{Sticker Monday} Stencils, Rainbows, Clear Stickers - Oh My!


Happy Monday, STAMPlorations friends! It's time for the first Sticker Monday post this month and we have STAMPgirl 
Sue Nagata sharing three cards 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.


Happy Monday Crafty Friends! It's Sue N here and I have three cards to share with you. You'll see that I embraced stencils, rainbows and clear stickers for all three.

Card #1

For this card, I used Ethnic Organic One stencil and distress inks (salty ocean, seedless preserves, festive berries, carved pumpkin, mustard seed, mowed lawn), applied with an ink blending tool. I adhered the clear sticker from the Inspirational #1 Clear Stickers pack onto a 1.5" x 4.25" strip of vellum and then adhered the vellum to the card. Here's a close-up of the sentiment sticker. I like that the vellum doesn't cover up all the pretty rainbow colors.


Card #2

This card was made with the Bloomdalascopic #2 stencil and the same rainbow distress inks as card 1 (salty ocean, seedless preserves, festive berries, carved pumpkin, mustard seed, mowed lawn) applied with an ink blending tool. I didn't want to take away from the beautiful stenciled image, so I added a simple sentiment using a sticker from the New Day Clear Stickers pack. Here's a close-up.


Card #3

For this card, I used the Broken Glass stencil and again the same distress inks (salty ocean, seedless preserves, festive berries, carved pumpkin, mustard seed, mowed lawn). I had the distress inks out, I might have well put them to good use, right? Instead of blending one color into the next, I tore some printer paper and used the torn edge like a stencil. This resulted in irregular edges between the colors. This is how it turned out.

I decided to rotate it to make a landscape card. I added the bold sentiment with a sticker from the Birthday Word Art Clear Stickers pack. I also added some birthday symbols using the Party Mates stamp set. I stamped the images onto white cardstock with black ink and fussy cut the images. 

It's been a privilege to have been here at Sticker Monday over the past three months. I love working with the Clear Stickers and I encourage you to give them a try.

If you're looking for more detailed descriptions of how I made these cards, please check out my foleysfriend blog.
