Peg stamps again

Now I've dug out all my old peg stamps - some of them must be over 20 years old - I've got very keen on using them again.


You have no idea how many false starts I've had at making a card for the current Less is More challenge, a one layer card with the theme Curve. Just as I was starting to make my first card, I realised it was more than one layer. I made a replacement - and realised there was nothing curved on it. The part-made cards have been set aside to complete some other time, and I finally settled on this.

I used an arch template to cut a curved mask and placed it asymmetrically on the card, then stamped various flowers and leaves using my Rubberstamp Tapestry peg stamps. I used a fine marker pen to emphasise the edge of the curve and then stamped the sentiment, a recent Making Cards mag freebie, in the "dip" of the curve.

I am also sharing this with Use Your Stuff - Flowers

Fabulous job with those peg stamps. I'm not sure I could make a one layer card they are so hard.

A super pretty design and equally pretty colours here Jane. Great take on our curve challenge with those added dash lines too. Thanks for playing along at Less is More this week.

Great minds think alike! I've dug mine out too - maybe I will join you in this challenge as my first effort was not one layer doh! A very pretty card and beautifully CAS.

Very pretty Jane. I've never had much success with my peg stamps, maybe it's time to try again.

Super card Jane - time to dig my peg stamps out I think. You could have started a 'comeback' :)

A super idea for a curve on your card. The peg stamps look lovely. I've several sets that should be brought out. A super one layer card Jane. Barbxx

Great idea to use your peg stamps within your curved area. A lovely mix of colours too.
