Lots of layers

Update as of 13/03

Apologies to all fans of our Vintage Stamping Challenges, we seem to have technical difficulties in bringing you the latest challenge. Be sure we are working to resolve the issue and hope to resume normal service ASAP. Please bear with us!


When  my teammate at Vintage Stamping Challenges chose Lots of Layers as the March theme I thought yeah... stash busting ! Of course I could have layered stencils and stamps but using up some of my excess paper make me feel virtuous. I chose a freebie pack that came with a magazine. The colours were a bit too pastel for my liking but associated with the kraft cardstock they immediately looked more "adult".

My focal image is the Dancing Girl by Flonzcraft, fun and chic at the same time. (You can also get her as part of this full sheet). She is simply stamped with black dye ink on one of the paper from the pack.
Once stamped, I die-cut the notebook edge (MFT) for optimum placement.

If you look closely at the photos you'll see the papers are only stuck by the middle and that leaves me free to distress or curl the edges, which I decided not to do in the end but if I change my mind...
The technique is very simple and the card is quick to assemble, all the papers are cut as rectangles of decreasing sizes and stuck together. But I did spend an awful long time pushing paper to decide in which order they should be layered!

A few die-cuts for embellishments from Core'dination White wash (I'm using off cuts only, stash busting...)
There you have it LOL!
I hope you are inspired by what the Design Team made and join us over at Vintage Stamping Challenge, you could win a $20 voucher to spend at Flonzcraft, our lovely sponsor. Your make doesn't need to be Vintage but will need to showcase some stamping (rubber, clear, foam etc...) but NO digis.
Thanks for coming by,


  1. Would you believe I was looking at this image on Leo's web site earlier and wondering if I needed it. It looks so striking against the yellow and great way of interpreting the theme Christine.

  2. Fantastic layers and a wonderful image

    Love Chrissie xx

  3. Elle est superbe !! Un excellent moyen de "caser" ces papiers un peu trop flashy en plus, en les couplant avec du kraft l'effet n'est pas du tout le même tu as raison !!!
    Et puis, j'adore cette image moi aussi.. :)
    Bravo pour ta victoire au dernier challenge de PaperArtsy, veinarde !!!! :D Bisous

  4. I thought the same as I read this! (Just not jet took a dive in my paperbox) You combined the papers in a super way! And that silhouette looks perfect!

  5. Love your card. Silhouette images are so striking. Glad I came across this post cos the new challenge at FSC hasn't been posted. At least I know what the theme is now and maybe you can push some buttons and get the post up. Hugz

  6. Oops, wrong one. That should be VSC not FSC. Hugz
