Although it's been an essential tool in our stamping kit for years, we
never got that excited over an X-Acto knife until we discovered this
little gem! With its slim, tapered barrel, this feels and handles
almost like a regular ink pen. And the blades are smaller than most
other knives', making it easily maneuverable when trimming even the
tiniest areas. Best part of all? The blade retracts with the push of a
button…no more caps falling off and accidentally slicing
your fingers as you reach into your stash. Refill blades (HX295)
available at most office supply stores or through our website.
Keep a bunch of 'em handy at all times. X-Acto knives work best (and
are safest to use) with fresh blades. Model HX295 fits our X-Caliber

liquid blending technique. Simply press the stump gently against the
sponge-top dabber bottle containing Gamsol (sold separately); you'll
see the stump darken with just the right amount of liquid. Using light
pressure with circular motions, blend the colored pencil lines of your
stamped image. Pull the color toward the center of the image with your
stump to achieve a shaded look. You'll receive one of each size #2, 4,
and 6. May be used over and over again; just file off excess color with
an emery board or sandpaper until stump is clean.

getting a perfect point, and this sharpener is compact and
