Miss You


Here's my card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - "Let's Be Clear" - to use something clear on your card. I used a strip of clear acrylic packaging that I saved and ran through the Big Shot with a Cuttlebug ef. To anchor it onto the poppy panel, I attached it with mini brads. I used a SU Summer Silhouettes stamp for the image, heat embossing it with clear ep, then sponging it with red, orange and yellow pigment inks. The sentiment is from CAS-ual Friday stamps, and I added 3 more mini brads to the image panel. The dsp is retired SU! pure poppy.

I'm also entering this into the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #12 - "B is for brads or buttons." There's no snarky this time around......I'm being nice instead :)

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

Oh my Carol this is a beautiful card. I love silhouettes anyway, so this caught my eye! The clear embossed packaging material make for a great look on this card! I love that you attached it with brads, your sponging looks great too. I want to do a similar effect for a card I have in mind. Now just to get the time to do it! lol Hugs, Brenda

WoW Carol! There are so many things I adore about this card...the embossed acetate, the sponging, that image...and of course the brads :)
Thanks for playing along with the sisterhood of snarky stampers for the "B is for Buttons or Brads" challenge!

Love your sponging on here Carol! Such pretty, pretty colors to use with that image. Great way to use the clear acrylic too.

LOVE the clear piece on there. Embossing it was very clever as was the way you attached it. Now then I'm going to have to hunt down some clear stuff to emboss and give this technique a whirl.

For some reason your card sparked the perfect card idea for me for the Snarky Sisters, if only I have a stamp for it... we shall see. It has absolutely nothing to do with your card but that's how my brain works sometimes. Most times.

Oh you gotta know this is MY kind of card. Love that bird silhouette, and so very beautiful with your sunset sponging. I'm really impressed at the way the ef embossed with the acetate. That is so classy, with great texture. Again, great dp combination to accentuate the beautiful focal image. WTGo. TFS & Hugs

Lindsey said...

You know I'm going to have to try embossing clear packaging now -- this looks terrific! And what a great idea to use the brads to affix the panel. The image panel is beautiful as well. Thanks for joining the fun at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

Very pretty card. Snark is not always required, sometimes you just have to be nice (unfortunately). Thanks for joining us at SoSS

Karen Schroeder said...

Awesome card! Love the acetate and how you attached it with the brad! Very, very pretty!
