Clear Scraps Coffee Mug Chipboard--Cup of Love Acrylic Card

Hi there everyone!!!  Laura here today to give you a little last minute Valentine's Day

Card inspiration!  Or maybe you are working ahead for next year already!

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishment_Cup of Love Card(1)

This card was created using one of the acrylic sheets available from Clear Scraps.

It's actually easy to make one of these cards. and it is so unique!  You can also

stamp on the acrylic, or use stencil pastes, or alcohol inks, but today, I went for

the clear route!   It was cut to a standard 5&1/2"x4&1/4" and the back piece of

red cardstock was cut at 5&1/2"x4&3/4" so it has 1/2" to fold over to attach the

acrylic front of the card easily.  I added a little decorative strip to dress it up a bit.

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishment_Cup of Love Card(2)

And another of the absolutely adorable chipboard embellishments from

Clear Scraps takes center stage on this card.  I just love everything coffee,

and this Coffee Mug Chipboard is just perfect!  Love the little heart in the

center--perfect for Valentine's Day especially!  Easy to create too--I often

paint the Clear Scraps Chipboard Embellishments, but this time, I used

some pretty patterned paper for a different look.

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishment_Cup of Love Card close up 2(1)

The pieces were just traced and cut out.  I brushed the edges with some

black distress ink.  I wanted to fill in the heart with a little something

extra, so I used a separate small scrap of white cardstock.

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishment_Cup of Love Card close up 1(1)

I added a few small heart stickers for a little something extra, which

is why I wanted the nice white background.  After that some twine,

a few additional sentiment and decorative stickers, and it's done!

Sweet and simple, but looks great!  You can find a lot of different

chipboard pieces that make for super quick and easy cards in the

Clear Scraps store.  Check them all out right HERE.

Stenciled Lighthouse Card

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here to share a stenciled Lighthouse card using the 6" Lighthouse Stencil.

Lighthouse-clearscraps-3-steph-ackerman

My card is sized at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" so I cut a white panel slightly smaller.  Centering the stencil on the white panel, I inked it with assorted colors in keeping with the lighthouse look.

Lighthouse-clearscraps-1-steph-ackerman

Taking off the stencil, you can see what you've missed, realign the stencil and add additional colors.

Lighthouse-clearscraps-steph-ackerman

I inked around the panel with light blue ink before matting it with black cardstock.

Lighthouse-clearscraps-2-steph-ackerman

I matted the panel on a blue card with foam adhesives for dimension. 
To finish, I die cut Dream from black cardstock and added to the card.

Shamrock Mini Shaker Gift Bag

Howdy,

Tami on the blog to share another project with you.

As the calendar turns to spring, the colors of nature begin to burst with various colors of green. Some bright and cheery like the lime green of this cute little gift bag...

Clear_scraps_st_patricks_day_shamrock_luck_shaker_box_ts

I turned the Shamrock Mini Shaker into a tag to embellish the bag; it is filled with some BLinGy green plastic flakes...

Clear_scraps_st_patricks_day_shamrock_luck_shaker_box_cu_ts

The top layer of the shaker was painted a dark green, then a layer of Smooch Glitz was added once the paint dried for a glittery finish. Printed paper was adhered to the back piece, and a sticker finishes the embellishment of the shamrock. A ribbon was glued to the back to form the ties for the tag.

This would be a cute little gift for St. Patrick's day of course - you could fill it with treats, a small gift or maybe a gift card. But it would also make a thoughtful gift for someone you want to send a little luck to; like looking for a new job or house, or maybe a competition they are entering or test they are taking. 

Don't forget to remove the protective plastic layer from BOTH sides of Clear Scrap's Shakers and Acrylic products.

Supplies: 

Clear Scraps: Shamrock Mini Shaker

Other: Clear Snap: Parsley Color Eclipse and Shamrock Smooch Glitz, Reminisce Printed Paper and Sticker, Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry, Mini Gift Tote, Ribbon and Fill

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a new baby card using the Stroller Chipboard Embellishment.

