The Pool is Calling Drink Holder

It feels like Summer is here now that the pool is officially open.

A few more bright and sunny days, and I’ll be ready to jump in.

Who am I kidding?  I’m either under the umbrella or on my pool float relaxing.

And since we’re not allowed to have glass items by the pool, (my rule) I made myself

a cute drink container using an expensive stainless steel tumbler found at Dollar Tree.

For my drink holder, I used Iridescent Opal Vinyl from StyleTechCraft to create the words.

I love the way the Opal Vinyl shimmers and changes with the light.

StyleTechCraft Opal Vinyl comes in 9 different colors for a lot of fun options.

While taking pictures of the products for this post, one of the pieces flew into the pool.

I thought it was ironic, so I took a picture.  (opal vinyl holds up in water)

Here’s what I used to create my drink holder:            (*affiliate links)

Directions:

  1. Wipe the surface of the tumbler with the alcohol wipe to remove any oils.
  2. Use the Silhouette Electronic Die Cutting Machine to cut the words “the Pool is Calling!” out of Opal and White Craft Vinyl
  3. The cut file I used came with an outline for the word “Pool”.  I cut it out of white glossy craft vinyl to make the word “Pool” stand out.
  4. Use a small piece of transfer paper, place onto the individual letters that spell the word “Pool”.  Place letters one by one on the white outline.
  5. Cut a piece of transfer paper slightly larger than the white vinyl outline.
  6. Apply transfer tape over the outline. Give the transfer tape a gentle rub.
  7. Apply the word “Pool” onto the tumbler.
  8. Apply additional words onto the tumbler.
  9. Allow the vinyl to cure on the tumbler for 4 days before using. (Hand wash Only)

Create a Iridescent Birthday Card using StyletechCraft Opal Vinyl

Create a Quick and Easy Iridescent Birthday Card with StyleTechCraft Opal Vinyl.

When making a card using StyleTechCrafts Opal Vinyl, a regular picture just won’t do.

You need to see the shimmery iridescent fun.

StyleTechCraft’s Opal Vinyl is one of the coolest vinyl they have.

The colors shift dramatically based on light and their surroundings and adds a little

razzle dazzle to this simple birthday card.

To make the Birthday Card I used…                                        (*amazon affiliate links)

Directions:                                

  • Cut several 3/4″ strips of Opal Vinyl and stick it onto a 4 1/2″ X 6″ piece of black cardstock.  For my card I used Pink, Blue and Green Opal Vinyl.
  • Trim the excess vinyl strips from the sides of the cardstock.
  • Cut the cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″.

  • The embossing folder creates a wonderful raised background.

  • Using a weeding tool carefully remove the negative spaces in and around the letters.
  • Place a piece of Vinyl Transfer Tape* over the letters.  Rub over the letters using a vinyl scraper tool to help the vinyl cling
  • Apply words onto a piece of 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ white cardstock.
  • Remove transfer tape.

  • To give the card additional dimension…I added a piece of thin foam onto the back of the white cardstock.

  • Adhere the layers onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white card.
