Snow Birds Art Journal Page

This week the Gelatos® Color of the Week is Metallic Blueberry and that beautiful shimmery blue color reminds me of winter so I went through my Gelatos stash and found some great colors that go with it to use for an art journaling page. Besides Metallic Blueberry, I choose Elderberry and Metallic Grape. 

Winter Colored Gelatos

 

First off, here's how the page turned out:

Snow Birds

Supplies: Gelatos - Metallic Blueberry, Elderberry, Metallic Grape; Glass Bead Glitter Gel, Gel Medium, Gesso, PITT Artist Pens - Raw Umber #180, Black #199, Tag, White Cardstock, Patterned Papers, Wreath Diecut (download it for FREE right here), Sewing Machine Stitching, Brush, Pallet Knife, Bird Stamp, Ribbon

 

Here's what I did to create it.

I collaged some papers onto the page using Gel Medium. Once it was dry I scribbled my Metallic Blueberry Gelato over it.
1
 

I sprayed on a spritz of water and used a foam brush to move the Gelatos over the page.
2

 Next, I mixed together some Glass Bead Glitter Gel and Metallic Blueberry Gelatos.
3

I applied it with a pallet knife randomly all over the page.
4
 

Then I mixed the Glass Bead Glitter Gel with Elderberry Gelatos and applied it to the page as well.
5

 Then I did the same thing with  Glass Bead Glitter Gel and Metallic Grape Gelatos.
6

Doesn't that look so yummy!! I added a touch of just plain  Glass Bead Glitter Gel and let the whole page dry.
7

Next, I used my ScanNCut to cut out a wreath (which you can download for free HERE) out of wood veneer paper, white washed it with some diluted Gesso, and then added a bit of  Glass Bead Glitter Gel all over it.
8

 Next, I took one of my favorite bird stamps and rubbed the Metallic Blueberry Gelatos over it. Then (and this is where the magic happens) I huffed on it a few times.  -You know, the way you do to fog up your glasses or a window. Then I stamped it onto a piece of white cardstock.   I love using the MISTI to stamp with since if the image wasn't dark enough I'd repeat the same process on top of it and it lines up perfectly!
9
 

I used a Raw Umber #180 PITT Artist Pen to color the bird's legs on the stamp and then stamped them onto the paper.
10
 

I repeated that process to create 3 birds.
11

 Next, I took an XS tip Black #199 PITT Artist Pen and made sketch marks around the birds.

Snow Birds - CloseUp

 

And lastly, I printed out a nice wintery saying onto a tag and added the left over  Glass Bead Glitter Gel + Elderberry mixture around the edges.  After everything was dry I assembled it all together, adding some stitching on the bottom of the tag.

Wishing you many creative days this New Year!

Ugly Christmas Sweatshirt

It's that time of year when holiday parties abound. What are you going to wear? Here's an easy ugly holiday sweatshirt you can whip up for that fun party!

 DIY Ugly Holiday Sweatshirt 2

 

Supplies:

ScanNCut Machine and Accessories

Sweatshirt

White Flocked Heat Transfer Vinyl

Iron-On Fabric Adhesive

Fabric

Iron

Pressing Cloth

Ribbon

Buttons

Fabric Glue

FREE Cut-File

 

 

Instructions:

Watch this video or follow along with the instructions below:

 

 

Step 1 - In a photo editing program create the word art you want to use and save it as a .jpg file, or download the FREE cut file here.

  Step1

 

Step 2 – Open up ScanNCutCanvas.


To trace the .jpg file you created, click on the “image tracing” icon, select the file, choose “color” and click “ok.”

  Step2

To group all the letters and/or words, select all of them, click on “edit,” and then “group.” You can now move them easily anywhere you'd like on the screen.

Name your project if you're saving the file to your computer. If transferring the design wirelessly to your ScanNCut, click “ScanNCut Transfer” and then “close” and it will magically be waiting for you on your ScanNCut. If you've saved the downloaded free cut file onto your computer you can also transfer it wirelessly or save it to USB and then insert that into your computer.

