WE DO!!!!!!!!

It is the perfect time of year to bust out some Black Magic and do some Halloween projects.

We have a really cool technique to share with you today AND all wee long from the team over at KNK.   Here is a little bit more about the Klic -N- Kut:

Klic-N-Kut computerized cutting systems are top-of-the line digital die cutters. has a great selection of machines to choose from. These machines can cut everything from vinyl to rhinestone rubber, from paper to chipboard, from thin cotton fabric to stiffened felt.  Each machine comes with the choice of KNK Studio or Make The Cut!, two vector designing programs rich in functionality. For more information check them out HERE.

SO…we will have some very cool designs for you this week from Team KNK AND we there will be more..just keep reading! AND don’t forget to check out their Facebook page HERE!

So the grim reaper is the first design of the week! Again..we will be here all week showing you some cool designs PERFECT for this time of year. (Head over to the KNK blog for this freebie file…more details on that below)

So can you see how it is all about the colored Core. SO COOL!

NOW..are you looking for a super cool decoration piece?

Use a spotlight behind it!!!

Now…how do you create these works of art?  Start with the outer point of smaller pieces and peel toward the center or where it joins a larger section. Look very can see the cut lines.

And continue that process….

If your blade has penetrated far enough into the paper, the black layer will peel off easily.

Hold your paper piercing tool at a very low angle to the paper so you don’t pierce the colored layer, but slide just under the black layer.

Isn’t that crazy cool?!?!?!?!?!?

Here are some tips for cut settings:
Use  vinyl settings as a starting point on both the Maxx and the Zing,
with your blade protruding slightly less than the thickness of the paper.
This, combined with the low pressure, results in cutting only through that
top layer of the card stock. Then use a piercing tool to peel away the
black where I’d cut the design. See above.
KNK Maxx:  250 v and 38 f
KNK Zing:  10 v and 15 f

BOTH the KNK blog AND the Core blog will be giving away a pack of Black Magic to one lucky winner! So comment here and there all week long for a chance to win.

AND they have FREEEEEEEE  Halloween files  created specifically for use with Core’dinations card stock available in AI, GSD, KNK, MTC, SVG, and WPC !!!!!!!!!!!!  HOW COOL IS THAT??!?!?!  You need to head over to their blog to get those.  These are the images you will see on the blog this week.

    136046 819675The next time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as considerably as this 1. I mean, I do know it was my choice to read, even so I in fact thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is actually a bunch of whining about something which you could fix for people who werent too busy in search of attention. 899915
