I made this shirt with heat press flock vinyl and rhinestones. This first picture is so you can see the flock vinyl…very cool stuff. My son is in gymnastics and he had a pretty big smile when I showed him the shirt. Granted, pink isn’t exactly a boy color, but since I’m wearing it, who cares, right? 🙂

Black clothing is hard to photograph without distorting the other colors. The first two pictures are truer to color but I wanted to show a “completed” shirt. I’d love to see your projects using heat press vinyl and/or rhinestones! I’ve made several other shirts with rhinestones and have to say, it can be a bit addicting…and oh so fun! Don’t forget to mirror your image before you cut the design, have fun with it!

Here’s a card using a silver glitter gel pen. I converted my Silhouette Studio file and imported it into KNK Studio and used the gel pen to draw the flourish. Using an exacto knife, I cut some of the rubber grip off of the gel pen to fit it into the blade holder of the KNK. It worked well with this pen, but when I tried it with the pink gel pen, it wobbled a bit and left a bad drawing. I will have to try and figure out how to perfect it as I have other colors I’d like to use.

Both hearts are Quickutz Nesting Hearts and the sentiment is from Winter Schminter (Whipper Snapper Designs). It was hard to get a good picture of the silver glitter gel pen but it really is subtle and so pretty in person. Pink silk embroidery thread was a nice added touch…and I’m done!

This card was made using a flourish heart and antique key from Silhouette and were cut using the Cameo. I cut two black keys and adhered them together, then sprayed them with Krylon Triple Thick Crystal Clear Glaze for some added texture. I think tying the bow took the longest, but all in all, it was a quick card. 🙂

My last card uses one of my favorite dies (ha, I have lots of favorites!), the branch die by Memory Box. I made this one for my husband as we’re celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary tomorrow. I can’t believe it’s been that long but can honestly say, he gets better with age. The hearts are an EK Success punch and the stamp is an anniversary set from PTI.

Thanks for stopping by!
