Party girls and cupcakes cards, using peel off stickers

The humble peel off sticker doesn't always get a great press in the world of crafting. However, they can be a very handy addition to your crafting stash and a little can go a very long way.
Check out these beautiful designs by my talented friend Angie, a member of the Foil Play design team, for lots of inspiration on how to make some gorgeous cards and tags.
Angie has used very simple ingredients, including peel off stickers, gel pens, ribbon and a touch of bling.
I'm sure you'll agree that the results are stunning!
On some cards, such as the right hand side of the one above, you can see that Angie has used the 'negative' part of the peel off as well - i.e. the bit left behind on the sticker sheet when you peel the main design away.
Many stickers have been stuck onto card then Angie has decoupaged around the design and mounted them with 3D self adhesive foam, to add dimension to the finished projects.
Peel off sticker sheets are a very inexpensive yet versatile addition to your crafting stash.
For hints and tips on getting the best out of peel off stickers, check out this previous blog post.
Angie used the silver peel off sticker sheet pictured below (and the same design in gold) to make all of her cards and tags.
Foil Play stocks a wide range of peel off stickers for many occasions. As you can see from all of the projects here, a couple of sheets can go a very long way!
