Good morning! Welcome to the OWH Sticker Blog Skip!
(If you would like to start at the beginning of the skip, please go to the OWH Stars and Stamps Blog.)
Robin and I make a lot of cards for OWH using stickers, so we thought it would fun to showcase a few of them for everyone to see! In general, we prefer to use Paperhouse stickers, as they are amazingly realistic. Although they can be hard to find, they are worth looking for on your next trip to Michaels or A.C. Moore. We love the dog and cat stickers, as well as the butterflies and shells. In the summer, Robin also makes cards with the Paperhouse popsicles!
First is a fun card that Robin made! I love the fun patterned paper behind the dog stickers on this card. Each sticker is placed on a white square of cardstock. This was then placed on a pink piece of paper, which was placed on a darker pink strip. The paper used to back the stickers is embossed with tiny polka dots. Finally, a sentiment from Amuse Stamps finishes the card.
This next card is similar although the materials used are slightly different. The stickers are once again placed on a white square of cardstock. This was then placed on a square of brown cardstock, which was created using the Marvy punches. The same sentiment was used, although instead of backing it on patterned paper, Robin placed a small strip of Washi Tape across the bottom of the card. The tape not only looks great but is also very easy to move or reposition if necessary.
This card was created in a similar manner to the one above. I really like the butterfly stickers, especially for the spring. Once again, a piece of Washi Tape was placed on the bottom of the card.
In the summer, Robin generally makes cards using these popsicle stickers. These paperhouse stickers are so realistic! They really look like those summer treats we all enjoyed as kids. For this card, and the one below, she placed the stickers on a white square of paper and placed this on a colored piece of cardstock. She placed the squares on an angle to create the look of diamonds. Finally, a matching piece of Washi Tape on the bottom finishes off the card.
While I have always loved dogs, we got a cat when I was younger and we absolutely love her. Therefore, when we found cat stickers from Paperhouse, I immediately fell in love with them. The cats are so cute! I picked this card not only because of the stickers but also because of the awesome background paper used to complement the cats. The colors also go really well with the feline theme of the card. Finally, a thinking of you stamp was used to finish the card.
Finally, I though I would post two slightly different cards from those above. While Robin generally uses animal stickers from Paperhouse, we also really love their flowers. The flowers are larger than the above cats and dogs and once again look quite realistic. They have a wide variety of flowers at the craft store, but these are some of our favorites. The frames are punched with the Martha Stewart 'punch around the corner' double loop set. The paper behind the flowers is metallic paper from AC Crafts. I absolutely love this paper!
I hope this post showed everyone a few different ways to use stickers. If you haven't tried Paperhouse stickers before, I would encourage you to check them out the next time you are at your local craft store. You can also order them online at various stores.
Thanks so much for visiting!
