Glue Dots and Pink & Main Blog Hop

Hello! I'm so excited to be part of the Glue Dots and Pink & Main blog hop! I've used Glue Dots products for YEARS! I absolutely LOVE them! I use the Micro Dots all the time to adhere small embellishments like die cuts and sequins. No messy glue! And the Micro Dots are super sticky! Of course I used them for today's project! I also used Glue Dots Pop-Up Dots which are FABULOUS for adding dimension without having to peel off all those little backing pieces from foam squares!

There are so many more amazing projects to see, so make sure you click through the rest of the links at the bottom of my post! Pink & Main is giving away a $25 gift certificate to one lucky commenter who comments on all the blogs in the hop on Wednesday, September 26th so be sure to leave a comment on each blog in the hop! And Glue Dots is also giving away a FABULOUS prize package!!

Adhering all of these little pieces was an absolute BREEZE using Glue Dots! I really dislike liquid glue because it always squeezes out and gets my fingers all sticky!

I started this card by stamping some snowflakes from the Pink & Main Snow Sweet stamp set using a light brown / tan colored ink onto my 4.25" x 5.5" top folding card base. I also stamped a sentiment from the Snow Sweet stamp set with some Distress Oxide Vintage Photo ink and used some clear embossing powder over the top for some added shine.

Then it was time to give my Big Shot a workout! Haha! I used the Wreath Base Dies and die cut the wreath shape from some white cardstock that I colored with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink. I also used the new Winter Wreath Decor Dies to cut out a bunch of coordinating shapes. I inked a piece of cardstock with Pine Needles Distress Ink and another piece with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink and cut out a BUNCH of of the little pine sprigs. I used a silvery blue glitter cardstock and cut out bunches of snowflakes and some gold glitter cardstock for the bow. I wanted the deer to have some variation of color, so I used a mix of Gathered Twigs and Walnut Stain Distress Ink as well as some Celestial Copper Delicata shimmer pigment ink blended onto some cardstock.

I grabbed my Glue Dots and just went to town! They fit PERFECTLY behind these little images! I used Micro Dots to adhere the base wreath and then glued some of the pine sprigs on top. I also used the Micro Dots to adhere the glitter snowflakes and tucked the green pine sprigs peeking out behind them. I wanted my bow and deer to have a bit of dimension and the Pop-Up Dots are AMAZING for adding a bit of lift but this card will still mail like a DREAM!

I can't say enough good things about Glue Dots! They are perfect for many projects - not just paper! I use them on all sorts of surfaces! Plastic, wood, etc! I'm so thankful to Glue Dots and Pink & Main for giving me the opportunity to be in this hop! Don't forget to click through the rest of the links below!
