Easily distress the edges of papers, card stock, and Grungeboard™ with the aid of this handy-dandy Paper Distresser. The Kushgrip center provides a comfortable, non-slip grip.
Distress photos, papers, cardstock, chipboard, Grungeboard™, polymer clay, and even metal with this handy wire brush. Go lightly over your surfaces or apply more pressure for heavily grunged looks: you are in complete control with this tool! The kushgrip handle provides a comfortable non-slip grip, while the wire brush fully retracts into it for safe transport and storage.

Punch tiny holes through your scrapbooking papers, chipboard, polymer clay and other project materials with this clever Retractable Craft Pick. The needle retracts into the handle for safe transport and storage, and can extend in increments up to 1¼" to accommodate many different kinds of materials. The kushgrip handle provides a comfortable non-slip grip.

Perfect for slicing through scrapbook papers, chipboard, Grungeboard™, polymer clay, card stock and more, this craft knife features a small detail blade for precision cutting and a kushgrip handle for comfortable crafting. The blade fully retracts into the handle for safe transport and storage, and 4-packs of refill blades are sold separately.
I used all four tools to create this card:
I used the Vintage Finds collection by Teresa Collins. I took the flower sheet and cut lots of flowers out to create the layered flower, I used the craft knife to get into the small detail cutting.
I distressed all the edges of the flower with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and used the Craft Scratcher to distress parts of the flower.
I cut four 2" squares out from the same flower paper and a Coredinations sheet of Slate cardstock. I distressed the top of the paper with the Craft Scratcher and the edges with the Edge Distresser. I also did this with the cream cardbase and Kraft mat. All the pieces were inked with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.
I used the Craft Pick to poke the holes for the brads. I finished the card with a sentiment, some jewels and ribbon.
