    Ask Beate
    Beate Johns answers your technique questions
    Q: Stephanie asked: "I would like to know how to affix rubber stamp images onto clear glass rocks that I can then make into magnets. Thanks!"
    A: "Clean a flat-backed glass marble (usually used in vases to stabilize flowers), dry it and set aside. Stamp your image onto cardstock and cut it into circle big enough to fit behind your marble. Now you can use either a Xyron® machine to add adhesive, or you can add a small dot of Crystal Effects or other clear dimensional glaze in the center of the cardstock, place the glass marble on top and move marble around to spread the adhesive. Make sure to only use permanent inks when using a liquid glue as water-based inks will bleed."

    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    MarshHen has a suggestion for the Embossing Resist tutorial: "I read somewhere that you can use cling free dryer sheets on your cardstock before embossing to prevent static cling. Never tried it myself, but it's worth a shot if you can't buy or find an embossing buddy."
