October Ghost Tag

Hi, Clear Scraps friends! Today I have my October tag to share with you and am once again using leftovers from the October CME Kit to create it.

Oct2017Tag_LeahCrowe

For my tag, I added in paper and stickers from the October CME kit. I then put together this adorable Ghost shaker, who is more like an Autumn cutie instead of a spooky fella. I love the glamour sequins that Clear Scraps offers.

I stamped a sentiment on the acrylic and realized that the placement is a bit goofy. I'm going to correct that and can do so easily by using an alcohol base remover such as a stamp cleaner or even nail polish remover to remove the Stazon ink from the acrylic.

Fall Tag album 1

I used alcohol ink in butterscotch and orange am dropped this on the acyclic pieces to give the fall color to them. I also used a collection from Echo Park -Hello Fall.

Below is a peek of the inside pages of the album.

A Lovely Little Box

Hi everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you this cute little box I made with the Clear Letter Box.  I think one of my favorite things to make are the boxes.  When things are put into a box I just feels so clean and organized.   And with these acrylic boxes, you can decorate them to suit your space.  Mine?  I think I am going to use it to hold my growing "fancy" pen collection.

The box is simple to assemble.  I chose to decorate each panel with patterned paper before assembly.  But you could paint the panels, use your favorite mixed media techniques, etc.

Thanks for stopping by.

October Tag with Jennifer

Hello! I can't believe its October already! Time flies but I'm definitely excited for this month as Halloween is one of my favorite holidays!   Today, I'm sharing my spooky-themed tag I created using one of the acrylic tags from the Acrylic Tag Album and a Ghost Chipboard Embellishment!  

Clear_Scraps_October_tag

I started with inking my acrylic with Ranger Alcohol Ink in Pitch Black.  Alcohol ink is the go-to when it comes to applying color to Clear Scraps acrylic because 1) it is solvent based and the color will "stick" and 2) it dries fast!

Did you know you can apply spray paint to your acrylic? I used Krylon's Marbled Spray in Gold. It gives my tag a "spider web" feel! I set it aside to dry so I could work on my Chipboard Ghost!

Our fearless leader, Susan, showed me the loveliness that is Inka Gold! Here, I used Inka Gold in Pewter to color my ghost.  Inka Gold is like a paste/mousse that is waxed based and can be applied to chipboard or paper.   And the more you rub the ink results in extra shimmer!  I used a patterned paper to back the eyes in my ghost before adhering him to the front of my tag.

I used a rosette die and bakers twine to set my Chipboard Ghost as well as added a decorative pin and stamped "Boo!".  I also added in some orange and black decorative buttons to finish.

And even more fun? I took this Printer Tray and used all my leftover papers and goodies from the Creating Made Easy October 2017 Kit (by Clear Scraps) to create this project! It just goes to show how far these kits really go in creating projects.

The CME October Kit came with the Swirl Pumpkin Stencil which I used on the middle window, and the Acrylic Bats of course you can see I used the stencil on that little guy as well. 

Not only did I get my 3 projects out of this kit, but also I made 3 cards, and took this Clear Scraps Printer Tray and created it as well. So much fun with Authentique and other goodies. 

I hope you enjoyed my project today, it was fun and I can't wait to hang it up!

Happy Crafting friends,

The mini Bat shaker and Spooky Sequins are the perfect pairings!

Word Stencils with Clear Scraps~

Hi, Connie here with a really fun project, using the word stencils, by Clear Scraps.  I used the "Thankful" word stencil and applied it to an old board, to use on a fall wreath project.  It was easy and looks amazing!!! All you need is a board, acrylic paint, sand paper and the stencil.  Simple, right?

Clear scraps_word stencil_c. mercer

The sign board is painted with green acrylic paint, then sanded ( you can seal with a mat sealer, if you like) and then stenciled with off white acrylic paint.  I use makeup sponges to apply the paint.  I dab off and then apply to the stencil.  Another tip is to tape the stencil in place using painters tape.  Can be bad if the stencil is moving around on you. After the board is painted and the stencil work is complete, sand lightly to give the sign a vintage look and feel.  Wipe with a dry rag.  This would be the time to seal the sign if you are hanging it outside.

When using it in a wreath, holes will need to be drilled on both sides of the sign so it can be attached with wire to the wreath.  Sounds hard but it is not.   Looking forward to hanging it on my backdoor.  I would love to have a sign for every season and then make a wreath using it.  Got to make that happen~

Clear scraps_word stencil3_c.mercer
