Today I'm going to share two cards I've created for an order I'm working on. The third one I made about a month ago for another order for the same customer. I decided I better take a photo and blog after I make a few. Otherwise I get behind and end up having to do everything all at once.
I popped up the sentiment on this one. I love this silver paper from TPC Studio. On the flowers I used some stickles to give them a little sparkle. Below is the sentiment I used on the inside.
To give this card a little pop I added the red jute and liquid pearls to the center of the flower.
On the inside I used a stamp from Verses Rubber Stamps called Warm Congratulations.
I added a little color with the red bling on this one.
I thought I'd share some of my favorite adhesives. Clockwise below I have my Scotch Advanced Tape Glider, Zip Dry Wet Paper Glue and foam mounting tape.
I'm so happy I decided to break down and buy the Scotch Tape Glider! After years of using inferior tape runners that don't adhere the cardstock to my projects I needed something new. I kept seeing people using them in videos I watch on YouTube. Thanks to my friend Susie over at Creative Cafe, I decided to purchase one. I asked her opinion and she emailed me a 40% off coupon for Michael's. It's a very aggressive adhesive which I love. When I use it, I know that nothing is going to fall off a project. I don't use it alot, but I would never go back to other tape runners that I once used.
My next absolute favorite is Zip Dry. I have other wet glues that I use for various projects, but this is my number one adhesive that I use exclusively. I use it for everything. I use this more than the tape glider.
The foam mounting tape shown in the photo above is something that I buy at the Dollar Store. I saw a video (I can't remember who did the video - sorry!) and the woman said that's what she used instead of buying foam pop up dots. What a fantastic tip! It's so much less expensive and all you have to do is cut it to size. I found it in the hardware section. I will never spend money on the other stuff again!
I was telling my husband I need more table space! The problem is I don't have room. I have one table to work on. The mess above is another table I use to the right of my work table. I like to pull everything out and have it at my fingertips while working. The only thing is, I fill it up so much I can't find anything! I really miss having a six-foot and a four-foot table to use like I did in our house in Minnesota. Now I'm down to two four-foot ones. My only option is to take the sofa out of my room. I can't do that because my furry friends use it. I wouldn't want them to have to lay on the floor!
