{Sticker Monday} Sue's CAS Birthday Cards

Happy Monday, STAMPlorations friends! It's time for this month's Sticker Monday and we have the talented Sue Symens sharing her projects featuring our clear stickers. Make sure you comment on this post for a chance at a $15 prize code. Every month, we draw 7 winners, with the winners randomly drawn from all posts published during the month. The more posts you comment on, the more chances you have.

Today, Sue is sharing several clean and simple birthday cards where she used clear stickers creatively.


Hello! I am excited to be with you again to share some fun ideas with STAMPlorations' clear stickers. Today my main focus is birthday cards with the Happy, Happy sticker set.

Using Kathryn's Big Wish stamp set, I stamped and no-line colored the balloons on a white panel and then positioned my sticker and die cut the panel. Here is a little tip: if your sticker does not cover your entire die cut use clear packing tape to finish covering the area. I then tied the bakers twine over the seam where the sticker and packing tape meet.

My next card uses a technique where you coat the back of the sticker with clear glitter and apply it over a brightly colored panel. Using the Gift Builder 1 die to cut a window on my front panel, framing the greeting from the Happy, Happy sticker set. 

With my final card today I wanted to see how alcohol markers would work with the stickers. Good news, they worked great!

The crazy part is I wanted to make a plaid so the sticker has vertical stripes drawn on the front with the markers. Then the sticker was placed on card stock that has horizontal stripes creating a fun plaid.

I used the Circles All Over Texture plate to give my base card a little something.

I hope you enjoyed these ideas and can get a jump on your 2021 birthday cards.
