Simple Stars Card

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I am sharing a simple stars card that can be created in less than 30 minutes. A great option when you need a card in a pinch. Here are all of the details.

Simple Stars Card by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Simple Stars Card Instructions

First I gathered the basic layers of my card. I cut out the 3×4 printed sentiment from the Stargazer collection. Then cut a white cardstock mat, and the larger layer from black cardstock. The card base is a white cardstock A2. Add the sentiment to the white cardstock mat using Creative Photo Corners Gold. Next adhere that to the next layer using Crafty Foam Tape Black.

Using the E-Z Runner® Stars Refillable Dispenser, I added them by hand across the top and bottom of the black cardstock layer of my Simple Stars Card. Then using Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic Colors, I covered the E-Z Runner® Stars Refillable Dispenser with the fine gold foil.

Wish on a Star Card

Wish on A Star! Hello, my crafty friends. Jenn Gross here as a guest designer with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. They offer some amazing products and I am using their E-Z Runner® Stars and the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets for today’s project. These products will be used to make bling on this sweet card, Wish on a Star. You may recognize this card from the Whimsy Stamps Instagram Hop they did recently.

Wish on a Star Card Front

Wish on a Star Card by Jenn Gross for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

In step A, I stamped the Silver Fairy stamp on a piece of coloring cardstock. Then I colored using a combination of TriBlend and Copic alcohol markers.

Image B shows a piece of 4 x 5.25-inch dark night sky patterned paper with the Star Dangle stencil over the top. Then use Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink to stencil. Set it aside to dry.

In steps C and D, I positioned a star shape from the E-Z Runner Stars at the end of the runner and ran it over one of the stenciled stars. Ten stars were used on the stenciled card front.

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside

Wish on a Star Card by Jenn Gross for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

In steps E, F, G, H, and I, I share my foiling steps. From the Metallic Transfer Foils Sheet in Holographics, I chose the Fine Gold Glitter sheet. To make it easier to foil, I cut a strip. With the color side UP, place over one of the E-Z Runner Stars on the card front. Use your fingertip to rub and transfer the color to the star. Simply peel off to reveal a newly foiled star. Easy – no tools! Repeat this step with the remaining stars.

Layering Your Card Base

Wish on a Star Card by Jenn Gross for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Images J, K, and L, I used Craft Foam Tape 108ft in White on the back of the card panel. Designer’s Tip: apply two strips in the middle and remove the release papers. Then apply foam tape to the four sides and turn back the corners of the release papers as shown in L.  This makes it easier to center the card front onto the green A2 card base as you see in image M. Just press the card panel in the middle and peel back the release paper to secure the card front.

The Wish Sentiment

Wish on a Star Card by Jenn Gross for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

In steps N through P, I die-cut WISH using 3D Foam Creative Sheet from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit. It cuts like butter and with no residue on the metal die. Next, I gently removed the foam word and its release paper backing. Then placed it on the front lower right of the card pressing it in place.

Images Q and R, remove the top release paper, place a piece of gold foil from the Creative Embellishment Kit over it. Don’t forget – color side up! Repeat the same foiling step as the stars. Gently lift the foil revealing the gilded word “Wish.”

Finishing the Wish on a Star Card

Wish on a Star Card by Jenn Gross for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

As you see in images S, T, and U, attach the stamped Silver Fairy to the card front using E-Z Runner Permanent Strips. It’s ready to be sent out!

Faux String Art Celebrate Cards

Hi, everyone! Sewing on handmade cards is really popular these days! But have you tried making a card with embroidery floss and thread without ever doing a single stitch? Teri here to show you how to do just that. Let’s started on these Faux String Art Celebrate Cards!

Faux String Art Celebrate Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

My faux string art technique is so fun and so easy! All you need is floss, 3D Foam Circles and a few basic paper crafting supplies to create some really amazing cards.

Faux String Art Mechanics

Start by cutting two rectangles of cardstock. Mine are 5″ x 3 3/4″ each. Set one aside and set the other on your work surface. Use a pencil and ruler to mark rows along the side of the panel. You want to mark about 1/2″ in from the sides of panel and put marks at every inch mark.

