Drinks To Go with StyleTech

Hello and welcome to the June Designer Crafts Connection Blog Hop!

This month we are partnering with StyleTech Crafts.  Tape Technologies has been manufacturing StyleTech vinyl products for more than 30 years.  They moved into the craft market recently and have introduced over 70 new films intended to spark your creativity!  I received a stack of colorful vinyl to play with and instructions to think "summer fun" when creating my project.

To me, nothing says "summer fun" quite like a good road trip!  I like to stay hydrated so I picked up a travel cup from the Dollar Tree and started to play...

I picked 3 colors of vinyl - orange, purple and green - and started by die cutting some leaves and flowers.  The dies I used are Thinlits from Eileen Hull's newest release from Sizzix.

The vinyl cut beautifully!

I used a Die Pick to carefully separate the vinyl from the backing material...

...and then applied the vinyl to the cup.  I played around, layering the different colors and shapes...

...until I was happy with the design!

To personalize the cup, I used a Silhouette to cut my name from the glittery orange vinyl, picked it up with some transfer tape...

...and applied it to the lid of my cup.  That orange really pops against the green!   

Perfect! Now I am ready to roll with my drinks to go!  Road trip anyone?

There are so many things you can embellish with vinyl!  Check out the other stops along the blog hop for lots of great inspiration and ideas!
