DIY Shaker Camera Wood Sign

Clearscraps-woodshape-chipboard-sign-helengullett

Hello everyone... Helen is here today. I’d like to share this fun Shaker Camera Wood Sign that I made using the new Wood Shapes Per 3 Pak and Mini Shaker Camera. These are supen fun new products! There are more at the store, too!

I love taking pictures with my camera, especially my family pictures. When I saw this Mini Shaker Camera chipboard embellishment, I want to use it on this project along with my favorite quote.

First, the base I used is one of the new Wood Shapes Per 3 Pak. I covered the wood with the marble patterned scrapbook paper. I traced the wood on the paper and then cut it with scissors. I added it on the wood with Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue.

Clearscraps-woodshape-chipboard-sign1-helengullett.

I covered the top and bottom pieces of this shaker camera chipboard with white gesso and then silver metallic paint. I did it with my finger to get the random distressed look on the camera.

When the painted pieces dried, I stacked all the pieces using the Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue. When you work with shaker pieces, there is 2 pieces of clear plastic film on the protect the plastic piece ofthe shaker that you need to remove first before you add it on the chipboard. For the shaker filler, I used the mixed sequins I have in my stash. I put stackes of acrylic blocks to hold the pieces down while the glue drying.

Clearscraps-woodshape-chipboard-sign2-helengullett.

I used my digital stamps on for the quote and frame. I edited them on my computer using the Pixlmator Pro software and then print it with Cannon inkjet printer. I colored the frame with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Alcohol Marker. I fussy cut it with scissors.

I added the sentiment and camera on the wood with the same adhesive glue. If you don’t have the Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue, make sure your glue is strong, permanent and works on all surefaces, including wood.

This sign is now up in my craft room to remind me that there is hope for another shot in this life. So, don’t give up!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Come back again for more inspirations from the design team! Have wonderful day!

 


Springtime Flower Basket Card

Springtime Flower Basket Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Main

Hi everyone!  It's Annie, and today I'm sharing a quick tutorial for this pretty springtime flower basket card made with one of the newest chipboard embellishments in the Clear Scraps shop.  Although the Basket Chipboard embellishment begs to be used on all of your Easter projects, it's super versatile and could be filled with seashells, pumpkins, or poinsettias for use all year long!

Springtime Flower Basket Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Chipboard Basket

I started by pressing my Versamark ink pad all over the basket chipboard shape several times until I had a nice even coating.  Then I poured light pink embossing powder over the shape and melted it with my heat tool.  After repeating these steps one more time, I was left with a shiny pink enamel embellishment that looked like I bought it that way!

Springtime Flower Basket Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Background

To create the subtle plaid background for the card, I first ran a piece of light blue cardstock through my diecutting machine with the 6" Diamonds stencil and an embossing pad.  This left an embossed diamond impression over the entire panel.  Then, I shifted the stencil over my embossed piece so that the diamond cutouts would line up with the "x" of the embossed pattern.  After applying white pigment ink through the stencil, the result was a subtle plaid pattern with both color and texture.

Springtime Flower Basket Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Detail

I matted the plaid panel with some gold cardstock before adhering it all to a top-folding A2-sized white card base.  To keep the background from showing through the basket, I cut some kraft cardstock to fit behind the chipboard shape and adhered it to the back before adding the basket to the front of the card with liquid glue.

After filling the basket with some die-cut, shaped, and inked daisies, I added a small gold bow to the handle and a foiled sentiment across the bottom.

I hope you enjoyed this pretty springtime card project and thanks so much for stopping by today.  Be sure to visit the Clear Scraps shop to see all of the fun new chipboard shapes available!

Easter Panel by Steph

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today using some of the new products available at ClearScraps.

Easter-clearscraps-4-steph-ackerman

The panel I used is approximately 8" x 10".  I divided the panel into 2 sections, one for the grass and one for the sky, then dry brushed on the paints.

Easter-clearscraps-2-steph-ackerman
 
The Bunny Mini Wood Pallet Shape was painted pink and Nuvo drops were added to her ears for dimension.  She was then placed on the grass.  The Easter chipboard word title was painted purple and glued above the bunny.  A strip of Rinea Foiled Paper in Emerald was torn and placed across the panel, then the bunny was added on top.
 
