Amazing Impresslits by Tim Holtz

Hi friends! Today I’m excited to bring you some great little embossing/cutting folders called Impresslits from Tim Holtz. They are tiny folders, easy to store, that both emboss and cut any number of paper materials, such as cardstock, vellum or metallic foil.

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

This card uses Let It Shine Artful Card Kit for the background, 3-D Laurel, 3-D Provincial and 3-D Medallion Impresslits Embossing Folders with Dies.

I used Metallic Gold Paper to create each of the Impresslit embellishments.

I inked the edges and surfaces with Jet Black StazOn® Ink Pad because it is a permanent ink and won’t rub off the metallic surface.

I finished my card by adding a cut-out and greeting from Let It Shine Artful Card Kit. I also created a flower from Shapeabilities Succulent and Mum Flower Cutting Die and added Enamel Dots to the center and around the card.

Debbie’s beautiful card uses Floral Musings Paper Pack, Double Stitched Oval Dies, Birthday Birds Stamp & Die Set, 3-D Burst, 3-D Flourish and 3-D Laurel Impresslits Embossing Folders.

She used Blue Parakeet Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish on paper to create her own unique color. After letting it dry she used the 3-D Laurel Impresslits Embossing Folder to both emboss and cut.

Lavender Blue Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish and Raspberry Sorbet Cosmic Shimmer Lustre Polish were used on the 3-D Flourish and 3-D Burst Impresslits Embossing Folders with Die. I love the bright colors!


Also some Enamel Dots add to the cards texture and sparkle!

Here’s a quick little video from Tim Holtz that I’ll think you’ll enjoy.

Creative Expressions Cutting Dies

Hello friends! I’ve been having the best time using Creative Expressions Paper Cuts Cutting Dies!

This white on white card was completed in just minutes! The monochromatic color scheme (which can be achieved with any color) has such an elegant look. I used white cardstock, Creative Expressions Paper Cuts Collection Butterfly Garden Cutting Dies and some white ribbon.

Tip: The Best Wishes Die Cut was actually connected and I cut the words apart to fit the card center opening.

Tip: I find it helpful to use stencil or washi tape to secure the outer die evenly spaced around the decorative die.



This pretty green and white card continues with the white die cut theme, but the fresh spring green background makes everything really pop!

I used Pastel Cardstock, Mini Expressions Get Well Soon Cutting Die, Creative Expressions Paper Cuts Collection Thistle Patch Cutting Die, Coconut Palms Sparkletz, and a Lime Green Button and bow.

This colorful card uses Cosmic Shimmer Colours Shimmer Skakers which gives the Paper Cuts Honey Bee Circle Cutting Die a pretty pearlescent shimmer.

To make this card, I die cut the Honey Bee Circle from a square of white cardstock without using the outer die cut circle.

I Sprinkled the die cut with Lime Burst and Electric Blue Cosmic Shimmer Shakers.

Lightly mist with water and blot with a paper towel and let dry.

I added the Mini Expressions “Thinking Of You” Cutting Die to the center and Ice Sparkletz to he flower centers.

Lovely Legs Stamps

Hello crafty friends today I’m bringing you the very clever Lovely Legs Stamps. As soon as the Paper Wishes Design Team saw these stamps we knew they would be fun to work with!

I chose to work with the Be A Mermaid Stamp Set because, well, I LOVE Mermaids!

I used a large white cardstock Double Sticked Oval Die Cut for the background and then colored the mermaid and beach with Spectrum Noir Pens.

I used Green Salt Paper on the Center Step Die Cut Card and placed torn strips of paper along the bottom edge of the card before stamping the greeting.

I used Cosmic Shimmer Specialist Acrylic Glue to place individual Sea Level Sparkletz Embellishments around the card.

Debbie used Ruby Rose Paper Pack, the Be My Valentine Stamp and the Heart Pop-Out Die-Cut Card to make this adorable card.

After coloring with Le Plume Markers, Debbie embellished the images with Red Hearts Sparkletz Embellishments.

The white Fancy Border Dazzles™ Stickers were just the right touch, don’t you think?
