I found a way to Create Color Co-ordinated Custom Dimensional Embellishments!
You're Gonna LOVE this one!!! I had a major brain storm this time!!! While working on my son's house and our room remodel I have been forced to not craft as much and I guess my brain went into crafty overload and came up with a doozy!!! And you are going to love it! What a time saver!!! And money saver!!! And all of your layouts and card are going to look TONS better. Are you ready?...... Watch the video and see all the possibilities of this new technique. I'm sure I will come up with a thousand more ideas for it but I wanted to get the video and idea out there for all of you. ENJOY!!! This will create all that dimension that we all love without having to use those pesky pop dots that I despise using. They are time consuming to use, they always end up showing and I HATE pulling off all those little pieces of paper and then having to clean them all up. NO MORE POP DOTS FOR ME :)
And because I'm sooo excited to have created this I am going to send 3 lucky followers a bunch of Fun Foam and patterned paper so they can create their own 3-D embellishments. Just leave your e-mail or a way to get in touch with you in the comment section of this post (the comment button is at the TOP of the post) and I will pick 3 followers in about a week. Good luck and ENJOY!
Here are the simple instructions...
1. Adhere patterened paper to foam with Xyron Sticker maker or matte medium
2. Adhere adhesive to back of foam if you wish before cutting out of Sizzix die by running it through your Xyron sticker maker again foam side down.
3. Place foam with cardstock attached on Sizzix die and run through die cutter.
4. Attach to project...
Fast and easy!If you are using white core cardstock, you may notice a white edge along the paper. You can easily camoflage that by running a matching marker along the edge to color it the same color as your foam and cardstock. You can tell the differance in the two pictures of the heart below.
Before edges are colored. AFTER edges are colored
