Silhouette Mint


With this little guy (and by little I mean it fits in the palm of your hand) you can use designs from your library and create your very own stamps.  There are so many applications spinning in my head, but one of my first mint projects was this card. Just two stamps, but look at all of the color!




With Mint, you’re not using a typical ink pad, which makes multicolored stamping easy. The Silhouette Mint uses 5 ml bottles of ink that you apply to your stamp. The stamp will then absorb the ink, and you can stamp approximately 50 images before the stamp dries up! After that, just add a few more drops of ink and you’re ready to go again.

  1. it does sound like fun! I got lotsa ideas! (Great gifts I am thinking!!)

  2. Is the ‘stamp’ itself mounted on a block?
    Only S. Inks can be used? No ink pads?
    I watercolor a lot with my stamps…how does this work for an empty image?
    Can’t wait to see these in action!

  3. Can’t wait to see this. This sounds like it would be great when creating a lot of cards–such as Christmas, wedding, etc.

  4. Why yes, yes it does sound fun. I agree with Sue above. I think I need this for my Christmas cards this year!

  5. This is perfect! But I Think the you can do “White INK”, then we can to use in black papers.

  6. I would love to see this baby in action! I’m still not clear on how it works… I like crisp juicy ink impressions and it’s hard do tell if it doesn’t do that well or if a watercolor type font was used… Can it be used successfully with other brands of ink reinkers/refills with the stamps produced?

    1. Hi Mendi, You can definitely get a crisp stamp, but because of the type of stamp the mint machine creates, it does require the mint inks.

  7. Will there be ink to stamp fabric or can the mint inks stamp on fabric as well?

    1. Hi Carla,

      You can stamp on fabric, but the ink is not permanent so you wouldn’t want to wash it.

  8. When the ink is used and I want to apply more ink for additional stamping can I use different color ink or would the new ink cause a coloring problem with the old ink?

    1. Hi Kati! Thanks for the comment. You can change the color of the inks. Just make sure that you stamp out all the excess before adding the new ink, otherwise the colors might blend. Also, taking your stamps from a lighter color to a darker color is easier than taking them from darker to lighter. Make sure to check back at the blog for Mint Week, September 28th-October 2nd.
