These are so cute! Where did you find the large "marbles" I've only found the small ones and they're not exactly clear....they have imperfections that make words almost unreadable. Also, I've made the small ones but always stamped on paper. I'm with stampinginsc....you couldn't stamp directly on the marbles cuz the words would be backwords....you can call me stupid too! ;)
If you could let me know, I'd appreciate it. My e-mail is email@example.com Thanks! Cindy Hill

I guess I should of clarified I did stamp on paper just not SU brand paper. I cut circles using my CM cutting system so they were just about the size of the marbles - stamped, colored and then used a dab of crystal effects on the paper and put the marble on top - I moved the marble around a little bit so there was a full layer of CE on the paper and then let it dry. I had to trim around the marble slightly. I attached a magnet to the back using CE again.
I got the larger flatter marbles at Garden Ridge - they are clear but they do have some slight imperfections in them and they are not totally round. You could probably do almost the same thing using Picture pebbles that you can find in the scrapbooking isle at stores...only you would not have the slight magnification.

Love the magnets! I have also done these using circle stickers fron the $$Store. They are just about the right size, but it saves you if you don't have a punch that size! I also used magnet "tape" from the $$Store, but after a while they fell off. I just glued it back together with Crystal Effects, no probs now!
Well done to use Little Love, that's the perfect size!
