The basics are really the stamps, paper, and ink, but you will want to turn those basics into cards and other projects. Stampin’ Up! carries everything from excellent snips, punches, the Big Shot die cutting machine, to punch boards that cut and score envelopes and bags.
I know you probably have scissors. I thought one pair of scissors is just like another until I tried these. I can cut detailed images much easier with these sharp, pointed snips. Definitely worth the price! Now I have these snips in my Basic Tool Box that I take to craft away from home so I don’t have to settle for cutting with other scissors.
Cutting and Scoring Card Bases and Layers
I didn’t spot a video just about the Simply Scored tool, but here is one showing a project that can be made with it. And you’ll find lots of projects that I’ve posted that I’ve relied on the Simply Scored tool.
This video was published in 2010 when the “new style” punches first came out. Many of the punches shown have been retired, but it shows basic information about how to use this style of punch.
Stampin’ Cut and Emboss
Stampin’ Up! used to sell a machine that used dies and embossing folders. Another machine is on the way, but it is not yet available. In the meantime, dies and embossing folders are still available. They can be used on any machine you already have. We are all looking forward to what Stampin’ Up! will offer in the future. It is expected to be a high-quality tool.