Faux String Art Celebrate Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Take two 3D Foam Circles, stack them up and adhere them at every inch mark.

Take pieces of floss or twine and wrap them around the circles. I used a rainbow color scheme but you can use any color combination you like.

Faux String Art Celebrate Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Once you’ve wrapped as much floss as you’d like around the circles, add foam strips around the panel’s borders. Be sure to use two layers worth of strips so they are as tall as your circles.

Faux String Art Celebrate Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Take your second paper panel and cut a rectangle out of it so you have a frame. Adhere it on top of the foam strips.

Faux String Art Celebrate Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Embellish your string art by adding a few sequins or gems to it. Also, stamp a sentiment onto a strip of cardstock and add it to the panel.

Faux String Art Celebrate Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Mat the panel on cardstock and then add it to a card. I felt my card was a little plain so I went one step further by applying a few adhesive stars and dumping white flock onto them. I love faux-embossed look it gives the panel.

Switch Up the Design by Adding More Rows

A fun twist on this technique is to add more rows of floss to your design.

Faux String Art Celebrate Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For this card, I also wrapped the floss around the foam circles so it crossed itself. I think the look is really interesting.

I hope you are inspired by this faux string art technique to give it a try! Please leave a comment for me to stop by your blog and check your projects! See you again soon!

Happy creating,

Glittered Mother’s Day Card Tutorial

Hi everyone, Yvonne here! With Mother’s Day coming up soon, I thought you could use some inspiration and created this Glittered Mother’s Day Card. It has sweet florals, sparkle and just enough thoughtful expression for mom.

Glittered Mother's Day Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The die-cut word Mom is made from 3D Foam Creative Sheets Mix using the technique Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside. Wanna join me in creating this sweet card? Let’s get started.

Glittered Mother’s Day Card Panel

Start by die-cutting and embossing a piece of pink patterned paper. Then die-cut the word Mom from a piece of 3D Foam Creative Sheets Mix. Now remove the back liner from the sentiment and adhere onto the card panel. Next remove the top liner from the sentiment and sprinkle pink glitter upon.

Glittered Mother's Day Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Then gently rub the glitter over the sentiment for extra secure adhering. Tap off any excess glitter. This technique, making you adhesive shine, is also know as Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside.

Card Base Assembly

Die-cut and emboss a piece of green glittered cardstock. Then put Creative Photo Corners Silver onto the corners of the pink card panel. Then adhere onto the green card panel.

Glittered Mother's Day Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Since the photo corners are self-adhesive, they will keep the pink top card panel perfectly in place, but if you want extra secure adhering, you could run the EZ Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser over the back of the top card panel before adhering the card panel.

Next adhere the card panel onto a white card base using the EZ Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser for adhering.

Card Embellishments

To embellish the Mother’s Day card I used mulberry flowers and a bow. First I made a bow and adhered it to the top of the card using Adhesive Dots Medium Ultra Thin for stainless adhering..

Glittered Mother's Day Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Then adhered the flowers to the card using the Dual Tip Glue Pen. And voila… your Mother’s Day card is ready.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and wish you happy crafting.

Especially for You Card

Hi, Connie here with a card that screams Spring! I created Especially for You Card with Whimsy Stamps and some of the new products by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I was really excited about the 3D Foam Circle Frames Black and thought they would work well for showcasing the stamped image.

Especially for You Card by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Especially for You Stamping

Especially for You Card by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The beautiful Lilac & Butterfly stamp was stamped on white cardstock, colored with Distress Oxide inks and then splattered with silver Perfect Pearls. The image was then cut down to a 4″x4″. I used a stamping platform so the butterfly image could be re-stamped several times, resulting in a rich black color on the butterfly wings.

Creating the Card Front

Especially for You Card by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cut the 3D foam circle frames Black in half and adhere them to the card front. Apply Perfect Pearls over the top of the 3DFoam Circle Frame Black with a soft brush. The card front is ready to be adhered to the back.

