Clear Scraps | DIY Love Chipboard Wreath

Hello everyone… It’s time to change the decoration from Winter theme to Love theme becuase the Valentine’s Day is less than a month from today.

I am sharing this project on the Clear Scraps Blog today with all the details how to make it.

On this Love Wreath, I use the new Clear Scraps – Love Large Chipboard Embellishment. For the wreath base, I used a paper mache wreath base that I wrapped it with burlap ribbon. I used glue gun to secure the ribbon on the wreath base.

I used scrapbook paper to dress up the chipboard letters. And I used the Beacon Zip Dry Glue to add the scrapbook paper on the letters. I used craft sanding block to distress the edges of the chipboard letters. And I had some of these pompom ribbons and paper flowers in my stash to use on the wreath, too.

There are LOTS of new amazing products on the Clear Scraps Store that are released this month. I promise you will LOVE them!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a fabulous day!

DIY Snowflakes Bulb Ornament Pallet Wood Sign

Hello everyone! Christmas Day is 4 days away from today! And I am here today with another Christmas project idea that you can create for this Holidays home decor.

I made this Snowflakes Bulb Ornament Pallet Wood Sign using the Bulb Medium DIY Pallet Shape and 6″ Nordic Snowflakes Stencil. I am sharing the tutorial with pictures at Clear Scraps Blog today.

I started with painted the Bulb Medium DIY Pallet Shape with Metallic Antique Gold acrylic paint and foam brush with 2 coats. I let the first coat to dry at least 30 minutes and then I added the second coat. I set it aside to dry completely.

Next, I mixed the Snow Writer paste with extra fine Crystal Diamond glitter on my craft mat with pallet knife to give extra bling to the snow flake.

I put the 6″ Nordic Snowflakes Stencil on top of the painted bulb ornament pallet wood shape. While I held it down, I added the snow glitter paste on it with the pallet knife. I moved it around until the whole wood surface got covered. This texture paste needs about an hour to dry completely, more if you have thicker paste on it.

I made the red bow out of wired ribbon from my stash and Beacon All-Purpose Glue. I added the bow on that painted bulb ornament pallet wood with the same glue. This glue gun. And it is done. 

This project is easy and fun to make for the Holidays home decor. Check out Clear Scraps store for various designs of the DIY pallet wood shape and stencils.

Handmade Christmas Card and Ornament

Hello hello hello… Today, I would like to share couple handmade gift ideas with you.

Today, I am sharing these watercolored ornament card and ornament slice at Joy Clair Blog. They can be gift ideas that you can make.

I use the Vintage Christmas Ornaments stamp set to create this CAS Christmas card. I stamped the ornaments with Antique Linen Distress Ink on a watercolor paper 140 lbs. I did not use any masks to create that stacked ornaments becuase when I painted them with watercolor paper, the Distress ink reacted with the water and blended in. But if you use non reacted dye inks or pigment inks, you will need the masks.

I painted the ornaments with Shimmerz Inklingz Watercolors (I’m Not Limon, Blue My Mind, and Good As Gold). These watercolor paints have the shimmering, metallic look. I dried the paints with craft heater, and then I sprayed it with some water using the Distress Sprayer. I dabbed the water off with paper towel to get more distressed, vintage look on them.

I added some extra gold splatters on the background with the Good As Gold Shimmerz Inklingz. After that, I dried it again with craft heater and cut it with Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I stamped the ornament again three times (just the top of the ornament) on a white cardstock with VersaMark Ink Pad and then I added some silver embossing powder. I heat set the embossing powder with craft heater and then fussy cut them with scissors. I added them on the ornaments with dries-clear permanent glue. I drew the stings with Posca Metallic Silver Paint Marker.

I stamped the sentiment on one of the ornament using MISTI with Delicata Silver Ink Pad, and then I stamped it again with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink Pad. I dried ink with craft heater. I added this finished background on top of a green card base with 3D foam tape for extra dimension to all the ornament caps.

Second handmade gift than you can make with Joy Clair Stamps is this chalkboard wood slice Christmas ornament. On this wood, I used The Reason Stamp Set and Snowy Greetings Stamp Set.

First, to paint the base color. I used Chalk Paint for the base. The paint dries fairy quickly. I usually paint the base twice, but if once is enough for you and that is okay, too.

To give the white chalk look on the background, I dibbed my finger in a white paint and lightly painted on the chalkboard. I had wet (not too wet) paper towel to remove the paint so not too much on the background.

I stamped the images and sentiment on both side with white acrylic paint, too. I put the stamp on acrylic stamping block and I added the paint with mini brayer. I put the stamp directly in a bowl with warm water so the paint won’t dried on the stamp and will be easy to clean.

I tied up the twine and done. You have a handmade Christmas ornament that you can also mass-produce this ornament as gifts.

I hope these projects give you some ideas to get crafty this Holidays. What would you make for this Holidays?
