Stenciled Silhouette Card using the December Clear Scraps Kit

Hi Clear Scraps friends!  Today I'm sharing a card that I made using the Clear Scraps Rustic Forest Stencil that came in the Creating Made Easy December kit,
Inks from my stash and a card base from my stash.  This is a fun card to make because it's almost  like water coloring with a
stencil and you can make a fun scene by using your creativity and imagination.

To make this card I started with the background.  I taped a large punched circle on the upper center of my white card
stock and used a dauber to start rubbing in color around the circle.  Add colors until you have your background built.
Remove the punched circle and lightly rub some color into the white space.


Your final step will be to add your trees and animals using black ink to give your card a night time silhouette effect.
Randomly place the animals where you like them and simply using a dauber and black ink rub over the stencil.


Your card is finished, you can add ribbon, stamped sentiment or any embellishments of choice to finish your card.
 Be sure to stop by tomorrow for another fun project I created using the Creating Made Easy December Kit.

Clear Scraps Tri Fold Scallop Frame

Hello friends!   Today I'm  sharing a frame project I created using Clear Scraps Tri Fold Scallop Frame.
I used a Vintage wedding theme for this fun album, however I left some of the page blank until I get the perfect photos for it.
The first photo is the front cover. I let the clear acrylic peak out around the edges. Lots of layering and fussy cutting complete this
fun frame album.  Below are close-ups and details. If you have any questions please feel free to respond below and I will answer.

Clear Scraps Windmill Layout

Hi Friends!  Many of you don't know this about me but I live in big beautiful Wyoming where there are many everyday things
that happen that city people might consider unusual.  For instance this cattle drive right up the frontage road next to the interstate.
Sounds dangerous and it is but we have lots of trained cowboys who manage to do this without any mishaps.  They are fun to watch
and fun to live around!  You can see horses being ridden down your street at any given time so needless to say it's cowboy country!
Today I'm sharing a layout of that very happening.
IMG_3376
 To make this layout I began building the base or background. I did that by tearing strips and adhering them to the
left edge of my base. I used a Clears Scraps Stencil for some added texture to the background.
The stencil I used is the 6" Damask. For even more texture I added copper embossing powder to the modeling paste
Next adhere your photos and your photo mats.
To embellish the windmill I inked it with  brown chalk ink and then embossed it with
copper embossing powder.  I used the frame for the photo and used the same technique for the frame
around the photo.
IMG_3373
To finish your layout add a little chicken wire stamping and flowers.  This layout is fun and uses several
easy techniques.

projects by our design team!!
