Friends "Stick" Together Card

Hola,

Tami with you today on the Clear Scraps Blog to share a fun with you.

With most folks "sheltering at home", frequent contact with friends is probably lacking at this time. Sure we can text, keep up on social media, even video chat --- but how about good old snail mail? How excited would you be to get a card from a friend? So why not make a few cards and send them out to your friends to give the gift of friendship with a little touch of surprise. Bet you'd make their day!

This card is super easy to make thanks to the Clear Scraps Cactus Pots 6 X6 Stencil...

Clear_scraps_cactus_card_stencil_alcohol_ink

I used alcohol inks on glossy paper to make my "printed" papers for the cactus, pots and dirt mound. Then I traced around the cactus and pot elements with a black permanent pen and cut them out. I cut a freeform shape to set my pots on. And the background was made by inking the Chevron 6 X 6 Stencil with a blue alcohol ink; I stenciled the pattern one way, then flipped the stencil and inked again to create the pattern.

This card would also be quick to make in multiples. Just make more alcohol inked "printed" papers in the different colors, then trace and cut out the pieces.

If you'd like to see how I made this card step-by-step, please view this short video...

the 6" Zinnia stencil, is brand new!  It's so pretty, and

easy to use too!  I painted the wood pallet with white

and gray acrylic paint, then after it dried, I taped down

Hello Friend Cards by Steph

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today showcasing the Fancy Butterflies Chipboard Embellishments. 

Butterflies-clearscraps-1-steph-ackerman

The chipboard butterflies are perfect for all your  projects, but I wanted to use them on some much needed cards.

Butterflies-clearscraps-91-steph-ackerman

Using an assortment of inks, I colored the butterflies then added embossing powder to give them a bit of shine.

Butterflies-clearscraps-7-steph-ackerman

Using spritzed papers from my stash, I placed the 6" Post/Flowers Stencil on top, then used assorted inks to add color.

Butterflies-clearscraps-8-steph-ackerman

Removing and realigning the stencil, I added a 3rd flower.  For shine, I added embossing powder and heat set.

Butterflies-clearscraps-6-steph-ackerman

The stenciled panel was matted with green cardstock, then added to a yellow card.

Butterflies-clearscraps-5-steph-ackerman

The largest butterfly was added to the card at it's body only.  I let the wings stay free, so it appears the butterfly is flying.  A stamped phrase was then added to the corner of the card with pop dots for dimension.

Butterflies-clearscraps-9-steph-ackerman

My second card is also a spritzed panel that was embossed and die cut.

Butterflies-clearscraps-2-steph-ackerman

A double row of cattails was added to the bottom of the card.  The panel was then matted with blue cardstock and added to the card.  A stamped phrase was then added to the corner of the card with pop dots for dimension.

Cupcake Medium DIY Pallet Shape

Hello everyone! It's Jennifer here today to share a fun little home decor project I  created using one of the Medium DIY Pallet Shapes. These are the perfect size for gifts or to display a favorite photo as I  did. I'm going to show you how I  decorated the Cupcake Medium DIY Pallet Shape and Smile Mini Shaker Shape.  

Clear_Scraps_Cupcake_Medium_DIY_Pallet

I  started by measuring each slat of the pallet so I  would know how big to cut the strips of patterned paper.  I  adhered each with my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive and then trimmed excess paper with my x-acto knife and healing mat. I  then used a sanding tool to smooth any edges.  I  also covered the chipboard base of the Smile Mini Shaker with patterned paper and repeated the same steps. 

Clear_Scraps_Cupcake_Medium_DIY_Pallet2

I  painted the top chipboard frame and the edges of the middle two frames of the shaker with Distress Paint in speckled egg.  I  set aside to dry to begin to assemble my shaker. 

Clear_Scraps_Cupcake_Medium_DIY_Pallet3

You can see here I  adhered the shaker at the bottom of my photo allowing it to hang off the pallet.  I  added some tiny colored sequin shapes to each letter before adhering the acrylic piece.  

Clear_Scraps_Cupcake_Medium_DIY_Pallet4

I  wanted my shaker to be the focal point of the pallet so I  added a few die cuts and stickers from the collection I   used.  You can also spy a few enamel dots to accent. 

