Black and White

I had a lovely day out yesterday with my crafty friend, Ruth, at the Malvern craft show.  We managed to fit in a couple of workshop while we were there.  I can't believe I resisted buying any new dies and stamps, despite there being lots to tempt me, but I still managed to come home with quite a few bits and pieces.

A thank you card today for friends who invited us round for dinner recently.  A fairly quick card to make, using up some of my black peel offs.  Am I the only one who still has a huge box full??
The embossing was done with a Creative Expressions 'Dotty Daisy' e/f.  The embossed panel is plain white, although the shadows cast makes some of the dots look grey.  The image and sentiment are both peeloffs, matted and layered using stitched rectangle dies.

I am joining in the following challenges:

    1. Hi Veerle. Unfortunately I didn't use any stamping on this card, so I can't enter it into the challenge. xx

  6. Well done using up some peeloffs Liz and your card looks very elegant. Glad you both enjoyed your day out together yesterday. I enjoyed a workshop today with five friends and ate far too much cake! Barbxx

  8. Really lovely card, great EF and a perfect peel off for your friends. Thank you for joining our 'Black and White only' challenge this week at Allsorts.
    I have an EF very similar but it is called Daisy Trail and instead of the leaves it has dotty lines, I also have those Little Claire wine peel offs, I wouldn't quite say I had a huge box full but still have quite a few and they do come in handy on occasions.

  12. I have a folder full of peel offs still and they are useful occasionally, though I seem to use the words more than some of the images, but I think that they are beginning to come back into fashion again as I have definitely seen more of them being used again, that being said I think these are quite unusual and much more up to date looking than any of those that I have. x

  13. Fabulous card Liz, that peel off image looks great. Love the black and white.
    I got rid of all my peel offs on EBay when I had a massive sort out, kind of wish I didn't now I have seen your wonderful card Lol

  16. I still have lots of peel offs too, mine are organised into albums - when they were first popular you could get albums of transparent pockets with each one divided up the middle to make it perfect for storing peel offs, and all mine are stored in those. I still use the borders and corners a lot and really must get around to using up some of the others - used the way you have done on this gorgeous card they do the same job as the more modern intricate die cuts do.

  20. This is so gorgeous and elegant looking. I love the black and white design and those peel offs are fantastic. I don't think I ever had any myself.

  21. This is a SUPERRR card love the monochrome and the black peeloff, they don't have much respect, but I think they certainly give a GREAT effect. Good to see peel offs being used beautifully. Beautiful embossing. I wasn't sure if the hour and half ride to the show would have been worth it. Sounds like it was.

    1. We had an hour and a quarter ride to get there. Almost all papercraft stands, which was good as some of the other fairly local craft shows seem to be many fabric and wool stands these days . Had a really good day out and as I won free tickets to get in we had extra money to spend on stash. 😉 xx
