Dimensional Adhesive Embellishments

Dimensional adhesives come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but my favorites are 3D Foam Squares from Club Scrap by Scrapbook Adhesives. Can you spot them on my project? Be sure to visit me over at the Club Scrap blog for details on how I created this mini album.

Dimensional Adhesive Embellishments #clubscrap #dimension #embellishments

Transform these foam squares into unique embellishments with embossing powder!

Remove the backing from three foam squares and stick to a clean embossing powder tray.

Remove the backing from the top of the squares.

Sprinkle the exposed adhesive with Silver Dollar embossing powder.

Carefully remove them from the tray with tweezers and attach to a craft mat.

Heat set the powder to melt it. Caution: Heat can melt the foam.

Add the squares to the front of a mini album, card, or scrapbook page.

Lavender Fields Card - Club Scrap Linky Party

I created this card with several brands of ink pads, including Club Scrap's hybrid and Ranger Distress Oxide inks.

Lavender Fields Distress Oxide Card #clubscrap #lavender #distressoxides #cards

Lavender Fields Card Tutorial - 

Apply Distress Oxide Faded Jeans and Wilted Violet inks to a plain white watercolor paper panel with a soft bristle brush (old makeup brushes work great).

Adhere the lavender blossom stamps to an acrylic block and add Amethyst, Sapphire,
and Leaf hybrid inks to the blossoms and stems.

Stamp the grouping randomly along the bottom of the watercolor paper panel.

Attach the lavender bundle stamp to the block, ink with similar hybrid inks. Stamp over the single stems to fill in any open areas.

Dip the end of the makeup brush into water and flick onto the finished panel.

Dab the water droplets lightly with a paper towel removing some of the Distress Oxide ink colors. I absolutely love the speckled background look!

Stamp a sentiment from Club Scrap's Daffodils collection in Amethyst hybrid ink. Wrap the panel with a Lavender Fields Card Ribbon and layer it onto a Woven Strands Green mat. Adhere the layers onto a Lavender Fields Stone folded card base.

April 2018 Past Present Challenge with SC691 - Club Scrap

#clubscrap #cards #birthday #blueprints #distressoxides #rainbow #embossresist #sc691

For the April 2018 Challenge, we are working with any items from these vintage Club Scrap kits: Moody Blues, Rhapsody, and Blueprints.

I chose to work with stamps and papers from the Blueprints collection to create a card. The sketch is based on the SplitcoastStampers Card Sketch 691.

I was inspired by a card created by my friend the super talented Jenn Shurkus. Be sure to see her card on her blog post HERE. Isn't it gorgeous!?

Here is how I created my card.

Add Versamark ink to the Blueprints graph image. Stamp onto watercolor paper and sprinkle with white embossing powder. Heat set the image to melt the powder.

Swipe a small amount of Distress Oxide inks to a craft mat. Pick up each color with a water brush and add to the tiny squares in a rainbow order.

Allow the panel to dry and then layer with papers onto the card base following the sketch design.

#clubscrap #cards #birthday #blueprints #distressoxides #rainbow #embossresist #sc691

Embellish with Silver Dazzles from Club Scrap's Constellations collection.

I made a few extra panels with the leftover inks. The Delft crackle texture stamp and a speckled background.

Oxide Lift Technique featuring Club Scrap's Daffodils collection.

I pulled out my Distress Oxides and got to work on my version of this fabulous technique!

#clubscrap #ginak #distressoxides #oxidelift #daffodils

So here's the scoop:

Gina K. from Stamp TV was recently featured on the Simon Says Stamp Blog. She used her own twist on the Oxide Lift technique and her card is fabulous. I honestly couldn't wait to try it, the results are just stunning! She did her blending with a paper stump, Gamsol, and Prismacolor pencils.

#clubscrap #ginak #distressoxides #oxidelift #daffodils

I chose to try the same basic technique but then did my blending with watercolor pencils and my water brush instead. The effect is not nearly as smooth as Gina's but I liked it just the same. My finished card features the Club Scrap Daffodils Stamp, Gold card base, and sentiment. I nested it on die-cut Take Wing Green paper scalloped circle (Spellbinders) and white circle shapes (Darice).

So here are the cards I created with just a few of these precious pieces.
