It's Clearly Time for Another Sweet November Sneak - and a Challenge!

Hello! Day 2 of the new Sweet November Sneak Peeks falls on All That Scraps Challenge Day so I have combined two in one today! This is Sweet November's Baby Boy With Present, and he will be available on October 4th at All That Scraps! The challenge at the ATS Challenge Blog this week is to make a clear card.

This is my first ever clear card (in fact it was finished up very last minute this afternoon because I had no clear card stock and I was waiting for my order to arrive!!) It was SO much fun to make (if difficult to get a good picture of!) I am excited about making some more!! The blue paper and the sentiment are on the inside of the card and Baby Boy and the two strips of DP are on the outside. I also used stickles and made circles and dots on the front of the card. Next time I think I will stamp on it! I wonder if heat embossing will melt the clear card stock?

The Details:
Stamp: Baby Boy With Present - Sweet November (from All That Scraps)
Paper: My Minds Eye, White (Copic XPress)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair: E50,E53,E55
Clothes:BG000,BG10,BG13 w/B21 over
Present: YR15,YR16,YR18,RV04 w/R81,R83,R85 over.
Misc: Stardust Stickles, Spellbinders Label Die

I hope you will get a chance to play in the challenge with us! There is a prize up for grabs every week and all you need to do to be eligible is to use one of the MANY stamps sold at the All That Scraps store and link your creations to the ATS Challenge blog by Tuesday at 10PM EST! Good luck, and have fun!

And for more sneak peeks, be sure to visit Amy, Rachel and Kelly! I'm sure they have lots of cuteness to show you!

Hi Traci! Love this card! The clear card add so much dimension. Great coloring and a fantastic layout. Please let us know if the heat embossing melts the card. TFS! Have a wonderful day! hugs,

Your card is awesome! I've been playing around with acetate myself and found that some types do melt!!! I think the thicker the acetate the safer it is to emboss on- otherwise you can always dry emboss. Good luck!

Such a cool acetate card, Traci! I'm inspired to play along with the ATS challenge! Thanks, always, for the inspiration!

Also, you can run the acetate through your Cuttlebug and dry emboss, but I wouldn't use your heat gun on it!
