Stamps - If your image does not stamp smoothly, what I do
"rough" up the stamp gently with my Scrubby
one rub over that and it's perfect.
Plastic - Use a little baby powder on the cardboard
baking board and the piece won't stick.
- Prevent your confetti from sticking to the acetate by
rubbing the inside with a dryer sheet first.
Pins - Strapping tape is wonderful for attaching the pin
And it can be peeled off if you choose to
keep your pins in a binder for storage
E6000 glue is good, but hot glue will come
off after awhile because of the
slick surface of the contact paper or laminate.
Ink Pen - You can use this to write or draw, then emboss
The ink stays wet long enough! And you can
use clear embossing powder
over it for a look like using black embossing
ink. Metallic or clear
powders look best over black ink.
Paper - Next time you change a light bulb,
save the box! It's corrugated inside and you
can do marvelous
things with it! Like watercolor it, or run
your ink pad over it
to add color, then using a glue pen, go down
the insides and
then add glitter for a beautiful background!
Paper - Use this to keep your punches and decorative scissors
working smoothly. It also helps your stylus
flow more smoothly over
your paper when dry embossing.
Foil - Cut through a folded sheet of this to keep your scissors
and punches sharp! Follow with the waxed paper
to remove any stray
pieces. If they are still dull, try a light
sandpaper and cut through it.
