I am back on the blog with Sweet Stamp Shop to show you how easy it is to use your Sweet Stamp Shop stamps to accent your stickers, and if you are anything like me you probably have a TON of stickers just hanging out. My favorite ones to use are the nice big bold ones, usually dimensional too, you know, the kind that really make a statement! They lend themselves more easily to stamps as well. You can really dress them up and turn maybe a somewhat boring sticker into a masterpiece with just a little stamping. I generally let the sticker inspire me and then find the stamp(s) I want to use to really enhance it. I love how with stamping you don't just have to stamp an image onto a card and call it done, you can stamp and color your images in, you can cut them out, there are just so many possibilities.
Well here is what I did and to see more inspiration head on over HERE to see my blog where I show some other possibilities you could do :)
So, I first stamped a bunch of the roses on watercolor paper and colored them in with black and gray, and then fussy cut around all of them. (I wanted to go with a CAS approach to the card so the stamped images and sticker could really stand out.) Using a white background I adhered 2 roses down on either side using the sticker as a guide for the placement I wanted. Then once they were down I adhered the sticker onto the center of the card, then pop dotted two more roses in front of the bottom of the sticker. Then finished off with Dia De Los Muertos sentiment. Easy huh?!?! AND... I loved how much it came out that I made the companion (the wife :) ) You know behind every good man is his wife, (well) I think that is the saying lol. If not it should be.
And here they are together. I am so happy with the way they turned out and love them sitting next too each other. Not to mention how fun are holograms anyways?!?!
Here are some fun bonus cards using the Dia De Los Muertos, the Triangle Style, and the Fall Gratitude...
Here are the sets that were used on today"s cards:
So how are you loving the CAS? Do you find that you neglect your stickers? Leave me a comment below on how you like to accent your cards, do you find you have a go to...you know like enamel dots, sequins, paint splatters (p.s.-those are all my favorites lol)
