Its been awhile

But Ive been busy and lazy. Its finally starting to feel like fall around here. It usually is around 65-70 degrees for fall but lately its been around 80+. So this weekend we racked leaves and put all the summer stuff away. I really still need to mow the grass but I havent found the time so...what do you ask does this have to do with stamping? Nothing its just me rambling :)
I do have a technique for you so. Here it is (its from Splitcoast Stampers) its called Pearl Ex - Pearly Window. I will have to post pics of the card later--blogger is having download pic problems.

This is what you will need to make this project:
Pearl Ex
Xyron Machine w/adhesive cartridge (or spray adhesive)
Pearl Ex
Sponge Dauber, Q-tips or stipple brushes to apply Pearl Ex
Cardstock-Neutral cardstock the size of your acetate

1. Stamp image on acetate w/Stazon

2. Let dry. Then run it through Xryon machine (or spray w/ahesive) w/the stamped image
facing up

3. Flip sheet of acetate over and peel off the other plastic sheet carfully. Try to touch the
adhesive side as little as possible

4. Start applying Pearl Ex to the image.

5. Take the neutral carstock and add adhesive or run it through Xyron machine. Then adhere the Pearl Ex covered acetate to the neutral cardstock.

6. Finish Card

Hope you have fun with this technique and make some beautiful cards to share. Again once Blogger fixes the download problem I will come back in and put pics on here. Until then have a wonderful week. Until my next rambling :)

Hi Jen.
I am planning on swapping out all of the Halloween ATC's this weekend. One of the swapper's atc's got lost in the mail and she is redoing them and sending the priority. I'm so sorry for the delay. And, yes, I do plan on hosting a Christmas ATC Swap. Funny that you ask, because I will be posting that sometime this week.

Thank you!!
