Cool Why did I buy this???

The Essential Glue Pad??

It is just sitting here on my table, has been for a couple of weeks now and I have no idea why I even bought it.

Anyone have any ideas or examples for me?

Thanks!!

Isn't this the pad that you use like VersaMark and Heat&Stick powder combined, to adhere glitter/PearlEx and other colorant to a stamped image?

Glitter! Remember all those Papertrey Butterflies with glitter on them? That's why I bought it. Haven't used it...um...in a while...but Julee told me I had to get it, so I did. LOL

OK...this is too funny as I have two of them. I bought them online and had heard they were great so I decided to get one to keep for a gift. Well...never have used it!

If I remember correctly, from all my blog hopping. all you have to do is stamp and then pour glitter over the glue stamped image. I don't think you need to heat it. Let us know if it works!

I haven't used mine in a while, but it did work great for glitter and pearl ex. Hopefully once I get my stamping room finished I will have more time to play.

Ummmm.... I don't like mine much either.

It just does not work that well, although the instructions do say to use it on glossy paper and I did have much better results on glossy(some of the glitter actually stuck).

I had visions of glittery stamped images but frankly, I'd rather stamp with a chalk or pigment ink and then emboss with Ranger Holographic embossing powder. I still get a glittery look, that does not fall off all over the place!

You bought it because of Anna Wight's post here: http://sweetmissdaisy.typepad.com/sa...its/index.html and of course the fab work from Nicole Heady!!!

I have used mine and I do LOVE it! I will say though to keep your reinker handy...you will use a lot of ink, at least I do, to make whatever you are applying really stick. If you use too little the glitter/flock/etc won't stick properly. At least that's what I found to be true!

I also think EllenH had a blog post too where she created faux ribbon using it, I've done that as well and it works quite nicely. Unless you have a 3 yr old who insists on rubbing it, in which case it will start to rub off!! lol!

I have the Palette glue pad that has to be stamped and then heated and the Essential glue pad that doesn't need to be heated. I haven't use either yet... but I will some day. (Like a lot of the other stuff I had to buy.)

I hate mine - I stamp an image and then glittered it (right away). Two days later the glitter came right off. So NOT PLEASED with that.

So now it just sits

Did you seal it with some cheap $1 store brand hair spray? That should've sealed it so that the glitter would've stayed.

I have used mine some, not and then - mine came with the glue to put on the pad - and then you have to make certain that you put the clear inner lid back on (just like the stazon pads) and then I read somewhere that when you put it away you should put a spritz or two of water on the pad to keep it from drying out and getting hard...so far, so good. No complaints here!

I love mine! I use it on lots of 2 part stamps with flock. So I have flocked flowers, birds, dogs, trees- flocking everywhere! I haven't had any trouble with the flock coming off after the glue dries, but I did find that if I press it while I apply it sticks better (As opposed to just dumping it on and then shaking the excess off) I like the fact the my 2 and 4 year olds can "help" without getting glue absolutely everywhere!... well, at least less glue everywhere

I love my Glue essentials too. The glue essentials keeps really good detail on word or intricate stamps.

It is best used with fine and ultra fine glitter, flock I think it can do foil too.

I didn't like the way it worked with glitter the 3 times that I tried it. I'll have to play a little more before deciding to chuck it.

For Glitter look I use Stickles. It is the easiest cleanest thing. And it comes in so many colors.
For chalking I use versamark or Perfect Medium.
I tried the glue pad and I did not like it.

Funny...I have asked myself the same question over and over again!! I finally used it a month or so ago....NOT a fan....could have saved myself 10.00...but it won't be the last time I waste money.

I used mine when I first got it for a project with my stamp club. All the glitter came off my project, and everyone else's. I didn't seal it. Maybe that would help. I felt a little foolish showing my great new find, and it didn't work the way I had hoped.

I'll try it again, and try sealing it to see what happens. Eileen
