Victorian Lantern created with Cutting Craftorium SVG files available on Create & Craft TV tomorrow

Brother ScanNCut shows coming on Create & Craft TV tomorrow with new Christmas SVG files from the Cutting Craftorium. There is also a coordinating CD with fabulous printables, and a bundle (CD and USB) with both collections.

There is so much on this Christmas USB for creating 3D home decor items for Christmas: sleigh, reindeer, rocking horse, boxes, napkin rings, lantern, crackers, cake stands, and wreaths but to name a few. I have not seen the optional CD with images and background papers to coordinate with the cutting files – will have to catch the shows tomorrow. It will probably be a must to add to my Christmas crafting collection.

This is a fabulous set of cutting files in SVG format. SVG files are so versatile and can be used on many other electronic cutters, not just the Brother ScanNCut, e.g. Silhouette (with the Designer Edition software).

Here is a brief tutorial for the Victorian Lantern show sample. Anne x.

Materials:

  • Christmas USB (SVG files) from the Cutting Craftorium
  • Brother ScanNCut CM300 cutting machine
  • 12 X 12 inch card approx 220gsm: White, light blue, Kraft card
  • Battery operated T Light
  • 4 X 6mm clear glass crystals, gold plated headpins and jump rings
  • Flat nosed and round nosed pliers (for adding crystal drops)
  • Fake snow (Pinflair Snow Dust)
  • Clear embossing powder with blue glitter (Debbi Moore Print Magic)
  • Gold ultra thick embossing granules (Debbi Moore Metal Magic)
  • Versamark Inkpad and embossing pen
  • Brown pencil
  • Glitter glue (aqua and crystal clear)
  • Gold gilding wax (Pebeo)
  • Acrylic glue (Cosmic Shimmer), 3D glue gel (Pinflair) and red liner tape (strong double sided)

How to make it:

It is a bit tricky to write an exact step by step but hopefully I have given enough info for you to make something similar and adapt it to your own taste x.

Generally my settings for around 220 gsm card is: Speed 5, cut pressure 0 or 1, blade depth 5 or 6. It will vary with card thickness and structure (density etc.). If you are a newbie, or trying out a new batch of card, use the test cut function to try out settings – then record for future reference.

Note: I have edited and resized various files to create this project. Remember to save the files as you go so that you can use them again. I reload designs as I go to judge and resize subsequent pieces.

AW Victorian Lantern 1

Load the star cake stand, group together, turn 45 degrees and enlarge all elements together to fit the 12 X 12 inch mat. Cut twice from blue card. Glue 2 layers together for added strength and leave dry. Note: I am using this upside down for my lantern stand.

Add Versamark ink to the stars and around the circular base, and heat emoss with thick gold embossing crystals. These give a nice vintage look. Slot together using a little acrylic glue to hold. Rub over some gilding wax. Note: keep the cut out star waste – great to use on another project.

AW Victorian Lantern 2

Load the Victorian Lantern, enlarge slightly, and cut 1 base and 8 sides from Kraft card. Trim the tab sections off 4 sides and glue to tabbed sections (for added strength), leave to dry. Apply Versamark ink and heat emboss with the clear glitter embossing powder. Drop on some of the gold embossing crystal and melt. Glue together and finish with some blue glitter glue and gilding wax.

Load the Victorian Lantern Ornate Detail and resize to fit the lantern window. Cut X8 from Kraft card. Glue 2 layers together and dry (4 finished pieces). Heat emboss with the gold crystals adding more layers for a smooth covered metallic finish. Glue to lantern.

I used elements from the Matchbox Dioramma (Woodland Reindeer Scene) to decorate the Lantern windows: Load the reindeer (Layer 4) and resize to fit lantern window. Cut X 4 from Kraft Card. Trim the antlers away from 2, glue 2 layers together (for added strength). Add a little shading with brown pencil and clear glitter glue for sparkle.

Load the grass border (Layer 5) and resize to wrap around the T Light. Add 4 more and resize to fit inside the lantern windows. Used double sided tape to cover the candle. Glue grass borders inside lantern windows. Glue the reindeer in place.

Load the trees (Layer 2) and resize to fit inside the lantern windows. Cut X 4 then trim with scissors and glue inside the windows.

Next add the little crystal drops to the ornate elements using headpins and jump rings. I trimmed the front one and pierced a hole to attach the crystal so that it hung above the reindeer. Note: if you prefer just use some thread and tie on your crystal drops. Flat backed gems would also look nice.

Cut some small tabs in waste blue card and use them to make small right angle brackets to glue the lantern to the base (these will be fairly well hidden under the lantern base).

Cut several sets of the Poinsettia in white card, Poinsettia Foliage (Poinsettia folder) in blue and Kraft card. Shape the elements lightly, layer up and decorate the lantern. Glue fake snow to the poinsettia centres.

Cut several sets of Holly Leaf and Berries from the Cracker Toppers (Crackers folder) in blue and Kraft card. Shape and use to decorate lantern as desired.

Finally finish with plenty of fake snow and glitter glue.

I have some news. My 3 months ‘trial’ on the Tattered Lace Design Team has arrived. I also had to make extra samples as part of the final round.

Terrified but delighted. Here is a sneak peek of my first assignment for the Brother cutting machine – something coming on Saturday on Create & Craft TV – maybe something cute?

Did anyone see the Brother ScanNCut show today on Create & Craft TV? Fabulous Style Boutique CD of images and USB with SVG cutting files. Loads of images for building scenes and for ‘dress up dolls’. I raced a couple of samples through for the shows – another on tomorrow if you missed it. Such fun.

SVG format means that you can use them in many other cutting machines too. I have a Silhouette Cameo and they can be opened in Silhouette studio Designer Edition. The CD has jpegs and png which you can edit, resize, re-colour etc, in My Craft Studio, or they can be imported into Serif Craft Artist – or whichever is your favourite digital software.

I will blog some step by steps for my projects over the weekend.
