You add sweetness to my life!

This card was  made with another scrapbook kit received during the 2011 Buggies and Buds Shop Hop.  This kit was from Times to Remember in Lancaster.

I added my own Chocolate Chip SU card base, inked some edges with Chocolate Chip SU ink, and inked the sentiment (from an old SU set called "Fairies" that I got on the yardsale table at a recent crop I attended) in Chocolate Chip.  Everything else was from the kit.

The Spirit of Christmas

I went to my friend Jane's house to do some stamping the other day, and she had a card our friend Amanda had made using overhead transparency sheets.  So, she gave a class and we made some clear cards :)

In a nutshell, you take an overhead transparency, cut it to size, score it, fold it, then stamp your background design on the front side using White Opaque Stazon (don't use SU White Craft because it won't dry!). 

The next part of lining up the images, etc., from front to back it a bit tricky (maybe if I get the time I can do step by step photos, but don't hold you breath for me to actually do it...lol), but you have to cover all 4 parts of the card with the same size cardstock.  If you adhere the front layer first, then turn the complete card over and line up the exact same size piece on the back (it's clear, so you can line it up exactly).  Then you can put your other pieces on the other 2 sides of the card.

It was a bit difficult to photograph a clear card, so I hope you can get an idea of how it turned out.

I like the way it turned out, and it was really fun to make.
