Hello friends! I had fun putting together this mini but Tall Happy Birthday Banner! The letters have dimensions to really stand out. Twine and buttons add charm!
Cut Letters and Tags in the Birthday Banner
From aqua cardstock, cut 13 tags. (Approximately 5/8 x 3 1/8 inches)
Cut a piece of blue cardstock large enough for all the letters to be die-cut on. Next, cut a piece of 3D Foam Creative Sheets Medium White the same size. Remove liner from it and place the cardstock on it. Then, use alphabet dies and die-cutting machine to cut letters for “HAPPY BIRTHDAY”.
Fasten Letters to Tags
Peel the liner from the back of each letter and secure each to a tag. Use a ruler to help align letters to keep them evenly spaced from the bottom of each tag.
Attach Tags to String
Score each tag at 1/2 and 5/8 inches from the top. Bend tag on score lines.
Hello crafty friends and welcome! I had so much fun creating this super fun Pumpkin Advice in a Tag. Featuring the Self-Laminating Tags with Loops, and the Advice From A Pumpkin stamp sent from The Rabbit Hole Designs, I thought what a cool bag tag for a new college student. It will be a positive reminder that can be attached to a backpack or bookbag.
Pumpkin Advice in a Tag Step Outs
A – You need a piece of white coloring cardstock and orange cardstock, each cut to 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″.
B – Stamp one of the pumpkin images from the Pumpkin stamps onto the white cardstock with Almond Cream Nuvo ink and color it with alcohol markers. Use Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink to stamp the sentiments “Advice from a Pumpkin”, “Keep growing”, “Think big”, and “shine from within” over the colored pumpkin image.
C – Handwrite “Name”, “Email”, and “Phone #” evenly spaced on the orange cardstock and use a ruler to draw a line after each word with a 08 permanent black Zig Marker.

Hi, everyone! Got kiddos heading back to school? Teri here, and here’s a fun idea for you! I created some backpack name tags for an adorable way to personalized and accent their backpacks!
They are so easy and so fun to create! And the best part is you can customize the tags, just for them!
Backpack Name Tag for Bo
Start by cutting a panel of cardstock to fit inside a self-laminating tag’s pouch. Decorate the panel with patterned paper.
Stamp an image on the panel. Color it in with markers. Use letter stickers (or letter stamps…. or your own handwriting) to spell out your student’s name! Add an adhesive star and cover it with flock or glitter. Complete the panel by drawing a few lines or dots on it with a pen.
Place the panel in the tag’s pouch and seal it up! Add the loop to the panel and hang it on your student’s backpack.
Backpack Name Tag for Sue
While this tag was made for a boy, it’s easy to switch up your design and make a backpack name tag for girl. Change your color scheme or use different stamped images. In this case, I just stamped a girl rather than a boy for it.
One for Ted with a Simple Design
When making your name tags, don’t feel you have to color in your stamped images! Coloring can be stressful and time-consuming! Instead you can also change up your design by simply stamping images on bright patterned papers, just like I did here.
So easy and so fun! The colorful background papers make the images pop!
I hope you are inspired to make a few backpack name tags for the students in your life! Thanks for stopping by today!
Hello crafty friends! Tracy here and today I am sharing a unique and simple dimensional card, Six Feet Away. We’ve been through a lot this past year and a half ALL over the world. Why not share a little giggle with someone you love. LOL! See all of the details below.
Add the matted sentiment piece to the card using two layers of 3D Foam Squares White Mix. This will give lots of room to add different layers of dimension to this card.
To add the ephemera pieces around the matted sentiment of this simple dimensional card, I used a combination of 3D Foam Squares White Mix and Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix to give space and dimension between the layers. Start by adding the lower layers and work your way up.
The finished project is a snarky little dimensional card that is sure to bring a smile to someone you care about.
Hi, Connie here with a fun project, Makes You Happy Mixed Media Card, using scraps from my stash and the wonderful Adhesive Sheets. They really make things easy when using a cutting die. Let me show you.
The mixed media prints, used on this card, were created using a Gel Press and Fresco Chalk paint. They were hanging out in my stash, just waiting to be created with.
