Fall Foilage Thinking of You Card

Hi, Jamie Martin here with you today with a card full of sparkle and shimmer for Fall. With a combination of adhesives sheets, Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets, and glitter, you too can create this wonderful Fall Foilage card!

Fall Foilage Thinking of You Card by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Start with the Fall Foilage Card Front

Using some wired burlap ribbon, cut off a piece to fit the card panel, and then trim off the wires on each side. Apply a strip of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1″ on the back, and secure it to the tan card panel. Designer’s Tip: to give the panel some interest, I stamped it with a dot background stamp in brown ink.

You aren’t able to see the adhesive through the burlap.

Gather Up the Leaves

Place an Adhesive Sheet 4″ x 6″ on white cardstock keeping the top liner of the Adhesive Sheet on.  Pull up the liner a bit and place black leaf stickers on the Adhesive Sheet cut off that section and replace the liner so you can use the rest later.

Fall Foilage Thinking of You Card by Jamie Martin for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside

Making the Fall Foilage leaves was so much fun! Several techniques were used to embellish them. I used a combination of foil sheets from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheet in Nature Colors and the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheet in Pastel Colors, along with glitter.

Some of the leaves were foiled by rubbing the foil color side UP with your fingertips to transfer the color to the leaf. If there are missed areas, just reapply the foil.

Another technique is to crumble up a piece of foil, rub the foil color side UP and peel off the sheet to reveal distress or vein designs. Next, cover the leaf with crystal glitter and press with your fingertips to secure it into the exposed adhesive.

Other leaves had only glitter to embellish them. Mount all the embellished fall foilage leaves onto the burlap ribbon using E-Z Runner® Squares.

Add the Finishing Touches

Stamp the sentiment on the bottom of the card with black ink. Add thin black glitter washi tape on the top and bottom of the burlap to anchor. Lastly, mount the panel to a black card using the E-Z Runner Squares.

Mail Art Funky Flowers Card

Hello crafty friends! Judy here pulling out some security envelopes that I save from my mail for today’s Funky Flower card. Do you save security envelopes? There are so many different designs! I started this mail art card while away from home with limited supplies, two window security envelopes, and paint markers.

Mail Art Funky Flowers Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create Funky Flowers and Vase

Draw three flowers on a security envelope with blue, pink, dark blue, and white paint markers. Use blue and dark blue paint markers to make lines around the window on the security envelope. Allow the paint to dry. Cut around the window leaving about a 0.25-inch border. I was inspired by a technique for making vases with window security envelopes from a post on Instagram.

Mail Art Funky Flowers Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply Adhesive Sheets to the Flowers

Rough cut flowers from the envelope leaving some of the paper all around them. Peel back the yellow liner of the Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 inch and place one or two flowers on it. Replace the liner and rub over flowers to transfer adhesive, remove the liner, peel off a flower, place it on white cardstock and rub well to secure it. Repeat for other flowers. Fussy cut around each flower. Set aside.

Mail Art Funky Flowers Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Assemble the Card Base

Form a 3.5 x 8.5-inch slimline card base from white cardstock. Then cut a 2.875 x 7.875-inch piece from the security envelope. and from a piece of dark blue cardstock, cut a 4 x 8-inch mat.

Mail Art Funky Flowers Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Attach the security envelope piece to the dark blue mat using E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser. Then apply the adhesive on the back of the layered card panel and place it on the card front.

Lift Up the Vase

Cut off the short end of the window to about 3 inches to form a vase shape.

Mail Art Funky Flowers Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

On the back of the vase, apply 3D Foam Strips around its edges trimming off as needed. Peel the liners off and place the vase on the card front

Mail Art Funky Flowers Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Attach the Funky Flowers

Apply Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix to the blue flower and 3D Foam Squares White Mix to the back of other flowers. Arrange them on the card with stems in the vase, then tip back to peel the liners off, and press in place on the card.

Mail Art Funky Flowers Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The Verse

Stamp a verse with black ink and use a coordinating die to cut a verse strip. Trim off notched ends. Cut a slightly larger mat from dark blue cardstock. Use E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser to apply adhesive to the back of the verse and fasten it to a dark blue mat.

