For this week's blog hop, I will show you how I have used Super Star Peel-and-Stick stamps in my projects.
To learn more about PSA Essentials stamps, just click here to read about my first experience with them.
For today's project, I made this:
I used Make-the-Cut to trace the ribbon and the chalkboard from Lettering Delights' Class Act graphics set. All the cuts were made with the Silhouette SD.
I thought that the ribbon was too pretty to not be used for anything other than an element for a card. So I made it into a magnet!
To make the ribbon magnet stay in place on the card, I stuck a washer to the back of the "chalkboard". The "chalkboard" was then adhered to the card front with foam tape. Not only did that add dimension, it also provided enough depth for the washer so that it does not crush the "chalkboard" layer.
See how pretty the magnet looks on my magnetic board. :-)
By the way, I used Lettering Delights' LD Chalky font to "write" on the chalkboard before printing-and-cutting that layer out. I love this font! It is currently available on the Lettering Delights' website as part of the School Spectacular Font Set. If you are a teacher or if you homeschool, you must check out this 45-set bundle! Just click here to take a look.
I also used the LD Chalky font to create the border around the chalkboard. I used Make-the-Cut's "wrap text to path" tool to do that.
Here is a video tutorial that will show you how I used Make-the-Cut to create that alphabet border.
By the way, MTC v.3.3.3 has been released and it fixed some bugs that were in v.3.3.2. You can download v.3.3.3. from this link. Just click on the "Download" button. If you are not familiar with Make-the-Cut, just click here and click on the "Download" button to try the program for free.
