Birthday Girl With No Line Coloring

Good morning! Michele here with another card using the no line coloring technique.  I love that the image looks more like an illustration rather than a stamped image!

Creating the Birthday Girl Card.

First, I stamped my image with a pale grey ink and colored it with Copic markers. To give her hair and dress a bit of shine and glitter, I used a clear Wink of Stella pen.  Next, I adhered the image to a pink tag and blue background with Crafty Foam Tape to give it dimension.

Because this cute tag needed a little something more, I dressed it up a bit by tying a ribbon through the top opening. Then I secured the flower and sprigs with Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium.  To embellish her dress and hair, I added a couple of teeny flowers using Adhesive Dots Micro. Finally, add the embellished tag on top of a layered tall card base.

I hope you try this technique on your next card! Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Supplies:
Adhesive Dots Micro
Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium
Crafty Foam Tape White
Others: Copic markers, Prima stamp, ribbon, flower punch, Queen and Company-Mini flowers, Wink of Stella

Create Colorful Backgrounds Using Adhesive Sheets

Creating colorful backgrounds are so much fun with our Adhesive Sheets and goes well beyond using them just as a traditional adhesive. We call this Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside.

Christine joining you with a scrapbook layout tutorial that can easily be applied to any paper crafting medium. Today I am going to show you how to create colorful backgrounds using Adhesive Sheets and that it is quick and easy!

Create Colorful Backgrounds Using Adhesive Sheets by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This colorful layout combines a bunch of adhesives including Crafty Foam Tape, the E-Z Runner® Grand, and the Adhesive Sheets. By combining the Adhesive Sheets with Embossing Powder I was able to create a very different background.  It started off looking like a big mess. But as you will see in the video, it all came together!

Create Colorful Backgrounds Using Adhesive Sheets Process Video:

Here’s my process video walking you through how to create a colorful background to, therefore, make one to enhance your projects.

Adhesive Sheets are available in a variety of sizes. They are great for using with punches and electronic cutting systems because they won’t gum up your tools. I went a whole different route today, didn’t I??? By tearing and being random I was able to create splotches throughout the layout mimicking the look of paint splatters.  Additionally creating texture on the layout was a definite bonus. Meanwhile, as I was creating I truly didn’t know if it was going to work out. Eventually, it all came together in the end to be a vibrant layout packed with techniques!

Using the bright yellow embossing powder certainly made the background stand out more.  Imagine the possibilities of creating a colorful background using several embossing powders! Consequently, I’m looking forward to playing more with this adhesive and making it work for me! Be sure to tag us if you create colorful backgrounds using Adhesive Sheets so that we can see too!!

Thanks for coming by today!

Memory Keeping with Traveller’s Notebook and Keepsake Envelopes

Hi there, it’s Stephanie today. Because I have so many photos and memories of our summer, I started a Traveller’s Notebook called “Favorite Moments” about a month ago. So now it’s time to fill it up!

Traveller's Notebook by Stephanie Schutze

Starting the Notebook

We had a wonderful time at the Baltic Sea and my girls and I collected stones, sea glass and shells. Therefore, Keepsake Envelopes are perfect to store these treasures.

After scrapping the pages with photos, sticker and notes, I filled up the little Keepsake Envelope with our treasures. With a self-adhesive back, they are quick and easy to add.

The Keepsake Envelopes Mix comes with 10 envelopes in a variety of different sizes. So they’re perfect for all the important things that need protection.

Thank you for visiting me today!
Stephanie 🙂

Dresden Quilt Birthday Wishes Card with Adhesive Sheets

Happy World Card Making Day!

Hi it’s Judy and I’m happy to be sharing a handmade Dresden Quilt Birthday Wishes card for World Card Making Day! Find our giveaway details at the bottom of this post!

Dresden Quilt Birthday Card Instructions

Where I live, fall brings a chill to the air that makes me think of warm quilts.  I put together this Dresden Quilt Birthday Wishes card using Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6ʺ to fasten all the little pieces, Thin 3D Foam Squares to add a little dimension, and Dodz Adhesive Dots Small to hold the button in place. The paper layers are fastened with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.

