Good morning everyone! Every Tuesday Laura over at Scrapnextras has a challenge to use something from stuff she's hoarding or stuff she's bought and hasn't used much. This week I challenged her to use some of those clear bubble stickers because I have several packages of those and just don't use them very often. Well, she accepted my challenge and made two of the prettiest cards!
To get the details of the cards she made, go visit her blog, and if you haven't been to her blog before you should pull up a chair and look through past posts and just soak it all in. She is one talented lady!
Anyway, as challenger I also have to step up to the plate and create something using the bubble stickers too! I have to say it's really hard to put my cards up right after showing you her beautiful creations! First up is this

I used the Egg Head image from Squigglefly and colored it with copic markers. I added some crystal lacquer to his eyes and beak and of course flocked his body. I stamped the little flower from Stampin Up's Simply Said set four times and colored each one a different color to go with the colors of the dots in the designer paper. I placed a bubble sticker over each flower and glued them to the side of the card.
The sentiment was printed out on the computer in green and the font is called segoe Print. I added some sparkly blue rick rack along the side to go with the blue of the egg shell.
I thought this poor little chick looked so surprised to see his shell cracked apart!
Now the next card I made I really hate. I hate it so much I will probably throw it away, but I'm showing it to you anyway because I think some people can take my idea and do a better job with it.
I wantedto use a small square dome sticker I had to highlight a portion of an image kind of like the spotlight technique, only the dome sticker would spotlight the spotlight. So I chose this collage image from Stampin Up's Garden Collage set and only colored the portion the sticker would cover.
and a close up of the spotlighted part
Now I am the first to say that I cannot do collage type cards, so I don't know why I chose this image to try. I like the part with the sticker, but I don't like any of the rest of it. I don't know what to do with it, and I think the paper I used behind the image panel is all wrong.
Anyway, if you have something in your stash that you haven't used yet, why don't you challenge Laura? Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
