Hello everyone! It’s Zinia here and today I’d like to share with you a really fun technique to get the most out of your stickers.
For today’s cards I’m going to exclusively use the new 30-page sticker book by Paige Evans. Stickers are some of the most versatile products in any collection and there are really endless techniques and ideas to use them in creative ways.
For these cards I’m going to grab most of the floral images in the sticker book and turn them into ephemera. To do so I’ll apply some baby powder to the adhesive side of the stickers with a regular paint brush. This way they will no longer stick on the project and I’ll be free to move them around and arrange them in any way I want.
One of my favorite ways to add a bit of extra dimension on my projects is to layer elements with hot glue. That makes the separation between the layers more obvious and visible. You can even add bigger blobs of glue to make the effect more intense.
For the first card I used the Oh My Heart flowers and layered them focusing on the center of the card. I also removed the adhesive of a few clipboard stickers to use them as a focal element.
I layered a few of them together and stapled them at the top. This way it will add some extra dimension in the middle and also create an interactive element on the card. I decorated each clipboard with a different sentiment so there are multiple messages for the recipient of the card.
For the second card I used the Turn the Page flowers and I went for a reversed design. I built my floral layers as a border around the card and left the middle empty for the sentiment.
The idea is once again the same. Remove the adhesive so you can handle the stickers freely and adhere them using hot glue for extra dimension between the layers.
For this design you should start a little bit further from the edges so you can move to the outer areas with your higher layers.
I really hope you got inspired to use up your sticker stash and especially this beautiful sticker book in fun and creative ways. Until next time, happy crafting!
