decided to use a few...but in disguise!
For this one I used a Peel Off of a snowflake within a frame, to act as a mask.
Having gently stuck it down, I inked the card with Versamark and heat embossed it with some WOW twinkly EP. I then removed the Peel off to re-use for a similar process.
The sentiment was die cut and then inked and embossed similarly.
Again I used a Peel Off as a mask and inked a rainbow of colours using sponge daubers. I then stamped a few random dots over the top and embossed in silver, finally removing the Peel Off.
The balloon was die cut using holographic wrapping paper attached to a piece of card for stiffening. The string is from a Memory Box thread die. This postage style rectangle is also from a Memory Box die.
For this final one I once more used a Peel Off as a mask. As the sails were open, I masked that area within the Peel Off with Elmers Rubber Cement, then inked the sky with a Blending brush over a die cut cloud which I moved around as I was inking. The sea was also applied with a blending brush. When dry I rubbed off the cement.
The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.
I don't think I could have used the Peel Off in its original state...what was I thinking when I bought this sheet!
I can't see me using a lilac and gold Peel Off an any project anytime soon (not as is anyway)!


  1. Stunning cards! Thanks for the inspiring use of peel offs!

  2. Beautiful cards and what a clever idea to use the peel offs this way! Have to keep that in mind!

  3. Very clever use of your peel-offs Chrissie. I only kept a few sheets of the ones that didn't make me cringe. If I remember I had a sheet which had lilac and gold butterflies, may have been more use for those, but a ship??? xx

  4. What a great way to use peel-offs. I also have quite a few in my stash from my early days as a card maker, Jo x

  5. This is a fun challenge and I think your cards are super. Love the bold party card!

  6. I just commented on Sarah's post, telling her about my HUGE supply of peel offs. That was all I had when I started making cards!
    I will have to find a way to use them in a inspirational way.
    Your cards... well, always inspirational! Thanks!

  9. I would never have thought to use a sticker in this way! You are always so clever with your cards. I love each and every one of these but especially the sailboat card!

  10. A re -use of the old peel offs...a new trend? ...very clever and creative.

  11. Stunning cards! So pleased there is a challenge to dig out my old peeloffs and use one or two of them. Can't believe how many I bought years ago! xx

  18. Hello Chrissie: Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my Orchids card, please, no need to apologize for not commenting earlier, I know all about Granny duties, having 5 amazing grandchildren myself. I'd drop everything and anything to go pick them up or taking them to their Orchestra or swimming and track and field activities.
    Love this kids so much.
    Your cards are gorgeous, you are so clever and creative.
    Maybe it's my love for the color lilac but that little sail boat in those colors is simply beautiful.
    Again, thank you for visiting my blog.
    Maria Rodriguez.
