What you will need:
- Silhouette Stamping Starter Kit
- Silhouette Cameo/Portrait
- Card or paper for using your stamps on
You get everything you need to make stamps in the starter kit, which means you can get started right away! Start by opening up a new page in silhouette studio
I chose the honeycomb design and rezised it to suit my project.
I also selected a today design as I wanted to use this in the future for my to do lists and planner. I resized these by opening up the scale window and changing the width and height.
The next step after choosing your designs is to ensure that the cut settings are correct and you can do this by clicking on the cut settings icon. The cut lines will show as thick red lines.
You will also need to adjust the rollers on your Silhouette machine to accomodate the smaller mat. You can do this by flipping down the blue lever on the righthand side of the machine and gripping the bar gently, whilst holding the white roller and twisting it off out of the groovess. It can then be moved along to the next set of grooves and locked into place. Remember to push the lever back up to secure the bar ready for loading the mat.
The mat comes with a protective white covering and this should be removed before placing your stamp material onto the mat.
Once the mat is loaded you can then send the design to cut.
Your design will then proceed to cut and you can unload it as normal after it has finished.
I peeled back the unused stamp material from the mat and then removed my designs. Some weeding may be needed, but you should be left with a clean design stamp ready for mounting onto the acrylic block.
Included in the starter kit you are supplied with three different sized acrylic blocks and an ink pad.
Place your design on a flat surface and choose an acrylic block to mount it to. You can then ink the stamp (either by stamping directly onto the pad, or dab the stamp pad onto the stamp)
This is the best kit for people wanting to create their own stamps, as everything is there for you to get started right away.
I really enjoyed sharing this tutorial with you and can't wait to see what you create with this kit!
