Thanks Doire95 for sharing that glue tip....I have used vellum tape but didn't really like the results. Will have to try this way.

Have you tried this on white velum yet? I noticed she did this on colored vellum. I wonder if it would work as well on white vellum.

Connie's tip is excellent. She showed a similar tip for gluing intricate die cuts.


I believe the color you're seeing in/on the vellum is picking it up from the other CS being used. The vellum is the usual white.

Default Minc Foiling Tip

Tip for all on Reactive mist! I absolutely hated it, because the spray is a stream. I now use a mister, currently Stampin Up. I'm sure the mini Tim Holtz misters will work just as well. I squirt about half a mister of Reactive Mist into my mini mister and add a dropper full of water, I'm guessing the water is about 1/3 of the amount of Reactive Mist. It foils beautifully, and more control depending on how far the mister is held from your project!!! Plus your Reactive Mist will last longer.
Give it a try and please let me know how it works for you.

I have not heard of reactive mist. I tried googling it but came up with nothing.

Me either. Apparently it's used with reactive Minc foil:

(I don't have a Minc, just curious.)

I needed to make a mask with a sticky note today but I'd already put away the stamp I used on the card front. I found that if I put the sticky note (a yellow one) over the stamped image I could trace it and didn't need to stamp it before I cut it out.

Since I'm kinda late to this stamping party, you probably already do this but thought I'd share it anyway.

SU fine tip glue pen and similar applicator tip applicator fix supplies. 16, 18, and 20 gauge 1/2" blunt leur lock needles. They can be purchased in non sterile industrial use only in packs of 50 or more. Depending on where they're purchased, the price per needle is approximately 11 to 15 cents per needle. Fixed all of my clogged tips by just replacing the needle. I normally use a 20cc leur lock syringe to blow out the tips at the end of my craft day, but mediums like my Pico Embellishers were impossible to clear after being in storage during our cross country move, now they're good as new!

An 18 gauge leur lock 1/2 inch blunt tip needle is sufficient for most mediums.

Whoops, I Posted in another thread, but should have posted here.

had a 'why didn't I think of this 10 years ago?!' moment ...

You know those little plastic bits on the one side of your pop dots and what a pain they are when you're removing them and they're on your desk top? or fluttering onto the floor and good luck finding them all (or if you're like me, trying to toss them in a little trash can and dealing with static electricity in the winter ... sigh ...) anyway ... by happy accident, I had a tape loop on my desk (for another project) and one of those buggers flew off and onto the tape loop ... and the lightbulb came on! I now have a tape loop on my desk to snag those darn little plastic bits before they get into other annoying places.

What exactly is a tape "loop" if I may ask? Probably a stupid question. Just a piece of tape taped to itself to form a loop? trying to picture it. Sounds good if it's something I can do.

Yep, Ginny, you got it exactly. A piece of tape, taped to itself, sticky side out. (as a retired teacher who made them in her sleep, it's good to be reminded that the whole universe may not know what the heck they are, so thanks for asking. )

side note: there's a way to put them on art projects before putting them on the wall that will keep them on the wall and there's a way that will cause them to slide/roll down the wall. I imagine you didn't really even want to know you didn't know that, did you? lol!

I make Tape Loops all the time to pick up the little pieces that fall out of detailed thinlits onto my floor, as well as for the Shredder Bits that fall on the floor when I am dumping them from the shredder to the recycle bag. However, I never knew they were named "Tape Loops". LM

lol! and it looks so grand with capital letters, too. To think our humble bit of tape has risen to such stature. bwahahahahaha!!!! (and for those of us who have fur babies ... are those loops not the most wonderful thing to roll down pants or couch cushions when the lint roller is ... where the heck is that thing right now?!?!?!)

sorry ... back to your original programming .... (giggle)

What a dork ... totally meant to comment earlier on what a great idea it is, using tape to grab those little thinlit bits that fall on the floor. Brilliant! (especially if you get to deal with static electricity and they sometimes fly off and into the air and who knows where they land ... and the whole dryer sheet in your sandwich thing is something you're not happy with ... sigh ... )

I use the clear film that has sticky on it that I pull off of my Xyroned (lol new word here?) paper to pick up bits of paper. That way it is double use. Glue on my small cuts and it picks up debris. But I stumbled onto a find at J. C. Penny's. A desk vacuum. Hand held and battery operated, it sucks up bits of paper on you desk. And the good news was it was half price for less than 4 dollars.

