from Silhouette . . . it’s not just for rhinestones anymore.
“What’s that,” you say?
’tis true, ’tis true.
A little bit ago I was wondering what I could run through my Silhouette to cut my shapes that was thin enough and yet provide some kind of good stamping material.
I took a look around . . . saw my rhinestone template material . . . and the wheels started a-turnin’.
I cut four or five of one shape (the beauty of digital craft cutters) and layered them all together to get this.
What’s really great about the material is it’s workable–meaning, if you don’t lay it down quite right on top of each layer, you can carefully undo what ya done and get it positioned correctly.
Now, I haven’t tried this with anything too intricate yet ’cause I’m not sure how it would cutting something like that with the rhinestone material. So maybe just keep that in mind if you try it.
The material doesn’t necessarily hold the ink to its highest level, however, because you are working with it on a clear block, you can stamp repeatedly!
On this image, I stamped it like four times.
Just wipe it off, peel it off, maybe save it on a page protector or something, and you’ve got it ready the next time you want to use it!
And here is the end result:
Sorry. I’d intended for more of the flower to show, but you know how it goes sometimes in the world of crafting. ;)
Another cool thing? I laid it all out in the Silhouette Studio software before cutting. Loooove doing that! Looks a little something like this:
Makes it ever-so handy, dontcha think? :)
I’m dyin’ to try this stamping technique with one of those ABC borders or montage. Ooooh….
thus endeth the lesson for today.
