CCS Challenge and a Tutorial

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful week. I want to say thank you to all who played in our last challenge. We had a few more players! Yea that makes me sooooo happy! Hopefully you all will find inspiration this week. It was so much fun to see every one's creations. OK so for the details:

This challenge is ALL about Something clear.
This could be acetate, clear buttons, clear baubles......maybe even clear embossing powder. Just keep it clear! Let your creativity flow! For my sample I am also going to show a tutorial for a quick and easy shaker card.
  • Gather your materials. For this project I used:
    Sage Shadow Card Base
    5 1/8 x 3 7/8 Bashful Blue Base
    5 x 3 3/4 Design Paper
    Glitter (I used Martha Stewart glitter flakes)
    3M Mounting tape on a roll
    Acetate or other clear sheet.

Let it Snow Stamp Set was used

  • Use adhesive to put your design paper to your 2nd base.
  • Use 1 3/8 Punch to cut through your main base.
  • Adhere acetate sheet to back so the clear sheet will now create a window.
  • Stamp your image and color if needed.
  • Put 3M tape all around image.
  • Pour glitter into the middle of all the mounting tape (on top of your image)
  • Lay the base with the clear window sheet over your image and push down so there will be no cracks for the glitter to escape.
  • Place mounting tape or pop up dots around the rest of the base and adhere to your card base.
  • Ta Da You're done! Now decorate as you please

    Tip: If you are planning on stamping your sentiment directly onto the base with the window….Stamp that before you place mounting tape on it. Also, if your like me and horrible at having neat mounting tape application, use a paper glue like zip dry and fill the cracks. It really works and it dries super fast.

OK now for the fun stuff! We want you to play along! Get some inspiration and show us your creativity!!! Of course their are rules. You must be a Creative Clear Stamps follower (super easy!