Baby-card-clearscraps-5-steph-ackerman

Remove the stroller from it's frame and ink it with distress inks in Bundled Sage and Ground Espresso.

Baby-card-clearscraps-steph-ackerman

I realized I wanted a card for a new baby girl, so I reinked the stroller carriage with pink ink, then embossed it with clear embossing powder.
You can see touches of pink along with the green ink on the stroller.
 
Baby-card-clearscraps-1-steph-ackerman
 
I created a 5 1/2" square card from pink cardstock, then cut baby paper slightly smaller and adhered together.
 
Baby-card-clearscraps-6-steph-ackerman
 
Die cutting a large circle, I placed it on the card.

I stamped the phrase on another smaller circle and added it to the card with foam adhesives. 
Some  Robin's Nest dew drops were added about the stroller.

Jar of Hearts Love Card

Hi ya'll, Tami here with a card to share with you.

Valentine's Day was yesterday, but love is celebrated everyday! Birthdays, Anniversaries or ANY day you want to let someone know you care.

And what is the most universal symbol of love? Why hearts of course!

In this card, dozens of tiny hearts fill a jar made from Clear Scraps' Mason Jars Chipboard Embellishments... 

Clear_scraps_valentine_love_chipboard-mason_jar_card_ts

Here is a close-up pic of the jar...

Clear_scraps_valentine_love_chipboard-mason_jar_card_cu_ts

I covered the solid jar chipboard piece with white cardstock that I stamped with bunches of tiny hearts. The outline jar chipboard piece was inked with silver at the top and white around the sides. I outlined the hearts and jar with black ink to bring out the designs since the card was so simple.

I also rounded the upper right corner of the mat and card for the same reason; a small detail to accent the simple design.

Look for other Chipboard Embellishments from Clear Scrap that can be layered and used together like this Mason Jar.

The Chipboard Embellishments are the perfect size to use on cards, tags, scrapbook pages or other small paper craft projects.

Supplies: Mason Jars Chipboard Embellishments

Quick Easy Stamped Acrylic Valentine's Day Card

 I love using acrylic in my cards!  For today's project I wanted to really play up on the transparent-ness of the acrylic and try stamping an image for accents on my acrylic and to add extra dimensions to my card. This is definitely a quick and easy project which I love this time of year as I always seem to be needing lots of last minute cards! 

Supplies needed

Clears Scraps 12 x 12 Acrylic Sheet

Stamps, Ink (staz-on and archival), patterned Paper, Doilies, Card Stock, Card Base, lace

Start by trimming your card base front so that you have about a 1/2 inch left as shown. 

Trim your Clears Scraps 12 x 12 Acrylic Sheet to fit your card base. Remove protective layer off  one side of your acrylic (I always leave the protective layer on my back side until I  am done creating!)  Stamp heart repeatedly onto acrylic. I choose a simpler stamp and used extra magnets (just in case) on my stamping platform. 

I just love how you can see through the acrylic and yet "see" the hearts I stamped! (note this still has the back layer of protective covering!) 

On your card base add lace. 

Adhere your stamped acrylic sheet to your lacy card base. 

Adhere your card stock to the inside of your card base. 

Add a patterned paper block and a stamped heart matted on a a paper doily to finish the inside of your card!  I hope you are inspired to try stamping on your Clears Scraps 12 x 12 Acrylic Sheets.

Love Mini Shaker Valentine Triptych

Hiya,

Tami with you on the blog today with a new project to share with you. Valentine's Day is coming up in just over a week; so now is the perfect time to make something special for someone special or just to add to your Valentine's Day decor.

Clear Scraps has lots and lots of fun shaker designs and I enjoy trying to find ways to incorporate them in my crafting. I thought it would be nice to create a Love themed triptych using the Love Mini Shaker and the Chipboard Tag Album. I also like all things vintage and Vintage Valentines are some of my favorite ephemera to collect. I had a paper collection that included vintage valentines in the designs, so I pulled that out to use along with some glitter, glitter gel pens, flowers, ribbons and vintage trims to use on the project.

