Using stickers to add pattern and color.

Looking for an idea on how to use banner stickers? Adding pattern and color to your work is so easy with small shapes like these triangle banner stickers.
I have a couple of cards over at the LilyBee blog today made with LilyBee's Buttercup line, which has such fun colors - yellows, grays, and teals. Gray is so hot right now - in fact, I'm loving it so much that I painted the spare bath with a light shade of gray the other day!

The sentiment used here is Simply You by Papertrey Ink. I used LilyBee's Victoria Park stamps with Papertrey Ink's Aqua Mist ink to create a little "frame" around the sentiment with the small floral. Stop over to see two cards using this quick and simple technique.

Pretty card. I love what you did with the banner stickers. Why didn't I think of doing this? I guess that is why you are a paid designer and I get my ideas from you. :)

What a great way to use those little banner stickers, Danielle! I have a bunch of them from Lily Bee and have made a few banners, but haven't thought of using them in a different way, until I saw your card! Thanks for the inspiration!

I know a couple of people that I would really like to make that card for. I think I will go on out to my hobby room from http://roomstogrowusa.web12.hubspot.com/hobbyrooom/ and make a couple up. Thanks for the great idea.

I really like the way you used the banner stickers. I have a ton of them and could never think of a way to really incorporate them. When I get out to my studio from http://roomstogrowusa.web12.hubspot.com/hobbyrooom/, I am going to play with them now that I have some inspiration!
