Stampers Magic Tape Tutorial

We added a new product to the shop today. Its this great new double stick ultra thin, sheer, clear double stick tape called Stampers Magic Tape. I have been using this tape for a while now and can personally vouch for how awesome it is! Our friend Amy from Amy's Magic turned me on to this over at the Hampton Virgina Stamp show. When she closed her business she was kind enough to pass on her source for the tape so we are now fortunate enough to be able to carry it! Its really cool because its so thin (five times thinner than red liner tape) and super sticky. Amy used it to add gold foil, gold leaf, glitters and embossing powders to her projects. Its so sheer that once you lay it down and add your powders you don't even see the tape. It looks like you used glue but without the mess. I use it for... well.. basically everything. Mostly for mounting my layers and for sticking on small detail complicated cut images to my card. It comes in various sizes. I use the 4" roll and just cut off what I need. There will be more product information on the company blog www.starvingartistamps.blogspot.com

I mention the tape here in the gallery because I am posting our first (of what I hope will be many) step by step tutorials. This one is about... getting full adhesive on intricately cut images:

STEP ONE:
STEP TWO

STEP THREE

STEP FIVE

ALL RESULTING IN ...
