Measuring Up!!

at Bugaboo Stamps

I've been playing with clear acetate sheets.  I changed image to svg in SCAL.  I cut the measuring cup on acetate and also cut the same shape into the card and glued the clear cup onto the front.  Her head is on the outside and her body is on the inside to give the effect of her inside the measuring cup.  I guess this is the kind of card that you have to see in person to get the full effect.  I also used the spoons in Afternoon at Auntie Elaine's set from SVGCuts.  I use this set SO MUCH!!!

Head over to Catch The Bug Blog to see what other delight cards were made from this cutie set.

  1. I just finished looking at the new stamps & they are so cute. Using the acetate was a great idea & I love the sweet little cookie button. Are the spoons cut out of silver metallic?
    P.S.>Hope you have a better day today.

  2. Cely, this is so cool. I have been trying to figure out how you did this all week when I see it in the file over at Bug. Thanks for the deets and the wonderful card.

  3. How clever! The acetate works perfectly. I love the cookie button too. Adds a nice finishing touch.

  4. I am totally loving this digis - to - SVG's you've been doing and plan to do a little CASE-ing, just so ya know! (not your work, just the IDEA of converting digis to svg's...)

    Can you really "CASE" an IDEA?? Maybe Scrap-lift is a better word? (-: LOL!!

    You've chosen the perfect images for it, too!
    Using the acetate is just creative GENIUS!! How CUTE with her head poking out of the cup!!
    Fabulous as always!!!

  5. I like how you worked in the acetate. I haven't tried it yet. You used it to great effect. Love the layering and your added details of the spoons and cookie button. ;- )

  6. Cely--can you come visit me? You so need to teach me to do more with my SCAL--and you seem like the perfect teacher. This card is adorable!!!!!

  7. Delightful card Cely, I keep saying I will try working with acetate one of these days..... :o)

  9. Hi Cely!!!!!!!! Oh another awesome creation!! I love it! The spoons are the perfect embellie here! Deeeeeelish! Very creative :-)

  10. How great...this would be so fun to open up...what a surprise!!!
