Stamping on Window Sheets

Flower Shop stamp set on window sheets

 

I have had a few requests lately asking about stamping on the Window Sheets shown on page 156 of the catalog. These clear acetate sheets can be used as windows in boxes or for shaker frames on cards but you can also stamp directly onto them.

 

Ink up your stamp in one of the StazOn inks – black or white –  and stamp onto the window sheet and allow it to dry. The window sheets can be slippery so a little extra care can be needed to ensure the stamp doesn’t slide around on the window sheets once you make contact.

You can also stamp with VersaMark ink and heat emboss with any of the embossing powders. This method doesn’t need any drying time so you can move right onto assembling the card.

Both of these cards were made with a flower image from the Flower Shop Stamp Set (wood 130939, clear 130942) and the Pansy Punch. To purchase the bundle and save 15%, please see the bottom of this post.

So, I gotta ask – which card is your favorite? Crushed Curry or Basic Black.  Please leave a comment and let me know.

Also, if you have a rubber stamping question for me, please leave a comment or e-mail me. Your question could be answered here next.

Crushed Curry Flower Shop on acetate

This Crushed Curry card features a patterned paper from the Eastern Elegance designer series paper package. 

The greeting is part of the Four You stamp set and is just the perfect size for this card.

I positioned the flower and greeting towards the bottom for this card.

Flower Shop on Window Sheets in Black

 

 The paper used on this card is from the Modern Medley designer series paper stack.

I decided to center the flower and greeting on this card and used the same "hello" greeting.

 

 

Flower stamped on window sheet with black StazOn  

 

 For this card, I stamped on the Window Sheet with Black StazOn ink and the White StazOn works as well.

The ink does take awhile to dry but will dry completely with no smudging.

    Both are pretty but I prefer the yellow one.

    I love the color black, but in this card I like the crushed curry better!

    I love both of these cards, but I am really into black and white this year. I was wondering about the heat embossing. I have never tried it on acetate. It always seemed like the heat would curl or burn the acetate?

    Hmmm I really like both cards. I like the patterned paper of the crush curry and I love polka dots on the black card.

    Just like with cardstock, you do not want to overheat the powder but “normal” use will not melt or curl the window sheets. SU! windows sheets are a medium weight so that keeps them from being damaged as well.
