For Christmas I put my handy-dandy vinyl skills to work and made tons of hot/cold drinking tumblers for family & friends with their favorite drinks and logos. Then a few days after Christmas I watched a YouTube video on How to create a negative image to cut from vinyl and boom, I used that technique to cut a scrap piece of black vinyl of Bob Marley. It’s not perfect, but with practice I know I’ll improve my skills.
I also couldn’t hold off on showing you my very own custom tumbler that I made (also with my Silhouette). I just can’t stop making them….ugh-lol! There isn’t enough time in the day to make all I want to experiment with….LOL. Although I officially start my Hawaiian vacation tonight, I’m seeking ideas of what other designs I can make for tumblers. I’m addicted to crafting….LOL…but then again, so are you if you’re reading this. HA!
MAGGIE MADE TIPS:
- Try New Things. Although I try new craft techniques and products, I will never leave Stampin’ Up! With my negative vinyl image I used Stampin’ Up! cardstock for the layers. No other paper adds up to the quality of our cardstock.
- Practice, Practice, Practice. To get good at your craft one has to continue to practice as often as possible.
