Pun intended! After my failure with the glue on cardboard stamps, I went to the internet to look for a better way. I found lots of good information and there are so many interesting videos out there!
I grabbed onto the parts that appealed to me and this is what I’m trying.
For my first try, I thought I’d make a leaf…but I placed a drawing underneath the silicon sheet and traced over it with the glue gun.
Not an exact copy, because I thought ahead enough to make sure all the parts connected. And that’s because I took a couple hours and went to a thread lace class and everything has to be connected or the leaves fall apart!!!
So, here’s the glue leaf.
And then I tried a glue tree…
And a little sylized glue tree…
The glue has to cool before you take it off the silicon sheet, so I have to walk away for a bit…and maybe buy some more glue sticks! I’ll be ready to see how these work as both stamps and stencils after the hubby and I go out to lunch with friends.
Must always remember to mix the fun with the work…oh, wait–it’s so very hard for me to tell the difference!!!
