The Skinny on Adhesives

What do you need to put a card together?  Adhesive of course!  But, what kind of adhesive?  Stampin' Up sells no less than 11 different kinds!  Which one do I need and when would I use it and why?  Here to answer those questions for you is Crafty Clues by Heather:  The Skinny on Adhesives for Movie Monday.


I hope you learned something and if you already knew all that, share this with someone who is just starting out with papercrafting.  Maybe it will help them.

I wanted to show you the results of a play session I had with the new photopolymer stamp sets, Sweetie Pies and Sweetie Pies frames.

I had a lot of fun making thank you cards for my customers using this adorable new set!  Normally, I don't like the cutesy card designs (though I admire the skills of those who are able to use copics to colour them in), but these are cute without being over the top and you can colour them in or not. I really like the frames and flourishes that comes in the coordinating frames set as well.  The little faces will work as stamped or you can do a little bit of colouring with Stampin' Write Markers, or ink and blender pen or aqua painter.

It won't be long though until, Stampin' Up finally brings out it's own Blendabilities, alcohol based markers with each of the 12 colours available as a set of three - light, medium and dark - easily blended like copics.  I will be able to preorder 6 colour sets on May 1 (although release date to customers is still unknown), but I know I'm going to need some training to use them to best advantage!  I'm up for it - always liked learning something new!

My colour scheme for these thank you cards was Bermuda, Day, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Whisper White.  I used some of the Kaleidoscope DSP series papers as the background panel.

I hope you enjoyed Movie Monday and I'll see you tomorrow with another challenge entry.  Leave me a comment about what you think you'll see in the new catalogue.
