Sofft Tools enable a more direct connection with the working surface, making it easier to control and predict the final marks achieved.

These innovative Covers are sized specifically for use with Sofft Knives and Shapers. They transform Knives and Shapers into absorbent tools, capable of carrying and releasing color and material in a unique way. Sofft Covers are made from our specially formulated micropore sponge which is semi-absorbent.
When used with Sofft Covers, the traditional painting knife is transformed into a multi-use and absorbent applicator for art and craft techniques. These inexpensive tools function like a cross between a brush and a knife.
Each knife has been ergonomically designed to fit in the hand for ease of use and for good control. Sofft Knives are made from a flexible, and durable plastic material. The handles are shaped like wooden handle knives for maximum comfort. Sofft Knives can also be used without Sofft Covers as traditional painting knives.Sofft Shapers
These indispensable art and craft tools can be used for a variety of applications either with or without Sofft Covers. The flexible silicone tips, when used in conjunction with Sofft Covers, make Shapers a versatile and absorbent tool.
|Simply match the reference number of the Cover to the Knife or Shaper e.g use Cover No.1 with Knife No.1||Gently pull Sofft Cover completely over Knife or Shaper tip (like a sock). Covers can be re-used several times.|

Here's a delightful heart box decorated with Zentangle art and lined with hand-made paper that one of our CZTs, Mickey Weitsen, created for an upcoming benefit for St. Tammany Art Association and New Orleans Museum of Art.
Cut and score a 12 x 5 1/4" piece of cardinal red Worldwin cardstock. Place the LF-168 Grand Large Labels #7 (#1 is the smallest) die template and cardstock on your Grand Calibur base plate like shown, making sure scored cardstock is below cutting line on die template.
The cutting sandwich for the Grand Calibur is: A-Base Plate, die template with the cut side facing up, paper, then the C-Cutting plate. See how I placed the fold of the cardstock just inside the cutting line? That will make the shaped card base.
Next you're going to do the exact same step again . . . use the LF-168 Grand Large Labels #6 to cut then emboss a piece of patterned paper. Before adhering to your card base, using "Creamy Brown" ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink (by Clearsnap), ink around the entire label. From a coordinating piece of patterned paper, cut a 5 x 2" strip. Centering this strip on top of the LF-168 Grand Large Labels die template you just cut, attached with a zig zag machine stitch. Adhere to your card base.
Next, take black cardstock and your S5-031 Fancy Tags Three die template and cut with your Grand Calibur. To emboss, keep the die template cut side facing up, on the A-Base Plate with the paper inside of it. Place the Tan Embossing Mat on top of the die template and paper, then cover with the B-Embossing Plate. Feed the sandwich through the Grand Calibur. Center and adhere to the front of your card.
Using S4-116 Classic Circles SM #3, cut then emboss a circle from the Cosmo Cricket "Elements" sheet.
Embellish with Kaisercraft (black) pearls and a button. Adhere sticker sentiment to you card.

Here's another project I created using the same die templates . . . an altered floating frame. This time using the LF-168 Grand Large Labels die template to cut and double mat my photo. I wanted to keep the focus on the picture, but I also wanted to use the color "Grey" (the color for Brain Cancer). Using Flourishes "Think Pink - Fight like a Girl" (Set #63), the HOPE stamp was PREFECT for my title. I stamped it on the lightest shade of grey cardstock and using 3-D Foam adhesive popped it up onto one of the S5-031 Fancy Tags. My Dad has been fighting brain cancer for the last 10-months, this picture was taken during his first gammaknife procedure. My Dad has ALWAYS been the rock of our family . . . he's ALWAYS taken care of us, been there for us and now we're his ROCK, we'll take care of him and will ALWAYS be there by his side through this journey.
These are the die templates I revealed today . . .
