Foiled Christmas Tree Card

Hello friends!

Today I'm sharing a Foiled Christmas Tree card.  I rarely get my Christmas cards done this early but I do start and have good intentions!  

This Christmas tree shines with metallic foils applied over adhesive applied with E-Z Runners from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  It makes for a unique tree! 

I posted all the directions with step out photos on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog - click HERE

Birthday Card for a Guy


I'm back with another card.  This Birthday Card for a Guy features papers from Photo Play "For the Love of Winter" Collection pack.  I'm not wanting to think of winter right now but I sure like the blue color papers in this collection and they seemed appropriate for a guy card.  

I posted many step out photos and all the directions to make this card on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog.  Click HERE to see post.

Faux Postage Fall Card

 Hi, friends!  Fall is certainly in the air as I write this! The colors of tree leaves are intense golds and some reds.  I really like those colors and used them as inspiration for color of this fall card.  It's a pretty easy to make card!  The design could so easily be used for lots of occasions.  Simply stamp holiday images for Christmas or make it for a birthday with balloon or cake images. Just use your imagination and create!

I posted all the details about how I made it on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog HERE.

I used a stamp set from Tim Holtz called The Scarecrow.  So appropriate for fall.  Where I live there are corn fields all around and an occasional scarecrow!

Halloween Treat Bag

 Hello crafty friends! 

As I write this, it is the end of September.  As October looms around the corner, Halloween will soon be here.  I tend to be a last-minute person most of the time but today I'm way ahead by sharing a Halloween Treat Bag.  Of course, it's always good to make ahead to be ready for treats!

The basic treat bag is quite easy to make with #8 white tags and some scraps of white cardstock.  It can easily be made with cardstock cut to same size as #8 tags which is 3.125 x 6.25 inches.  

This Halloween Treat Bag is posted on Scrapbook Adhesives Blog today. There many step-out photos with directions to make this treat bag HERE.

I stamped and used Distress Spray Stains on the front tag but it could easily be decorated with decorative papers, die cuts or a different stamped design.  It's so easy to make and assemble with Crafty Power Tape!

This is one of the process photos.  For more details go to Scrapbook Adhesives Blog HERE.

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you stop again!

Specimen Fall Leaves Card

Hello crafty friends! 

Although I don't look forward to what follows Fall, I sure enjoy the colors at this time of year!  That's my inspiration for making this card.  It's on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today.

It features a small die cut envelope and folder cut with dies by Tim Holtz from Sizzix - Specimen and Collector and leaves I stamped with Tim Holtz set Nature's Wonder.  I also used stamps from Tim Holtz Field Notes, Tiny Toadstools and The Scarecrow.  Leaves are from Nature's Wonder, stamping on envelope insert and on folder are from Field Notes, stamping on small envelope are from Tiny Toadstools and the verse is from The Scarecrow. 

Does the red cardstock look stitched?  I hope so but it's not!  I poked holes along edges with a needle tool and Tim Holtz ruler which has holes along one edge.  Then I used a Uni-Ball Signo Micro black pen to draw the lines over the holes. 

You'll find details on how to make the card on Scrapbook Adhesives Blog - HERE

Thankful Card with Foil Leaves

 Hello everyone! I'm back with another Scrapbook Adhesives project.  It's hard to believe that it's the end of August!  It will soon be fall with all it's glorious colors!  That's my inspiration for this card.

 You can find all the step out photos and directions on Scrapbook Adhesives blog - HERE.

Here's a peek of how I used foil for the letter squares which are Thin 3D Foam Squares with die cut letters on them 

and foil on 3D Foam Leaves. 

I like to use a heat gun to heat the leaves after applying the foil.  It adds a slight texture and mellows the color a tiny bit.

Thanks for stopping!
Happy Creating!

Mixed Media Background Card

Hello everyone! 

Here is a mixed media background card that can easily be used for many occasions.  Simply keep some greetings on hand to add as needed.  

The background is fun to make with E-Z Dots® Repositionable Refillable Dispenser and Distress Oxide sprays and Distress ink.  Once the paper is dry, simply rub off the repositionable adhesive.  Add more color as desired.

In the photo the adhesive has been removed and reveals the paper color underneath.  I added Uncharted Mariner ink over and misted with water for the final background.
