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!
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!! :)
Hey everyone! I’m super excited today because I have this amazing 3D Poinsettia to share with you today. This project is also for the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Design Team so the full project is on their blog with step-by-step photos and instructions.
I was inspired to make this project because of this stunning Crepe Paper Poinsettia by my friend, Amanda Coleman.
And since she’s the amazing person she is, she allowed me to use the pattern for her leaves to make my OWN leaves for my felt 3D Poinsettia. It sure made my process so much easier. Even though it still took a long time! This is one of those project you need to be fully committed to. (I burned my fingers AND lost a fingernail!!)
Of course, this is kind of a sneak peek of the project. For the full reveal you’ll want to head over to the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® BLOG and see how the 3D Poinsettia all came to be. ;)
And be sure to go to Amanda’s blog and drool over her creations, too. She is CRAZY talented.
Supplies are listed on the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Blog. Other items used are listed below:
Merry & Bright Die – Essentials by Ellen
Cozy Christmas 6 x 6 paper pad
May Arts String by the Spool, Natural Burlap
Hero Arts Mixed Accents, Earth
Also used, cheesecloth (from the grocery store :) )
I have a new card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today, appropriately called “Let’s Cuddle” since I used a super cute sentiment of that name to make it.
And did you know how hard it is to make a card when you don’t feel good? Well, let me raise my hand high in the air to tell you all about it. Wish I could have dreamed up a card and had it come to fruition instead. The sweet Die-Namics mittens and “Let’s Cuddle” stamp from My Favorite Things kind of saved the day. And, of course, along with all of my yummy adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and the pretty patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye, the card didn’t take too long. (Even with frequent breaks.)
I hope you like how it turned out:
Cute, huh? And doesn’t the patterned paper remind you of a warm, fuzzy sweater?
Even though I tend to be more of a non-traditionalist when it comes to Christmas and color I think that this is fun, especially with the grey.
This card is easy enough to make that it could be mass produced…if you wanted to. I think for me I’d still have to go with funkier colors personally, but it sure is cute. And if you know someone who needs a cuddle or if YOU do? This card is perfect. :) Don’t forget to check out the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog for more info and details.
