Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: How to Embellish Valentine Twist Pop-Up Card

Today I am on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog with this fun card! Using E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser and Thin 3D Foam Squares - Mix Black, I made a Valentine Twist Pop-Up Card. If you search "Twist Pop-Up Card Tutorial" on the internet, there will be a few to choose from. I used: Twist Pop-Up Card Tutorial by SplitCoast Stampers.

**As a part of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Design Team, I receive products for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use :) **


I assembled the mechanics and card base with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. It is a strong, permanent, clear double-sided adhesive that can handle paper construction like this.


For the pop-up panel: I cut 2.5 x 3.5 inch red paper for each panel. One was layered with stickers and inked edges with Fired Brick ink (all the red papers were inked the same). The second, I added stickers on a 2.25 x 3.25 inch patterned paper panel.


I added a sticker and 3D Foam Key shape. Simply remove the liner and rub in the Pigment Powder Brown to "Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside" for a shimmery effect.


The last panel, I die-cut a heart into the red paper and added a sticker sentiment in the lower right corner. Next fill small flower sequins into the Keepsake Envelopes Mix small size and close the flap. The sequins will fall out as they are TINY so apply E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser around the edges of the envelope and (back of) heart window to seal. Place it over the heart window from the back side. Add Thin 3D Foam Squares - Mix Black and center onto the brown panel.


Add the rest of the red panels on the brown pop-up panel using E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. Then place onto the twist mechanics of the card base.


Repeat the same shaker instructions for the card front with Keepsake Envelopes Mix medium size and a large heart die. Add Creative Photo Corners Gold on each corner of Card Panel. Oh, later I decided to add red glitter to 3D Foam Hearts in the center for some sparkle! LOL!


Here's what it looks on the inside...

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Snowy Kisses Gift Bag Tutorial

Today I'm up on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog :) I wanted to create a "sweet" gift bag of kisses leftover from the holidays, using Bo Bunny's Winter Wishes Collection with our E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesives Dispenser for my vellum accent pieces. I'm also using Thin 3D Foam Squares - Mix Black and E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips to put everything else together.


Gathering up my materials, this is what I will be using...


With a 5.0 x 5.5 in. piece of Icicles paper, I adhered a strip of vellum that I cut from the Winter Wishes Foil Vellum Paper with E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesives Dispenser - seriously cannot see the adhesive on this vellum! Using the same adhesive, I ran a strip across (and a little on the back) and placed my Lace Ribbon on top and folded the ends in the back. Set aside.


I wanted a subtle dimension to my panel so I pulled out my Thin 3D Foam Squares - Mix Black and placed a few in the back of my die cuts. Set aside.


Now to work on the layers, first the tree die cut was adhered by E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips and placed over the frame on the right side. Then add the foamed girl die cut on the left with a little overlap.


I adhered a vellum accent (cut from the same vellum as the foiled strip) with E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesives Dispenser and placed on top of the tree die cut.


Taking the liner off the Thin 3D Foam Squares - Mix Black, adhere the embellished frame die cut on top of the panel.


Using E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips, adhere the panel to the Glasine bag. Add chocolate kisses in the bag and fold 0.50 in. from top with scoring tool. Seal with E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesives Dispenser (so the seal looks invisible).


Now to give it away...if you can! LOL! Here's another look...

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L & Bo Bunny Blog Hop - Day 5: Winter Joy Shaker Tag Tutorial

Hello! I'm back participating in Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog Hop with Bo Bunny - Day 5! There's a chance to giveaways :) This time I am sharing a shaker banner tag called Winter Joy...you can add a white cord in the back to use as an ornament or a gift tag.


I cut/embossed a ribbon tail banner twice in two different patterned papers from the Winter Wishes Collection from Bo Bunny Designs. On the beautiful Winter Wishes paper (the darker paper), I cut a rectangular window to show my shaker feature.


Using my sequin stash, I added them in to the Keepsake Envelopes Mix medium envelope and sealed the opening by taking off the small white liner to press the flap down.


Remove the liner from the back of envelope. To determine its placement, I used the window tag as a guide. In the back of the window tag, I applied Crafty Foam Tape White to the edges - keep the top liner on for now.


Now to embellish the window tag, I used a combination of Winter Wishes Combo Sticker Sheet, Winter Wishes Noteworthy Pack and Double Dot Jewels. Each piece (except the sticker on the upper left corner) was secured with Crafty Foam Tape White to give dimension and interested.


After the embellished window tag was done, take off the liner in the back and place on top of the shaker tag to create one piece. I folded the organza ribbon from the Texture Ribbon set in half, wrapped around the tag and tied a bow. (Tip: I secured the back of the bow with Dodz Adhesive Dots Small.). Here's another look...

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L & Bo Bunny Blog Hop - Day 2: Let It Snow Hot Cocoa Pocket Card Tutorial

Today I am participating in Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog Hop with Bo Bunny - Day 2!! It is also National Hot Cocoa Day so my pocket card is perfect for the occasion :) It's a "Let It Snow" pocket card with hot cocoa mix! LOL!


This is what it looks like inside...


I started with a 12 x 6" Magic patterned paper from Bo Bunny's Winter Wishes Collection to scored at 4" and 8" to create my card base. Then cut a diagonal for my pocket feature.


Tip: Not to waste the cut piece, I adhered it to the middle panel (using the pocket as a guide to align) with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. Then adhere the pocket by applying the E-Z Runner Ultra from left open side to the bottom edge.


For embellishments, I used Bo Bunny's Noteworthy pack which is full of wonderful assortment of die cuts so no fussy cutting for this gal! I used these below...


I wanted to use an open frame for my card front so I cut the picture inside. Set aside for later use.



I wanted to "pop up" my die cuts so I used a combination of 3D Foam Squares - White, Regular and 3D Foam Squares - Black, Small. These give the die cuts great dimension to my card front.


Tip: never waste any cut out pieces! I used the picture from the picture frame die cut and adhered it inside my card with Creative Photo Corners - Silver.


Just add hot cocoa mix and it's ready to be given away! Here's another look...