  Step2b

Step 3 – Measure the space on your shirt to see what size you need your designs to be.
Step3

Step 4 – Apply the white flocked heat transfer vinyl to your cutting mat and insert it into the machine. Size your text to the correct size and add it to the mat. Add a test cut to the mat and then tell the machine to cut. It will perform the test cut first and then ask you to evaluate how it cut out. If no adjustments are needed proceed with cutting. If you do need adjustments, tell it to stop, make the adjustments and then perform another test cut before continuing on.
Step4

(Note: because the font I choose for “oh snap” is thick and I've overlapped the first letters of the words I can cut through all the layers of the heat applied vinyl without worrying if my letters will be distorted when I go to apply them to the shirt. If you are using another design you may want to only cut through the vinyl and not the sticky protective cover since it will help your transfer the design onto your shirt.)

After you're finished cutting out the text, unload the mat and remove the flocked vinyl. Press the home key on the ScanNCut.

 

Step 5 – Load the pre-installed gingerbread man (AR-1006) onto the screen and adjust the height and width to fit on your shirt.
Step5

 

Choose shape A to cut out just his outline and add it to the mat.
Step5b

Prepare the fabric by adhering iron-on adhesive to the back of it with a hot iron. Remove the paper backing and place the fabric onto the mat with the adhesive side down.

Adjust your blade, pressure and speed before cutting it out. -Once again, performing a test cut is a good idea!

 Step5c

 

Cut out your gingerbread man. Remove the excess fabric from the mat. Press the home button.
Step5d

 

Step 6 – Load the zig-zag pattern (BO-B004) from the pre-installed border patterns on your machine.
Step6

Scan in the cutting mat with the gingerbread man on it.

Resize and position your zig-zag to go across his body, like a broken cookie would be, and then cut it out. Unload your mat and remove the gingerbread man.

 Step6b

  Step6c

 

Step 7 – If you have space remaining on your left over fabric piece, apply it to your mat and load it back into the machine. Scan it in to reveal where you can position other gingerbread men, resize them if necessary and then cut them out.
Step7

 

Step 8 – Lay all of your cut pieces out onto your shirt, cover it with a pressing cloth and then iron them on.
Step8

Step8b

 

Remember to peel off the protective sheet on the flocked vinyl after it's cooled off from being ironed on.

Step8c

 

Step 9 – Embellish your shirt by gluing trim and buttons onto it with fabric glue.

Embossed Metal Christmas Ornament

Embossed Christmas Ornament 1

I love the holidays and am really looking forward to celebrating with friends and family. Every year we try to add to our ornament collection and this year I thought it would be fun to make some ornaments using my ScanNCut.

 

Supplies:

 

 

Instructions:

Watch this tutorial video or follow along with the steps below:

 

Activate the embossing function on your free account in ScanNCutCanvas using the activation code inside the ScanNCut Embossing Kit. Next, activate it on your ScanNCut machine by pushing the wrench button to open the settings and then scroll to the “Premium Functions” and select “on” next to “Kit Activation”.

 

 

In ScanNCutCanvas choose “line embossing” and then select the Christmas tree embossing pattern and size it to 3.25” x 2.4”. Click on the “Download” button and choose how you want to load it onto your ScanNCut. On your ScanNCut machine recall the pattern.

 Step2

 

Place the embossing mat, green side down, on top of a standard cutting mat with the tab on the bottom left and then remove the protective sheet. Place the silver metal sheet, with the protective sheets still on, onto the embossing mat and insert it into your machine.

  Step3

 

Press the scan icon to begin scanning in the metal sheet so you can place the pattern where you want it.

  Step4

 

Press the embossing icon (the icon with the + and box on it) and click on “Line Emboss” and then press the settings icon and change the embossing pressure to 0. Place the desired embossing tool into the embossing tool holder and insert it into the machine.

  Step5

 Step5b

Press “emboss” and then “start” and the ScanNCut will begin embossing the metal sheet with your pattern.

 

Carefully remove the embossed metal sheet from the embossing mat, leaving the protective sheets on it, and then trace a 3.5” circle around the Christmas tree and cut it out with scallop scissors.

  Step6

 

Use alcohol markers to color in the pattern.
Step7

 

Using your ScanNCut machine, cut out a 3.75” circle out of the corrugated cardboard, and a 4.25” circle out of red cardstock. Adhere the embossed metal sheet onto the cardboard, and then adhere that to the red cardstock. Place foam adhesive on the back of the cardstock to adhere it to the center of the 5.5” bottlecap.

Step8

 

 

Using a glue gun embellish the ornament with faux snow and holly and then hang it on your tree!