I also use a lint roller to pick up loose pieces. Works great for glitter, too!!!

Poster Board Tip
I just read a post about poster board, and my favorite use for it prompted me to share as a tip. Perhaps someone has already posted this tip, but just in case . I use white poster board in place of chipboard for adding dimension to my diecuts. It's cheap and works fantastic, plus alcohol markers work great on it too.

About the tape loop/lint roller tips. If you can't find a lint roller, a tape loop works great if you actually need to remove lint. And of course clear packing tape works faster than smaller tape.

Silly little tip, but one that eliminated a small, ongoing mess or constantly bending down for a trash can or recycling box. I placed a little metal flower pot from IKEA on my trimmer table between my two trimmers against the wall for the skinniest/tiniest scraps.

Previously they'd pile up or I'd keep reaching down to put them into a bin. Now those tiny bits just get plunked into the pot, which I like looking at anyway.

Not silly at all, and way cuter than the lunch bag taped to the edge of my space. Very cute!

Default Those SU Stamp Labels

Don't know if this tip already exists, but thought I'd post just in case. I never put the stamp labels on my SU clear stamps, so used one on my journal. I'm sure I can find more uses for them.

There may be some of you who, like me, have more Washi Tape than you will use in a lifetime. I figured out a way to use some of the extra... Today I was preparing to mail an envelope that needed extra reinforcing. I had a roll of Washi Tape in front of me - and I discovered I could decorate the envelope a bit and use some of the extra tape at the same time.

After years of following this thread, I actually have a tip to add to it. Although, knowing me, it's probably something everyone else has been doing forever, and it just occured to me. lol

I hate to mail plain envelopes, but somehow never get around to doing the envelope at the same time I'm making the card. Recently, I was in a hurry to get to the post office to mail some cards and didn't have time to go figuring out which stamp(s) use, getting them out, cleaning them when I was done, etc. My Big Shot always sits out, so it's quick and handy. I'd just finished organizing my embossing folders the night before. I grabbed some envelopes and embossed them. Quick, super easy and I get to make use of all those EF's that usually sit unused because I tend to use the same two or three, despite having over 100 of them at last count.


Decided to put pictures rather than trying to explain.

I've embossed the flap for years but never thought of embossing the main envelope. Looks wonderful. I wonder if the Post Office likes this, though, as they scan the front through their machines. But I'm going to use your idea anyway. Thank you!

I brought them up to the window to mail at the post office. All the mail lady said was how pretty they were, so I guess they're okay. And everyone's been receiving them as far as I know. I think as long as there's plenty of clear space around the address it's being mailed to it should be okay.

I love the idea - thank you! I don't have tons of embossing folders but almost never use them.

And I was more wondering if the bumpiness would mean an extra charge - IOW if it goes through the machine or has to be hand canceled. Have you mailed any to yourself as a test to see how the embossing holds up? I'd think even if it gets somewhat flattened it will still show up well.

Pam, That was the best suggestion I've read all year. Maybe in a few years. I also hate to send undecorated envelopes, but this adds so much. I can't wait to try it.

This wasn't my idea and I don't remember who it was, but this has been such a time saver for me. I bought these empty fine-tip glue bottles and squeezed my Tombow into it. I used to have to squeeze the Tombow into a water bottle cap and use a toothpick for fine detail. LM

I use "tape loops" (scotch tape looped backwards onto its self) to pick up glitter on the floor, table, etc. Works great!

So THAT's what I bought those bottles for! I think I bought them over a year ago. LMBO I came across a package of them last week, and could not remember what I bought them for!
