Purple Peace

Hi All

I am back with another Christmas card.

Today I have a card inspired by the 'Purple and Gold' at Less is More and the peace challenge at One Layer Simplicity Challenge plus the sketch at Sovushka Slavia


I had the idea to use this burst stamp from The Ton as a wreath for a while but hadn't got around to giving it a go. Finally I have stamped it up with gold delicata ink and simply stamped the 'peace' sentiment, added a few gems, enamel dots, rounded the corner and done!

I think it works as a wreath in gold...next time I will choose green to give it a more traditional feel.

I would like to say a goodbye to Chrissie at LIM for giving us so many wonderful challenges, you will be missed. I am sure Sarah and the team will take this challenge over in style and make Chrissie very proud.

  2. Wow, that Burst stamp looks amazing! I follow The Ton on Instagram and I like everything I see... better sit on my hands for a while!! I love the way the image and sentiment work so well in our purple and gold challenge colours, really simple and classy. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  3. That burst/wreath stamp was a great find! Once inked up it becomes a favorite, I'm sure I'll see you use this one more in the time to come. You're great at using your stash in different ways.

  17. Sandie, what a beautiful card! That burst stamp works perfectly as a wreath, but I saw it as a golden halo around earth, given the sentiment you chose...as if earth is the hole surrounded by golden starlight. So wonderful! Thanks for sharing it with the OLS Challenge!
