Stamping On Cork
I've been having fun playing with a DCWV cork stack I picked up at Michaels. It's easy and fun to stamp on cork -- if you've got the Perfect Crafting Pouch. Just treat your cork by tapping the pouch over the surface before stamping. The powder gives you a crisp, quick drying image. You can then use the Perfect Cleaning Cloth to remove any remaining powder from your cork piece.
Once I'd stamped my piece, it was fast and easy to cut around the stamped image to use in my project. And the best way to put it all together was with the Best Glue Ever - cork, buttons, paper and even vellum. You can't tell that I used a tiny "L" of glue in each corner of the vellum to adhere it to the paper. It dries clear, even on vellum.
And here's a bonus tip for stretching your supplies. I only bought one sheet of this patterned vellum from Studio Calico and didn't want to use it up on only one project. Before adhering my paper grouping I placed it onto the vellum and lightly marked the edges. I then cut slightly inside those marks with my paper trimmer. Now I can use the large interior section for something else!
