I love today's steal. You know, I feel like I say that just about every day, but I do! I'm like a kid in a candy shop whenever Melodee brings me new product to shoot for the page, and today's steal, the KI Memories, Gel Candy Epoxy Stickers is of no exception!
They truly take me back to my childhood, to a time when I was pretty in love with collecting stickers. Smurf stickers, Holly Hobbie, Scratch and Sniff, and of course, I always loved when I was able to add an epoxy sticker to my collection. (Yes...they were few and far between wayyyyyyyyyyyy back then!)
For this weeks Monday Card Madness, I decided to not to have a set sketch but more of a challenge. Your challenge is to use stickers. (Although by all means, feel free to use my cards to copy!)
I had so much fun putting to use some of the stickers in the Gel Candy collections as well as the Love Elsie collections. I love the fresh colors as well as the slight demension that an epoxy sticker gives to a project.
The first two cards that I made each have a sticker from the Love Elsie collections. I've always loved Elsie Flannagans whimsical, doodling style.
On the second card I wanted to keep the soft feel of the design of the cards and used my corner rounder on the sticker to take away the sharp edges.
I was honestly a little stumped as to which Gel Candy stickers to use for my other cards, because there are SO many to choose from. KI Memories named their product well, as it truly is like being in a candy shop trying to decide what to use. :)
I loved the pink stickers, so I used an assortment of them to create the design of this card.
I also loved the round circle from all of the sets and started using a bunch of them, but settled on one from the pink set for this card. I added some rubons on top and was able to create a unique sentiment.
So how have you done on sending out joy? I hope that we are starting to see cards surfacing all over the continent, to brighten someones day!