Clear_Scraps_Cupcake_Medium_DIY_Pallet5

I  used the same blue paint to line the edges of the pallet as well to give it a finished look. 

Clear_Scraps_Cupcake_Medium_DIY_Pallet6

Thank you for reading! Hope this inspires you to do some creating with one of the Clear Scraps DIY Pallet Shapes! Have a great day!

C1A33E16-3202-4181-B327-214522211DAF

I used several different products from Clear Scraps on this project...

I started with the Scallop Jumbo Wood Tag as the base, then rounded up 6 X 6 Fireworks Splash Stencil, Lower Case ABC Stencils, Stars Chipboard Embellishment and 2 PC Wood Stars

I then grabbed some white paint, pigment ink, embossing powder, washi tape, glue and a few tools and I was set!

Here is a short video that shows you how to make this project yourself...

Girl Mouse Mini Shaker Layout

Hello and happy July! It's Jennifer here to share a layout I  created with one of the Mini Shaker Shapes that were released this past January! However 14 new designs were just debuted this past week so be sure to check them out!  If you are a fan of all things Disney then you will love the Girl Mouse Mini Shaker!  I  used it as the main accent on my layout from our trip to WDW in 2018.  

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout

I'm going to show you how I   assembled my shaker!  I  began by painting the top frame as well as the edges of the middle two frames with black acrylic ink (I  always adhere my middle frames together before painting).  

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout2

While allowing my paint to dry, I  selected a background patterned paper to adhere to my chipboard base. I  used my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive and then trimmed away excess paper with scissors. Using an x-acto knife and sanding tool helps to smooth out any rough edges.  

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout3

Again using my Beacon Adhesive, I  adhered the two middle chipboard frames to the base.  I  was then ready to add sequins to the center of my shaker; it helps to not add too much as well as try to keep them centered so they do not end up glued to the sides. 

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout4

Next, I  used adhesive around the chipboard to place the acrylic piece followed by the top chipboard frame. I  then added a light coat of black acrylic paint around the edges of my shaker to give it a finished look. 

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout5

I  glued my shaker with the Beacon Adhesive to ensure a secure hold.  

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout6

You can see I  added sticker and chipboard embellishments around my shaker to accent. 

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout7

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout8

I  also added a cute sticker banner to the top right corner and stitched through with my sewing machine.

Mini Shaker Mason Jar Card

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Mason_Jar_Card_1

Hello crafty friends... Helen is here. Have you seen all the projects from the team this month teaming up with the TapeRunner team? I hope you have becuase they all are amazing!

And today is my turn. I made this mini shaker card featuring Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Mason Jar and TapeRunner.

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Mason_Jar_Card_2

I started with cutting out a piece of heavyweigth white cardstock into 4" x 10", scored and folded into a card. Then, I taped the base of the Mini Shaker Mason Jar on top of the card, with very slightly over the edge of the folded side.

I traced the mason jar shape on the card with pencil and then fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors. After that, I applied the TapeRunner all over the top of the card, added the mason jar base on it, and then pressed it to make sure it adhered well.

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Mason_Jar_Card_Steps1

I found a this pretty lace patterned scrapbook paper inside my scrap bin. I trimmed it to fit inside the jar and added on the mason jar base with the TapeRunner.

I printed the sentiment and cut it out with the scallop rectangle die, then I added it on the card with the TapeRunner.

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Mason_Jar_Card_Steps2

Next step, I applied the TapeRunner on each layer of the mini shaker mason jar chipboard and I stacked them together.

After I added the last layer, I added some of the white glass beads inside the jar. Just enough for fun shaker, but not to much that the beads won't cover the sentiment.

I removed the clear plastic film off the acetate plastic. I applied the TapeRunner on the mason jar frame and added the acetate plastic, then I pressed it firmly to make sure it adhered well. And then I added the last layer of the shaker mason jar frame. I tell ya... this tape runner is super sticky! It holds pretty much any materials that you can find at Clear Scraps store!!!

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Mason_Jar_Card_Steps3

I tied up some natural burlap twine around the lid of the jar and secured it with the TapeRunner. I also applied some TapeRunner on the back of the 3D paper flower and on top of the twine knot. I added the flower on the card.

