Painted Flower Card Using Pigment Powder

Hi there, today I want to show you a painted flower card for which I used a stencil and the Pigment Powder BluePigment Powder Silver and the Girlie Grunge Art Medium by Donna Salazar.


I’m so in love with the Girlie Grunge Art Medium and I’m using it in so many ways: to glue something, to create a collage, to varnish a painting, to make photo transfers,…

AND, I also use it with the Pigment Powder and a little bit of water to create my own paint. It works like a binder and gives a shimmery shine at the same time.


For this card I painted the background with Pigment Powder Silver. I mixed the Pigment with a little bit of water and the Girlie Grunge Art Medium.

Then I used a flower stencil and modelling paste to create the flower. With the Pigment Powder Blue I worked out the shadow at the flower. I gave it some layers and used also a little bit of black acrylic paint mixing it with the blue tone to create more depth.


To give the flower an interesting touch I added a little piece of Girlie Grunge Gauze at the center and glued it down with the Girlie Grunge Art Medium.

I had so much fun to create them and I hope I could inspire you.

Thanks for visiting me today!

I wish you a nice creative day!

Floral Tag with Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape

Hi everyone, Christine here today with a floral gift tag accented with Donna Salazar’s beautiful Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape – Flower. I’m not quite ready to give up on Summer and welcome Autumn hence the bright flowers!

Floral Tag by Christine Emberson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I firstly attached patterned paper to a tag using E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable.  NOTE: you can refill these dispensers with whatever E-Z adhesive you prefer. They are all interchangeable.  Once affixed to the tag – trim and punch a hole.


Across the bottom I affixed two horizontal strips of Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape – Denim and Flower.  So easy to apply and if it doesn’t look quite straight it is easy to lift and reapply.


To embellish my tag I stamped a sentiment and die cut some stamped flowers. These are positioned and affixed with 3D Foam Squares – White, Regular.


Cut two lengths of Girlie Grunge Twine, I chose the navy and natural as it coordinated so well. Insert through the punched hole and tied.


The finished tag, perfect to attach to a gift or maybe a special bottle of something…


Thank you for joining me today and please remember to check out the brilliant products on the website.Christine

How to Create a Girlie Grunge Monogram Tag

I had a tag that was pink…now I like pink but this color did not speak to me. LOL! So I covered it with Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape in Denim – who doesn’t love denim? It would be the perfect background to what I had in mind.

This tag is dedicated to my sweet friend, Ellen, who I will always remember her wearing blue jeans, boots and a cowgirl hat…she was my hip friend. We lost her this past weekend to a tragic house fire. Will miss her…

Girlie Grunge Ellen Tag by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I covered this tag with Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape in Denim from Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collection. This tape is forgiving….if you missed a spot, you can pick up the tape and re-do.



Next I tint Girlie Grunge Art Medium with Pigment Powder Gold. Add a little water to make a little more liquidity (is that a word? lol!). Then I painted on to a piece of 6″ strip of Texture Ribbons in White Burlap – this will not only stiffen the ribbon but it gives it a beautiful golden color. Let dry (I let it dry overnite).


When the gold burlap dried, I die-cut a letter “E” using my steel rule die and manual die-cutting machine. I also die-cut two different sizes of my labels die to frame the initial. I used the Dual Tip Glue Pen to adhere the letter to the small label and for the small label, 3D Foam Squares – White, Regular.



Set the die cuts aside to work on the bottom of the tag to create a layered border using Lace Ribbons and Girlie Grunge Twine in Navy. I used Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8″ Permanent and Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini to secure all on the tag.


Using the bottom border as a guide, I adhered the layered die cut with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser to the center of the tag. Then I tied a knot with the Lace Ribbons in Crocheted Lace Trim to finish.

Hoppy Halloween Card using E-Z Runner® Grand

Hola!  Happy Saturday!  We are currently awaiting a storm they are deeming the “storm of the century” in our area, a PERFECT day to craft! I have this adorable Halloween card to share, using our E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser to put it all together.


I have recently decided I am loving coloring again.  I go through cycles of not enjoying it, maybe it’s because I have a extremely small collection of markers…


To start, I stamped and colored my cute focal image, and adhered it to my card base using the E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser. Then stamped some star accents randomly on the top area of the card base.

ajotto-hoppyhalloween-3Add a couple of patterned paper strips for a pop of color. Make the sentiment dimensional by adhering with 3D Foam Squares – White, Small. For the finishing touch, add a few sequins using the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

ajotto-hoppyhalloween-4I also colored in the stars with my link of stella pen for a little more shimmer!

Whale Done with Pigment Powder

Hello!  It’s Amy here with a card that has a smidge of watercoloring.  I’ve been really enjoying the watercoloring trend. Let me show you how I achieved this with Pigment Powder Blue from Donna Salazar line with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.


