Today, I’m sharing something that I have been asked about a lot so I finally did a video tutorial on it!!! Check out how to adhere Delightfully Detailed Designer Paper to your project!!!
All you need is a sponge, silicone mat, and Multi-Purpose Glue to adhere it to your project. Since the Delightfully Detailed Designer Paper is so delicate and small, most other glues are hard to use and you end up with a sticky mess. Simply add a dot of the glue to the silicone mat and dab it with the sponge. Then lightly dab all over your designer paper and stick it on your project. Press over the top for a few seconds to allow the glue to adhere to the cardstock and you are all set! No mess with glue all over or accidentally using to much! Check out the Video Tutorial below to see this in action and how little glue you really need!
If you prefer, the Fine Tip Glue Pen would work as well but the chance of using too much is higher with that glue I think.
Here is a quick and simple card I created using this technique and that perfect little detailed design along the side.
I started with a Poppy Parade card base. Next, I added the little strip of Delightfully Detailed Designer Paper along the left hand side. I was able to get 2 of these cards with each of the border pieces so that’s awesome! Then, I stamped the flowers and greeting from the Love What You Do Stamp Set in Black Ink. I added the pop of color with the flower dots in Poppy Parade Ink. For more contrast, I layered this piece onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and popped it onto my card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished off the card with a few Rhinestones for some bling!! This card could be created in any color you wish. I love card concepts like that!

Wow Laura! This is a great tip and I plan to use it. Thank you for the video.
Fabulous! I’m glad you found it useful and hope you enjoy using it! ~Laura
Thank you for this tip, I found the link on Pinterest! Do you know if the glue will come out of the sponge if you wash it? Or should it just be pitched when it’s been used over and over and is pretty gooey? thx for your thoughts.
If you wash it out right after, it comes out much better. If it dries, toss it. I have found the longer I wait to wash it out the more I can’t get it to come out like after a class and go home and unpack later. This is also why I use just a small sliver. You can get lots of sponge pieces out of 1 circle sponge! ~Laura
