Turn Your Stamps into Die Cuts

As you know from my last blog post, I recently got a Silhouette Cameo 2 Electronic Die Cutting Machine. When I finally decided to purchase this machine after drooling over it for years, I told myself if I am going to dish out hundreds of dollars for another electronic die cutting machine I BETTER USE IT A LOT. Yes, I yelled it at myself in my head. I deserved the yelling though. Considering I spent $350.00 on the Sizzix Eclips when it first came out and I have a SLICE machine. I actually occasionally use the SLICE machine still just because it’s so small and convenient. Sizzix obviously realized they made a huge mistake with the Eclips machine because the cartridges that they used to sell for $40-60 each are now $5.00-6.00 on their website. I’d say that’s admitting you messed up. I didn’t purchase any cartridges and the only reason I bought the Eclips was because I knew I would also purchase the ECAL software (for $50.00 more) and make my own designs. Sizzix actually has an Eclips 2 now that’s specifically designed to be used only with a computer.  I suppose I could have just kept using my Eclips but I just did not like the software at all! So, after years of contemplation, I bought the Silhouette Cameo 2 and got a great bundle with a ton of extra stuff for only $250.00 and Silhouette doesn’t charge you for software (unless you want the designer edition). Now there’s a company that knows what they’re doing!

So, here’s a fair warning that a lot of my blog posts will likely include the use of the Silhouette Cameo 2 machine. However, I am sure a lot of what I am using it for could be achieved in other ways. Such as fussy cutting or using the dies that manufacturers make that you can run through a manual die cutting machine such as the Big Shot (which I still plan on using).

On to the real reason we are here! 

I was playing around with the Silhouette Cameo 2 and thought it would be sooooo cool if I could turn some of my stamps into die cuts!

It was easier than I expected and I am so happy with the results.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Pick a stamp and stamp it in black on white cardstock. (I used Tim Holtz Flower Garden Stamp Set)
  2. Take a picture of the stamped images after mounting them on your PixScan Mat. 
  3. Import the Pixscan image and trace it. Don’t just trace the outside edge like you normally would. Trace the entire image.
  4. Cut out the images and assemble on a card.

    It’s as easy as that! I also cut out the outer edge so I had something to stack the inside of the flower on. I love how well this worked and it’s an awesome way to stretch your stamps.

    Isn’t that just amazing!? If you have a Silhouette Cameo, I HIGHLY recommend getting a PixScan mat if you don’t already have one. It will greatly increase your creative abilities.

    All of the papers used on this card are Authentique and the stamped sentiment is by Avery Elle.

    That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by!

Close-up of moon area

This was one of those cards I made up as I went along. I really like how it came out, which was nice because it seems to be hit or miss with those types of cards. The background was done using 4 different smooch spritz colors. The moon was punched with a 1-1/2″ circle punch. The clouds and lightening bolt were cut on my eclips . The background paper is from a Martha Stewart mat pad. Various distress inks were used throughout. The moon was colored using Spectrum Noire markers. The lightening bolt was colored using one of the new metallic distress stains. The bird stamp and cityscape on the edge die are both Tim Holtz. If you need specifics or a tutorial on anything, just let me know!

Sunset Cemetery Halloween Card

I’ll have to be quick about this post but I want to cover some basics . The sunset idea was taken from Kristina Werner . She did it darker than this but the idea entirely came from watching her recent video. I originally did want to have a haunted house in the background and to have a fore and mid ground. However my brain has issues putting distances on a piece of paper so I scratched that plan. The On the Edge die that I used for the fence is called “iron gate” . The stamps are various studio g, fiskars, and inkadinkado stamps from this year and the past year. I used Spectrum Noire markers for some simple coloring. The labels die cuts are from a Spellbinders set. The far right headstone was made using ECAL and cut on my eClips . It was very easy to make, but if you’d like the svg file I’d be glad to send it. I’m not going to get into details but if you need to know the colors I used, what stamp is which company and etcetera , just ask me and I’ll be happy to tell you .
