Thanks a Latte

I’m up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today with this Thanks a Latte card featuring some really awesome Donna Salazar products!! It’s so fun using mixed media products on cards and Donna has a great line of products with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. Twine, tissue tape, pigment powders, ribbons, a denim art journal and so much more! Check out her full line HERE.

The Thanks a Latte stamp set with the coffee cup and sentiment is part of a set : Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Oh Frappe.  Being the coffee lover I am, it’s one of my favorites. ♥ I want to use it every day. But, that would be weird.

If you have a coffee lover in your house? This stamp set and coordinating die-set is a MUST have!

Here’s my little sneak peek of today’s card, with the full tutorial on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3l® blog.

It’s late at night and just “typing” typing the word latte makes me crave coffee…I AM SO BAD!! Hahha!!

Anyway! This card has a lot of super cute elements going on. The patterned paper is from Pebbles and is really fun. I used a die-set from Pretty Pink Posh to make the scalloped circle. I just adore it so much!  The coffee cup itself was water-colored. Wait…I’m giving all my secrets away! ;)

I really do hope that you’ll enjoy this card as much as I had fun MAKING it. I can’t wait to give it to my friend with a Starbucks gift card to tell her… “Thanks a Latte”. :D Now go grab a coffee.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Wood Sheets

Hi everyone! I have a new #texturaltuesdays post in the CLASSroom today for Ellen Hutson using awesome wood sheets. These sheets are SO COOL and so versatile! The wood sheets can be die cut, embossed, and they’re all self adhesive. They come in a variety of colors and styles. The wood comes in self adhesive tapes and envelopes, as well.

What I made today is a card using the wood sheets with a shaker element using the Keepsake Envelopes by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. I also stamped and  die cut some butterflies using the coordinating stamp and die set Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps & Designer Dies, Up the Happy by Julie Ebersole.

The shaker portion is so easy with the Keepsake Envelopes! Just fill…and stick. Can’t get much easier than that. :D Those are MY kind of shaker card. I usually reinforce the top with a few staples. Nothing worse than seeing sequins flying all over the house, but maybe you’re into that?

Here’s a peek at my card:

As usual, for the full post I’d LOVE for you to go to the CLASSroom and see my tutorial to see how I made the card.  All the supplies that I used for the card are listed below.

And, in the interest of fairness, the inspiration for the design of my card came from THIS card by my dear friend Heather Pulvirenti. She is wicked talented and I am constantly in awe of her talent. Please visit her blog and look at all her amazing work. She’s FABULOUS!!! ♥

Thank you so much for stopping by today!! Enjoy your week…check out those WOOD SHEETS!! ;)

Many Thanks

Hey everyone! I have a brand new #TexturalTuesdays card featuring GAUZE and the “Many Thanks” die set on the the CLASSroom blog today for Ellen Hutson today.

This card was so much fun to make and I love using products in ways that people don’t always expect. I’m a huge fan of using gauze in my mixed media projects, but I don’t think that card makers would expect to use them for their projects. This gauze comes in a ginormous pack from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and is part of the Donna Salazar Mixed Media line for the company. I, personally, am a HUGE fan. ;)

Of course, I’m going to just share a little sneak peek of my project today, but I really really hope that you’ll check it out. It’s a great project and a quick tutorial today.

The sentiment that I used is part of the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies collection by Julie Ebersole and is called Many Thanks and it’s just so beautiful. I know I’ll be using it quite often. Dies like this are just so timeless. I don’t give out Thank You cards enough and should really start.

The entire project can be can be seen on the CLASSroom blog . All my #TexturalTuesdays posts can be seen there, every other Tuesday. :)

My Many Thanks for stopping by today and seeing what’s new. I hope you all have a great day! Below are the supplies that I used on the card in case you are interested:

Fabulous You

I have a brand new #TexturalTuesdays card that I’ve aptly named “Fabulous You” for the CLASSroom today.  Plenty of beautiful shine and subtle texture on this one today. I’ve really been enjoying using my colored pencils and may have to upgrade. Hahha!!

Here is today’s sneak peek:

LisaAdametz-FabulousYou-03222016-2

Kind of a BIG peek!

The words are from Julie Ebersole’s beautiful die set Totally Fabulous and I created the word “You” from the Basic Alpha Set, to create “Fabulous You”. I thought that would be kind of fun and just a tiny bit different.

This card has two different colors of foil and patterned papers from three different companies. Stitched dies, embossing on patterned paper, inking…and all kinds of fun stuff!! If you want to see how I made it? I do have a tutorial (a wordy one) over on the CLASSroom blog today with lots of pics. ;) And I’d love it if you checked it out.

Hoping that YOU have a fabulous day!

Be Kind

I have a brand new #TexturalTuesdays project that I named “Be Kind” from the stencil I used on the CLASSroom blog today featuring ways to find your own texture around the house. This was a really fun little canvas for me to make and I hope that you will all enjoy it, too.

Finding new ways to create texture, especially from things that you just have lying around the house, is so much fun. Even if you’re just using it as a focal piece, as I did for two of my pieces on the canvas. But the fun part is that you can see from the pieces used (go to the BLOG ) how these items could be used in so many different ways.

Here is a sneak peek of the Be Kind canvas just to whet your appetite:

I know you can’t tell much from this…it’s a TRUE sneak peek!! But, there’s actually a lot of texture right there. ;) Even just in the words “Be Kind”. I’m loving this sneaky thing. Hahha!!

In the supplies list you’ll be able to see what PRODUCTS I used but not the free stuff, so that won’t give it all away. I really do hope that you’ll check out the full post. It’s not too lengthy and I hope that you’ll find it useful. I know that if you’re a card-maker that enjoys making CAS cards that you may not be super interested in texture, but maybe you would want to use something you learn from the post for art journaling? And it’s really fun and not super messy…not too bad. :)

I hope that you all remember to Be Kind to yourselves first and foremost. It seems that we are all so busy trying to be nice to others we forget about ourselves. Be Kind to YOU. ♥
