We Must Celebrate

No comments
Hello Crafty Friends!   

Most of you know I love using my electronic machine with Stampin' Up! products, especially when it comes to doing large jobs. My electronic machine is my helper when I have classes.

This past weekend, my hubby purchased a Brother Scan N' Cut2 for my valentine's / birthday gift. He is so thoughtful and everyday I love him more and more! He is a very supportive man when it comes to my creative side.

You probably ask why I need another electronic cutter. The answer is simple. It does different things. My first cutter can cut twice as fast when doing large classes however it does not do the fussy cuttings as easily. It takes longer to extract the images and cut. 

Here I just stamp and cut. You can see the image below as this is my first try. It cuts some images around it, and some inside the outline. A few more practice and I will be good to go. 
The Brother Scan N'Cut2 now eliminates the extracting part. It scans and cuts (just like the naming of the machine) images after they are stamped. It takes me longer to color the images than to fussy cut. Usually it is the reverse. Now I can make multiple cards quickly. 
If you are just starting to use electronic cutters, there is a learning curve. I highly recommend you visit all the YouTube Channels with respect to your machine. With me, I plunged into it immediate and took me 3 days to get the use of cutting the images. Still a learning curve, but one step at a time.

Today's card share is playing with the We Must Celebrate and Always & Forever stamps.


Betcha you didn't think of using these sets! 

I stamped the tree trunk with Soft Suede Ink on Whisper White cs. The We Must Celebrate critter friends are stamped with versamark and embossed with Black Embossing Powder and cut with the Scan N'Cut. Then they are colored with the Stampin' Blends.

I pieced 8 cards just under an hour after cutting and coloring.

How To Video ...

I have a video on how this card is made with the Scan N'Cut but is not the best. I had to do a voice overlay because my mic was echoing throughout and it was not up to my standard so I do apologize in advance.

If you have any questions, please email me.
