Silhouette Challenges "Special Challenge Use Rhinestones"

Good morning my crafty friends.

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I know many of you were crafting, many went to Expos etc.
I stayed home, cooked, did laundry and a little crafting.

Today is your last chance to participate in the Blossom Hop some really great prizes along the way.
Click HERE to start at the beginning.

Now lets move onto today's post.

"Special Challenge - Use Rhinestones" over at Silhouette Challenges.

I have been wanting to use the Silhouette for Rhinestones for sometime.
This challenge gave me the opportunity.

For my first project I decided to add some stones to a shirt.

I used a free flower file that I download with the free download card that came in the Rhinestone Starter Kit.

The hat on the shirt already had some sequins on the band. I thought adding the flower would finish it off. I love how it turned out.




For my second project I thought I would try it on card stock.

I took a file from the Silhouette Store, copied it then erased everything but the butterfly. Using the Rhinestone tool I filled the butterfly. Cut it on the template material, transferred to another copy of the butterfly I had made and cut out in pink. Used the iron and they adhered perfectly.

  1. Wow, Nana, these projects are outstanding! I didn't even think about adding to another medium on the shirt, imagine what some rhinestones and some HTV could do! I also wouldn't have imagined using them for paper crafting and they turned out fabulous! I might need to expand my rhinestone collection, LOL. Thanks for so much inspiration!
