Hello! I cannot believe its February already! That does mean another round of tags from our design team! I have to admit that I love Valentine themed paper and embellishments! :) So today I'm sharing my tag of the month!
Did you know you can use spray paint on your acrylic? Many of our designers love to utilize their favorite colors of spray paint on their tags or other Clear Scraps projects! Here, I used gold foil spray; it takes one coat and goes on beautifully!
Once my paint was dry, I applied clear embossing ink, red glitter embossing powder and used my heat gun to set.
Before adding my papers and embellishment to my tag, I wanted to add a background. At first I thought about using modeling paste but then remembered that I had the coordinating stamp set to the paper line I was using! StazOn inks are highly recommended to use on acrylic because they are fast drying. I used my black StazOn with two of the sentiments and did some random stamping on my tag (opposite of what side I applied my paint).
Now I was ready to start adding papers and my embellishments! I love to layer so sometimes its just a matter of experimenting to see what looks good! If a more simple look is your style that's ok...there is no wrong way to create!
Here is a close up of the embossed chipboard! I had a bit of tough time with my embossing ink and had to go back and re-do some spots. Overall, I love how it turned out!
Also, showing the close up of the stamping; I think the black and gold gives some contrast to the reds and pinks!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope this inspires you to do some creating of your own with Clear Scraps acrylic! Sometimes we can be surprised by what we come up with! Have a wonderful day!
Today, I am sharing myJanuary tag and it is based off my One Little Word for the year. My word this year is HAPPY.
Now, it may be hard to see, and I forgot to take a step by step photo, but for the base of the tag I used the brand spanking New Heart Layer Stencil. I LOVE it! You can kind of see the hearts behind the Clear Scraps Flourish embellishment below.
I am focusing on being happy this year, which is why I chose to repeat the word Happy on this tag.
Here's to a HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY 2017!

Hi everyone! Nancy here today to share my tag for January. This month I made it with a simple chipboard tag from the tag album and tag box set.
Although we don't get much snow here in California, a girl can dream. Speaking of dreaming...have you seen all the gorgeous goodies coming out of CHA? Clear Scraps has lots of fun, new items. Be sure to check them out.
Hello and happy 2017! We are excited to continue to share our "Tag of the Month" with you and hope that you will be inspired to create with many of the awesome Clear Scrap products! Today, I'm sharing a quick and easy technique to add some sparkle to your chipboard!
First, I started by using painting the edges of one of the chipboard tags with white acrylic paint. I then fit and layered pieces of patterned paper from a fun winter collection and adhered to the front of my tag.
To embellish my tag, I used the Nordic Snowflake Chipboard Embellishments. I started my painting them with the same white acrylic paint. Once dry, I applied the painted surface directly to the embossing pad and added a fun light blue glitter embossing powder. After removing the excess powder, apply heat directly to set.
Here is a close up of one of the snowflakes! I added a cute color coordinating button to the center to add some dimension!
I used the larger snowflake as my "base" to add stickers and additional buttons; I love how it turned out! I finished my tag by adding some ribbon to tie at the top!
Thank you for stopping by! The Clear Scraps shop has a large variety of chipboard shapes to choose from! And keep watching the blog for projects featuring new Clear Scraps products!
Have a great day!
