Handmade by Stamp using the Silhouette Mint™

Hi! Bev here with a Silhouette Mint™ project I actually designed for my lovely mum.  It is a super quick project and the Mint machine and software is so user friendly, it makes it a very enjoyable one to complete!

What you will need:
  • Silhouette Mint™ Machine
  • Silhouette Mint™ Stamp Kit
  • Silhouette Mint™ Ink
  • Scrap Paper
Step One:

Open up a new page in your Mint Studio.  Select your mint stamp size and open a text box.  Write what you would like your stamp to say and select a font.

Using the fit to stamp tool in the scale option, select the text select the option to automatically fit.  It will ensure that all of the text is properly positioned.  Using a bumblebee design from the design store, select the eraser tool from the left hand panel.  Erase the unwanted bees and position the picture on the stamp.

Step Two:

Now it is time to send the stamp to the Mint and you do this by selecting the leaf box.

It will flip the image automatically for you so you do not need to worry about it printing the wrong way around.  Open the stamp kit box and feed the stamp into the back of the machine.

Once it has printed, break along the perforation and remove the black sheet from the cardboard.  Mount on the white block and apply ink onto the pad.  Once it has absorbed, use a scrap piece of paper to blot off all of the excess ink until you get a clean impression.

The stamp can then be used for 50 or so impressions before needing to be inked again.  I know this stamp will come in handy for my mum and I am happy to be able to share with you all.
