HI Stephanie! Thank you for your always kind comments! You can find my instagram page here: http://www.instagram.com/bets_v/ or you can always click on the little Instagram icon (the little camera) in the upper right corner of the header at the top of my blog. Enjoy!! :-)
Net - I did not re-use my excess powder. It's very fine and would be pretty difficult to get back into the package, although if you put them in something different than the small ziplock bags they come in you might be able to do it. I just tried not to use too much excess - a little of these goes a long way! There's just a small amount in each packet, but I can't imagine how long it would take to use up a color completely when using this way with stamping.
Karen - I have been heat setting my images before I brush off the excess powder. You probably wouldn't have to, but I find I get better coverage with the powders if I heat set them. Waiting a bit for the glue to dry completely would probably have the same effect, but I'm impatient, so I bring out the heat gun. :-)
Steph - thank you so much for all of your kind words - you're always such an encouragement!! :-)
Colleen - the Salt Air: Flora dies are open, with the exception of the taller, more delicate grass, and the chunkier coral as those both has interior cut-outs, therefore the die must be solid. As for the Fauna set, they are all open dies. I hope that answers your question!
Hi Kimberly! Yes, the Xyron coats the whole back with a layer or adhesive -- it makes it like a sticker.
I did a short video here: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bi68bbEhisV/?taken-by=bets_v
I'm not familiar enough with Pearl Ex powders to comment on them. I don't believe the glue pad is harmful to your stamps, but I do clean my stamps when I'm finished stamping with it.

If you use a glue pad it shouldn’t rub off once you give it a good rub-over (I just used a paper towel). I did find that I got more vibrant colors (better adhesion) if I heated the stamped image with a heat gun before rubbing off the excess powder. I think it just helps to set the glue and provide maximum coverage. Once dry, mine does not seem to be giving off at all. These are similar to perfect pearls, but the powders I used do not have a binding agent, I believe perfect pearls do, but I haven’t experimented enough with the perfect pearls to comment on ways they might be different.
Hi Kathy! This is not a limited edition kit, so yes...it will be restocked, hopefully soon! Thanks for your interest in this. :-)
