Love Buggin' (a mini tutorial)

Happy Saturday friends! I was so looking forward to a lazy "sleep in" kind of Saturday the kind that is so rare and precious in my life as I work weekends....but what does my {traitor} brain do? It wakes me at 6:13 AM not a slow yawny groggy awake.... nope the lightening bolt to heart, all systems go kind of awake. I should punish it by depriving it of caffeine but dang it,it will hurt me more that it will hurt her. Us, it...oh you know what I mean.

I tiptoed to the craftroom and started playing with stickers, you know those big adorable stickers that come in the crafting kits? I almost never use them, but I always want to.....
I thought it would be fun to show you how to make a whole card super quick and ridiculously easy with them and to think beyond the obvious too! Let me show you what I did!

I started with a sheet of fun stickers from an older Echo park kit called Country drive, its full of cute, and bright papers, stickers, and "project life" style cuts. I chose to use the yellow bug and cut out the windshield with a craft knife.

Now that its open , I cut a standard 4.25"X5.5" card base of white cardstock and placed my car at the lower section of the card but not adhering it fro the hood up, I placed two lady bugs one in the driver and one slightly lower in the passenger side to mimic the idea of one bug being a little taller :) { I'm short...really short} so that one is me!

Googly eyes....well because they just make the world a better place all on their own. You can't deny this fact, they are just silly and creepy, and fun!

See what I mean? This would not be the same without googly eyes!

Now just add more stickers, and embellish if you feel like it, or leave it and tada you're done! Seriously I may have to make one sticker creation a week just because this was so much fun! {not because I have years worth of sticker sheets that I can't part with " because they are useful" but still don't ever use} that's not it at all! *wink*

 You know me well enough to know that I can't ever stop, so I decorated the inside of the card, and added stitching, glitter and staples! I mean it was still the fastest card I've ever made in the history of .......ever!

What do you think? Are you going to dust off those sticker sheets?
I would love to start a new movement of crafties made with all those adorable forgotten stickers! Its your turn~ GO!!!!
XOXO Shantaie
