Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Many Birthday Blessings Card featuring Adhesive Sheets

I'm on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®'s Blog! Sending many birthday blessings through this layered card I created featuring their Adhesives Sheets. Not only can you die cut with these sheets but you can easily carry them to your craft gatherings without the bulk of a machine or tool (LOVE that!!).

First I die cut my pieces with patterned paper (card panel and frame) and cardstock (background accent piece and sentiment).

I applied my background accent piece with Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6" by pulling the liner back, placing the die cut on the sticky white surface and then placing back the liner to rub the die cut between the two sheets. Remove the liner and pull off the die cut (with its back covered in adhesive). Center the die cut on top of the card panel.

Next apply the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser on the back of card panel and adhere to A2 size card base.

Add adhesive on the back of the frame die cut using the process as background accent piece with the Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6" and center the die cut onto the card panel.

Stamp the sentiment onto the die cut and add 3D Foam Squares - Black, Regular on the back. Center onto the frame die cut on card panel.

Add trinket butterfly pin on an angle behind on the lower left side of frame die cut (the adhesive sheet adhesive will secure it as well as the Dodz Adhesive Dots 3D as explained below).

For the finishing touch, place a Dodz Adhesive Dots 3D on the back of a flower embellishment and place on top of the trinket butterfly pin.

Here's another look at the finished card!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Forever Wedding Card Using Adhesive Sheets

Today I'm up on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog!! One of my favorite adhesives to use on die cuts is their Adhesive Sheets. For those intricate designs, it is a life-saver and a time-saver! With the etched dies (aka thin wafer dies), it cuts like butah - leaves no mess on you & on your dies.

I trimmed a piece of white cardstock that fit my die and then applied Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6" to the back. Trim the excess adhesive sheet off and run through your manual die cutting machine. Cuts with no problem/no residue and no mess :)  They come in three sizes: 4 x 6", 6 x 12" and 12 x 12".

Next I worked on my background, I colored my card base with Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® (Raspberry, Watermelon and Mango). Then blended with a baby wipe to achieve that trendy watercolor look.

While the card base dries, I die cut my sentiment "Forever" with textured gold cardstock and Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6". Just repeat my earlier step with the background die cuts.

Next I used my test paper (I tested my Gelatos® color combination on a piece of white cardstock) and trimmed to 1.5 x 4.25" strip. After I edged the strip with Raspberry Gelatos®, I applied adhesive on the back with Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6".

I wanted to create interest with the sentiment so I colored my looped threaded wire with Pigment Powder Pink (I rubbed the wire with left over Adhesive Sheet before coloring). Small flowers were layered with Dodz™ Adhesive Dots Medium. All were secured with Dodz™ Adhesive Dots 3D.

Lastly, adhere the sentiment, add touches of purple glitter to the flower center and background.

Here's another look at the card.

Love Adhesive Sheets - no need to bring a tool, stores flat and is lightweight. Perfect to bring to a crop, class or crafternoon.

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Always Remember Card with Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape Background

Happy Sunday! Today is my turn on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog :) I am featuring the Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape Ash and Oak Set from Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® line. Can you see where it is?

Using Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape Ash and Oak set, I covered a piece of white cardstock with Oak tape. Then cut it with Spellbinders® Matting Basics A Die #6 (the smallest size die is #1), using my Platinum™ Die Cutting Machine to create a card panel.

To adhere my piece of 5.25" Textured Ribbons White Burlap, I used Premium Double-Sided Tape 1" Permanent and placed it horizontally across the card panel.

Next I stamped an image from Spellbinders Always Remember Stamp and Die Set over a light patterned paper. To die cut, I placed the coordinating die from the same set and went through my machine. Adhere on top of the ribbon on the card panel with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser.

With the leaf die templates, I cut with patterned paper to use as accents. Place them on the left side of the stamped die cut on the card panel with a Dodz™ Adhesive Dots Medium.

Using Dodz™ Adhesive Dots XL, I rolled Crocheted Scalloped Eyelet Trim from the Lace Ribbons round and round until I got the desired look. Just place on top of the leaf accent die cuts on the card panel.

With the Crafty Foam Tape White, adhere the card panel on top of a 6 x 5" card base.

Now it's ready to be sent to someone special!

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Fringed 4th of July Card Tutorial

Today I have a birthday card for America on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog! I wanted to create a card that had movement so I took out my fringe scissors and went to town with my strips of red, white and blue patterned papers. Using my Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products to adhere everything all together. What do you think?

After I cut my fringes, I used Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8" Permanent on the back edge of each fringe and adhered onto my white A2-sized (4.25 x 5.5 inches) card base.

I fussy cut the sentiment and stars from patterned papers. Then with the Dual Tip Glue Pen, I placed the stars onto the sentiment and let dry.

For more dimension and not to flatten the fringes, I used 3D Foam Squares - White, Regular on the back of the sentiment. Take off the liner and center on the card front.

The finishing touch of glitter in the centers of the stars and it's ready to go! Another look...

Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend all!!

Gel Press: Patriotic Tags Trio Tutorial

More and more I see makers using the gel presses to create beautiful projects in the paper crafting world (think mono-printing plate). I was at a consumer show last month where I met/saw Sally Lynn McDonald from Gel Press® by PolyGel® showcasing their plates. I was intrigued :) AND it didn't help that she was demo-ing right next to me! LOL!!!

So what did I do? I bought one! LOL! The one I purchased was the 8 x 10" Plate - perfect for art journaling and for card making. They also have other sizes from 12 x 14" to petite sizes (click Featured Products for size information). This is what I ended up making...

I started with two colors of Testors Craft® Acrylic 2 oz. Craft Paints in Stop Sign (red) and Island Breeze (blue) both in matte finish. You just need a little and a brayer to spread the colors across - just enough to cover my tags.

For one tag, I just press down for a trio color look. The second one, after I rolled on color, I drew my texture card across to make strips. The third, I pressed excess paint from the other two and make a tie-dyed background. I love each one of them :)

To create my fireworks design (the tie-dyed background tag), I cut Make a Wish die, trimmed off the stem and colored with red glitter. I repeated for the blue one. This idea was inspired by my talented friend Debi Adams (thanks Debi xo)!!

For "USA" I cut Font One Uppercase with 3D Foam Creative Sheets (cuts like butter!) and took off the top liner to rub Pigment Powder Gold for shimmer. Then I centered the letters on the tag by taking off the back liner. SO EASY!

Used Dodz Adhesives Dots Small to make those fireworks stick! Love that the adhesive dots have liners...so much easier to handle and no tearing of my die cuts.

For my stars and stripes tag, I used a bunch of 3D Foam Stars all over and colored them using a combination of Pigment Powder Gold and Blue.

The Happy Birthday tag, I placed patterned paper on top of a piece of 3D Creative Foam Sheet (after removing the top liner). Then put the die on top covered foam sheet to cut with a manual die cutting machine.

I used the America the Beautiful die to cut patterned paper and applied adhesive on the back using Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6". You can also apply the adhesive sheet on the back of the patterned paper and die-cut (won't damage the die).

After I assembled the pieces, I stamped the sentiments and added sequins with Dodz Adhesive Dots Small to the tag. Here's another look at each one...

I hope you enjoyed my process and thanks for sticking with me till the end - LOL!!