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Mason_Jar_Card_3

I really love how this mini shaker mason jar card turned out. It can be used as an encouragement card and the recipient can put it on their desk as little decor reminding them to shine.

I hope this project sparks an inspiration for your to create projects with Clear Scraps! Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today. Have a wonderful day!!!

Wedding Card with Basket Chipboard Embellishment Shape

Hello,

Tami here with another project featuring Clear Scraps and our cross promo company this month —-TapeRunner.

June is “the” month for weddings, and I have a perfect card for the occasion.

Earlier this month, I did a tag with a foil technique that utilized the TapeRunner. While planning out this card, I wondered if the TapeRunner would be an easy way to create a glitter background for the Chipboard Basket that I wanted to use. I tried it out an a scrap piece of cardstock and it worked beautifully! 

If you’d like to see, or review the steps to create a glitter background for the chipboard piece, please check out this post: FOIL TECHNIQUE—- the steps are the same, except that instead of applying foil over the adhesive, you apply glitter.

I painted the basket white and outlined it with a gold glitter gel pen. My card base was white cardstock and the mat was a piece of cream toned printed paper. 

I also used the TapeRunner to adhere all the pieces of the card together...

D2F8E99F-CEC5-4834-AA28-355B7E673335

I used off white paper flowers to fill the basket, and I used the TapeRunner to adhere them as well...

AE846887-AEC7-49BC-B50B-73D9EFDF93E4

I wrote the sentiment on a scrap of white cardstock using the gold gel pen and also used the pen to add centers to the flowers and to outline the edge along the printed paper.

A white and gold twine bow was the finishing touch. I love the classic look of white and ivory for weddings; there is something romantic with a touch of vintage when those colors are used together.

You & Me Wood Desktop Frame

Hello! It's Jennifer on the blog today to share one of the new Wood Desktop Frames! If you haven't had a chance to play with one of these yet, you must! They are a lot of fun to assemble and make for a unique home decor piece!  Even better as a gift!  Today, I  am featuring the You & Me Wood Desktop Frame which has a cute cut out heart frame perfect for a favorite photo!

Clear_Scraps_You&Me_Desktop_Frame

I  began by painting the word frame as well as the large base oval in black acrylic paint. I  usually opt for chalk paint but acrylic works just as well.  

Clear_Scraps_You&Me_Desktop_Frame2

While waiting for my paint to dry, I  used my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to affix patterned paper to the small base oval and heart frame.  I  cut away excess paper with scissors followed by using an x-acto knife to trim the edges. I  then used my sanding tool to smooth any rough pieces. I  also did apply a thin coat of acrylic black paint to the edges of each piece to give it a finished look. 

Clear_Scraps_You&Me_Desktop_Frame3

Next, using the 4x6 Butterfly Flock Stencil, I  lightly daubed StazOn Opaque to the front of the word frame.  

Clear_Scraps_You&Me_Desktop_Frame4

Here, you can see the end result of my technique.  Also, you can see I  adhered an additional pattern behind the "O" in the You to give extra dimension. 

Clear_Scraps_You&Me_Desktop_Frame6

Again using my Beacon Adhesive, I  adhered my heart frame as well as my photo.  I  then added some embellishments from the collection I  used to accent.

Clear_Scraps_You&Me_Desktop_Frame7

Next, I  assembled my base by lining up the openings on each oval.  I  applied adhesive to the slots on the word frame and inserted into the base. A minute is all it takes for your adhesive to be set.

Clear_Scraps_You&Me_Desktop_Frame8

Using two of my hand punches, I  added these butterflies from different patterned papers and adhered the front of my word frame. I  had some pearl accents in my stash that I  also used in the center of each butterfly.

Gears Stenciled Cards by Steph

Hi everyone, Steph here today with a set of cards using the ClearScraps 6" Gears Stencil.   This month we are partnering with Tape Runner

Gear-cards-clearscraps-93-steph-ackerman

I used the Gears Stencil with assorted inks to create backgrounds for my cards. 

Gear-cards-clearscraps-2-steph-ackerman

My first gears background uses Old Paper Distress Ink for a light effect.

Gear-cards-clearscraps-3-steph-ackerman

My second background uses Aged Mahogany Distress Ink for a rich effect.

