Hi Crafty Friends! I'm here with a post for STAMPlorations ~ Sticker Monday. Have you tried the Clear Stickers offered by STAMPlorations? I think they are so useful, especially if you're in a rush and there is such a variety of them offered. They are a nice option to finding a stamp, selecting the ink and grabbing my stamping positioner to stamp. One word of caution though - they are really sticky and not forgiving. I find that cutting the clear sticker from the sheet, with the release paper still adhered, positioning it in place and carefully peeling just a corner of the release paper to adhered it in place seems to work for me.
I have three cards for you, all using stencils. I was also in a bit of a rainbow mood when creating them. Here's the first one.
For this card, I used STAMPlorations ARTplorations Ethnic Organic One stencil and distress inks (salty ocean, seedless preserves, festive berries, carved pumpkin, mustard seed, mowed lawn) applied with an ink blending tool, in rainbow order. For the sentiment, I used a stcker from the STAMPlorations CRAFTplorations Inspirational #1 clear sticker pack. I adhered it to a strip of vellum which I then adhered to the card. If I'm being truthful, I was worried that I might not be able to adhere the clear sticker straight so I thought that by using vellum, I was "safer". I like that you can still see the vibrant colors from behind the vellum. Here's a close-up.
Continuing with the rainbow colors, here is card #2
For this card, I used STAMPlorations ARTplorations Bloomdalascopic #2 stencil with distress inks (salty ocean, seedless preserves, festive berries, carved pumpkin, mustard seed, mowed lawn), applied with an ink blending tool. I kept the sentiment simple and used a clear sticker from STAMPlorations CRAFTplorations New Day clear sticker pack. I used the cut the sticker out with the release paper, positioned it, removed a corner of the release paper and carefully adhered it in place, technique. I thought the sentiment, "be a rainbow" was perfect for my card. It's not quite a one-layer card but it's pretty close, right? Here's a close-up of the sticker.
Here's my last card
For this card, I started with STAMPlorations ARTplorations Broken Glass stencil and added distress inks (mustard seed, carved pumpkin, festive berries, seedless preserves, salty ocean, mowed lawn) with an ink blending tool. For this card, there was a bit of a twist. I ripped some printer paper and used the uneven edges as a stencil for adding the ink. Each color used a different ripped edge. Here's what that looked like.
I then added a sticker from the STAMPlorations CRAFTplorations Birthday Word Art sticker pack. I also added some stamped images from STAMPlorations Party Mates stamp set, stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto some scraps of white cardstock and fussy cut to complete the card.
