This blog is dedicated to stamping, tips, musings, and whatever I want to post. I want my cards to make you smile. You may copy, post, pin, anything you want. To me this is a sharing hobby.

Answering Questions

Q-How much ATG tape do you use on a card?

A-Surprisingly little compared to when I used the old red roller. I usually just either put a strip down 2 opposite sides or just a dab on each corner. If it is the bottom of several layers that are heavy or if it is going on textured Cuttlebug cardstock I may use more in the shape of a big X. Actually, I have never had a card fall apart with this adhesive. It really has holding power. I could probably use even less and still be fine.

Q-Where do you start in the creating process?

A-I used to start with the stamps and go from there. More recently I go from a piece of designer paper or ribbon frequently. This way I get the colors all coordinating. If I can find an element of design in the paper or ribbon, such as dots, stripes, etc. sometimes I aim to repeat that in the card also.

Q-Did you solve the problem of the Hybrid Ink beading up on your transparencies?

A-Not yet. I emailed the manufacturer but I have not had a response yet.

Q-Have you ever won blog candy?

A-Yes, in the last 5 months I have won 6 times. I have won stamps, ink, ribbon, envelopes, embellishments, and gel pens.

Q-Where do you buy your transparencies?

A-Kmart. I also get my CD cases there since they are the most inexpensive I have found.

Q-Did you get any Kitchen Sink Stamps?

A-Not yet, but those flowers are calling to me!!

Q-If you opened a cutting edge stamp store, what would it have?

A-All clear stamps and products for clear stamping!! I would also carry reinkers for every pad I carried. I would have lots of those 6 x 6 and 8 x 8 pads of variety cardstock. I would carry Ultra Clean cleaner. My store would have lots of ribbon, ATG guns and tape, and glitter in every form imaginable!

Q-How many cards per week do you estimate you make?

A-I would say 5-10 depending on the week.

Thanks so much for your info on the ATG--mine will arrive Friday, I can hardly wait. Have several cards that I am not putting together until I have it in my little hot hands.
Thanks again Mrs. C,
