DIY Stamp Shadows on the Silhouette! (Part 2)



Now for part two!
In the first part of this tutorial, I showed you how I created my own stamps on the Silhouette. Click here if you missed it! Now, it's time to show you how to create it's shadow. This is the easy part!

I started off by opening up a new window in the Silhouette DSE and copied my image of the stamp I created in part 1. Next, I ungrouped it and deleted the writing, leaving only the outline.


Now it's time to create another offset of the outline. Just like below... I chose 0.1 in offset. Once you've got the offset delete the internal piece of the image.


Fill up your page with as many images as you like. I will only need 5. Check you cut line settings, make sure that your images are not overlapping each other. Since I will be cutting these out of a colored card stock there is no need for the registration marks.


Save your work. I will call this file Christmas stamp shadows... that way I know which part needs to be printed and which part I can just cut out!

So here is the card I made using this stamp! Pretty, isn't it? I love how it turned out and how the stamp goes so well with it! For the rest of the details on this card refer to my previous post, here.


Hope you enjoyed this tutorial on how to make your own stamps on the Silhouette! Would love to see your creations if you do end up making any!

Happy crafting and stamp designing :)