Dresden Quilt Birthday Wishes Card tutorial by Judy Hayes

First use the Dresden Quilt die to cut 3 different patterned papers and 1 of cream cardstock from which only the outline piece is used. Next apply Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6ʺ: remove the yellow liner, apply the adhesive to a piece of cream cardstock that is slightly bigger than the die, remove the top liner.

Then place the quilt outline die cut onto the exposed adhesive. Cover it with the release paper and press it firmly in place.

Position the quilt pieces onto the adhesive to form the quilt pattern! Press them firmly in place.

Trim off the excess cardstock around edge of the quilt.

Use E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser to layer it onto pattern and solid mats.

Add Thin 3D Foam Squares Mix White to adhere it to card front.

Stamp a verse on cream cardstock. Fasten to patterned and orange paper mats with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser. Use Thin 3D Foam Squares Mix White and position it onto card front. Thread pearl cotton through a button and tie a bow. Attach the button to card with Dodz Adhesive Dots Small.

Now you can use leftover die cut pieces to make two more cards!

Enjoy this World Card Making Day!

Halloween Decor: DIY Monster Frames

Hello! It’s Dana here with a fun budget-friendly Halloween décor project. One of my favorite holidays is Halloween. I thought it would be fun to dress up my mantel this year. I found a pair of inexpensive framed pieces of art at the thrift store that was perfect for this project. With a little bit of paint and some festive embellishments, I was able to create a fun set of monster frames.

Upcycled Painted Frames for Halloween by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

This set of coordinating prints was a great find! I liked the size (10×12 inches) and the frames were in great shape.

Directions:

First, remove the images from the frames and set aside. Next, clean the frames and prime with a coat of gesso. Then, apply bright colors of acrylic paint to the frames and set aside to dry. Designer Tip: Add interest to a frame by applying more than one color of paint.

Painted Halloween Frame Embellishments and Adhesives by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Embellish the frames!

  1. Use Adhesive Lines to adhere plastic bones, in a zig-zag pattern, to the purple areas of the first frame.
  2. Apply Dodz Adhesive Dots 3D in a zig-zag fashion along the bottom of the first frame. Press Hot Lime Fragments onto the Dodz.
  3. Stick 3D Foam Stars along the top of the first frame in a straight line. Sprinkle on yellow glittered flock, press down to adhere the flock to the stars, and then gently shake the frame to remove the excess.
  4. Line the inner edge of the second frame with Extreme Double-Sided Tape. Remove the top liner and press the ribbon onto the adhesive.

Thrift Store Painting Cover Up by Dana Tatar for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Replace the original art. Note: I used Halloween wall clings for my frames. I applied the clings directly over the original art. Comic books, movie posters, or photos of loved ones dressed up for Halloween would also work here!

Upcycled Halloween Monster Frames Finishing Embellishments and Scrapbook Adhesvies by 3L Foam by Dana Tatar

Insert the new artwork into the frames and add finishing embellishments.

The range of 3D Foam is a great way to add an additional dimension to projects. The strong permanent adhesive makes a lasting bond, and the high-density foam keeps it’s dimension.

I used two small  3D Foam Squares to attach a glittery spider to the corner of the first picture. I lined the top half of the second frame with Crafty Foam Tape and slipped a monster hat over the frame.

Creating a Mixed Media Canvas

I’m sharing a mixed media canvas with you today. Hello, everyone, Marilyn here and I’d like to show you how I created this canvas with adhesives from wet, Dual Tip Glue Pen, to dry, Premium Double-Sided Tape, that are available at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.

Creating Mixed Media Canvas by Marilyn Rivera for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Creating my Mixed Media Canvas

Start with paper doilies that I adhered onto the canvas with the Dual Tip Glue Pen. This creates instant textures on the background.

Once the doilies were dry I adhered patterned paper to the canvas using Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4″.

Tip: to avoid air bubbles, I started from the top to the bottom. For more texture, I stenciled with modeling paste.

Adding Details to my Canvas

To pop up the “my love” chipboard, I used Crafty Foam Tape in White.  Then I added some flowers and buttons that I secured with Dodz Adhesives Dots Medium.

