I have a Silhouette Portrait cutting machine and the Silhouette Stamping Starter Kit. I couldn't fine much info on what stamp pads work best with it, so I decided to try some out. Do not confuse this with the Silhouette Mint stamp making machine and its materials, I don't have one of those.
First a few words about the stamp material. It is a sort soft flexible plasticy stuff, possibly silicone. Its a bit like the stuff silicone baby bottle teats used to be made of. It is a bit like the stuff clear acrylic stamps are made off, but it is much softer and not quite as clear.
Anyway, there is a tutorial on how to use it here at the Silhouette School blog, so I'm not going to present one here. The comments are worth reading too. http://www.silhouetteschoolblog.com/2014/09/silhouette-stamp-material-tutorial-10.html
Silhouette recommend that cuts in the stamp material are 1/16 of an inch apart, that is about 1.5mm here in Australia. So much craft information is from the US that its hard to use metric for everything as I would like to. This width means you can't do small writing or anything like that.
I decided to make the flower that's on the box of the Starter Kit first. The box has a somewhat misleading picture on it, I mean the inked-up black flower on the grid on the left. The one to the right is a better indication of what the stamp is like.
I made the flower but there was some problem with alignment and one side of the flower was not cut. When I find out why I will post the information here.
I found the stamped image a bit disappointing, that led me to do some experiments and gave me something to blog about.
