Flower Mini Shaker Card

Hola!

Tami here on the Clear Scraps' Blog with you today.

I have a fun little project I want to share with you; it's sure to brighten someone's day!

It is a thank you card featuring the Flower Mini Shaker...

Clear_scraps_flower_shaker_card_stencil_thanks_sunburst_tami_sanders

The flower shape is clean and simple and that made me think GRAPHIC! so I used bright colors accented with black to really make the elements PoP!

I started with a 5 X 10 card base of black cardstock.

Then I stenciled some bright rays on a 4 1/2' square of white cardstock. I used the 6" Spiral Stencil with yellow and orange ink...

Here are a few hints for working with stencils. First, use blue painter's tape to secure paper and stencil to your worksurface. Next, on a stencil like this one, with lined sections, it's easier if you glide your ink or paint along the direction of the design. In this case, I started with yellow ink on the outer edges. I pulled the ink from the inside down each of the "rays". Next, I added the orange, this time pulling from the center out toward the edges.

Next I got to work on the shaker. I wanted the background to match the sequins, so I used a pencil to outline the outer rim of the circle as well as the outside of the petals. I filled the designs in with yellow and blue ink...

Once the designs were inked, I cut them out - slightly INSIDE the lines. I checked to be sure that the papers fit properly and wouldn't stick out beyond the edges. Then adhered them to the back of one of the outline portions of the shaker...

Now for the fun part of any shaker --- FiLLiNg it! i used sequins that matched the ink colors...

Clear_scraps_flower_shaker_card_stencil_thanks_fill

I used a black marker to color the top outline part of the shaker, then assembled it. Be sure you remove the protective film from BOTH sides of the acrylic piece. I like using a glue like Zip Dry for this as any excess that might ooze out cleans up easily, and it holds well...

Mouse Autograph Album

Hi everyone, have you seen the assortment of  wood cards available in the store?  Not only can you use them as cards, but consider using them as mini albums.  Check out the cute Mouse Autograph Album I chose to create.  

Mickey-card-clearscraps-steph-ackerman
 
I used the Mouse Wood Card, choosing to turn it into an autograph album. 
With the world finally opening up, how fun would it be to gather signatures of your favorite characters at Disney World in this Disney themed mini album.

It's the perfect size to hold onto while walking around the park, or you can just as easily slip it into your purse.
 
Mickey-card-clearscraps-1-steph-ackerman
 
I inked the covers with yellow ink because it was handy.  But I could also have painted the covers.
 
Mickey-card-clearscraps-2-steph-ackerman
 
I cut about a dozen pages to fit inside the album and then punched the holes.
 
Placing the 6" Dandelion Wind stencil on the front cover, I inked portions with brown ink.

To finish I placed several metal word titles from my stash on the cover.

Baby Cards with Bunnies Chipboard Embellishments

Hi everyone, I've got a set of baby cards to share using the Bunnies Chipboard Embellishments.

Bunny-baby-card-clearscraps-4-steph-ackerman
 
I love creating baby cards, don't you?  There are so many different elements you can use and so many different styles of baby cards you can create.
 
Bunny-baby-card-clearscraps-steph-ackerman
 
I used the Bunnies Chipboard Embellishments, inking and embossing them in different colors. 
Putting them aside, I started creating my cards.
 
 
I had this great baby paper that had both a boy and girl design so I could create similar cards and have the focal point as the bunnies.
 
Bunny-baby-card-clearscraps-2-steph-ackerman
 
Creating a card from pink cardstock, I matted the checked panel with the same cardstock and wrapped it with ribbon.  The baby panels were also matted with cardstock and added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.  The pink bunny was adhered just below the Baby Girl tag.

Creating a 2nd card from blue cardstock, I matted the checked panel with the same cardstock and wrapped it with ribbon.  The baby panels were also matted with cardstock and added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.  The blue bunny was adhered just below the Baby Boy tag.
 
So just remember that bunnies are not just for Easter!

Father's Day Card with new Chipboard Border

Hi Ya!

Tami here with you on the blog today with a Father's Day card to share.