Here is what it looked like when it was all finished...

Clear_scraps_valentine_love_shaker_box_triptych_ts
I really like Clear Scrap's Chipboard Tag Album as you can use the pieces separately to make individual tags or make something by connecting them like this triptych.

I started with the Love Shaker. I painted the top layer with a base of white pearl pigment ink, then when that dried, I added a layer of Smooch Glitz and sprinkled with a vintage-white glitter while it was still wet...

Clear_scraps_valentine_love_shaker_chipboard_tag_bling_tsWhile the shaker dried, I applied a printed paper over the letters on the shaker back piece and a piece of silver foil board to the heart, then glued the other layers of the shaker on top of the back piece...

Clear_scraps_valentine_love_shaker_chipboard_tag_back_tsTo make the triptych, I used pieces of vintage twill tape to connect the tags. The tags were spaced about 1/2" apart to allow the pieces to fold...

Clear_scraps_valentine_love_shaker_chipboard_tag_join_tsThe fronts sides of the tags were covered with printed papers...

Clear_scraps_valentine_love_shaker_chipboard_tag_paper_ts

The Love Shaker was adhered to the center tag, then stickers (I outlined them with the Glitter Gel Pen), flowers and trims were added to embellish the triptych...

Quick and Easy Gift Bag using Mini LOVE SHaker

 

 

Today I am super excited to share this quick and easy Valentine's Day gift bag I created using my Mini Love Shaker from Clear Scraps. This time of year I seem to always be running to the store for gift bags. So, this year I decided to create my own! This project is so quick and easy. You just need enough time for your paint to dry! 

Start by painting your Mini Love Shaker from Clear Scraps base and top layer. I suggest starting with white an letting it dry before adding the red 

I chose to paint my heart red, but if this is a gift bag for a specific cause you could paint the heart to match - such as pink for breast cancer!

Once your paint is dry, begin assembling your shaker.  Add glitter and fillers! Then adhere your acrylic piece (DON'T Forget to recover the protective covering from both sides! )  

Add your top layer then adhere your shaker to two paper doilies as shown and attach to your bag! Just thinking here, this would also make a great gift box topper!  I hope you are inspired to get creative!

Happy February crafting friends! It's Maya on the blog today to share 3 clean and simple cards I made using the 5 x 9 Feathers Layering Stencil. The layering stencils are great for all kinds of projects to add creative designs. And I am going to show you how I used the stencil with the ink blending technique on these cards.

2nd Card

P1210074_2

▼ I decided to blend both outer and inner layers on this card with 4 different colors. I blended ink on the outer layer first.

20210128_135955

▼ Then I overlapped the inner layer and blended the same color again. And I repeated the same process on the other 3 feathers. Last, I stamped words with "Live, Laugh, Love" by using black archival ink.

Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Mitten--I'm S-Mitten Valentine's Card

Hey there everyone!  Laura is here to share a little Valentine's inspiration with you today!

Clear_Scraps_Mitten Mini Shaker_I'm S-Mitten Valentine's Card(1)

I think out of all of the homemade cards, Valentine's can be one of the most special.

They are fun to embellish up any way you want to, because you will often give one to

that "someone special" in person on Valentine's Day.  This particular card was

created using one of the Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Mitten shapes.  Not necessarily

what you'd think of for Valentine's, but hey, I like to think outside the box!  Clear

Scraps has some lovely hearts and such if you'd prefer, but I saw the mitten and

the "S-Mitten" play on words just popped into my head.  Cute, right??!!

To start this one off I first painted the top outline/layer of the mitten with pink,

red, and white acrylic paint.  While that dried, I traced the back portion of the

mitten shaker onto a pretty piece of Valentine heart patterned paper.

Clear_Scraps_Mitten Mini Shaker_I'm S-Mitten Valentine's Card close up 1(1)

Next, I cut the shape out and then glued it to the back solid piece of the shaker.

Then I glued the other 2 unpainted outline shape pieces, to build up the shaker.

