Stick 'em on!


I was browsing through some SCS forums and came across a thread about stickers... how there are so many of them in the craft stores but we rarely see them on cards. I think Sharon (notimetostamp) had a challenge on her blog this week to make a card with stickers too. I figured I should dig out some of the stickers I've been hoarding for ages and put them to use.



This card was made with the coordinating "wanted" paper from SU. I cuttlebugged the bottom sage layer and the white diamond, then added the large star sticker. The circle and small star are also stickers, as well as the dotted border. I followed the sketch challenge from yesterday for this card, but it actually looks like the dp is one layer on this card.



I now challenge YOU to make a card using stickers. Post it on your blog or SCS gallery and post a link back here - I wanna see what everyone comes up with!! Don't forget that I'm still adding to my Christmas card list with every post - so leave me a comment... even if it's only a "Hi Michelle"! I'm going to choose names on Monday, so you still have a few days to leave comments on all these posts!



Thanks for reading!

I never would have guessed those were stickers on your card. I'm inspired now. I've got tons of stickers around here collecting dust.

Love the card--it looks like a quilt! I agree, I wouldn't have known those were stickers if you hadn't said so.

Stickers? Wow and they look great. I have so very many stickers I need to take you up on the challenge ... although I don't have a blog to post them on so you'll just have to trust me that I'm going to make some cards with stickers. Oh and some tags too - I need some tags for all this package wrapping that will soon be started at my house. The card is great with calm wintery colors. As always, nice work!

Wow, never would have guessed stickers, this card is awesome, I have so many stickers, keep buying them and don't use them, you have inspired me. Just hope I have the "right" ones or I will have to go out and buy more. LOL

I like the colors you used on this card. I've had my eye on the Wanted collection since it first came out, but have yet to convince myself to get it. Always a joy to read your blog!

Stickers never looked so good! Thanks for sharing. I've been blog stalking for awhile now:) I'll try to do better about leaving comments!

Great card, Michelle. Thanks for the reminder about using our stickers. I, too, have a bunch that I need to put to use. Have a terrific day.

Michelle how and where do you take the photos of your cards. They look so professional and are lit so perfectly. I love this card too!

Diane Noble said...

How fabulous! These are some of my favorite DPs. But the way you put everything together makes it over the top! Love the cuttlebug effect and all the layering. I'm learning from you to use more stuff!!! Love your style!

I have a drawer full of stickers that I just 'had' to have when I started papercrafting.....and then I found SCS, and your gallery, and things have never been the same! (Boy, do I cringe when I think back to some of my first cards--ugh!) You always come up with something phenomenal no matter what you're working with...and this card is no exception! It's gorgeous! Hmmmm, now, what can I come up with, for your sticker challenge??? Have a great day! Pam (4Hounds)

This is an awesome masculine card--the colors are perfect! But, you already knew that, so...
Love it, love it, love it!!!!!!
Thanks for such wonderful examples to follow!

GREAT card! It looks cuddly. I had no clue they were stickers. Love the cuttlebugged background, too. No blog, but you always get me thinking - THANKS!

I seem to avoid the sticker aisle anymore, so your post has inspired me to dig some of my old ones out. I can't even tell that those are stickers!! thanks for the reminders to use them again. I seem to only use vintage ones on some of my altered projects, and then only if the sticker is a realistic looking one.

Every once in a while I use a sticker of some sort on a card. These sure don't look like stickers, though--very cool! Great card!

The color combos and texture on this card is really great. Nice job.
