Q:  I wanted to highlight some places on my card with glitter so I used my glue pen over the top of the stamped image and now it won’t work.  What can I do to glitter stamped images?

A:  Before you go over the image with your glue pen be sure that the ink is completely dry.  It is best to use an ink such as Memento which is made to dry more quickly and becomes water resistant which prevents it from clogging up the glue pen as it is rolled across the surface.

 

     

Q:  I’m trying to color my stamped image, but having trouble with my ink smearing.

A:  You want to use an ink such as Momento ink and even with it it is best to allow it to sit for a little bit so that the moisture evaporates out of it.  Using a heat tool will help speed up this process.

 

Q:  I just can’t get the hang of stamping first and then die cutting around my image.  Is there an easier way?

A:  A stamp positioner will help you.  You can first die cut your image and then use the positioner to line up the die cut with the stamp.

 

Q:  Even with using an Anti Static Pad, I still get areas where embossing powder sticks.  What am I doing wrong?

A:  Try to handle the paper as little as possible especially after rubbing it with the Anti Static Pad.  Oils from your skin will also attract and hold the powder in place.

 

Q:  I would like to do a little stitching on my cards, but am not real good at sewing.  Is there anything I can use to achieve this look?

A:  These embroidery kits are the perfect way to achieve the look.  They come with everything you need to get you started.  They come complete with a template to use to get a variety of images and looks.

Q:  Can I use only the company’s dies that are the same brand as my die cut machine or can I use others?

A:  As long as you follow your instructions from the manufacturer of your die cut machine and the plate stacks that they recommend you will be able to use other dies in your machine.  Each type of die will require a different plate stack and some may require the purchase of specific plates so be sure to check first so you don’t cause damage to your machine.

Q:  I can’t get all of the embossing powder off my project before I heat it.  What do I do?

A:  First be sure your ink is dry before trying to remove the excess.  Once the ink is dry, you can use a paint brush to remove any extra powder.  Lightly, tap the project on a surface and be sure to tap the back of the project which will, also, help.  Using an anti-static bag before you stamp is a great way to keep this from occurring, too.