Next I added the super cute Valentine sprinkles.  These are NEW from Clear Scraps!

Clear_Scraps_Mitten Mini Shaker_I'm S-Mitten Valentine's Card(2)

This particular mix is called the Sprinkles Love Mix.  Look at the cute little hearts

and snowflakes and yes, sprinkles!  Just adorable!  You can find these and more

 in the "What's New" section in the Clear Scraps store right HERE.   After adding

those sprinkles, I glued on the acrylic layer--and remember--make sure to take

the protective film off of BOTH sides of your acrylic layer!!!  It's hard to tell, but it's

on there to keep it protected until you use it!  Lastly, you glue on the painted top piece.

While it all dries well, I created the standard A2 white card base (5&1/2"x4&1/4") and

added red and patterned paper.  I added some twine, trim and enamel dots to finish it up.

 

Thanks for Stopping by today!  Stop back soon for more inspiration!!

 

Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps:  Mini Shaker Mitten, Sprinkles Love Mix.

Other:  Doodlebug Cream and Sugar paper and Odds & Ends, enamel dots,

acrylic paint--white, pink, red, twine, red cardstock, foam tape.

I added a sentiment sticker and mittens embellishment to the front of my pocket and tucked a mitten ephermera card inside my pocket.

20201226_124631

 The back of #2: cut my paper to measure 3 & 1/2 x 4 & 1/4 inches and glued down onto my tag surface. Then cut another paper at 3 & 1/2 x 2 1/4  to create a pocket. I added a sentiment chipboard sticker and cut out a journaling tag to tuck inside my pocket. Added some silver tinsel through the top hole on my tag. 

20201226_135359

Tag # 3: I chose to add a photo to the back of my chipboard sticker frame. Then glued this onto the center of my acrylic tag. Cut out a sentiment from one of my papers and adhered to the bottom of my photo. Then added a chipboard sticker snowflake to the upper left corner of my photo frame. I took some Luna paste " moonlight pearl" and applied with a small paintbrush tmaround the edge of my acrylic tag. This adds a nice frosty effect. Let dry.

20201227_142315

Back of tag #3: I cut my paper to measure 2 & 3/4 x 4 & 1/2 inches. Adhere to your acrylic tag surface. I cut out Dashing through the snow sentiment and added foam dots to the back.

20201227_083134

Back side of tag #4: cut paper at 3 & 1/2 x 5 & 1/2 inches and adhered to tag surface. Then I cut a polka dot paper to measure 3 & 1/4 x 5 inches and scored it on the left side at 1/2 inch, attached it evenly on left side of tag. This creates a flip page. You may add a photo inside if you like. To decorate my flip page I added a girl on sled sticker and acouple chipboard embellishment stickers.

Next I added a  sticker embellishment to top of my tag. Pop dot to the back of  my snowflake ephermera piece and adhered this to the upper left corner of my photo frame. I also added a pop dot to the back of my "Noted" empherma piece and adhered this to the bottom of my frame. Adhered a sled sticker and snowflake chipboard sticker to finish my tag.

Spring Window by Kelly Parker

Hello on the blog with Clear Scraps today and I have created a hinged Window Shaker! I love this and it was such a fun project, I hope you enjoy it too!

 
To start off this project, I had this vision of what I wanted it to look like but I wasn't sure how to achieve that look, so I started by die cutting all kinds of small leave images from some of my Gelli plate printed papers in greens, yellows, and blues. I wanted a variety to choose from and not run out. 
 
 
I then decided to use washi tape to cover the back of the window. I generally apply glue then add the washi tape then cut off the edges. 
 
 
While the washi tape was drying, I put together the acrylic window. First I had to cut another piece of acrylic because I wanted to add sequins to the front of the window. Pulling out some packaging, I traced around the window and cut out another piece to go on the back. I glued a chipboard window to the back of the acrylic then another chipboard then added the sequins in Ocean and Lovely colors then added the acrylic to the back of this sandwich. You can see it below, the clips are holding it together until it is dry. 
 
