Print & Cut Fun

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope 2012 is starting off great for you. Today, I want to show you something fun to do with your Silhouette. (At this time, I'm not sure how to do this with other electronic cutting machines, but if anyone does, please let me know!)  In the store, you will find a few Print & Cut files.  These files make fussy-cutting a thing of the past, and if you're anything like me, you will be dancing in the hallways about this!
Here's how you use them...
  1. Open file in Silhouette Studio and resize as you want (the free version works just fine).  You can combine multiple print and cut files on one piece of paper to save precious supplies. You will need to do this in Silhouette Studio before printing. {Note: my printer had memory issues with a full sheet, so there was a touch of waste.}
  2. Click "Send to Silhouette" like you do for every other cut file. {Note: Be sure the Registration Mark Settings are set to show.}
  3. The Silhouette will guide you through the rest of the steps in order to make this SUPER easy digital die cut.
For my card, I printed the file on watercolor paper with a color laser printer.  I then colored the image with Distress Stains (coming soon to the store!), and spritzed with Pearlized Water (ala Jennifer McGuire).  The hearts and Dream are outlined with Smooch.  The image is popped up on 2mm adhesive dots.  The package we have in the store has tiny little circles that work great for the heart raindrops on this image.
See! Aren't they perfect?! This card is for this week's Mojo Monday sketch.
Don't forget, we still have a Design Team call going on.  You can see all the details HERE.

Hi Michelle! I LOVE this stamp! I added it to my cart on the website. My printer ink should be here any day and then I'm going to be a stamp printing fool! :P
