STAMPlorations Belated 6th Birthday ...

This week we are celebrating (belatedly) STAMPlorations 6th Birthday with a Linky Party with prizes along the way.

No photo description available.

Today's celebration features the clear stickers that we introduced to the product range earlier this year - this is a versatile and useful new product which I simply love.  There is a complete selection available - including sentiments and words as well as artsy background stickers.  I have used a combination of both in my projects - join in with the party and check out how the other designers have used the stickers.

I love putting sentiments on a vellum overlay but often struggle to stamp the words without smudging them - as you will see from my card by using the clear stickers I get a beautifu sentiment onto vellum and not a smudge in sight!!

The background was created using alcohol inks and foil.  The sticker was placed onto a piece of vellum before being adhered to the background and then added to the card base.

I used:
STAMPlorations Clear Stickers
                             Crazy Double Running Stitch Nesting Rectangles

My second project is quite different:

I wanted to show how the stickers can also be used to add interest to the background of a project - the top right words are just part of one of the stickers and the black edge on the left corner is actually part of the sticker that is left on the backing once you've the main sticker.

I used:
STAMPlorations  Clear Stickers
                               Manila Tags Nesting Dies

I hope that I've inspired you to pop along to the STAMPlorations blog and check out the other projects - I just know that you will not be disappointed.

  8. You really used the whole sticker on your second project. Even the left over part. I do like the use of the sticker on Vellum because I like that look too and it's hard not to smudge it. Wonderful ideas.