After everything was dry, I started to glue down the die-cut pieces to create an illusion of looking through a window. I added leaves to the front and to the inside of the piece after I added the image of the woman peeking out the window.  After this was dry, I drilled holes along the edge and tied it together with some string. 
 

 

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed this project as much as I had creating it!!

Valentine Slimline Cards with Clear Scraps

Hello everyone!  It's Jennifer on the blog today sharing some fun, easy slimline cards I created using Clear Scraps products! Valentines Day is less than a month away so its not too early to get started on some of your own DIY cards! The slimline size is all the rage right now so I decided to incorporate them in to my project.  Each card is approximately 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches.  I'm also going to show you the techniques I used! 

Clear_Scraps_Valentine_Slimline_cards

For my first card, the base is white cardstock that I cut 7 x 8 1/2 inches. I used my Scor-Pal to create a fold at 3 1/2 inches. I adhered a light pink dot background as well as a scalloped border from a die.

Clear_Scraps_Valentine_Slimline_Cards4

For my focal point, I used the Banner Heart Chipboard Embellishment Shape.   I painted the top piece using red chalk paint ensuring I covered all edges.  For the bottom heart base, I applied Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to adhere patterned paper.  I cut the excess with scissors followed by sanding the edges with my sanding tool. 

Clear_Scraps_Valentine_Slimline_Cards2

Next, taking the top portion of my chipboard embellishment, I applied embossing ink to the top surface. I then added red glitter embossing powder and set with heat. I was now ready to assemble my chipboard pieces together using the Beacon 3-in-1.  

Clear_Scraps_Valentine_Slimline_Cards3

Before adhering the Banner Heart Chipboard Embellishment, I stamped a sentiment onto the front of the card as well as added die cuts from the collection I used. 

Clear_Scraps_Valentine_Slimline_Cards5

I also added a couple tags to the top left corner securing them with a small staple. 

Clear_Scraps_Valentine_Slimline_cards6

For my next card, I trimmed a sheet of the 12x12 Acrylic to 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 to act as the front cover of my card. I then cut a piece of white cardstock to 3 3/4 x 8 1/2, scoring at 1/2 inch to create a flap.

At the top portion of the acrylic, I secured the 4x6 Hearts Stencil using washi tape. I then applied a thin layer of modeling paste using a spatula.  I did not worry about my paste being uniform as I wanted to have a bit of distressed look. Once my paste was dry, I added pink, blue, and red Distress Oxide Inks to the surface blending with a foam brush.

Here you can see the end result of the modeling paste + Distress Oxide. I love how the colors compliment each other!

I was then ready to finish assembling my card as well as add coordinating die cuts and stickers.

Creating a White Wintery Card



Wintery greetings!   I have been inspired this month to create some projects that are white on white!  When finished, the projects have such a winter-y feel to them! Today I am excited to share this Winter-y white card I created with some of my favorite Clear Scraps supplies! 
To recreate this card you will need:

Clear Scraps 4 x 6 Brick Wall Stencil 

Clear Scraps Circle Dots Chipboard Embellishment

Clear Scraps Fancy Butterflies Chipboard Embellishment

additional supplies needed:

White Card stock, White Card base, white ribbon, white paint, Light modeling paste, pallet knife, paint brush, stickles



Start by securing your Clear Scraps 4 x 6 Brick Wall Stencil  over a piece of white card stock that is trimmed slightly smaller than your card base.  Apply Light modeling paste over stencil. 


 
Move your stencil and apply modeling paste again to fill your card stock with bricks. Let dry. 
 
 
Paint your chipboard embellishments white. Let dry. 
 
 
Add stickles to the dots on the Clear Scraps Circle Dots Chipboard Embellishment
 
Add dried brick background to card base. Add painted Clear Scraps Circle Dots Chipboard Embellishment and painted Clear Scraps Fancy Butterflies Chipboard Embellishment to card. 

 

Finish your card by adding a sheer white bow! I hope you are excited to get creative with your Clear Scraps chipboard and stencils!
