Q: What are some different ways to use Washi Tape?
A: You can place it on a separate sheet of paper in strips and die cut or punch it out to create your own patterns.
A: Place a piece of waxed paper in between the cardstock and the die before running it through the die cut machine. It will keep the cardstock from getting into the die to deeply and will help it to easily come out.
Q: The ink on the image I stamped is still sticky and wet feeling. What can I do to get it dry?
A: Place a heat tool over the top of the paper and move it in circles to dry the ink. Remember to keep the heat tool up off the paper and to keep it moving so that you do not burn it.
Q: Other than paper what can I use to cover chipboard pieces to add color?
A: Paint is a great thing to cover chipboard. The Distress Paints come in many colors and add a nice aged look to any piece.
Q: There is one area of my embossing folder that doesn’t seem to be embossing my paper. What can I do?
A: It may be that the plate with from your die cutting machine is warped and the folder was laying in that area and did not lay flat enough for an even pressure to be placed on it when it went through the machine. Before removing the paper from the folder, simply turn it around and place it back on the plate and run it through again.
