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. :-)
Hi Mary! Sorry youre still having trouble. So, from your comment Im wondering -- are you visiting the new blog or the old one? Nicholes farewell was the last post on the old blog (Nicholes) that weve used for years for all of the release posts, which is here: http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/ . All of the posts since then, including all of this months release posts, are now on a brand NEW blog, which is here: https://blog.papertreyink.com/ The emails you referenced -- are you talking about receiving the blog posts via email? If so, you arent receiving those yet because the subscription service is not functioning quite yet. They are working on it and it should be up very soon. When it is, all of the subscribers to the old blog will be transferred to the new one, and you should begin receiving the posts via email. Hopefully we can get it sorted out for you!

Thanks, Mary - I will pass this info along as well. We did a little survey of the team, though, and no one else seems to be getting this message. Can I suggest clearing your cookies and browser history?
Hey Becky! Yes, there will be a way to subscribe to the blog, they are working on it. In fact, if you were subscribed to the old blog it looks like your subscription will be automatically transferred over to the new one, its just taking them a bit of time to get it all set up. I think it will be happening very soon, though (within a day or two)!
Hi Mary - Ive forwarded your message to the people handling the blog. I do not get that message, so Im not sure whats going on, but Ive alerted the proper people and if theres something that needs to be done, it should get taken care of. Thank you!
Yes, they should work - as long as theyre the kind that come apart into two halves. They come in various sizes -- these use the 3 ornaments.
Yes - I used a gray Copic for the lightbulb details. :-) Thanks for your kind comments, Steph.
Yes! Its shown assembled on the graphic on the website, but each different color is a different stamp.
The tree on the Jingle card has three stamps - the triangle portion, the trunk, and the little dot details. Is that what you were wondering about?
Yes! The whole set has a brushstroke effect to the images. ;-)
Sure, Jessica! The overall size of all of the rectangles is 3-1/2 wide and 4-3/4 high. The opening/frame sizes are 1, 3/4, and 1/2. I hope that helps!
