Creating a Die Cut Window Card

 

Greetings die cut fans, today I am excited to share my first creation for Dies R Us .  The cheery card features Sizzix's Geo Trio.   As I am always looking at new way to use my dies, I decided to try cutting my die in a "repeating" fashion to create multiple windows!  





I was in a "purple' mood and chose purple shades for my 5 x 7 card, but you can easily adapt the card to any color or size. So lets get started. 

Start by cutting a piece of white cardstock to 4 3/4 x 6 1/2. Die cut along one edge leaving a small border.   Re-position die leaving about the width on one hexagon and re-die cut as shown. below. 


Re-position die and die cut to create the third window. 
Move and die cut again to create the 4th window.  
The resulting die cut is so pretty and lacy! 
.
Grab your card stock in 2 coordinating colors.  Choose one piece to mat your die cut piece.  Cut mat to 6 3/4 x 4 7/8.  From your second cardstock, cut two pieces that are 4 3/4 x 1 1/2
Using your ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever with the No Clog Writing Tip, add a few dots of adhesive on the back side of your die cut piece and adhere strips of card stock as shown. 



Matt die cut onto your cardstock.  

Finish your card by adhering to a 5 x 7 card base and adding a jeweled flower sprig and a sticker sentiment.   I hope you enjoyed this project!

Earth Day Celebration tag

 


Greetings!  Today I am excited to share this tag i created to celebrate Earth Day with ScraPerfect #ScraPerfectgetsdowntoEarth.  Working in the field of Environmental Health, I love Earth Day.

Start by cutting patterned paper slightly smaller than your tag. Adhere to your tag with ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever with No Clog Writing Cap.  The No Clog Writing Cap allows you to add just a small amount of adhesive!


Start by die cutting die cut your erath and then ink with gold ink. 

Adhere to your tag with ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever with No Clog Writing Cap.  The No Clog Writing Cap allows you to get adhesive on those super thin lines! 

Earth day is all about not using more than you need and re-using and re-purposing items.  So I choose to re-color a metal charm I had using a gold sharpie!  

After attaching my re-purposed charm to a tied jute bow, I added just a small dollop of  ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever 

Add chipboard stickers to earth.  Knowing one of my stickers was not going to have any paper behind it, I de-stickied the butterfly using my ScraPerfect’s Perfect Crafting Pouch


Adhere a scrap of lace to the bottom of your tag using your ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever with No Clog Writing Cap



I hope you are inspired to get creative with your ScraPerfect Supplies!

Wildlife Safari Thank You Card

 



This month the design team was challenged to create projects with a nature theme.  What's screams nature more than this gorgeous wildlife scene? I have had the Wildlife Zebra Lion Giraffe Elephant Collage Scene Rubber Stamp for a little while just waiting to be played with. THis month's theme was a perfect excuse to break it out and play!
Blank Page Muse Supplies needed include:

Other supplies include: Watercolor paper, grey archival ink, distress inks, water brush , card stock, sentiment sticker


Start by stamping your Wildlife Zebra Lion Giraffe Elephant Collage Scene Rubber Stamp  onto the BACK SIDE of a piece a water color paper. The front side is more textured and if you stamp the front side a stamp this detail will look broken as you can see below. 


Stamping on the back side will make blending the inks a little less easy but look at the image below!


Add distress inks in sunset/sunrise colors throughout the background. I created a large round focal point to serve as my sun. 

Using distress inks and a water brush color your wildlife as desired.  mat your finished image onto black and then again on Kraft card stock.  Tie a jute bow around matted stamped image and add to your card base.  Finish by adding a sticker sentiment.

Easter Shaker Magnet

 



Easter Greetings!  Today I am excited to share this cute Shaker Egg I created to adorn my fridge!  Featuring the Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Easter Egg,  I love that this shaker allowed me to embellish each section differently! 

Start by painting your Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Easter Egg.  I painted the base several shades lighter than my top. 





Once dry, Assemble your middle layers of your Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Easter Egg


The zig zags in the Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Easter Egg create 3 different sections you can fill.  Fill each section as desired, covering the other sections to create the 3 different colored sections. 

 

Add your clear acrylic to your shaker box.  Don't forget to remove the protective cocering from both sides of the acrylic. 

Add painted top layer and a sticker sentiment to the front.  You can then add to a card, a layout or attach a magnet to the back and hang on your fridge!  I hope you enjoyed this project!

Alice in Wonderland Themed Teapot

 



I love Alice in Wonderland Themed items. Today I am excited to share this Alice themed Teapot I created using my Clear Scraps Teapot Chipboard Album.   I admit that this Teapot Chipboard Album.  was one of the very first items from Clear Scraps.  I always knew I wanted to create a Alice themed project with it, but could never find the "right" idea or papers etc.  So I decided to mix up an entire paper collection

To recreate to project you will need  one page from the Clear Scraps Teapot Chipboard Album, Alice in Wonderland themed papers, and some modge podge or sealer. 

Start by detail cutting out some of the characters to use as embellishments on your project. 

 

Tear your patterned paper into small pieces.  Adhere to your  Clear Scraps Teapot Chipboard Album. 




Continue adding the torn paper to the teapot until the entire page is covered. . 


Once dry, trim the edges of your teapot. Begin adding your detail cut characters and items you cut as embellishments to your teapot. 



Continue to add your pieces until your project is finished.  I hope you enjoyed this easy project!

Adding Foiled Accents to your Greeting Cards

 



Does anyone else buy magazines that have paper packs included with them? I always intend to use them but then I never do.  Well today I want to share how I "dressed" them up a bit with foiled accents from ScraPerfect! But first I want to share how I store all my ScraPerfect Transfer Foils. 

I use a DVD "stamp Storage" case.   all my sheets fit perfectly and dont get "stuck" to other things or bent up and they are so easy to store. Just open the case when you need one and close again! And it takes up almost no space! 


Now on to your project! Grab a pre-printed Fairy Card. 


While the original is very pretty, Fairies need sparkle so.....grab your Best Glue Ever with No-Clog Writing Cap and apply thin lines where you want to add foiling!  I chose the fairies skirt and wings. let you glue dry to clear. 

Grab your ScraPerfect Transfer Foils and lay on your "dried" glue. Quickly pull up! Add more fooiling as desired. 


Assemble you card using your Best Glue Ever with No-Clog Writing Cap.  I love that I never have to switch adhesives during my creative process! 


Apply a thin line of ScraPerect's  Best Glue Ever using your No-Clog Writing Cap.  Allow to dry slightly. Add pearl accents to card. 



Add some dimension to your greeting by adding ScraPerfect's your Best Glue Ever onto a piece of craft foam and adhering to the back side of your greeting! Add "popped up greeting to your card to finish! 


I hope you are inspired to get creative with your ScraPerfect supplies!
