Cute Card Thursday - #265 Cakewalk
CARDZ TV - #28 Cute as a Button



Do you think a sticker has to stay in the way it was made? Or do you like to alter them? I buy sticker sheets for usually about ½ of them, and then have leftovers that use to drive me crazy because I felt I wasn't getting my moneys worth...now I love the left over stickers because I can play with them, change them up, alter them and it's fun!
 
Tip 'o the Day!
 Here, I had used half of this sweet little glittered flower border and had a portion left over so I used my hole punch to remove those flowers and put them on the cupcake as sprinkles. And if you look at the tag itself, those cute little bees were all cute out from the sticker sheet. ( I do recommend placing the stickers on a piece of paper before cutting, makes it very easy then. ) That big Happy Birthday sticker is another one I changed up, it was too big for the tag so I removed an element and then ran a line of stickles around it to hide where it was cut off.
So, alter..or leave in your scrap pile in case you might need it one day...which way do you roll?

Sketch as is on left, and flipped on right

 
As you can tell I chose to flip the sketch over;
The umbrella was cut out of chipboard and then the handle was cut off so I could lift the canopy up for some dimension using Liquid Scrap Dots. Added some faux stitching to the canopy.

Great tip Sandee. I always think a couple stickers or whatever are cute in the pack and wonder what the heck I'll do with the rest.
