Customize Window Cling Vinyl for a Mason Jar with StazOn

As the leaves turn color, they not only mark the return of Fall, they also mark the time for crafters to start their Holiday makes or gifts. One of my makes this year is a hand-stamped jar to fill with home-made bath salts. Stamping on such a curved surface can be a difficult task. One way to turn this challenging task into an easy one is to use StazOn ink to stamp on Window Cling Vinyl, it makes decorating a jar with a hand-stamped image, a breeze!

Hello friends! Today, I would like to share with you a quick and easy way to create an inspiring card with clear Vertigo Sheets and VersaFine Clair.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

If you are not familiar with Vertigo Sheets it is a plastic product from Imagine that adds unique depth to cards and mixed media projects. It comes in different designs and you can create visual effects with these depending on the design and colors of ink that you use. You can also stamp over the sheets, die cut and emboss it.


Step 2

To make my card, I used a strip of Vertigo Taffeta design, that is the most simple design and VersaFine Clair ink in three different colors: Verdant, Shady Lane and Green Oasis. I applied the ink over the Vertigo Piece using a sponge or dauber and let the ink dry naturally.

I stamped with VersaFine Clair Nocturne the images that I wanted over the strip and also let the strip dry well before pasting it over my card base. I used Tear It Tape to paste the decorated layer over my card and finalized it by stamping a sentiment from the Boss Babe stamp set of Joy Clair with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink. The photos don’t do justice to this card because of the Vertigo’s refracting. In person it is really clear and lovely!
