Valentine Love With GlueArts!

Love is in the air!

Valentine's Day is less then a week away and we're celebrating love with Valentine projects for you all week long.

We asked the GlueArts Designers to use our GlueArts U Cut It Foam as  part of their supplies and each day we're more and more astounded by their creativity!! Aren't you??

U-Cut-It Adhesive FoamSpooled Ribbon Adhesive

Other: Bella Blvd pattern paper and alpha chipboard; Fiskars Squeeze Punches and Border Punch; glitter

1. To create the string covered circle accent, I started by cutting a circle from U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam. The circle on this card is 2 ½”. I marked the center of the circle with a pushpin. Then I removed the backing of one side. I tied a knot at the end of the string, trim the excess and pressed the knot into the center of the circle. From there, I wound the thread around the knot gradually working my way outward. Once the entire surface of the circle was covered, I cut the end of the string and tucked it under.

Tip: Be sure to take your time and press down the thread as you go. 

2. To cover up the edges of the foam, I applied a length of Spooled Ribbon Adhesive around the circle edge. Press firmly before removing the Ribbon Adhesive backing. Then I pressed the circle’s edge into glitter.

3. I removed the remaining backing from the foam circle and pressed it onto a larger scalloped circle cut from red pattern paper. I used the Glue Glider Pro with Perma Tac Pro+ Adhesive to adhere the circle accent to the top portion of my 5” x 6” card. I also adhered a punched scallop border strip and floral strip of pattern paper just below the circle accent. Next, I punched out 2 hearts from red and pink pattern paper and applied small leftover pieces of U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam to the back of each punch.

Tip: I store all my left over scrap pieces of U-Cut-It Adhesive in an empty Glue Glider cartridge container. They’re perfect for small punches or unusual shapes that I want to give dimension to.

4. I finished the card with chipboard alpha letters at the bottom.

Did you know that using the Perma Tac adhesive on transparencies actually doesn't leave visible traits? At least not for bright colored papers, I need to test this on dark ones too..
I love seam binding! Here I added some subtle pink shimmer (the pretty pink glimmermist-color snow angel) to the trim.
For the smaller embellishments I decided to use raisen's. Quick & simple!
For those of us with a die cut machine; simply just use a chipboard or precut shape & trace w/permanent pen. Or freehand-draw one!
Peel off, add lots of glitter, tap off.
