Yes! You read that title correctly!
I’m giving away a Silhouette Mint! Woo Hoo!
It’s really easy to enter. Just leave a comment below telling me what your favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner is, note in the Rafflecopter box below that you commented, and your name is on the list! (If you’re reading this email in your inbox and the Rafflecopter app is missing, just click here to go right to the Nikki, In Stitches site!) I’ll randomly pick a winner Thanksgiving morning, and one of you will have even more to be thankful for this year!
I’ve gotten things started with a comment of my own. Scroll down to take a peek!
If you’re curious about the Mint, I’ll have a video up on my YouTube channel soon, but for now, let me give you the most important thing you need to know…It. Is. Awesome!
This little machine creates a stamp that you then mount on a block permanently. It actually carves your design into the material…there is no transferring of the stamping material like some of you may remember from the “stamping starter kit” Silhouette also sells. This very different process lets you create stamps with MUCH MORE intricate detail. The stamp that I created in that picture up there??? It’s less than an inch wide! See what I mean about the detail?
And how you ink the stamp is also VERY DIFFERENT!
You apply the ink to the stamp color by color…just spreading the color throughout the area you’d like, doing your best to not let your colors bleed into each other. (Have you ever seen those videos of people flooding cookie designs with royal icing? Think of it just like that!) By my second stamp I already had a few tricks up my sleeve for the best way to apply the ink and it was a piece of cake!
Let your stamp sit just for a few minutes so that the inks absorb into it.
And by stamp away, I mean stamp away FOR REAL! I must have stamped this guy thirty times and still have not yet needed to re-ink him!
See what I mean? So awesome. This is perfect for those of you that like to stamp your kids names on the backs of their art projects before you tuck them away in your “memory box.” Or if you have your own business and like to stamp your logo on your receipts. If you have a favorite birthday cake design you use on your handmade cards. You get the idea. Any time you stamp the same thing lots of times…this is perfect for you!
BUT WAIT! One more thing before you comment!
Set a reminder in your phone to check back here later in the week (Thanksgiving if you’ve got time between your stuffing and pumpkin pie, or the day after if you prefer to have a “screen free” Turkey Day) because I’ll have all the details for the HUGE Silhouette Black Friday sale. I PROMISE YOU! IT’S A GOOD ONE!