Easter-clearscraps-3-steph-ackerman
 
Using a small oval die, I die cut assorted papers to create Easter eggs.  They were placed around the panel and Nuvo Drops were added to several eggs for dimension.

I used a Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the panel and added ribbon for hanging.

Love Grows Wild

Happy Thursday Clear Scraps family. Leah here with you today sharing this cute spring home decor sign, and I couldn't resist using this chipboard Vintage LG Truck on the Rectangle Medium Wood Pallet.

Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I had started off painting this truck a bright fire-engine red, but it didn't work with this paper I wanted to use, so I ended up painting it this non-traditional pink, which makes me SO HAPPY. It sings spring to me!


Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I've been with Clear Scraps over 6 years now, so have quite the stash, and included in it are these awesome acrylic flower embellishments.


Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I ended up staining them with Alcohol ink and adding perfect pearls to create texture. I then just layered looooots of flowers behind the truck!


Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I love how bright and happy this home decor piece is. I think it will work as a wreath on the front door or right inside the entry way!
Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I just want to take a minute and Thank Susan and Jim for allowing me to be a part of the Clear Scraps family for so long. I love their products and have believed in them since day one when I started on the Design Team. I will miss making projects and sharing them with you, but will always love and support this company. <3

DIY Spring Wood Pallet Sign

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring-helengullett

Hello everyone! Helen is here today. March is here and that means Spring is coming, too! It is time for a new home decor. 

I made this new Spring Wood Pallet Sign using the new Wagon Large Chipboard Embellishment and Rectangle 12x10 Medium DIY Pallet Shape.

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring1-helengullett

To decorate the Rectangle 12x10 Medium DIY Pallet Shape, I measured the size of each pallet and then I trimmed a 12x12 scrapbook paper with paper trimmer into paper strips. Or you also can simply trace the wood pallet on top of the 12x12 scrapbook paper and cut with scissors.

I added each paper strip on the wood pallet with Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue. If you don’t have this glue, make sure you use permament strong adhesive glue that works on wood surface.

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring2-helengullett

Next step is decorating the Wagon Large Chipboard Embellishment. I used heat embossing technique on this chipboard embellishment. It is easy and give some texture on the wagon, it looks like a painted wood wagon.

I applied the VersaMark ink all over the wagon chipboard surface.

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring3-helengullett

And then, I sprinkled the white opaque glitter embossing powder (I have a bottle that I mixed the white embossing powder and iridecent glitter embossing powder). I cover the whole surface.

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring4-helengullett

And then, carefully I used my craft heater gun to heat set the embossing powder. Please, make sure your craft heater gun is warm enough to melt the powder, better pre-heat it for 15-30 seconds before. If not, you will blow some of the powder off when you go over the chipboard when it is still cool.

I did this embossing step three times to get the thickness that I wanted on the wagon and for the wheels I decided to use the black glitter embossing powder for the second and third layer.

When the embossing step is done, I adde the chipboard on top of the wood pallet with the Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue, and I held it down for a minute to make sure the glue dried well. I added a diecut flowers and leaves on the wagon to embellish it.

For the sentiment on the sign, I used cork letter stickers and I wrote the rest of the Bible verse with permanent marker brush.

I finished the wood sign with couple of those gold beaded butterflies that I added on the wood with the same adhesive glue. It is ready to be put on our mantle for Spring decor.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Make sure to come back tomorrow to see more inspirations from the design team. And... Check out more of the new products at Clear Scraps store that you will love to use for your projects!

Have wonderful day!


Clear Scraps Medium DIY Pallet -- Flannel Fun

Hi there everyone!  Laura with you today and even with

spring right around the corner (yes it's coming!) I'm

sharing a home decor project that would be great year

round, especially if you love cabin or woodsy decor,

or love that buffalo plaid themed home decor look

look that is so popular right now!  It's sure one of my

favorite looks, how about you?

Clear_Scraps_ DIY Pallet_Flannel Fun_LCDec 2019(1)

How cute is this little sign?!!  It started with the Clear Scraps

Medium DIY Pallet, these little square pallets are so great for

any home decor project!  Paint 'em, ink 'em, paper 'em!  Any

theme you want for seasonal decor, or add photos to display

a favorite memory.  Sometimes I keep it simple, and so this

is just painted up with brown acrylic paint on the top and

bottom boards.  The center board is covered with a piece

of patterned paper that goes with the outdoorsy theme.

