Using Versamark, WOW! Embossing Powder and a background stamp creates the background for the card. Designer’s note: You will also need to heat emboss the stamped background to set the embossing powder.
Clean up the sides of the card by trimming the card edges.
Using the Crafty Foam Tape 108′ adhere it to the back of the embossed background and then adhere to the front of the black cardstock. Adhere the large label to the embossed background Then add the Statue of Liberty and the sentiment strip to the card front with 3D Foam Circle White Mix.
The Second Card Design
With the same steps, create a vertical card keeping in mind the card elements will be flipped. It’s just that easy!
Once you do the first card the second one goes fast. All you are doing is switching the direction and placement of the embellishments. It is a fun one and I hope you will give it a try!!
Hi everyone, Yvonne here to celebrate and sparkle with a 4th of July card! Let’s shine for the upcoming 4th of July celebration using sparkly items to Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside with glitter. Shall we get this party getting started? Let me show you how I made my card.
Celebrate & Sparkle
We’re adding sparkle to this card, using the Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside technique. Instead of hiding your adhesives between layers of cardstock or materials, they become the embellishment or accent on your project. On this 4th of July card, this technique will be used to make an all-over glitter card!
Prepping the Card Panel
Trim a piece of white cardstock to a rectangular shape for the card panel. Next, place a strip of Premium Double-Sided Tape 1-inch horizontally. Continue to cover the entire panel in this fashion, making sure are no gaps between the tape.
Make sure that everything has securely adhered, and even by using a bone folder.
Now for the fun part! Remove the liners of the first, third, and seventh stripe (tape). Then cover the exposed adhesive with red glitter. Push and burnish the glitter into the adhesive to secure. Tap off the excess.
Remove the liner from the remaining stripes (the second, fourth, and sixth tape). These stripes will be in blue. I used two types of glitter. First, sprinkle the glitter with little stars and tap off. Then use fine blue glitter to fill in. A fun way to create with glitter! But wait, there’s more! LOL!
Die-cut the stars from a white sheet of 3D Foam Creative Sheets Mix. This gives you beautiful star shapes with dimensions. It cuts like butter without dulling or have build-up on your blades. Carefully remove the liner and adhere the stars to the glittered top card panel.
Use your fingers to rub the star shapes onto the card to affix it firmly. Cut off any excess with scissors or a craft knife. Next, remove the top liner of the stars and sprinkle white glitter on top. Don’t forget to push the glitter in to secure and then tap off any excess. That’s how you Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside!
Finish the Card
Create a white card base slightly larger than the glittered card panel. Adhere the card panel to the card base with Crafty Foam Tape 108ft.
For the sentiment, stamp with embossing ink onto a piece of black cardstock and sprinkle white embossing powder. Melt the with a heating tool. Cut to a banner shape and adhere it to the card using 3D Foam Squares Black Mix.
Voila! Your Celebrate & Sparkle 4th of July Card is ready to shine!

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing how to create a piece of patriotic home décor using 3D Foam Strips and Transfer Foil Sheets. This red, white, and blue wood Uncle Sam is a great way to decorate for national holidays or to show your patriotism all year long.
The summer months cover patriotic holidays in the US such as Memorial Day, Flag Day and 4th of July. These occasions are often celebratory in nature, and I enjoy gathering with friends and family, decorating, sharing a meal, and all the entertainment that goes with it. I know I will be able to display this décor piece several times a year.
How to Add Pizazz to Wood Décor
I started this fun project by first adding color to the wood pieces using acrylic paint. After the paint dried, I assembled the Uncle Sam using Extreme Double-Sided Tape. Once the décor piece was painted and assembled, it was time to embellish!
I added a soft sparkly finish to the beard by first applying a layer of glue using the 1/2-inch wide brush on the Dual Tip Glue Pen, and then sprinkling on glittered white flocking powder.
Next, I added a small button to the light blue wood star, securing the embellishment with an Adhesive Dot Medium.
To add stripes to the Uncle Sam hat, I applied 3D Foam Strips to the top portion of the hat at a slight angle fanning out from the center. Next, I peeled away the easy release liner and pressed a piece of Holographic Metallic Transfer Foil over the adhesive. The shimmer really catches the light!
For me, Uncle Sam is a symbol of our great nation, and he serves as a great reminder to pause and give thanks to those who have made sacrifices to secure our freedoms. I want to give special thanks to my fellow military families and friends for their service.
