Clear Scraps | Peace Tall and Slim Card

Hello crafty friends! Today, I would like to share with a tall and slim card. It has been a while I haven’t made this type of card and I had fun making this one.

This month, Clear Scraps is having a cross promo with TapeRunner. And today is my turn. On Clear Scraps Blog, I am sharing step-by-step tutorial how to make this Peace tall and slim card using the Fern Branch Chipboard Shape Embellishment and 6″ Fruit of the Spirit Stencil.

I cut out the tall and slim card base using Silhouette Cameo 3. For the background mat, I trimmed a piece of scrapbook paper into 3″ x 8 7/8″ and then I distressed one edge of the paper with my distresser tool (if you don’t have this tool, you can also use scissors, but be very careful!). I added the paper on the card with the TapeRunner.

I taped the 6″ Fruit of the Spirit Stencil on the card using painter tape. I also taped around the word and then using make up sponge, I added the two shades of green VersaFine Clair Pigment Inks on the card. I removed the stencil to clean the ink of the stencil.

I dried the pigment ink on the card with craft heater, then I added some anti-static powder on it. I taped stencil back on the card. Using the Ranger Embossing Dauber, I added the clear embossing ink on the word. I removed the stencil carefully of the card and sprinkled some of the Ranger Fine Clear Embossing Powder on the word, then heat set the powder with craft heater.

I cut the Fern Branch Chipboard Shape Embellishment with scissors of its frame. Using the same embossing dauber, I covered the chipboard surface with the clear embossing ink. I put the inked fern branch on top of a coffee filter, and then sprinkled the WOW! Trio Bundled Up Embossing Glitter (Sage) on it. I poured the whole jar on it to make sure it was covered well with the embossing powder. I tapped off the embossing powder on the coffee filter and I pour the rest of the embossing powder inside the jar.

I preheated my craft heater for couple seconds and then heat set the embossing powder. It was super fun to watch the embossing powder melt on the chipboard. I added the embossed fern branch on the card with the TapeRunner. And then, I embellished the card with some pearl gems I have in my stash.

Hope you like this one and find an inspiration to create today. Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have wonderful day!

Clear Scraps | Rainbow Birthday Cards

Hello everyone… I love creating background for my cards and using stencil is one of my favorite techniques. And today, I would like to share these two rainbow birthday cards. 

I am sharing the step-by-step tutorial to make these 2 birthday cards using the 6×6 Party Stencil at Clear Scraps Blog today.

I used the same steps to create the backgrounds on both cards. The first card is a shaker card.

I taped the stencil directly on top of a piece of white cardstock that I already trimmed to fit on my front card.

For the rainbow colors, I only used 3 primary color inks: red, yellow, and blue. I used Catherine Pooler Inks (Rockin’ Red, Tiara, Something Borrowed). I added the ink with blending brush one color at a time and then blended the two primary colors to get the secondary colors.

After that, I removed the stencil off the cardstock, and then I sprayed it lightly with water using the Distress Sprayer bottle. I dabbed the water off the paper with paper towel and then I dried it with craft heater. Then, I repeated the same steps to make the second background panel.

I cut out one of the background panels using on for the stitched scallop circle die from Craftin Desert Divas.

I cut out a piece of clear acetate out of an old packing box. I used Scor-Tape to secure the acetate piece on the circle window.

Next, I added 3D fun foam on the back of the panel using the Scor-Tape and then added more double sided tape on top of the fun foam.

I trimmed a piece of blue cardstock to use it as front card mat. I added it on top of a white card with Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive Glue.

I added some sequins in the middle of the card and then I added the stenciled background panel right on top of it. I pressed it firmly to make sure the taped adhered well.

For the sentiment, I used the Today and Everyday Stamp Set from Divinity Designs. I stamped a sentiment on a white cardstock with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink pad, dried the ink and then cut it with the Double-Stitched Pennant Flag Die. I added the sentiment pennant on the card with 3D foam tape.

And for the second card, it is a very simple and quick card. I added the stenciled background panel on a piece of red carstock mat with Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive Glue. Then, I added them on top of a white card with the same permanent adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) on another white cardstock with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink pad, and then I cut it with Double-Stitched Circle Die. I added the sentiment label on the card with 3D foam tape.

I hope these cards spark an inspiration. There are many stencils at Clear Scraps store that you can use to make handmade cards. Check them out!

Thursday Coffee Break | Have Faith, Stay Strong 3D Card

Hello everyone! It’s Thursday… It is time to take a little coffee break with me. To be honest with you all, I really need a good break after all this “stay at home” situation. Simply, having a girls’ night out with my girl-friends will do. We love to just go out, have coffee, dinner, and talk talk talk.

But… My friends… we all are maybe feeling stuck and helpless right, still have faith that things will get better and stay strong because we all are in this together.

“And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God.”
‭‭Mark‬ ‭11:22‬ ‭ESV‬‬

I made this card for you all today for the Thursday Coffee Break at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog.

On my card today, I used Peony Hugs Digital Stamp Set and Wild & Whimsy Digital Paper Pack from Graciellie Design.

I colored them with SN Illustrator Markers and Sparkle Clear Brush.

Visit my post at Coffee Loving Blog for a simple tutorial how to make the 3D shape on the mug.

I hope this will bring joy and hope in your heart, and smiles on your face today. May you all have a caffeinated, fabulous. Thank you so much for stopping by!

“Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭27:14‬ ‭ESV‬‬
