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.

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! 

Clear_Scraps_Mothers_Day_Cards

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.

Clear_Scraps_Mothers_Day_Cards7

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

Clear_Scraps_Mothers_Day_Cards4

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. 

Clear_Scraps_Mothers_Day_Cards3

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

Clear_Scraps_Mothers_Day_Cards9

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

Clear_Scraps_Mothers_Day_Cards2

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. 


Clear_Scraps_Mothers_Day_Cards8

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

Hello friends! Maya here with you today on the blog to share a shaker card featuring the Mini Shaker Birthday Cake and Sprinkles Heart Confetti. I am a big fan of all the shakers from Clear Scraps and I absolutely love to create shaker cards with them!

P1210234_blog

▼ The card size is 6.5 x 5 inches. I started by using a white card stock and covering with a 4.5 x 6 inches patterned paper. On the bottom of the card, I layered two strips of patterned paper and applied border punch on one strip.

20210318_144325

▼ For the birthday cake shaker, I covered the chip back layer with three colors of patterned papers. I also added the rainbow sticker to the bottom two layers of the cake. Next, I adhered two layers of chip foams to the cake, placed the confetti, glued the layer of acrylic divider. Using the watermark ink, embossing powder and heat gun, I gave the top chip foam a coat of white embossing powder.

▼ I also chose some ephemera and chipboard accents to decorate around the card. After I finished the shaker cake, it's time to put them together! I used tacky glue to adhere all the pieces. Last, I added some enamel dots for extra touches to finish this birthday card.

Butterfly Card with Chipboard Embossed Paper

Hello from the Clear Scraps' Blog!

Tami here to share another project and technique idea with you today.

So far this month, I've shared 2 projects each using a similar set of supplies and techniques that use your Clear Scraps' products in different ways.

For my third project, I used a Clear Scraps' Chipboard Embellishment to emboss a design on paper.

It's easy to do using your diecutting or embossing machine!

Clear Scraps' Chipboard Embellishments come in lots and lots of amazing designs, and are a wonderful way to dress up all kinds of projects.

This is just one more way to use them; and STILL have the embellishment to use on another project.

Here is the card I made using this technique; one of the butterflies from the Fancy Butterflies Chipboard Embellishment was used to add the embossed design...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_embellishment_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_complete

You can try out this technique and make the project if you like using the step-out directions below...

Place the chipboard on diecutting plate, position paper over it, then add embossing mat (or cut piece of fun foam) and cover with top plate. Add foam and or chipboard pieces to stack if needed. Your stack will depend on your machine...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_embellishment_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_diecutz

If embossed design is not as detailed or deep as you would like, try adding another piece of foam or chipboard.

Embossed design...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_embellishment_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_embossed

Apply inks in a diagonal rainbow pattern. Dont press hard over embossed area, let applicator glide across it...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_embellishment_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_rainbow_ink

Spritz lightly with water; water will activate the inks...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_embellishment_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_spritz

Blot lightly with clean paper towel...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_embellishment_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_blot

Inked cardstock...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_embellishment_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_watercolor

Stamp sentiment...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_embellishment_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_stamp

Adhere inked cardstock to card front. Cut out sentiment and adhere using foam tape...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_embellishment_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_sentiment

For an alternate project, try embossing several small designs on the paper, then use the Chipboard Embellishment itself on the card for a coordinated look.

Flock of Butterflies Card with Embossing Technique

HiYa!

Tami here on the Clear Scraps' Blog today to share a project with you.

This month I'm focusing on techniques that you can try out using your Clear Scraps' products.

I used a lot of the same supplies on each of the projects to make it easier to play and try out the ideas.

Today, I'll be showing you how to use a Clear Scrap Stencil with your diecut or embossing machine to add an embossed design to paper.

It's nice to be able to "multi-task" your supplies; find different ways to use them.

The design from the Butterfly Flock Stencil was embossed on watercolor paper and then used to make this card...

Clear_scraps_stencil_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_finished

If you'd like to try out the technique, here are the step out directions for the card...

NOTE: For this project, ink your paper before embossing since oxide inks are being used. The embossed detail would be lightened or lost by the use of water on it if you embossed the paper first.

Apply scattered areas of inks across watercolor paper...

Clear_scraps_stencil_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_ink_tamisanders

Spritz lightly with water to activate inks...