Good Life Happy Memories Card

Edit to Add: The Insta Hop & Giveaway is Closed. Thank You for Participating!!
Congratulations to the winner, @pegasong!
🎉

Hello crafty friends! Today it’s all about Whimsy stamps on the blog. But all week, we are collaborating with them in an Instagram Hop! It is Day 4 and details are at the bottom of this post. My contribution is this card featuring The Mailbox stamp set. It recalls happy memories of quiet days. It’s such a pretty scene to stamp and color. Let me walk you through my process.

Good Life Happy Memories Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Good Life Happy Memories Card Basics

Good Life Happy Memories Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To make this card, first stamp The Mailbox scene with Versafine Onyx Black ink on the smooth side of watercolor paper. I used my Misti so I could stamp more than once if needed to get a good image. Heat set ink or allow to dry thoroughly before water coloring image.

Good Life Happy Memories Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I like watercolors and chose to use those for coloring. Markers will work well, too. Paint the image with watercolors. Let dry and trim close to stamped image – about 3.375 x 4.25 inches. For the mat, cut white cardstock to 3.75 x 4.625 inches. Then cut a red cardstock mat just slightly larger than the white mat.

Good Life Happy Memories Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Creating the Panels

Adhere the watercolor panel to the white mat using E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser. This adhesive is strong which makes it ideal for watercolor paper which often curls after painting and needs a strong adhesive to keep it flat.

Good Life Happy Memories Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser to apply adhesive to back of white mat. Fasten to red mat. E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser is my favorite adhesive dispenser! It’s small and fits my hand well. E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser can be used but it’s not necessary here although I often use it on the corners to be sure they stay in place!

Make the Card Front

Good Life Happy Memories Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Form white cardstock to make a side open card that’s 4.5 x 6.5 inches. Cut yellow cardstock mat 4.375 x 6.375 inches and secure the yellow mat to the card front using E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.

Good Life Happy Memories Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix to back of matted stamped image. Remove liners and attach to the card front.

Good Life Happy Memories Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Good Life Happy Memories Sentiment

Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and fussy cut around it.

Good Life Happy Memories Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix small squares at top of the sentiment and then apply 3D Foam Squares White Mix along the bottom. Check how it lays on card before placing. If not level, add Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix on top of 3D Foam Squares White Mix as needed so it lays flat. It will overlap the stamped image where it’s raised and bottom rests on card. Remove liners and fasten verse on card. It’s ready to be sent out!

Can you stand this stinkin’ cute HapBee BeeDay Mixed Media Card? I am so excited to share with you this project BEEcause Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Whimsy Stamps are collaborating on an Instagram Hop & Giveaway this week! Before we get to the hop, let me show you my cardmaking photo tutorial. Stick around to the end, we’ll take you to the link.

HapBee BeeDay Honeycomb Die Cut

HapBee BeeDay Mixed Media Card by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Use a piece of black cardstock and apply 3D Foam Creative Sheet Medium to the back. Die-cut it with the Honeycomb Pattern DieDesigner’s Note: Because it is intricate, I rolled it through the machine about two to three times. Set aside.

Inking a Background

HapBee BeeDay Mixed Media Card by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

On a 4.25 x 5.5-inch white card panel, I inked the background with Distressed Oxide in Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, and Dried Marigold. Then I misted water on it and let dry. It creates a wonderful mixed media backdrop for my card design. 🙂

Stamping Elements

HapBee BeeDay Mixed Media Card by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, I stamped a sweet bee with a flower from the Bee Happy Rubber Cling Stamp Set on white cardstock and colored it with watercolor pencils. When done, I fussy cut it and set it aside. Next, I stamped the sentiment, cut it to a ribbon tail, and mat it with black cardstock.

Adding Accents

HapBee BeeDay Mixed Media Card by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Using the card elements as a guide, I determined where to place my Adhesive Dots Small. Take off the liners to pour gold glitter on top, press to secure, and tap off the excess. As a result, I have glittered accents for my card panel.

HapBee BeeDay Mixed Media Card by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To add more accents, I used the Creative Photo Corners in Gold on all four corners of the card panel and secured it on the black card base.

