My favorite adhesive – cut with my KNK

Take Two…lol, no matter what I did, I could not get the photos to show up so I am reposting.

 

If I had more time, I would have made this so much more intricate and detailed. But, alas, I am a lady with limited resources in that area. “Maybe some day” I always tell myself….I can dream

I just love what I can do with sookwang tape. I buy it in rolls and in sheets, to fit whatever purpose.  I apply it to paper and then cut it, or as in this project, I use sheets (which have backing on both sides) or make my own sheet by applying scrap non-stick sheets. I never throw away anything non-stick as it has so many re-uses – although it is primarily my solution for making my own glue dots.
Materials:
Sookwang or other sheet adhesive
Glitter Ritz
I cut a section of 6″ sookwang from a roll and applied it to scrap from my xyron 5″ sticker maker.
start
Next, I taped it down to my mat. Since it’s non-stick, this step is a must!
Next, I cut my image and carefully pulled it off the mat.

After deciding where to place it, I peeled off one of the backing sheets and pressed it to my paper.
tape
Then I applied glitter ritz, tapped off the extra and burnished it in with the tip of my finger.
glittered
I applied my other decorations and voila..a congrats wedding card!
finished
The paper is iridescent, so the glitter ritz “pops” out yet is very well matched to the card.

About Cuttin' with KNK (Michele)

I am the proud mother of 2 grown children, waiting for grandchildren some day. I've been married to my best friend since 1988. I have been crafting since I was a girl - I can't even remember a time when I wasn't creating something, and I've tried nearly everything. I discovered KNK in 2009 and have loved the company and its products ever since. The machines are so versatile and enhance my own creativity. It is rare that I make something without my KNKs.

  1. Love this idea! Thanks for sharing!!!! I have 3 or 4 sheets of this laying around here somewhere, Hmmm, I might have to dig it out!

    • It works great with the tiny glass beads and the faux fur powder too. I haven’t tried it with Flowersoft, but since its so sticky it would probably work. Think of all the possibilities!

  2. Ah…now I can see the pics! I looked it up and it seems pricey. What source do you use? And out of curiosity, how do you learn of all these unique things that most of us haven’t heard of?

    • I order from a website – the 6″ roll is around 50 dollars and it lasts a long, long time. Feel free to email me if you want the exact site.

  3. Great idea. For those folks who don’t have a Xyron, I’ve found that the peel-away, protective sheets from UPS and FedEx labels work great, too.

    • Excellent addition, Carole! I also use the backing sheets from rubber stamp foam – they are thicker/sturdier than the Xyron backing.

  4. Don’t you just love the way the glitter reacts when you do this. It is so much fun. Done some Christmas cards like this. TFS

  5. Thanks for the great idea! I use the tape all the time but never thought about using it in this way.

  6. Very,very pretty, Michele! That adhesive is fun to work with. I just can never remember the name of it. Thanks for the reminder.

    • I used the Maxx Air – the settings will vary according to what backing sheet(s) you are cutting through. With the sookwang thick backing, the adhesive layer, and a thin Xyron backing sheet I used pressure of 70 and speed of 350.

  7. I really enjoyed this card. Beautiful and yet another method for a project. Thanks for sharing.

    • Simple elegance done very quick – I love that I didn’t have to do a lot of set up work….it took me all of 5 minutes to pull a graphic, load the adhesive and cut it out. It took another 5 minutes to handle the adhesive, glitter, and other decorations.

  8. I’ve not heard of Sockwang before—I’m thinking it may be similar to some adhesive sheets that I purchase from Oriental Trading. I’m sure to scope the sockwang out—LOVE your glitter dove—classy card!! Thank you for your post!!! be blessed
