You deserve the best

Hi there!

I've had so much fun lately with the gorgeous digital stamps from Graciellie Design. So here's my first card with one of my most recent purchases 😊

 I used :

Here's a short explanation of how I did the partially cut out digital stamp:

  1. Open the image in the Silhouette studio
  2. Trace the image to get cutting lines
  3. Do an offset (I do a 1 mm offset)
  4. Move the digital stamp away from the cut lines
  5. Create your frame and choose to make the frame a compound path
  6. Position the traced cut lines of the image so as to overlap the frame
  7. Select all and choose 'weld'
  8. Now you can move the digital stamp back to line up with the cutting file you designed
  9. Print & Cut

Thanks for the explanation on how to make this Hannelie. I may dust my silhouette off soon and give this a go.

So pretty! I use my Silhouette all the time to fussy cut digi stamps but I've never thought to add a frame - it's such a clever idea! Thanks for sharing!

Oh, Hannelie! How beautiful and amazing! Love your design, your coloring, and your Silhouette skills are to die for! I was just thinking I should vacay to Abu Dhabi, but your directions are much appreciated too!

Your card has a fresh loveliness! I haven't used a digital stamp in a long time. After seeing your card, I feel I need to look through my files and find a digital stamp that inspires me.

This is one of my favorites! I love hanging baskets, whether stamps or real life. I like how you designed this, and you're so good to share the instructions for those who use a Silhouette. You're very clever with it!

What a beautifully coloured and detailed hanging basket, Hannelie ... puts me in mind of the macrame ones from the 70's ... great retro! Always happy to have you playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)
