I do the same thing; I think it's helpful to replacing the stamps.
inky hugs,

As you can imagine, not much time for my new hobby. I don't have any tips to add now but hopefully I will in the future. Thanks for all the information! Also glad to find the tips for newbies site. Hope to get to know you all!
I don't have the same problems, BUT try to take a little notebook with you. Write down some of your desired projects or ideas. Then when you get into THE BASEMENT, you'll have an idea to work on.
Blessings on you and your extended family,

I was wondering how long it would take to read through this thread.

Not sure if this has already been posted, but I am really loving how I have my dies stored for the big shot especially the bigz and originals also works great for the embossing folders. I have them stored in SU stamp cases, keep the paper that comes with them put it in the case, I put a label on 2 ends and if I cut a die I put the die cut cs (ex extra daisies) I didn't use inside the case with the die.

For the sizzlits, mover & shaper magnetic pieces, I put 4 in a box
I havent found the ideal solution for the long decorative strips but maybe when I read through this thread i will.

Reading back over the tips I see some ladies are looking for 'clear' thread. I bought that before I moved to SA and it is called invisible thread. It is similar to, but finer than, fishing line. You should be able to find it in a good sewing department or shop. Hope that helps.

Baby wippes and clear stamp scrubber: I can't live without when I'm stamping.

And one more thing: after embossing, i put some glitter on the stamp, press a little with hand and then, heat again. Perfect and brilliant!

My tip is that I stamp with newspaper under my card stock. Helps the design come out better because there is some cushion underneath.

My tip is ...

I stamp off the ink from my stamp onto a decent sized piece of white cardstock (I keep Georgia Pacific 110# handy) before using my scrub pad.

The reason I use cardstock and not copy paper, etc. is because I often will punch shapes out of it to embellish the card I just made. The colors coordinate perfectly since they were the same used to make the card and I like for each of my cards to have a unique factor.

Sometimes (esp. if using red ink) I will use a baby wipe after stamping off (but before using my stamp scrub). When it is filled with assorted colors I let it dry and if I like the color combo I will make a color copy of it (my printer takes the GP 110# white). Again, another unique factor.

Happy Holidays and ...


Happy Crafting!

I did not read through all 25 pages of this thread so this may have been posted but here goes anyway. When you want to get a super crisp crease without the shiny line on your folded cards, place a sheet of copy paper on top of your card, making sure to feel for the crease, then run your boning tool over the crease while pressing down firmly. Turn the card over, replace the paper and repeat. Now you have a nice sharp crease with no shiny line!

I just found a brand new favorite tip. This lady used a Cuttlebug plate as an acrylic block for her project!

I don't know on which of the 20 pages of this thread that I saw this tip, so I don't know who exactly to thank, but THANK YOU to the person who shared the tip about using rubber cement to keep your chalks in place!!!! I just did it on my newest set of SU chalks, and it's soooo nice not to have them wobbling all over, and worrying about them falling out.

grateful2bsaved suggested I post a tip from another thread over here (I didn't even know it existed....now I need to read all 40+ pages!) - here is my tip for using up those old stickers you have hanging around and go UGH everytime you look at them:

I rub the adhesive side with my embossing buddy to remove all of the stickiness. Then I pop them up on pop dots and use them like I would a diecut. Most of the time, you can't even tell that it was a sticker! Here is a link to two cards where the main focal points are actually stickers from many years ago:

shower card - the umbrella is a sticker

sympathy card - the frame around the butterfly is a sticker

Hmmm ... I wonder if all you clever ladies are posting your tips on a different thread now? Seems odd that the tips just "stopped". I might just have to go browsing through threads again... LOL

A couple of you mentioned your favorite dry embossing tip. My favorite is to use a clipboard to hold the cardstock while heat embossing. It works great because it is a flat surface, allows you to keep from burning yourself or from ruining your table. I found a small one 7 x 11 inches and Sams Club. I covered it with foil because someone said that would speed up the heating process.

I use a clipboard covered with foil as well and it really does speed up the heating process.

I don't know if this was already listed but I think it is so clever; I use old stamping catalogs under my stamping, gluing, paper and when I am finished doing whatever I just rip out the page and throw in the trash; next page is ready for the next task. The thickness of the book also is good padding for stamping.

I also do this and it works like a charm. The foil does speed up the process for me. I suppose the type of heat gun you have may weigh in to whether a person would need to do this. I use the heat gun made by Ranger and the foil really helps. As for the clipboard, I just have a standard size but the small size would be nice

I have a piercer that is about the size of a pencil that I often use. I keep it in a pencil holder on my desk so it is easy to find. I also like using a bigger needle with a sharp tip when stamping away from home. I use a small block of styrofoam on the tip for each of these so I don't "pierce" myself!

In my "on the road" kit I have a giant push pin stuck in a cork from a wine bottle. It works great for piercing and I don't get stabbed.

I have an old dissection kit from my school days. All the tools in it have proved useful in paper-crafting and they're all much stronger than many craft versions. There's a piercing tool, tweezers/forceps, scalpel & blades (fantastic for hand made paper that can quickly blunt or even wreck many cutting tools) & another tool that I use to hold small items down. The case it comes in is good & strong & I also store other small tools in it.

I needed small rubber stamps for a workshop project. I didn't want to buy a lot. I used small punches and punched fun foam. I glued the shapes onto wine corks. Instant stamps.

The thickness of the book also is good padding for stamping.
I could never do that. I keep the catalogs for the ideas. I have many and took them to Office Max and had them spiral bound

Ditto. I don't have them spiral bound but do definitely keep them for the ideas.

I buy those big desk sized calendars at the Dollar Tree , it has 13 BIG pieces of paper plus a nice thick cardboard backing which makes a great stamping surface. When they mark them down I buy extras and if they don't mark them down or they sell out I tuck my good ole SU! grid paper into the corner and keep on stampin'.

Take any color brad--I use plain gold because a bought a whole PILE of them really cheap somewhere and have a lot of them...put the end of the prongs in a long handled holder of some type so you don't burn your fingers. Then WITHOUT COATING THE BRAD HEAD WITH EMBOSSING INK, just blast the head of the brad with your heat tool for about 15-20 seconds--enough time to really heat it up. Then immediately dip the head into any embossing powder. The powder will stick to the head of the brad. Blast the brad again to melt the embossing powder. Viola--custom colored brads! You can re-heat the brad, dunk in EP again, and heat again for a thicker layer. Works great for me!
