Celebrating Card with 3D Stars and Glitter

Hello everyone! I hope you are good! Thank you so much for all your best wishes and comments here, YouTube and social media. I'm feeling better but I have not returned to normal yet. The pneumonia left me weak and I'm tired almost all the time but I force myself to do things so I want to share with you this card that I made with the fabulous 3L Scrapbook Adhesives products.  I used the Foam Stars to bring dimension and textures to the background of my card.

Creating the background of my Celebration Card

Start with a 5 1/2 x 5″ white cardstock as the card panel, paint with distress oxide ink . Then adhere the 3D Foam Stars on the background.

Next, let’s create a design on the card panel. I used different types and sizes of the 3D Foam Stars. Make sure to keep the top liner on for now.

Now for the fun part: Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside! Carefully peel off the top liner from the 3D Foam Stars and sprinkle white glitter over all the stars. Press glitter lightly into foam stars and then tap off excess.

I stamped and embossed the sentiment in black on the card panel.  The pretty little girl is from La-La Land Crafts, I first stamped with white cardstock. Then colored the image with a combination of Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. After , cut out the image with my scissors, I placed 3D Foam Squares White Mix on the back and adhered it to my card front.

From this angle of the image, you can see all the dimension the 3D Foam adhesives add to the card. The stars look fantastic! Next, adhere the card panel to the black card base with Dual Tip Glue Pen.

It’s easy and fun to create this fantastic background, especially with the 3D Foam Stars! I love how it turned out and hope you find some inspiration from this card.

  1. Hello Marilyn, What a lovely, cute, happy card!! Marilyn, I simply love your work - watch your videos endlessly!! Could you please answer a question? I have been scrapping for many (15!!) years, but just don't seem to be able to master the "Splatter" technique. You seem to do it effortlessly - do you use watered down paint, and do you load your brush up heavily - or not so? Thank-you for the joy and inspiration your work brings to me.

    1. Hi Bev!! First, Thank you so much for your lovely compliments...You make my day! :) For the splatter techniques I mix half water/ half acrylic pain, it depends of the paintbrush that you achieve nice paint splatters, I recommend you to practice with different brushes. You can try with the brush that looks like a broom, it gives nice splatters. I hope it helps, let me know any other question. Thank for watching my videos, Hugs!!! :)

  2. Thank-you so much Marilyn...(think I might be improving with the "splatters"!!). Will now be trying the "hot glue gun" technique. xx
