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!!

Celebrate & Sparkle for the 4th!

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 for the 4th Card Tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Celebrate & Sparkle for the 4th Card Tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I used seven rows of the Premium Double-Sided Tape 1-inch. Cut off any excess with a pair of scissors.

Celebrate & Sparkle for the 4th Card Tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Make sure that everything has securely adhered, and even by using a bone folder.

Celebrate & Sparkle for the 4th Card Tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Sparkle On

Celebrate & Sparkle for the 4th Card Tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Celebrate & Sparkle for the 4th Card Tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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!

Celebrate & Sparkle for the 4th Card Tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Outstanding Stars

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.

Celebrate & Sparkle for the 4th Card Tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
Celebrate & Sparkle for the 4th Card Tutorial by Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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!

Uncle Sam Patriotic Décor

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.

Uncle Sam Patriotic Décor by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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!

Uncle Sam Patriotic Décor by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Uncle Sam Patriotic Décor by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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!

Uncle Sam Patriotic Décor by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Heat Embossed Background Birthday Card

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 Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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!

Heat Embossed Background Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Apply alternating pieces of Premium Double-Sided Tape 1 inch and Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4 inch on the card panel. Burnish the tapes well with a bone folder.

Heat Embossed Background Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Remove the top liners from the Premium Double-Sided Tape 1 inch first and sprinkle with WOW! Opaque Primary Angel Eyes Embossing Powder. Tap off the excess.

Heat Embossed Background Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Next, remove the top liners from the Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4 inch and cover with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine Embossing Powder. Tap off the excess.

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.

Heat Embossed Background Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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

Heat Embossed Background Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Heat Embossed Background Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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

Heat Embossed Background Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Heat Embossed Background Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Card Assembly

Create a 4.25 x 5.50-inch (A2 size) card base from ivory cardstock. Secure the black cardstock strip about a 1/8-inch from the open edge using E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser. Adhere the embossed card panel to the card front using E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.

Heat Embossed Background Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Place Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix in regular size to the back of the Happy Birthday sentiment. Next, cut one Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix in regular size into thirds and apply them to the back of the narrow sentiment. Adhere both sentiments to the card front.

Heat Embossed Background Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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!

Thinking of You Embellished Card Tutorial

Hello, my crafty friends! Tracy here and today I have a sweet Thinking of You card full of fun embellishment ideas to share using one of my favourite adhesives, the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser. Try these techniques on your next project.

Thinking of You Embellished Card Tutorial by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Thinking of You Card Step Outs

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.

Thinking of You Embellished Card Tutorial by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Adding Background

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.

Thinking of You Embellished Card Tutorial by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Thinking of You Embellished Card Tutorial by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Mat and adhere the distressed card panel to the black cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser. Lastly, adhere to the white cardstock card base.

Final Details

Add the fussy cut stamped, and embossed floral images up the side of the card using a combination of 3D Foam Squares White Mix and Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix for a difference in dimension between layers.

Thinking of You Embellished Card Tutorial by Tracy McLennon for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

That’s it for my Thinking of You card! A quick and easy distressed background with just a few simple ideas.

Dream Scrapbook Layout

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 by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Dream Scrapbook Layout by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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!

Dream Scrapbook Layout by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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

Dream Scrapbook Layout by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Dream Scrapbook Layout by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Faux Clay Tiles Tutorial

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!

Faux Clay Tiles Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Creating Faux Clay Tiles

Faux Clay Tiles Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

To start, cut a square shape of foam from a 3D Foam Creative Sheet Medium White. It can be as big or as small as you’d like. Then, cut that square into four triangles.

Faux Clay Tiles Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Faux Clay Tiles Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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!

Faux Clay Tiles Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Using the Tiles to Make a Card

To turn your triangle tiles into a card like mine, use a ruler and black pen to draw a border around them. Then add some stamped or die-cut embellishments with a combination of E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser and 3D Foam Strips

Faux Clay Tiles Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I always like to add a bit of glitz to my projects so I applied Stroke of Midnight glitter to the center of one of the flowers. A few sequins were adhered to using Adhesive Dots Micro.

Faux Clay Tiles Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Then stamp a sentiment to your card and done!

Faux Clay Tiles Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Another Tile Idea

By the way, this technique is not limited to making faux clay triangles, squares and lines are also an option!

Faux Clay Tiles Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

For this card, I cut three strips from a square of 3D Foam Creative Sheet White Medium and added embossing powder to them. Doesn’t the faux clay tiles make a great background for the cat?!

Faux Clay Tiles Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Not much bling was added to this card, other than a little bit of glitter on the cat’s nose. It’s the perfect way to place a hint of sparkle.

Faux Clay Tiles Tutorial by Teri Anderson for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and are inspired to make some faux clay tiles of your own for your projects!

Happy creating!

Grid Father’s Day Card

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.

Grid Father's Day Card By Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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!

Grid Father's Day Card By Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Grid Father's Day Card By Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

Grid Father's Day Card By Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Now make the horizontal lines with the Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/8in and repeat the same steps.

Now you have a sticky grid ready to glitter!

Grid Father's Day Card By Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Cover the Iced Silver Embossing Glitter over the grid. Press in to secure and then tap off any excess. Repeat to cover any missed areas.

Grid Father's Day Card By Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Melt the embossing powder with a heating tool. This technique is known as Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside.

Embellish the Tiles

Cover the blank titles with a thin layer of the Dual Tip Glue Pen with my finger. I used a drop to spread over the surface.

Sprinkle dark glitter embossing powder on top of the title and melt using a heating tool. Designer’s Tip: to protect my fingers from the heat, I used tweezers to hold the tile.

Adhere the Tiles

Add an Adhesive Dot Large Repositionable into each square of the grid. I love these dots because I can easily take the tile off if it’s crooked. It gives me peace of mind until I change my mind! LOL!

Grid Father's Day Card By Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Remove the liners and adhere the tiles to the card panel. Finish off the card by adhering a red velvet heart onto a tile using an Adhesive Dot Large Repositionable.

Grid Father's Day Card By Yvonne van de Grijp for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

And voila, your Grid Father’s Day Card is ready to make any dad smile!

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

Embossed Background Sea Shell Card

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 Sea Shell Card by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Embossed Background Steps

Embossed Background Sea Shell Card by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
  1. 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.
  2. Remove the top liner of the leftover sheet and cover the entire surface with the WOW! embossing powder.
  3. Shake off excess and emboss with a heat embossing tool.
  4. Next, emboss three 3D Foam Circles in the regular size using the same embossing powder.

Embellishing Details

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.

Embossed Background Sea Shell Card by Connie Mercer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

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.

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!
