Hi there Everyone!!!!
Welcome to this weeks:
Stamp Tv Kit Addicts Friday Funday Challenge!
I hope you all will play along in this months Challenge!
Remember you have a month to play and one lucky person will get a $20.00 gift code to Gina K. Designs online store! :)
So lets get started on the challenge! <3
It is to Use Acetate.
You can use it to make a butterfly, or a window on a card!
You can make a shaker or any kind of acetate card!
Remember you can use the acetate
from the packaging of some items as well.
Have fun with it and play around with it and see
what you can come up with!
These tutorials are just starting places…
you can adjust the pieces and sizes to how ever fits your needs.
I hope it will give you ideas! :)
<3 <3 <3
I started with a couple of pieces 4 1/4” X 5 1/2” of Heat Resistant Acetate.
*** I washed the acetate with soapy water and
then pat dry and then used the embossing magic pad. ******
Then stamped with Vera Mark & embossed with
White Fine Detail Embossing Powder.
****When you heat emboss... if you haven't used this acetate before,
just keep your gun moving and not to close.
as soon as you see your powder turning glossy
move on... or it will warp some. ****
I'll use the left side for something else later! :)
I took the panel on the right and cut off 3 1/2” -
you could use the whole panel if you wanted to.
I used a piece of Ocean Mist Card Stock
Cut at 4 1/4” X 11” and scored at 5 1/2”
on one side of the fold I cut off 1” then went up 2” and made a second cut.
That should give you a 2 1/2” piece of card stock before the fold.
Keep the 1” for the bottom.
The 2” piece you have from the middle, cut it in half so you have 2 1” pieces.
One you will use and the other you can save for a future project.
But you will need a extra 2 1/2” X 4 1/4" piece
to go on the backside of the flap later.
Before assembling I ran the 2 1/2” flap side of the card base
though the embossing machine using the Swiss Dots Folder.
I Then turned the paper over so it would be like looking at the inside of the card!
I taped down about 1/4” of the clear acetate panel to the
one inch piece of Ocean Mist paper.
Then making sure my panel was facing the right way I taped
down the other side of the acetate to the 2 1/2” inch flap.
Measure and make sure it is coming out to 5 1/2” when closed.
Now remember I told you to cut the extra 1” piece and a extra 2 1/2” piece.
So take those and add your tape runner or adhesive and attach those on the backside to hide where they were taped together!
I stamped the Greeting in GKD White Pigment Ink Added a Bow and Done! :)
