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

29 September 2022

Hello and welcome to the Sticky Essentiels Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Helen Kalb's blog, you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog

What is your favourite Altenew Adhesive? Mine is the Instant Dimension Foam tape. I love using it on embossed images. A tape runner doesn't stick well to embossed surfaces nor to shiny papers so I use the foam tape. It is never leaves my side. 

For this card I created a watercolour background. I have noticed that my usual glue tape runner (which I love btw) doesn't adhere that well to watercoloured backgrounds. As I love adding some dimension to my projects, Altenew's Dimension Foam Tape is my go to product.  Super easy and super sticky. If you prefer a flatter look, use the Ultra Sticky Tapes

For my second card I created an embossed background with the Spring Blossom Embossing Folder. As the background isn't smooth it can be tricky to get elements to stick to it. The foam tape is for me the best way to go. 

Have you seen any new adhesives that you didn't know Altenew had? Give them a try as they are AWESOME.
