Mini Shaker Mason Jar Card


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.


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.


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.


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!!!


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.


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


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...


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


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!


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.  


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. 


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


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. 


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.


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.


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. 


Thank you for reading today! Hope this inspires you to do some crafting with one of Clear Scraps' home decor products! Have a great day!

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


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


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


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


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


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.


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.


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?


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


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


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:


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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


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.

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.


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


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


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.


Other Supplies:  Prima Paint, Makin's Clay, Imagine Crafts Ink

Foil Technique with Chipboard Shape Embellishments


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...


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


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


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


Pull up the foil sheet and tada... 


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


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...


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. 


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.


Thank you for stopping by the blog today! I  hope this inspires you to create some of your own DIY home decor with Clear Scraps!  Have a great day!

Clear Scraps FlipFlop Shaker--You & Me LO

Hi there everyone!!  How's everybody doing? Hopefully

finding some crafty fun time!  Laura here with you today

sharing a LO using one of the new Clear Scraps Shakers!

Clear_Scraps_FlipFlop Shaker_You  Me & the Sea LO

How adorable are those little flip flops?!!  There are so many

cute new shakers that just came out from Clear Scraps, and

there are even more due out soon!  So excited!  If you've

never played with their shakers before, give them a try!

You can paint them, ink them, stamp on them and so much

more!  And then you can fill them with your favorite sequins,

or beads, I was wishing I had some cute would that

be in the flip flops?!!  You can find the flip flops in the Clear

Scraps store HERE.  If you want to peruse ALL of the new

shakers you can look HERE.  And make sure to check back in the

next few weeks, because there are a lot of new ones coming soon!

Here's a little bit of a closer view, where you can see on this

particular shaker, I used 2 different colors of acrylic paint,

Clear_Scraps_FlipFlop Shaker_You  Me & the Sea LO cose up 1

I generally paint all the outer edges using a foam applicator,

then I go back with a brush to do the more detailed work on

the straps of the flip flops.  You could make them all one color

of course, I just like the contrast, and it brings in 2 different

colors from the papers I used for this scrapbook page.  I added

some beads and some sequins (I like to mix it up!) and a few

stickers on top of the flip flops using some foam tape.

I kept the other embellishments on this page light to keep

the adorable flip flop shaker as the definitely the star!

Peace Tall and Slim Card

Hello crafty friends! Helen is here. I hope you've seen the amazing projects from my teammates for our cross promo with TapeRunner! And today is my turn. I made this Peace tall and slim card using the Fern Branch Chipboard Shape Embellishment and 6" Fruit of the Spirit Stencil.


I cut out the tall and slim card base using Silhouette Cameo 3. For the background mat, I trimmed a piece of scrapbook paper into 3" x 8 7/8" and then I distressed one edge of the paper with my distresser tool (if you don't have this tool, you can also use scissors, but be very careful!). I added the paper on the card with the TapeRunner.


I taped the 6" Fruits of the Spirit Stencil on the card using painter tape. I also taped around the word and then using make up sponge, I added the two shades of green pigment inks on the card. I removed the stencil to clean the ink of the stencil.


I dried the ink on the card with craft heater, then I added some anti-static powder on it. And then, I taped stencil back on the card. Using the Embossing Dauber, I added the clear embossing ink on the word. I removed the stencil carefully of the card and sprinkled some clear embossing powder on the word, then heat set the powder with craft heater.


Next, I cut the fern branch chipboard of the frame with scissors. I used the same embossing dauber to cover surface of the fern branch with the clear embossing ink. I put the inked fern branch on top of a coffee filter, and then sprinkled the Sage Embossing Glitter on it. I poured the whole jar on it to make sure it was covered well with the embossing powder.


I preheated my craft heater for couple seconds and then heat set the embossing powder. It was super fun to watch the embossing powder melt on the chipboard. Check out all the glitter on the fern branch!


I added the embossed fern branch on the card with the TapeRunner. I embellished the card with some pearl gems I have in my stash.


You can check out all the Chipboard Shape Embellishments and Stencils that you can use for you projects! Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have wonderful day!
