Tuesday Stash Challenge #3

Several weeks ago Laura Fredrickson threw out a challenge to e-mail her with any stash stuff we might have that could be used in a challenge with her. Imagine my surprise and jaw-dropping delight (grin) when she e-mailed me about my challenge to use outline stickers. I have lots of these. Lots. So does Laura. : ) In fact, after this I sweetened the pot and added five sheets of the outline stickers (brand new, still in package) to my Cards 4 Kids blog candy.

I made these three cards, but for some reason only hit the gold ones, didn't use any of my silver ones. I have to say this first one is my favorite. This gold outline sticker is from a sheet called "Vintage", attached to the front of a piece of vellum. I colored her from the back with Prismacolor pencils/baby oil, then cut a piece of white cardstock to attach behind her so the background would not show through. Attached the vellum to the Anna Griffin DP; also cut out a matching section and attached it on foam tape in the lower left corner, stuck a little flower outline below it. The chandelier is from a new set that I just got from Firecracker Designs. Colored it with Prismas, cut it out, added yellow Stickles to the candles, and Tiara stickles to the "crystals"; attached directly to the vellum. Sentiment is from Stampin Up! stamped directly onto the vellum.
Stamps: Parisian Romance by Firecracker Designs; Stampin Up! Rosevine Wreath.
Paper: The Paper Studio vellum and CS, Anna Griffin DP.
Ink: Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Stickles, foam tape, outline stickers.
This card was very simple. Red CS base, with Basic Gray Bittersweet attached after using MS Lattice punch on edges. Attached the gold outline heart and Love to a decorative piece salvaged from a gift box, cut out around the heart, attached that to the heart shape doily. Inked up the doily and attached to the background.
Stamps: None.
Paper: The Paper Studio, gift box.
Ink: Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Outline stickers, doily, MS border punch.
This last card was another simple one. These doves and the words were attached to a piece of vellum, then it was punched with MS lace doily punch, edges inked with Wisteria. The Anna Griffin DP was also punched with the doily punch, edges inked.
All papers were layered and attached to lavender CS base, edges of that inked as well. Voila'...a simple, pretty card. All of these outline stickers are from different sheets. I didn't even put a dent in my stash, but sure had fun with this challenge. Thanks Laura!
