This tutorial will take you step by step through the process of using fonts from the online store to create a custom return address stamp in minutes. Some of the hidden gems in the Silhouette Design Store are the fonts, so go take a peek. There are so many to pick from, and even more ways they can be used.

 

Steps:

 

  • In Mint Studio, select the correct stamp size on the right hand side under the stamp settings window. Mine is the 30 x 60mm rectangle.

 

  • To begin laying out your text, choose the font you would like to use from the text style window. Be sure to check out all the available fonts in the Silhouette Design Store. The fonts I used are Scotch Tape and LW TALL.

  • Once your text is laid out to your liking, select the stamp filters window. (The painter’s tray icon) You can select through the different filters; I chose the standard option.

  • Ready to make your stamp? Select the Send to Mint icon. You will see that your design will automatically appear mirrored, this is suppose to happen. That way, when you stamp your image, it will be correct.

  • Connect your Silhouette Mint to your computer using the usb cord, and select start Mint. The best part about this window is that the process is written step by step on the right hand side, even reminding you to check your filter settings.
  • After pressing start Mint, you will be asked to insert your 30 x 60 stamp sheet into the mint, using the illustration on the right hand side of your Mint Studio window as a guide.

  • Insert your stamp sheet into the back of the Mint as directed, and it will automatically begin to feed your stamp sheet through the machine, imprinting your design along the way.

  • Once your stamp is done, fold the cardboard along the perforated line and remove the top layer of plastic from the black stamp pad until you can remove it from the sleeve.

  • Adhere your stamp to the stamp mount and slide it into the stamp grip (the wood block). With your stamp face up, apply the desired colored ink to your stamp design. Allow the ink to set for a few minutes, and stamp off the excess ink until your design is stamping clearly.

That’s it! Now you have a self-inking return address stamp that will last up to 50 times before needing to be reinked! Magic.

Hi friends, both old and new! My name is Brittany (of BSaz Creates) and I am so excited to be joining the Silhouette Creative Team for another year! Outside of the Creative Team, I am freelance designer and creative living out my life-long affair with crafts in Chicago, IL. I have used my Silhouette CAMEO for projects small and large. From invitations to storefront windows, Silhouette has expanded my capabilities as a one-woman design studio in so many ways. When I'm not working on a project (or even when I am) you can almost always find me eating ice cream and cuddling with my pint sized pup, Brody, who makes quite the appearance on my instagram. I can't wait to continue to share my projects with you all!
