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.