I wanted to design something using one of Clear Scraps' new Chipboard Borders; they come in 5 different designs. They measure 11" long so they are a perfect fit for Clear Scraps' new Slimline Albums. They are also great to use on slimline style cards, or--- if you cut them in half you get 2 - 5 1/2" pieces which fit exactly on a standard 4 1/4 X 5 1/2" card.

While looking the borders over, I thought that the semi circle cut outs on the Curves Chipboard Borders might be interesting to play with.

I needed a card for my hubbie for Father's Day, so I decided to pull out some cardstock, inks and trim in blues and browns along with some Father's Day stamps.

The stamp set had a circle Happy Father's Day sentiment that seemed to match up to the size of the cut outs in the borders, so I started there, and kept adding!

Here's how the card turned out...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_curves_border_fathers_day_card_tami_sanders_wm

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here's how I made it... first, I cut one of the borders in half then inked with several different shades of blue and brown ink...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_curves_border_fathers_day_card_tami_sanders_1

Next, I inked up a piece of white cardstock in different shades of blue, spritzed it lightly with water, blotted gently and set it aside to dry...

Once the cardstock had dried, I cut a 3 1/2 X 5 1/4" piece and punched out 3 circles...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_curves_border_fathers_day_card_tami_sanders_punch

I masked off the bottom of the circle sentiment, inked the stamp, removed the mask and stamped at the top of a circle; repeat for other 2 circles...

I also stamped the sentiment for the card on a leftover piece of the inked paper and hand cut it in the shape of a tag...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_curves_border_fathers_day_card_tami_sanders_tag

Clear_scraps_chipboard_curves_border_fathers_day_card_tami_sanders_stencil

I adhered pieces of twine on the ends of the back of the border with double sided tape, then tied the towards the top...

Then it was time to assemble, I started by adhering the inked paper towards the right side of a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 kraft card base, then adhered the circles to the back of the border before adhering it towards the left of the card base. Attaching the tag with thin twine and a tiny pin finished the card...

Flower Garden Card and Tag

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Dana and I'm back to share a card and matching tag I creates to hopefully inspire you! I love sending my friends and family homemade cards. So I thought why not create a matching tag too! I'm using Clear Scraps Chipboard tags Click Here

20210413_145507

And for my card I chose to use one of Clear Scraps Chipboard wordsClick Here

20210414_140222

I fell in love with Carta Bella new Flower Garden collection so I thought this would be perfect for Spring!

For my tag: I traced my tag shape twice onto one of the papers in this collection. These tags measure 3.75 x 6.75 inches. For this project I only one of the tags. I'll save the other three to use on future projects. Cut out your tag shape, punch a hole at the top. Adhere your paper to the front and back of your chipboard tag. I prefer using Beacons 3 in 1 glue. It's fast drying and adheres quickly.  Then I took one of the journaling cards, inked the edges and added foam dots to the back, before adhering to the center of my tag. I glued a matching chipboard over the marching journaling card image. Added a sticker border to the bottom of my tag, along with a sticker flower on the left side (I used foam dots to adhere flower) 20210413_183902

To finish off my tag, I matted a sticker sentiment onto green coordinating paper adhered this at the top with foam dots. Adhered 3 enamel dots to the right side of my journaling card. Tied some matching ribbons through the hole at the top!

20210414_134157

For my card: My card measures 6x6 inches. I added the coordinating green paper over the base of my card with glue. For the next two card layers I cut my papers slightly smaller and matted then onto my card using foam tape. This adds dimension and a nice layered look to your card. Set your card aside for now. 

Next we will decorate our chipboard "Love" words. I chose to apply some Art Alchemy Impasto paint (Mint) to my chipboard surface, using a slight pouncing motion. It adds a nice textured look. Let dry. 

20210414_162829

Next I chose one of ephemera cards sentiment, inked the edges with a light blue distress ink. Then added some foam dots to the back and adhered to the top center of my card. I fussy cut a few flowers from my sticker sheet and pop dot them onto my ephermera card. I added some dazzle stickers to my flower centers. 

Now take your Love chipboard word and adhere with glue to the bottom of your card. I took another empherma word title, cut it apart, inked the edges and glued on the bottom right side of my card. To finish off my card, I pop dot a flower pot above my grows here sentiment. Added a few enamel dots.