Love the new Vintage Truck LG chipboard embellishment,

which is one of many chipboard shapes available in the

Clear Scraps store!  Want to see all the others available

just waiting for your creativity?  You can find them all HERE

Clear_Scraps_ DIY Pallet_Flannel Fun close up 1

The truck has been painted with red, black and brown acrylic

paint, and then I went around the edges with black ink to

make it look a little more vintage/aged.  I added a bunch of

 cute cabin and outdoor themed stickers.  They are layered,

using foam tape, at the back of the truck. At the top,

the word Howdy is also new from Clear Scraps! 

Clear_Scraps_ DIY Pallet_Flannel Fun close up 2

It's just painted with black acrylic paint which matches the

buffalo plaid theme perfectly!  The little "channel the

flannel" tag with a twine bow adds a little of that plaid

flair and color at the top of the project.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Feeling Lucky Shamrock Shaker Home Decor

Good Morning friends! Leah here with you today to share another home decor item.

As you know, Saint Patricks Day is around the corner, and whether you're Irish or not, there is something to love about little Shamrocks and rainbows!

Shamrock-Shaker_LeahCrowe

I had this cute Mini Shaker Shamrock and knew I wanted to make something with it, so I pondered on that while I put the little shaker together.


Shamrock-Shaker_LeahCrowe

I adhered pattern paper to the top and bottom layer of chipboard then filled the shamrock with little rhinestones.

I happened to look up and notice my daughter's rainbow canvas hanging on my wall. I had rescued it from the trash when she tossed it over a year ago, vowing I would figure out a way to re-purpose it and surprise her. I ended up adding some black stazon ink to the background and edges, and dressed it up with ribbon and stickers, with the focal point being that adorable SHAKER!


Shamrock-Shaker_LeahCrowe

Look how cute this is hanging up! I love that it can be interactive with the shaker element too.

Happy Saint Patricks Day a little early!

Alpine Train Card

Alpine Train Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Main

Hi there!  It's Annie, and today I'm sharing a tutorial to make this fun slimline card using one of the newest chipboard embellishments from the Clear Scraps shop.  As soon as I saw this cute train shape, I knew I wanted to place it into an alpine scene for a unique bon voyage card.

Alpine Train Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Color Train

Start by trimming the train chipboard embellishment out of it's frame and applying color.  One of my favorite ways to finish chipboard embellishments is to coat the piece in Versamark ink (by just pressing the pad all over the shape) and add different colors of embossing powder.  Here I've used black embossing powder for the engine and burgundy and black embossing powders for the cars.  Applying several coats of powder (melting in between with a heat tool) leaves the perfect enamel finish on the shape.

Alpine Train Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Embellish Train

For a little embellishment, I trimmed very thin strips out of a gold foil label sheet and used them as pinstripes on the engine and cars.  The tiny number seven on the engine was made with the same gold strip, trimmed out neatly with detail scissors.

Alpine Train Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Stencil Background

To create the background, I first cut a panel of white cardstock to 3.75" x 9".  After stamping mountaintops at the very top of the panel and fussycutting the edge out, I stenciled pine trees on the lower part of the panel using the Pine Trees stencil and several shades of green ink.  Alternating the height, color, and order of the tree shapes across the card gives a more natural look to the background.

Alpine Train Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Final

Pop the background scene up on top of blue panel to create the sky, then mat it with black cardstock before adhering it all down to a top-folding slimline cardbase (4" x 9.25").  Add a grey strip of cardstock and train tracks (I used a thin striped border die to create mine from black cardstock) to the bottom of the panel before popping the chipboard train up top with foam adhesive.  Finish the card off with a stamped or die cut sentiment.

Alpine Train Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Standing

I hope you enjoyed this fun alpine train card project and thanks so much for stopping by today.  With so many awesome new chipboard embellishments in the Clear Scraps shop, which one will you choose for your next project?

New Shaker Camera

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here using on the new Clear Scraps shaker products


The camera comes with 3 chipboard elements and one acrylic sheet to create the shaker effect.  I painted the outer pieces with blue paint.  Then I rubbed distress ink over them giving them an aged effect.

 
I die cut a panel of flip flops to fit the center window and glued it in place.
 
