Easy Steps to Create 3D Foam Pennant Mother’s Day Card

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I thought I’d share a card to celebrate her using 3D Foam Pennants as an accent and how I embellished them.

3D Foam Pennant Mother's Day Card by Margie Higuchi

First I embellished the 3D Foam Pennants with an embossing folder for design and dimension. I used waxed paper to place them (with the top liner on) in the folder embossing in my manual die cutting machine.

MargieHiguchi 3DFoamPennantMothersDayThankUCd May042015 Step1

Then I cut/embossed die templates to create my card panel and a die cut to create a center focal.

MargieHiguchi 3DFoamPennantMothersDayThankUCd May042015 Step2

Going back to the 3D Foam Pennants, I used the Pigment Powder – Pink (coming soon!) to color each pennant. You only need a little bit of the powder (I used the powder that was stuck in the lid). I love how it shimmers – not sure if you can see it through the image but it is beautiful!

MargieHiguchi 3DFoamPennantMothersDayThankUCd May042015 Step3

I adhered the pennant on the upper left corner after I adhered the card panel with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips. Lastly, I adhered the circular die cut in the center.

MargieHiguchi 3DFoamPennantMothersDayThankUCd May042015 Step4

Using the DODZ™ – Medium, the flowers were secured on top of the die cut in a cluster.

MargieHiguchi 3DFoamPennantMothersDayThankUCd May042015 Step5

To accent the flower cluster, I sprinkled white glitter on top of two 3D Swirls and tucked them underneath the flowers :)

MargieHiguchi 3DFoamPennantMothersDayThankUCd May042015 Step6

Stamped a sentiment onto patterned paper, handcut a ribbon trail banner and secured it with 3D Foam Squares – Black, Regular for dimension. For a finishing touch, four small pearls were added on the 3D Foam Pennants.

 Hello everyone, Christine here today with a ‘Happy Birthday to you’ card!  This is a nice simple make and using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products make it super easy.

CEmberson - Happy Birthday 1

First off I make a kraft card base and matted patterned paper (Kaisercraft – Rustic Harmony) using MyStik® Permanent Strips.

I created a die cut panel and used Crafty Power Tape to ensure my wrapped twine was nice and secure on the reverse.

Sometimes securing an embellishment on top of ribbon and twine can be a little bit tricky but Dodz™ are perfect for this.

You Rock Card

Hey there crafters! It’s Lisa here with you and I have a card to share that’s a bit out of the norm for me. Really clean and graphic, but I LOVED making it!

LisaAdametz-YouRock-1

Look at all that pretty GOLD!

1. First create the card base. Super simple. 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ A2 sized card, scored on the horizontal edge.

2. I made the die-cuts that I required using a steel-ruled die for the bottom of the card.

3.  Using the MyStik® Repositionable Dots I temporarily adhered the pieces together. Once in place, I could trim off unnecessary paper and rough edges, then adhere permanently with MyStik® Permanent Permanent Strips.

4. For perfectly aligned die-cut words here is my trick: figure out how much cardstock you’ll need to die-cut three of your words. Trim that out. Then apply that piece of cardstock to a piece of the Adhesive Sheets (cut to the same size) and start die cutting your words. When you peel the adhesive backing off each word, they’ll be sticky and line up perfectly.

5. Since the back of the word “you” is sticky, the gold thread is super easy to create a beautiful nest of and tuck behind.

6. To create the diamond “rock”, it’s much the same except the layers are a tiny bit different. I used 1 layer of 3D Foam Creative Sheets and 1 layer of black cardstock which had been cut to size (as in step 4.) All the layers were die-cut the same, EXCEPT prior to diecutting the 3D Foam Creative Sheets I had already burnished it with gold foil.

7. Die-cut a circle out of cardstock weight vellum. Stick diamond “rock” on top. Place teeny pieces of 3D Foam Squares Small, Black underneath (so that they can’t be seen).

Lots of adhesive to create this pretty card!