Hello everyone! Judy here to share how to use Premium Tape and WOW! Embossing Powders to create a stunning heat embossed background for cards and other projects!
Heat Embossed Background
Let’s start with a piece of 5.5 x 8.5-inch tan cardstock as the card panel. I thought the color would blend in and not be obvious if it showed between tape strips. You can make any size card panel you want!
Designer’s Tip: press the embossing powder into the tape with the fingertips to be sure there is good coverage and the powders are secured.
Use a heating tool to melt embossing powders over the entire piece. See the magic happen for a stunning heat embossed background. But we’re not done yet!
The Stamping Details
Randomly stamp the flower image across the 1-inch Opaque Primary Angel Eyes (turquoise color) embossed areas with dark brown ink. Use scratch paper to mask off the gold strips to protect it from the stamping.
Next, stamp the script design with black ink across entire piece for another layer of design. Rub off any ink on the gold strips with a paper towel.
With two different flourish stamps and Versafine Black Onyx ink, randomly stamp two-three flourishes at a time. Cover with Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine Embossing Powder, tap off excess and heat to emboss. Repeat to cover the entire piece. When cooled, cut the card panel to 3.75 x 5.50-inch.
Beautiful Bold Black Accents
Cut a 1 x 5.50-inch strip of black cardstock and apply Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/8in along the 5.50-inch edge. Remove the top liner and cover it with the Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine Embossing Powder. Tap off the excess and melt with a heating tool.
Stamp the birthday greetings using Versafine Onyx Black ink and Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine Embossing Powder. Melt with a heating tool. Trim paper as needed.
I hope you’ve enjoyed learning how to make this heat embossed background! I plan to make a few more pieces to have on hand for a quick card. Just imagine all the color combinations with different embossing powders and stamping!

Let’s start with my white cardstock card panel. For a punch of bold, textured, and beautiful black sentiment, I used the WOW! Embossing Pad and WOW! Primary Ebony Embossing Powder to the cardstock.
Since I had the WOW! products out, I stamped and embossed some of the floral designs, and others using a plain black ink on white cardstock. This is a great way to add some subtle texture differences between the images. Cut the images out and set aside.
For the background, I added a blended Distress Oxide ink section around the sentiment and the right side of the card panel. Using the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser, run strips of adhesive on top of the inked area. For a more distressed background, I rubbed little sections of the adhesive off using my finger.
Place a piece of the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Variety Colors in teal on top of the adhesive strips, color side UP. Then gently rub the foil with your finger to transfer the color. Pull away the foil and WOW! Refoil if there are missed areas.
Sometimes you have the perfect title piece within a collection and other times you have to create your own. Would you have ever guessed that an adhesive combined with WOW! Embossing Powder can help with that? Christine joining you today to showcase a fabulous technique with our 3D Creative Foam Sheets on my Dream Scrapbook Layout! Let’s dive in!
Dream Scrapbook Layout Title
Today I am going to be sharing one of my favorite, creative techniques with our adhesives on this Dream Scrapbook Layout! All you need is 3D Foam Creative Sheets and WOW! Embossing Powder. I used the 3D Foam Creative Sheets White Medium. These sheets allow you to cut out the adhesive into any size or shape that you want.
These sheets are foam with adhesive on both sides. Once you have cut out your shape – peel back the top layer. Add embossing powder to the exposed adhesive. Heat it up and allow it to cool down. Then you can peel off the bottom adhesive and you have a sticker ready to use!
The Metallic Silver Embossing Powder from WOW! Embossing Powder was used and it came out really neat! The texture it adds is absolutely gorgeous. I opted to adhere to the white cardstock and then cut around that to create a backdrop for my title. Using the Dual Tip Glue Pen, I adhered the title to the layout.
Other 3D Foam Adhesives
I’ve shown you the magic you can make with 3D Creative Foam Sheets but don’t forget the basics of 3D Foam Squares and how they too can transform a layout. I used them to pop up the flowers in this corner.
Sometimes you want even more height – this butterfly has double layers of 3D Foam Squares under the wings to give the illusion of them lifting off the page.
Dream Scrapbook Layout Process Video
All of these ideas are highlighted in my process video – let’s have a look!
