Into the Woods

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

Sorry it’s been so long between posts, hubby got a great new job and things have been hectic!

Woodland Critters Silhouette Card

I recently got the chance to try out the new Stamping Material made for the Silhouette electronic die cutting machine. This thin clear material allows you to die cut images and then stamp with them, very cool! The material cuts really nicely but I must admit I did have some trouble getting the stamps inked up well. Chalk and pigment inks seemed to work the best but dye ink puddled up on the stamps. I did try using a small sponge dauber to apply the dye ink to the stamps (instead of inking directly on the ink pad) and got better results that way. I love the idea of cutting my own stamp designs but I do wish the material gave a better image when stamped.

For my card I used a cute die cut set of woodland critters (I added extra details to them with black and white pens). Here are the stamps themselves. I’ll probably be storing them on acetate sheets in plastic sleeves.
