ScanNCut: stamped image


When you want to perfectly cut out a stamped image, the ScanNCut really can’t be beat! You just want to follow these tips:

  • You need an image with a clear outline
  • If the outline has breaks, or isn’t solid you can touch it up quickly with a pen
  • Solid images (such as alphabet/words) work in color too! just make sure there is a clear/solid form for the machine to pick up

Here is my video tutorial showing how I scanned, cut, and colored this bird in no time!

Supplies Needed: ScanNCut, stamp, permanent ink, watercolor/water reactive colors, ribbon, buttons, word stickers, sewing machine and thread

Of course once scanned in and cut out, the possibilities are endless! For my fun little bird I decided to make a card.

1. Stamp, scan, cut, and color the bird/image.

2. On a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ piece of cream cardstock, stamp a background image or use a piece of patterned paper this size.

3. Add some flecks of mist/color to the background for contrast.


4. Stitch the ribbons in place. To do this first start stitching a bit, then scrunch the ribbon up as you sew to get fun folds and added texture. Stitch a second or third line for added color contrast and stability.

5. Adhere the bird image with foam adhesive to add dimension.

6. Finish the project with buttons and stickers.

I don’t know about you- but I just LOVE how this turned out! This is such a great way to feature stamps! Quite often, I color a bunch of images and then when I want to feature one I especially like, this is a quick and easy way to go from image on paper to feature focus of a card! As you can see it doesn’t take long, or much product either.

I am a paid consultant for Brother International Corporation and have received a ScanNCut from Brother to evaluate. However, the opinions expressed are entirely my own and based on my use of the product.
