Miscellaneous

Hello again. I have received some questions about different products I've mentioned, so thought I'd take a picture of a couple of the items. (Exclude the stamp...it was in place to keep the stuff from rolling all over the mat while I took a picture!) The snow writer that I use on some cards is on the left. Michael's has this product, also available online.  Next the Eclipse tape. The Twins pack holds 2 rolls, in different widths. As you can see, this one is not opened. I use the larger size roll next to it when I mask images to airbrush, etc. I've seen the Twin pack on websites, but apparently the larger tube is out of stock at all the websites where I would place orders. The tube of Kiss-off is a very good stamp cleaning product for any stamp that is really very dirty, and you just can't get it cleaned with anything else you try. It's like a glue-tube consistency. You rub it over the stamp. Then I take a stiff toothbrush - actually I bought one of the denture cleaning brushes because it's stiffer than any toothbrush I could find, yet doesn't damage the rubber. I wet the brush, rub it over the kiss-off I've just smudged over the stamp. Works up a lather of sorts. Then I wipe with a non-alcohol baby wipe or with an old washcloth that has been dampened fairly well. I repeat this process until I get the stamp as clean as I can, being sure to dry it well in between. This product was recommended to me by some of the 'old-time' stampers that I know. I get it locally, but I'm sure lots of the online stamping sites would have it also. On another note: Prayers being sent up for all those who were in the path of Storm Sandy. The tv is showing such devastation to so many people in such a large area. If you can, enjoy your day, and as always, thanks for visiting today.

Hi Mary

Always good to see what our crafty friends use in their creative moments.

I would love a stroll around Michaels. It sounds a wonderful place.

Have a good weekend.

Pretty cool items here Mary! I am liking them all, I did see the thin tape to make masks with the the stamping expo but that one was really expensive but you did get a lot. Would have been way to much for me though as I don't stamp a ton. Thanks for sharing these things with us Mary! You are such a sweetheart!
