An Extra Special Anniversary Card using Crafty Foam Tape

A special anniversary card deserves to have an extra special touch by adding layers and dimension in a big way!

Today I wanted to share with you a bit about how I created this card for my sister and brother-in-law for their 60th Anniversary. Even though we couldn’t be there to celebrate, I wanted it to be a big beautiful card that let them know that we send them all our love and best wishes.

An Extra Special Anniversary Card using Crafty Foam Tape by Vicki Chrisman for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Details behind the Anniversary Card

When making a larger and more involved card like this one, I love creating it with lots of dimensions. 3D Foam Squares are great for embellishments but what about when you want to raise up a large matted piece?  The answer is Crafty Foam Tape.  It’s perfect for the task and so easy to use.  Simply cut your pieces to the exact size you need.  In this case, I used it to raise up the entire brown piece of cardstock that I built the rest of the card on.

As I put together the rest of the card, I used my 3D Foam Squares White, Small to lift up the smaller pieces like the butterflies.  I used Crafty Power Tape 81″ Dispenser to adhere the vintage lace. Varied sizes of Adhesive Dots were used to secure the other embellishments.  The general adhesive I used on this card was E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.


When they receive it, I know they will see a lot of love and thought went into creating it. Having the right adhesive makes creating that much more enjoyable.

Thank you for stopping by!

Pennant and Stars Welcome Sweet Little One Card

Looking for a sweet baby card to create? Hello everyone!  It’s Judy here today with a Welcome Sweet Little One card embellished a combination of 3D Foam Pennants and 3D Foam Stars. For color, I’ve used fine embossing powder (not heated) to the pennants and glitter on the stars. Both stick easily to the adhesive to “Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside.”

Pennant and Stars Welcome Sweet Little One Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Making it Sweet!

To create the base of my card, I added a patterned paper card panel to the white card base with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser. The 3D Foam Pennants were fastened across a piece of pearl cotton which in turn, was fastened in back with Premium Double-Sided Tape ¼ʺ Permanent. Dots of white accent the space between pennants. Set aside.

In order to glitter the 3D Foam Star, I had to remove the top liner and sprinkle glitter (make sure to press the glitter into the star shape). Tap off excess, remove from its sheet and place on top of each 3D Foam Pennant (remove the top liner from the pennant shape first).

View this quick video tutorial on How to Use 3D Foam Shapes.

Next, add embossing powder to the pennants. Because we are only adding color, there’s no need to heat emboss. Stamped sentiments were fastened to patterned paper with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser and popped up with 3D Foam Squares White Regular Size.

Ready to send to a dear friend and her new sweet baby boy!

Happy Creating!
Judy

Stacked Hearts Thank You Card with Foiling

I’m sharing stacked hearts die cuts to create a wonderful heartfelt thank you card to someone special today! Hi, Terri Burson here and I am excited to be here to share inspiration like this sweet card.

Stacked Hearts Thank You Card by Terri Burson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Details on the Hearts Card

My card was created by nesting hearts die cuts, adding the outside edges of a paper lace doily and foiling a sentiment die cut. Simply use 3D Foam Creative Sheet to bring dimension to the sentiment and a bit of silver foil sheet to bring that WOW! factor to my sentiment. You can accomplish this by using the 3D Creative Embellishment Kit to “Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside!”

My 3.75 x  5.00 in. card base was created with mixed media paper. On the scalloped card panel, I added a splatter design by adding water to Ranger Ink Distress Oxides for color and using a brush to splatter the front.  To stack the hearts, I used 3D Foam Squares for dimension. The rest of the card was assembled with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips.

Please click below to view my process video, Stacked Hearts Thank You Card. P.S. Note I said 3D Foam Hearts = oops, I meant 3D Foam Squares! Freudian slip: Hearts on the Brain! HA!

Mountains and Bear Themed Baby Shower Banner

A fun banner is in order for this unique theme of mountains and bear for a baby boy shower! My cousin had hers over the holidays. Why this theme? It’s a reflection of the decor in the baby’s room 🙂 Clever!

Hi Latrice here to share a unique baby shower banner to go with this theme. I used my favorite tape runner, E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser, to assemble the banner so that she can keep it for the nursery after the shower! Let’s get started and create!

Mountains and Bear Themed Baby Shower Banner by Latrice Murphy for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

 

Moving Mountains for this Banner!

To create the mountains I was inspired by what the couple had painted on their nursery walls. First, find and grab 13 sheets of white cardstock. Trim to desired sized rectangles.

