OAK TREE STAMPS COORDINATING FILES

Hey Everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations!

Well as many of you know we just launched OAK Tree Stamps and one thing we are very excited about are the Coordinating Files that you are able to purchase to use with the stamps or as stand alone designs with your favorite cutting machine!


Well we have had a lot of questions on what these Coordinating Files  are and how you can use them with either the stamp sets or as stand alone files. These files were designed for crafters who like the look of stamps, but might not enjoy the process of stamping. These files work perfect with any machine that supports PNG and SVG files and we designed them with the Print-Then-Cut feature in mind. The files also come with a Digital Die Cut that lines up perfect with the stamp sets.  Here is a video on what the Coordinating Files are, what you get, how to download them and how to use them with your Cricut Explore or Silhouette Cameo




We just love these Coordinating Files and we are excited to launch some new digital files very soon! Make sure you subscribe to our newsletter over at OAK Tree Stamps to make sure you do not miss out on any new product releases!!!

NEW SILHOUETTE CURIO & MINT

Okay I would lie if i said I was not intrigued by Silhouette America's little nugget they dropped today! You know that all of Facebook is buzzing right now. Silhouette announced some HUGE releases today. These include two new machine/tools to help with scrapbooking and some amazing new materials! You can see the entire release here:



The first release is something called the Silhouette Curio. According to Silhouette America:

 This machine is more than a cutting tool. It can cut, emboss, sketch, stipple, and etch—it’s like a Swiss Army knife for your craft room. Unlock powerful new creative capabilities like Print & Emboss, Score & Emboss and Deep Cut. 

It also looks like it still can use the cutting feature and the popular Print Then Cut. However it seems to be the only drawback is its limited size that it will be able to accommodate at only 8.5X6. It does however look as though you can buy a bigger plate to accommodate up to 8.5X12. 

This is a huge advancement as Silhouette Fans have been asking for a deep cut blade system for a while. This little machine looks like it will pack a punch and give craters so much more potential. 

HERE ARE SOME FAQ


The other exciting release was the new Silhouette Mint which seems to be a home based stamping system. According to Silhouette America:

The Silhouette Mint™ is the most innovative and powerful custom stamping system on earth. The machine’s special “thermal printing” feature lets you carve 3D reliefs of custom designs on Mint stamp sheets. Simply apply Mint inks to your stamp and you are ready to roll. Design it, Mint it, ink it, stamp it.

It looks like the Silhouette Mint will be a lot like another product I have been researching called the Casio Pomrie. Here is a video of that in action. Pay close attention to the machine at the end. 


Now I have not seen the silhouette mint nor test it, but I think this is the same concept that will be used!


Also it looks like the good news for all of us apple and android fans that we will be able to start designing on the go with New Silhouette Cloud and Mobile!!! It looks like you will be able to design from all different mobile devises or your computer and save it to the cloud and pick up where-ever you want.  

According to Silhouette the release schedule will be:

New materials announced will be availble late summer 2015. The Curio will be available starting September 2015. The Mint will be available starting October 2015. Silhouette Mobile and Silhouette Cloud will be availble later this Fall 2015.

Now Silhouette America also made a HUGE announcement regarding new materials to support all of these machines and their Silhouette Cameo! Make sure to click the link below to see all of their announcements!!!



Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel to make sure you see my reviews of these machines first when I am able to get my hands on them 

(Which does not look like they will be release to the public until Fall of 2015)

PUGS & KISSES

Hey Everyone Ken here with Ken's Kreations

Recently my sister-in-law had a birthday and she is a huge "PUG" fan so I wanted to make a card that featured a cute little pug. 


For this card I used my Cricut Explore Air and started with a card base from the Cricut Creative Cards Cartridge. For this specific card I used the card that features a bird on the center of the card, however I substituted the bird for a Pug File. This Pug File is part of the Scrappy Dew Vault program. If you want to find out what great benefits you get from this program, CLICK HERE.


I used the DCWV Cinnamon Stack for all the paper in this project. I raised the base layer from the second layer using CTMH 3D Foam Tape. I took some CTMH Twine and wrapped along the bottom of the second layer and behind my "Pugs & Kisses" sentiment. Along the scalloped border I used the Cinnamon Stickles Glitter Glue. I wrote the sentiment "Pugs&Kisses" using Pilot V5 Pens and the write feature of my Cricut Explore Air. The final item was printing the Pug File on my Epson Artisan 1430 and cutting it out on the Cricut Explore Air using the Print Then Cut feature. I raised the pug up with CTMH 3D Foam Tape.

FIREFIGHTER BIRTHDAY CARD

Hey Everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations.

Well I have a niece who is training to be a firefighter and for her birthday I wanted to make a very special birthday card for her. 


For this card I started with the star base card from the Cricut Creative Cards Cartridge. I kept all the elements except the star in the center of the card. I substituted the star for the Firefighter Birthday Image


Now for the two elements behind the  Firefighter Birthday Image. I printed these using the Print Then Cut feature on my Cricut Explore Air using the Brother Monochrome Laser. I needed to use this printer since I wanted to foil these elements. Once I had them printed I used my Scotch Thermal Laminator with Red Deco Foil and Pumpkin Deco Foil. If you are not sure on how to use this technique make sure to check out this video:



Once the foiling was completed I was able to move onto the Firefighter Birthday Image. I also used the Print Then Cut feature on my Cricut Explore Air. This time I used the Epson Artisan 1430. I raised the  Firefighter Birthday Image with 3D Foam Tape. To finish off the card I used the Candi Dots on each side of the card. I just love how this card turned out.