With the Dual Tip Glue Pen, I gave the canvas more textures adhering 3D powder randomly. Then I painted with a light blue acrylic paint.

For the final touch, I adhered some gems with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

I hope you find some inspiration. Thanks for stopping by, until next time!

Festive and Speedy Card Making Ideas

Christine here today to start batch making some festive Christmas cards. By choosing a simple design, I can really build up speed with my trusty supplies at hand: Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4″, Crafty Foam Tape White and MyStik® Permanent Strips.

 

Festive Parcel Card tutorial by Christine Emberson

Creating my Festive Christmas Card.

Affix my card mats to my card front using MyStik® Permanent Strips.

Next, die-cut three rectangles out of festive scrap paper to create gift boxes. Then run a strip of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4″ Permanent down the front to affix ribbon in place.

On the back of my ‘gift tower,’ I attached Crafty Foam Tape and affixed it to my card front because I wanted interest and dimension.

Attach gold die cuts to each gift and add a mini poinsettia for a finishing touch.

Coffee Shaker Card featuring Keepsake Envelopes

Who loves shaker cards?!? Who thinks they are kind of a challenge to make?!? I rarely even attempted them before I discovered a key ingredient to make the process easier: Keepsake Envelopes! Now I find myself regularly pulling out products to put together a Shaker Card, most notably accompanied by the Keepsake Envelopes. Christine joining you today and I am going to walk you thru how to make a Coffee Shaker Card featuring Keepsake Envelopes.

Coffee Shaker Card featuring Keepsake Envelopes by Christine Meyer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

There are two main adhesive ingredients used for my card: the Keepsake Envelopes and the Crafty Foam Tape.  The E-Z Runner® Grand also plays a small role. Additionally, I used a Lawn Fawn die (which you saw me use earlier in the week in this blog post) to create the shaker part of my card.

To begin I added the patterned paper to my card base using the E-Z Runner Grand. Next, I ran the card through my die cut machine to cut out the shaker area. After filling the Keepsake Envelope with sequins, I added some patterned paper behind it.  The Keepsake Envelopes have adhesive on the back as a result, it is easy to attach them to anything!

Following that, I used Crafty Foam Tape to attach the whole envelope to my card – making sure to add the Crafty Foam Tape to both the outer edge of the envelope and around the opening for the shaker part of the card.  Using Crafty Foam Tape allows the stuff inside the shaker to move around more, therefore 30 upping the fun level of the entire card! Finally, after I created this I realized it would have been fun to add some actual coffee into the shaker part…oh well, next time!

Walking through the process with a video tutorial.

Thanks for joining me today – hope your weekend is filled with lots of coffee!

Michele Kovack’s On The Mend Trio Card

Hello, crafty friends! Super excited to be hopping with Lawn Fawn today! I absolutely love this little get well set called, On the Mend. It was so cute, I made THREE cards using it!

The first card I did a bit of masking to get my soup bowl to look like it was in front of the Kleenex box. The images were colored using Copic markers. I kept the card fairly simple so I tucked a scalloped paper underneath the image and attached it to the black card using Crafty Foam Tape. For a final touch, I adhered several sequins to the card using Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini.

Lawn Fawn Blog Hop and Giveaway - Day 5 Speedy Recovery Card by Michele Kovack

My next card is super simple and super fast! It’s a one layer card using the cute little vase and ladybug designs. First, stamp and mask both of them off so that a polka dot background can be added. Remove the masks and color them with Copics markers. Add sequins using the Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini.

Last but not least, a rainbow Band-Aid card! Because who doesn’t love rainbows and Band-Aids? (I work with 9-year-olds and Band-Aids make EVERYTHING better! LOL!)  Stamp the image repeatedly to fill the paper and color with Copic markers. Adhere the card to the black cardstock using Crafty Foam Tape. Stamp the sentiment and pop it up using the Crafty Foam Tape. Once again, adhere the sequins using Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini. Find Michele’s Blog at Thoughts of a Cardmaking Scrapbooker.
