Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Karen asked: "I prefer to use Elmer's Glue Sticks for my card making because I like the ability to reposition my cardstock. Sometimes there is some sheen from glue residue & I was wondering if you had a tip for removing the excess glue marks?"
A: I don't use glue sticks, but when I have excess adhesive, I use this eraser . I am not sure if it works for glue stick residue, but it's so cheap it might be worth a try.
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Victoria has a comment for the Magical Masking Tape tutorial: "Found that using light colors and a light touch worked best...also if using Stampin' Up ink pads the old "classic" ones are better as the new ones lay down too much ink."
