Silhouette Mint – The First Stamping

Welcome to Silhouette Mint, The First Stamping – Success-I’m-Not-Covered-In-Black-Ink-Party!!!

Silhouette Mint the First Stamping

I wanted a Silhouette Mint the minute I set eyes on it. I love stamping, even though I am rubbish at it! You may remember that when I bought my Silhouette Cameo 3 this little treasure fell into my basket too.

My first stamp is very simple. It’s the Designed By Jane Bradbury information I print on all the cards I make. I enjoyed making this stamp, it’s really quite easy.

I haven’t yet learned all the tricks of the Mint Studio software; it’s very similar to Silhouette Studio at first glance. I’ll do videos about designing in Mint Studio very soon I think, I am full of ideas for stamps.

Don’t be put off by my scruffy impressions. The stamp itself is perfect; it’s the user who is the problem.

The uneven coverage is not poor stamp design, but poor technique and inability to press down evenly on the stamp. If a design has good clear lines there’s no reason that an experienced stamper, or even someone just learning, can’t produce a clear impression. My husband tried this stamp and did get a good result – and it’s his first time ever using a stamp.

You may think “Well, you’re a bit rubbish at stamping, why did you even bother buying a Mint!”

Why not? I always wanted to try designing my own stamps and there’s one place messy stamping is always welcome. My Traveler’s Notebook pages.

There’s no stamping on this digital art journal page – yet. But there could be. And there will be… Once I’ve designed some more stamps! Oh, the ideas I have for the things I can do!

I hope you enjoy this short video. I’ll be going now, there’s stamps to design!
