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.
