I don't have a Xyron or the cold laminate but I'll be watching what everyone else makes!

BadSherry 06-19-2006 04:18 AM

we were still chatting

ematson 06-19-2006 04:19 AM

Can't wait to try this! I saw a sample last week and put it on my list of things to try. Thanks for the great challenge!

cheddar30 06-19-2006 04:19 AM

you can also do this with the wide clear packing tape...

Jeanne S 06-19-2006 04:21 AM

Looks fun. Just need to see if cartridge for my Xyron has anything left.

DawnL 06-19-2006 04:21 AM

Heather.. yeah, clear packing tape works... I just did one recently....
thanks Beth... ;)

SheStampsHeCamps 06-19-2006 04:22 AM

can't we just use Transparancy??
look at this (AWESOME) shaker by Jami (looks similar) and, read her description. Is this the same idea??

Hmmmm.... sorry, after READING (duh) the web site, I see it is totally different!
booo hoooo I don't have any laminate sheets.... guess I'll have to try it with the CHEAP Dollar store wide clear tape....

BadSherry 06-19-2006 04:27 AM

So I have transparancies and self-laminate sheets but no xyron -- what do you do then? I am so confused!!!!!!!!!

Jeanne S 06-19-2006 04:28 AM

How do you do it with packing tape?

You can also use clear contact paper! We used to do this as kids with magazine images and make our own slides.

sorry.... I jumped to conclusions! I see Jami's card is a different technique.... today's challenge truly does need something 'sticky' behind the image so the printed paper sticks. I need to SLOW down and READ things first!
again... sorry!!!
but, I saw that shaker made by Jami last week... fell in love with the idea, and had it waiting in my favorites....

hmmm.... not sure.... do you have any black Fabrico? Any 'permanant' black ink??

Jerri Kay 06-19-2006 04:30 AM

Drats! I'm still at the beach and can't play. I can't wait to get home and try this. Thanks so much for posting both sets of instructions and for such a fun looking challenge. Wow, I'm excited about this one!

bensarmom 06-19-2006 04:30 AM

Beth, Looks like fun.......I'm off to see what I can do. Thanks for another great challenge.

Jeanne S 06-19-2006 04:36 AM

No Xyron. Do you just stamp directly on the clear contact paper or packing tape?

Jeanne S 06-19-2006 04:41 AM

I'm good.....found and extra cartridge.........hehe

Pinky 06-19-2006 04:48 AM

Jerri, I have the xyron and it is the larger one. If you get one, I suggest getting the 5.5 inch one as it is more versatile. I used mine more w/scrapping, but I have used it w/stamping as well.

I cannot wait to try this, but I will be gone most of the day....:confused: I will try one tonight. Thanks for hosting this and this sounds like a nifty idea.

Julia S 06-19-2006 04:51 AM

I love this technique but don't have time to play. I just made one for June's Dirty Dozen gallery so if you have a membership...here is mine...

Thanks Pinky,

I went out on the internet and read up on xyron. I think I'm going to get the 5.5 as you suggested. Is it good for cardmaking. Can I run an image or mat through and then stick on the card?

justampin 06-19-2006 05:01 AM

Have a xyron but only the adhesive not laminate. Looked at the samples, it seems you can see through them to the image underneath the flowers. Question is, if you use pattern paper how can that be?

Heather, from what I can tell, once you gently rub the paper off, only the ink stays on the laminate, and judging from what I read, the harder you rub, the more of the ink you rub off. So I think you have to be very careful in rubbing consistently so that you don't have areas that are clearer than others.

justampin 06-19-2006 05:09 AM

Thanks Jerri, now it's clearer in my mind. Now to find the time and the packing tape because that's all I've got to work with right now.

Hmmmm... that's true! I think you just saved me from wasting time!! I was just about to try this with cheap (very thin) packing tape! I don't think it'll work.
maybe you wet it enough to pull some of the paper off the laminate.... but leave the image on?
OK... I'm gonna do everyone a favor... and LEAVE!! tee hee.... I am sure I'm adding to the confusion! Going back to the ORIGINAL web site and READ EVERY word of it to see if I think I can improvise with anything I have on hand here.

I love doing the packing tape transfers using magazine images. In case anyone needs the instructions, here they are: http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_paper_cr...856795,00.html

Heather, remember to soak it in water a few minutes before rubbing the paper off. I forgot to mention that earlier.

lacyquilter 06-19-2006 05:27 AM

Very cool technique, Beth. I saw this on HA & have been meaning to try it. Thanks.

For those of you who are still confused........

You need either clear packing tape OR laminate sheet OR transparency sheet and xyron. Not all of them. You are stamping on the non-sticky side; sticking your patterned paper to the sticky side; THEN you wet it & rub off the paper that you just stuck on. What you are left with is the clear stamped piece with just ink on the sticky side (the paper is rubbed off leaving only the design under your stamp). Then you stick this on your card. Hope that makes it clear.

I'm off to play.

Sonia, The only sub for StazOn that I can think of, would be to pick a very simple image and trace it with a sharpie. The important thing is that the ink will stay on the transparency. Julia S. has done this with Sharpie: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...00&ppuser=9338 and someone has been doing Bud Basics with a sharpie or a pigment liner, but I couldn't find it to show you.

Maybe you could try embossing in black??! Just be careful with the heat and the transparency.

Julia S 06-19-2006 05:39 AM

Just my two cents...I tried the cold laminate method while checking out the technique a few weeks ago and either the laminate I bought wasn't great or it just doesn't work as well as the acetate/xyron way. Packing tape will also work but the images will not be a rigid.

HTH,

That should work...so would free-handing with the sharpie. You really should put Stazon on your next order....there are so many great things you can do with it.
