I am a bit excited to share with you today another trick I learnt at on stage using Stampin Up’s Fine Tip Glue Pen! In my last post I mentioned that it dries faster than dimensional magic, but did you know it can be used like dimensional magic! Neither did I! So, on my Stamp It Sunday Facebook Live Video this week, I set about to show you how it was done!
I absolutely love the shimmery christmas bauble effect – if I do say so myself!
How cute are the mice out of that set! I held off getting it for a while – but with the brilliant discount until the end of November I just couldn’t resist any longer! And they are super simple to colour with a little bit of ink and an aqua painter!
Here’s a closer look at that effect!
Isn’t it pretty! And it doesn’t dry sticky AT ALL! I can see so many new projects happening with this now I have had a play – so be warned – you may see a few more tips and tricks with the Fine Tip Glue Pen in the future!

Do you remember this card that I painstakingly made ??? You can see all about it Here.
Well I absolutely adored that card, so when it came to writing out all my Christmas Cards this year to hand out – well – lets just say that I couldn’t possibly part with this card! It was just too special, too gorgeous and too much work to part with. Still, I wasn’t entirely sure what I was going to do with it!
Then came along my December Daily album where the front needed some special adorning for Christmas. I was stuck this year as to what to decorate it with. I had thought of using the ornaments soon many times – but I wasn’t sure how to quite do it.
Then yesterday it came to me whilst staring at my card….. I wanted that ornament on my album – however I really didn’t want to spend hours making another one – so I set to work using this one without to much fuss at all.
Here’s what I created……
I simply trimmed my card down and used our new ‘Number of Years’ dies with our red foil to create the year. A glittered star and gold cording trim and I was done!!!! And isn’t it wonderful that the ornaments have carried forward into the Occasions Catalogue!
I hope you like it!
Now to complete the pages……………. :-/
Well Christmas is not very far away now. I truly hope you have most of your Christmas cards done. But if not, this is a super quick card that we made at a stamp a stack class. This card is great to get a whole heap done and sent!
Using Garden Green and Soft Sky, this is my take on the card in the 2015 Holiday Catalogue. Instead of using our snowflake embellishments, I punched a star from gold foil sheets and used the stamping off technique for the trees, making sure to alter the height of the trees.
It’s a bit hard to tell in the photo, but i then touched the 2 way glue pen to various points on the tree and sprinkled with dazzling diamonds glitter to give the look of snow.
Simple, quick and effective!
Happy Stamping 🙂
I have loved the sleigh ride edgelits since I first saw them. They are so versatile and add depth and scenes to any card easily and quickly.
Here is one of my favourite cards I created this year using the edgelits. It’s simple, but pops off the page. I cannot remember where I saw someone layer back behind the sleigh, but it makes such a difference to the depth of white on white. Teamed with silver glimmer paper and silver glitter – it turned out just gorgeous. We made these quite a while ago in a special christmas class and the ladies loved them, albeit having a little trouble removing the paper from the edgelits.
My tip – place baking paper between the cardstock and the edgeless to help it slip out more easily. And even though they look delicate – you can still give them a strong pull to remove them from the edgelit without damaging them.
I even made a smaller version for a money card – perfect for Christmas!
I hope you like them 🙂
