Default Clear cardstock

Does anyone have a source for clear cardstock reasonably priced? I got some at Michaels that came in a pad, I went back to get more and the place on the rack where it was has been replaced with another product. Can't find it anywhere in the store.
Thanks a bunch!
Wanda

I buy mine from Flourishes - http://rjnx9.ut464.servertrust.com/C...K_p/ccc001.htm. It's fabulous quality, so any time I am ordering stamps from them I'll get a pack at the same time, although they don't always have it in stock.

Pam -

You can use acetate/clear cardstock as your card base. Use it as layers. However you can imagine.

Here's a search for 'acetate card' here in the SCS galleries:

OK, sorry to take this a little off topic, but has anyone successfully heat embossed on clear cardstock? I wondering if you are really careful with the heat gun if it can work.

I haven't tried to use heat with it. So I am not sure.

JudiKins makes an embossable "window plastic" - it's like acetate but can withstand the heat.

I buy mine from Flourishes.org like mentioned above.

Papertrey also has some:
Papertrey Ink - Clearly Creative Cardstock

And Stampin' Up! does too I think. I have the impression that Stampin' Up!'s comes in 12x12 too.

You can also stamp on clear cardstock and then QUICKLY flip it onto paper to make a (somewhat blurrier) reverse stamp image. This is useful for making reflections in water.

It's not actually cardstock; it's acetate. Some companies just call it "cardstock." Cardstock is a paper product; acetate is a type of plastic. I've used the Judikins Embossable Window Plastic, and it works very well.

Can you buy the Judikins embossable window plastic on line.

Yes. Amazon.com has the Judikins, but it's a very large package. Scrapbook.com has another brand, but it is embossable window plastic. I think you can also buy it from the Judikins website.

I have embossed successfully on Graffix acetate, but very carefully holding the heat gun farther away and letting the powder melt slowly.

After reading the suggestions on here, I went ahead and ordered some clear card stock from Flourishes. All I can say is WOW! I am highly impressed with the quality of the card stock and the price was great! Thanks for the suggestions.

I think that you need a special heat resistant acetate. As mentioned Judikins has it.
