Pinch Proof for St. Patrick’s Day

Doing A little Pinch Proof Preparedness for St. Patrick’s Day.

GREEN is the color of the day on St. Patrick’s Day…

and, I’ll be the first to admit that I look horrible in green. (It’s just not my color.)

So what do you do when green is not your color and you still want to celebrate?

You get creative and make a simple “Pinch Proof” button so you can wear a little green

and keep those pinches at bay. (It’s kind of like cootie protection when you were a kid.)

To make my Pinch Proof Button I used:     (*affiliate link)

Directions:

  • Gently rub over the vinyl transfer tape using the squeegee tool to make sure all the image has transferred.   Remove the transfer tape.

Now you’re Pinch Proof and ready to Celebrate.

Balloons and Confetti Birthday Girl Card

A fun birthday card for a sweet girl who just turned 10.

Because 10-year-old girls need a little sparkly glitter, the balloons were made using Ultra Metallic

Glitter Vinyl from StyleTechCraft.

The card uses the Confetti and Balloons Die Set from the Maker’s Movement.

Card Details…

  • I like a little dimension when I create cards, so I added the glitter vinyl onto cardstock before die-cutting it.  I added foam mounting squares under the balloons to pop them up.
  • It’s hard to tell by my picture but the heart balloons are hot pink not red.  The strings on the balloons were cut using silver ultra-metallic glitter vinyl.
  • I used the tiny heart die-cuts to make heart confetti.  It adds a little extra fun.

DIY Bloom Planters

“bloom where you are planted”

A little Inspiration for my Summer Flowers…

I’m not sure if it’s a subliminal message or a direct request.  (to my plants that is)

BLOOM!

I picked up these beautiful purple flowers over the week-end and decided to spruce up a couple

of plain pots into something special.

FYI…the name of the plant with Campanula, a partial shade loving perennial.

How to make a DIY Bloom planter…              (*affiliate link)

  1.  Paint terra cotta pot with 2 coats of white paint.
  2. Brush a thin layer of purple paint along top band.  (no need to be perfect)
  3. Lightly sand pot for a distressed look.
  4. Using a cut file and the Silhouette Cameo*, cut the saying out of the purple glitter vinyl.
  5. Apply the saying onto the pot using transfer paper.  Smooth into place and remove transfer paper.

The blue ceramic planter was plain and simple until I added stripes using the glitter vinyl,

and applied the light blue glittered vinyl words using a Vinyl Transfer Tape*.

Perfect decorative accent for my summer front porch.  (or a great gift idea)
