Stamping on Transparency

The Practical Scrapper Design Team was challenged to use something sheer and transparent. I used permanent ink to stamp a bracket frame on the transparency and then used Versamark ink to emboss the flowers for a sophisticated sympathy card. Attaching acetate is always tricky so I added a dragonfly brad to help hold it along with some small dabs of glue beneath some of the larger flowers.

For this second card, I stamped the flowers with Versamark ink directly to the card base and chalked the flowers. Then I attached the clear bracket frame over the image. To see more ideas, visit Practical Scrappers.

My layout features a loop of wire that was strung with buttons and attached with staples. Visit Practical Scrappers to find more inspiration using staples & paperclips on your next project.

It is 10 Things Tuesday so be sure not to miss the girls at Practical Scrappers and the ten clever things they have done with heart shaped paper punches.  I chose a mini heart punch and was swept away with a rainbow of banners.
