Blog Hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Day 2!

Welcome to Day 2 of our very first collaborative blog hop with our friends at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L! Our design team has been playing with their products and discovering inventive ways to use them with Wow! Embossing Powders! 

Please leave our design team some love in the comments section below and you just might win some goodies from both our companies!  

Let it Snow card by Jenifer Cowles
I had so much fun using the foam sheets from 3L.  I took off the protective backing then sprinkled on the Metallic Blue Ultra and heated it then ran it through my embossing machine.  I used a small dot embossing folder from Cuttlebug, I then sanded lightly giving me the small white polka dots.  I love how this looks and I can't wait to play around with some more foam sheets.

Here is a close up.  I stamped the "ME Blizzard" snowflake stamp on a piece of vellum using Bright White  embossing powder and attached it with the EZ-runner.  I did the Let it Snow with a Wow pen and some Metallic Silver powder to tie it all together.  All of the ribbons are from May Arts and the Metal Snowflake are Momenta.


Hey!
It's Sian here with my cards using a combination of 3L's awesome adhesives and WOW!'s wonderful powders - what a match...made in heaven!


For this first card I embossed the background using the Vintage Wallpaper stamp and Metallic Gold Rich powder. I then die cut the trefoil pieces for the 3L 3D Foam Creative Sheets and used Metallic Gold Rich and Metallic Copper powders to create the central embellishment.  It gives a really lovely effect - it's so tactile and full of texture - I don't know why I hadn't tried it sooner!

Here's a wee close up...

I also made this second card...


I don't think I will ever need to buy embellishments again!!  I was really pleased with how well the 3L Dodz took the heat embossing.  I have experimented with opaque and the more translucent powders - they both give a fantastic finish.  The opaque powders create a more matt finish, akin to enamel dots, whereas the translucent powders give a higher shine and you can still see through the dots partly, like glass beads - awesome!
