T-Shirt Transfers, a Freebie & 40% off today!

I realized that the kids had nothing green in their wardrobes so we did a bit of tie-dying this week then I though, hmmm, why not add some iron-on decals to our shirts as well? You will need Iron on Transfer paper, clip art (I used an image from the Organic Living kit from Lindsay’s stamp Stuff ), an iron set to dry and hot, scissors and a natural fiber t-shirt. The first thing you need to do is open your graphics software (I am using Paint Shop Pro) and arrange your artwork. Get as much as you can on a sheet because you will cut around the images after you print them. Use the PNG files so you can really pack them in 🙂

If you are using iron-on transfer paper for dark fabrics you can leave the image as is and print BUT if you are using standard iron-on transfers you need to flip the image:


Then I printed it using the everyday setting. If you are using MS word or another program that will not let you mirror your image then when you go to print click Preferences – Advanced – Mirror Image (switch to “on”) or check “Iron-on Transfer” under paper choice.

I will use the Vegetarian logo on this shirt and save the rainbows for other shirts.

Do not use your ironing board when doing transfers. You need a hard surface that can take a lot of pressure like a table or counter. Lay a cotton pillowcase on the table and iron it, then iron your fabric, make sure the steam is turned off. Cut apart your images and place them on your shirt exactly where you want them.

*Light color shirt transfers go face down. Dark color shirt transfers go face up and you use a special tissue paper over it to press, that is why you don’t need to flip dark color fabric transfers. If you have any questions check the instructions that come with your transfers

Honestly you need to press down really hard, use both hands, I only used one here because the other hand was holding the camera 😛

Set your iron to the hottest setting. You need to exert a lot or pressure while you iron. If you are ironing an entire sheet set your timer for 3 minutes. You can use an oven timer or an egg timer for this. I used a quarter of a sheet and only needed to iron it one minute. Press the transfer firmly moving it so you do not scorch you fabric. when the timer goes off let it cool completely before trying to remove the backing sheet.

Enjoy your stylin’ new shirt…yeah, I look like such a dork 🙂

Here are the other shirts I made, the Rainbow is also from the Organic Living kit and the shamrocks are today’s freebie!

Since it is st.Pattie’s day how about a shamrock freebie, you can whip up some custom shirts for the kids before they come home from school (or just save it til next year LOL!)

$1 retirement stamp sets and new Valentine goodies!

Hey! It’s time to make room for new product in the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff shop at MyGrafico and I have a bunch of retiring sets that you can snag for $1, You will still be able to purchase the sets in my Shophandmade shop {at full price} but why not grab a deal now?

I have been in the mood for Valentine’s day this week {with a cold New England winter ahead it is something nice to look forward too plus I have ALWAYS loved Valentines day!} Here are some cards I made with the SVG die cutting files that are included in my new A Little Lovin’ kit from Lindsay’s stamp Stuff, I used my Cricut and SCAL software to die cut all the shapes.

I love how these “sweet” cards are not Valentine specific, heck you can use these long after Valentines day!

And of course a valentines card for hubby {let’s hope he isn’t reading my blog today 🙂 LOL}

Tip: When making a batch of cards arrange all of your die cuts on one mat separated by color, then place different colored papers on the mat. That is how I cut these designs all in one pass in about 5 minutes!

Now here is a look at the A Little Lovin’ set, you get clip art in JPG and PNG format plus fully editable EPS and SVG art files and SVG cutting files that have been specifically optimized for die cutting.

Did you know that most of my clip art sets come with SVG cutting files at no extra charge, gotta love a little something extra:) Speaking of a little something extra here is a cute Valentine digital stamp freebie. To download click on the image, then right-click on the larger picture and choose “Save as” Easy peasy (and no waiting for 4shared-I hate that!)

Now let’s see what the LSS DT have cooked up for you this week:

One last thing…a tip: to make a card really special hand stamp an envelope as I did to go with my “Who Loves You” card, it is a fun way to break in new rubber stamps or use some old favorites and as a bonus your card will brighten the day of the mail carriers who deliver it!

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Let’s Get this Party Started!

