Summer Card Camp - Day 2

I am a day behind so this post is about yesterday's video technique of creating a window card and using acetate.  I am not a fan of acetate because of the worry that the inked stamp will slip when I am stamping on it and also I cannot bear the fingerprints that eventually are left behind!

However, that does not mean that I was not going to give this a try!  So here is my card in this weeks colour combination of orange, pink, purple, light blue and white:

Paper: PTI; Neenah
Ink: Memento; Stazon; Copics
Stamps: Hero Arts; Unity
Other: Spellbinders Die; Hero Arts Gems/Rhinestones; Acetate

I simply created a window with my Spellbinders die and stamped the sentiment on the acetate which is adhered to the inside of the card.

That little heart is from Unity Ippity.  I pieced it together in three layers.

Unfortunately it's not perfect, I think I just wiggled that stamp as I was lifting it off the acetate!

Sorry I am rushing today, I am going to the gym in a few moments then my sister wants me to take her to do MORE shopping!  See you later with another card I made yesterday!

Love the cutout window shape - Nice card, B!
I guess acetate is just one of those things we have to keep trying til we get it right! You did a great job :)

Love your window card. I haven't tried one yet - a little out of my comfort zone :-) Your use of the colors is fantastic. Looking forward to seeing more of your cards during our "camp" experience!
