Stampendous Meets Clear Scraps Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Blog Collaboration of Stampendous and Clear Scraps!!  All week long the two Design Teams have crafted their hearts out to show how fabulous these two product lines work together.  

If you just arrived from April Derrick's blog, you're in the right place.  If you just happened upon my blog today and want to view the Blog Hop in it's entirety, please visit Stampendous Impressions to view the hop list.

On Wednesday, I had so much fun creating a card from the Clear Scraps Send It Clear Cards.  You can check out my post HERE.

Today I am sharing a Clear Scraps Sassy 8 x 8 album.  First of all,  Clear Scraps products are COMPLETELY clear (just as the name says).  Everything is protected with a thin film that peels off before use.  Clear Scraps albums and cards take all sorts coloring mediums well, as you will soon see below.  



















My completed album.  I stamped the Stampendous Cling Jumbo Songird onto the cover of the Clear Scraps album with Tsukineko's Black Stazon.  I let that dry a bit, layered Tsukineko's Glazon over the Stazon.





















Once the Glazon was dry, that allowed color to be added to the image.  In this case, I used Copic Sketch Markers.

















For my next page, color was added with the Copic Air Brush System to cover the entire clear page.  Alcohol ink is transparent, so it just added some color to "liven" up the page but still be transparent.

























On the same clear page,  the Stampendous Cling Jumbo Tulip was stamped with Tsukineko Metallic Platinum Stazon.  I wanted to add color to the Cling Jumbo Tulip.  On the back side of the transparent page, I spritzed Tsukineko's Goosebumps and spread it to the desired area's with a paint brush.  I then sprinkled Stampendous Color Fragments where I wanted.  Once the Goosebumps dried, my Color Fragments stayed in place.  I am in love with the soft pastel colors of Stampendous Chiffon, Sage and Powder Blue Color Fragments.



















On the last page of the album, I had some fun with a few different Tsukineko's inks, Cotton White Stazon, Black Stazon and Versamark Watermark Ink.    I stamped the Stampendous Cling Jumbo Dogwood with Black Stazon and the accent image included with the Dogwood set with Cotton White Stazon.  The beautiful flourish from the Cling Jumbo Tulip set was stamped with Versamark Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Stampendous Detail Copper Embossing Powder.


























In the back of the clear page, I used Stampendous Boss Gloss in the handy bottle dauber, to place embossing ink in precise areas.  I applied embossing ink to the petals and sprinkled Vintage Lilac Embossing Tinsel and Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel to the desired areas.

























Here is  a closer look.
