RGB difference between 350H and CM550DX
Here is what it looks like using my older scan n cut without having the RGB feature like in the newer 350H.
What I did because I do not have any brown colored paper. I colored a piece of Spectrum noir card stock using my microsoft word program. I used Tan Background 2 Darker 75%. I stamped using black ink. Here are the results of my scanning in and cutting. I used the photo scan mat for the scan n cuts to scan in my test. The difference between this mat and the other cutting mats is that there are no lines on it and you can not cut on it. Just used to scan in photos or your own designs. Sorry about the glare from my flash.
This is the first picture using the photo mat.
This next picture is what the mermaid looked like for cutting and part of the sun and moon.
Next picture is moving into the cut lines of the sun and moon stamp to cut it out.
Next picture is showing just the out line of the design and this is how it looks on my machine. With the RGB you will now be able to actually see it as you are cutting it. Notice how it just shows the rectangle and no design.
Next picture is the stamp cut out but not removed from the paper.
Last picture is of the two stamps I did as you see one did not show up as well as the sun and moon stamp. I had to hand cut out the Mermaid. But the scan n cut did cut out the sun and the moon.
So now with the new feature on the new scan n cut models you will not have that problem anymore. With that said I do not think that black ink on black paper will work. However I think you could use red or maybe purple ink. Not sure as I do not have the new machine. On white paper or light paper you do not have this problem as it shows in black and white. The little designs that are included in the machine are in color. So I do not think there would be a problem like this with cutting them out.
Well there you have it to show you a comparison from the old to the new.
I also understand that the 350 scan n cut will be out for sale on October 1, 2015. I did see them up on the manufactures page listed with the price range and what accessories you get with the new models.
Hope you liked my little presentation and if you have any questions if I can answer them I will.
Your HSN friend,
Yeah, that’s what I do Skittles…..you just have to read the fine print.
Speaking of E…they are doing free shipping on all purchases made on the E card again – woo-hoo! Even clearance. :heart:
Yes there are several sites which come up when you do a HSN coupon search. Couponcheif always had the coupons first and the others showed the same coupons days later.
I did not get my coupon from that site.
There several sites that have coupons for HSN..
I have bought clearance items this past week from HSN, so I am not
looking for HSN coupons lately.
I have been spending time shopping E because they sent me coupons.
Their coupons work on clearance items.
Skittles, if you read the terms and details the current coupons are for new customers only. Couponcheif has disappeared. That was the site that posted all of the coupons in the past.
When you google HSN coupons, you should see several links.
With in these links, you will find several choices in coupons.
I am not a new customer. I recently saved 8 dollars off a 40 dollar purchase.
Thanks Skittles135, however, the coupon on Google is only for new subscribers.
Seems that I can not edit my last post so I will add this information here.
Stenciling with the new stencil sheet/sheets. For those that are into interior decorating. You can use this to stencil boarders or designs on to painted walls. There are many many new designs in the cm650w just for stenciling they look pretty nice. I have printed out the design booklet for that machined just to see what the new designs are. I really do like the added new designs.Plus the 15 new fonts etc. They also have lettering designed for stenciling too.
Now with stenciling any type of paper etc can be used to make a stencil. I have already done this with card stock and computer copy paper. It is the negative cut that one uses for the stencil.
As you die cutting machine folk know you get two cuts with your cut. A positive and negative cut.
Well happy crafting as now is the time to get ready for the Holidays coming.
Your HSN friend,
Just a heads up. I just ordered the stamp kit for snc machines that is a pre order. I also order the stencil sheet. I also saw the middle tack mat 12×24. I am thinking however that right now it is a bit pricey.
Also I gave an incorrect price for the cm350R it is 299.00 plus free shipping. Like I said it too is a pre order.
With the stamp kit you get I believe 100 designs plus the stamp material and an acrylic block to use with the created stamp. I am not sure as to when I will get that but the stencil sheet/sheets will be here next week. so we will see.
The 10 pk 12×12 assorted colors of vinyl is also up but is also pre order. I did not get that yet because I am really looking for heat applied vinyl for clothing and these seemed to be for wall decor and decals and glass etching etc. For that you also need the vinyl transfer sheet. I am holding off for now.
