Wasn’t the Thermo-O-Web/BasicGrey eye candy we shared with you on Monday just wonderful!? Did you leave a comment for your chance to win all of those goodies? It’s not too late — we’ll be drawing a winner today at 3pm!
While we wrap up this give-away, we have more wonderful projects to share with you from Lisa Dickinson and Audrey Pettit.
Lisa’s project, featuring Grand Bazaar and Spice Market, uses Therm-O-Web’s adhesives in very creative ways! In addition to pop dots, Zots singles for her buttons and Sticky Dot Runner adhesive to hold her paper in place while machine-stitching, she also used the Fabric Fuse to glue down (and spell!) part of her twine title!
Many of you know Therm O Web for their fabulous line-up of sewing and quilting products and adhesives, but did you know that they also make fun embellishments, too? Today I have a couple of cards to share with you featuring the adorable Second City collection and lots of Therm O Web goodies, including one of their newer products, Glitter Dust Photo Frames.
For my first card, I used a purple scalloped circle Glitter Dust frame to highlight the focal feature of my design. Love how the printed chipboard and flair button nestle perfectly within the frame. Layering the frame with additional die cuts and embellishments draws lots of attention to my focal point, and is a great tip when using smaller accent pieces, like the flair button. I used 3D Adhesive Squares on the sentiment strip for a bit of extra dimension and drama, too.

My second card also features one of the purple Glitter Dust frames, this time from the Vintage Frame assortment. And once again I layered the frame along with lots of fun Second City die cuts and embellishments to create a focal point with lots of interest. And as before, I adhered some of the layers with 3D adhesive squares for a sense of depth and dimension.
To ensure that the sentiment transparency would be visible, I layered the die cut onto white cardstock first, and trimmed around the edges. Need a trick for adhering transparencies? Therm O Web’s 1/8″ SuperTape placed strategically on the colored borders of the die cut hold the sentiment firmly in place without showing any adhesive.
I tried my hand, for the first time, at using the Therm-O-Web Double-Sided Adhesive Sheets. I selected a die cut flourish and then ran it, along with my adhesive sheet, through my die cut machine.
After I adhered the die cut to my card base near the lower right corner, I peeled off the top layer of the double-sided adhesive, and coated it with pink glitter. This produced such fun results that I can’t wait to try it again!
I then adhered Vivienne paper across the top of my card using Therm-O-Web’s Sticky Tab Runner and started layering on the other supplies such as a die cut tag, chipboard, cardstock stickers, and ribbon. I added a bit of dimension by using 3D Foam Squares from Therm-O-Web in order to make my stickers pop off the card base and away from the glittered die cut just a bit.
