I know this will probably sound harsh, but please do NOT waste your time with a glue pad. I did exactly that last Christmas. Stamped 40 beautiful, glittered snowflake cards. Thought it had "set"...

Ya, I think this will be my first and last attempt at using this method. The glue pad just does not hold the glue at all. Maybe using vellum or coated paper is the trick, but I have read others had...

I love the look of cards that are color blocked. But whenever I've tried to do one, it takes a LONG time of measuring. Does anybody have any "tricks" or techniques that make it...
