When it comes to a WOW product, I can’t think of a better bang-for-your-buck than the Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF – you don’t think I’m typing all that every time now, do you??). For just $7.95 – well, plus the cost of a Big Shot, but you needed that anyway – you can take any project from Ho, Hum to Whoo Hoo! in a matter of moments! The Honeycomb TIEF from the Spring catalog is one of my current favorites, and the Very Good News is that we will see it in the 2013-2014 catalog as well.
There is a trick, my dears.
Run your DSP through the Honeycomb TIEF. Then take your paper snips and go zigety zagety down the line of combs, in that little trough. You’ll end up with a row of hexagons with very little effort. Now snip off what you need and whoop-dee-doo you are done! What’s more, those hexagons just scoot right into their spots on the honeycomb panel. No fuss, no muss.
- You’re Amazing stamp set
- Very Vanilla and Midnight Muse card stock
- Print Poetry DSP pack (gone with the end of the Spring catalog!)
- Summer Starfruit FFIP
- Marina Mist Stampin’ Write marker
- Blender pen
- Apothecary Accents Framelits and the Big Shot
- Brights brads (gonna retire!)
- Stampin’ Dimensionals (Had better not retire, never ever ever!!!)
You could do this with any DSP you have – even scraps – and you could do it for Moms and Dads, Brides and Grads and Birthdays and Babies and – well, anything!
Go on, go and make a card.
