Glue Arts Would Like Your Vote!!

It's Election Week!

Time to cast your votes around the country for the candidate of your choice!

Glue Arts would like your vote!

We want to earn your trust, win over your confidence and be the Adhesive of Choice!

We can do that with your help!!

This week along with election week we're excited to showcase The Twinery! 


The Twinery sells 100% cotton twine made in the USA! It's available in 8 colors that are perfect for all occasions and are just the right embellishment for cards, treat packaging, gift tags...you name it...chances are the Twinery is a perfect option for that! Here are some sweet ways to use the twine on your cards! 







You Brighten My Day Card
Designer: Lindsay Wahl 


Adhesives: GlueArts Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac, Perma Squares cartridges, GlueArts Ribbon Adhesive, GlueArts 3-d Combo Pac
Twine: The Twinery Caribbean, Lemondrop, Lilac, Mandarin, Maraschino, Peapod 
Card, Cardstock: DCWV
Die Cut machine: Sizzix
Embossing folder: Provo Craft
Ink: Stampin’ Up, Tsukineko
Marker: Copic
Punches: EK Success
Stamp: Hero Arts

Instructions:
1. Trim white cardstock to 5”x 4”; use punches to create border. 
2. Place Ribbon Adhesive in the middle of the cardstock. Adhere directly to the cardstock, trim and peel away the liner. Place twine onto adhesive. 2-3 pieces will fit on one line of ribbon adhesive. Leave a small amount of fringe at either end of the rainbow. Continue until you have created the entire rainbow. I used 3 strands per color. I started with the middle colors and worked my way out in either direction.
3. After you’ve created the rainbow, turn the cardstock over. Add a line of Perma Tac adhesive to the back of the cardstock. Wrap the bottom fringe around to the back side of the cardstock. Repeat with the top fringe.
4. Emboss the cardstock with your die cut machine. Ink the image as desired. I covered the rainbow with a scrap of paper while I inked the raised image. Adhere the completed cardstock to the card using Perma Tac and Glue Glider Pro.
5. Create small clouds from scraps of white cardstock. Ink the edges of all of these items with black marker. Use Raise’n’s and UcutIt foam to vary the dimension on each of the clouds. I stacked two Raise’n’s on top of each other to make the middle cloud stand out.
6. Stamp card sentiment and cut with oval punch. Ink the edges with black marker.
7. Create small bow with Lemondrop twine. Using the manual advance feature on the Pro (that little green wheel on the back), apply a Perma Square to the bow. Adhere the bow to the oval.
8. Trim a piece of UcutIt foam to desired size and adhere to oval. Adhere oval to card.


 White on White Cards

Designer: Kristen Swain

Supplies:
Glue Arts adhesives - Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro with High Tac cartridge, Glue Arts Mini Adhesive Squares

Twine- The Twinery

Instructions.

1. For each card, have either a 5x7 or a 5x5 card base in white.
2. Emboss white cardstock with desired folder, then adhere to card base with High Tac cartridge.
3. Make flowers by punching white cardstock circle, adhere mini adhesive square to center of punch, then loop twine 5 times, bringing each loop back to center and securing with adhesive square. Punch second white circle, adhere directly over other punch making a sandwich with loop ends. Push twine through glitter button holes, then tie knot and trim off ends. Adhere button to white cardstock with mini adhesive square.
4. Adhere flowers to cards like shown, add additional twine around card, tying into bow to secure onto card.
5. Finish card with flower stems or sticker letters.

Designer tip- you can make your own glitter buttons by using liquid glue to adhere colored glitter to clear buttons.


Thank You Card

Supplies:

Mini Adhesive Squares
3D Combo Pac – U Cut It
Other: Bo Bunny Learning Curve; 2” diameter wood craft disk



Instructions:
  1. Create 5” x 7” card.

  4. Next, paint a 2” wooden disk brown and let dry.
  5. Apply High Tac adhesive with the Glue Glider Pro across surface.
  6. Starting in the center, wind the Cappuccino Twinery around and working outwards. When you reach the edge trim and tuck end under with a craft knife.
  7. Punch 4 flowers from yellow pattern paper, layer then adhere Twinery embellished disk to flower center using Mini Adhesive Squares.
  8. Apply the High Tac to the back of the paper flower and adhere to top of stem.
  9. Wrap Cappuccino Twinery around the blue rectangle near the center of the stem 3 times and tie a knot.  I also tied on a small tag with a heart punch at this time.

  69. Thank you for all the lovely projects! I just casted my vote for the favorite cartridge. It was tough because I like them all. Different projects call for different cartridges. Some projects require strong bonding but need a liitle delicate touch. So, thank you Glue Arts for differents types of cartridges.
