Q:  I’m new to card making and I’ve seen cards that have layers to them, but mine always turn out flat.  How can I change that?

A:  Try adding some 3-d adhesive behind some of the layers or even all of them.  For example, if you have a card with butterflies on it, add a 3-d adhesive onto the back of each butterfly to give it the effect that it’s flying.  If you have a card, that has a die cut sentiment on it, add a piece of adhesive to it to make it stand out.

Masked Florals for Mother’s Day

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi from the blog Blue Scallop Creations.

There are some really fun techniques for stamping out there, but by far, my favorite is masking.  I love that you can have the look of depth and volume on the front of a card, but still have it lie flat for easy mailing.  For my project today, I’ll be doing a simple masking technique using a floral stamp from Hampton Art’s Clear Layer Flower Amaze.

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.