Clear_scraps_stencil_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_spritz

Blot lightly with clean paper towel; let dry...

Clear_scraps_stencil_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_blot

Place the stencil on diecutting plate, position paper (inked side down) over it, then add embossing mat (or cut piece of fun foam) and cover with top plate. Add foam and or chipboard pieces to stack if needed. Your stack will depend on your diecut machine...

Clear_scraps_stencil_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_diecut

If embossed design is not as detailed or deep as you would like, try adding another piece of foam or chipboard.

Here's how the paper looks after it is embossed...

Clear_scraps_stencil_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_embossed

Place stencil over inked paper, matching embossed design...

Adhere inked cardstock to card front. Cut out sentiment and adhere using foam tape...

Clear_scraps_stencil_butterfly_card_emboss_technique_tamisanders_sentiment

Embossing your design before stenciling it is a great way to add dimension to your project.

Try embossing on plain white or kraft cardstock, then using bright vivid colors to stencil the design for a bold graphic look.

Stenciled Feathers Altered Tag

Hola!

Tami here with you today on the Clear Scraps Blog.

My projects this month feature different techniques you can use with some of your Clear Scraps products. 

Most of the basic supplies are the same, so gather them up and have a play day to try them out.

Some ideas may be new to you, and some not so new, but the idea is to experiment with the techniques and maybe find a fresh way to use your supplies and Clear Scrap products.

The first project is an altered tag using one of the tags from Clear Scraps' Chipboard Tag Album and the 5 X 9 Feathers Layering Stencil...

 

Clear_scraps_stencil_technique_feathers_altered_tag_tamisanders_complete

Have you ever used modeling paste with your stencils? It is a great way to easily add dimension and texture to your project. 

The center feather in the tag was stenciled using modeling paste, then inked.

I used a page from a vintage dictionary as a background for my tag to add another layer to the project.

The layering stencils from Clear Scraps have a base image, then detail to add on top. You can also use each portion separately.

I put together a short video to show how to make this tag step-by-step...

                                                                                                         

You can use modeling paste to add stenciled designs to Clear Scraps' Wood and Acrylic products too.

You can paint or ink the paste after it dries, or try mixing in a paint or ink before applying the paste.

This altered tag would make a nice gift; slip it in a mailing envelope and send it via old fashioned snail mail.

Life is Good Spring Tag by Maya

Hello everyone and happy Monday! How was everyone's easter weekend? This is Maya on the blog today to share a spring tag I created using chipboard tag and one of the chipboard word titles with Life is Good.

P1210208_blog

▼ For the decoration, I used ephemera that I fussy cut from the patterned papers, stickers and lace ribbon, then I layered all the elements on the tag.

P1210212

▼ For the layering effect, I adhered the first layer with tacky glue and then adhered the next layer with double sided adhesive foam to add depth to the project.

P1210214

▼ I decided to give the word title "Life is Good" a coat of white embossing powder. First, I tapped the chipboard on the watermark ink pad and then sprinkled white embossing powder. Next is to heat with a heat gun.

Thank you for stopping by the blog today. I hope this spring tag brighten your day! Blessings.

Bunnies Chipboard Embellishment Slimline Card

Hello and happy Saturday!  It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a spring time themed card with you today!  And I'm going to show you the techniques I used! Slimline cards are very popular right now and I have to say I enjoy creating them.   I  began by cutting a piece of white cardstock  3 1/2 x 8 1/2, scoring at a half inch. 

Clear_Scraps_Bunnies_Chipboard_Card

I set aside my base to paint the Bunnies Chipboard Embellishment Shapes with white acrylic paint. I did not worry about coverage as the white would be my underlying color. Once my paint was dry, I  applied a generous amount of crackle effect to the surface and allowed to dry. 

Clear_Scraps_Bunnies_Chipboard_Card2

Next, I  cut a 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece from a 12 x 12 Acrylic Sheet.  Using the 4x6 Quarterfoil Stencil and a spatula, I  applied modeling paste to the surface of my acrylic. I only removed the protective film to the front while allowing my paste to dry. This ensures keeping the acrylic clean and free of any unwanted smudges. 

Clear_Scraps_Bunnies_Chipboard_Card3

After my modeling paste was dry, I  repositioned my stencil over the acrylic and blended three coordinating distress oxides over the surface. 

