Glue Dots + CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop

Hello everyone -- welcome to the Glue Dots and CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop. You hopped on over here from Kim Rippers blog. Today I wanted to share my new favorite product from Glue Dots -- the Glue Lines products -- but Glue Dots has been around for along time and they have a lot of really great products to choose from. 

I bet you're wondering what I really love about the Glue Lines...right? Well let me tell you -- these 1" lines of glue are perfect to permanently attach items to your paper projects and give them a little bit of dimension. They are pretty easy to use, just tear a piece of the cellophane strip they are packaged on and attach it to the item you want to attach to something else. The BEST part -- the cellophane stays on the Glue Line until you decide you're ready to attach it. This little feature allows you to prepare a large amount of items without having them stick together AND you can move it around on your project until you're sure where you want it to be.  

To make this card I used some Masking Fluid to mask the lines of the spider web and then painted Black and Indigo Acrylic Paint over the paper. Before it was dry I sprinkled some salt (my favorite technique) over the paint. 

When the paint was COMPLETELY dry I used an eraser to remove the masking fluid. For the sentiment, I stamped and embossed the word Boooo! using White Embossing Powder on Vellum and attached it to the bottom of the card. 

Then I used the Glue Lines to attach the Black Glitter Bats. Such an easy card, and the Glue Dots Glue Lines sure make attaching the bats super easy.
