WOYWW I'm back

I can't believe I am still up at this hour (2 AM) but I was writing up a tutorial on how to use the Silhouette to cut your stamped images. I need to proofread the steps before I post. If anyone knows how to record your actions on the screen let me know as I'd rather do this as a video.

I made the card below as part of the "testing the theory" portion of my work on that coming post. Isn't the cut line on that plane beautiful.
The particulars: Paper: Stampin' Up! Bashful Blue, Whisper White, DCWV The Glittered Winter Mat Stack Ink: Stampin' Up! Real Red, Night of Navy Stamps: Papertrey Ink Fly Away Dies: PTI Clouds

If you have a Silhouette machine you may want to click "follow" so you will not have to go hunting for this coming tutorial later this week.

Maybe I'll break the top 100 on WOYWW this week.


Happy Crafting,

Such a fun card! I don't have one of those machines but that's a great idea to get it to cut a nice line around your stamped images.

Oh, your up late! Bet the day after went in a haze. The card is gorgeous, love the muted colours and the clean layout.

You can have a go with the coffee filter album later, it's quite fun and an easy project.

Now that's dedication staying up until 2am. Your card is beautiful, I love the fluffy clouds.
That stamp on my desk is from Stampin Up and is the beautiful large medallion. I've been using it as a background stamp on some Valentine's cards.
Thanks so much for visiting.
Hugs Lisax

lovely card,

vidoeoing takes just as long, it is simply a different medium and I think is easier for the tutee to understand your point/demonstration/technique (if it is a tutorial are the recipients tutees?)

you also have to get over how you look and sound - it is Not Easy.

SueH said...

Cute card Katie, that little plane is so sweet.
I wish I was able to work out stuff like that because I have a craft robo and I’m ashamed to say it’s been banished to the cupboard because I can’t be bothered to spend time working out how to use it

MaggieC said...

Lovely card, but there really should not be two 2 O'clocks in one day.

SYLVIA-ANNE said...

Perfect cutting around the image, and a great "male" card. I don't have one of these machines, but it's very kind of you to do a tutorial for those who do.
Have a great weekend - Hugs, Sylvia xxxx
