Live Colorfully Circle Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Everyone Loves Color! Let’s create this colorful circle card.

Start by covering the A2 white cardstock card base in patterned paper using the E-Z Dots® Repositionable Refillable Dispenser. Mat the sentiment card in white cardstock and adhere together using Creative Photo Corners White.

Use the matted sentiment as a guide and begin placing the large and small 3D Foam Circles White Mix across the card front. These will become the Colorful Circles for your card. Tuck some under the edges of the sentiment.

Using the oh so beautiful Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Variety Colors, add color to the 3D Foam Circles White Mix. I used a mixture of the jewel tones from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Variety Colors to coordinate with my patterned background.

Be Still and Listen Mixed Media Tag

Hi, Connie here with a mixed media tag celebrating the beauty of nature. The 3D Foam Squares Micro White were a lifesaver adhering the branches and deer horns to the tag. Perfect size for small areas!

Be Still and Listen Mixed Media Tag by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Mixed Media Tag Background Prep

Start with creating a mixed media background on the tag which means a combination of stencils, stamps, inks, and collage. So fun!

Be Still and Listen Mixed Media Tag by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

First, I started with a stencil, then added stamps with the Distress Oxide inks. I just play with it until I like the look.

Embellishing with Elements

Next, I stamped out my focal images and colored them with the Distress Oxide inks I used to create the background. The images were cut out and ready for adhesive.

Be Still and Listen Mixed Media Tag by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For the words, I used the 3D Foam Strips. The branches and horns adhered with 3D Foam Squares Micro White, and the 3D Foam Squares White Mix was used for the body of the animals. The pieces of vintage dictionary paper were adhered to the tag using the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

This was a fun project! The hardest thing (or tricky) was the cutting out of the focal images. So worth it though!

Textured Baby Blue Card

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a simple and easy-to-make textured baby blue card. I love an elegant look for cards and this card is so simple to make that it’s also suitable for beginner card makers.

Textured Baby Blue Card by Yvonne van de Grjip for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Some simple inking and a few die-cuts adhered with Scrapbook Adhesives® by 3L this card will be fun to make. Shall we get started?

Baby Blue Card Panel

Put a piece of white cardstock in an embossing folder and run through your die-cutting and embossing machine (follow the sandwich recommended by its manufacturer). Then trim the cardstock to the right size with a paper trimmer.

Textured Baby Blue Card by Yvonne van de Grjip for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next use an ink blending tool and soft blue ink to slightly color the textured paper. It’s a great way to show off the embossed design.

Textured Baby Blue Card by Yvonne van de Grjip for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Make sure you use very little ink to prevent over-inking your embossed paper. Remember it’s better to add multiple layers than have too much ink in one layer.

The Card Base

Use the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser to mat the embossed card panel onto a soft blue card layer. Then adhere to a white card base also using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Embellishing the Card

Die-cut and emboss a heart shape from soft blue cardstock. To pop up and adhere to the card front, use some of the 3D Foam Squares White Regular Size. Not only does this will give interest to your textured baby blue card, but I also love how the foam square sticks to a textured surface with no issue!

Textured Baby Blue Card by Yvonne van de Grjip for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhere the wooden word, Baby, to the card front with 3D Foam Strips. Again, the foam adhesives have no problem sticking a wood surface to the paper.

Textured Baby Blue Card by Yvonne van de Grjip for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Don’t you love the beautiful 3D effect you have just created? For a finishing touch adhere a satin bow onto the card using Adhesive Dots Ultra Thin. I love using Adhesive Dots since they are perfect for this kind of work!

Textured Baby Blue Card by Yvonne van de Grjip for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Voilá, your textured baby blue card is ready to be sent! I hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial.

Wishing you happy crafting!

Pastel Shaker Birthday Card

Hi there, Jamie here with you today with a pastel shaker birthday card with lots of fun leaf background design. It can be done in a few easy steps. Let me show you how!

Pastel Shaker Birthday Card by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create the Shaker Birthday Card Front

Die-cut leaves from green, purple, and blue cardstock and randomly glued to a white cardstock panel using the Dual Tip Glue Pen.  This panel was then layered onto a purple card using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Make the Shaker Feature

Let’s make the shaker birthday card move! Place the fourth largest 3D Circle Frame in the top center of the panel. This will form the shaker base.

