Pixscan Technology with Unity Stamps

Stamped Image cut using Pixscan Mat

I’ve posted a new StampTech video to YouTube showing you how I use Silhouette’s NEW Pixscan mat with my iPhone 4S and Silhouette Cameo to cut around stamped images, particularly Unity Stamp Company stamped images. 

These stamped images were wet embossed onto watercolor paper and were colored using Distress Markers and Inktense pencils. The watercolor paper is FILLED with stamped images.

This new technology is pretty miraculous. Take a look!

In the above video, we cover Silhouette’s Pixscan technology with my iPhone 4S and I show the trace and offset tools in Silhouette Studio for stamp-to-cut success!

“Wishing You Happiness” Unity SOTW

wishing you happinessAbove is a picture of a card I put together using this awesome Stamp of the Week available at Unity Stamp Company, August 24-30, 2014.

Clean and simple cards have been all the rage the past few years and sending them to friends and loved ones can be much easier than the bulky dimensional cards. Right? Sometimes, though, I’m inspired by a stamp to build a card from the stamp up and then out.

Do you know what I mean?

This week’s Stamp of the Week made me a card builder using layers, dimension, folds, pop dots, glossy accents, embossing folders, etc. I tried to stop after a couple of layers but I just kept building a card to showcase this fancy bird. It’s pretty fancy and deserves the attention I think. It’s SO fun to color.

I’ve included a very QUICK video for dimensional demonstration purposes only.  I just couldn’t capture the dimension of the above card with my camera.

It’s quick, I promise, under 30 seconds.

Watch video to see the dimension and layers of the above card in all of its glory!

There are only TWO days left to add this BEAUTIFULLY detailed Stamp of the Week to your crafty stash.

I have no doubt it will make YOU and others very happy.
