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!