Pastel Shaker Birthday Card by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add silver crushed glass glitter inside of the circle. Remove the top liner and adhere the acetate over the circle. Die-cut a ring (do this by nesting two circle dies together) from purple cardstock. Using the Dual Tip Glue Pen, cover the 3D Foam Circle Frame.

Pastel Shaker Birthday Card by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The Sentiment

Apply Adhesive Sheet on the back of a piece of black cardstock and die-cut the Happy sentiment. It will make the word into a sticker with edge-to-edge coverage. Remove the back liner and place it over the purple word shadow die cut shape. Then glue to the shaker using the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

Stamp the sentiment on purple cardstock with black ink and layered onto black cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Then secure and pop It using 3D Foam Circles to the card front.

Foiled Winter Joy Card

Hello crafty friends! It’s winter and snow season where I live. In honor of the season, here’s a card with shiny foiled snowflakes in nontraditional pretty colors. Check out the words “Winter Joy” that have dimension and a mix of foil colors! Keep reading to learn how to make it.

Foiled Winter Joy Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut Cardstock

Cut white cardstock 9 x 6.25 inches and fold to form a 4.5 x 6.25 inches card. From Fig Swirl cardstock, cut a piece 4 x 5.75 inches. Also, cut approximate 4 x 6 inches white cardstock for snowflakes

Prep + Foil Snowflakes

Foiled Winter Joy Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch to both sides of a 4 x 6 inches white cardstock and rub well with fingers or bone folder to secure adhesive. Cut into approximately 2 x 2 inches pieces to fit snowflake dies.

Foiled Winter Joy Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Remove the liner from one side of the cardstock square, place the adhesive side down on the backside (the dull side) of the blue foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Variety Colors. Flip it over to the color side, rub well with a fingertip to transfer the color, and peel the foil off. Repeat to make another blue piece for a total of two and one square with turquoise foil from the same foil set. Make one from a silver fine glitter patterned foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic Colors.

Foiled Winter Joy Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

From each foil-covered piece of cardstock, die-cut four different snowflakes by placing snowflake die on the foil side. Carefully remove snowflakes from the dies and remove any inner pieces.

Fun + Crazy Foiled Sentiments

Cut a piece of 3D Foam Creative Sheets Medium White approximately 2.5 x 6 inches.

Foiled Winter Joy Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Peel back the top liner about 2 inches and press blue foil (color side up) with your finger tip randomly in 2-3 spots. Repeat with the turquoise and silver foils. Continue to peel the liner further and randomly apply foil until the entire 3D Foam Creative Sheet is covered. If needed, reapply foil on any missed areas.

Die-Cut Words

Place the “Hello Winter” die on the foil-covered side of the 3D Foam Creative Sheet, making sure the “Hello” part of the die is extending off the edge. Next, place the “Joy” die on the foam. Run through die cutting machine 2-3 times to ensure a clean cut.

Foiled Winter Joy Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Carefully remove excess foam from around each word while keeping the word in the die. Then remove the word from the die. Trim off parts of the “Hello” word from the “Winter” piece.

Assemble the Card

Apply E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser to the back of the Fig Swirl paper and fasten to white card. Arrange snowflakes and words on the card.

First, partially peel the liner from the “Joy” word and lightly place on the card. Then continue to peel the liner to adhere it completely. Next, peel the liner from the dot and place it above the “j”. Repeat process for the word “Winter.”

Lastly, peel the liner from the back of a snowflake and add one Adhesive Dots Micro to the center back of the snowflake. Then place the snowflake on the card, and press it firmly in place. Repeat with the rest of the snowflakes.

Outline and Dot Accents

Use Uni-ball Signo white pen to draw a line along the outer edge of the snowflake panel. Randomly add dots with Neon Amplify! white. Allow it to dry. That’s it!

Winter K-Cup Gift Holder

Hello friends! Tracy here, and today I have a fun little Winter K-Cup Gift Holder tutorial to share. This easy little project makes such a sweet little gift to warm someone’s heart this winter. Here are all of the details.

Winter K-Cup Gift Holder by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog

Quick and Easy Gift

The first step in creating this Winter K-Cup Gift Holder is to choose your cardstock for the base. Cut the cardstock to 2.25″ x10.5″. Grab your scoring blade or scoreboard, and score at the following measurements: 0.5″, 1.75″, 4.25″, 6.5″, 9″, 10.25″.

