You heard me right, Silhouette can now cut rubber stamping material, to create unique and reusable stamps. Here is how it works.
Make sure to adjust your blade and settings prior to cutting. I am always nervous when trying out a new product, so I also watch a few You Tube tutorials and check out the Silhouette Blog.
I thought it would be fun to create a stamp that I could stamp on artwork that the kids bring home and that we will end up keeping in their art boxes. I wanted it to introduce the kid and provide me with a blank space to add their name, age and grade. So I decided to create a stamp with text stating, "Made with ♥ ".
Here you can see how the rubber stamp cutout is raised on the block.
I just flipped the work over and stamped the sweet little saying on each piece.
Once dry, I followed behind and filled in each piece of work with the name, age and grade of the boy who created it. Now, I can keep the stamp and use it on their work each time it is saved going forward.
The other stamp I created, to spruce up some simple tag labels. This time, I used gold ink, I found it works best to dab the pad onto the stamp vs. the other way around.
It won't look like the ink is adhering, but it is there! The grid on the stamping block also helps line things up when you are ready to stamp the object.
These tags made their way to the guest bathroom. Pretty eh?
