In this tutorial, I will teach you how to utilize one stamp for two different pattern designs, and how I used them to stamp the handles of these wooden spoons- Making cute, easy party decor only a few steps away!

When working in Mint Studio, the software opens many of the shapes by compressing them into a flattened image. But what if you want to keep all of the layers of your shapes so that you can arrange and manipulate them? No worries. Here is a quick work-around:

  • In Silhouette Studio, open the pattern designs you want to use on your stamp and save your file.

  • In Mint Studio, locate that file by choosing file > open. This will open both of your patterns in a Mint Studio window and allow you to size/scale them to fit your stamp.

  • Once you have your patterns sized and scaled, use the crop window in Mint Studio to crop them down to fit better on your stamp template. Depending on the size of the stamp you are using (I used the 45x90mm), line each pattern up so that it covers a little bit less than half of each side of your stamp. Leaving a slight gap in between patterns will allow for different color inks to be used without a bleed/crossover in patterns. It doesn’t matter if your pattern hangs over the edge in the Mint Studio window, it will be automatically cropped to size before it gets sent through your Mint.

  • Ready to make your stamp? Choose your stamp filter (I chose standard) and then select the Mint icon to begin your stamp printing process.

  • Once you select the mint icon, the send to mint window will be opened. Don’t be alarmed: Your design will automatically mirror in the window, so that your stamped design stamps the correct way.

  • From here, you can follow the step by step instructions in the window on your right hand side. Select Start Mint and insert the 45×90 stamp sheet into the back of your Silhouette Mint as illustrated. If you forget to connect your mint, there will be a warning to remind you! Allow your stamp sheet to move through the Silhouette Mint entirely before removing it from the front, once it is complete.

  • With your stamp sheet in hand, 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. I chose to go all black, but you could use a different color for each pattern.

  • For this project, I found it easiest to place my stamp face up on a sturdy surface and stamp the spoons onto the stamp, instead of the other way around. I love that the size of this stamp stops perfectly on the spoon handle to still allow for people to use without the ink getting near your mouth.

And there you have it! Alternate side to side on your stamp block and stamp away until you have the amount of flatware for your party. The best part is, with the magic of the Silhouette Mint, you can stamp up to 50 times before needing to reink your stamp. How awesome is that?

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!

  2. So cool!!!! I have plenty of pattern stamps from the good ol’ days of stamping, but I hadn’t thought of Minting my own with current Silhouette designs. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Cute idea! Where did you find such cute wooden spoons?

    1. Hi Kathy- Thanks! I got a bulk order of them at a shop in the city (Chicago) years ago, but I’m sure you can find some online somewhere!
