I was lucky enough to be able to design the really cool and innovative Sparkle Dot Patterns 1 stamp set with Pretty Pink Posh, and this set is really taking my sequin game to the next level. To be honest, though, sequins have always been kind of a tricky thing for me. I have really unsteady hands, and when I’d add sequins to a card using any type of liquid glue, I’d usually end up accidentally bumping or nudging sequins out of place as I was working. But I recently found a product that’s been a total game changer for me : Micro Glue Dots! I love these teeny weeny glue dots, which fit perfectly inside the circles on the Sparkle Dot Pattern stamps. They provide an instant, strong bond, so once you adhere a sequin, it’s not going anywhere easily.
Since I started using glue dots to add sequins to cards, my shaky hands and I no longer have to worry about accidentally bumping or nudging sequins out of place, and I can add sequins a lot more quickly, too. For example, the star in the card above took me about half the time to make as it did when I used liquid glue.
