AudreyPettit BG SecondCity HelloThereCard 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 Basic Grey Second City collection and lots of Therm O Web goodies, including one of their newer products, Glitter Dust™ Photo Frames.

AudreyPettit BG SecondCity HelloThereCard2

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.

AudreyPettit BG SecondCity BestTimesCard 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.

AudreyPettit BG SecondCity BestTimesCard2To 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.

Here are some notes from Kim on how she made this stunning canvas…
I used the Zots™ Adhesive Dots (LOVE how these turned out) as a dimensional element on the canvas, a row of Zots™ along the top edge and another smaller row along one of the canvas sides – I’ve included photographs of these details. I also used the Foam Squares dimensional adhesive in a similar way, placing a row of these at the bottom right of the canvas. The flower centre is raised as well using the foam squares, but it did not photograph well so I left that one out.

In addition I have used the strong  Super Tape™ permanent red tape to adhere my Basic Grey papers in place.

I have used patterned papers from Basic Grey Grand Bazaar, coordinating the colours to work in with this collection – matte acrylic paint, paint markers, a sharpie, opaque mists

Stunning wouldn’t you say!!
