Balloon Framelits Dies & Hello You Thinlits Dies: Tutorial

CHALLENGE:  How in the world do you attach the words from the Hello You Thinlits Dies and the small pieces from the Balloon Framelits Dies when they are so narrow?  It’s a pain to use the Stampin’ Glue Sticks without making a mess, and the Glue Dots are too wide.

SOLUTION:  You are going to love, love, love this because it is so fun!!  Use a paintbrush with a thin point (like Royal Brush Big Kids Choice Round Paint Brush, Size 2, Pack of 12, which are a great value and you will have enough for workshops and classes if you are a demo) and Stampin’ Up!’s fabulous Liquid Multipurpose Glue.


squeeze a small amount of Liquid Multipurpose Glue into a bottle cap
paint a thin layer of glue on the back of the die-cut shape
adhere to card

That’s all there is to it!  It’s so fun, especially because when you use the Liquid Multipurpose Glue, you get to incorporate another technique into your card-making:  painting!