 
To complete, I placed the acrylic panel next then added beads in the cavities.  Once I had the number of beads in each cavity, I glued the back panel in place and placed a stack of books on top to ensure the pieces were fully glued together.  I threaded a strip of ribbon through the slot, tying it in place.  Finally, I used Nuvo Drops to add decorative elements around the camera face.
 
 
Isn't it sweet?
 
Thanks for stopping by.

"You had me at Hello" Acylic Layout

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a layout that I created using the 12x 12 Acrylic Sheets.

I created this in celebration of my upcoming anniversary with my husband.

This is celebrating our 32rd year together, we met in 1988!  Boy does that seem like a very long time!

Enough of that lets get to my project!

Watermarked-20200212_142335 (2)

The products I used in my project are the 12x12 Acrylice Sheet, Circledots Chipboard Embellishment, and

the 4x6 "You had me at Hello" stencil.

CSCEcircledots-2CSCEcircledots-2CSCEcircledots-2

I layered my pattern paper to the acrylic sheet.  My second layer I added some lace to one edge.

I layerd a heart paper doily to the top left corner, which I distress with ink.

I added another layer of pattern paper, and added more lace to the left hand side.

Watermarked-20200212_142343

I used the stencil on the photo mat, putting the hello at the bottom and

"you had me at" to the right hand side going down.

Watermarked-20200212_142347

I used the chipboard embellshment over my photo, which I used distress ink

to darken it up and used some glossy accents to all the dots.

I finished it off with some other embellishments form my stash.

I can put this in an album, since its fairly flat, or hang it on the wall.

Love how it has turned out!

Thanks for stopping!

Kim :)


LOVE Pallet Sign

Happy hearts Day Clear Scraps fam! I love hearts and being able to create with the new small WOOD heart frame, 10 x 12 rectangle pallet, and LOVE chipboard embellishment had me thinking this was perfect for displaying the love of family.

Small_LoveChip_HeartFrame_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I started off by painting the rectangle pallet and chipboard heart frames white. Once dry I inked around the edges giving them a pop of color.

I cut strips of pattern paper (top & bottom) 2.5" x 11.5" (middle) 3.5" x 11.5" and adhered them to the pallet shape.

Small_LoveChip4_HeartFrame_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I used the frame base at the top of the sign to house flowers.

Small_LoveChip2_HeartFrame_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I then used the heart frame itself to hold my family photo and adhered to the bottom right corner. Doing this created a nice diagonal visual line for the eye to follow.

Small_LoveChip3_HeartFrame_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I then added more floral embellishments along the rows and added a hanging element to the backside of the pallet.

Small_LoveChip_HeartFrame_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I hope your day is filled with bushels of love today.

Blessed Chipboard Embellished Valentine Card

Hi Ya'll,

Tami here today with a card and some ideas to share with you.

Valentine's Day is only a few days away, and if traditional pink and red or conversation heart pastels don't appeal to you, maybe the colors in this card will.

Clear_scraps_chipboard_double_heart_valentine
I think Valentines can come in all sorts of colors and I thought this mix of prints was fun, romantic and vintage inspired. Plus it could be used as an anniversary or wedding card or if you left off the flowers, it would be suitable as a masculine card as well.

I used two different chipboard embellishments on this card, Double Hearts and Blessed Word Title.

The Double Hearts Chipboard comes in a 4 X 6 frame that you cut the embellishment out of. But those frames are a handy little embellishment too.

After laying out the card, I thought it would be a pretty little display piece if I framed it, so I decided to turn the cut away chipboard frame vertically and use it as the frame. So hang onto those frames once you remove the embellishment and upcycle them.

I love all things vintage, so I wanted the chipboard to take on the look of weathered wood. To do this, I used several different paint colors on the frame and heart and only partially mixed them, so that the individual colors would still show. Then I dry brushed them on. I decided to do the Blessed chipboard piece all in white so it would really stand out. After the paints dried, I lightly distressed the pieces with a file.

After the recipient has read your card, they could cut off the front of the card and display it or add a ribbon to hang it.; another way to upcycle.

I hope you have enjoyed this project and gathered some ideas to use on your own projects.

Supplies:

Clear Scraps Double Hearts and Blessed Word Title

DecoArt: Translucent White and Cobalt Turquoise Media Fluid Acrylics and Americana Bahama Blue, Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry, Printed Paper Scraps, Flowers and Pearls

Tools: Trimmer, Scissors and Paintbrushes
