Favorite Cardmaking Tools

UPDATE:  I had to make an update to this page because my absolute FAVORITE card-making tool thus far is the MISTI and it came out just recently.

These are the tools I use most often and have come to appreciate.  This list is not in any specific order.  I don’t have any deals with any vendors or stores to endorse any of these products.  I mention Michael’s Arts & Crafts because that’s where I purchased a lot of these products and that was solely because they have great coupons!!

 1.  ATG (ADVANCED TAPE GLIDER) – Sold at Michael’s Arts & Craft stores and you can use a coupon! 🙂





 6.  DIES (Spellbinders/Memory Box/Stampin’ Up)

 7.  EMBOSSING FOLDERS – (Darice/Cuttlebug/Sizzix/Quick Kutz/Stampin’Up)

 8.  IMAGICUT by Imaginisce. –  Love this! 🙂  This cuts and seals ribbon and is wonderful for creating a polished, finished look.

 9.  ACRYLIC BLOCKS – You need these in multiple sizes and round ones too.  I recently got a round one and I love it.

10.  COPIC MARKERS – You really do need a wide assortment of colors for shading etc. but they aren’t cheap.

11.  Ranger CRAFT MAT


13.  CUTTERPILLAR PAPER TRIMMER –  I got mine at a stamp show and love it. 🙂   I also have the Fiskars PROCISION ROTARY BYPASS TRIMMER which you can of course get a Michael’s Arts & Crafts.  They both work great and have self-sharpening blades but the CutterPillar Pro has a light underneath where it cuts the paper which is sometimes helpful.  They are EXPENSIVE so again use a 50% off coupon at Michael’s like I did.

14.  COPIC MASK IT masking film.

15.  BOW EASY – Love this! 🙂 It makes 7 different sized bows from 3/4 inch to 2 3/4 inches.  Heard about it from “Sandi” and   purchased it at a stamp show.
