Clear Scraps and Stampendous on a Wednesday

 

We love all the possibilities Clear Scraps provides for the traditional paper crafter, but as with many projects we sometimes hit a bump in the creative process from a blank canvas. To help out, we are pinning the projects from this week’s hop to our Pinterest board HERE so visit often to see the inspiration grow with new projects any time we use Clear Scraps products.

We are blessed to have designer Wendy Price on our team who shares her talent on the Clear Scraps design team also.  We see a steady stream of inspiration from her blog using her Stampendous goodies on Clear Scraps products like this Screwloose and Sparky layout from a few weeks ago.

Screwloose and Sparky Layout by Wendy Price

 

Wendy used a great technique on this layout by creating opaque sections on a clear canvas! Here’s a snapshot on this technique from her project tutorial that can be seen in full on her blog HERE.

Creating with a clear canvas really has more possibilities from both sides of the “paper”! We love it and we know you will too, so we are giving three of you a chance to try it out!

We have three prize packages up for grabs each will include our Cling Jumbo Filigree Stamp Set, a Jumbo Perfectly Clear Acrylic Handle, PLUS a Clear Scraps Mixable Album and some extra acrylic accents! Comment on our blog and each designer’s blog of the day throughout this week of our hop and the winners will be announced Monday, May 18th.Official Rules apply for Stampendous prizes.

Handmade Gifts Week – Day 5

Finally Friday here on Handmade Gifts week. It’s flown by waaaay too fast! Don’t you feel inspired to start some handmade Christmas gifts this weekend? Well, don’t forget Saturday morning we’ll be featuring an entire team full of gift ideas here. Be sure to visit ALL the blogs and leave a comment for the chance to win the stamps used on this week’s gifts.

Today we want to feature a fantastic project for a beginning stamper! A featured project on Michaels Stores’ Stamptember  celebration this year, this darling picture frame was created by our in-house Sample Artist Debi Hammons. All the products used are available at Michaels.

Carte Postale Frame by Debi Hammons

This adorable frame is so easy. It features our Carte Postale stamp. Debi has even used it to impress into a medallion she created with several layers of gold embossing powder.

These inexpensive wood frames make fantastic gifts for the traveler in your life. Or just frame your children’s school pictures for grandparents and others!

Today one of our Design Team members has some inspiration for you.

Please visit Tenia Nelson’s blog and leave some comments to win some of the great stamps shown in this week’s projects.

(and be sure to keep your eye on our blog for winner announcements!) (In fact you might want to go back over some old posts and see if you won anything…we still have a few unclaimed prizes from recent events.)  We also thought we’d remind you of some other gift ideas that our team members have posted earlier this year like:

Jan Garber’s Notecard Gift Sets

or her Christmas Cardinals Decorator Plate

And what about

Suzanne Czosek’s Angel Bear Christmas Triptych

or her Jumbo Iris Decorator Plate

or even her AMAZING Clear Scraps Album

How about

Wendy Price’s Inspirational Plaque with Easel

Our team is always working on out-of-the-box 3D items. You can find even more fantastic projects with supply lists and directions on our website HERE.

In the End… It’s CLEAR, We Love Clear Scraps

Our Design Team is unanimous, we loved these projects.

At first they were timid…you want us to do WHAT?

Then they were worried… can I think of ANYTHING cute to do with this thing?

Finally they were excited! As they’ve shared their projects all week and enjoyed your comments and appreciation, they have really come to love these acrylic surfaces for so many things.

And NOW they’ve outdone themselves.  Sit back, have a terrific cup of coffee and something yummy to eat, because you’re about to be blown away. The projects they’ve created today are incredible!  Be sure to comment on each blog because you get one entry in our prize contest for every comment. We’ll post winners on Monday (or Tuesday…depends how many we have to count) so be sure to check back.

