Window Sheet Techniques

I know, I'm a little late but techniqually it is still Saturday - here anyway! As promised, here is a list of the techniques that I've come up with for window sheets. I'm sure there are a lot more but this is what I have so far. If you are a fan on Facebook, you've seen the little sheet of samples that I did up using most of these techniques.

If you are looking for some uses for your window sheets here are a few:
  • Paint window sheet with acrylic paint. Once dry, flip it over and apply a rub-on to the front.
  • Stamp an outline image using Staz On, flip it over and apply color using an old blender pen and craft refills. This will not dry so you will need to sprinkle with embossing powder and carefully heat set.
  • Use paper piercing tool to create a pattern. Using linen thread or embroidery floss, stitch the pattern.
  • Use your Big Shot with Bigz or XL Bigs dies to cut out images.
  • Ink edges using craft ink.
  • Stamp on window sheets using a solvent ink like Staz On to create a custom patterned over/underlay for your project.
  • Stamp an outline image with Staz On. Flip over. Use crystal effects (CE) and fill in image, trying to stay in the lines. Sprinkle with glitter. This works well with more than one color as well, simply work in stages. Apply CE to where you'd like your first color, sprinkle with glitter. Wipe off excess and repeat with second color.
  • Use your heat tool to carefully heat heavy weight window sheet. This softens it and makes it easy to mold. Great to give dimension to flowers.
  • Use medium weight window sheets and your punches.
  • Use medium weight window sheets with Texturz plates for subtle dimension. To make this stand out a bit more use sanding blocks or rub with craft ink.
  • Use craft ink or VersaMark to stamp image and then emboss.

Have fun playing!
