Today I’m sharing five tools for cardmaking that are among my most favorite; the tools I use for pretty much every card I create.
I left my die cutting machines off the list of five, because those are high ticket items and of course, I rely on mine heavily but today is more about basic and mostly affordable tools. Here’s my video sharing the list:
Now onto some of the other tools I mentioned…we are putting these in the Honorable Mention category!
This stamp press is called The Debby Tool and for folks with wrist issues (raising hand and wrist here!) it has made a HUGE difference in my stamping.
These angled shader brushes are perfect for removing any embossing powder that DOES stick to your cardstock! They are firm and allow you to get into tight areas on your stamped image!
I would be remiss to not mention my two die cut machines:
I also have a Gemini Jr. which I used a ton off camera. It gives my wrists a break and cuts like a dream.
And that base it’s on? It’s a Rotating Design Board from Totally Tiffany and I LOVE that I don’t have to lift the machine anymore!
Check the recent Instagram post to see how cool this is.
And last but not least for my honorable mentions? My Tim Holtz Tonic Guillotine Trimmer!
I had been scrapbooking for YEARS and never knew about this trimmer. In fact, I hated trimmers. I always cut using an X-acto Knife and a metal ruler. Until I met this bad boy!
This trimmer is by far the best trimmer I’ve used. It cuts so beautifully and I use to to create all of my card bases.
I hope if you’re new to card making, this post is helpful!
See you back here with more crafty projects soon!