Seashell Shaker Card

Hello crafty friends! It's Maya here on the blog today to share this beach themed shaker card featuring the mini shaker shell. I am a big fan of all the shakers and I enjoy using them to create shaker cards, turning them into something unique!

P1210332

▼ The shaker pack includes 1 chipboard back, 3 chipboard forms, and 1 acrylic divider.

20210422_131737

▼ I started by decorating the shell shaker. First, I laid a chipboard form on a patterned paper, traced the shape using a pencil, cut it out, and adhered to the chipboard back using tacky glue.

20210422_143917

▼ Here I adhered two chipboard forms to the chipboard back and placed the sequins. Then, remove protective films on both sides of the acrylic divider and glue it to the chipboard form.

20210422_144921

▼ Next, I gave a coat of white embossing powder to the chipboard form and used tacky glue to adhere it to the top of the shell.

20210422_154318

▼ Here you can see all the ephemera that I fussy cut from a patterned paper. I used them to layer and decorate around the card.

20210422_165324

▼ The card size is 6.5 x 5 inches. I used white card stock and covered it with a wood grain patterned paper for the background. And I just layered and glued all the elements and the shell shaker to finish the card.

Bouquet of Daisies Stenciled Canvas Gift Bag

Hola!

Tami here with you on the blog today with another project to share with you.

Clear Scraps has some wonderful stencil designs, and several of them are florals that are perfect for summer!

I needed a gift bag for a thank you gift - school is out soon, you might need one for a gift for that special teacher.

The Bouquet of Daisies is one of the fabulous flower stencil designs...

The 6 X 6 size was a perfect fit for the canvas bag I wanted to use. 

I was very happy with how this project turned out; bright and cheery and perfect for spring!

Clear_scraps_stencil_flowers_ink_canvas_bag_tsanders_

Making the bag was easy. I had a canvas bag I wanted to use, so I used some fabric ink, but you could also stencil on a paper gift bag.

I put a piece of cardboard in the bag - so the ink wouldn't go through to the other side. then I arranged the stencil on the bag and taped it down using blue painters tape. I also taped off the areas beside the stencil where the design was close to the edge. This prevents accidental inking off the edges...

Clear_scraps_stencil_flowers_ink_canvas_bag_tsanders_mask

I started filling in the flowers using orange at the center and yellow for the petals - I let the orange go into the inside edges of the petals...

Clear_scraps_stencil_flowers_ink_canvas_bag_tsanders_fill

I filled in the leaves and stems with 2 shades of green...

Clear_scraps_stencil_flowers_ink_canvas_bag_tsanders_leaves

Here's a closeup of the stenciled design...

Clear_scraps_stencil_flowers_ink_canvas_bag_tsanders_design

I also stenciled a flower on a hand cut tag for the gift. I made sure I taped off the portions of the flower designs that were close to the flower I was using...

Clear Scraps Chipboard Embellishments--Congrats Grad Cards

Hi there everyone!!!   Laura here with you today to get you ready for those graduations

that are happening or right around the corner!  I'm sharing a couple of card ideas with

you that are created using the Clear Scraps Graduation Chipboard Embellishment set!!Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishment_Congrats Grad Cards(1)If there is one thing I love, it's getting a multiple projects out of one set of

embellishments.  How about you?  This chipboard set from Clear Scraps is

an absolutely perfect set to create 2 GREAT grad cards!!  Love that!!

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishment_Congrats Grad Cards(2)

You can see on this one it's super simple too!  Just cut the chipboard pieces

apart, and paint.  And the best part about chipboard--YOU choose the color!

So you can match the school's colors or match the colors of your papers for a

more generic look.  Here I used black and gold acrylic paint, and it just so happens,

that's a perfect match for the school colors I was going for--but it's also a great

standard grad hat look that you could use for anyone--it's a bonus that it matches

these papers perfectly!  A journal card, a few stickers, and it's done!

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishment_Congrats Grad Cards(3)

For the graduation scroll, I used white acrylic paint, and went with the gold

again because of the match, but red would be a great choice too--it's often used

for the graduation scroll look.  So super simple--don't you love quick and easy?

Really easy to make multiples of cards like this for all the grads in your life!