Gear-cards-clearscraps-4-steph-ackerman

My third card uses Forest Moss Distress Ink for a darker effect.

Gear-cards-clearscraps-5-steph-ackerman

Mix up the colors to create any number of backgrounds.  Using Lawn Fawn dies, I then die cut the panels to fit my cards.  Using the Tape Runner, I adhered the stenciled panels to coordinating cardstock panels, then added them to cards.

Gear-cards-clearscraps-7-steph-ackerman

For card #1, I used Heartfelt Creations stamps to create a masculine card, fussy cutting the stamped image and adhering it to the background with brads.  Going for a birthday theme, I added Happy Birthday to the center of the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

Gear-cards-clearscraps-8-steph-ackerman

Card #2  uses the same gears stamp and a different sentiment.  It was also added to the card with brads.  The sentiment gives you a reason to look inside the card doesn't it?

Gear-cards-clearscraps-9-steph-ackerman

In this current environment, I thought this interior sentiment says it all, don't you?

Gear-cards-clearscraps-91-steph-ackerman

My final card is a little different as I wanted a friendship card.  I just added a few brads to the gears background, then added the sentiment across a piece of corrugated cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by.

Other Supplies:  Ranger Distress Ink, Lawn Fawn and Tutti Designs dies, Heartfelt Creations stamps


Clear Scraps Chipboard Embellishments -- Footprints

Hello everyone! 

Summer is right around the corner, and though vacations

might be a little different this year for some of us, I'm planning

a "staycation" playing in my craft space and scrapbooking

some vacation memories, so I can remember the quiet,

calm, and peaceful,  time at the beach.  And this month,

Clear Scraps is playing along with Tape Runner Adhesive,

it's perfect for the LO I'm sharing with you today!

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishments_Footprints(1)

This started with a blank piece of white cardstock, and I used

acrylic paint and the Clear Scraps 6" Spiral stencil.

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishments_Footprints_close up 4

I went randomly around the edges using a foam brush and

the blue acrylic paint to create my own patterned paper border.

I decided I wanted a little more of a beachy feel for the border,

so I used the foam brush to create wispy areas of color.

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishments_Footprints_close up 3

I just used the brush after I stenciled with the tiniest bit

of paint on it and brushed it on between the stenciled

shapes.  Less is definitely more when you are using the 

foam brush and paint!  In the bottom corner of the LO,

don't you love that little beach scene?

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishments_Footprints_close up 2

The umbrella and adirondack chair come in the same

set, the Beach Chair Chipboard Embellishment.   You

cut them free from the frame they come in, and then

paint, or whatever you'd like. 

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishments_Footprints_close up 1

A little sand mixed with glossy accents made the perfect

spot for the chair and umbrella to sit and finish this LO.

Want to see all the fun chipboard embellishment options?

You can find them all in the Clear Scraps Store HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

 

Supplies Used: 

Clear Scraps:  6" Spiral Stencil,

Beach Chair Chipboard Embellishment

Other:  Speckled Egg Distress Paint, orange, yellow and white

acrylic paint, Reminisce Summertime paper,

Bella Blvd alpha, enamel dots, foam tape, Tape Runner

Swirl Butterfly CAS Cards

Clear_Scraps_Swirl_Butterflies_Chipboard_Embellishments_Cards

Hello hello hello crafty friends... Helen is here! We are still teaming up with TapeRunner and today is my turn again to share my project. On these two Swirl Butterfly CAS cards, I used the Swirl Butterflies Chipboard Embellishment, 4x6 Brick Wall Stencil, and 4x6 Quarterfoil Stencil.

These cards are fun to make and not too complicated. Here are the steps:

Clear_Scraps_Swirl_Butterflies_Chipboard_Embellishments_Card_Step_01

I cut both of the Swirl Butterflies from the frame with scissors. Then, I traced one of them on the back of the yellow glitter paper with pencil. I cut out the paper with micro-tip scissors.

Clear_Scraps_Swirl_Butterflies_Chipboard_Embellishments_Card_Step_02

I applied the TapeRunner on the surface of the butterfly. This tape is super sticky and permanent. Then, carefully I lined up the cut out glitter paper on the butterfly and I pressed firmly the paper on it.

