Here's how I was inspired:




Scrapbook.com's permanent Adhesive Roller is a staple for any crafter!  Let's start at the bottom and work our way up.  I use the Neenah Solar White A2 card base.  I stamped the Right at Home Watercolor Background in Hero Arts Tide Pool onto an A2 Neenah Cardstock panel.  I adhered the background to the cardbase.



I used the Hero Arts Infinity Nesting Rectangle to make a frame and adhered an acetate sheet to it.  I then backed the sheet with foam and set the frame aside.  I stamped the sentiment from the Right at Home Script Greetings in Lawn Fawn Jet Black.  I scattered a bunch of Hero Arts Ombre Sunshine sequins.



Going back to my frame panel.  I used the adhesive on the Right at Home Cozy Cardinal and her branch that she is perching on.  Notice that those are on top of the frame rather than inside the shaker.  I prefer it that way so the sequins have fun shaker movement.  I carefully set my frame on top of the sequins and made sure that it was fully adhered to the base panel.

Adhesive is a crafter's best friend and you will receive the Scrapbook.com's permanent Adhesive Roller with any purchase you make today!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and a big shout out to Scrapbook.com for a fun week of activities!

Scrapbook.com's Dauber 3-Pack are an awesome to have in your crafting tool kit.  I decided to use them to design polkas on my card design because, well, polkas make me happy.

I teamed them up with the America Crafts | Vicki Boutin All Good Things Collection Stamps.



It's been surprising to me how much purple I've used in the last couple of days.  One of my favorite combos is purple + yellow.



I hope you have a fabulous Sunday!

Hero Arts Creative Team Blog Hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®





Hello and so happy that you're joining us for the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® + Hero Arts Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the Hero Arts blog!  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning which is the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.

Prize info:  There will be two prize packs, drawn from the entries collected on Rafflecopter.  One prize pack from Hero Arts, one from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.  

Let me start by saying that I've been a long time fan of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.  It is my personal adhesive of choice and I use their products every time I craft!

Check out how I was inspired:


Let's start at the bottom and work our way up!  I used a panel from the Pool Mix Layering Papers with the DI523 Wave & Sea Confetti Die.  I used the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser to adhered the die cut panel to my card base.  This is a clear adhesive and perfect for this part of my project.


I stamped a bunch of images form the CM276 Seas The Day Seagulls set.  I colored them with alcohol markers and then used the coordinating DI526 Seas the Day Seagulls Frame Cuts.

I'm a HUGE fan of all of the Hero Arts Infinity Dies.  Why?  You literally grab one set and you have all the different sizes to accomplish what you want.  That frame was made with a panel from the Earth Mix Layering Papers.  I used two of the Nesting Rectangle Infinity Dies.  They've been adhered to the base with 3D Foam Squares White Small Size.


I finished up my card with placing the different colored images onto my card using the same adhesive, 3D Foam Squares White Small Size.


Now, for some fun giveaways!! Scrapbook Adhesives and Hero Arts have each created prize packs worth $35. To enter, leave a comment on each stop on the hop saying what you liked about that particular project, then enter the Rafflecopter by clicking the big red button below:

Isn't it so much fun?!!!!  Here's how I was inspired:


I started off with the gorgeous Pointelle Cover Up Die.  Isn't it WOW?!  

The fun Super Coffee has been stamped and colored with alcohol markers.  I knew that she had to have a pink cape!


This little stamp & die set packs a punch.  So many fun sentiments.  I might be showing my age with this choice.
