Stamps by me samples

Good evening, hope everyone is well and safe. There have been some terrible things happening around the world recently. We all need to be thankful for what we have, some people have been severely affected by the hurricanes & earthquakes. My heart goes out to everyone.
Today I'm sharing some samples I made for my DT at stamps by me limited. Toni has come up with some beautiful stamps and dies yet again........




Make sure you tune into Create and craft this Friday to see the new release. The rest of the DT have made some inspirational things and I'm in awe of them. I turned the splat die into little characters for a children's card !
Have a great week, thanks for stopping by.

Ultra fine tip glue applicators

Hello and good evening ! Today's post is all about a fabulous product from Stix2 anything. I was so lucky to receive a pack of the new ultra fine nib and bottle 3 pack complete with pins. I've got to say I'm so impressed.
This is what they look like...


I filled one of my bottles with stix2 PVA glue....
Since then I've been using it to glue all kinds of small and tricky things...





The glue has been in my bottle for almost a month it hasn't dried up and the pin hasn't gone  rusty either. It really is a fab product. 
Why have I never used it before, it's perfect for tricky die cuts also.
Right must dash 
Take care & thanks for looking
