3 Ways to Make a Silhouette Card

Filed under: Projects — July 30, 2020 @ 3:17 pm

The Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin kit and beautiful add-on cards are just crying out for silhouettes.  Fortunately, Stampin’ Up! has many stamp sets that will do the trick.   Here are 3 ways to make a silhouette card.

1. Just stamp a solid (or mostly solid) stamp in black ink.  (My favorite is Tuxedo Black Memento).

Here I used the Whale Done stamp set.  You can’t get much easier than this!

I also tried:  My Meadow, Sending Sunshine and Life is Beautiful.

2.  For a detailed stamp such as this sailboat, color over the image with a black Stampin’ Write Marker or Stampin’ Blends Marker.

Here I used the Sailing Away stamp set.

3.  Add a punched out shape or die-cut from black cardstock to  add an eye catching layer to your card.

In the Pines is a new stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog.  Just swap out the sentiment for the included “Season’s Greetings” for an easy Christmas card to make in multiples.

And finally, here are a few of the postcards I made with the Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin kit itself:

Tip:  If you want to make the postcards into a full card, just layer onto a Thick Whisper White Cardstock base as I did in the moose and the sailboat cards above.

Both the Summer Nights kit refill and the Summer Nights Add-On cards and envelopes are available only while supplies last.

All the stamp sets and dies I used to make these silhouette cards can be found at my Stampin’ Up! shop.  I hope you enjoy making your own silhouette cards!
