One of the coolest products to come out of CHA was definitely the Silhouette Stamping Starter Kit!
The ability to actually create your own polymer stamps from images on in the Silhouette online store or from images you import into your own library is nothing short of revolutionary — and I LOVE “revolutionary!” Now you can create the perfect stamp to accompany your scrapbook layouts, or your paper crafting projects. Yahoo!
So today I’ve got a couple of things for you. First, the Silhouette promotion: From now through Sept. 13 you can save 20% on a stamping starter kit, just by clicking here and using code LAIN at checkout!So if you’ve been wondering if you NEED a Silhouette Cameo or a Portrait, the answer just might be YES.
The Stamping Starter Kit includes a special mat, the polymer material (three sheets), a download card, a DVD, and a quick start guide. Oh, you also get a stamp pad and a few acrylic blocks to get you started, all for $23.99! Oh, and there are also packages come with a Portrait or a Cameo. Yay!
Next, here’s a little project I did with the stamping kit that Silhouette sent me:
A few hints when using your Silhouette Stamping Kit:
-Not every shape makes a good stamp. As you can see from my stamp, a lot of the details did not come out when I cut it. Here’s the original image:
-You have to change the cutting mat size, which was not mentioned in the quick start guide. You can do this under the Page Tools Window menu.
-You also have to move the white rollers for your Silhouette, which is also not mentioned in the quick start guide. They are stick little buggers, so get ready to PULL.
-Your image may not seem like it cut all the way through, but if you are very careful, you can separate it. Go slow!
Other than that, you should be good to go!
