You asked and we have answered!

A mid-week STICKER-A-THON is about to start!

Wednesday, October 10th - Saturday, October 13th

We'll start at 12:01 am Wednesday and end midnight on Saturday.

Just Ducky,KESagers, Donnacr, Cathy1 and CynthiaSillitoe will host.
CynthiaSillitoe is filling in for KESagers on the 13th.

There are many beautiful stickers...
that can be used for ATCs......Inchies.... Chunkies and all kinds of fun art...just make sure there is a sticker stuck somewhere on your art. (Homemade stickers count too.)

The rules are simple - somewhere on your art there must be a sticker and yes - postage stamps and rub-ons count! So you can do a bit of prep work before YOUR start time, but shouldn't make any cards till your start time...

For instructions on how to upload your art to this thread please clink on this link for one of our most recent marathons:


Please negotiate trades through private messages but if you see art that you like a rep point for the artist is always nice.

Any questions don't hesitate to ask - there is always someone around to answer.

Let's have some fun with all those stickers! :) :) :)

Bringing this over from the other thread:

This is how I would define a homemade sticker: If you have stamped it on label or sticker paper or if you run it through your Xyron sticker maker then it's a sticker. I think this is how we have defined it in the past. I know it's a loose definition but we've always wanted to just keep this fun and create an opportunity to use something that is often frowned upon.

10-08-2012, 05:06 PM
Ready to play, made a lot of backgrounds, and collected stickers, homemade and others!

10-08-2012, 05:18 PM
I'm still combing through stashes. It's amazing how many stickers I've managed to acquire. And, of course, if I use them up, I can buy more.

10-08-2012, 05:54 PM
Yipee - an excellent excuse to use those stickers I keep buying but never use LOL

Donnacr and I will be looking after you all while the other half of the world sleeps so have heaps of fun everyone. I am looking forward to lots of trades.

10-08-2012, 06:46 PM
Looking forward to it :)

10-08-2012, 07:38 PM
Was to Hobby lobby and they had sticker half off
I got some really great ones. I just need to do some backgrounds.
then I will be ready.

10-08-2012, 07:52 PM
I was starting to worry I didn't have enough, but I found some Dover art sticker books I forgot. Plus i found some stuff for the chunkyathon! Still a couple of stashes to check, too.

10-08-2012, 08:17 PM
Oooooh...I just found a box of art stuff that didn't make it from the old studio to the new one. Bliss.

10-08-2012, 08:24 PM
I was starting to worry Cynthia - not enough stickers - thank goodness you found them,

Dsign - half price stickers during a sticker a thon - how lucky can you be

I'm at work at the moment - just 3.5 hours to go until I can go home and art.

10-08-2012, 09:35 PM
I know. I would have had to shop, which wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't shopped so much lately. Besides, it's fun using up stashes because then I feel vindicated and thrifty and not just a hoarder!

10-08-2012, 10:31 PM
I should be able to play. Retrieved the stickers from the box and they are in front of me now!
I'v cut off another celery head and would love to use it to stamp the background! Yeah to Celery!

I found some silver hologram stickers as well. They are really very beautiful but I don't think they will scan well?!

10-09-2012, 12:47 AM
I haven't played along with anything here for a while so I think I may able to squeeze a card or two in for here.....probably more if I can hide myself away! :)

10-09-2012, 02:00 AM

I'v cut off another celery head and would love to use it to stamp the background! Yeah to Celery!

Once I cut a broccoli flower, right in half and used it as a stamp. Turned out like a wonderful tree!

10-09-2012, 03:11 AM
Broccoli huh? Must check that out!

10-09-2012, 03:18 AM
I am hoping the pc will behave. It would just shut itself off! That would be a REAL problem!

10-09-2012, 04:36 AM
While I am waiting for the a-thon, I am making some Christmas greeting cards.
Looking trough my magazines and bookes, I found a tutorial in Craft Stamper magazine about floating flakes. Choose a stamp, embossing ink and heat resistant acetate.
Cover with Stamp N Bond, heat it, and then wrap in the gilding flakes (nr 1 and 2)
and for the 3th one I used Perfect pearls. Makes great stickers for Christmas cards.
Wanted to share this with you.

