Altenew Sticky Essentials Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)


Hey there, thanks for stopping by. I am so excited to be part of Altenew's Sticky Essentials blog hop, we are celebrating (and showcasing) everything sticky at Altenew. I don't know if you are aware but Altenew stock a huge range of their own brand adhesives. Everything from tape pens, double sided adhesive sheets to a 22 in 1 precision glue pen. There is a an adhesive for every possible part of your crafty project.

I have created a project using some of my go to adhesives from their range, let's take a closer look.

I started by adding watercolor to a pice of water color card using Altenew's watercolor brush markers. Once dry I cut out a cover panel using the layered medallions cover die A. I added this to my card using the 2 in 1 Precision glue pen.  "It features a fine tip to allow for precise application of glue - just perfect for those detailed die-cuts, small embellishments, and more! For a permanent bond, use when the glue is wet. For a repositionable bond, allow glue to set until tacky. ​"

The sentiment was created using the Reach for the Stars die set, I cut the base layer from Lilac card and the word layer from black card which had a piece of the Double sided adhesive sheet on the reverse, this made it easy for me to then peel the backing off and add to the base layer, much like a sticker.

I used some Instant Dimension foam tape to add the sentiment to the background. The tape is so easy to peel and can be cut down to suit the size of project you are working on. Finally I added a few AB Sequins using the glue pen.

Your next stop on the hop is Hannelie Bester, be sure to check out the Adhesives section of the Altenew store for all your sticky needs.
