Boost Your Weekly Deals With These Tips

Organizational Tip

  • The Alpha Rotary Stamp is the perfect addition to your craft room - use it to stamp custom labels to identify your card stock, sorting embellishments, etc. Just dial in the name and stamp it on a return address label, then stick it right where you want it!

Thinlits Tips

  • When using thinlets with the big shot remember that each Big Shot may be calibrated differently. You may need to add a shim of cardstock or chipboard to get your thinlit to cut perfectly. Always try it WITHOUT the shim first to prevent damaging your Big Shot and your thinlits. 
  • Thinlits with intricate designs may have small pieces stuck. To prevent this you can place a piece of waxed paper on top of your cutting material and also on top of the thinlit. Run through as usual, the waxed paper will help the cardstock to release more easily.

Embossing Folder Tip

  • Use your embossing folder like a letter press by inking one side of the embossing folder with a brayer, place your card stock into the folder, close and roll over it with a standard rolling pin, or for a double embossed and inked look, run it through your big shot.  
  • Remember to only used water based inks such as Stampin' Up! Classic Ink pads and never use permanent inks.  Clean promptly to prevent staining.

Glimmer Paper Tip

  • Gold glimmer paper pairs well with Soft Suede card stock for a subtle look.
  • Before punching glimmer paper, try sharpening your punches with a folded up piece of foil. The sharper the punch the easier it will cut.
