Some More Fun With Tickled Pink and My Cameo

You may have already seen these over at the Tickled Pink Stamps blog but I thought I'd share them here too...

I was recently VERY lucky to get myself a Silhouette Cameo cutting machine - this is one AWESOME piece of machinery let me tell you! While checking out online tutorials I found THIS one from Under a Cherry Tree on how to use pictures on your computer to print and then cut out gift tags - all done on the Cameo software. 

In Jin's tutorial there are some elements you need the upgraded software for but I made these using the coloured images I'd done for Kellie for the store and the software that came with the machine. The outer mask is a little too wide but I'm happy with my first attempt.

Here they are fresh off the Cameo - printed and then cut out ready to mat and decorate!

All done - once I spent the time making the pattern up it took mere minutes to print, cut and finish them off.

PLEASE be aware that I asked Kellie for permission to re-produce these coloured images even though I had coloured them up myself. Many stamp companies don't allow mechanical re-productions of anything but the lineart - so check the Angel Policy or contact the stamp company if you have ANY questions about doing this! You could also use family photos or clip art in the same way!

Re digital stamp lineart and the print and cut feature- using some of the methods I used here I worked out I could print and cut some of my digis ready for colouring - I need more practice though as I don't think the effort is worth it. My scissors aren't obsolete just yet - LOL

This is very cute. I hope you continue to show your projects, I haven't seen this machine but you are definately on the way to master it.

I have My First free candy on my blog if you want to enter the drawing.

Wow! These are fantastic. And ... you are one lucky girl! Can't get my head around how it works ... but it does a great job! I am sensing a little hesitation about the effort. Does it take a while to do? Hugs xxx
