Using Gel Medium As An Adhesive

Do you sometimes have a sticker sheet and just don’t use it all? I often have that problem, and especially with tiny alphabet letters. I just don’t like using them. So instead I use them in other ways that make more sense to me.

For this card, I used the alphabet stickers together and die-cut them into a shape, but first I had to make sure they don’t pop off of the backing. And what better way than to use my Gel Medium.

I painted a layer over the stickers and left it to dry, before die-cutting the sheet into shapes and made some cards.

Step 1

Use a soft medium-sized paintbrush and brush over the sticker sheet using Soft Gel Medium.

Step 2

Use a shape die-cut to cut the stickers creating a whole new look. I used my DIYcuts machine and the Nesting Postage Die for this step.

Step 3

Then adhered the shape to a card front and decorated.

Not only did I use the Gel Medium as an adhesive but also as a thin protective layer over the small sticker letters.
