Brother ScanNCut – Cutting the Inside & Outside of Stamped Images

By PaperedChef, February 22, 2018

Ingredients:

Recipe:

In this tutorial, I demonstrate how to cut out the inside and outside of stamped images using the Brother Scan N’ Cut. For this tutorial, I used the Seaside Shore stamp set by Stampin’ Up. I stamped the anchors in Dapper Denim ink onto Whisper White card stock. I used a blade depth of 5. First, I used the Scan to Cut Data feature and saved the inside and outside of the anchor. Then, without removing the mat, I retrieved the save data. I then I cut out the stamped images and the holes in the top of the anchor were cut out. Now I can use them for tags.

In this tutorial, I demonstrate how to cut out the inside and outside of stamped images using the Brother Scan N’ Cut. For this tutorial, I used the Crafting Forever stamp set by Stampin’ Up. I stamped the scissors in Basic Black ink onto Whisper White card stock. I used a blade depth of 5. First, I used the Direct Cut feature to cut out the scissors with an outline distance. Then, I left the scissors on the mat and did not remove the mat for the next step. Next, I used Scan to Cut Data feature. I used the second option which saves the inside and outside of the scissors. I selected just the top region of the scissors and saved that region. I saved the file to the Brother ScanNCut and then clicked on the Home button. I selected the Pattern option and retrieved the scissors. I then went into editing mode to remove everything but the inside of the scissors. I zoomed in so that my viewers could see what was saved. After clicking OK, I cut out just the inside of the scissors. At this point, I removed the mat to show my crafty friends the finished product. What may seem like a lot of steps is worth it in the end because your cut images will look professional and you will not need to spend time fussy cutting.

    Great tutorial! I’ve been looking for a way to get an “outline distance” or margin on the inside cutout. Like for example for the scissors you demonstrated how to cut out the circles inside the handle, but they are right on the line. Is it possible to cut out the circles with a margin?
    Thanks!!

    Thanks Nicole, I’m sure it is possible to do easily. The only way I know how to do it now is to manipulate the cut data that is saved by scaling it down. I’m trying to figure out an easy way to do it without any witch craft, magic spells or trickery. Once I figure it out, I will be sure to post a video tutorial showing how to do it.
