It's dye ink so I doubt it - I'd guess "water resistant" at best. Tsukineko don't list any technical info about its water resistant properties and I haven't sloshed enough water around near the couple of colours I have to be able to say from experience!

Re: Your fav stamp pad

Tough question! Like others, I think the answer is really "depends what I'm doing". I dislike the smell of Momento so if using Copics I tend to go for one of the Adirondack dye inks (either Espresso or Pitch Black, usually). Love my Distress inks though, great for stamping, sponging, water...

Re: Nestabilities

I think with the exchange rate as it is, the savings from the US are now marginal by the time you factor in the shipping. When we were at $2 to the pound it was definitely cheaper to buy from the States but the pound has faded fast since then!

I've also bought from Once Upon a Stamp - good service.

Re: Die cutting machines

Cuttlebug are starting to do some folders that are 5 x 7 - half of the Asian bundle they're releasing for CHA this month are that size so presumably they have more larger ones planned, too. The ones they've done up to now are American A2 which is basically 4.25 x 5.5 (although they are actually a ta...

Re: cutting circles

I am always adding to my list new designs for clock faces for printing. I was after suitable, perhaps funny, cartoon type pictures to use on the clock face of occupations, I found one site but the guy wanted tooooooo much money. If anyone has any ideas, or has artwork which they feel may be helpful...

Re: Drills

I can see Nicola's point about the design (non gun shaped) maybe meaning its hard to get straight holes If getting a really straight hole is a big issue for you, you can get a drill stand to fit a Dremel. Do you remember the drills in the woodwork and metalwork rooms at school? You pulled a handle ...

Re: Drills

I think you probably want a "mini" drill of the Dremel type if you're going to be working with domino sized objects - you'll have terrible trouble seeing what you're doing with a bigger one, I reckon. Might be worth checking out model shops as well as the kind of places Nigel mentioned (in...

You mention Joanne/Angelnorth, not sure who they are, quite new on here, but will look out for them, who knows they may know a technique which could help.

Re: cutting circles

I found that using either a glass/ceramic tile made a huge difference as in it made it easier for the blade to glide over a smooth surface rather than using something like a self-heal cutting mat. Yep - I have a cheap glass work top protector (from Poundstretcher) as a cutting board on my craft tab...

Re: cutting circles

I have used the Coluzzle system before and that works well, I have an oval. If you browse you tube I bet there is a video how it works. It might be a bit hit and miss on whether any of the templates would be the right size - sounds like Phil is after a very specific diameter on this one. Be interes...

Re: cutting circles

Hi Phil - welcome! You might want to look at something as basic as the Fiskars circle cutter - it will only cost you a few quid to try in any case (or send me some of the paper you need cutting and I'll try it out for you to make sure it goes through). You can cut any size circle with this thing. If...

Re: CBC Crew Challenge - Tooled Up - CBCC107

Thanks for the info Susan, will have to look out for those! I meant to say - if anybody fancies playing with the aluminium tape it's really cheap! I got a 10m roll from my local pound shop and it's almost 5cm wide so a good enough size to play with. I laid it over chipboard letters and then "ta...

Ingenious! Fab take on the theme and your cogs have come out looking really realistic - you could have fibbed and we'd have believed you :lol: Thanks for playing along!

What dies did you use? They look like they might be handy for masculine stuff!
