One sheet wonder… vintage Peace and Joy

Hello!

Another one sheet wonder to share with you, this time using am old piece of patterned paper I was gifted which has a vintage feel so I teamed it with browns and creams and used the fabulous Peace and Joy stamps and dies to decorate.

Used a similar one sheet wonder as the one I shared last month using the Merry Moose stamp set but changed up the first card as I made an error when cutting and also added the slim panel for 5 into card 3 as I made an error putting them together thinking there should have been 4 strips not 3!

I mounted each of the panels onto the Early Espresso coloured coredinations card (I’ve found a stash of this in one of the boxes in my craft room so was happy to use it again). Then created panels using cream laid paper and very vanilla cardstock.

Once again I went to town with embossing and added some ribbons from the stash on most of the cards.

The focal images of the Peace and Joy set I did in a few different ways. Either I stamped them in Mossy Meadow or Soft Suede and then added a layer of die cutting. With the very narrow dies I generally layered them so they were two or three tall. And the glimmer paper came out again just for a few bits. And yes there is glitter everywhere as a result. (I will never buy it again… so must use up my stash and get rid of it!)

So here are the close ups…

Love how they all came out and think that the Peace and Joy bundle is one of my favourite ever sets for versatility. It just works so well for creating features as well as little elements such as the holly leaves which create lovely embellishments.

Creating all these cards probably only took about 3 hours if that! You can get in a nice rhythm and almost do it as a conveyor crafting session … paper and card cutting, then stamping, then die cutting and fussy cutting, then sorting layouts and choosing ribbons, then embossing, then adhering. Or at least that’s the way I did it. So ideal if you are a last minute Christmas card maker and haven’t started yet.

I can really recommend the Peace and Joy bundle. And at £42.50 for the bundle it’s not a bad price considering the versatility.

Happy crafting!
