Hi everyone! I’m back on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog with this Pink Christmas card today. I’ve been having a lot of fun using non-traditional colors for my holiday cards. Are you the type that like to use traditional colors or that likes to break out of the mold?
The wreath is from Taylored Expressions 3 x 4″ Christmas Watercolor Panels (and right now they’re even on sale). I’m addicted to these panels. They’re awesome for beautiful watercolor projects and quick additions to a card.
I wanted to make this a Pink Christmas card because, really, it’s so unlike me. I am more apt to make a deep, dark card. Just being honest here. I don’t plan. I pick colors and patterns as I go. I’m sure that makes people nervous. But, it’s how I do things. It keeps the process more intuitive or organic for me.
I have noticed that I’ve been using pink a lot this year. I’m not sure what that means. Maybe I just need to hide the pink card stock and move on to a new color? ;)
The subtle glittery stripes are created by using the Home & Hobby Premium Double Sided 1″ Permanent Tape with clear glitter burnished on top. This effect is beautiful. And all of the lovely sequins are adhered with the Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini.
More of the process for making this card is on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog post for today with additional photos and supply information, so I hope that you’ll check it out.
Enjoy your day!
Hey there! It’s another busy day today. I have a Fall Thank You card that I made for the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. This card features many of the exclusive products that we carry in our line by Donna Salazar. Donna has a love for mixed media and what she loves to call “Girlie Grunge”. I happen to love it, too.
Here is my card:
I love the rustic, autumn feel of this card. Even though it’s still so very hot here in Nevada. I love that I can look at this card and be reminded that It WILL get cooler — eventually.
The products by Donna Salazar that I’m using for this Fall Thank You card are as followed: Pigment Powder in Brown, Gold, and Wine; Girlie Grunge Twine, Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape in Ash, and Donna’s Lace Ribbons. I’m also using the 3D Foam Leaves. (All Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L® products can be found HERE.)
The beautiful plaid patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn and is part of her Perfectly Plaid Fall Petite Paper Pack.
I hope that you’ll check out the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today to read how I made my Fall Thank You card. It’s super easy to replicate. :)
Hope that you all have a wonderful day today!
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.

Hi everyone! I made a funny card!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!! ;) It’s actually for my post today on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog. And it also happens to be for my dad’s birthday. Shhhhhh….don’t tell him it’s here. It’ll be our little secret until the 22nd, okay?
The card was so much fun to make. I love utilizing a lot of color in my card-making. The background is created by blending Distress Inks over a piece of water-color cardstock. I like the texture this type of paper gives the background. Smoother paper would not make it look this way, but I’m a texture freak. This is no surprise.
The use of many sizes and thicknesses of 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® are what really bring this funny card to life. Okay, maybe the super cute sentiment, too. ;)
I hope that you’ll check out the blog post on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today to learn a bit more on how I made this funny card for my daddy-o.
The stamp set that I used is called Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Stay Salty by Julie Ebersole and the matching die set is Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Stay Salty by Julie Ebersole they’re so FUN!!
I’ll see you back here on Tuesday for something super exciting!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for spending part of it with me. ♥
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!! :)
