Digital Stamps and the Silhouette Cameo

I have been asked to help out the
QKR Stampede and Eureka Stamps
Technique and Tutorial Team.
So I posted yesterday over on the
QKR Stampede blog the following tutorial.

I have also been asked if my Cricut is headed out to pasture.
It certainly is tucked back a tad farther and has not seen the
light of day for a while because the Silhouette Cameo is just that AWESOME!
I love to use digi stamps and digitally color them using PSE10 so it is a perfect
fit for  my design style.
If you have not check into this yet now would be a great time;)

Hello and welcome to this weeks tutorial post.
I am Sara and today I will show you how you can use
your wonderful digital stamps with the Silhouette Cameo design software and cutter. 
(Click on any  photo below to see actual size.)

For the tut today I am using:

** I will be working with a pre-colored 
digi stamp however, if you like to hand color
your digi stamps the process is exactly the same just open
the downloaded digi file for the first step.  
Sadly, I gave Copics a go and it totally was not my thing so I stick
to what I know and love my Adobe software AI and PSE;) 

Here is my finished card, a CAS creation that looks just fab...

 Below you see the printed digi stamps on the carrier mat.  **I did go back and included the basic digi stamp uncolored.  

 Below you see the cut digi stamp images still on the carrier sheet.  The excess paper has been removed...

The nicely cut digi stamp and some dimensional foam tape meet a CAS thank you card...

Thanks for stopping by today;)

OMgosh, that card is so darling! Great tutorial, and of course anything that means I don't have to trim an image is a great thing in my book! Sigh. I suppose someday I will have to get a Silhouette.
