I can't resist sheets like this: Easy to cut out and easy to use as blocks for your card. For the first card I chose a cluster of blocks for my base, then found the same patterns on the sheet of paper and cut them out one by one. Mixing between GlueArts Raisen's and U Cut It Foam it gave the card variations on the dimension.

Usually I'd use the glue glider to adhere this block to the card, but because the dimensional front was already in place I opted for the extreme adhesive squares instead.

Finally - block letters allows this technique to be used - cut a long strip of U cut it foam, attach the letters to it then apply the whole title to the card.

  6. Oh my goodness!!! these are wonderful. I love the layout ideas from the painting to using the spiral blossom as an embellishment instead of a flower is so cool. And the use of Glue Arts foam is so cool. Haven't had a chance to try that yet. These are wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

  40. Hi Sweetie...
    Great projects once again. You all never, ever disappoint with your creative minds.

    How fun is the collection set, but these darn glue products are just TDF. I need a Glue Glider PRO. What a great product.

    Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to have one in my craft area. Julie has me hooked on the Zip Dry, but I know this would be great for embellishments.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry
