Trusty Tools Basic Tips for the stamp set, dies and Trusty Toolbox designer paper

Today, it is all about the Trusty Tools Bundle and the Trusty Toolbox Designer paper. I share the basics with the stamp set, die set, and paper.

Talking about the Trusty Tools bundle this month for customer appreciation; I have a download that includes eight projects using this lovely bundle. PSSST, I bet you think masculine cards or projects with this bundle, but I have some projects in pink so that they can be for all men and women. Details for customer appreciation are listed below. Also, Holly and I will be live this Saturday to share the eight projects. 

Trusty Tools Video to Share Basic Tips 

Throughout the video, I have great tips for using the Trusty Tools stamp set, die set, and designer paper. I even shared how to turn gold foil into silver foil, perfect for the tools.

Above, I circle in red the dies that coordinate with the stamps. For the wrench and the hammer, the head can be used separately. For the paintbrush, it is the brush itself that can be used, but I explained in the video that it will cut the brush individually.

The paper many of the printed tools can be die cut with a matching die—for example, hammerhead, wrench, vise grip, pencil, and tape measure. Also, a good pair of snips can do a great job with the other tools 🙂 

Voila Gold Foil Turning Into Silver Foil 

Tip For Gold Foil to bet Silver Foil

I was a little excited to discover the gold foil can be silver foil with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. Stampin’Up! is not carrying the silver foil anymore, and with the tool, I love silver. So, the Stamping’ Blends do a fantastic job. Note that it only works on the Gold, not the Rose gold. (I know we have the Holographic, but I find it too shiny for tools) So now you can have your silver tool!

Trusty Tools Card

Here is the card that I created while shooting the video. On the right-hand side, you can see the difference between the Holographic paper and the silver foil (silver foil made with the gold foil) 

The letter used for the “Tools” is from the Mini Alphabet. Holly and I shared a tip during the walkthrough of the new catalog. CLICK HERE for the video starting at that part of the Alphabet.
