Operation Write Home Bloghop



Welcome to SRM Stickers!  We are very excited to be participating in this Bloghop in celebration of Memorial Day and Operation Write Home.  Three of our design team members have joined in the fun so sit back, relax and enjoy!  And be sure to leave a comment for a chance to WIN this patriotic prize packet of SRM's Patriotic stickers



Now for some inspiration!  Here's a beautiful stamped and stickered card from Design Team member Shelly Kurth.  {{SIGH}} What a beauty!  Shelly followed this OWH sketch #110.


Shelly created a red, white and blue card that's all about love!  Love that big, bold stamped flower!  Love the SRM Fancy "I Love You" sentiment!  Love that SRM Doily that's just the perfect touch! 


Next up is DT member Corri Garza with a fun and fabulous Red, White & Blue card using SRM's patriotic Say it with Stickers.  That sticker is in our Prize Packet!  Love the little red embellishments.  A perfect finishing touch to this card.


Here's a card from Angi Barrs.  She is such a talented crafter and she is also a Veteran who has proudly served in the U.S. Marine Corps.

For her card, Angi followed sketch #201.  

 

Angi created a card using reds and blues that are not your traditional colors.  Using SRM Thanks Borders, she trimmed the bottom of her card which is punched with a big, bold, beautiful star topped off with bling.  Love the SRM Doily popping out from inside the card!  Simply stunning!


Thanks to our Design Team members for their fabulous cards.  And thank you for stopping by! 

Now be sure to leave a comment here on the blog so you have a chance to WIN the Patriotic Prize Packet.  You're sure to have lots of fun with these sticker goodies!

The SRM stickers have fonts and sentiments for all different types of cards. They are a great way to add embellishment to your card. I really like the sentiment on Corri's card as it's a mix of grunge and type. Thanks for participating in OWH BlogHop.

I've never been able to use stickers effectively, and all 3 of your cards have inspired me to try again! I especially liked the Stars and Stripes Forever card -- mounting the sticker and then matting it is a GREAT idea! Thank you!

stampyra said...

All of the cards on your page are just lovely. I love the layouts. The first card is stunning. The font used is so elegant. The second card is just perfect for this Memorial Day weekend or the Forth of July. Again, another great font on the stickers. I like how the bling is in the middle of the star on the third card. They're all awesome. JIL
