I'm so excited to have the opportunity to participate at Sticker Monday at STAMPlorations. I have three cards that I've made using the amazing Clear Stickers by STAMPlorations. There are so many to choose from, from sentiments to washi tape to colored backgrounds. I will say one thing. They are incredibly sticky. Once it starts to adhere, you're not going to be able to move it. Trust me, I've tried. What I find works for me, is to cut the sticker out, remove a bit of the backing, line the sticker up and then remove the backing. Hopefully, the sticker adheres where you want it to!

Here's card #1

For this card, I die cut a white A2 panel with STAMPlorations CUTplorations Happy word die. I added the word thoughts using STAMPlorations CRAFTplorations Shine Bright sticker. The sticker actually says "happy thoughts". I just cut the word "thoughts" out for this card. I guess I have a spare "happy" sticker for another day! On a white A2 side folding card base, I adhered several strips of washi tape stickers using STAMPlorations CRAFTplorations Bits of Washi #2. I placed the washi tape stickers so that they would be visible through the die cut sentiment. I also made sure to adhere all the little bits from inside the letters, using the die cut "happy" as a guide. I adhered the front panel to the card base and voilĂ , the card is complete.

Onto card #2

For this card, I started with a natural A2 card base. I adhered some of STAMPlorations CRAFTplorations Bits of Washi #2 clear stickers, arranged somewhat vertically in the bottom right quadrant of the card panel. For the sentiment, I had a scrap of cardstock where I had used a gelli plate and tumbled glass and salty ocean distress inks. I die cut the scrap using STAMPlorations CUTplorations Kudos word die. I also cut 3 more "kudos" with black cardstock which I used to stack to give the sentiment some dimension. I used a fine black marker to hand-draw the frame.

Finally, card #3

I've been experimenting with my gelli plate. For this background, I used twisted citron, peacock feathers, ripe persimmon, picked raspberry distress inks as well as STAMPlorations ARTplorations Art Flowers 2 stencil. When I was happy with the background, I used STAMPlorations ARTplorations Circles Flexi Template to create a mask and inked up the center of the circle with peacock feathers distress ink. When dry, I adhered the sentiment sticker from STAMPlorations CRAFTplorations Inspirational #4 clear sticker set. I trimmed the panel slightly so I could mat with a teal cardstock.
