ISS Release Week Firefly Chloe

Hello everyone, it's time for Instyle Stamps release week! Hooray! Even more great news, Glue Arts has graciously sponsored us and this whole week the DT and I will be showing you projects made with Glue Arts adhesives. We will also be giving away some goodies from Glue Arts over at the Instyle Stamps blog so be sure to check the blog this week! Now on with the project! Today ISS is showing you Firefly Chloe! Isn't she a cutie? She will be in the store this Friday. The grass, trees and moon were cut with the cricut and are from Plantin Schoolbook. I added glitter to the moon and grass and the sentiment is from a MS wedding set. Thanks for stopping by! Read on for my 1st experience with my Glue Glider Pro. :)

I used the GlueGlider Pro as my main adhesive. I have to say I had never used the GGP before and was a bit scared to use it. At first I was a bit hesitant to try it out, but I thought what the heck let's try something new. :) I found out that I prefer small strips of adhesive (instead of a continuous line) and really like the green roller which lets me chose how much adhesive to use. I also found out the hard way that the perma tac is unbelievably permanent, so I had to be sure to place my things the right way the first time or I was out of luck. Conclusion: Overall I thought the Glue Glider Pro was easy to use once I got the hang of it (like maybe after 5-10 applications) and the adhesive was very effective.

Image: Firefly Chloe by Instyle Stamps
Adhesive: Glue Glider Pro by Glue Arts (perma-tac)
Paper: DCWV Fall glitter pack
Coloring: Copics, Prisma markers/pencils

Hahahaha! I mess up my glider all the time - and that permanent adhesive means business, doesn't it? This is a great card :)

This stamp is so wonderful. Reminds me of nights on my grandparents ranch when I was little. We loved chasing fireflies but was never able to catch one! I love my glue glider and you are right! this glue really sticks. I am so glad I found it as I ship many, many cards through the Air Force base nearby to our troops and know the other glues I used would not hold up to the heat. Thanks!
