Today I’m excited to be sharing my first project using my new Silhouette Curio. As a first time user, I was nervous about the learning curve with a new machine. Can I just say that my fears were unfounded? Not only are there various video tutorials on the Silhouette blog to get your started, but after I plugged in my machine and designed my stippled project in the software, it told me exactly what mats I needed to use, what cut settings to use, and even which tool per color to place my sketch pens.

To create this art, I used the stippling feature and sketch pens in copper and orange. The stippling added little shadows and highlights that created depth to my word art. After completing the stippling, I then replaced the pens with a blade and cut out my design on the cutting mat.

After weeding out the excess card stock, I applied the design to wood paper. There are so many new and exciting ways to create using the Curio and I am bursting with excitement at all the possibilities.

Hello! I am Marie from Blooming Homestead and I have a passion for all things crafty, this includes home decorating, organization, digital design, DIY, and cooking yummy comfort food! As a recent first time home buyer, I enjoy making our house into a home while sticking to a budget (gotta love those student loans!) This usually requires me to think outside the box and get creative. I love sharing my tutorials and projects in hopes that I can inspire others. When I am not crafting, I like to read, shop, watch movies, and visit with family & friends. Most importantly, I love spending time with my husband of 12 years and our two children who keep us on our toes.

  1. I hadn’t thought of using stippling as accents on lettering. Clever you!
