If you just arrived here from Debi Tullier’s blog then you are in the right place. If you just happened upon my blog please start at the beginning over at Raven’s Blog. That way you will be able to see all of the amazing projects and you will have more ways to win. And boy do we have a great prize in store for you! More on that later...on with my project!
Here is my project for the hop!
This is a gift for my son's teacher and I hope she likes it! I have so much fun doing vinyl projects and this one was no exception! I made videos to document the creation of this project so that you can easily scraplift it from me! I broke it up into 3 videos to make it easier for you to find what you are looking for!
First up, this video will show you how I used various tools in Make the Cut to create multi-layers out of a single layer image. This is so much fun to do!
In this next video, I used the new Conical Warp feature in MTC to get the vinyl to wrap onto the tumbler nice and smooth. I also show how to do this when you are using multiple colors on the tumbler!
In this last video, I show you how I apply vinyl onto rounded objects like this.
Here is a list of what I used:
- Small paint can from Michael's
- Patterned Paper from Papertrey Ink It's Official Patterned Paper Pack
- Glossy Outdoor Permanent Adhesive Vinyl - this is essential for the tumbler so that it does not come off, and just a note that it is also safe to wash in the top rack of the dishwasher...BONUS!! Less dishes always make me happy!
- eCraft Cutting Machine - of course!
- Make the Cut Software
- Lettering Delights fonts (LD Modern Sans and LD Typeset)
- Lettering Delights Cut Its file - Desk Supplies
- Scor Tape (for adhering the glitter)
- Diamond Dust Glitter
- Ribbon - Papertrey Ink Saddle Stitch in Ripe Avocado,Spring Moss and Pinefeather
Here is a list of all the designers in the hop in case you get lost along the way.
