Friends!  IT’S HERE!  And it’s on sale!!!  That’s right, the product you’ve been waiting for is available now…the Silhouette Stamping Starter Kit!  I know many of us {myself included} have been anxious to get our hands on this, so take a look at this great promo, and then I’ll show you the first project I made using my kit!  Ok?  Ok!  Here’s the deal:

What is it?  Well, the Stamping Starter Kit contains everything you need to start creating your own custom clear stamps!  Here’s what’s inside:

3 sheets of stamp material (6 in x 7.5 in)
Cutting mat for stamp material

3 acrylic blocks (3 x 4″, 2 x 3″, 2 x 6″)
Black ink pad

This kit is regularly available for $29.99, but is on sale 20% off through September 13th!  If you need a cutting machine too, you can buy a bundle that includes a Portrait {$129.99} or a Cameo {$269.99}!  That’s like getting the Portrait for $50 off and getting the Stamping Kit thrown in for FREE!  

Ok.  So, how does it work?  Let me show you by walking you through my first stamping project, these personalized Mason Jars!

Stamped Mason Jars

Step 1: Create your stamp design{s} in your software.  I decided to play around with a monogram as well as my blog name.  Since my title has so many letters, I thought it might be easier to create the negative image of it as the stamp, so I drew circles and put text inside.  I love that I can use my actual logo font to create my stamp!  Three cheers for personalization!  At first I thought I might need to create the mirror image in order for it to stamp correctly, but the stamping material is the same on both sides, so you can cut it normally.


Step 2: Adjust your blade and settings for the stamp material.  Place it on your mini-mat and smooth out the air bubbles.  Then, cut your design!
I do need to make a few comments here.  First of all, make sure you remove the protective lining from your little cutting mat so that the stamping material has a sticky surface to adhere to.  I have a friend {no names here!} who didn’t do that first, and ended up wasting a whole sheet of the material because it wasn’t adhered in place during the cutting process.  Second, the rollers are not supposed to go on the stamping material.  When I tried to set mine to grab just the small mat, I had trouble with it moving around during cutting and not turning out right.  So, I introduce you to my solution!  I taped my smaller mat onto my larger one.  This worked like a charm.  Just be careful that you know where your stamping material is positioned in relation to your large mat {the handy dandy grid boxes will help with that} so that you place them in the right spot to be cut.


Step 3: Peel your cut stamp off the mat and place it on the acrylic block that it best fits.
You’ll find that it’s very easy to peel and stick this material.  You can see here that I stuck the circle on my block.  I also had to make sure I grabbed the little pieces that went inside my “o”s, “e”s, and “a”s and placed them where they needed to be.

Step 4: Press your stamp onto the ink pad, then press it firmly onto your paper.  Ta da!
For this image, I used the black Silhouette stamp pad and a piece of vanilla cardstock.  I tried using some other stamp pads I had on hand so I could make colored images, but they didn’t turn out nearly as well.  This ink pad is raised up and very sticky, which I think was the important factor.  The stamping material didn’t “grab” my other ink, so the designs turned out light and splotchy.  Moral of the story…if you’re buying colored ink pads to use with this, go for raised up and sticky; try to find something that looks like the black one.

Here’s how my monogram one turned out.  The fun part is that when you cut it as the negative image like I did {inside a shape} you can also use the piece you cut out as its own stamp…see what I mean?  I can use the circle or just the L!


Step 5: Create your lid covers!  For my blog logo, the stamp itself was large enough to cover the entire lid, so that’s what I did!  Fun, huh?  I decided to use the stamped “L” on the other one, so I cut it out as a scalloped circle, then adhered it onto a piece of decorative scrapbook paper.

I’m using one of the jars to store cotton balls and the other to store my nail decorating pens, files, and “no more mistakes” manicure corrector pen.  They help me stay more organized {yay for less mess in the closet!} and I think they’re much more fun to look at this way!

Of course my stamps and I didn’t stop there…I have several other stamped projects to share with you this week to help you get excited about buying and using your own Stamping Starter Kit!  Truth be told, there was a bit of a learning curve, but I got to figure it all out for you ahead of time so now I can share my tips and tricks and wisdom and save you the trouble!  You’ll just be able to enjoy creating!  So, what do you think?!  Creating and using your own stamps is just as fun as it sounds!  Don’t forget to use the code ARTSY at checkout to claim your special deal on the Stamping Starter Kit or the cutting machine bundles!

  1. I love how your project turned out, Amy…in fact, your monogram is so cute, I might have to try that next. And thanks for not outing me with your mention of removing the protective layer. (Although, I totally outed myself here AND in my post today…whoops!) That was definitely not my brightest moment.

    Anyway, thanks for so generously sharing your tips and tricks with us here.
