Stamped Acrylic Fun

These are great cards for high impact! Start with 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 clear acetate or acrylic. I got mine from Sparkle N Sprinkle.
The flowers are stamped with white Staz-On and then colored with Opaque Ink Markers. The pink is a Galaxy Marker, and the white is from Elmers. The fun stuff is using Sparkle N Sprinkle's Dimensional Glue on top of the flower centers , and dusting with SPARKLE SOFT flock with glitter in it!! The darling daisies are part of the TEA PARTY stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle, too! Be sure to check them out, and tell Margaret that BettyBee sent you!!
This card is the same technique, only with different shapes, stamps and colors. FUN!
Don't you love that sentiment? It's from a StudioG stamp that I've had for a while!
If you haven't done an acetate card like this one, leave me a comment, and I'll do a tutorial showing how it's done....there is a secret to lining up the four inner and outer pieces perfectly!

My students at my Teach Me Tuesday class at StudioBee had a great time making this, and two other awesome cards! If you ever get a chance, I hope you take some classes with me!

Did you win a Cricut Cake??? You didn't? Want to??? Cuttlebug Challenge still has an amazing contest going on until April 30th.
