It’s Technique Tuesday!  This is not so much of a technique as it is a reminder that ink looks different on different papers.  Don’t be afraid to stamp on glimmer paper, foil paper, or anything else.

If you have questions on which kind of ink to use for which kind of paper please contact me.

Sometimes backwards is the right way.

I was the kid that walked to school backwards just because I could.  And my Mom was saying the whole time “please turn around so you don’t trip and fall”.  Well, that was the first time.  By the end of the treck she was telling me somewhat forcefully to “walk right”.  Well, I didn’t die, trip, or even break a bone.  Now I am not saying to defy Mom, but I am saying that sometimes backwards is the correct way.

In the case of our glimmer papers backwards or upside down should be your only way.  Flip that shiny side down and then trim.  The glimmer (or glitter for some) dulls your blade on your trimmer much quicker than other cardstock.  (While I appreciate you ordering we don’t need to hurry the process.)  So flip it over next time.