Happy Mixed Media Card Background
1. Decide on the area you wish to cut. I’m using a Postage Stamp cutting die. I’m only using the Adhesive Sheets on the medium die cut as shown in the photo. 2. Run the mixed media paper (with the adhesive sheet attached to the back of the paper) through the die cutting machine. 3. Remove the cutting die from the paper, peel off the liner and adhere to the larger die cut, as shown in focal photo.
Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a unique dimensional TV Frame Card. I had so much fun making this TV frame card!
With the help of the Dual Tip Glue Pen, I was able to not only glue but also help accent the card. Are you curious how I made the card? Come on and join me and let me show you how to create the card!
Making the TV Frame
For the TV frame, I used a steel rule die and die-cut the TV from chipboard. Cover the TV by rubbing a brown chalk ink pad over it.
Next I used a black inkpad to accent the edges of the shape and to color the smaller parts. Because I want to use embossing powder, I used the Dual Tip Glue Pen to secure the embossing powder to the die cut.
Simply rub some glue over the shape and sprinkle the brown transparent embossing powder over it. Use a heating tool to melt the powder.
Now, I applied metallic wax over the TV antennas and the panels. Adhere the parts onto the TV frame using the Dual Tip Glue Pen. For the TV screen background, I adhered a piece of black cardstock (which I hand cut using scissors) to the back of the TV frame using the Dual Tip Glue Pen. Lastly, adhere the woman figure into the TV screen with 3D Foam Squares Black Mix.
Making the Card Panel
First I cut out a piece of patterned cardstock to a rectangular shape. Then tear a piece of cotton flower paper and adhere it onto the card panel with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.
To embellish the card panel, I wrapped some twine around the card panel. Place a sentiment sticker onto a piece of corrugated cardstock and mat with a piece of black cardstock using the EZ Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser before adhering it to the card panel.
Hi there, Jamiehere with you today with a bright and cheerful You are Fabulous background card tutorial. Send out it to friends on these warm summer days! One thing that I love doing is to make my own backgrounds, that way no matter what I’m making, I don’t have to worry about having the right colors or styles of decorative papers.
Creating My Fabulous Background
The product I find myself reaching for the most to make my background is the Crafty Power Tape Polybag 81ft. because it is heat resistant – you can sprinkle it with embossing powder and heat it with your heat gun without losing its shape.
The Dual Tip Glue Pen was used to attach the sun since I needed to make sure that the circle was in the right position, I needed to slide it around a bit.
Cards are always a little more fun with a bit of dimension, so I added 3D Foam Circles to the back of the watercolored bird. Even though this adds dimension, it can still be mailed without a problem.
Hello friends! Today, I raided my stash of ribbons to make this card. I’m on a mission to reduce some of my stash….ultimately this didn’t make a dent in it but it’s a fun way to use ribbons! So easy with Extreme Double-Sided Tape!
Ribbon Card Background Prep
Choose an assortment of red, brown, and cream ribbons in a variety of patterns and sizes, I used seven types on this card. Cut a piece of Walnut cardstock to 3.25 x 5.75 inches.
Layout the ribbon pattern as desired. This will help determine the width of the ribbon border. Use measurement to choose what size Extreme Double-Sided Tape to best use for the project. For this card, four pieces of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2in will hold all the ribbon.
Designer Tip: Take a photo to help remember the ribbon pattern.
Remove the liner on tape near the edge. Hold the first ribbon at each end to pull it straight but not stretched, align with the tape edge, and press in place. Trim ribbon ends to extend slightly beyond cardstock. Continue to remove the tape liner and add ribbons aligning each against the edge of the previous ribbon. Press in place.
Hello crafty friends! Tracy here and today I’m back with another Dimensional Layout step-by-step tutorial to share. I love adding dimension and texture to my creations, and thought today I would take you through my process when I create.
The second step is to start adding the paper die cut embellishments around the matted photo. This is also key for creating a dimensional layout. By using a combination of 3D Foam Squares White Mix and Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix, I added these pieces. Even the difference of using Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix gives enough space between layers to add dimension without adding too much dimension.
My final step is to add the very dimensional flowers to the layout. I love to use Adhesive Dots Large to add these securely. Depending on the texture and weight of the flower, sometimes I will double up the Adhesive Dots Large to really make sure it’s down.
These few little tricks will hopefully help with your next dimensional layout.
