How To Make A Fantastic, Colorful Rainbow Card

Charity here from Scrappin' Chaos with a colorful rainbow card made from fantastic 3-D glossy gel. Best Glue Ever holds the sheer strips of color to the cardstock without leaving a smear. Craft foam is cut to umbrella size and held securely with more Best Glue Ever.
 The first step is to paint the glossy gel onto a non-stick surface. I used plastic product wrapping. For an even surface use a pallet knife; for a more textured approach a paintbrush works well. The product takes a few hours to dry, depending on the thickness. Once the product is dry peel it from the plastic and cut or shape as desired. I ran the dried, yellow gel through my die-cut machine. I die-cut a boots and umbrella figure from tissue paper and painted an additional die-cut umbrella with the yellow gloss.
 I used pale pink folded cardstock for the card blank. Using a paint brush I applied two colors of glossy gel to simulate a puddle.
I cut the legs off the tissue paper figure and glued them to the card front. Best Glue Ever adhered the tissue paper directly to the glossy gel puddle with no trouble at all.
More dots of Best Glue Ever, precisely placed with the No-Clog Writing Cap, hold the die-cut boots to the tissue paper. Even though the boots are sheer, Best Glue Ever holds them down without a smear or discoloring mark.
The coat portion of the tissue paper is lined with craft foam and then attached to the card, over the legs. Another helping of craft foam lines the yellow umbrella. Best Glue Ever holds the umbrella down, attaching craft foam to tissue paper easily.
The strips of color that compose the rainbow are peeled, trimmed, and stacked to form a single band. Best Glue Ever holds the rainbow to the card. The edges are trimmed after the rainbow is placed.
In my region rain almost always means mushrooms. I applied 3-D glossy gel through a stencil to create pink mushrooms. A toothpick and white glossy gel give the mushroom caps their spots and fill in the stalk.
This mixed media rainbow card has so many bright colors it glows with happiness. Best Glue Ever ensures messy spots and smears don't get in the way. The No-Clog Writing Cap puts Best Glue Ever exactly where it is wanted.
Stop by my blog Scrappin' Chaos for a list of supplies.

How to Make a Gorgeous Serving Tray with Dew Drops and ScraPerfect

Becky Conley's tray has been featured on the Simon Says Stamp blog , but we've got the details!

She decorated an tray using a multitude of the MANY colorful choices of Dew Drops by The Robin's Nest and the performance of The Best Glue Ever! with assistance from a mighty tool: Embellie Gellie,

Here's the finished tray -

And here's where she started --

Becky painted a wooden tray with white paint, then covered the tray with a layer of the Best Glue Ever. Once the glue was dry and completely clear she used Embellie Gellie to help her place the Dew Drops.  To make it easier she started by gluing her design first, then worked on the background.

You can see her work in progress --

Here is a link where the Embellie Gellie can be purchased. 

The center of the flower is beginning to take shape. 

A close up of the center shows how truly beautiful it is with the sealer on it. 

The tray is almost completed, and it's gorgeous. 

When the tray was totally covered with Dew Drops, she squeezed 3d Crystal Lacquer all over, concentrating on filling in between the Dew Drops. After the lacquer was dry, Becky applied epoxy over the top of the design about 1/4" the top of the Dew Drops to ensure the surface was level.

For a complete list of the supplies she used, including which Dew Drops for each part of the flower check out Becky's blog!

How the Best Glue Ever Helps Make a Fall Greeting Card

Janet from Try it - Like it - Create it uses The Best Glue while making a card for Fall.

This fall card is a size A2 which when folded is 4.25"wide x 5.5"tall with the fold at the top. I wanted to make a card that had a slight see-through window. Notice the white showing through the leaves. Here is the process I used. 

I started with the leaves cut from a die and the cardstock cut for the card.

I used The Best Glue Ever to piece everything together.

Don't forget the details!

If you would like more information and detailed measurements, you can find them on Try it - Like it - Create it. I really hope you will visit and see what I have been up too lately.

How to Create Clean and Simple Cards Using a "Recipe"

Hello and welcome to the blog!  Today I am sharing my latest cards and sharing the "recipe" that I use as the basis for all of my card making!

I found this terrific, colorful paper in my stash and it really needed very little embellishment with the bold graphic pattern - but I did choose my sentiment wisely!

Best Glue Ever is the only glue you need for card making - paper and embellishments go on easily - no wrinkled paper and it "grabs" quickly - clear drying under those opaque embellishments!

Here is my card base "recipe":

  • Card base - Cardstock cut to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 folded in half 
  • Mat - Cardstock cut to 4 x 5-1/4
  • Embellishment Base - Cardstock or patterned paper cut to 3-3/4 x 5

All my cards start with this recipe and it is so easy to build on it!

For this card, I machine stitched around the patterned paper - but hand drawn faux stitches would work just as well!

As I layer and attach each layer, I press and smooth using the Perfect Cleaning Cloth to keep the oils and misc. craft mess from my hands from getting on my project!

Before stamping my sentiments, I always like to tap my cardstock with the Perfect Crafting Pouch to insure a crisp image.

A few Dew Drops (I am using the Dew Drop Mix in Primary) added for a bit of dimension and sparkle - so easy to apply tiny embellishments when you are using Best Glue Ever with the No-Clog Writing Cap!

And that's all there is to it!  I hope you find my card base recipe helps you in your card making!

Thanks for stopping by today!

The Best Brush Cleaner Ever!

Good morning everyone, Kim here today with my next DT post for ScraPerfect~
I wanted to share an amazing tip with you today featuring The Best Cleaner Ever! 

If you are like me, and well, make a mess while Art-ing, then you are going to love this tip. I use lots of paint brushes for lots of different things and sometimes, well, ok, most of the time, I forget to clean them. The Best Cleaner Ever has become my new best friend!

I take my messy brushes and add a few squirts of The Best Cleaner Ever to them,wait a few moments, rinse, and Voila! My brushes are magically cleaned back to their original state.   For stubborn brushes, I squirt some of the cleaner on and leave it over night, and then rinse in the morning.

The bristles are soft and ready for my next project!

The Best Cleaner Ever has become my new best friend in my craft room!

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to check out the ScraPerfect Store for all the great products they sell!

How To Adhere Thin Diecuts

Hey there!
Lisa back today to share a card with you.
What do you use to adhere thin diecuts to your projects?
I found the perfect combo- The Best Glue Ever and the No Clog Writing Cap!
Here's my card:

See how intricate this diecut is?

See how fine the applicator tip is on the No Clog Writing Cap? It's perfect for adding glue to this diecut!

I like to pop up my embellies with craft foam and The Best Glue Ever is perfect for this. It dries(and holds) super fast!

I love how this card turned out and I love my ScraPerfect products!
