Sticker skip, sticker skip, sticker skip... I can't say that three times without messing up!
There's been some discussion lately at OWH TV about "Sticker Sneeze" so we challenged each other to make cards using stickers - no sneezing allowed!
My goal today is to show you how I used stickers to make a collection of cards for Operation Write Home. I started by searching my stash of goodies for some stickers, my kids offered to share theirs with me and I did look them over. They were all too small for what I was thinking. I did find a few Stampin' Up! Simply Scrappin' kits that were partially used and thought they'd be a fun challenge to play with.
Here's a picture of what I started with. You'll notice I've printed a few sketches to refer to as well.
This is one of my first cards, my layout is Splitcoast Stampers SC#327. I used one of the largest flower stickers in place of my stamped image, I tried to use the cardstock in the kit and the "Mom" is a digital sentiment from a Clear Dollar Stamps set. For a little added interest I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder on the Sage Shadow panel.
This next card I put the flower stickers on 1 1/8th" punched circles that I matted with 1 1/4" punched circles. My layout was most likely a sketch but I don't remember where I saw it. I used a Spellbinders ribbon slide for the Miss You sentiment which is also digital by Create With TLC.
For this card I used OWH Sketch #27 for my layout. The flower and strip beside the sentiment are stickers. Happy Mother's Day is a rubber stamp.
Here's OWH Sketch #30, the flower and patterned strip are stickers. I added embossing under the strip using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder on just part of the panel.
This is Splitcoast Stampers SC#327 again.
Can you tell after I got started this became a fun challenge?
And a picture of the work table (kitchen table). I tried to use my old Stampin' Up! punches and keep the tools to a minimum. I like the look of the embossed panels so the Cuttlebug came out. I love the Spellbinders dies and couldn't resist using a couple of those as well.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how I used the stickers from a retired Stampin' Up! Simply Scrappin' kit to make some cards today. Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop to be in the draw for a prize!
