Wow! Busy day! I’m also on The CLASSroom Blog today with a #TexturalTuesdays post and a cool Fuse-able Thank You card that I made using the We-R-Memory Keepers Fuse Tool!
My Fuse-Able Thank You card was really fun, but took me forever to make. This tool gets extremely hot. Like a glue gun where you scream and your fingers are instantly welded together. (Ask me how I know.) Or maybe it’s just me that screams like a small child with hot tools? (Please tell me I’m not the only one.)
Anyway, I would suggest watching a plethora of videos before even thinking of starting with the We-R-Memory Keeper Fuse Tool. If my card looks vaguely familiar? It’s because I CASE’d Julie Ebersole’s amazing card from YouTube HERE <— (click). Not gonna lie. Her brilliance blew my mind and I loved the way she used the patterned paper and went from there. That Julie is one creative chica!
Without scorching my fingers off I even made a teensy pocket for a few glittery hearts. A hole was punched and baker’s twine was threaded through to attach the small pocket to the larger one.
I can see a lot of variations of the above card, especially for Christmas. How fun would that be? Even making a small version for a little something special for each card. I LOVE that idea!! I might have to start now as I’m a renowned procraftinator. ;)

Yay!! The Design Team of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® is taking part in a Blog Hop with Lawn Fawn this week! And today is day TWO! Make sure to visit the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog AND the Lawn Fawn Blog each day for a chance to win prizes and to be inspired by the designers for each team. (Even me.)
The card I made above, for the Blog Hop with Lawn Fawn, uses beautiful patterned paper from the Perfectly Plaid Petite Paper Pack. And also the sweet Let’s Polka In the Meadow Collection Pack. It’s still super hot here in Nevada, so the beautiful colors in these collections reminds me of a desert sunset OR sunrise.
I, personally, love Big Hugs! How about you? :)
Use the Big Scripty Words Lawn Cuts and die-cut the word “Big Hugs”. Adhere the die-cut using the Adhesive Sheets 4×6″. Stamp the birds from the Big Scripty Words stamp set, color with watercolors, then die cut using the matching dies. Add dimension to the birds with 3D Foam Squares – White Mix.
Attach the sequins using the Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini. They stay in place perfectly with no glue or tackiness showing through. The E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser is my very favorite adhesive to use for flat surfaces and that’s what I used to adhere the white cardstock to the card base, and the plaid paper to the white cardstock.
Please don’t forget there’s a giveaway with our Blog Hop with Lawn Fawn so be sure to comment every day for your chance to win. And check out the Lawn Fawn blog for TONS more inspiration.
I have some of the supplies used in the project above, linked below. Some affiliate links are used.

Happy Saturday! I have this pretty Hello Sunshine card up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. It features one of my favorite products: pigment powders. They are so versatile and can add shimmer and shine in a variety of ways.
Here is a peek at the Hello Sunshine card that I made for the blog today:
Use Distress Inks (or a similar water reactive dye ink) to create the base colors for the center sun ray by sponging on with a mini-ink blending tool and using water to “bleach” certain areas of color off.
Mix water with the pigment powder to create a very wet, shimmery mixture. Dip a paintbrush into the mixture and tap over the surface to create a splatter. When lightly dabbed off, this can create a bleached effect. Heat dry or allow to heat set. Do this for each pigment powder.
A focal piece such as this Sun Ray (Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Silver Linings by Julie Ebersole) is very easy to create, can be done using so many different colors, and with many different dies as well. And cheering someone up with a “Hello Sunshine” card could be just what they need when they need it most.
More information about this Hello Sunshine card may be found on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog . Thanks!! :)
Hi everyone! And welcome to to my stop on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® & Altenew Blog Hop!! You should have arrived here from the Altenew Blog where I’m sure they have LOTS of beautiful things to share with you. This is a jam-packed hop today with tons of designers and *prizes*, too, so make sure to comment and leave your information in the Rafflecopter below.
For my card I’m using the Altenew set Lacy Scrolls and what I did was create a watercolor-type background with them using dye-based inks. I then stamped a separate flower, fussy cut it and popped it up using Thin 3D Foam Squares, Mix – White. To create additional interest for the background I created a bit of “splatter” paint simply by mixing Donna Salazar’s with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Pigment Powder in Pink and Gold with a little bit of water, dipping a thin paintbrush into the mixture, and flicking it onto the background.
I used a die to create the panel (super easy and NO measuring!) and also a die for my word “peace” which I cut FOUR times! I used the 4″ x 6″ Adhesive Sheets on the back of a piece of light gold card stock so after I ran the pieces through my die-cutting machine it was super easy to adhere them all together. No messy strings…just stick them together! Perfect!
I used my always trusty E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser to adhere the patterned paper to the card base. And 3D Foam Squares, White – Regular to adhere the panel to the patterned paper card front.
Simple ribbon, twine, pearls, and enamel dots finish it off for an elegant card to give to anyway in need of a pick-me-up.
Here are some close-ups:
