I only uses my HP ink Jet as a scanner and not for printing.

I love my HP Color Laser Jet- uses toner. In the long run laser toner is a better option.  Too expensive to run the ink jet PhotoSmart Plus by HP.

Bonnie - If you are looking for an inkjet my hubby uses an Epsom 3000 and loves it. He does a lot of photography and this printer gives great colour. If you want a good laser printer then mine is an HP laser jet pro 500 color MFP.  It  is more for an office than a home and is very robust and professional. It does have a larger footprint and is heavy so needs a good place for it to rest. Hubby has had his printer for a couple of years now and he likes it. Mine is only a year old and based on how it is used is likely to last me for the next 10 years.

Well, now it appears that my color printer is acting up. It has got to be at least 5 years old or more, so a new one is not unconscionable. Anyone have a favorite they can recommend?

Oh Diana you have been a busy gal. That is wonderful that Karen could get you just the tip you needed. Will have to try that. Forceps are quickly becoming my best bud. I had them on hand so never bought tweezers and I do like that they keep together until I release them instead of having to squeeze to keep things in hand. Now off to check your gallery.

Judy, I tried Karen Knutgen’s glue way this morning and did 32 of them in about an hour and a half! Woohoo! Was messy! But it worked and got easier as it went along. So if you have several to do, I would recommend.

I used Tombow glue on my craft pad. Would put on something disposable in the future- took me forever to clean up! Maybe aluminum foil or Saran Wrap.

Mist as glue occasionally gets too thick.

Keep a tub of soapy water and rag to clean tweezers and fingers close by.

Make sure all die cut are all ready! Ask me how I know this! Mine weren’t! Haha!

Don’t press into glue, just lay it down, pick up with tweezers, lay on shadow piece, position and press with a damp baby wipe, etc. If you press into glue you can’t get up!

I posted a couple of pictures in my gallery as I can’t figure out how to post on my iPad! Maybe someday! Maybe not!

I did 16 of mine, cleaned up then did the rest. Got to messy!

I have been reading the latest discussion about the intricate die cuts and attaching them onto cards.  I use Sizzix Adhesive Sheets (https://www.amazon.com/Sizzix-Adhesive-Sheets-6-Inch-Pack/dp/B005HY...)

I purchase mine at Hobby Lobby with the 40% off coupon. Anyway, I place them on my cardstock before running through my Big Shot.  It sure makes placing that die cut on my card easier.  Another idea is to use the Scor-tape and again, place it on your paper before cutting.  If you use the roller, like Bonnie is suggesting, I would place it on the Ranger Craft Mat as you can glue on it and it comes right off.  Of course, with scrap paper, you can toss it away.  Just a few thoughts.

Diana, with the dry temperature and getting items to stick to your card, Kristine Werner suggests using the Tombow Extreme Adhesive, which is the same adhesive as SU Fast Fuse.  It seems that people are using the Fast Fuse a lot with the glitter paper, like you are finding fussy, so you could try the Tombow Extreme and it might work.  I haven't used it, as I grab my scor-tape if I am having issues with something sticking and have not thought ahead.

Judy, I have had the best luck for attaching detailed cutouts with Scotch double sided adhesive roller. It has just the right amount of dots. If I put the cutout wrong side up on scrape paper, then roller adhesive on the back of the words. I can then pick up the piece and place it with minimal dots showing. It is at Amazon for under $5: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007XAAE6K/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?.... Sometimes it is even under 3 and I get a bunch in.

As for the sponging, I have tried the make up sponges with very limited success and makeup brushes not much better.

Diana if you have a Target near you, look for the glitter wrapping paper. Gina mentioned it last year. I picked up a roll last year after Christmas. I looked for it Tuesday night, but they didn't have much Christmas stuff out yet. By then Halloween was practically over, and they should have had Christmas out. I will check back later. It is wrapping paper, but is awesome as mats on cards. The nice thing is, it has 1" marks on the back like Contac paper, so it's easy to cut it fairly straight. I will try Karen's tip the next time I use one of the word dies.

Judy, I grew up in Illinois and then lived in Colorado for 40+ years - beautiful - but the weather could change every 10 minutes!

Karen sent me a message said to spread glue on a mat and lay the die cut in it, then place it on the backing. I die cut most of mine from some SU glitter paper I had - they are beautiful but was hard to cut - had to use shims and still didn’t want to cut well. Will not try it again! Will use what I have left as background pieces on cards. Will try with some of the various glues I have tomorrow and let you know. Hugs!
