1. Waffle Flower Crafts Blending Brushes

Blending brushes are a blending tool that allows you to pick ink up onto the bristles and apply it to your project using a gentle swirling motion. You can apply a soft touch of color around the edges of a project, fully color an area, combine multiple colors and blend them together. There are also lots of fun techniques you can do with them. You can also use them with fun techniques. I personally love using these type of brushes with stencils as they allow the ink to get into the corners of the stencil and give you clean crisp edges.

The Waffle Flower Crafts Blending Brushes package includes 10 blending brushes made from high quality, fine bristles and they work well with a variety of mixed media products including liquids and powders. The bristles are white which makes it easier to see how much media is being applied. Excess ink can be wiped off on clean paper or a lint-free cloth in between uses or the brushes can be cleaned with mild soap under running water. 

2. Scor Pal 12x12 Scoring Board

The 12" x 12" Scor-Pal Eighths Measuring and Scoring Board by Scor-Pal is a must have for cardmakers who make their own card bases. It allow you to score lines and create crisp, accurate folds every time with it's 1/8" grooves. I've been using mine for years and use it on every card I create when it comes time to create my card base.

4. Ranger Ink Simon Hurley Stamping Foam

The Ranger Ink Simon Hurley Stamping Foam is a simple yet intriguing little tool that is sure to bring you endless hours of crafty card making fun.  To use it, you simply heat it with a heat tool, press it into a textured impression or pattern such as embossing folders, stamps, dies and household item.

5. MISTI - Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented

I've had a MISTI for years now and the day I started using it I was hooked. I had always struggled with getting a good stamped image and this tool changed all of that. It actually made me fall in love with stamping and cardmaking!

Everyone wants to stamp perfectly and the New MISTI stamping tool is the Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented for that purpose!

You can use the MISTI system for repeated stamp positioning, lining up die cuts and stamps, registration of layered stamps, etc. The included bar magnet help to hold your cardstock or paper in place and the included positioning grid paper makes it easy for you to align your designs before you stamp.

My favorite thing about the MISTI is that you can repeatedly stamp in the exact same location. Which mean that if you stamp a bad image, all you have to do to fix it, is re-ink your stamp and make another impression!  It's that easy and you no longer have to be stressed out about wasting paper or ruining your card.

As someone who has a bit of arthritis in my hands, this tool is super helpful to decrease the stress on my joints.  Even if you don't have any issues like that, it is also a must have because it can target your stamp's many intricate grooves with just a simple swipe of pressure. It is an absolute must-have for stampers everywhere.