Creative Photo Corner Mat Layout

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I am sharing a quick little tutorial on how to create this fun and texture-filled Creative Photo Corner Mat for your next project. Here are all of the details.

Creative Photo Corner Mat by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Let’s Get Crafty

The first step in creating my Creative Photo Corner Mat, I took my slightly cropped 4×6 photo and cut a regular white cardstock mat for it. Then I cut a larger white cardstock mat for that which was 1/2″ larger in dimension than the previous mat. I took my Creative Photo Corners Silver and added one to the exact middle of each side of the larger mat.

Creative Photo Corner Mat by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, I continued adding Creative Photo Corners Silver around the piece of cardstock to fill in the entire perimeter. Then to finish, added Creative Photo Corners Silver to the corners.

Creative Photo Corner Mat by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adhere the photo to the smaller white cardstock mat using Creative Photo Corners Silver. Now, add this to the larger mat using Crafty Foam Tape White.

I created a simple patterned paper and white cardstock layout background. I adhered all the pieces in place using my E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Add the matted photo to the layout again using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Creative Photo Corner Mat by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Now it’s time to embellish the Creative Photo Corner Mat layout. I used a combination of foam stickers and ephemera around the layout and added some of the pieces using 3D Foam Squares White Mix and others with Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix to add additional dimension.

Creative Photo Corner Mat by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I even added a piece of ephemera directly to the matted photo using Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix.

Foiled Background for Seasonal Cards

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you how easy is to create a unique foiled background for seasonal cards. You can use this technique to create any type of background for your cards.

Foiled Background for Seasonal Cards by Martha Lucia Gomez for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Create the Striped Background

With Crafty Foam Tape White 108 ft. you can make your own design. On this opportunity, I made a striped background using a rectangular piece of white smooth cardstock, Crafty Foam Tape White, and the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Nature Colors.

Foiled Background for Seasonal Cards by Martha Lucia Gomez for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

First, I left space from the top border of the cardstock before applying the strips of Crafty Foam Tape White. Make sure to leave the same amount of space in between the strips. Keep the top liners on the strips.

Foiled Background for Seasonal Cards by Martha Lucia Gomez for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I selected two foil sheets from the Metallic Transfer Foil Nature Colors. I pick the black foil sheet to create a major contrast with the bronze foil to enhance the distressed details.

Foiled Background for Seasonal Cards by Martha Lucia Gomez for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside Technique

This technique is to bring our adhesives out between the layers of paper to the front as customized embellishments in our projects. Not only do I do this, but I’d also like to share a unique way to apply the foil to my strips. To start, I wrinkle the black foil sheet with my hands. This creates a cracked and distressed design in the foil.

Foiled Background for Seasonal Cards by Martha Lucia Gomez for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, I removed the top liner of the first strip, place the foil (color side UP) over the adhesive, and pressed it with my finger. This will transfer the color to the strip. Repeat this step to the rest of the strips until you get a distressed look on them.

Foiled Background for Seasonal Cards by Martha Lucia Gomez for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

You will notice the distressed areas are exposed adhesive and need to be filled. So I bring in the bronze foil and simply press it into each strip to fill in those distressed areas with its color. SO EASY and wow, what a great design!

Foiled Background for Seasonal Cards by Martha Lucia Gomez for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Assemble the card

With the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser, I adhered the decorated layer over the card base.

Foiled Background for Seasonal Cards by Martha Lucia Gomez for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Using 3D Foam Squares White Mix, I placed the stamped image and sentiment over the card front. This lets me create differing heights and dimensions in my design.

Watercolor Resist Technique for Cards

Hi, everyone! Teri here with a fun watercolor resist technique to help you channel your inner artist next time you make handmade cards!

Watercolor Resist Technique for Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This is such a fun mixed media technique! If you are new to mixed media, this great technique for whetting your appetite!

Make the Watercolor Panels

Start by cutting some panels of watercolor paper. Randomly apply the Dual Tip Glue Pen. Let the glue dry completely. I let mine dry overnight.

