Cards I made with my Zing

 
 
 
Hi All, thought I would share some of the things I have been making with you.  I have been busy playing with my Zing, learning how to alter files and make my own with the Make The Cut program.  For those of you who have asked, the Zing is a KNK Zing, it is an electronic or digital die cutting machine.  It cuts all different thicknesses and does print and cut too.  I did not know what it was either, until I started looking to replace my Cricut, so happy to say goodbye to that company!  I won't even buy their embossing folders, they don't play fair at all in the crafting community, selling machines with the promise of letting you use software to make and import cutting files, then pulling the rug and suing the companies who made the software that made their machines so popular, just so they could lock you into buying 80$ cartridges!!  That was a real dirty deal!  Well I don't need their folders anyway because I can make my own with my KNK Zing!
The 1st card is a Bendy card, the cut file is available from Birdscards.com.
The 2nd and 3rd cards were done with the Pixel trace tool in MTC using free clip art I found on the web.  The 4th card was a round door file from Bird that I changed out a bit to look like a more modern door, her file used a rounded door.  Well, that's it for today, I have more cards to share, I hope to post them later in the week.  I hope to catch up with your blogs this week too.  As always, thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  13. Love these cards with the crisp, clean style and fabulous images. Never heard of a zing but my circuit has been under the bed for ages, I find it such a fiddle to use with very few cartridges I like but I would love a machine where you could download images from the web and then you could choose only the ones you really want. Thanks for sharing your lovely cards Diane.