Clear_Scraps_Swirl_Butterflies_Chipboard_Embellishments_Card_Step_03

I taped the Brick Wall stencil directly on top of the white card with the purple tape (washi tape will work well too, just make sure it can be removed without tearing your card). And then, I used the blending brush to apply some of the Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the card.

Clear_Scraps_Swirl_Butterflies_Chipboard_Embellishments_Card_Step_04

I removed the stencil from the card and put it on the stamping tool to stamp the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment with the VersaFine Jet Black ink pad.

Clear_Scraps_Swirl_Butterflies_Chipboard_Embellishments_Card_Step_05

I removed the card from the stamping tool, and then I applied the TapeRunner at the back of the butterfly. I added it on top of the card.

Clear_Scraps_Swirl_Butterflies_Chipboard_Embellishments_Card_01

I added those small lines with Micron Pen and I added some of the white pearl gems on the card. 

Clear_Scraps_Swirl_Butterflies_Chipboard_Embellishments_Card_02

I used the same steps to make this second butterfly card.

For the background, I used three different color dye ink pads that I blended together using the blending brush and the Quarterfoil Stencil. 

For the butterfly, instead of adding the glitter paper on top of it, I added the orange glitter paper under the butterfly using the TapeRunner.

There are many chipboard embellishments at Clear Scraps Store that you can grab for your projects. Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today. Have wonderful day!


A Perfect Day at the Beach Greeting Card

 
 



 
Greetings!   Chris here and today I am excited to share this summery greeting card I created using Tape Runner Adhesive and Clears Scraps chipboard.  Nothing says summer more than sitting at a beach, and this card features Clear Scraps Beach Chair Chipboard Embellishment
                                                              
Start by painting the Clear Scraps Beach Chair Chipboard Embellishment as desired.  I chose white and red to coordinate with my papers.  (ignore my messy background! ) 

 I chose Simple Stories Summer papers and coordinating card stock to create the back drop for my chipboard. All paper pieces were assembled with Tape Runner Adhesive.


Adhere umbrella pole and then add chipboard pieces with foam tape over top of the pole. (add foam tape on either side of the chipboard pieces so that pole is behind the other pieces.)

 To finish your card add more paper pieces on the card inside.

 

I hope you are inspired to get creative with your Clear Scraps Supplies!


Clear Scraps Medium DIY Pallet -- You are My Anchor

Hi there everyone!  Laura here with you today to share

a fun project using one of the Clear Scraps wooden

pallets, and one of the new mini shakers!

Clear_Scraps_DIY Medium Pallet_You are My Anchor(1)

I love all things beach, and sea life, and I decorate with items like

this every summer!  It's even better when you can make your own

home decor to match your personal taste, colors, etc.  And this

is just one idea for the Square Medium DIY Pallet Shape from

Clear Scraps.  These shapes are fun to work with, and you can

choose a heart shape, a circle, a house, and so much more!  There

are even some great seasonal shapes to play with too!  You can

find all of them in the Clear Scraps store right HERE.   This one

I cut paper strips to cover, inked the edges with Distress Ink, and

then glued them down onto the slats.  You could also paint, or stain,

or?  These pallets have great versatility that you can get creative with!

The other Clear Scraps item on this project is the Anchor Mini Shaker.

Clear_Scraps_DIY Medium Pallet_You are My Anchor_close up 1

I've said it before, I LOVE these shakers!  They add so much

to any project, whether it's a LO, a card, a home decor project,

or anything!  So easy to use too, this one was just painted with

blue acrylic paint, added a few beads and sequins, and then

glue the layers together with a favorite adhesive, it's that easy!

I added a couple of pretty medallions cut out of patterned paper,

and some enamel dots for a little "bling" for a cute addition.

The top of the pallet has a little sticker tag and bit of twine.

Clear_Scraps_DIY Medium Pallet_You are My Anchor_close up 2

A couple of fun little touches to finish the project off.  Now

it's a complete piece of home decor ready to use for summer!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Life is Good Pallet by Steph

HI everyone, Steph here with a Summer themed Pallet.

