Did You Know continues.....

A few more to add to your list of Did you Know....

Turn your paper not your scissors when cutting images for clean and intricate cuts.

Hand sanitizer works great to remove inks like Stazon if you don't have Stazon Ink Cleaner on hand. Just remember hand sanitizers have alcohol in it so wash your stamps well after removing the ink and hand sanitizer. Works great in a pinch, works on rubber and acrylic.

To mount rubber stamps that aren't mounted on wood to an acrylic block, put a bit of glue stick glue on the back of the stamp and place on your  block. Stamp stays put and after you are done just wash the block and stamps off with a bit of soapy water.

Don't have the coloured gems you need for your projects but have lots of white pearls or clear gems? Add a tiny drop of alcohol ink to the pearl  or gem to match your colour themes. I add a drop to a q-tip then rub on the gem, they still glisten and have an iridescent effect, add to the center of your flowers or an embellishment.

Stay tuned for some recent creations and tomorrow I will be showing my next Colour of Summer project featuring RED.
Have a very creative day.


  1. Some good tips again! Have a goo day, hugs, Valerie

  2. Thanks for the tips! Looking forward to seeing your reds.

  3. Great ideas thanks for sharing.

  4. Lesley, your digital creations are awesome! Go, Digi Monster:)! I am going to check out the Gimp program. I have never heard of this before. I have a very hard time cutting out things. If it is quite tedious, it really makes my Repetitive Stress Injury issues flare up again. So I'm eager to see if Gimp is more user friendly:)
