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.
Hi all! Super late tonight, so I’ll make this quick. :)
I’ve had this idea for “cute as a button” with the the letter O as a button for a while now.
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.
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.
Send me your cards and they might be featured in an upcoming video! Please mark the month your card is for on the outside of the envelope.
