Video : DIY Window Clings Silhouette Studio Tutorial

One of the new materials that Silhouette recently released is Printable Window Cling Material (both clear and white), and I love that this material allows us to create our own, custom window clings for holidays, seasons, and other occasions where you want to add a little bling to the ol’ windows.

I found the Window Cling Material to be easy to work with, and both the printing and cutting went very smoothly. I was a little worried that the ink might not be dry after the page finished printing, but it was completely dry pretty much immediately after printing. I left it for a minute or so before cutting it, though, just in case.

The images that I used are in a pastel color scheme, and they were very light on the clear cling material, but they stood out much better on the white cling material since it’s opaque. So, I recommend going with images that are brighter and/or darker if you’re using the clear cling material. Lots of possibilities with this material, and I’m excited that I can make my own window clings for Halloween, Christmas, or even National Cheeseburger Day if I want to! By the way, National Cheeseburger Day is September 18th this year, just so you know.

In the video below, I’ll walk you through designing print and cut pages for window clings with either PNG files or SVG files in Silhouette Studio, so you’ll be able to make custom window cling designs whether you have the free (PNG) version or one of the premium versions (PNG or SVG) of Silhouette Studio. This tutorial can be applied to any print and cut designs, so if you want to make stickers, cardstock elements for cardmaking or scrapbooking, or decorations and signage for parties you’ll want to watch this, too.

Silhouette Studio Tutorial : Print & Cut + Die Cut Birthday Card

Silhouette Design Studio Tutorial : Make a Print & Cut + Die Cut Birthday Card

This clean and simple birthday card project uses elements from the new Happy Birthday Digital Patterns and Birthday-versary Digital Stamps + Borders Die Cuts Set for a look that’s guy-friendly but doesn’t scream “guy card”.

To make the card, I first set up the print & cut card panel (size: 2.75 inches wide by 4 inches tall) in Silhouette Studio. Then, I printed it onto Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock and cut it with my Cameo. I cut the numbers from the light aqua solid digital paper in the Happy Birthday patterns set, the candle-topped numbers from a mid-gray colored cardstock, and the larger card panel (size: 3.25 inches wide by 4.5 inches tall) from the Hand Lettered Happy Birthday pattern in the light aqua colorway.

Instead of using the pattern fill option in Silhouette Studio, I pre-printed a page that was set up with half the page as the solid color and half with the pattern, and I ended up having to trim off a bit from the patterned panel because I wasn’t happy with a blank area on the panel when the panels were layered. If I had used the pattern fill option in Silhouette Studio, I would’ve had more control over the placement and scale of the pattern in the panel, so I’d probably set it up that way if I were doing it again.

After all of the pieces were cut, I adhered the numbers on top of the candle-topped numbers with Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue and adhered the two card panels together with a double-sided adhesive runner before adhering them to an A2 card base, also using the double-sided adhesive runner. I attached the numbers to the smaller card panel with dimensional foam adhesive that I cut to fit and, as a final touch, I covered the candle flames with Platinum Stickles.

Check out the video below for a step-by-step, including everything that I did to set up the card elements in Silhouette Studio:
