Two for One

Can you see thru it? If your answer is yes, then you are in baby! ;) Transparencies and acrylic are so hot right now they could almost melt. You can use a transparency or acrylic just like you would use paper. There are some amazing designs, tutorials and templates available. I will try and bring some here for you.

Transparency Card
Make A Wish Window Box
Sheer 5 Ring Tab Book

Tip: Acrylic and transparencies are not porous. That means ink will not absord into it. So if you are NOT using, staz-on, alcohol ink or painting on it, it will probably need to be heat set or it will rub off or smear.

These are some cards that I have been working on.
The first is a spinner card. The little bird (from SU!: Pun Fun) spins across the opening on the front of the card.
This card is using my new Hero Arts owl set and Cuttebug embossing folder. Did you notice both cards are bird themed? ;) Another super hot trend right now!! And, I colored the images with my Copic markers. Betty, at Stamp Attic, was so gracious to share a few important tips and tricks with me for coloring with my Copics. If you live in the Anchorage area you really should try and stop by her store or attend one of her many monthly classes. You will learn alot and be totally inspired by all of the great projects in her store. She has an amazing offering of the best products on the market!