Having some of these Clear Scraps Chipboard Embellishments on hand for grads,

or one of the many other options--birthday, baby, confirmation, Christmas, just

about anything you'd want, is always a great idea!  Stop over to the Clear Scraps store,

and you can find all the different chipboard embellishment options right HERE.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Elegant Vintage Acrylic Box and Tags

Hello Crafty Friends and family! 

Im Dana and I'm back to share a Vintage box idea using Clear Scraps small Acrylic Box Click Here

This box measures: 3.5 x 5.0.

20210411_112556

If you haven't worked with acrylic before and have felt afraid to try, I can assure you will find it so easy.  I'll walk you through every step. And Clear Scraps acrylic is very sturdy and the possibilities are endless what you can create!

Open your package and remove the protective film off both sides of each piece of acrylic. Lay them out as shown on the diagram. I placed the labeled letters behind each piece just to keep them in order. 

20210411_113224

Assemble your box and glue all pieces together and apply the round clear stickers, (included) to each corner of your box.  This help hold your box together. I recommend using a strong solvent based adhesive such as Beacon 3 in 1 glue. It's my favorite go to glue for all my projects! 

20210411_115748

After throughly dried, remove all clear round stickers from the corners. To decorate my box I chose to use Graphic45 Elegance collection. I used a variety of papers, chipboard, diecuts and ephermera pack. 

First I chose one of the border papers and cut them down to fit 5 inches on long sides and 3 & 1/2 inches on short sides.  I inked the edges eith Distress ink before gluing. Adhere your border strips along the bottom edges of your box. 

20210411_130157

Next I chose one of the journaling cards and adhered it to the inside bottom of my box. 

20210411_130056

For the top cover I cut another border strip and adhered to the bottom of my cover, took a chipboard sentiment and adhered in the center of my top cover. I fussy cut out a butterfly and dress form from the coordinating papers. Inked the edges of my pieces. Added some foam dots to the back of the dress form before gluing. Took a diecut leaf, some flowers and glued them in the right corner of my chipboard piece. Then added the butterfly and some glitter accents to the butterfly wings and dress form.

20210411_142711

I decided to make 3 matching tags with leftover papers and items in my stash. For the tags I used Clear Scraps 12 x12 acrylic sheet. Click Here

My tags measure 2 & 1/2 x 3 & 3/4 inches. Remember to peel off the protective film before decorating. I punch holes at the top of each tag. Then I decorated each tag. I used a variety of papers, diecuts, small ephermera cards, flowers and gems! And of course some glitter accents. Lastly I tied some pink and white tulle through the top hole on each tag. These tags will  fit nicely inside your box.

Stenciled Daisy Cards

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a set of Stenciled Daisy Cards.

Have you seen all the stencils available at Clear Scraps? 
There are  a variety of sizes - some are small enough for cards and some are large enough for home decor projects.

I've used the 6" Bouquet Daisies for my cards. 

Daisy-cards-clearscraps-steph-ackerman

Start by using some low tack tape to tape the Daisy Stencil to your work surface so the stencil and paper don't move around while you are inking it. 
Beginning with the first color, ink the daisies.
I used Distress Oxide Inks for my first card, using lemonade and marigold for the flowers.

Daisy-cards-clearscraps-1-steph-ackerman

Adding marigold as a second color to the daisies, I created for dimension.
Next, I used bundled sage to ink the leaves and stems.

Daisy-cards-clearscraps-2-steph-ackerman

Removing the stencil, I inked around the panel with lemonade ink.

Daisy-cards-clearscraps-4-steph-ackerman

Repeat the process for a second card with different colors of ink.
This time I used Brilliance inks to achieve a different effect.

Daisy-cards-clearscraps-5-steph-ackerman

Mat each panel with coordinating cardstock and add to a card.  Using a Fairy Hugs phrase, stamp it directly on the panel.

Daisy-cards-clearscraps-6-steph-ackerman
These cards are fairly simple and easy to create, but are quite eye catching, don't you think?

Beyond the Sea Tag

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Do you love beach themed projects? It's Maya here on the blog today to share this beach themed tag using the acrylic tag and sand dollar chipboard embellishments.

P1210337

▼ I started by moving the films on both sides of the tag and covering with a 3.5 x 5.5 patterned paper.

20210426_112716

▼ I also cut out a blue banner for the background. Next, I used ephemera that I fussy cut from the patterned papers and layered them on the tag. For the layering effect, I adhered some pieces with double sided adhesive foam tape to add depth to the project. 

