Hello and Happy Saturday!!! How´s your weekend getting along? I hope with lots of fun crafty stuff :). Today, like promised on Thursday, I´ll be sharing my second set of STAMPlorations Clear Sticker projects. The recently launched a new product like at their store: Clear Stickers! And there are reveals of projects created with the new product line featured on their blog, so keep that space in your mind for even more inspiration!!!
My clear sticker projects today feature a set called “Tis the Season” today. So even though it´s summer here now, we have officially started with our Christmas projects already for the upcoming season :). I think I have never been this early with Christmas cards :). So let´s start: For this card I used the “Leaves of Thanks” clear stamp set to create the leaf wreath. I used the masking stamping technique to create the “wreath” and then colored some areas with two tones of Distress Ink and a water tank brush. Next I fussy cut the image.
That took me a while, so I kept everything else very simple by just inking the card background blue and then die cutting a rectangle piece and inking that in a green tone. Next I just adhered the wreat on place, attached a clear sticker to the rectangle piece and adhered that one on place using 3D foam. For finishing touches I added some Nuvo Drops.
I really like this card very much! The theme is Christmas and the colors are quite fresh actually. Might have something to do with the fact that I was creating in May. Have you ever noticed that there are certain colors we tend to go to during certain seasons? I noticed when I took a look at my Insta feed. Spring and summer feature much more brighter colors on my feed than fall and winter. Thus, these are happy, fresh toned Xmas cards today.
For the second card I first inked a piece of white cardstock with light blue Distress Ink tone, then placed a stencil (from my stencil line) on top and added a green toned tree pattern to the background.
Next I took a rectangle die cut die and die cut a piece from the middle. After that I adhered a piece of acetate with a red sticky tape onto the stenciled piece and then created a shaker card with 3D foam pieces. Inside the shaker I then hid the clear sticker sentiment and added some Nuvo Confetti to go with it. The sentiment works so well with the confetti here :). A perfect match!
For decoration I took the Leaves of Thanks clear stamp set and stamped with green ink onto white cardstock. Then I colored the images with a lighter green toned ink and a water tank brush. After fussy cutting the leaves, I created a leaf and flower cluster to the right lower corner and added some glue splats around the shaker window edges. Before they dried up, I poured some loose glitter on top to add a frosty layer to the splats.
For my last card I again took the Leaves of Thanks clear stamp set and stamped a random leaf pattern onto my white card with green ink. I then took the rectangle piece (left over from the previous card) and adhered a sticker sentiment onto it.
Next I attached a red ribbon around the leaf pattern background, then adhered the piece onto the card base and finally adhered the die cut rectangle piece with 3D foam as a focal point to the card. I really like the Tis The Season clear stickers alot! Here you also get a set of 8 sheets featuring a set of 4 sentiments. So in total you get 32 stickers in a set and have a great starting point for your Christmas cards for the upcoming season!!
