crafting with Glue Arts

This week the Scor-Pal Team is crafting with Glue Arts products and today I’m sharing my project with you.  Yes, I know we are way past spring and blooming trees, but I couldn’t help but use some of these fun Jillibean Soup papers again! 

I used the Glue Arts U Cut It 3D adhesive foam to diecut the top of the tree and the cloud.  I literally said “Wow!” when the foam popped right out!  It is so cool how easily the dies cut so cleanly through the foam…fun!

The foam has adhesive on both sides so it’s super easy to cover one side with glitter, etc.  I decided to use some of my long-neglected Flower Soft on the diecuts.  I used Spring on the treetop and Polar White to make a fluffy white cloud.  I also used one of the Raisen’s adhesive squares to attach the sentiment so it pops slightly off the cardfront.

Below you can see how I used my Scor-Pal to create 1″ grid lines on the white layer.  These made it super easy to place the patterned papers (7/8″ squares) just where I wanted them.  It also gives the card a little more texture.

You know I love my Scor-Pal and the Glue Arts products get 2 thumbs up.  U Cut It foam = fun stuff!

Of all the stamps that My Favorite Things has, the Pure Innocence line is one of my favorites.  I only own two or three MFT stamps and a few dies but I really like the quality and hopefully will acquire a few more. 

I’m sure this image has to be one of their top sellers…it’s just too darn cute!

And here’s the inside… so simple but it’s a nice surprise to open a card and see the inside decorated to match the front.

Have a great day!

…are finally in da house!  I only purchased 2 of these cute girls for now but I’m sure there will be more.  😉

Last week I received these in the mail from Jacksonbelle Embellishments (thanks for the quick shipping, Lindsey!) and I’ve just now had a chance to share the first card I’ve made. 

I used some Basic Grey Origins papers here.  At first I wasn’t sure if they’d be too dark for this sweet image but I think it turned out just fine.  I also stamped her onto the envelope and colored lightly with Copics.  (be sure to place some scrap paper inside the envy while coloring to avoid the ink from bleeding through to the back). 


I didn’t add very much in the way of embellishments since the patterns were so “busy”. 

Here’s a close up of the paper pieced dress…that was a “take your glasses off” kind of cutting there.  LOL.  It was pretty hard to see the lines stamped in black on dark paper!


And here’s a pic of the inside of the card.  You can also see how I used a leftover scrap of dp to line the top inside of the envy to match.


The sun is finally shining here with warmer temps!  yay!  I hope you have a blooming good day!