Life-is-good-clearscraps-3-steph-ackerman

Using the Circle Medium DIY Pallet, I painted each slat representing a beach theme.

Life-is-good-clearscraps-1-steph-ackerman

Placing glue along the bottom edge, I added mini art stones representing sand.

Life-is-good-clearscraps-steph-ackerman

Using the Life is Good Chipboard word title, I painted it with red paint and spritzed with a pearl spray ink.

I also painted the Beach Chair chipboard embellishment with brown ink and the umbrella with beige ink.   I used glue to create veins on the umbrella and sprinkled on gold glitter.  All the chipboard embellishments were adhered to the pallet.

To finish, I created shells from Makin's Clay, painted them with gold ink and adhered them to the panel.

Thanks for stopping by.

Foil Technique with Chipboard Shape Embellishments

Hiya,

Tami here today to share a fun technique using both Clear Scraps and our cross promo company this month —- TapeRunner

Bling is all the rage in fashion, decor and crafts, and foil is among the hottest ways to get this look.

You can easily add foil to your papercraft or mixed media project using TapeRunner and some transfer foil...

I thought that the Fancy Butterfly Chipboard Shape would look gorgeous with a foil underlay to fill in the wings.

Cut the shape from the chipboard frame...

3279E81D-F6C1-4AD9-BB57-79ABF8202B04

Trace around the butterfly shape on a piece of black cardstock...

E011FA3A-C849-4DB7-A7B7-EBA2D0AC7B09

Use the TapeRunner to fill in the shape with horizontal lines of adhesive...

4F48B0BC-62DC-4DA5-B181-CD070F6A8FE7

Lay a sheet of foil transfer paper over the adhesive and rub with your finger to transfer the foil...

B2B1BD22-B689-48C2-9949-81806FB18675

Pull up the foil sheet and tada... 

EE8B4551-3F24-48C3-8CE1-CBF319DE8B9B

Cut out the butterfly (you may have to retrace around the butterfly if you obliterated your first tracing like I did)...

B9B4E492-C363-4B12-9A73-DD26BE0C199D

Paint your butterfly - I used silver paint - then apply adhesive to the body and outer edges of the wings using the TapeRunner to adhere it over the foiled cardstock piece...

E55F073F-E08F-450F-9B4E-5C71A78BF641

I used the butterfly to embellish one of the acrylic tags Acrylic Tag Album. I painted the back of the tag with light blue, white and silver paint. I added a few scattered drops of each on the tag, then brushed horizontally to cover the tag, being careful not to overblend them. 

On the front of the tag, I used the Butterfly Stock Stencil with silver modeling paste; this combined with painting on the back of the tag, helps to add dimension.

If you’d like to see more about that technique, please view this post: Mixed Media Acrylic Tag, which describes this technique and includes a short video.

Rub-on sentiments and some silver ribbon complete the tag...

I hope this project has given an idea of a new way to use TapeRunner.

Home Decor with Large Chipboard Embellishments

Hello friends and happy Friday! Hope this finds you well! Jennifer here to share a project I  created with some of the new Large Chipboard Embellishments that were debuted this past January.  For my base, I  used the 12x10 Rectangle Medium DIY Pallet Shape that I covered with chalk paint in grey.  Chalk paint works wonderfully on the birch wood as it dries quickly and you do not need to prime the wood. 

Clear_Scraps_Hello_Pallet3

We are teaming up with TapeRunner this month and I  used my adhesive to adhere different patterned papers to the Hello Large Chipboard Embellishment.  I  cut away excess paper with scissors as well as used an x-acto knife and sanding tool to smooth my edges.  I  also added a thin coat of chalk paint in cream to the edges of each letter to help them stand out.

I  also used the same color chalk paint on the Vintage Truck Large Chipboard Embellishment.  Once dry, I  applied a light coat of crackle effect to the surface and allowed ample time for it to set.  I  then went over the surface with more chalk paint this time being in pink!

Here, you can see a close up shot of the finished effect!

Showing the Large Chipboard letters adhered to my pallet! You can see that adding the paint to the edges of the letters helps them stand out even more.

Using two cut files from my Silhouette, I  adhered these rolled flowers and leaves to the bed of the truck.  From my stash, I  added buttons and enamel dots to the center of each flower.
