Grab a cup of coffee or tea, sit back and relax, this is going to be a looooong post. We received some Tim Holtz Alterations Texture Fades (fancy name for embossing folders) as well as the Hero Arts and Sizzix dies and folders. First, here are the Tim Holtz folders. There are some really cool ones for Christmas and Halloween/Fall!
Now on to the Hero Arts and Sizzix. These are too cool! The dies and stamps come together in the same package and the dies cut the image really closely. The are similar to the Spellbinders dies but the cutting edge is on the inside edge of the die, which makes placement over your stamped image much easier.
Just image the possibilities! In fact, here are a few possibilities from the Hero Arts website.
Now for the embossing folder and stamp combinations. You can see the results of a few of these in the cards above. They are so easy to use! You stamp the image first, slide the stamped image into the clear embossing folder, lining it up with the design on the folder, and run it through your Cuttlebug or Big Shot. Done! Check out these gorgeous designs:
See? I told you they were cool! Don’t dilly dally, stop in soon before they are all gone.
