Love Tag

Busy week! I’m back again with another project to share. :) Today’s is for the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Design Team. It’s a Love Tag.

Sometimes I don’t feel like making a card or a canvas and I love the vertical space of a tag. Especially the #10 tags (8 ½” L x 4 ⅛” W). I make my own using chipboard so they can hold up to all my schtuff (haha!), but you can always buy them, too.

For my tag today I wanted to make something really special, but NOT especially difficult. I like to use unconventional colors and find different ways of using things. Try to think outside the box…or frame in the case of this Love Tag. ;)

As usual…just a peek. But I promise it will be worth it. ;)LisaAdametz-LoveTag-Blog-1So many cool things on this Love Tag! Texture, shimmer, color. This is a tag that begs to be touched…to BE loved! Are you getting the idea here?

Please check out the step-by-step on how I made it, with some additional photos on the BLOG.

And, as always, if you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d love to hear from you.

Watercolor Card

Hi again! I have a brand new post over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. This one is special to me because it’s a watercolor card.

Now, that may not seem like a big deal to any of you, but I was trying to recreate an Aurora Borealis in watercolor and then use my adhesives as embellishments. I had a LOT of fun working on the Aurora. Looking at different photos and trying to get the colors blending and working just so. Then I wanted to use some of the many products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® as embellishments, not just as adhesives. So, that was fun, too.

Using watercolors to create an actual scene was kind of new to me. I usually use them in a more abstract way, or to color in a stamp. I hope you all like what I did with this:

I’d love for you to see the close-ups and alternate views of this watercolor card over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog. Please, go check it out and let me know what you think! Your comments always make my day. ♥

We’re expecting a MASSIVE storm here today, so I may be offline. But I appreciate each and every one of you.

Happy Veterans Day

Hello my friends! Wishing all of you a very Happy Veterans Day! I’m over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today sharing a card that I made for this Veterans Day.

I decided to make a card based on poppies and the poem “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae. I love poppies so much (since they’re so prolific here in California), but just knowing that they have such a historical significance makes them so much more special. I used one of my very favorite Penny Black stamps Blooming Garden (30-155) and gave it a little more dimension.

Here’s a special peek of my Veterans Day card:

If I could give this card to each one of the people that served before me, with me, and after me…I would. God bless each and every one of you for your service and sacrifice to this great country and to all of our allies as well.

Please stop by the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog to read more about this card, how I made it, what supplies were used, etc.

Wishing ALL of my fellow veterans a very Happy Veterans Day.

Penny Black Guest Designer – Last Day

Today is my last day as Guest Designer on the Penny Black blog. I hope that you’ve enjoyed the different creations I’ve had the pleasure of creating for Penny Black. It’s been a fun week. I tried to make each day VERY different and to make the most of their beautiful stamps, dies, and stencils.