10-09-2012, 06:39 AM
Those look amazing mariloupatch. Just signing in to the new thread

10-09-2012, 08:51 AM
I'd like to give it a whirl:)

10-09-2012, 09:50 AM
OOO Marilou those are gorgeous.

Unfortunately, my adventures with embossing, have not been tooooo successful! :err:

10-09-2012, 11:37 AM
checking in new thread! and wanted to tell you that I just drove by Michael's and didn't even slow down! :policeman:;)

yup, and I have a coupon. I'VE GOT TO START USING WHAT i'VE ALREADY HAVE.
I bought one of those sticker maker thingy's online and it came with 8 rolls of sticker stuff, and I've Never used it.

course now I'm home and sorta wishing that I'd maybe just peeked in Michaels. :unsure:
maybe I missed the most fabulous sticker sale in the world. :swoon:

I'm just cracking up at the thought of stamping with celery and broccoli. I wouldn't have thought of that, though I knew you could use potatoes....

10-09-2012, 12:23 PM
Yippee! Made some backgrounds and found bunches of yummy stickers! Ideas are floatinga round in my head. Can't wait to start!

so guess I sit here drumbing my fingers.. waiting fer midnight... ya know we got to start one of these marathon things at NOON.

10-09-2012, 08:24 PM
Yea Ducky I am still at the day job - it is 1.20pm so still some hours to go until I can go home LOL. Mind you I am not organised to do stickers yet but hopefully when I get home I will haul out the backgrounds I have prepared and begin.

Make sure you get a good sleep cos when you get up tomorrow morning we will have already been arting for a day and Miloccpep has the drop on all of us. LOL

10-09-2012, 09:27 PM
Soo... I have tons of stickers (I'm actually ashamed at how many lol), and I could use them for this a-thon. I've never participated in an a-thon though. Do we have to trade with the first person who asks or is it usually waited until the end of the a-thon?

10-09-2012, 09:52 PM
PinkZombie - you can trade with whoever you would like to trade with. Trades are negotiated through private messages - not in the thread. I trade to the first person who asks for a card because for me it is the easiest way to keep track but others do not trade that way. However, if you wait until the end of the marathon you will miss out on most of the fun. The trading can be fast and furious and some artists don't have any cards left by the end. Also if a card gets traded just ahead of your request for it - it's nothing personal - just part of this fast crazy pace that happens in a marathon.

If you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask and I hope you have a lot of fun! Welcome to your first marathon!

10-09-2012, 09:55 PM
Tonight I've been sorting through my stickers. I've also been looking through some cards that haven't traded. I realized that some additional sticker embellishments are just what these cards need. I say - if we have un-traded art that is crying out for stickers we should go for it! So feel free to re-work old cards/art with some sticker fun and we'll call it "cool" for this marathon. ;)

10-09-2012, 10:13 PM
Thanks KES. I think I got it ^-^

Just Ducky
10-10-2012, 12:21 AM
I am a sticking as I type... a few minutes after midnight and I am roll'in rollin'... since I am tired and a bit crosseyed, this first few are a tad simple.. back shortly...

PinkZombie... welcome to the fun spot to be for the next few days....
you can post your cards in your gallery and also here in the thread... show and tell ya know....

Just Ducky
10-10-2012, 12:45 AM

Good morning everyone! Ready to get started - part of the day. Just let the cleaning lady in, so I am hiding in my craft room :biglaugh: A big welcome to Pink Zombie.
Ducky, love your sleepy bears. Of to my first cards!

10-10-2012, 02:30 AM
Love your bears so cute ^-^

I got one ATC finished tonight, heading to bed now. Here it is: (Sunshine poofy-ish sticker and a Lisa Frank dolphin sticker). The lines on the white border are actually hot pink, silly scanner :cool: Traded!

Is it ok to wait to the end of the a-thon to mail stuff after we agree on trades to save on postage in case someone wants to trade more than once with something that's uploaded on a later day?

10-10-2012, 02:36 AM
It was easy to get started, everything was laying out on my desk since last night,
and here are the first 3:
110340 ST-a-thon 1

110341 ST-a-thon 2 traded

110342 ST-a-thon 3 on hold

10-10-2012, 03:28 AM

and another 3, distress background and stickers

110344 ST A-thon 4 on hold

110345 St A-thon 5 traded

110346 St A-thon 6

10-10-2012, 05:39 AM
PinkZombie - Your first sticker card is fabulous! So glad you can play with us. Yes - please do wait until the end of the marathon to mail. The general rule is that trades should be mailed within 2 weeks of the end of the marathon. In fact since there are so many marathons in the next 4 weeks several of us are going to wait until all of them are over before we mail. The key is to communicate what your plans are and if someone doesn't want to wait until the end of all of the next few marathons that's OK as long as everything is clearly communicated when the trade is negotiated.