Step9

Thanksgiving Vignette & a ScanNCut Sponsored Giveaway! #BrotherBloggerBash

Thanksgiving - ScanNCut 1

 

I'm gearing up for Thanksgiving and created some projects for a vignette at my house.  I applied a design cut out of gold vinyl to a plate, and created a little sign using stamps. Now, I always get a lot of emails and questions about cutting out stamps, so hopefully this tutorial will help you learn some new cutting techniques!

 

Plate Supplies:

 

Frame Supplies:

 

Here's video instructions of how to create both projects.

 

Plate Instructions:

1.Insert the cutting mat with gold craft vinyl adhered to it. Download the cut file and load it onto your machine and then add a test cut.  When you do a test cut it will cut that out first, and then pause so you can evaluate how it cut out. You can then begin cutting out the design or adjust your settings and do another test cut.  
Thanksgiving - ScanNCut 1

2. After it has finished cutting remove the vinyl from the cutting mat and weed out the negative parts of the vinyl design.  It's supper handy to use your hook tool to get out the centers of letters.
Thanksgiving - ScanNCut 1

 

3. Cut a piece of transfer paper to be the same size as your design, remove it's backing, and then apply it to your design and rub it firmly so the vinyl will stick to the transfer tape.
Thanksgiving - ScanNCut 1

4. Remove the transfer paper and the design from the vinyl backing and apply it to the center of the plate.  Rub the transfer paper to adhere the vinyl onto the plate and then slowly peel up the transfer paper leaving the vinyl design on the plate.
Thanksgiving - ScanNCut 1

 

Sign Instructions:

Thanksgiving - ScanNCut 3

1. On a piece of cream cardstock stamp out various leaf patterns using different colors of ink.  Allow it to dry and then place the paper onto the cutting mat and insert it into the machine. Choose "Scan" then "Direct Cut" and scan in your stamped design.
Thanksgiving - ScanNCut 1

2. Crop the design selecting just the patterns you want to cut out. Next, click on the "offset" feature button. This is where the magic happens of choosing if you want a border around your stamped image, have it cut right along the edge of the image, or cut inside the edge of the image.  Isn't it cool that you get to choose your preference! -I love it!

So for this project I cut the majority of the solid leaf patterns using an "inward offset" of "-0.02" and for the more open stamped images I used "0.00" so it would just around the edge.

Thanksgiving - Step6

Here is how it looks when it's cut out:

Enjoy decorating your home!

DIY Fall Earrings

Cinnamon Gelatos - DIY Fall Earrings

These fall earrings were really fun to make and I love how they turned out. Often times larger earrings are heavy, but because I paper-mached these they are really light and easy to wear.

To start off with, I used my ScanNCut to cut out this shape out of a thin piece of chipboard...it happens to be a Christmas ornament shape that's built into the machine. Shhhh, don't tell.  
Cinnamon Gelatos - DIY Fall Earrings

 

Next, I took a lot of layers of ripped up tissue paper and adhered it to the shape with Gel Medium. I allowed it to dry between layers and just continued to build it up to the thickness I wanted.
Cinnamon Gelatos - DIY Fall Earrings

 

I even devised a clever way to allow them to dry by bending paperclips and hanging it off of one of my tool baskets.
Cinnamon Gelatos - DIY Fall Earrings

 

Next, I mixed up some of the Gelatos Color of the Week, Cinnamon, and a little bit of Glaze and applied it to the earring bases. I allowed it to dry and then repeated that process until it was the desired look I wanted.
Cinnamon Gelatos - DIY Fall Earrings

 

After they had thoroughly dried overnight, I took just a tiny bit of the Gold Texture Luxe and applied it to the earrings. Oh how I love Texture Luxe!
Cinnamon Gelatos - DIY Fall Earrings

 

I applied it with a damp (not dripping wet) finger to the earrings so that it really just transferred onto the high points of the folds of texture. I also applied it along the edge as well.

I added a few beads and fishhook earrings and voilà, they are ready to wear!

Cutting Wool Felt With Your ScanNCut

Fall Wool Felt Applique Emberoidery Tutorial

Yay, fall is just about here and I'm excited to welcome in the cooler weather of my favorite time of year.  Autumn always reminds me of comfort and so when I was trying to think of a project to create that symbolizes all those warm, fuzzy, comfy things, I thought what could be better represent that then a wool felt applique project!