HapBee BeeDay Mixed Media Card by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Assembling the Card

To finish, take off the liner from the back of the honeycomb pattern die cut and place it on the panel. Next, place 3D Foam Circles White on the back of the bee and adhere it to the left of the honeycomb. Add the sentiment to the bottom right corner with the E-Z Runner Petite Permanent Dots. Lastly, add the honeycomb pieces around the panel and the HapBee BeeDay Card is done!

Fun and Colorful Mini Cards

Hi, everyone! There’s just something about leaving a note for someone special and letting them know you care for them! Teri here with some colorful mini cards to do just that!

Fun and Colorful Mini Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

These cards came together quickly by using pre-cut frame die-cuts. Don’t have any frame die-cuts? You easily make your own frames from patterned paper by cutting rectangles or squares and slicing rectangles or squares out of the insides.

Frame and Build Colorful Mini Cards

Start by creating a base for your frame by folding a piece of cardstock in half and trimming it to fit under the frame. Add a piece of patterned paper (or two) behind the frame and adhere it the card.

Fun and Colorful Mini Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Decorate the inside of your frame with stickers or die-cuts. Also, my frame for this card had a small heart die-cut built into it so I adhered it to the frame with a foam square.

Fun and Colorful Mini Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

You’ll also want to decorate your frame. Consider using foam strips to add lines to your card, plus try using foam circles to make dots. You can also create a scalloped border by cutting foam circles in half and then lining them next to each other.

Fun and Colorful Mini Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Once you’ve adhered your pieces of foam to your colorful mini card, dump flock onto them. Be sure to burnish the flock completely to the foam so there’s there is not sticky adhesive exposed.

Fun and Colorful Mini Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Complete your card by adding a few gems or sequins to the design.

Two More Takes on Colorful Mini Cards

I created this card a little differently.

Fun and Colorful Mini Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

While I still designed it around the frame, I added two strips of foam inside the frame. I also added a small scalloped border to one of the strips.

Fun and Colorful Mini Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For added pop, I tied some twine around the die-cut sentiment and affixed it the card with 3D Foam Squares.

This colorful mini card was also created differently. Once again, I built the design around the frame die-cut. To give the card pop, I adhered the frame to the card with foam strips.

Fun and Colorful Mini Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I added a 3D Foam Circle Frame to the middle of the card and put sticker sentiment on top of it. (Creative tip! To keep the sticker from collapsing in the middle, I added a couple foam squares to the middle of it!) Then I applied foam onto the circle frame. I love how it gives this mini card a hint of texture!

Fun and Colorful Mini Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I sure hope these fun and colorful mini cards will make their intended recipients smile, and my fingers are crossed they do the same for you!

Happy creating,
Teri Anderson

Dimensional Unicorn Layout

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I’m sharing what I used to create this pretty little unicorn layout with loads of dimension. Here are all the details on how I created by Dimensional Unicorn Layout.

Dimensional Unicorn Layout by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add Dimension Like a Pro

I love to create layouts packed full of texture and dimension. With that comes some tricky things to adhere. Here are some tips. I started creating this layout by tracing a circle (you can use a place or a bowl) in the middle of the background patterned paper. I then used different coordinating coloured pearls to create the wreath around the layout. Some of these were self adhesive, but all of the coloured pearls I had to adhere myself and I used Adhesive Dots Micro.

In the bottom right hand corner of my Dimensional Unicorn Layout I added a large clusters of dimensional flowers. For all of the stems, leaves and flowers I used Adhesive Dots Medium to add them. Sometimes I used more than 1 Adhesive Dot Medium on the flowers, depending on how uneven the backs of them were.

Mat the photo in white cardstock and then cut similar sized pieces of patterned paper that are used as the photos backdrop. I off-set each slightly and adhered them to the background using a combination of Crafty Foam Tape White and E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser. Add the matted photo to the patterned layers using Crafty Foam Tape White.

Finally I added the laser-cut ephemera. I wanted these pieces to stand out from the layered patterned paper in this dimensional layout. So I often used Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix combined with 3D Foam Squares White Mix, this keeps dimension between all layers.