20210426_124515

▼  For the chipboard starfish, I decided to give it a coat of embossing powder. I started by tapping the chipboard on the watermark ink pad.

20210426_131103

▼ Next is to sprinkle white embossing powder to the starfish. Shake on enough so that powder is sticking to all parts of the chipboard. Then, hold the chipboard slightly tilted over a piece of paper to catch the powder. Lastly, put the chipboard on a piece of paper and use a heat gun to melt the powder.

20210426_131155

▼ I also added some blue and green embossing powder on the edge of the starfish to give it more colors. And it's time to layer and glue all the pieces to the tag.

P1210338

Thank you all for stopping by today. I hope this beach themed tag brighten your day. Blessings.

Mermaid Fin Shaker card

Hi Crafty Friends!

It's Dana and I'm here to share a Slimline shaker card project. I'm sure you know how popular the Slimline cards are right now. So when I saw this new Shaker Fin from Clear Scraps, I could hardly wait to use it. You can find it here Click Here

20210410_130405

My Slimline card measures: 7 & 1/4 x 8 & 1/4. Score @ 4 &3/8 inches. I used a plain white heavy cardstock. To decorate my card base, I used Frank Garcia's St. Tropaz paper and cut it to fit my card base, leaving 1/4 inch of white card showing around the edge. I added some foam dots to the back before adhering to my card. Then I cut one of the border papers to fit and added some foam dots to the back and adhered at the bottom of my card.

20210410_132249

Set your card aside for now. Take out your shaker pieces. Take the back base piece and trace onto another paper of your choice and cut out. Take your Beacon 3 in 1 glue and adhere your paper to the shaker bottom piece. Then using an x-acto knife trim along the edge. Distress around the edges with Clear Scraps sanding stick. Click Here

20210410_134532

Next I painted my top shaker piece using Spectrum Noir Sparkle paint Aquamarine. Be sure to paint around the sides of all shaker pieces except the acrylic piece. Let dry. Then glue the first two shaker pieces to your shaker base. Fill your shaker with sequins or whatever you prefer. For my project I used Clear Scraps Winter sequins pack but I omitted the red sequins. You can find them Click Here.

Then peel the protective film off both sides of the acrylic shaker piece before gluing. Add your top shaker piece to finish. Set aside and let dry throughly before shaking! I know it's hard not to shake! 

20210410_142324

Now take your card and plan out how you want to decorate it along with any embellishments you wish to use. I chose to take one of the journaling cards to use for my sentiment. I used a scalloped die to cut out my sentiment shape. Added foam dots to the back and adhered in the upper right corner of my card. Added a chipboard foil heart and puffy stickers to the edge of my sentiment.  I glued my shaker Finn piece to the left side of my card and slanted it slightly. I added a small flower to the bottom of my shaker Finn. Fuzzy cut out a little turtle, metal anchor and a few clear enamel dots.

Mother's Day Cards with Clear Scraps

Happy Friday! It's Jennifer on the blog today to share acrylic cards I created using Clear Scraps Chipboard Embellishment Shapes!  And I'm going to show you the easy techniques I  used!

For my first card, I cut a 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece from the 12x12 Acrylic Sheet. I  removed the protective covering from only one side of the acrylic while I  worked.

Using Staz On Ink in Opaque, I  stamped the front of my acrylic (re-inking the stamp each time).

I set aside the acrylic to dry so I could paint the Chipboard Embellishment Shapes I planned to use.  For the Clothes Hangers Chipboard Embellishment Shapes and Mother Chipboard Script Word Title, I painted each with chalk paint in light blue.  I ensured that I applied multiple coats for good coverage.  Once dry, I applied embossing ink followed by glitter blue embossing powder.

I adhered my chipboard using Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive as it dries quickly and will not warp or yellow the acrylic.

For my second card, I used the Mother Chipboard Script Word Title and followed the same techniques as my first card.

I  again used Staz On Opaque to stamp the front of my acrylic but this time, I  did not re ink my stamp each time. This gave a muted effect to a few of the images.

The chipboard is again adhered with my Beacon adhesive as you know you will get a good seal between your pieces!
