Holiday Series - Shirt #8

Image
Still going strong on those holiday shirts.  Today's shirt is one that has some less than traditional Christmas colors.  I wanted to get some pink and green into this holiday season and this shirt does that.  I believe the image came from the Silhouette Design Store.  That pink glitter HTV was a bear to weed.  I don't know if it is old or what, but I think the Cricut Bright Pad would have been a lot of help.  I sure hope Santa brings me one for Christmas.






All Is Merry and Bright T-shirt Recipe This shirt is not your typical Christmas color and that is exactly what I was going for.  I outlined the images in Silhouette Studio using the offset feature.  I used white vinyl for the offset so the words would pop.  Hot pink glitter heat transfer vinyl was cut out using my Silhouette Cameo for the saying.  Have I said that glitter was a bear to weed?  I started it one night - put it aside and finished the next day.  I had to redo the M because I lost part of it.  I also had to redo t…

Holiday Series T-Shirt #7 - Joy to the World

Image
Yep - more shirts.  I started on another one tonight but got frustrated while weeding hot pink glitter.  Some glitter HTV just peels perfectly.  I don't know what brand this hot pink is, but I am not happy with it.  I decided I would stop and resume weeding tomorrow.  I sure hope I get that Cricut Bright Light for Christmas.

This shirt was pretty easy - one cut of gold htv and press on a navy blue t-shirt.





Joy to the World T-shirt Recipe I picked this one up on the Silhouette Design Store.  It is so simple and yet so elegant.  I thought at first I was going to put it on a dark red shirt, but then decided the navy blue looked more like the night sky.  The flat gold htv is perfect on this dark colored shirt.  It was cut out using my Silhouette Cameo 1 - yep I still use my first Cameo.

WOYWW 445 - A Clean Up and Progress

It is Wednesday and that means it is time to take a picture of my desk and share it on Julia's Stamping Ground for the whole world to see.  But even more fun than that is going and snooping around the desk of fellow crafters from around the world.

Here is my desk this week:




I have dog grooming tonight so I will be late in getting around to visit.

Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.

Bubble Greeting Cards - Hello Friend

Image
It's time for another break from holiday shirts.  I will say I pressed 2 more shirts so there will be more coming.  In the mean time, I have been making some cards with the one of the stamp sets from last months Taylored Expressions release called Bubble Greetings.  Love, love, love these big 'fluffy' sentiments.  So many possibilities.  As a matter of fact, I am doing a class with them at Craft Inn using three different sentiments and three different techniques.


Hello Friend Card Recipe This card was very simple, but doesn't necessarily look simple.  I stamped the Bubble Sentiment in Versamark ink and heat set it in black embossing powder.  I took Tim Holtz oxide inks in the pastel rainbow colors and rubbed the pad on my craft mat.  I spritzed the ink with water and used that to paint the letters in the word friend.  I made extra purple and flicked it on the water color card stock with my paint brush.  I matted the card front on a piece of purple card stock and put t…

Holiday Series T-shirt #6 - Jingle

Image
Yep - the holiday shirts continue, but I was only able to make one for myself this weekend so I am behind.  I struggled with the color combination for my Twas the Night Before Christmas t-shirt and then I got busy making everyone else's t-shirts.  Today's shirt was a cut I bought from the Silhouette Design Store.  It's just a fun shirt along the lines of the Believe shirt we did last year.




Jingle T-shirt Recipe I started with one of your traditional holiday color t-shirts - green.  Jingle came from the Silhouette Design Store.  Since I used scraps to cut out the vinyl, this shirt was quite economical.

Holiday Series - T-shirt #5

Image
Yep - I have yet another holiday t-shirt.  You might wonder why I made my Christmas shirts using t-shirts instead of long sleeve shirts or those fabulous raglands or baseball shirts.  Those fabulous raglands and baseball shirts can't be found on sale at Michaels and JoAnn's for $2 - $2.50.  But being cheap is not my only reason.  I am always cold.  My furnace not working when it's 25 degrees outside is not the only reason I am cold.  And don't worry we have a new one on the way and a gas fireplace to keep us warm.  But I digress.  Back to my always being cold.  I am always cold and I like to layer.  T-shirts can always be worn over the top of a long sleeve t-shirt which keeps me warm.  And if I make a mistake on my shirt, I don't feel like I have wasted a lot of money.  I've made a mistake on a ragland and it always bums me out.

Here is t-shirt #5:
