Foiling Technique #3: Stamps & Glue
January 28, 2015
Hey there! Today we're using glue on our stamps. A word of warning (because I made this mistake): Don't use rubber cement on the stamps! It won't come off your stamps. I tried a bunch of glues I had on hand and settled on Aleene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue. Note that there are glues specifically made for transferring, like Martha Stewart's Transfer Adhesive. I haven't tried it, but the reviews I read online are decent.
I used some new Balzer Designs stamps in the tutorial. Have I mentioned yet that I released six cling rubber stamp sets at CHA (the Craft and Hobby Association show)? Well, I did!!!!! And I'll share a lot more about them as soon as they're widely available. In the meantime, you can buy them directly from Impression Obsession (links to the two sets I used in the video are below).
Here's the technique mixing stamps and glue:
Please note: The transfer foil I used is from a company that no longer seems to be doing business. I have provided some alternative suggestions in the supply list above. Also the Purple Cows laminator that I used no longer seems to be manufactured. In the supply list above I've provided a link to an alternative hot laminator.
Thanks for stopping by!
