congrats...

several weeks ago.....or months ago.....i challenged myself to make a handful of cards using just one sticker sheet from SRM Stickers (Sticker Sentiments - Congratulations, shown below) along with only products that were on my studio table, within immediate reach.

here's what i ended up with.....
this one is new Cosmo Cricket patterned paper from their Social Club collection, woodgrain paper (unknown source), along with chipboard stickers from the same Cosmo Cricket collection, matched with some pleated ribbon from May Arts, and the 'Scalloped Sentiment Fiskars border punch. super simple.

this one is a mix of Cosmo Cricket Social Club and Circa 1934. super simple with lots of layers to make it look more sophisticated.

a super simple way---and one of my favorites---to add depth to your solid backgrounds is to punch circles from the same color cardstock, then attach them randomly to the background cardstock. it creates a lovely dimension and depth to an otherwise boring piece of solid cardstock. for this one i used my Round N Round Medium Fiskars Squeeze Punch.

this one is a mix of Little Yellow Bicycle, Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon patterned paper, May Arts ribbons, Little Yellow Bicycle stick pins, Jillibean Soup journaling spot, Fiskars Leaves Border Punch and Cloud Punches, and old, old chipboard that i can't even remember where it came from. and of course SRM stickers.

this one is some Cosmo Cricket, Little Yellow Bicycle & KI Memories patterned paper, May Arts ribbons, that same old, old chipboard (anyone know where that's from), and a few brads. super simple.


and this one looks so much better in real life. what is it about pinks and purples not photographing well? anywho. pink dotted strip was cut from and old heidi swapp file folder, mixed with some bazzill dotted swiss cardstock, Scalloped Sentiment Fiskars border punch again, felt flowers from American Crafts, and stitched button flower from Sassafras Lass. all old, old, old products.

like i mentioned, all sentiment stickers on these cards came from this sticker sheet. and i still have enough to make at least a dozen more cards. loooooooove these sticker sheets from SRM. love them.

  2. So cute! I'm pretty sure that woodgrain is from Pink Paislee, maybe a couple of years old? That elephant card is my favorite!

  3. What a fabulous idea to challenge yourself like this, and you certainly did it well! I adore the colour combos you've put together and all the cute elements. I'm not sure about who the chipboard is by, but Tessa is right - the woodgrain paper is an old Pink Paislee one from their ?Enchanting collection maybe? It's at least 2 years ago, maybe 3! But hey... the reason I know is because I've still got it in my collection too!!
