{New Product} Introducing STAMPlorations Clear Stickers!

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! I'm excited to announce a new addition to the STAMPlorations product line: CLEAR STICKERS

If you often find yourself needing to mass produce cards or tags, our clear stickers are going to be your best friend. They play well with our other product lines and because they're clear, the stickers will blend with whatever background you apply them on.

We have 13 19 20 new clear sticker packs to kick off this new product line -- 9 of them are and they're all available now in the store at 10% off, while 4 will be available starting Friday...when the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop starts because, well, they're coffee-themed stickers! ;-)

STAMPlorations Clear Stickers are laser printed on 100% transparent and high-gloss polyester material with a permanent adhesive. Our stickers also have a waterproof top coat, making them smear- and smudge-free!

The STAMPgirls will be sharing projects featuring our clear stickers over the next few weeks but here are some cards that STAMPgirl Terri made featuring Happy Happy and Shine Bright.

{Spotlight Project} Bloomdala Bliss And Ethnic India With Deepti

Hello friends! Deepti here and welcome to a spotlight feature. Today, I am playing with the newest stamp club set "Bloomdala Bliss" When I saw this stamp first thing that occurred to me was my ethnic Indian sarees. So, I went with that same idea and tried to capture the bright colors and gold in the sarees. I even have sarees in these two shades :) Let me show you...

I have shown a step by step photo tutorial to showcase the process of making this ...

Step 1 - So for this one I took a water color panel and heat embossed the mandala stamp all over to build my background. I embossed one or two mandalas at a time.

Step 2 - I then die cut this panel with edge die to make two panels. Initially, I was planning to use white but then I changed card base to kraft.

Step 3 - I then water colored each panel. I began with the center of the mandala and went outward in lighter tones.

Step 4 - I then embellished each panel with gem stone. I put sequins in purple panel and then changed it to gem stone too.

To finish I heat embossed the sentiments and also adhered a string of gemstones along the cut edges of water colored panels.

Here is a closeup into each card...

I have used  "Bloomdala Bliss"  , Stitched Snow Hills Dies

That finishes my spotlight feature :) I hope you enjoyed it and will give this a try.
Happy paper crafting!
