Hi, how are you? Thanks for stopping by today! It's an extra special day today as we are sharing a lot of projects today with the new STAMPlorations Clear Stickers as part of our STAMPlorations 6th Birthday Celebration week. I had so much fun exploring the stickers and my fellow DT members have even more ideas over on the STAMPlorations blog. There are lots of great prizes up for grabs and many ways to win. You can comment on the blog posts and the designer's blogs, you can link up to the Wishlist Linky Party or share your birthday- or celebration themed creations in the Birthday Linky Party.
For my first card I started by blending Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso Distress Ink onto white card and splattering with water. I left the centre of the card a bit lighter to show off the Artsy Backgrounds sticker I added to the card. Then I heat embossed one of the deers from Yuletide Deer in copper on mahogany card. I stamped sentiments using Joy and finished the sentiment strips with attaching the same sticker from Artsy Backgrounds onto the sentiment strips.
For my second card, I started by stamping the gorgeous mandalas from Bloomdala in light brown before adding a sticker fro Artsy Backgrounds. I added a pink die cut using one of the dies from Bloomdala Bliss: Felicity and finished the card with a sentiment from Bloomdala.
For a quick and easy birthday card I used the Layered Cake Bake to stamp the cake and platter in Distress Oxides. I used a water brush to pull the colour from the outlines to colour the cake and the stand. I also splattered some yellow ink onto the card panel before adding a sticker from Birthday Word Art.
I used Layered Cake Bake and Birthday Word Art to create another quick and easy birthday card. I stamped the candles from Layered Cake Bake in a rainbow of Distress Oxides and added a sticker from Birthday Word Art. I used my Sharpies to colour the cake on the sticker, and my white Signo pen to add some highlights to the word "party" for a fun look.
There are so many fantastic stickers, so I had to create one more card. I started by attaching a sticker from Botanical Backgrounds to a white card panel. I stamped the cute little cacti from Succulently onto white card, coloured them with Copics and fussy cut them. Before attaching them to the card panel I splattered green watercolour for added texture. The sentiment is a sticker from Just Everyday Greetings which I attached to a strip of green card.
If you want to see more inspiration using the stickers, I have created a card kit using the Just Everyday Greetings stickers, you can find the post here.