 

 

Here's a video of how it all come together:

 

 

Supplies: 

 

Instructions:

Step 1 - Write "happy" onto a piece of scrap paper and then scan it into the ScanNCut using the "Scan To Cut Data" option and then save your design.

Fall Wool Felt Applique2

Step 2 -  Press the home button and then open up your design by going to "patterns" and then "saved data".  Unify the letters so you're able to move them anywhere on your screen.

Unify1

Prepare your felt by ironing Heat N Bond onto the backside of it. Once your design is unified you can then apply your felt to the mat and scan it into the machine so you can line up your word "hello" exactly where you want it.

Wool Felt Applique step 2


Step 3 -
Insert the fabric pen into the pen holder and insert that into the ScanNCut. Use the "draw" option instead of "cut" to draw the design onto the felt.
Fall Wool Felt Applique2

 

Step 4 - Choose the designs and colors of felt that you want to use and then cut them out using the Deep Cut Blade on your ScanNCut. Make sure you do a test cut first to ensure you're cutting through the felt but not through your mat.  If your mat gets too much lint on it from the felt use a baby wipe to gently clean it off then allow it to dry and it will be good to continue using.

Step 5 - Iron your designs onto your felt (the one you wrote "hello" onto) and then have fun embroidering it!

Happy scanning, cutting, and embroidering!

Autumn Leaves

This week's Gelatos® color is Red Cherry and I thought it would be really fun to use that in an autumn project.

Autumn Leaves - by Erin Bassett

 

I got started on it by decoupaging a canvas panel with a music sheet and Gel Medium. I then applied Red Cherry and Blood Orange Gelatos to it and used Gel Medium to move it around my background....I ended up layering up a few layers this way so that the colors would be intense.

Gelatos on decoupaged canvas

 

Next I put on a layer of Glaze...I love how glossy that makes it! I used a rubber stamp to make an impression in it while it was still wet, however by the time my project was finished there I had covered it up....but it is a cool technique to use!
Stamped impression in Glaze

 

For the leaves I used my die-cut machine to cut out a leaf shape out of black cardstock and then mixed together some Whipped Spackle and Gold Texture Luxe™. Mixing these creates a different color and texture but still has a metallic shine.  After they were mixed I added some Gold Champagne Gelatos to half of it...this really bumped up the metallic look of it and darkened it some too. Before it dried I used a pencil to etch in some vein lines.

I did the same technique using Whipped Spackle, Copper Texture Luxe, and Iced Chai Gelatos to it for the other leaf.
Mixing Texture Luxe and Whipped Spackle

 

The bookplate I used was originally silver, and I wanted it to be copper, so I took just a dab of the copper Texture Luxe and added a couple of drops of water to it and then applied it.  After that dried I rubbed ink from the Walnut Brown #177 Big Brush Pen into the recessed parts.
Bookplate and Copper Texture Luxe



I then took a small piece of black cardstock and covered the front side of it with 3 layers of Chalkboard Paint and allowed it to dry before writing on it with chalk ink. I applied some Chalkboard Paint around the edge of the canvas as well to create a frame.

After everything was dry I wrapped some string and beads around the right edge to finish it off.

Creating a Monogrammed Picnic Blanket

Creating your own, one of a kind picnic blanket is really simple using your ScanNCut, and it would make a great gift!

  Picnic Blanket2

Supplies:

Optional Supplies:

If you create your own blanket you will need the following supplies, however you can always alter a store bought blanket instead of sewing your own

Instructions:

Follow along with the written instructions below, or view the video on how to create it here:

 

 Step 1: If you decide to create your own blanket using canvas fabric, hem in the edges.
Picnic Blanket - Step1a

 

Step 2:  Import the Ant.fcm file into ScanNCutCanvas and wirelessly transfer it to your ScanNCut.
Picnic Blanket - Step2 -Import2


Picnic Blanket - Step2 -Import
Picnic Blanket - Step2 -Import

 

Step 3: I created the cut file with the eye being a separate piece so you could adapt the design as you desire. If you plan on using the design as I did you will need to unify the ant's eye and body before resizing it. To do that click on the button with the three red squares.

Picnic Blanket - Step1a

Select both the eye and the body.
Picnic Blanket - Step1a

And then click on the Unify button.
Picnic Blanket - Step1a

 

Step 4: Apply the Iron-On Transfer Film onto the mat with the film side up. Insert it into the machine and click on the scan button.