Happy Friday! I have been busy this week planning my sons birthday party, this year he wants to have an arcade party so I designed an Arcade Party Printable set that includes invitations, favor bags, cupcake wrappers and toppers, candy bar wrappers and thank you notes plus my 30% off Spooktacular Sale is going on so you can snag the entire set for $3.50! I also think this would be darling if you were having a video game sleepover party!

 

There is so much in this kit and the favor and quick, easy and inexpensive to make!

 

I used to be leery of printing bright graphics on my home printer due to the cost of ink but a few months a go I tried off-brand ink for my HP photosmart printer (I bought it through amazon.com marketplace from the seller vivamart-no affiliation though:) I got all 6 HP02 ink carts for $10 and free shipping, I’ve replaced many of the inks and as you can see from my photos the colors are bright and crisp with the cheap ink! It used to cost me $70 for that much ink at Staples, what a deal!

 

This adorable candy bar wrapper is 5.25"x5.25" and cover candy bars such as Nestle Crunch©, Nestle Aero©, Hershey© Milk Chocolate,Special Dark©, Hershey© with Almonds, Mr. Goodbar© No text is on the wrapper, you can type or write what you like or leave it blank 🙂

 

I love the candy bar wrapper! Jacks birthday is a week before Halloween so I’m not sure if parents will be cool with me handing these out to the guests but they are just so cute! I havent decided what to give as favors yet, maybe some of the small plastic pinball games from the party favor isle at Target, they will easily fit in either of the favor bags. The large one cuts from one sheet of 8.5″x11″ caredstock but the small one cuts 2 to a sheet and that is included in the Arcade Party Printable kit too. Here you can see the difference in size, the large one is3″wide, 1.5″ deep and 4.5″ high, the small one is 2.5″ wide, 1″ deep and 3.75″ high:

 

If you want custom text on yout printables add it before printing! I changed my text color to white so it stands out and uses less ink!

 

The invitation and Thank you notes are 5″x7″ with a full .25 bleed (that is handy if you want them professionally printed or if you are an invitation company-yes commercial use is available!) or you can print them at home as I did, the invitation I printed flat just by typing my text over the arcade game screen:

 

No text or wording is on the invitation, you can do that on your computer:)

 

But for the Thank you note I printed it as a folded card but you could easily use it as a flat card and type or write your thank-yous in the white space:

 

the words "thank You" ARE already printed on this card.

 

Th cupcake wrappers are 4 to a 8.5″x11 sheet so no paper is wasted and you get 20 toppers that can be punched out with a 1.5″ circle punch on another 8.5″x11″ sheet:

 

Is there anything cuter than cupcakes and candybars with custom wrappers? I don't think so.

 

Here is a look at the Arcade Party Printable set, remember it is 30% off along with everything else through tomorrow at Lindsay’s stamp stuff!

Remember 30% off everything until Saturday night at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff!

“Scare” Mail!

OK, my project today is more cute than scary but I can’t resist a good pun! Here is a card and paper mailbox made with the 3-D mailbox SVG/Printable template set and Creepy Crow, Cute Halloween and Vintage Halloween Labels stamps from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff:

Don't you want to start your Halloween crafting? This was loads of fun to make!

The card was done by first coloring the swirled crow with 3 shades of purple Copic markers then I rubber stamped a row of trees in the background with clear embossing ink, I stamped the ground area with a large crackle background stamp (with the clear ink as well) then I simply rubbed colored chalk over the background. Notice how the color stuck to the clear ink, nifty huh, and since the ink is clear it does not show up on the crow. I love fast and easy techniques!

To make the moon in the packground I simply punched a circle and placed it on my stamped panel before I used the chalk and applied the chalk over it. Easy peasy!

Here is a peek at the 3-D mailbox closed, you could fill it wish candy, cards or other favors:

I used my Cricut and Sure Cuts a Lot (SCAL) software to cut the template. (SCAL is on sale for $59.95 -regularily $75- right now BTW) Assembling the box is easy but the first time it can be a bit tricky so I made a video to show you how, hope you like it 🙂

Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? Here are the sets I used in this project:

I Bet you are looking for your freebie, huh, well here you go, enjoy 🙂
