STAMPlorations Sticker Monday - December Part 1

Welcome to my penultimate Sticker Monday post. This time around I have chosen to focus on the Shine Bright Clear Stickers and how to use them to create motivational cards with a big impact.

All of my cards feature the same style design, a stencilled band of blended ink and a black stamped image with two sentiment stickers.

Card 1

I started by masking an A2 note card with sticky notes, leaving a 2"  band across the centre of the card. I then used the Bloomdala-Bliss-Stencil and distress oxide inks to blend a beautiful pattern.

I stamped 2 feathers using the Trendy-Feathers-2 stamp set Finally I added two sentiments from the Shine Bright Clear Sticker set.

Card 2

This card was created in a very similar way to the first card but looks so pretty in pink. The centre panel was created using the Bloom-Factory-ARTplorations-Stencil and Oxide inks. I stamped the cute little girl using Kathryns-Big-Wishes stamp set and then die cut it using Kathryns-Big-Wishes-Coordinating-Dies.

Card 3

Lastly I have a beautiful Lily card made using the Smile stamp set. I chose to use Oxide inks in Beige tones and blended and Ombre pattern using the Bubbles-ARTplorations-Stencil. In all 3 cards I added the sentiment stickers onto white card, trimmed them down and placed them on foam pads.

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #108 - DT Inspiration

It's time for a new challenge at Paperbabe Stamps, this time the theme is Winter.

I decided to use the theme as an oppertunity to make some extra Christmas cards, when I think winter I automatically think of Christmas as it's such a special time of the year.

I thought it would be fun to challenge myself and use 1 ink colour and one embossing powder per card and see how beautiful I could make my cards.

I chose to use Spectrum Noir Water reactive inks as they can be blended and spritzed to create a faux bleach effect.

For my Burgundy Snowflake Card I used Peaceful Flurries and Sparkle Bright stamp sets, I inked the background with Spectrum Noir's Harmony Water reactive Ink pad -the colour is called Bordeaux

The Green Pine Tree Card I used the Bottle Brush Tree and Sparkle Bright stamp sets, I used another Harmony Water reactive Ink pad - Holly Leaf

The Midnight Blue Reindeer Card was stamped using the Sparkle Bright and Reindeer Fusions stamp set. The background was inked in Silent Night Harmony ink.

STAMPlorations December CAS Card Challenge

Hey there, it's time for a new CAS card challenge rom STAMPlorations, the theme as always in anythign goes btu we have the optional color twist which is Christmas Colors.

I have created a holiday themed card using non Chirstmas products as I am mindfull that not everyone celebrates Christmas or has Christmas items in their crsft stash.

I used the Tis-the-Season-Clear-Stickers as my sentiment. The stickers are amazing to use, I framed it using the same red ink I used to create my background and then matted it onto Black card.  

I created a stenciled background usign the  Bloomdala-Bliss-9-to-16-Masks-ARTplorations-Stencil and some Christmas red and Green ink. It's such a fun way to create a festive feel without going all out Chrsitmas.

For all the details regarding the challenge, how to join in and more inspiration from the STAMPgirls please pop by the blog using the link below.

Paperbabe Stamps challenge #107 - Mid challenge reminder

Welcome to the Mid Challenge reminder for Paperbabe Stamps. The challenge this time is a picture inspiration.

You can use the picture any way you like, take inspiration from the colours, the imagery or both. Just have fun and create a wonderful piece you're proud of.

I chose to use both the colours and the wreath in the picture to inspire my card.

I started by drawing a very light circle on my card to give my a rough guide for my wreath. I stamped the Stag's head using the Reindeer-fusions-stamp-set and then started to add my snowflakes using the Peaceful-flurries-stamps.

I then added some smaller sowflakes using the Sparkle-bright-stamp-set and lastly added tiny snowflakes using the Bottle-brush-tree-stamp-set. I added some gold stamped baubels using the little circle stamps in the Bottle Brush Trees set.

The sentiment is from the Sprakle Bright set, I stamped it in brown to keep the vintage theme and then added a oxide blended border to the card.

All of the products used in my blog post are avaiable in the Paperbabe Stamps Store

STAMPlorations Sticker Monday - November Part 2

Welcome to my second Sticker Monday post for November, Today I have another 3 projects to share with you showcasing ways in which you can use these amazing Clear Stickers rom STAMPlorations.

For my first project I'm showing you that you can stamp and die cut the stickers. To get the best results I added my chosen sticker to a piece of white card and placed it in to my stamping platform. I then stamped the Candle using Stazon ink, I found the best way to get a crisp image was to stamp several times and build up coverage, i just love how using a stamping platform allows me to stamp in the exact same place time and time again.

For the background of my card I used the Bubbles stencil and added color with a blending brush. I also added a sentiment in the form of a clear sticker and the added one of the Bits of washi stickers.

Products used for this card; Kathryns-Big-Wishes,  Kathryns-Big-Wishes-Coordinating-DiesHappy-Happy-Clear-StickersArtsy-Geometric-Backgrounds-Clear-StickersBits-of-Washi-1-Clear-Stickers and Bubbles-ARTplorations-Stencil

As I've been making lots of projects using the Clear Stickers I've kept a little scrap bowl and decided it was time to use some of them up. I chose to use colours that worked well together to make the tag feel more cohesive.

Where each piece of sticker meets I added a thin piece of lilac ribbon, I like how it ties everything together. I added the sentiment sticker on foam pads and embellished with a few sequins.

Products used for my Tag; Botanical-Backgrounds-Clear-StickersArtsy-Geometric-Backgrounds-Clear-Stickers and Free-Spirit-Clear-Stickers

As you probably know by now, the Shine Bright stickers are my go to for adding a sentiment to my cards. For this project I added them onto white card, trimmed them down and coloured the edges. I placed them on foam pads over the top of some of the Bits of Washi stickers.

I think the sentiments work perfectly with the Pensive face stencil, a few sequins in her hair finished the card off perfectly.

Products used for the card; Shine-Bright-Clear-StickersBits-of-Washi-1-Clear-Stickers and Faces-Pensive-ARTplorations-Stencil
