Sticker Flowers

It is fun to play with no products but every once in a while I like to go back and use items that I bought many years ago for my cardmaking, those "Forgotten Treasures".  When going through my supplies I decided to go through my sticker drawer, yes I have a drawer of stickers and rubons, oh my. I came across this set I had bought at the $ store, I just think this is such a pretty sticker set, and yes I do have more from the sheet.  I added some new paper for the background and a sentiment and it was done.



The butterfly on the right has the same clear center as the one on the left, but my camera caught the reflection of the sticker on that one.  While the sentiment was still in the die I did a little shading with blue for the center.

Miss Elizabeth's -- Hydrangeas stickers
Craft Smith -- Sea glass paper
Spellbinders -- A2 matting basics A and Back to basics tags dies
Hero Arts -- It's your day sentiment stamp
Recollections -- Button Brads

Thanks so much for stopping by today and for taking the time to comment, I hope you enjoy a Beautiful weekend!

Beautiful card, Connie. That background paper goes so well with the stickers.
I've been sending a lot of my old stickers to my 2 year old nephew to play with but I don't think his mother appreciates it.

Oh, gosh, Connie, it's a gorgeous sticker set! I never see stickers like this around here. Love it on the wood grain paper. I'm clearing out my stamp room little by little and I've enjoyed some of my finds. You made such a lovely card with your hidden treasures!

Janice said...

What a great idea for a card, I'm sure so many of us have lots of stickers and peel-offs in our stash from ages ago!
Your card is just gorgeous Connie, so pretty and lovely colours.

Nicely done, Connie! I cannot resist little blue butterflies OR hydrangeas ~
How ever did you know? ;) We have Bank Holiday Weekend here which means Monday is a non working day for my hubby. Have a great week!
