STAMPlorations Sticker Monday - May 25th 2020

Hello friends! I am back with the special "Sticker Monday" posts. I will be sharing various styles of cards and also various ways you can use the Clear Stickers on your cards :) I am so loving the stickers. Every month, we'll draw one lucky crafter to win a $15 gift code -- randomly drawn from all comments left on the Sticker Monday posts at the STAMP blog for the month, as well as from my blog.

Today I am sharing how unique backgrounds can make these gorgeous stickers shine. I made three cards with same but unique designs. I have featured "Love is - Clear Stickers" 

Let me show you the cards I made... For these cards, I wanted to make a focal piece with similar colors but a unique designs :) I worked with a small focal die cut panel and used pure and  simple stenciling on one, stamping on another and ink blending with ghosting on the third :)
Here is my first card...

Stenciling can look so amazing when the stencil is fantastic :) what do you think?!!!
Here is my second card...

As you know my obsession with Distress Oxide inks and they work great for solid stamping. I created a gradient with a combinations of inks using a butterfly stamp. 
Here is my third card...
As you can see, here I simply ink blended and then used a stencil, sprayed it with water and stamped on inked panel to achieve the subtle effect :) To add more interest I added dry embossed backgrounds for my focal panels.

I hope you like the cards I created and that I inspired you to try stickers on your projects.

I have created cards featuring the recently released Coffee Stamps...

Here are the cards I created... for my first card, I started out by inking a white card stock panel with Distress oxide inks.
Once I did inking I did ghost stamping using a stencil. I added some pearl white splatter. For my focal image I heat embossed the cup and water colored it. Once dried I fuzzy cut the image and adhered it with some dimension.
To finish I stamped the sentiment. I have used Bloomin' Coffee and YouAll Blooms stencil along with Gansai Tambi Watercolors.

Here is another card I made featuring the second stamp set. Here too I inked the panel with few shades of Distress Oxide Inks. 
I then made the masks of the masks of the coffee cups and did tone on tone masking for my background. I added some splatter and also stamped some mixed media stamps Mixed Media Grunge along the edges of the panel. For my focal image I used the same stamp and heat embossed it on black card stock.
I fuzzy cut the image and adhered it with some dimension. To finish I stamped the sentiment.

STAMPlorations Spotlight - Father's Day Cards

Hello friends! I am back with another spotlight project over at the STAMPlorations blog. I hope I will be able to inspire you. Today I am making Cards with Father's day on my mind. I had that moment when a cool idea clicked my head, a fun way to create sun burst without using a stencil. I am not sure if anyone has used this before, 'coz so far I haven't come across anyone sharing it. Nonetheless, I am kinda happy with me :) So I created a couple of cards, let me show you...




I have used  Sweet and Sassy Dad

Let me show you the card I made... I am featuring one of the new square stencils and new clear sticker Doodled Tulips Stencil and  Inspirational #1 Clear Sticker respectively.
I simply inked the card stock panel through the stencil using a combination of Distress Oxide inks. The stencil is so pretty in itself you don't have to do much! But this time I got a little creative, I decided to fuzzy cut the upper part of the stenciled panel. I layered this on white panel where I added some scored lines :) To finish I added the sticker sentiment.
Here is a closeup of my card...
