My addiction to clear cards continues…


Just got back from a date with my hubby (thanks mom and dad!) and we are watching the Olympics closing ceremony.  I have to admit, I haven't watched as much of the Olympics as I have in the past.  I just get so sad when people lose – it bums me out.  Weird.  Anyway…

How about a card share?  :)   This was from my Stampaway class.  Nothing new, but rather a few of my favorite techniques combined together.  For tips on stamping with white on clear, watch THIS video.  For coloring dimension on the butterfly, watch THIS.  I am still very addicted to clear cards…

Hero Arts stamps (circles, butterfly, greeting)
Hero Arts Clear Notecard
White Staz-On Ink
Ranger White Pen (butterfly trail)
EK Success punches

By the way, this uses my favorite white pen.  I finally found one I like… even better than the famous Signo.  It is the Ranger White Inkssentials pen HERE.  This one doesn't stop working mid-writing.  A good trick – if you write slowly, it looks even better.  I love this pen!

OK… off to snuggle in for a bit of lazy time. :)   Night!

  1. This is adorable, Jennifer! I didn’t know you were blogging and just came across your blog. I love your articles in CK!

    I love these clear cards too! However, I am having a hard time finding them. I also live in the Cincinnati area – any suggestions of where to go to buy them?

  3. I have never made a clear card. I love yours! and now i finally own white stazon…lol

  4. Stamp Your Art Out carries the clear cards. You can call and ask – 793-4558. If they are out, they can get them very quickly for you. Just ask for Kat or Connie.

  5. OMG! I’m so excited to meet another “Sad” olympic watcher. My DH just laughs at me, since I felt so bad for the women in one of their relay races when they dropped the baton, I thought they should get another chance. And I felt the same way so many other times. Why can’t everyone win?! Oh, Well I blab & Blab. I love clear cards and keep trying to get them right, so thanks for another great example! Cheryl

    Love your card! I have been trying to make more clear cards since taking one of your classes but it is hard to find the materials.

    This clear card is GORGEOUS! I too seem to be addicted to them, and I’m always looking for another idea – they are just so unique! Have you tried colored StazOn? I only have the white and want to push it a little further. I did try coloring from behind with some very pastel markers, and liked the effect, but it would be alot easier to just stamp with a color! Are the colors in Stazon sticky also?

  9. hey jen ;) just realized you have your own blog now.. from a link on julies :) ( i’m on the a muse team with her…)

    i totally added you to my feedblitz so i will get updates all the time now :)

  10. Kerry-b I am just so McGuired-inspired now… I’m not going to be able to get to my card stuff soon enough…
    Thank you, Jen!

  11. this is superb Jennifer!

    aren’t those Ranger pens the bomb? I just bought my second one; it’s a spare in case I can’t find the first one or it runs out of ink someday at midnight when all the stores are closed…….sigh, I’m a compulsive hoarder.

    I have a question for you Jennifer, how do you “clean off the fingerprints from your clear cards after you’ve made them? I always see a lot of smudges on mine. Thanks

  13. Beautiful card, Jennifer! Love it! So glad you had a little date, too! ;) Have a wonderful week! Hugs!

    Love watching your videos…love, love, love them. Remember, I suggested that we should have a JenniferMcGuireInk channel on our TV’s. I would watch commercial interruptions except for videos of Colin! :)
    I bought 2 of your suggested pens. I’m always on the lookout for a better white pen. Thanks for the information!

    HERMOSA!!!!!!! ;)