Cut the middle piece that holds the K-Cup to 2.25″x3.25″. Score this piece at the following measurements: 0.5″, 2.75″. Using a 1.75″ circle punch, cut a hole in the middle section of this piece.

Winter K-Cup Gift Holder by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog

Choose the patterned paper you would like to cover the outside of the Winter K-Cup Gift Holder. Start adding to each section using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

Start folding the base to create that milk carton shape. Pop a K-Cup in the middle piece to use as a guide as to where the middle section will be adhered, again using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

Winter K-Cup Gift Holder by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog

Using an Adhesive Dots Micro, add a simple burlap string bow to the top of the Winter K-Cup Gift Holder. I also used Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix to add the ephemera and chipboard sticker pieces to the outside of the carton.

Donut Picks for Valentine’s Day

Hi, friends! Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it! Teri here with a sweet idea for you! Give your sweetie a donut or two with a couple of cute handmade picks in it!

Donut Picks for Valentine's Day by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

These donuts picks are easy to make with a few die-cut shapes, stamps, toothpicks, and basic craft supplies.

Create and Embellish the Donut Picks

Start by cutting a couple of large circles and slightly smaller large circles from cardstock. Note: you’ll also want to cut a few from patterned paper.

Donut Picks for Valentine's Day by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut the circles in half. Decorate some of the half circles of cardstock with half circles of patterned paper.

Donut Picks for Valentine's Day by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Decorate the smaller circles with stamping and die-cuts to make a sweet message for your Valentine!

Assemble the Picks

Take the smaller large circle. Flip it over. Adhere a toothpick onto it. I like to hold the toothpick down with Crafty Power Tape and then add a few Adhesive Dots on top. Surround the toothpick with pieces of foam tape.

Donut Picks for Valentine's Day by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhere the larger half circle to the slightly smaller half circle, sandwiching the toothpick and foam pieces. Complete your donut picks by adding twine and embellishments to them. You can also use them without adding anything!

Foiled Accent Birthday Card

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a Birthday card featuring the Mounting Squares 500 White using a technique called Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside to create a foiled accent birthday card.

Foiled Accent Birthday Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

And the great thing about this card…it’s quick and easy to make! I would love to show you how I made my card. Are you joining me?

Make the Foiled Accent Birthday Card Base

Start by folding a piece of white cardstock to a rectangular-sized card. Then adhere to a grey card panel using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Create the Top Card Panel

First, trim a piece of blue cardstock to a rectangular size. Then stamp upon some texts using a grey ink pad. Then adhere upon some Mounting Squares 500 White.

Foiled Accent Birthday Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, take off the liner of the Mounting Squares and press Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic Colors (with the color side up) over the adhesive Square, and rub over with your fingers to transfer foil. Then peel off the foil and a holographic Square will appear.

Foiled Accent Birthday Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next again adhere several Mounting Squares 500 White onto the card panel and overlap some of the holographic squares. Now take off the liner of the Mounting Squares and sprinkle white glitter upon it and rub the glitter over the Mounting Squares 500 White with your finger. Then tap off any excess glitter. This technique making your adhesive shine is also known as Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside.  Next, I decided to add a torn edge to the card panel using a Torn Edge Trimmer and adhered the panel onto the card base using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Embellishing the Birthday card

First die-cut some skeleton leaves from white cardstock. Then adhere the leaves onto the card base using 3D Foam Squares Micro White.

Foiled Accent Birthday Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

These extra small 3D Squares are great for detailed adhering without needing a craft knife since the squares are sized just 0.12×0.12in… so super easy!

Foiled Accent Birthday Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Finally, I adhered a sentiment onto the card using Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix. And voilá your Birthday Card is ready. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and wish you happy crafting!

Mixed Media Snowflake Card

Hi, Connie here with a Mixed Media Snowflake Card using the 3D Foam Snowflakes as dimensional embellishments. They are fun and make for a pretty card. Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L® has 17 3D Foam Shapes to choose to create with.

Mixed Media Snowflake Square Card by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Stamp & Mask the Mixed Media Snowflake Card Panel

To build my card, start with a white background and stamp a coffee cup. Use the Archival Distress/Hickory Smoke to stamp the sleigh and then add Distress Oxides inks for the color. But first I needed to mask my cup.