Hello, my crafty friends, Jenn Gross here! I’ve designed a fun Sunshine Wishes 3D slimline box card It folds flat to measure at 3 1/4″ x 8 1/4″. It includes a 3D relaxing pond scene. Using the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8″ to adhere this card together, I am confident that this super-strong tape holds the folds with no problem! Let’s get started. Enjoy!
Sunshine Wishes Stamp Art
Stamp three image from the Pond Pampering stamp set in light peach ink onto premium marker-friendly paper. I colored each image with alcohol markers creating a no line coloring. Steps A – C images are what I colored from the stamps, and then die-cut each piece afterward.
Step D shows how the card front (8 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ green cardstock) is scored at 1/4″ and 1″ mark on the short side (3 1/4″) of the cardstock. Next, mountain fold the score lines on the left side towards the card back to crease the lines. Position the following stamped die cuts on the card front: kitten in the back, Frog and duck in middle, and fuzzy duck on top. Using these die cuts as guides, you are determining the rectangular window opening for this slimline box card.
Placement of Stamp Images
In Step E, the rectangle die opening is 3 5/8″ x 2 3/8″. After determining placement, make sure to leave 5/8″ of green framing the bottom of the card front, and secure the die with washi tape. Die cut the window opening
Use a piece of 8 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ white cardstock as the card back in Step F. On the short side, scored at the 7 1/2″ and 8 1/4″ marks. Valley fold the score lines on the right side of the card back forward towards the card front.
The Step G Image shows using both the green card front with the window and the white card back together as a guide, see where the window opening will fall when the card is popped open. Set the kitten die cut down in the opening and gently pencil sketch an extension of the image (grass and pond) on the white cardstock back and color the extension. Also, add a light blue sky shading on the page where the kitten will be placed
Add 3D Foam Squares to the back of the kitten die cut and attach the image over the colored extension as shown in Steps H and I.
Assemblying the Sunshine Wishes Box Card Part 1
With a piece of 8 1/2″ x 1″ light blue cardstock, score on the short side at 1/2″ and 8″. Fold the 1/2″ tabs inward to each other and attach Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8″ to the 1/2″ tab as shown in Step J.
Then remove the liner and attach the right side of the blue strip to the bottom right of the white card back. Make sure to line up the edge of the blue strip with the 7 1/2″ fold (see Image K) and set aside.
In Step L, cut 2 1/4″ x 7 3/4″ strips of heavy white cardstock to use a stabilizer and attach a strip of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8″ to one side of each strip.
Next, in Step M, remove the liner and attach one strip to the inside area (above the window opening) of the green card front. Do not cover any of the score lines. Attach the other white strip to the inside bottom 5/8″ area below the window frame.
Assemblying the Box Card Part 2
Gather the green card front and the white card back pieces and align the 5/8″ bottom of the green front to the bottom of the white card back’s blue strip. Add Extreme Double-Sided tape to the top of the 1/4″ folded edge of the right side of the card back and the 1/2″ fold of the left side of the blue strip as shown in Images N and O. Add Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8″ to the 1/4″ fold on the left card front as pictured.
In Step P, remove the liner from the blue strip and attach it to the 3/4″ side, lining up the edge of the 1/4″ score line of the green card front.
Image Q shows a piece of 7 1/2″ x 1″ green cardstock strip die-cut with a grass edge die at the top of the green strip. Add Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8″ and attach it to the green card front, from the right lower edge to the first score line fold on the left side. Position the frog and duck images and adhere it to the blue strip, lining up the frog’s eye just between the cat paw and the rock when folded flat.
The Final Steps
Remove the liner from the 1/4″ folded edge of the white card back and attach it to the inside edge of the green card front. Next take the liner off from the 1/4″ folded edge of the green cardstock (the opposite side previously connected) fold the card flat and attach this last edge together (Image R).
As shown in Step S, the card will now fold to a flat 3 1/4″ x 8 1/4″ slimline card. These photos share how the left side (T) and the right side (U) of the card look when unfolded.
Complete the card front by attaching the fuzzy duck image to the left side of the card, overhanging the edge 3/4″ and on top of the grass edge. Next, die-cut four clouds ranging in length from 3/4″ to 2″ wide. Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment “Sending you Sunshine Wishes” on the large cloud in Silver embossing powder and attach all with Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8″ to complete the Sunshine Wishes 3D box slimline card.
