Georgia Peach Birthday

The idea for this card came from gardenmom's card on Splitcoast Stampers.  While it isn't a 100% CASE, my modifications are really only because of the supplies I have available to me.  I didn't try the shower door embossing.  I just ran my card stock through my Big Shot with a square of box board to create the impression on the base, which is hard to see in the photo.  I cut my "Birthday Wishes" into two pieces as it is much more versatile that way.  This is the first and only clear mount Stampin' Up set that I own.  I can't say that I'm thrilled with them.  I find they don't always cling to the acrylic block.  Does anybody have any suggest for this problem?

Thanks for looking,

Great colors. I have some of this paper left, I guess I'll have to CASE. I love the clear stamps. Push the block and the stamp together for a better cling hold. Rub the block on your pant leg to make sure it is super clean then do the above. I don;t have any problems. I think SU has some "rules" for use too. A gentle rub for cleaning works fine.

Great card Kim!!
I, too, wasn't a huge fan of the SU clear stamps. One thing I read on SCS is to not place the stickers onto the foam - works fabulous. Push down for a count of five when attaching the stamp to the block.
Also, as Jeanette mentioned, make sure your block is super clean without finger prints...etc. Wash with Sunlight Dish Detergent and use the clear block cleaning cloth found on page 205 of the new cattie. I hope that helps. Jenn:)