10-10-2012, 05:43 AM
Love those bear cards Ducky!

Mariloupatch your backgrounds are beautiful!

Miloccpep - that's a great combination of punch art and stickers!

We are off to a great start!

Insomnia hit so I am up early but there is a nap with my name on it this morning. Don't know if I'll get anything made before my nap but I'm enjoying the art already posted. It's another cold damp day - perfect for staying inside and making some art.

10-10-2012, 06:03 AM
Thanks Kes, maybe I could make more of those backgrounds on demand ;)

10-10-2012, 06:38 AM

Came home from new job (slightly exhausted and frazzled), relaxed, made some cards, went to upload them and YOIKS!!!! no space left in my Gallery.:sad::cry::arghh:

Wow! A ton of cards have appeared this morning! Great art everyone!

Ceejay the bright colors in your sticker collages are a cheerful good start!

Hazardgal - you have a really nice selection of images in your collages - rock on!

Good luck Suze with the computer - I hope you'll be back online soon.

Fabulous frogs Miloccpep!

Donnacr you have an amazing selections of cards already - and on your first day of a new job too - congratulations!

Wil - Can't get enough of those rooster cards! Also if you run out of stickers - postage stamps count for this marathon.

Mariloupatch - you are rocking out this marathon!

Spooky good cards Sharlene!

Howdy Cynthia!

A nap always makes things better so here I am and ready to get started on some cards. ;)

and a couple more will follow soon.

10-10-2012, 01:05 PM
Thanks for whoever suggested earlier in the thread to use a punch to cut stickers out of sticky paper! I hadn't thought of that. A simple round punch made cool holographic disco balls, but unfortunately they don't scan very well.

S-A-Thon 6 (on hold) and 7

Amapola - great cards - the Russian Doll cards are so neat!

Candy Corn Kitty

Just Visiting - traded

The black cat is my original photo digitally altered and the turkey is my father's photo which I have digitally altered. That turkey came to visit one day and took a peek in our window! The turkey card was originally created for an off-site swap but I had extra fixins so I just made one for the marathon.

10-10-2012, 01:47 PM
Night Miloccpep, sorry to have to leaf for a couple of hours, it is our wedding anniversary and we are off to a posh diner.

Desperate for your farm card Ducky!

Hi Dsign49! You always start of with a nice group of cards!

10-10-2012, 05:13 PM
This thread makes me happy. When I was a kid, I grew up with Mrs Grossman's stickers. Oh, and Lisa Frank! I used to get Stickers And Such magazine which is where I first learned about mail art. They did a feature on decorated envelopes. One of their suggestions was to cover an envelope with glue and then glitter. Um, I figure the Post Office was not crazy about that idea! :wideeyed:

10-10-2012, 05:31 PM
Hello Everyone!!

What fun you seem to be having!! I am not a big "sticker" person but I have lots of stamps!! I also have a new Michael's store not too far away. Are they a good source for nice stickers? The ones at the $ store are not so great here. I am posting a couple of cards using stamps. Is it too early for Christmas???

I heard something very interesting on the radio. Our creativity peaks when we are tired!! The thinking part of our brain tends to "shut down" and the creativity part takes over!! No going to bed yet in Europe!!!

Keep on sticking!

Happy (belated) anniversary, Marilou! Nice to see some friends - and to make some new ones. Suze - thanks for the heads up!!

10-10-2012, 05:32 PM
Hi everyone!

*grabs one of Ducky's cupcakes* Yummy! <3 :wub:
I'm sorry I'm late! ;) Had a wonderfully lazy day with a bit of shopping and a lot of coffee. :cool:
Also bought some new cool stickers and started a hand (my newest addiction) for this athon. :)

Happy wedding anniversary, mariloupatch! <3 I think that your success in making such a long marriage work is a better reason to celebrate than getting older. ;)

Also, holy hell! It's amazing what all you wonderful people produced! <3 I hope I get a chance to trade with all of you! :wubclub:

Michaels has so many stickers it's hard to choose, so I buy to many. I have 2 Michaels and 2AC Moorez within a 15 minute drive. That is not good according to my hubby, but good for ME.

