    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Dee asks: "I was gifted a lot of stamping supplies. There are lots of little jars of things and I can't tell if they are fine glitter or embossing powder. Is there a way to tell the difference?"
    A: I think I'd run some double sided adhesive or a tape runner across a piece of scrap cardstock and pour a small swatch from each bottle. Knock off the excess and press the powders into the adhesive, then try heating each swatch with a heat gun. The embossing powders will melt, and the glitters will hopefully stay in place on the adhesive and not blow all over!
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Motocross Mom has ideas for the Layered Autumn Trees tutorial: "Absolutely gorgeous! I do not own a small dots stamp; however, I am thinking I can add the dots using fine tip pens or a stylus and ink. So pretty. Thank you for the layering of ink idea first."
