Frustrating - Need Help - 911

First the GOOD NEWS...get over to Creative Clear Stamps from my sidebar...go go go because
 "Now is your chance to save some money AND receive a special free secret gift from the Creative Clear Stamps Store! Save $10.00 on your purchase of $30.00 or more from Wednesday November 4th through Sunday November 8th only!!!  go go go!!!

Now the BAD NEWS - Heeellllpppppp!!! I have just wasted an entire evening trying to work with CLEAR Cardstock!!  ok, and now I officially hate that stuff!  Used all but one sheet and this is the only card I came up with that... didn't smear, folded straight, i was able to peel the cover film off without messing up the corners, got the inside card in almost straight, used Stazon, tried to emboss (how dumb was that!!! don't even ask!!)....this stuff is a night mare!!! now I'm sure its "operator error"...so if anyone can point me in the direction of a good toot...would be greatly appreciated.

so how sad is this poor pathetic card....it has killed my mojo (hopefully just for tonight)....did I say I hate this stuff!!!! It's not blurry, that's just the shadow..I tried to show that its clear cardstock....did I say I hate that stuff!!!  sorry, Creative Clear Stamps..this is my "clear" card for this week's challenge...did I say?...you got it!



Below is another card with the Creative Clear Stamp set "Holiday Sentiments"...it is sure better than the one with clear cardstock! .... Did I say...I know...give it a rest already!!!


this one is more my style (big smile here)...used GinaK's black and red, SU's grey...embossed the sentiment and mounted on nesties! a CAS card for sure!

well, that clear stuff really wore me out!
have a great weekend, will be back...Lord willing, Sunday night!
Blessings to you,

I haven't tried making any clear cards, so I'll take your word on how hard it is to work with. I do love how your second card turned out though! Looks great with the silver embossed on the red and framed in black. :)

Sorry the clear card gave you such a rough time - I've never tried it - think I'll just learn from your experience and not. Both cards are great, even though the first was such a pain. :)

Oh man chicky! what kind did you use? I use PTI clear cardstock. I heard it's the only way to go as it's the heaviest. I just scored it with my scorpal and then creased it with my bone folder. I used stazon for mine too and I had no problem. Hmmmm.....here's where I read some tips http://michellewooderson.blogspot.com/2009/05/clear-cardstock-stamping.html

Well your second card came out beautifully, Linda. Clear card stock, some type of acetate? I'll stay away from that for sure, if it involves peeling and sticky. Regular acetate is ok. Good luck finding help. LOL

this post just made me laugh, sorry about your troubles with the clear card stock. You are braver than me to even try it. I watched someone at a crop struggle with it so I never touched it! Your cards still look very nice!

Bless your heart! You gave it more of a go than I would have...that stuff sounds aweful to deal with and I hope someone can give some tips because clear stuff always seems to frustrate!