Here’s how I did it:


Just add Pigment Powder Blue with a bit of water.  It has such a nice shimmer to it!


I popped the whale on 3D Foam Squares – White Mix.


I used E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable on the various panels of paper.  I ran out and wanted to share a pic of how to refill the E-Z Runner.  You pry off one of the side and literally lift out the empty cartridge and pop in a new one…easy smeasy.


I never tire of nautical, how about you?


Thanks so much for stoppin’ by!

Fall Thank You Card Featuring Donna Salazar Products

Hi crafty friends! It’s Lisa on the blog again and in most places the air is starting to turn cooler. Unless you live where *I* do…Nevada. I’m still in shorts. Which is why making Fall cards still keeps me dreaming of beautiful, cool, colorful Autumn days. And what better way to do that with products from the line from Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Mixed Media?  Let me show you what I made today:


This card may look complicated, but it’s very easy to replicate.

  1. Add patterned paper to the base card at the same size. Adhere using E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser.
  2. Adhere Premium Double-Sided Tape 1″ towards left side of card. Lift off release paper and use Pigment Powder in Brown and burnish with soft brush (or finger) onto tape. Next to tape add a piece of Donna’s Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape. I elected to use the Ash.
  3. Die cut patterned paper and a piece of white cardstock. Stamp the sentiment from copper embossing powder. Be certain to stamp slightly left of center since the right side of the piece will be cut off.
  4. Using the Brown , Gold , and the Wine Pigment Powders burnish color into the 3D Foam Leaves. When done, place onto the white die cut piece. Also, add orange embossing powder to another leaf and VERY carefully emboss the leaf (you don’t want to melt the foam). Add this one to the white cardstock, too.
  5. Add 3D Foam Squares – White, Regular to the back of the white die cut piece and place on top of the patterned paper piece.
  6. For additional texture and to make the card look a little more girlie add a bit of Crochet Lace Trim at the bottom of the card. Secure with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Adhesive. And tie a bit of her Girlie Grunge Twine around the ribbon and fasten in a bow.

Here a are some additional views:

Just wanted to show how easy the bow is AND how pretty it is. 🙂


The leaves are so pretty!

Creating a Card with Dimensional Layers using Craft Foam Tape

Good morning friends! Michele here with a card today that required no stamping at all!  Just beautiful papers, dimensional foam adhesive and a few pretty embellishments.  I cut the various designer papers and backed them with brown card stock using Crafty Foam Tape in White.


I tied silk ribbon horizontally and adhered a sunflower to the center using Home Hobby Dual Tip Glue Pen.  I also used this glue to adhere glitter to the perimeter of the sentiment, as well as the gold leaves under the ribbon.fall8

I added various sequins and the little birdie with Dodz Adhesive Dots Small.  This was a quick easy card to make!  Just a bit of glitter and some pretty embellishments is all this card needed!fall7better

‘Remember This Day’ Layout with DODZ Adhesive Dots Mini

Hi there! It’s Erica and today I’m sharing a layout using DODZ Adhesive Dots Mini. Our DODZ Adhesive Dots Mini are the ideal size for adhering those smaller embellishments. I used them to adhere the sequins and arrows on my layout.


These DODZ Adhesive Dots Mini are especially perfect for sequins as you don’t have to trim any extra excess off. They are also very strong and durable despite how tiny they are so you don’t have to worry about your embellishments falling off.

Here are a few close-ups:

Self-made Boat with Driftwood, Girlie Grunge Gauze, Art Medium and Canvas Ribbons

Hi there, it’s Stephanie here today with a fun little project, a self-made boat for which I used the Canvas RibbonsGirlie Grunge Art Medium and Girlie Grunge Gauze by Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3®. It’s made with a driftwood I found at sea and thought it will be a nice memory from our vacation.


Let me show you how I created this little boat.


1 – First I cut some Canvas Ribbons in a form of straight cut at the left and obliquely cut at the right side. The stripes getting wider until a shape of a sail is ready.

2 – Gluing the stripes together with the Girlie Grunge Art Medium.

3 – Sewing a small loop at the straight side to hold a stick. I also sewed the longer side by hand.

4 – The stick is holding the sail.

5 – Varnishing the driftwood by using the Girlie Grunge Art Medium. After its dry make a hole in the middle of the wood.


6 – Preparing the second sail by using the Girlie Grunge Gauze.

7 – Cutting a triangular shape.

8 – Using the Girlie Grunge Art Medium to stiffen the gauze. Let it dry.

9 – Then I fixed the smaller sail by using a needle and thread. The threads at the straight side I fixed by a knob at the stick, the thread on the outer left I fixed by using a little hook.

10 – I finished the boat by using rub-ons I put on the bigger sail.