Hi Rita... you doing so many great this thon... and look, you all fresh and starting your day and I wore out and ready for bed... what a small world but these time zones make it interesting...

I had a gal ask about non-sticker trade...
and yes, you do NOT have to ask for or ONLY trade your A-Thon cards.... in fact I just now asked one of our players for a non-sticker card.... it's always nice to do thon card for thon card, but it is not a rule... remember, we are here for fun stuff not a bunch of ol' rules...

10-10-2012, 10:57 PM
Yay ... fun fun fun ... sorry ... I think I'm overtired ... must go make some sticker cards ... in my sleep ... then I get creative, first thing ... EARLY IN THE MORNING ... I have found is my optimal "creative" time. When I get tired, I wanna sleep. Night everyone ... catch you in the morning.

10-10-2012, 11:13 PM
What's this about getting all sticky?

Oh wait! We're supposed to use STICKERS? I have some of those! :yes:

I hope to be able to play a tiny bit, even though I have too much to do and too little time to do it in. Sometimes a girl just has to play!

10-10-2012, 11:14 PM
PS: Great cards everyone!

10-11-2012, 11:31 PM
After some technical problems, I finally scanned another card, Puppy Dreams. There are some super crafty folks making some super awesome cards! Keep up the great work!

10-11-2012, 11:32 PM
Oh nooooooo - not the dreaded food shopping! I dread it also but got it done earlier this week when I was running errands. I like Sharlene's idea! Ceejay, Cherie and Dsign49 you are finishing my evening with some wonderful cards and I thank you! To bed with me - have a good night everyone!

10-12-2012, 02:27 AM
Hahaha I am not the only one going for grocery shopping, unfortunately the shop is way out of the craft shop:sad:
I updated my gallery, answered my PM's. I made 18 cards so far and only 5 left!
Sharlene54 & Kes & Miloccpep have to make a first choice, and I hope to have some new ones this afternoon. Sleep tight for those in bed, and good morning to the others.

Miloccpep - that celery stamping is way cool! Welcome Mooscastle! Cathy - your kitty chunky is so sweet. I think I have some sticker chunkies coming today also. Your doing great PinkZombie! Be back after my nap. :)

10-12-2012, 07:36 AM
Thanks Kristin! Yes, the 'rose' turned out quite well! The size of the rose would depend on how many ribs are taken out from the whole celery.

boy.......... all you gals are really getting fired up here... each day is showing more and more eye candy...

right now I am pooped.. and broke... but the cupboards are full of food but still got no idea of what to make for dinner... and MY store was out of Ice Cream...ice cream, never heard of a big supermarket running out of ice cream.. boy, the store manager made a mistake walking by cause I let him know I was not a happy shopper... so after my rant I feel very mellow now..:cute:

10-12-2012, 03:01 PM
My offerings for today.

What . . . NO ICE CREAM!!!!! Boy I'm telling you I'm finding that all of a sudden certain things will be suddenly out of stock at the store - I guess it's a sign of the times but no ice cream is a crime.:mad:

10-12-2012, 03:17 PM
I quite agree ... when I want ice cream ... I WANT ICE CREAM !!! So glad you gave that manager a piece of your mind, Ducky ... you gave him one for the team !

10-12-2012, 03:57 PM
I am pooped, we had a cheese fondue, with of course a nice bottle of white burgundy wine...so girls, I do not need ice cream , I am full....with cheese...night all, till tomorrow!

10-12-2012, 04:33 PM
I love fondue!!!! I call "road trip" to Mariloupatch's house!

10-12-2012, 04:47 PM
I'm coming with you KESAGER. Who else is joining on a road trip?

10-12-2012, 05:02 PM
Who is hosting the Chunky marathon?
I don't know if I will be able to play in that one as I should have some grandkids for the weekend.

10-12-2012, 05:02 PM

All of these are traded except Think and Joy!

Here is # 5 from the tape series. All of these have a row of stitch tape on them. I'm thrilled with how the Low Tack Artist Tape added to these. I found that on the Envie thread. Have fun creating!

