Good morning, everyone!
I'm back with another Silhouette Cameo T-shirt......But.....This one is for me AND it's got some bling!
This was soooooooooooooo fun to create! One of the features of the Cameo is that has a "rhinestone" button. You can simply use any line-art image to turn into a design with rhinestones! Now, if you are looking for images to sell, you do have to be careful of copyright issues.....but, since this one was for me....I'm good to go!
I went looking for a coffee cup that I liked through Google Images. In order to make it work, I had to import the image into the design software and fill the design with black. Once that was complete, I used the trace function to trace the wording and cup. Finally, I hit that magic "rhinestone" button and it created a template of circles for the Cameo to cut.
Once that step is complete and the template is cut and adhered to a backing board, you simply pour your rhinestones over all of the little wholes and brush them in to place. This took much more time than I had anticipated because I used 2 different colored rhinestones. In the end, I decided it was worth it. ;-)
Finally, using transfer tape, you lift all of those rhinestones up, place it on your T-shirt and use a hot iron to adhere them. I've gotten to wear my shirt on several occasions and have gotten compliments every time. I love my shirt!
|I love having 2 colors of rhinestones, it really makes a big difference in the design!|
Since Michael's & JoAnn's had all of their Jerzee T-shirts on sale for $2.50 a few weeks ago, let's just say I have plenty to dabble with......lol I even have plans of making a "flip flop" T-shirt sometime soon.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
