Time is Transparent

Hi All My Blogger Friends,

Today I have a quick post for you - hope you enjoy.

I wanted to get this project posted to enter in two challenges this week.  One at
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where they are asking for "Transparent".  The second one is for Frilly and Funkie where they are asking for "Time After Time", anything time related.   I got the project assembled in pretty short order as I knew what I wanted to do.  No problem.  The real challenge came when it was time to photograph it.  After several unsuccessful tries Mac and I finally got it by up-lighting it.

I started out with a Sizzix Pro Die called Card, Double Accordion #658903.
As you can see, I made the entire thing out of clear acrylic and then embossed it with two of the Tim Holtz Texture Fades, clocks and gears.  The insert for the die was perfect for the word "Time".  I then glued on some clock-ish stuff from my stash.

Hope you make TIME for crafting today,


  1. What a beautiful card - your embossed acrylic looks like cut glass with the light falling on it. Thanks for joining us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  2. This is stunning!! Love the great shape of this card and all the embossing. It looks absolutely wonderful. The clock embellishments are perfect. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

  3. Wow, Sandy! Your accordion card is 'clearly' AMAZING! It looks like it is made from crystal! I am so impressed with your creativity and results. Thank you so much for sharing it with us at the Frilly and Funky Challenge!

  5. I can imagine how difficult it was to photograph this but the end result is fabulous. I love the use of the clear acrylic and all the wonderful clocks. Thanks for joining us at Frilly and Funkie.

  6. Wow, what a cool and unique piece of art. I love embossing acrylic but I never thought of making something totally from it. Absolutely brilliant. So great to have you joining in the fun with us over at Frilly and Funkiie!
