Here is the card I made with the topper I demonstrated in my last post:The sticker sheet included corner stickers but I used them as decoration either side of the ribbon instead..
Here are the others I made the same day:I really like this next one. The turquoise colour together with the intricate pattern gives it a sort of Morrocan style:
If you do use these sticker sheets -not just for this type of pattern, but any "outline sticker" sheet- don't immediately throw them away!
You can get something called a "transfer sheet" sometimes called a "transfer foil" and use this to pick up what's left. This means you get to use the negative from the pattern as well. Here are some photo's of me doing this, which might make it clearer-
Here you can see circles of dots, left behind after I've used the medallion sticker. In this photo I've placed the"transfer sheet" on top of one of the circles. The transfer sheet is sticky on one side and I'm rubbing it over with a lolly stick to get the pattern of dots to stick to it.Next, carefully and very slowly lift the transfer sheet, pulling the dots away with it. If some are left behind, replace the sheet and rub some more until everything is picked up on the sheet:Place onto your card or paper:Rub evenly over the back:Pull away gently, leaving the pattern behind:The transfer sheet can be reused a few times if you store it back on its backing sheet...
The transferred pattern looks like embossing:
Here I've transferred the largest pattern. This one took about 5 minutes rubbing to pick it up completely on the sheet. Lots of patience needed!!! -But it's worth it really, if you think that this is using something that would normally be discarded...
-I hope this is useful!
Now I have to go out, quick, before it rains. The sky keeps going grey and threatening to get me. I think it's waiting for me. Hey ho!