Clear_Scraps_Bunnies_Chipboard_Card4

After ensuring my crackle was dry, I painted a light coat of blue chalk paint over the surface of the Bunnies Chipboard Embellishments. I then added buttons for tails and used a punch for a cute bow tie. I popped the second bunny up using foam dots for extra dimension. 


Clear_Scraps_Bunnies_Chipboard_Card5

Here is a close up of the modeling paste/distress oxide effect with the stencil.  I  love how it turned out! 

Clear_Scraps_Bunnies_Chipboard_Card6

Last, using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive I  added paper flowers to the top of my card for extra spring time accent!

Mixed Media Spring Tags by Maya

Greetings! It's Maya here on the blog today to share two mixed media tags featuring the chipboard tag and chipboard shape embellishments. I absolutely love Clear Scraps chipboard embellishments because they are great to use on any craft project from tags to layouts or even home decor pieces. 

P1210144_CS

▼ I started by tracing the chipboard tags on the patterned papers, cutting them out, and adhering to the chipboard tags with tacky glue.

20210209_150044

▼ I decided to give the background some texture by using the stencils along with modeling paste. The stencils I used on these two tags are 6" Monarch Butterfly and 6" Quarterfoil

20210209_152952

▼ After the modeling paste dried, I started the layering using tearing papers, tags, and chipboard embellishments (cog gears & fancy butterflies) . I usually try different ways of layering until I feel great with the layering. And then I will take a picture for my reference later on when everything is ready to be glued. 

20210209_162917

▼ Here I added splatters by using spray stain for extra colors on the background.

20210209_164705

▼ For the chipboard embellishments, I tapped them on the watermark ink pad, sprinkled white embossing powder and heated with a heat gun.

20210209_170051

▼ When all the elements are ready, I started to adhere them to the tags. I also added some lace ribbon pieces and small ephemera like butterflies and little word titles for extra touches.

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a set of cards using the Dragonflies Chipboard Embellishments.

The dragonflies come as a pair and they just need to be clipped off the frame that surrounds them.

While spraying colors on the chipboard pieces, I realized I had created a wonderful background collage.

I chose to make cards from the paper I created with the spray inks and I put aside the chipboard dragonflies to use at another time.

I used slim line dies to create a card from black cardstock.  I also die cut the top panel from the stenciled paper using the next smaller slim line die.

I created a 2nd card that measured 5" x 5".

 I used a Lavinia stamp and gray ink to add a bit of depth on the square panel.

I used the same Lavinia stamp on the slim line panel.  I wanted a subtle look so the gray ink was perfect.

Next, I inked around the edges of both panels with blue and black inks.  It really brought the designs into focus.

The slim line panel was added to the black card and the square panel was added to a blue card.  The hint of black along the edges really helps it stand out.

Using a left over scrap of  the same paper, I stamped a phrase in gray ink, die cut it and matted it with a larger black circle.  It was then added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

Using a left over scrap of  the same paper, I stamped a difference phrase in gray ink, die cut it and matted it with a larger black circle.  It was then added to the slim line card with foam adhesives for dimension.

So remember your chipboard embellishments can be used in different ways.

Butterfly Shaker Card by Maya

Hello everyone! It's Maya on the blog today sharing this butterfly shaker card to welcome upcoming spring. Below are the process pictures of how I created this greeting card using the mini butterfly shaker and sprinkles heart confetti. Let's check it out!

The card size is 6.5 x 5 inches. First, I went for two different patterned papers for the background and adhered with double sided tape. I also added a strip of white lace ribbon for a extra touch.

▼ The shaker package comes with 5 layers, including 1 chip back, 3 chip forms and 1 acrylic divider. I traced the chip back on a patterned paper and cut out.

▼ After I adhered the cut out to the chip back, I added a joy sticker to the paper.

▼ Next, I used Zip Dry glue to adhere 2 chip foams to the butterfly.

▼ Here, I placed the sequins and confetti to the butterfly. Next is to glue the acrylic divider to cover the butterfly (Remember to remove the protective films on the acrylic divider).  Then, I glued the last chip form on top of the divider. This time I decided not to give the top chip form any color, I just kept the original chipboard color. I love how it turned out!