Watercolor Resist Technique for Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Randomly apply watercolor paint onto your panels. Use a paper towel to pat the excess color off. Rub a baby wipe along the panels, softening the color and removing any paint left on the glue. Let the paper panels dry.

Watercolor Resist Technique for Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
Watercolor Resist Technique for Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

You can make just one resist panel, but I like to make several at one time. That allows me to have panels for lots of projects and to experiment with different color combinations.

Watercolor Resist Technique for Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Once your panels are completely dry, you are going to use them to make some cards.

Make the Card Fronts

Cut a couple of card bases from cardstock. Add a torn page from an old book to each panel. The book pages I used are from a 100-year-old book so the paper is fairly fragile. I recommend putting the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser on the cards and then adding the torn book pages onto them.

Watercolor Resist Technique for Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Die-cut some circles from your watercolor paper panels. Adhere them to your cards and then add some 3D Foam Shapes (I used the 3D Foam Leaves and the 3D Foam Butterflies) on top. Cover the shapes with flock or glitter.

Watercolor Resist Technique for Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Complete your cards by stamping sentiments on strips of cardstock and adding them to your cards. You’ll also want to add a few sequins to your cards as well. Want your cards to have an even more mixed media look? Flick some ink or paint drops on them too!

Watercolor Resist Technique for Cards by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Just some simple layering using ready die-cuts and a technique called Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside will create this fun summer card! Shall we get started?

By using various (thin and normal) 3D Foam Squares, you create a fun dimensional effect.

Making the Card Base

To make the card base for your sunny card, adhere the yellow cardpanel onto a soft green cardpanel using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser. Then adhere upon a white card base using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.

Simply Sunny Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Now remove the liner of one of the 3D Foam Circle Frames White and rub a small piece of Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Pastel Colors onto the 3D Foam Circle Frames White with the colored side facing up. Gently remove the foil. Repeat this with various colors Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Nature Colors and Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Celebrate Colors for the other 3D Foam Circle Frames White.

Simply Sunny Card by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Gone Fishing Again Scrapbook Page

Hi, Connie here with a Gone Fishing Again Scrapbook Page documenting a not-so-fun fish story…well sort of! LOL! I’m using pattern paper by PhotoPlay called The Great Outdoors and some 3D Foam Strips that not only are for word strips but ephemera too. This page also has a fun pocket on it, secured with the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser.

Gone Fishing Again Scrapbook Page by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Gone Fishing Again Page Prep

This is a simple scrapbook page design but a fun one. I love making the photos look like photo strips. To do that just mount them on white cardstock leaving a 1/8- inch border between each photo and then mount on a contrasting piece of cardstock and then trim them to a strip. You can do either a vertical or horizontal photo strip. I used the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser to put it together. No fancy adhesive is needed!

DIY Dimensional Home Decor

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here and today I thought I would share an easy DIY Dimensional Home Decor piece I created with leftover bits of a papercraft collection. Here are all of the details.

DIY Dimensional Home Decor by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Have you ever worked with a paper crafting collection and while scrapbooking or cardmaking thought “that phrase or image would make a great home decor piece”? Well, that is exactly what I thought about the phrase I used for this project. I wanted to create a simple little piece that I could frame and have in my craft room.

Let’s Get Started!

The first step to creating this Dimensional Home Decor piece was to pick out the frame I wanted to use. The opening for this is 5 x 7-inch, and the frame is about 8 x 10-inch. I cut a piece of chipboard as a base that was 8 x 10-inch to fit in the frame. Using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser I adhered a 6×8 piece of patterned paper to the chipboard base. I like to use E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser in most of my home decor pieces, that way I know they will stay together and last.

DIY Dimensional Home Decor by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Mat the Dimensional Home Decor sentiment in white cardstock and add Creative Photo Corners White to the corners. I just love how this always frames focal pieces and adds a little bit of texture and dimension.

DIY Dimensional Home Decor by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Add the sentiment to the chipboard base using 3D Foam Squares White Regular Size. I also picked out a couple of cardstock stickers to coordinate. First I used cornstarch to de-stick the backs. Then added them to the Dimensional Home Decor piece using 3D Foam Squares White Regular Size.
