MACM – Masked & Misted Card

Morning, all!

For this week’s Make a Card Monday card I wanted to try using some ink mist. Back in January (yes, it was a while back), Kelly Purkey gave me some Studio Calico Mister Huey’s Mist to try out. One of the colors she gave me was Piglet. Such a pretty pink color! Before I made this card, I tested the mist out and sprayed it only a couple times on some white cardstock. It was a nice pale, subtle pink. But as you can see in today’s card, the mist layers really well and creates a nice “Piglet” pink. I think the name is perfect!

Anyhow, I created a design in the Silhouette Studio software that I used as a mask while I misted the ink on the front of the card. Super fun! The video tutorial of how I created the repeated circle design is below the MACM video.

Enjoy!

Just couldn’t get it out of my head! :)
Thought it would be a great opportunity to create a card using my Silhouette cutting machine as well.

Enjoy!

Video: How to Trace Images in Silhouette Studio

Hi all! Thanks so much for the overwhelming response to my Silhouette Studio how-to videos! It sounds like there are a lot of you just starting out with your Silhouette cutting machine (or re-discovering it as was my case).

I was creating a title for a scrapbook page and decided I would bring y’all along with me. :)

In this video I show how to trace an image in Silhouette Studio for cutting. I started out in Adobe Illustrator, but you can use any image that has a good amount of contrast. Dark black shapes seem to trace better than colorized images.
