SRM Stickers

Welcome to our Operation Write Home/SRM Sticker Skip, if you've arrived here from the Barb's blog you're in the right place!


We were given three SRM stickers to use for our cards, I used two of the three in my design.

I kept my card clean and simple using Cuttlebug embossing folders for texture and interest.
I only have one regret...  I used Spellbinders dies for my sticker & wasn't thinking things through since I only had one sticker.  I had a hard time getting it centered on my white circle so it had to be removed several times.  If I would have attached the sticker to a piece of white paper and THEN cut it out it would have been so much easier!  If you're working with stickers and dies I hope that helps you :)

The papers used are Mohawk Bright White and Astrobrights Gamma Green card stock.

Be sure to comment on each stop for a chance to win fun SRM prizes!

It's time to send you on to Yolanda's blog next, enjoy!

Thanks for visiting my blog today -

Gorgeous! Great use of the tiny sentiments and different embossing folders.

Cheryl L. said...

I'll have to give the white on white embossing a try - very elegant!

Ellen said...

Jan I love this CAS card! Embossing it makes it so elegant and the sticker worked perfectly!

Carmen O. said...

OMGosh this is just perfect! I love how embossing adds such wonderful dimension and you doubled up on it. Beautiful work!

Rose H said...

I love how you combined textures with two embossing folders. I might have to try that now. Thanks also for the tip for using stickers with dies.

pennyd said...

I was chuckling as I read your post - I can't tell you how many times I've done the same thing with a sticker or stamp. Love your card, though, thanks!

Deborah Johnson said...

Very sweet - love the embossing!!!

Newlexness said...

I love the embossing folders, looks like that will be an investment I need to make some day. Thank you for the tip about using stickers. I have done the same thing with stamping (stamping first and then trying to cut the image out, much easier to cut first then stamp.) Thank you for sharing your creation. :)

Kathy S said...

I love the use of 2 different texture plates - great idea!

Penny L. said...

Oh, my! I LOVE your card....white with great 2 types of dry embossing! Very classy & makes big impact. thanks for the tip on sticker placmement!

Nancy M said...

I love how CAS this is but the texture adds so much! Thanks for the tip; I don't always remember to do it that way myself!

Sue D said...

Lovely card--I like the different embossing and thanks for the tip on attaching the sticker first before die cutting.

Paula S. said...

Very classy CAS design Jan! Using the tiny stamp in multiples is a great idea. It keeps them from disappearing.

Marlene Diefendorf said...

Ooooo Jan, who says a sticker can't look elegant? This is a beautiful CAS card! Great tip on adhering you sticker before you punch. Yes, I'll definitely try this.

Kathryn said...

I love the white on white design with the contrasting layers. I agree that placing the sticker first and then cutting it out is the way to go.

Verna Angerhofer said...

I love it. Lots of texture and white on white with just a pop of color from the sticker is beautiful!

Jules said...

Jan, this is just fantastic! Love all the embossing & the medallion used for the tree sticker. You've given some great ideas for using stickers on my cards.

Sandy Allnock said...

The CAS design is just awesome and really shows off the stickers perfectly, Jan!! Great job!!

RaNae Ellett said...

I love your use of the SRM Sticker, very simple, classy embossing framed by the colored cardstock which matches the color of the tree in the sticker. Very simple and very elegant. Well Done!!!

Holly Iossa (Homeschool Homestead) said...

Love the classic look.

I like your use of two embossing folders, I have only used one on a card so it is new idea for me. Your card is beautiful.

Yvonne B. said...

I really like your use of the different embossed textures on the white cardstock. Really beautiful. And thanks for sharing your "lessons learned" about mounting the sticker to cardstock first and then cutting. I find myself thinking of stuff like that after the fact! Lovely card--thanks for sharing.

Apredmore said...

Really pretty! I love the combination of textured papers.

Thanks Jan for the idea to use the die cutter after you put the sticker on. I probably would have struggled the same way. Love your CAS card.

I like how you used two different embossing folders, never thought of that. Thanks.

Your tip works with punches, too. First stamp and then center the stamped image in the bottom of the punch to see what you are doing.
