Several of us have been asking the question..."Can I cut Stampin' Up! glimmer paper with my Silhouette Cameo?" I have to admit that I've been a little apprehensive to try it because I didn't want to damage my Cameo. However, I did give it a try and, as you can see, it works!
Here are the cut settings I used:
1) Select "Glitter Cardstock" as the material type.
2) The default number for the blade will be "6." I actually used "8" just to be on the safe side.
3) The default speed will be "3." I used "1" because the design is pretty intricate. It took a while for it to cut, but I just worked on something else in the meantime.
4) The default should be set to "double cut." Be sure to leave the box checked.
I'm sure my blade life has been shortened a little, but I always try to have an extra on hand.
I purchased the cut file at the Silhouette Online Store: http://www.silhouetteonlinestore.com/?page=view-shape&id=45594. I chose this particular image because the letters were attached to one another which means I didn't have to adhere each letter...it's one big piece.
Just a quick tip about adhering sequins. Using a paper piercer or straight pin, adhere your mini glue dot on the card front first and then add the sequin. You won't have sequins stuck to your fingers. :)
Here's everything I used:
Cantaloupe Crisp Card Stock
5-1/2x8-1/2 Card Base
Island Indigo Card Stock
Champagne Glimmer Paper
Birthday Basics DSP
5x3-3/4 Balloon Layer
Gold Sequin Trim
Glue Dots (Glimmer Letters & Sequins)