Wow, people, your art is awesome! <3
KESagers, I just love your kitty cards! Especially the pink one, of course. ;)

Also: A big thank you goes to the lovely people who sent good thoughts and prayers my mom's way! She could come home today, the surgery went better than anyone would have expected... It's just awesome! <3

And: I finally made an ATC for this athon! *lol* I'm so sloooow...
The dinosaur and bone are rather thick and hard stickers with a bit of glitter, background is a collage from magazine paper. (The little hearts on yellow BG don't belong to the card! That's just the birthday card envelope I used as the background for the photo)
I love creating with stickers! <3

10-12-2012, 07:21 PM
Just made a fresh cup of coffee and going to sit down and go through the lovely art posted since I last checked.

Hope everyone is enjoying themselves. We are having a weather blast/storm here so a perfect time to pick up the art.

10-12-2012, 07:55 PM
Thank you prayer-at-night! Those tape cards are so cool Hazardgal! Rock on Ceejay and PinkZombie! Morning Cathy!

I'm tired ... think I'll retire to my studio and "stick-up" a few more cards for tomorrow. Catch y'all in the am.

10-12-2012, 11:57 PM
More and more great cards keep showing up! This has been a really great marathon and there is still one more day to go. CynthiaSillitoe is filling in for me as co-host tomorrow. I will try to check in as often as I can but tomorrow is going to be one of those days that might not go as planned.

Don't forget to check the calendar for the dates of all of the upcoming marathons:


I think there is a lot of fun ahead. Night everyone and have a great day tomorrow!

10-12-2012, 11:58 PM
Yep, bed for me...more fun in the morning!

I'm here Ducky watching over all the great art. Have made one card and posted it earlier but haven't had the time for much arting this week. Have also been trying to catch up on requests so that I have a clear desk LOL.

Loving what you are all posting.

10-13-2012, 02:52 AM
sathon 23: Wedding Dress - Origami white wedding dress and stickers. Scan does no justice to the dress.
sathon 23a: a better scan of the wedding dress pattern. this is not mounted on a card and the size is bigger. Chiyogami paper.

10-13-2012, 05:53 AM
Here are my new inchies :



10-13-2012, 07:28 AM
Wonderful art, MouseThatRoars, Vero, and Rita! I'm just up with insomnia...going to sleep some more and then I can be a charming co-host and maybe create some more art. :)

10-13-2012, 07:59 AM
Can we get to Belgium by road? I call shotgun ... LOL

KESagers ... your kittens are lovely.
Ceejay, you need a boot or a plane to come to Belgium, but you are very welcome,
could crack a bottle or two :twitcy:

10-13-2012, 08:05 AM
I am not feeling very happy...early morning they delivered the logs for the fire place, ya this morning! They dropped them in front of the garage door, shortest way to stack them where they belong. BUT, we do not have access to the car, it is pouring rain, and it is election day tomorrow, so the logs have to be moved.....and that I was doing all morning. Silky wet, my back hurts... pff, need a little nap first I think, a shower and a good pot of coffee.
Meanwhile congrats to all cards posted, great art everyone!

10-13-2012, 08:54 AM
Mariloupatch... what a way to start your day. We live on the downside of a hill and when wood was delivered here they parked above and tossed them down. It made for some crazy woodpiles:) I restacked often. Take it easy.

10-13-2012, 09:03 AM
32 degrees here - our first freeze of the season and after the summer we had it makes me happy happy. Allergies are supposed to calm down now. :)

Just popping in to say "Hi!" I see more great cards and inches!

10-13-2012, 09:17 AM
I have just returned home from my brother-in-law's 50th birthday party - am going to load my latest cards and head straight to bed.
I read in a magazine that patty pans (or cupcake liners) could be used to make skirts, so I tried it and got a little carried away with different styles

10-13-2012, 12:09 PM

Ok, going to see what stickers I have left......

10-13-2012, 12:40 PM
All of you ROCK. I hardly could keep up your pace. I have 3 more which I'll upload in a little while.

We had our first frost this morning, but I got to walk with my walking partner and it turned out to be a wonderful morning to walk. The leaves are just beginning to turn and I hope next weekend to take some great autumn pics.

I do have some stickers left. Maybe some more cards later. I need one of those bottles of the 300 stash of wine, a little cheese and some great bread. LUNCH anyone.

10-13-2012, 12:57 PM
Three more.