Just thought I would let those who are interested in the snc2 and these new items that they are starting to come up for sale.
Your HSN friend,
Thank you for stopping by this thread. I am glad to see you here. Did you ever get the scan n cut2 sold on HSN? You know the 350H that was the today’s special when it aired? I know you had a question for me did you ever get your question answered?
If you still have the question maybe I can answer it.
I am really liking the cm650w scan n cut2. That one is the one with more designs and more accessories. That is the one that can use PES files for embroidery if you have a Brother Dream machine. I see they also have the cm350H as the cm350R. That is with the Rhinestone set. I see the price as 299.95 less then sold on HSN.
These machines will be out for the general public they were a pre-order. I think however with some sellers it is still back ordered till January. Seems like they are really popular with the general public.
I saw some of the new accessories listed on the scan n cut accessories page. I really like the new stencil kit. I also saw the mini sticker set. I am still waiting for the stamp kit and the Universal pen holder to appear.
I have read some of the reviews of the cm350H from the reviews on HSN. Looks like most are happy with it. Last I saw was just six reviews but I have not looked today.
I get my new computer tomorrow. I am hoping that I can use my singer embroidery machine software with windows 10. I have not found an update on Singer for it so I will find out on my own.
I see singer revamped their page. Looks pretty good.
My guides tell me to watch hsn on October 28th something about duel sewing machines?? Darlene Cahill etc.
We will see if my guides are correct. If not I will fire them and look to new guides. LoLOLo.
Well anyway you have a great day my crafty friend.
Talk with you soon. I hope you are feeling better:smileyhappy:
Your HSN friend,
Nice to see you here. Again congrats on getting your new scan n cut.
I remember you posted that you had just go your new cm650w scan n cut in the scanncut2 information post. I sent you a P.M. and asked a question. Sorry I cannot remember what it was other wise I would ask it here.
However anyway any chance you can post up some pictures of some projects that you might have done with your new scan n cut? I know many here would love to see them as would I.
I would particularly like to see the RGB feature in your new scan n cut.
Seeing how I am now not the only one around here that has one and or uses one I think we should form a forum group club to show what all can really be done using these two die cutting machines.
I myself only have one die cutting machine and is the scan n cut cm550dx, however I am heavily considering buying the very same machine cm650w you bought. I do not have a need to really have more then one. However if I bought the new one and I did have two machines I would think I could do the cutting double time.
I would like to also see some of the new designs with this model. I see the manufacture does not have the booklet up showing the designs yet like they do for the older three models.
I am guessing by now you have had a chance to play with your new scan n cut. I know it is mostly doing the same thing as mine but of coarse upgraded. I really like canvas and like I said have been playing around in it more then I have in the past.
Well anyway if you could please post up some pictures I would really be tickled pink. I just love to see all the new things. The company I am in contact with is taking pre orders and would be sent out in October.
Well wishing you a ton of happiness with your new Scan n cut and I am so glad you really like it and feel the way you do as I feel about mine. Oh CM350H has 5 stars at present only 5 reviews at this time. I hope the others that bought it post up their reviews as I love reading those too.
Oh I forgot to tell you yes I have the cut up this book too. It is a beautiful book. It was the first thing I looked at when I got my scan n cut cm550dx. I think the author has another book out too. It has holiday cut out images. Nice book too.
Your HSN friend,
Hi all just to give you a quick update.
Julie Fei Fan Balzer has done many new videos using the scan n cut2 350H. I watched them and loved them. Great presentation on how to do many cut designs using this new fabulous machine. You can find them on that very famous social media place. The manufacture of the scan n cut have their own famous social media place. Well worth getting educated in using this awesome machine. Especially if you have just purchased it here at HSN. You can still incorporate some of the instructions for the older models even if you have never used the one you purchased awhile back.
For general information the CM350 will be out to the general public as far as I understand October 1,2015. I still see else where it is still pre-order and same priced as it was when it was aired here.
I have also seen for a limited time that the Rhinestone kit is being offered with the CM350R. The R after the the CM350 stands for Rhinestone kit. Go do a search and you should find it.
I too am working with my rhinestone kit and have made many designs in the snc Canvas. I have been having lots of fun.
