Stamped and Painted Mirror DIY Gift Tag – a Clearsnap + Clear Scraps Hop

For the next three days the Clearsnap team and the Clear Scraps team are partnering up to share inspiring projects using clear and mirror surfaces from Clear Scraps and ink from Clearsnap. I know, the names are confusing and a few times people have confused the companies for one another. That's why we thought it'd be really cool to team up and share our products together! I received a nice assortment of Clear Scraps product to use with the Clearsnap ink that I was sent since I have worked with Clearsnap for over five years now. A couple years ago Clearsnap introduced their own line of solvent ink, ColorBox Surfacez. This ink will stamp onto almost any non-porous surface, like mirror, plastic, and vinyl, as well as traditional stamping surfaces like paper. It's kind of made for stuff like everything Clear Scraps makes! I decided to show off the non-porous properties of Clearsnap's ColorBox Surfacez as well as Smooch Accent Ink on a stamped and painted mirror DIY gift tag:

This Clear Scraps mirror frame was stamped with a Zenspirations stamp using ColorBox Surfacez ink in Black. The ink dries almost instantly. After the ink was dry, I painted the stamped image with Smooch Accent Ink in various colors, using a heat gun to dry the ink completely. Here's how I created this project:

You can really dress up a tag, a mini book, or any other Clears Scraps item in the same way, using ColorBox Surfacez ink and Smooch Accent to add color. In the video, I also used Surfacez Cleaner to get the stamp completely clean after stamping with ColorBox Surfacez ink.
