Stamping with Adhesive

Did you know that you could use glitter, adhsive and your acrylic stamps together? First get an acid free glue like Helmar's Acid Free Glue. Put a glob down onto a piece of scrap paper. Grab your favorite stamp, I used SIGH GUSH GASP from MyStampBox. Spread your glue out in a thin layer. Stamp your stamp into the glue and use a Q-tip to take of any excess outside the stamp areas if there is any. You'll see from my example why you may need to do this. Stamp onto your paper and cover with glitter or flocking. Tap off excess. Use warm water and a Qtip to clean off your stamp. Make sure to practice before using on a layout or card.

Pin It!

Oh, good! I tried using my embossing pad and applying glitter. I made a mess, and the results were not as I had wished. I'm going to give this a go. I can't wait to try it!!