Hi, everyone! Looking to add some texture to your next card or scrapbook page. Teri here and I’ll show you a fun way to do that by creating faux clay tiles with 3D Foam Creative Sheets and embossing powders. This technique will add so much pop to your paper crafting projects!
Remove the top liner from each of the triangles. Cover with the embossing powder on the triangles. No need for any ink, just powder! I used a combination of WOW! embossing powder in Jealous Guy embossing powder and Totally Teal embossing glitter.
Take a heat gun and melt the embossing powders. I find a piercing tool (or tweezers) are helpful in holding the foam in place. As you heat up the foam, it might curl but not to worry! It will be just fine in the end!
Once melted, it will look like you’ve applied clay tiles and not foam onto your project!

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a Father’s day card idea. Use a grid design with game pieces for a unique masculine look! Then make your dad shine by adding glittery embossing powder using Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside concept! I’ll show you how in my tutorial.
Positioning the Grid Design
Using some wooden scrabble game letters to spell out “Best Dad Ever” and use the blank ones to fill in the rest of the grid design. The blank ones are really unpopular letters (like Q) turned blank side up. LOL!
On a piece of the black cardstock card panel, draw a grid using a pencil and a ruler. Note the grid size is about ¼-inch larger than the size of the wooden letter tiles.
The Grid Card Base & Layer
After finishing the grid card panel, I created another layer to mat the grid. A soft blue cardstock was my choice which I adhered with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Then you can then determine the size of the card base you are going to make. Use the same adhesive to attach the layered card panel to the white card base.
Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside Concept
We will be using Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/8in onto all of the grid lines. Start with the vertical lines first. Make sure to rub the tape for extra secure hold. Then remove the liners. Make sure your desk is clean so nothing will stick to the tape.
Hi, Connie here with a really fun and cool project to create an embossed background for a mixed media style card. Using the leftover sheet from the 3D Foam Circles White Mix, WOW! Embossing Powder and stamps, I show how to make these wonderful cards.
Embossed Background Steps
There were still some 3D Foam Circles White Mix on the sheets so I remove them by placing them on an empty liner sheet and set aside.
Remove the top liner of the leftover sheet and cover the entire surface with the WOW! embossing powder.
Shake off excess and emboss with a heat embossing tool.
Next, emboss three 3D Foam Circles in the regular size using the same embossing powder.
Stamp sea shell and leaf images with colored inks. Then emboss with WOW! Embossing Powder in clear. I also used their embossing pen to touch up my stamped images that did not stamp clean. Set aside. Let’s work on the card layers.
Using various Distress Oxide ink colors that would match the embossed background, I created a mixed media card panel. When I achieved my desired look, peel off the back liner of the embossing background, and adhere to the inked card panel.
Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a fun kids craft tutorial for DIY bouncy glitter balls. It’s only two weeks into summer vacation and I have heard the phrase ‘I’m bored’ more times than I care to count. This simple project uses two basic craft staples and one common household item.
In less than 15 minutes my kids had several bouncy balls that produced hours of fun! The WOW! Sparkles Premium Glitter that I mixed into the ball shown above catches the light is a fantastic way.
DIY Glitter Bouncy Ball Tutorial
Dissolve 1 tablespoon of Borax into 3/4 cup of warm water.
Squeeze 1 tablespoon of Dual Tip Glue Pen Clear Glue into a small container. Sprinkle a small amount of WOW! Sparkles Premium Glitter onto the glue. Stir to combine.
Pour the glitter glue mixture into the Borax solution. Press and squeeze the glitter glue together with your fingers until the mixture is no longer sticky.
Remove the glitter glob from the Borax solution and roll into a ball shape.
Bouncy Ball Storage
The bouncy balls will eventually dry out if left exposed to air. My kids were happy to zip their balls into a plastic bag. I wanted something a little cuter to hold my bouncy balls so I upcycled a small glass jar.
1. Apply embossing ink onto a stamp and press onto patterned paper (or cardstock). Sprinkle on WOW! Mermaid Tails Embossing Glitter. Tap off the excess powder and apply heat to set.
2. Use a 6×12 Inch Adhesive Sheet to create a sticker. Punch a circle from the adhesive sheet. Remove the yellow backing paper and align the paper onto the adhesive. Remove the back liner and adhere to the project.
These bouncy balls will flatten over time. Warm the ball in your hand and roll to reshape to continue the fun. Thanks for stopping by today! ~Dana Tatar
