STAMPlorations Sticker Monday - May 11th 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.
Continuing my obsession with kraft card stock, today I am sharing cards I made using "New Day - Clear Stickers" for a trio of encouragement cards :)
Let me show you the cards I made... For these cards, I wanted to work with pink, blue and white color scheme on kraft card stock and use and outline image along with a solid stamp image. 

For all my cards, I followed the rules of visual imagery... creating a visual triangle, keeping things in odd numbers, going off the edge. For the sentiments, I used stickers. I simply decided for a combination of sentiments for each  card and adhered them on white card stock. I then cut them into sentiment strips to adhere them on my stamped backgrounds.

Here is my first card...

Here is my second card...

I recently grabbed quite a few Distress oxide inks and they work great for solid stamping. If you don't have these, you can always work with pigment ink. I you don't have both I would say using white card stock instead of kraft is a better choice for dye inks. I also added interest by using some mixed media stamps.

Here is my third card...

As you can see that I adhered the sentiment stickers in unique style. Having sentiment stickers makes it easier :) Also, you can see the washi tape like addition along the edges, that also a sticker Artsy Geometric Backgrounds - Clear Stickers :) even though it's a background sticker, I cut it out to suit to my design needs :)

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

Besides the stickers, I have used the following Trendy Birds 2Trendy ButterfliesMixed Media Grunge, Bloom Sketches
