Smackin' Acetate Technique

  • Spitzer or Spray Bottle
  • Water-based Marker
  • Cardstock
  • Acetate or a window Sheet

Step One
  • Scribble marker directly onto the Window Sheet/Acetate
  • Add the colors you want, trying not to overlap colors
  • Colors may look light with some of the basic white c/s showing
  • Marker colors are: Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, and Bumble Bee

Step Two
  • Spritz or spray water on the window sheet/acetate 
  • This will moisten and mix the colors

Step Three
  • Smack cardstock onto the wet window sheet/acetate

Step Four
  • Lift the cardstock off the window sheet/acetate

Step Five
  • Let the cardstock dry thoroughly and assemble your card 

Here is what you need to put your card together

  • 4 1/4" x 11" Basic White scored at 5 1/2
  •  4" x 5 1/4" Soft Succulence
  • Basic White scraps
  • Taylor Made Tag(#2 of 45 degree tags with #1 being the smallest

Stamp Set:
  • Artistically Inked (Thanks sentiment)

Putting the card together:
  • Take out your Stampin Emboss & Cut machine.  Die cut the two flower and the tag in Basic White c/s
  • Stamp THANKS on the tag in Memento ink
  • Take a blending brush and brush the edges of tag in Polished Pink
  • Cut about 8" of ribbon.  Threadn both ends through the tag and loop it through the ribbon.   Add 6-8 dimensionals to the back of the tag
  • Adhere Soft Succulent to the basic white base, then add your dried Smackin Acetate to the top
