Silhouette Sketch Pens and Promo Codes!

Friends, I have some incredibly exciting news to share with you!  Today through March 31, Silhouette is running a special promotion!  Which means, if you weren’t the lucky winner of the Silhouette giveaway {Audrey Dawkins}, you might want to pay special attention!

Did you know that not only can you cut with your Silhouette machine, you can draw too!  This particular promotion features the sketch pen starter kit, which gives you 24 colors of pens to play with.  If you purchase a “Cammie” of your own during the promo period, you save $30, plus you get the sketch pen starter kit too!  Or you can get a Silhouette Portrait for $60 off the regular price, plus the sketch pen starter kit.  If you already have your cutting machine, you can order just the pens for $12.99 {a $7 savings}.
To order, just go to the special promotion page and use this code when you check out!
PROMO CODE: ARTSY
I have a confession to make…even though I’ve had my beloved Cameo {“Cammie”} since Christmas, I had never played with the sketch pen option before, so I thought if I’m going to be promoting it, I better try it out to show you what these pens can do!  I decided for my first attempt to something festive and spring-y since Easter is right around the corner.  I’m also currently obsessed with the chalkboard effect {who isn’t, right?}, so I decided to make and Easter gift tag using the white sketch pen…check it out!
Easy Easter Gift Tags
Materials:
- black cardstock
- white Sketch pen
- glue/Mod Podge
- white glitter
- washi tape
- white pom-pom
- ribbon
- Silhouette Cameo
- Silhouette Studio software

STEP 1: Remove the cap from your Sketch Pen and place it where your blade normally goes.  Lock it into place, just like you usually do.  Then, feed your cardstock into the machine.

STEP 2: Create your design in Silhouette Studio.  I chose to write “happy easter” in a chalkboard font and I used the cute bunny that came as part of last week’s free shape of the week in the Silhouette online store.  

STEP 3: Time to draw!  Send the design to your Silhouette as usual, but first make sure you change your cut settings to show you’re using the Sketch Pen rather than the blade. 

Here’s how my happy little bunny looked when Cammie finished sketching.  *cute!!*
STEP 4: Create and cut your tag.  I grabbed a tag shape from my library, and first I put it around my created image to make sure it was the right size and page position for what I drew.  Then, I moved the bunny and the words off of the page {otherwise Cammie would cut them out} and I switched back to Blade mode before cutting.


STEP 5: Add washi tape and glitter!  I spread Mod Podge using a small paintbrush inside the bunny outline, then covered it with glitter.  

STEP 6: Finish it up using ribbon and a pom-pom tail!

Now it’s all ready to decorate your packages!

The Sketch Pens are so easy to use, and I’m excited about all the possibilities now that I have 24 colors to play with and can choose whether Cammie draws, cuts, or both!  Be sure to stay tuned for more Sketch Pen projects, because I’m sure I’ll have more for you soon!
In the meantime, if you’d like some Sketch Pens of your own and maybe even a Cameo or a Portrait to go with them, be sure to head on over to the promotion page and claim the deal before March 31!  This deal won’t be visible on the regular website, and can only be claimed with a special code, so be sure to enter ARTSY when you get to the designated page.  Enjoy the discounts!!
Hugs & Glitter,
P.S. In the spirit of full disclosure, I received a free set of Sketch Pens for this promotion.  However, as you know, my opinions about these Silhouette products are entirely my own.  It’s long been a goal of mine to one day be a Silhouette affiliate, and I couldn’t be happier to have the opportunity to share this deal and these products with you, as you know I love them!!

    Aww! I like your bunny! I have the best intentions to leave comments but always have to stop in the middle of everything- I’m lucky if I get 5 minutes at a time online-

    It might take me 3 visits but I read everything!

    Love that the bunny and it is nice that they are giving you a pen option. I think cricut only has markers. Keep creating cuteness girl.
