Stamp Reveiw of the Week

Hi All!

I thought that I would do a review of a new stamp that I had recently purchased!

Brand: Hero Arts
Name: K5376 Hydrangea
Type:  Wood Mounted Rubber
Size:   Block Measures 8cm x 9.5cm

Well needless to say as with all Hero Arts products it is flawless!  I stamped it using Memento Black Tuxedo Ink and got a perfect impression first time!  It is the perfect size for making the image the main feature of your card as it will fill up a fair portion of the card front.

I coloured the image with my Copic Markers as shown below......it was an easy image to colour even for a beginner like me as the shaded areas are already marked out for you...you just apply your darkest marker in them!!  I don't think that would be called cheating....would it??

And here is a finished project with the image that I have coloured!

Score:  LOVE IT!!  5/5 Ink Pads!

I hope that you have enjoyed this stamp review, if you have a product that you would like me to road test please let me know!

Graduation Card

This is the first graduation card that I have ever made! Thank goodness for the Silhoutte online store! I have just received my new Cameo and have been cutting everything in sight!! The word graduation is a phrase from the store and I have added the words on your with the Tahoma font.

Then I added a shadow background by using the offset feature! 

Hope you are having a great day and get to have some creative time too!

Silhouette Settings for Cutting X-Press It Masking Film

Hi Everyone!!

I have been a long time user of the Provocraft Cricut, but have also had a Silhouette SD hidden away in my cupboard for....hmmm....2 YEARS!!  After 1 failed attempt at using the Silhouette I put it away.  However! I have recently brought it out of the closet..................and dare I say..............I am totally loving it!!~ SO much so, I have ordered the new version....the Silhouette Cameo that has a 12" platform!

Anyway, back to the real reason for this post!  I just wanted to share the settings for cutting your own masks with this machine and the X-Press It Masking Film!

Select the following settings
Media:  Silhouette Vinyl
Speed: 8
Thickness: 5
Blade Depth:  1
This setting cuts through the clear mask, but not the backing sheet!  Then you can reapply the mask to the backer so that you can use it over and over!!  I personally have had great results with these settings, if you don't........let me know!

Happy Cutting
