Terrifically Tacky Tape{C’est Bon}


Just a quick {C’est Bon} entry from me today. This renovation is certainly taking its toll this week! Today I’d like to give a huge thumbs up to one of my favorite adhesives, Terrifically Tacky Tape by Provocraft. This adhesive is not for your usual adhesion of paper layers etc. but is fabulous for adding some special effects. Super, and I DO mean SUPER adhesive allows you to adhere almost anything to your project. If you have something hard to adhere…this is the perfect adhesive. The Terrifically Tacky Tape comes in sheets 6.75″ x 9″in size and has two sheets per package. Also, this super adhesive comes in a roll of narrow tape that is perfect for adhering difficult altered projects as well as creating borders of embellishments. The tape rolls come in a variety of sizes to meet your particular needs… 1/8″, 1/4″, 1/2″, 1 1/16″

What to do with it…

  • adhere over layer, cover with clear microbeads
  • adhere heavy metal embellishments
  • die cut shapes and apply small loose embellishments over top
  • punch it
  • apply beads
  • apply flocking
  • adhere cardstock to altered project
  • adhere glitter
  • the strip adhesive is perfect for holding together journals and wrapped candles as well as other projects

How to apply…

  1. Cut, punch or die-cut to desired size or shape.
  2. Remove one side of protective backing. Apply to surface.
  3. Remove other side of protective backing. Apply item to be adhered.

Things to Note:

  • Make sure you are totally committed to where you want this adhesive…when it is adhered, there is no going back
  • If you are nervous about applying your adhesive staight…just turn down a tiny corner of the backing to adhere one corner, then slowly peel off the backing applying the adhesive in a smooth manner.
  • I love using my Guillotine paper cutter with this adhesive sheet. It always gives a great clean cut

This product is available at your local craft store, local stamp or scrapbooking store as well as some on-line stores. This product doesn’t look very glamorous on the shelves but if you try it…you’ll be amazed at the fun techniques and looks you can get with it.

Beaded Birthday (click to enlarge photos)


I created this birthday design for a good friend of mine whose birthday is this week. I tried to use products and a style that I hope she likes. ๐Ÿ™‚ This patterned paper made me think of her when I saw it.

jks-beaded-birhtday-closeup.jpgTo create this design I started off by stamping my image panel using the Silhouette Blooms 2 stamp set and the Time to Stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms. After stamping and sponging the edges, I cut a piece of Terrifically Tacky Tape sheet the same size as my image panel and adhered it over top. I then sprinkled the entire surface with my clear Microbeads and pressed them in firmly to get a nice smooth even coverage.

To add to my distressed look of this card, I added some brown zigzag stitching and lots of sponging. I decided to try out another new idea I had by added a brushed on “frame” of Ranger Distress Crackle paint. I love how it slowly cracked as it dried adding to the shabby vintage look.