In addition, find 13 sheets of navy cardstock and trim to make sure you have a white border left and right sides of your navy rectangle. Adhere all the papers together to make 13 one-layered banner bases, using E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.

Next, die cut letters in white cardstock to spell out “Move Mountains.” Pick letter sizes that can fit inside the navy cardstock AND to leave space at the bottom to fit mountain peeks. Adhere the letters with E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.

Hand cut with scissors the mountain peaks in different neutral colored cardstock such as kraft, light blue, navy and grey. Layer the mountains easily with the  E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser. Sometimes I get carried away when using my runner but no worries as the permanent strips can easily be folded under if there are any overhangs.

To attach the banner to the ribbon use the same E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser. For extra interest to the banner, I added staples and to secure it more so that people can touch it and take photos in front of it.

Here’s a closeup of the banner.

It was such a great shower. The mountain and bear theme was seriously so adorable! Check out the fun cake and marzipan campsite the aunts created.

Sweet Floral Layered Tags

Hello friends!  Is it cold in your neck of the woods? It has been unusually cold here in Florida. So I am dreaming of warm weather and for all the flowers to be in bloom, which heavily influenced today’s project…floral layered tags.

Sweet Floral Layered Tags by Latisha Yoast for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Details in the Layered Pieces

Do you have a pile of unused die cuts in your stash? Well, I do. There’s this package of floral patterned die cuts and a pile of cardstock die cuts. So why not combine the two types, and make a few layered tags.

Because I wanted to make these tags interesting and dimensional, I used a combination of Crafty Foam Tape and 3D Foam Squares White, Mixed to bring beautiful layering effect.

See How to Use 3D Foam Squares video and you’ll know why they are so popular!

If you’re going to have tags, you have to add ribbon and twine! To adhere the sweet ribbon bow on the first tag, I used Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium to secure it in place. It’s very simple and fast! Now my tags are ready to be added to cards, bags or gifts! Make a bunch and have them handy when you looking for something beautiful to embellish!

Thanks for stopping in!

UpCycle Christmas Card Layout

I have an idea on how to upcycle holiday cards to make a sweet scrapbook layout. Happy 2018 crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I have a fun little layout tutorial that helps you upcycle some of those Christmas cards you received.

UpCycle Christmas Card Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Upcycle those cards!

First, you are going to gather the cards that you don’t mind upcycling.

From two cards, I cut title pieces that will end up being the title on my layout. I also cut strips from cards that had full patterned borders because you want these to be at least 6″ long.

Using Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/8in., I took those strips to create patterned paper straws. Depending on the thickness of the cardstock, you might have to use a pen or pencil to help shape it.

Using a 2″ circle punch I cut out pretty patterned bits from a variety of cards, then cut them in half on my trimmer. These become the scalloped border at the top and bottom of my layout using the E-Z Runner Permanent Fine runner.

I added Creative Photo Corners in Kraft to my matted photo and then popped it up off of the layout and above the patterned straws using 2 layers of 3D Foam Squares.

Add the title pieces using 3D Foam Squares.

Add a few more embellishments as your final touch.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

How to Create Texture on 3D Foam Hearts

Today we’re talking about texture! Good morning! Michele here with a fun Valentine card to share with you!  Some cards just beg to be touched…and this is definitely one of them 🙂

Isn’t this an interesting looking surface? Care to guess what it is? It’s bead pop embedded in Dual Tip Glue Pen with glitter in between! I love how this effect came together. Let me tell you how I created it.

Creating Heartful Texture to Cards by Michele Kovack for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Making Fun Texture

  1. Water color the background.  I chose colors that aren’t typically Valentine’s Day colors.
  2. Adhere 3 varying sizes of 3D Foam Hearts to the watercolor panel.
  3. Normally the sticky side is enough for adhering glitter and such. Since the solid bead pops were bigger, I removed the top liner and added glue to the surface of each heart using the Dual Tip Glue Pen. After carefully placing the solid bead pops, I sprinkled a bit of glitter on top to sort of fill in the gaps. The Dual Tip Glue Pen dries clear, and quickly!
  4. Once it was dry, I used Adhesive Dots Small to add my leaves and flower.
  5. Using Crafty Foam Tape, I adhered the sentiment to the front and tied a pink ribbon on top of it.
  6. The watercolor panel was adhered to a slightly bigger pink panel and then on to the white card base using Crafty Foam Tape.

Try a different color palette for your next Valentine card. Thank you so much for stopping by today!
