Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® + CardMaker® Magazine Blog Hop

Welcome to Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® + CardMaker® Magazine Blog Hop and Giveaway! Today’s theme is “Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside”, which means using various Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products with different mediums to customize your projects. I’m using 3D Foam Shapes today, and I thought I would share a great collage technique to take them from simply adhesive, to fabulous embellishments.

I receive products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® as a design team member for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use.

Step 1: Adhere the large 3D Foam Heart to your chosen patterned paper. Then took a sheet of the gold foil from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit and cut off a small piece. Crumple the foil slightly, and then “dab” it onto the adhesive heart.

Step 2: I took decorative tissue paper and again torn out a small piece and crumpled it. Then I found tearing it into tiny bits worked best. Fill in the spaces between the gold areas. Once I had most spaces filled, I went back with the gold foil and filled in any small spaces that I had missed.


Step 3: I cut my card layers using patterned paper and cardstock. I cut a border strip to go the length of the card from patterned paper and adhered lace to the back of it using Extreme Double Sided Tape. I adhered all of my layers together using the E-Z Runner Permanent Fine adhesive and the Extreme Double Sided Tape again for the border strip.


Step 4: I added Gold Creative Photo Corners to the corners of my patterned paper and then adhered this to the card base using 3D Foam Squares.


Step 5: I chose one of the 3D Foam Frames and snipped it in half and spread it apart in the middle of my card. Then using the same technique in Step 1 and Step 2 I added gold and tissue to the frame.


Step 6: I matted my square with the heart on it in white cardstock. I picked out a sticker sentiment and also matted that in white cardstock. I adhered bot to the card using 3D Foam Squares. I then added a small die cut and some gems.

  1. This is a lovely way to showcase that the sky’s the limit when it comes to using 3L products. Before I read your instructions, I couldn’t imagine how the gorgeous heart was created. No two would ever turn out exactly alike and that’s a plus in my book. A beautiful card that would definitely find its way into anyone’s keepsake box!


  2. Lovin’ the vintage vibe I’m getting from your Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside on the frame and heart shapes. Lightbulb moments: a little distressing on the foil and tissue paper? Using tissue paper pieces, really?! LOVE!! LOL!


  3. Wow! Stunning card!!! All the details are amazing!!!
    I’ve never thought of applying foil to foam adhesives! I’ll definitely try to decorate my cards or my scrapbook projects!
