Hi Everyone – - it’s Mandy from Sugar Bee Crafts, excited for my monthly takeover of the Expressions Vinyl Blog!
Today I want to talk about “Dusted Crystal” vinyl. Huh?!? It’s the most awesome thing ever – better know as “Etched Glass Vinyl” and when you’re buying vinyl at Expressions Vinyl, it’s listed under the “specialty vinyl”. It makes something look like etched glass. With the ease of a vinyl sticker. SO great!
For example, my kids have been leaving our sliding glass door open all. the. time. What is with that? And now we have our air on and I’ve turned old and am constantly saying “we don’t want to pay to cool the outdoors”. So I crafted up a solution – this beauty:
And you’re probably noticing that’s an awful picture – I swear I cleaned the glass before the photo, but apparently only on one side. And taking a picture of see-through-ish vinyl is tricky. So then I tried at night – it was worse! I wish I could invite you over to see how great it looks in person – but you’ll just have to know that it’s awesome.
I used my Cameo which I love because it will cut any font that you have loaded on your computer. Have you ever looked into grabbing a few free fonts – you will be sucked in for hours – it’s a whole world of typography deliciousness. But if you have a Cricut you can cut any letters you want with the cartridges you have. Either way, give Etched Glass Vinyl a try – it’s awesome!
At Thanksgiving we had family over – last minute I ran and cut “Thankful” out of frosted vinyl and stuck it to the mirror that was by the table. Those fun extra touches.
In the past I made a memo board out of an old window – you can see the words cut with Etched Glass Vinyl (you can see more about this craft on my blog HERE).
Dusted Crystal Vinyl is like glass etching without the mess or long-term commitment – give it a try!!
