Scraptastic Club | How to create digital cut files using stamps from the kit.

Hi everyone! Scraptastic Club will have a new, fabulous website soon, but until then the old website is almost completely down. This means no Scraptastic Club blog posts. But, as I have my own blog I thought I would share my Scraptastic blog post here!

This month I'm working with the Elastic Heart kit and for today's project I used the main kit only:  

But, NOT included in this kit are the digital cut files I used on this page: the camera, the circle with the heart and the strip with the text in the top right corner.

To create all of these I used the (image of the) stamps from the August Wednesday Night kit. Want to know how?? Well let me show you! 

First of all, the stamp set: make sure before you start to save the image of the stamp set in your computer (easiest way is to just right click on the image below and save). 

Step 1. Open the stamp set image in your Silhouette: 

Step 2. Click on the trace icon in the top right corner, click "select trace area" and select the entire stamp set:

Step 3: remove the click at "High Pass Filter" and change the "Treshold" to about 60:

Step 4: Click the "Trace" button:

Step 5: Drag the black image aside and delete:

Step 6: VoilĂ : your own cut files!! Drag one of the corners to change the size:

I used the shiny black cardstock (My Mind's Eye: Black Bear) from the Elastic Heart main kit for my cut files: 

Really loving the result!! Hope you'll give it a try too. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! 

Don't you just love that pink acrylic word or those gold foil pennants from the WeR ephemera package in this kit?!

Thank you so much for stopping by and if you want to check out this kit and it's contents, just go HERE

Have a fab week!