The Fun is Still Going Strong – ClearScraps and Stampendous – Day 5

We’re still enjoying our entire week of blogging with the Design Team at ClearScraps! They have some serious talent over there and our DTs have really stepped up to the plate to bring us some fantastic pieces this week. We have lots more inspiration for you today and tomorrow (Saturday, June 30) is our BIG Blog Hop. Some of the gals have sneeked us a peek at their creations and you’re going to be astonished! Get some good coffee and a yummy treat Saturday morning, because you’re not going to want to move away from the computer for a minute!

To start off our Friday we have another fun project to show you.

Old World Santa by Laura Weed

Sorry for the weird photo, but it’s kind of difficult to photograph the cards when you’ve focused on the “clearness” of it in making it! This card demonstrates several unique properties of stamping with the Clear Scraps products.

One thing I love about stamping on acrylic is that I can see through it. This means that after inking the stamp up with my StazOn ink I can set the stamp rubber side up on the table and place the acrylic on top of it EXACTLY where I want the image positioned.

I can then gently place a piece of scratch paper over the top and rub for a perfect image. The funny thing about StazOn on acrylic is that it takes a bit of time to dry. I’m not particularly patient, but you want to clean the StazOn off your stamps immediately with StazOn cleaner, so cleaning your stamp gives you the perfect amount of time to dry your ink.

My old world Saint Nick came out just perfect!

Another thing I love about the acrylic products is that they come with a protective film on them. I use this film to try out ideas. I thought I wanted to use our Marble Texture Cube on the back of the Santa in StazOn Blazing Red. I decided to try it on the film before committing myself.

Yikes! No…that was too busy and not the look I wanted. So I easily peeled off the protective coating and had a clean slate. I decided to use a bolder side of the texture cube and the Olive StazOn and avoid stamping over Santa’s face.

Santa needed a background and I used the snowflake swirl from the Jumbo Merry and Magical set on a card made from the large 12″ X 12″ sheets of acrylic that Clear Scraps has. Cotton White StazOn was the perfect solution for that, of course.

I used some more white StazOn on a Sponge Dauber to color Santa’s beard white from the back side of the tag. I used another Sponge Dauber and some StazOn Platinum ink to add a bit of a border to the tag. I used a second tag and the Merry and Magical greeting in Black StazOn. To give it some bling, I ran it through my Xyron sticker maker and sprinkled some Gold Halo Glitter Mix on the back and covered the rest of the back with Pearlized Mica Fragments.  I tied the two tags together with some jute twine and attached them to the card front with some pop up Glue Dots. I’m really happy with the result.

Be sure to leave some comments for all the bloggers in the hop today. The prize package is really fantastic. Then hop over to our Facebook page and SHARE one of our Blog posts on your Wall for another chance to win. Then join us tomorrow for the BIG HOP and get one entry for every comment you leave! Plus the folks at Clear Scraps have additional prizes you can win!

It’s Clear To See! Stampendous and Clear Scraps Day 4

We’re having so much fun with the Clear Scraps products we received, and we’re so happy their Design Team is making such beautiful things incorporating our stamps! (We’re in love with several of the projects they’ve posted!)

We’ve loved Clear Scraps for a long time. Here’s a sample one of our designers made when this Yule Penguin Perfectly Clear Stamps Set was brand new

Can you see the acrylic heart in the center? She made it frosty looking by adding some Diamond Glaze or Dimensional Magic in the shape of icicles then covering them with our Multi Crystal Glitter Mix from the Treasures Glitter Kit. She accented parts of the card with that as well as our Cotton Ball White Fun Flock on the furry parts of their hats and sweater.

So definitely hop around the blogs below and find out what the other Designers are doing! We hope you’ve set your alarm clock for Saturday morning, too, because our BIG Blog Hop will blow you away with amazing uses for these fantastic products!

Be sure to comment on the blogs as you visit for a chance to win a cool prize package! And then visit us on Facebook and SHARE this blog post on your wall for another chance to win! Here’s who is hopping today!
