Stamp the Just Believe plant stamp on a 3″ square piece of Acetate (Stampin’ Up! window sheet) using Jet Black StazOn ink.

Let the ink dry and then flip the acetate over so the stamp side is facing down.   Put Crystal Effects on the un-stamped side of the acetate.

Added a few drops of Baja Breeze re-inker and tap your finger in it to move it around to the areas you want it in.

Added a drop of Tempting Turquoise re-inker on the top left side and tapped it with my finger to move it around a bit leaving the bottom of the acetate light.

Crumple a piece of tissue paper and then put it on top of the reinker.

Let it dry and then trim the edges so the tissue is flush with the acetate.  Mounted it on a piece of Whisper White card stock.

Added white gel pen to make the plants pop.

Added Whisper White, Basic Black, Baja Breeze and Tempting Turquoise panels.  Added Baja Breeze Seam Binding and Basic Black Taffeta ribbon.   Here is the finished card measuring 5.5″ x 4.25″.

May your day be full of wonders.

Until my next post.. . . . .

  5. Holy shmokes, Michelle!! WOW!! I LOVE this card! The colors are GORGEOUS!!! What an awesome technique!! Thanks for the tutorial… you ROCK!!~

  6. Thanks for reminding me about this technique. I’ve wanted to try it and I really like how you’ve used a silhouette stamp rather than the way I’ve seen it done before. This makes a pretty card!!

  7. Fantastic acetate/tissue card and tutorial! Your card is beautiful. I love that vibrant color (black on blue is always a striking combo.) The wrinkles are right up my distressing alley, too. 🙂 I need a look like that to create a background for a card I have in mind so I will try it this week! THANKS! 🙂

  8. WOW! This is such a cool technique! Thanks!

  10. Hi,
    Could this technique be used to make jewelry? I amalways looking for something different to try.

  11. Wonderful….thank you for such a wonderful tutorial.

  12. Do you think I could do this very large on …..say a wrapped painters canvas? Maybe 20 x30?

  13. Gorgeous project, thanks for the tutorial! I’ve been dying to try the whole stamping on acetate thing..