Wow You’re Awesome card using Adhesive Sheets

Hello,

AJ here with card showing how to apply foil to your die cuts using Adhesive Sheets.

AJOtto-Awesome-1

I still love using foil, I hope it doesn’t go away any time soon.  I don’t actually use it enough!  For my card today, I added foil to the Awesome die cut by using our Adhesive Sheets and white card stock.

AJOtto-Awesome-2

To get started, remove the yellow backing from the Adhesive Sheet, and lay down your card stock.  I place the yellow layer on top and lightly burnish the whole piece.
AJOtto-Awesome-3Here my die cut is has the white backing removed and is ready with the adhesive on the front side of my die.

AJOtto-Awesome-4

I laid the die cut, sticky side down onto the backside of the foil.  I want to make sure it gets a light burnish, and it’s easier to see from this side.

AJOtto-Awesome-5

I stamped my card panel, added some stenciling and ink splatters and mounted it using Crafty Foam Tape and then adhered my foil die cut.

AJOtto-Awesome-6

Once all adhered to my card base, I add a few sequins to finish it off.

AJOtto-Awesome-7

Isn’t that foil just Awesome?! 😉

enjoy! :)

Above And Beyond – Card Tutorial With E-Z Stars Runner

Hello everyone! Asia King here and today I am sharing a quick masculine birthday card.

Above and beyond_Asia King2

First start off by preparing your card base. Fold a piece of black cardstock in half and die cut the Cabinet card. Make sure to position the folded edge just inside the die’s blade, so the fold remains uncut.

Next die cut another single piece from the patterned paper for the front of the card and fussy cut 3 vintage balloons in varying sizes.

Above and beyond_Asia King1

1. Using E-Z Stars® Refillable Runner randomly add several stars to your front panel. Cover the stars with Gold Pigment Powder and rub the pigment in with your fingers. Wipe off the excess with a dry cloth.

2. Using a DIY mica spray made with the Gold Pigment Powder spray some splatters onto the card. Add a light mist with a hair spray to protect the pattern from rubbing off. Allow to dry. Wrap some twine around the panel.

3. Add Crafty Foam Tape – Black to the back of the panel and adhere the panel to the card base.

4. Stamp the sentiment in black onto a scrap of paper and cut it to form a little banner. Distress the edges.

5. Add some black Thin 3D Foam Squares to the back of the banner and adhere to the card.

6. Add some black Thin 3D Foam Squares to the back of the smaller balloons and adhere them to the card.

7. Add some black 3D Foam Squares – Small to the back of the biggest balloon and adhere to the card.

8. Cover some small 3D Foam Stars with Gold Pigment Powder and adhere to the card.

Navy Fun Scrapbook Layout

Latisha here with you, sharing a scrapbook page I recently made.  This was originally a complete photo tutorial, however my photos got lost in the cloud somewhere lol.  This page has 4 photos each sized 4 inches by 4 inches.  Sometimes I like to pocket scrapbook, sometimes I will do a layout with one picture, but most of the time I like to incorporate several pictures.  Call me old timey, but I like pages to tell a complete story.

From the photos, it is a little obvious that my husband is in the Navy.  We have some of the best friends one could ever hope for, thanks to the Navy.  In the layout below we had attended a change of command dinner.  This is where the spouses and uniformed member get dressed up, and say their final goodbyes to the CO of the command.  Sometimes I get whiney about going, but they always end up being fun, we get to carry on a tradition, and hang out with great people.

1.  I started by trimming down my photos to 4×4 inch squares.

2.  Then I adhered the photos to a 8 1/4 squared white card stock using the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L EZ Dots Permanent Refillable tape runner.

3.  I adhered the gold anchor diecut over the photos using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Foam Tape.

4.  Adhere the tags and die cuts using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L EZ Dots Permanent Refillable tape runner.

5. Adhere the star & anchor button to the layout using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares (white, regular)

6. Journal
