Peeling off the Peeloffs!

The LIM challenge this week is to use a  sticker, sticky label or peel-off.  I can't believe how many peeloffs I have, most bought years ago before I did much stamping and probably before dies were even invented!! LOL! 
I started by making a trifold aperture card using white linen cardstock.  I made the aperture using a Sue Wilson 'Double Pierces Square' die.  I had to run it through my Big Shot a few times as it was going through two thicknesses of card.  The black peeloff is a Rennie Mackintosh style image, which I attached to a piece of acetate before colouring with Sharpie pens.  I coloured on the back and the front of the image to make the colour more intense.  The sentiment is also a peeloff.  The light's not brilliant today, so it was hard to get a good photo.  The card looks better in the photo below,  although the leaves are actually bright green! 

This photo shows the card open. 

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:


While I had the sheet of peeloffs out, I used a few more to make a 'not so CAS' card.
The peeloff image is attached to white card and coloured with Promarkers. The corners and sentiment are peeloffs too.  I made an embossed background with Creative Expressions 'Art Deco Rose Swirl' embossing folder, as the pattern is similar to the image.  As this embossing folder is a NBUS (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff) one I've had for a little while, I'll be popping over to Darnell's blog to share this card.   For anyone who has never heard of the NBUS challenge, it's a challenge to use something that you've never used before.  It could be something new, or something that's been gathering dust in the back of a cupboard and you've never got round to using.  There's a link on my side panel, so I hope you join in.

  12. Oh, yes, I've certainly got stickers that predate dies by a LONG time!! These particular stickers are just gorgeous, Liz, and ones I've never seen before. You have showcased them brilliantly on your two cards! (Thanks for the tip to color on both sides of a piece of acetate!) I appreciate your kind promotion and thank you for playing in my NBUS Challenge #7! Hugs, Darnell

  14. The stickers you have used for these two cards are extremely pretty and well worth an outing here Liz and they are probably due a revival anyway as is the way of things. As the saying goes 'what goes around, comes around'. I love that NBUS embossing folder too and it complements the Mackintosh type stickers beautifully. x

  15. Two lovely cards Liz. The LIM card is particularly stylish. Perhaps we should all get our peeloffs out again.

    I recently lost a follower then like you managed to follow myself too. I hope Windows isn't playing up again. Barbxx

  22. I had these stickers because I love CRM - in fact maybe I still have them! They look fab and really were the die cuts of their day!

  23. These are 2 amazing cards and would not guess the main images are peel-offs! Your clever treatment of the folds, the pretty embossed background on #2, take elevated these sticker images so much. Great work on using your NBUS stickers to make 2 very pretty cards! TFS & Hugs
