Debi's, Happy New Year!!!
With Christmas now behind us, it's time to get ready for the fast approaching New Year! Today, Debi will show us how to use Peachy Keen Stamps, vinyl, and a few other goodies to create a New Year's glass worth toasting past midnight!
Here is her tutorial:
Happy New Year to all of you! This week’s project is one for celebrating the evening. I decided it was time for some beautiful glass ware for my holiday table!
I know that many people etch glass but I decided to take it a step further and do reverse etching. I made my pattern so that the etching crème was brushed around the positive versus the outline of the design.
It made for an interesting look as well.
Stemware from DollarTree
Armour Etch Creme from Michael’s
Brush from Michael’s
Vinyl from Craftwell’s
eCraft Cutting machine set at 1 pressure, no tabs.
eCraft Pro Software
Water to remove crème.
Peachy Keen stamps for embellishment
colorbox inks for stamping from Hobby Lobby
assorted colored cardstock
First the software to design and the download my images and text to the machine. I love eCraft Vinyl it is so easy to cut.
Time to place the crowns and text on the stemware. I used tape and a grease pencil for placement of my images.
I am now ready to coat the glass with the Armour Etch Crème. I know that the bottle recommends a very short length of time but I have found for my purposes that longer is better. I can only tell you that I have tested the crème on all of the glass I use it on and use a watch to determine how long to leave it on. For this project I left a heavy coat for 45 minutes. I love the effect that I got.
See how heavy the coat is. I really shook it up well and coated it till it was opaque.
This is my base.
As I waited for it to etch to my desired outcome . I played with my Snowies and made one to watch over my Celebration Glass!
Well my time is up and I have rinse the crème off. I am so pleased with the outcome. It is like I have a new Glass. Just like getting a “New Year”. It is time to reflect and get your motivation ready for what is to come! Life is to come and I am ready to be excited for each and every day that I am given! Happy New Year to all and many more for all as well!!!
Let’s make 2012 the best yet!!!!