After the scan is complete you will be able to see both the film and the design and then you can resize, multiply, rotate, and then move the design as desired to fit as many as you can onto your film.  Then cut out the designs so that the blade only cuts the film and not the backing.
Picnic Blanket - Step1a

 

Step 5: Weed out the negative parts of the film and then cut the ants apart so they can be transferred onto the fabric.

Picnic Blanket - Step1a

 

Step 6:  Following the instructions on the package, heat up the fabric with an iron and then place the ant design onto it with the backing side up. Cover it with a pressing cloth and iron for approximately 30 seconds. Allow it to cool and then remove the backing.
Picnic Blanket - Step1a

 

Step 7: Use fabric paint to paint in the whites of the eye.
Picnic Blanket - Step1a

Continue on until all the ants are finished.

Step 8: For the monogram, cut out the letters you desire along with ants to carry them off with. Follow the same instructions above to adhere them onto the center of the fabric.

Get Your Patriotic Decor Ready!

Patriotic

It's that time of year again for us in the USA to dust off our patriotic decor for the upcoming summer patriotic holidays to pay tribute to those who have sacrificed to give us the freedoms we have and then to celebrate our independence.  How's your decor holding up? Do you need to replace some of it?

Here are a few various patriotic projects you can quickly whip up using craft vinyl and your ScanNCut.  When working on multiple projects at once I like to plan out what designs I'm going to need cut out of each color of vinyl and get them all organized on the same "mat" in ScanNCut canvas and then send them over to my ScanNCut using the wireless transfer.  -I love that new feature! While previously using a USB stick to bring my designs back and forth from ScanNCutCanvas to my ScanNCut wasn't hard, THIS is even easier and faster!

 

Supplies:

 

Instructions:

You can watch this video of the whole process, or follow along with the instructions below:

 

1. Load your designs onto the ScanNCut and cut them out. Be sure to do a test cut first to ensure you are only cutting through your vinyl and not through the backing.

Test Cut (1)

2. Weed the negative areas out of the vinyl design.Weed Vinyl1

Repeat until they are all weeded and ready to be used.
Weed Vinyl1

3. If you've cut out any embellishing designs (like I did with the stars in the example below) use transfer paper to layer them on top of your vinyl design. 
Weed Vinyl1

4. Apply transfer paper over the entire design, burnish it well with your spatula, remove it from the backing, then take it to your project, burnish it again, and then remove the transfer paper.  I really like using the clear grid transfer paper because it makes it much easier to line things up.
Weed Vinyl1

You don't always need to use transfer paper though. If your design is simple, and you want a random pattern, just use your vinyl cut outs like a sticker and place them where every you'd like.

And snap, we're done! Such fast projects!

The Perfect Mother's Day Gift

Mother's Day Glass Etched Jewelry Box - Title

Mother's Day is right around the corner and if you are looking for a beautiful gift that is personalized just for her, this is it! It's a meaningful way to forever treasure a child's handwriting...and it's practical too!

Supplies:

 

Instructions:

1. Have your child write out the word she'd like to put on the jewelry box.
Mother's Day Glass Etched Jewelry Box - Title

 

2.  Scan the paper in using the "Scan To Cut Data" function on the ScanNCut.  Once it's scanned in you can select all the letters, unify them, and resize them if necessary and then save the design.

3.  Remove the paper from the mat and place the vinyl onto it. Adjust the ScanNCut blade setting (doing a test cut if necessary) and then cut out the design.

4. Remove the vinyl from the mat and weed out the parts of the design that you are not using.  Mother's Day Glass Etched Jewelry Box - Weed Vinyl

 

5. Place a piece of adhesive transfer paper over the vinyl design and burnish it with your ScanNCut spatula or other tool to cause the vinyl to stick to the transfer paper.  Next, peel off the transfer paper and place it onto the glass of the jewelry box. Burnish it again to cause the vinyl to adhere to the glass and then remove the transfer paper.

6. Cover the edges of the jewelry box with tape to protect it and then apply a thick layer of etching cream over the entire surface of the glass. Make sure you spread it evenly and get it into the corners well.

7. Wait the amount of time instructed on the etching cream directions and then remove the etching cream. I find the easiest way to do it is to gently scrape it off with a pallet knife and then to use baby wipes to remove it from the glass.

8. Next, remove the vinyl from the glass and clean off the whole glass surface with water and a clean towel.  

You now have the perfect gift to show Mom how loved she is!
