They are super simple! You just have to be patient to let the Crystal Effects dry!
I stamped some simple images on white cardstock and used the 1-3/8" circle punch to punch out the images. I brushed a VERY SMALL AMOUNT of crystal effects on the back (flat side)of the glass gem. Then I placed the stamped image on the crystal effects face down, (so when you turn it over the image shows through the glass). After you let it dry, I used a little bit more crystal effects to glue down a magnet.
I used clear glass gems from http://www.wholesalersusainc.com/glass-gems-marbles-glass-gems-jumbo-c-58_66.html
These jumbo size gems worked great with the 1-3/8" punch - no trimming!
I tried ones from the craft stores, but they seemed to have alot of air bubbles which distorts your stamping!
A lesson I learned this last time making... of course I was trying to rush... I used too much CE and the images ran a bit!