Mixed Media Snowflake Square Card by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
  • 1. To make the mask, stamp a second coffee cup on a scrap piece of cardstock and trim it out.
    2. To create the background, apply E-Z Runner® Grand Repositionable Dots Refill on the back of the coffee cup mask, and place it over the coffee cup image on the card front. Now randomly stamp the sleigh on the cardstock with Archival Distressed/Hickory Smoke. A light color ink works best.
    3. Use Crafty Foam Tape White 54ft to attach the card front to the black cardstock mat.
    4. Next, use the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser to attach the card front to the card base.
Mixed Media Snowflake Square Card by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add Background Coloring

Color the card front background with Distress Oxide inks watered down. I used blue tones. On the coffee cup, a sleigh was stamped in the center with Distressed Archival/Black Soot.

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside with 3D Foam Snowflakes

To use these 3D Foam Snowflakes as embellishments vs. placing them between layers, we call it “Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside” and most do not need special tools. In this case, we are using pigment powder to add color and interest.

Simply remove the snowflake from the package, leaving the release sheet on its back, dip and press them into the powder until it is covered. Remove with tweezers, burnish the powder into the shapes and place them on the card front. That’s it!

Mixed Media Snowflake Square Card by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The Finishing Touches

Lastly, use the 3D Foam Strips to the back of the word sticker add it to the card front. Speckle with white acrylic paint. Call it good and cute!

All Occasion Heartfelt Heart-Shaped Card Tutorial

Happy 2022, everyone! I am thrilled to be posting the first project for the new year with this heartfelt 2022 greeting with this heart-shaped card.

All Occasion Heartfelt Heart-Shaped Card Tutorial by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Heart-Shaped Card Front

To create my heart-shaped card front, I die-cut a #-inch heart from a pattern paper. With the E-Z Runner® Hearts, I applied several vertical rows of hearts to fill the shape. My purpose is to create an interesting background from a plain striped pattern.

All Occasion Heartfelt Heart-Shaped Card Tutorial by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Sprinkle fine white glitter to cover the hearts, press into the hearts to secure and tap off excess. Note: a clean paint brush may help to get rid of those pesky lingering glitter.

All Occasion Heartfelt Heart-Shaped Card Tutorial by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This technique is called Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside. Use adhesives as an embellishing element instead of adhering between layers. You can also use our Metallic Transfer Foil sheets, pigment powder, flock and even embossing powder to melt into the shapes.

All Occasion Heartfelt Heart-Shaped Card Tutorial by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Layering Heart-Shaped Elements

Since this wasn’t enough, I layered the largest heart from the 3D Foam Hearts. Using the chunky silver glitter foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets in Holographic Colors set, I placed it over the foam heart color side UP and rub gently to transfer the color to the shape. Peel off and done! If there are missed areas, simply reapply the foil.

All Occasion Heartfelt Heart-Shaped Card Tutorial by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Yup, added more layers! LOL! I centered a medium size heart from the 3D Foam Hearts onto the larger foiled heart and used the same fine white glitter to tie in the background hearts. Next, I took a heart from the E-Z Runner® Hearts and adhered it to the center of the glittered heart. I foiled it with the red foil from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit with Foil. Don’t forget to foil color side UP!

All Occasion Heartfelt Heart-Shaped Card Tutorial by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add More Interest

I couldn’t resist because I had this 3D Foam Creative Sheet left from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit with Foil that I had to use. LOL! Nesting two hearts together, I die-cut them from the foam sheet to make a heart-shaped frame. If you’re looking for a dimensional element, this is perfect to die-cut any shape you want to customize for your projects!

All Occasion Heartfelt Heart-Shaped Card Tutorial by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place on the card front, remove the top liner, and apply foil in the same previous steps (color side up). LOVED how it turned out!

All Occasion Heartfelt Heart-Shaped Card Tutorial by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create the Heart-Shaped Card Base

Let’s create the shaped card base. Fold a piece of cream cardstock and place the heart die just enough that the top is over the crease. This part act as a hinge for the shaped card. It won’t be a full heart shape but that’s OK. The card front will cover that part in the next step.

All Occasion Heartfelt Heart-Shaped Card Tutorial by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong over the cream card base and place the embellished card front on top. Make sure to match up the shape to look like one shape.

All Occasion Heartfelt Heart-Shaped Card Tutorial by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Lastly, die-cut a large scalloped heart with a piece of patterned paper and adhere the heart-shaped card in the center with the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong.
