Tip of the Week: Make Your Own Rub-On Sentiments!

This week's CardMonkey Tip of the Week features how to make your own rub-on sentiments for your cards and scrapbook layouts.  Watch the video and you'll see why you'll want to comment here on the blog for a chance to win BLOG CANDY ...

When you watch the video, you'll learn that I use overhead transparencies to make my own rub-on sentiments for cards.  If you are (or become) a follower, and leave a comment below, I'll put you in a drawing to receive five (5) sheets of overhead transparencies to try this technique on your own.  These sheets are costly -- at least *I* think they are -- so you'll want to win this just to try this technique for yourself!

Winner will be announced on Wednesday, March 9, so post comments before then, please.  Update:  The winner has been announced!  You are free to comment, but the blog candy has been awarded.  Thank you, and congratulations LISA at Lisa's Creative Niche.

Happy Scrappin'

Wow! This is so exciting, and so perfect for me right now, I love using rubons on my actual material scrapbooks, and I have been looking everywhere for little boy type rubons to put on my little one's books that I have done but I haven't found any that I really like yet, this would work perfect for me (fingers crossed) to make my own! Thank you sooooo much for the chance!

Ellen you read my mind. I was thinking about doing a video on how to do this. You did great so I will leave it to you. I absolutly LOVE that card it's adorable. I actually got some of the transparency paper at my Joann's probably a yr ago it was 12.99 (-40%) for 6 sheets of 12x12. It was Scotch brand. Don't know if they still have it but worth a shot not that you will need any for the rest of your life...lol 50 sheets wow! But maybe some of your followers might want to check there. I will look next time I go and see if they still have it or maybe scotch online www.scotchbrand.com.

Awesome Ellen, cute card too! I've seen this done with white or black gel pens writing onto wax paper & then ironing onto fabric to cover an album or book. I like this since I'm more of a card maker than scrapbooker.
Already a follower & thanks for the chance to win.

Very pretty card. Great idea for those cards already made. I wonder if I can even do it with my printer...it has pigment ink. I will have to give it a try sometime.

This is really a great idea. A very good tutorial I guess when you do this you fill the entire sheet not to waste the transpariecy. Am I correct that the same spot is not reusable ?
