Here's Sue with her cards:

Hello, crafty friends. It's Sue N and I'm back with a Sticker Monday post. When you're in need of a quick card, consider working with STAMPlorations clear stickers. We have quite a large selection of stickers varying from simple sentiments, to large sentiments, to bits of washi tape to colored patches. 

I have three cards for you today. Let's get started with my first card.


I started by die cutting the "happy" on a white A2 panel with the Happy Word Die. On a side folding white A2 card base, I adhered some Bits of Washi #2 clear stickers on an angle, arranged so they would be visible through the die cut sentiment. Here's a close-up


I also adhered all the "little bits" from inside the letters to the clear stickers. I used the positive of the die cut to help with placement. To complete the card, I used part of a clear sticker from Shine Bright. The sticker actually says "happy thoughts". I cut the sentiment down to only use the "thoughts" part.

Here's my second card:


I started this card with an A2 natural cards panel. I adhered some of the Bits of Washi #2 stickers somewhat vertically, overlapping some in the bottom right quadrant of the card. For the sentiment, I used a scrap of cardstock from when I was  getting used to my Gelli plate. I used tumbled glass and salty ocean distress inks. I die cut the scrap with the Kudos Word Die. To give the sentiment some dimension, I cut three more using black cardstock. I stacked the black die cuts, adhering them, below the blue. Here's a close-up.


To add a bit of whimsy, I hand drew a frame around the circumference of the card panel.


Now for my third and last card today.


I have been experimenting with a Gelli plate. I created this background with distress inks - twisted citron, peacock feathers, ripe persimmon, picked raspberry and Art Flowers 2 stencil. To add the sentiment, I wanted a spot that would showcase the sentiment. I used the Circles Flexi-template as a mask so I could add peacock feathers distress ink in the shape of a circle. When dry, I adhered one of the sentiment in the Inspirational #4 clear sticker pack. Here's a close-up.


Thanks for stopping by. If you'd like more details on how I created these cards, please visit me at my foleysfriend blog. Looking forward to seeing you again next month.
