"Luminous Poppies" on Acetate!

 Hello Dear Stamper Friends:

I am so excited to Welcome you to the new Release Spring Collection 2013 of Memory Box... and to our Blitz Week/ Challenge "use ONLY stamps"...

Make sure that you scroll down to see Anne's post from early this morning...as well!

Today,  I am bringing to you this card in acetate...using as a focal point these beautiful "Poppies".


Poppy acetate front

I used NEW and old stamps from Memory Box...I am so happy that now, we, stampers have the option of cling...which come in  the new Spring Collection: the Poppy is called "Luminous Poppies". The sentiment is so perfect for the occasion: "April showers BRING MAY FLOWERS" and it comes with a tiny flower stamp (that I did not use) on the side for the wood mount and separate for the cling...so you end up with 2 stamps for the price of one..nice Huh? 

You can see on the photo the tiny stamp on the side of the wood stamp...

Poppy acetate supplies

NOTE: When stamping on acetate is important that you use "Stazon" ink and try to lift upwards your stamp without moving it, the surface is very slippery. My stamping was not perfect but I liked the look of "imperfection"...this tells you that it was "Handmade".


Poppy acetate detail up

I embellished the front with some rhinestones that I glued with "Glossy Accents", my first choice of adhesive when using acetate and embellishments...and the "Vintage Scroll" stamp is a must have stamp ...I used it quite often in my cards for accents and backgrounds...


Poppy acetate detail bottom

I heat emboss the "Luminous Poppies" with white embossing powder on the inside, for a "shadow effect", on this lovely "Distressed Dots Pool" patterned cardstock also from Memory Box...and sponged the flowers and the edges with some ink...

Beautiful card! I love the look of the acetate layer! Beautiful designs too, and I'm happy to hear about the cling option!

The poppies are wonderful, love the shadow of the white poppies behind the acetate. Great job!!

The poppy stamp is gorgeous and I love the design of this card. Great idea to have cling as well, less storage space required !

Love the poppy stamp and the layering with the black and white stamping!

Gorgeous card! Love that poppy stamp! I really like that it's in cling.

Gorgeous card...thank you for sharing the process!

What a fabulous card! Thanks for the inspiration. :D

OMG I am thrilled that MB images will be offered as cling mounts! That poppy stamp is gorgeous!

Great poppy stamp. Going to have to get this one. Love your card too!

great focus on the poppy stamp using the acetate!! very creative

Love the poppy stamp. Using it in two ways is terrific.I really like having cling stamps which are easier to store.

Wow, Bibiana, this is a beautiful card and I love this look. Where do you get the acetate like what you used?
I am also happy to hear now there are cling options in the stamps.
You did a fantastic job on this card.

Hello Everybody:
Here BIBIANA...thank you so much for all the comments...YES we are happy with the cling stamps too!!...and the poppy stamp is a hit!!
as for the acetate, Dorothy, asked: I got it at my local scrapbook store...so check first your local stores, but I heard that you might look at Office Depot/Kelly Paper under "clear plastic covers/acetate" 10mm. width. the transparencies can be used but sometimes not so sturdy...look for the width. Simon Says sells some "acetate tags" but not the 81/2x11 sheets that I used...if somebody has a better info let us know..thanks again!
and keep on commenting for a chance to win a wonderful stamp...!!!

Bibiana, ton idée est vraiment très créative. J'adore !

I forget about using acetate, and not sure why because I simpley adore this technique ... what a lovely card creation!

Super card - love the look with the acetate ! Love when Memory Box comes out with new products and the fact that now 'cling' stamps are available. Thanks for sharing your beautiful card !

Beautiful card! I love how the front and inside work together!

I have always loved the acetate cards-what a wonderful inspiration! Think I am going to give this a try-thanks so much.

Oh this came out so pretty!

This is so uniquely creative, Bibiana! Don't know how you come up with these fantastic ideas. Great use of the stamps! And that envelope is over the top. So happy to see the clings........wood is so old school! Ha. Love what you've done here - again!
