Brother ScanNCut Tutorial – Cutting Stamped Images – CM 350 Black & White and Color Recognition Mode

In this Brother Scan and Cut Tips and Tricks tutorial, you will learn how to cut stamped images using your Scan and Cut CM350 or ScanNCut 2. You can follow along with whichever model of ScanNCut you have. The stamp set used for this tutorial is Tasteful Touches by Stampin’ Up! I shared tips and tricks on how to cut out the flowers, springs and feathers from this stamp set. I shared troubleshooting techniques and tips for getting better results. I always try to use Black & White Recognition Mode first because it saves time and usually does the trick. These feathers were tricky and required Color Recognition Mode. That worked and I was able to successfully cut 49 of the 54 stamped feathers I stamped onto Whisper White cardstock. I also shared several cards and a mini pizza box I created I decorated using these stamps and several coordinating products. A full list of supplies is listed below.

  1. Good morning, Kim

    I wish you would show us how to cut images that have a dark or black background. We’ve pretty much figured out now how to do stamped images and cutting them out. Be nice to show use the other way as well. Please think about it.

    I have some great images but they are on a black background. How’s about some help there?

    thanks, Dolores

  2. Dolores, Cutting out images on a dark background is the same exact process. I have shown that in my online courses and I will show it on YouTube as well sometime.
