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.

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.
