Beautiful Stamp (26 July 2022)
When I first got this I was disappointed that the butterflies are completely solid (I guess I wasn't paying attention when I ordered it) but making good on an otherwise silly mistake, I stamped it on yellow card with a light grey ink and colored them with colored pencils in various pastel shades. I then cut it down to make a bookmark for my butterfly-loving, bookworm granddaughter. I laminated it, punched a hole in the top and tied bakers twine in colors that match the butterflies through the hole. It was darling and she loved it!
The stamp is very thick and sturdy for a clear stamp, which I love! I have so many flimsy stamps that leave a lot to be desired in their use, but these are great. I love the Creative Expression- Woodware stamps for this reason. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and plan to use this frequently.
All things PINK! (19 February 2021)
I've never ordered a complete bundled set of distress ink products before. I have all the distress inks and distress oxide inks, and love them, but have always wished for a "true"pink color. Kitsch Flamingo is that perfect color of pink! I just received them two days ago and I've already played with the ink pads and the spray ink (why haven't I tried these before?!!). This is my new favorite color and I'm sure it will be highlighted in tons of my cards! I can't wait to try the rest of the bundle!
WOW! A real game changer! (20 November 2020)
This is the best thing since the invention of the desktop die cutter! So easy to use, doesn't warp, smooth cutting, easy clean-up, and QUIET (yay!)
The cutting mat is as thick as a regular cutting plate but it's so much easier to use. I have a Sizzix Big Shot and this mat makes it easier to slide through and cut the sandwich. Nearly all the small pieces are left on the mat, making cleanup a breeze.
Using the mat also saves your acrylic cutting plates because it has just enough give that the top acrylic plate doesn't warp.
After cutting close to 50 cuts, the mat had a slight curve that I heated with my heat gun until quite warm them placed a heavy box on top. Once it cooled, it was completely flat and ready to go. I also found out that if you clean the surface with a baby wipe after use that it removes all the little bits of paper cut into the mat!
Overall, I'm tickled pink with this mat and will never go back to using a bottom acrylic cutting plate again. Love, love, love this!
I love all these toner card fronts! (25 May 2020)
I belong to a card group and the theme recently was Red, White and Blue but non-patriotic. I used this card front for my cards. Red and blue flowers with the white background. Then foiled with either red or blue. They turned out amazing! This is my new "flavor of the month" card making activity! I bought several of the designs and can't wait to play with all of them!
The perfect pen for adding that bling to....well, EVERYTHING! (11 March 2020)
I've been a little hesitant buying a glitter pen because I was afraid it would be like the metallic pens that leak all over when you use them. Let me tell you, that was not the case with this pen!
It came well packaged with a ring collar so that the pen couldn't be depressed and ooze out during shipping. The cap fits very tight, so tight in fact I had a tough time taking it off the first time but even after consistent use the cap still seats tightly.
I got the clear pen and it's great for adding the perfect amount of bling to my cards! Now that I know these are amazing pens I'll be buying more!
The Name Says it All! (06 February 2020)
I've always been a fan of the domed fingertip daubers for inking card edges and backgrounds. Then I found the large domed daubers and loved them! Then I saw these brushes and had to try them. Needless to say the name says it all! These truly are life changing! I love that there are 10 different sizes for literally everything you could think of. My favorites are the second largest oval and the largest of the narrow brushes. I've used them to ink edges, create backgrounds and to ink stencils. I still haven't quite gotten the hang of the stencils but I'm having fun playing with them! The bristles are compact and soft, provide both a soft or a vibrant color, yet can be cleaned easily by rubbing them on a paper towel until the color is gone. There are no streaks from the edges of the brushes. I think these are my new go-to item for applying ink. I still love my daubers but I really like having these in my card-making arsenal!
Cute little, itty, bitty candy swirls (06 February 2020)
I got these to make shaker cards for next Christmas. I haven't used them yet but I really love how small and cute they are! The detail is impressive and I haven't found one yet that isn't perfect. I can hardly wait for July to start my Christmas cards!
Best idea EVER! (02 October 2019)
I have all the Ranger Distress Oxide ink pads and had to dig through a tote bin in order to find what I was looking for. One day I got to the point of frustration and went searching on my favorite scrapbook website (yes, it's Scrapbook.com) for some kind of caddy or shelving to hold my ink pads. I love that the system has these optional inserts you can snap into the back of each cubby so the ink pads don't get lost in the bigger slotted areas. They are perfect for the square ink pads!
Tremendous product in a itty-bitty working space (02 October 2019)
I have all the Ranger Distress Oxide ink pads and had to dig through a tote bin in order to find what I was looking for. One day I got to the point of frustration and went searching on my favorite scrapbook website (yes, it's Scrapbook.com) for some kind of caddy or shelving to hold my ink pads. I love that this system has the optional inserts you can snap into the back of each cubby so my ink pads don't get lost in the bigger slotted areas. My desk space is pretty small but I have lots of empty wall space in my craft area so I opted to mount them on the wall next to my desk. Each unit has holes in the back to facilitate hanging. Mind you, I'm not handy but even I could figure out how to hang them, so that tells you how easy it is. Just remember that you do need something to anchor the screws into the drywall. I opted to put a 1X4 wooden plank on the wall so I could anchor into the studs since I was hanging 3 units side by side. They look beautiful, even if they are black. Overall, I'm extremely happy with this product and the ease of hanging them!
Love the concept but the felt backing needs a redesign (02 October 2019)
I love the concept of these daubers and they are amazing to work with. They create beautiful backgrounds without leaving any lines. The only thing I don't like about them is that when I tried to remove them from the wooden handle, 2 of the 3 I was using pulled off at the foam cushion instead of at the felt where it attaches to the Velcro.
I was very disappointed with the craftsmanship of the assembly of these foam applicators and I think they need to be redesigned to fix the separation issue.
Having said that, I still love them and will continue to use them. I'm having a blast creating beautiful Fall background papers with my Distress Oxides, watercolor paper and these fantastic applicators.
Cute little stamp set (16 September 2019)
At first I thought these stamps were too small to really do anything with but once I started playing with them I came to love them! I have the die set that goes with them and together I've made some cute little cards. I love Lawn Fawn stamps and dies and Scrapbook.com is the only place I get them from because the prices are so great!
Who doesn't like a little crazy? (13 August 2018)
Love these crazy birds! I've had so much fun playing with these stamps. I love that they are cling and I can place them exactly where I want them on my cards. The birds all have their own unique personality and I'm having a hard time not naming each one of them!
So fun and goes perfectly with the stamps (13 August 2018)
These are the perfect companion to the Crazy Things rubber stamps. Very easy to use, Although I do tape them to my paper to prevent shifting when running them through the die cut machine. No more trying to cut the stamped images with tiny scissors!
Love these accessories (13 August 2018)
I love that these accessories go with the Bird, Cat and Dog Crazy stamp sets. They come pre-cut, are easy to use, leave crisp lines when stamping the image and are ridiculously cute!
Love this stuff! (31 July 2018)
I have run out of room to store all my rubber stamps and am converting my wood mounted stamps to cling stamps. This is the perfect material to accomplish that task. It's lightweight yet has a strong adhesive to keep the rubber secure. The cling side is smooth and sticks well to the acrylic blocks. I store them in page protecters in 3-ring binders. I love this stuff!
