Etching Glass with the Silhouette and a GIVEAWAY

If you've been following my blog for a long time, then you might remember THESE etched superhero glasses I made a long time ago.  We still have them and we still use them.  Even back then I used my Silhouette to cut the vinyl stencils to make the glasses.  You can see the full tutorial and process HERE.


I remember quite a few of you saying it was hard to find etching cream.  Well, now the Silhouette store carries it and they even have a etching starter kit you can purchase.  Here's the current promo.


To take advantage of any of these deals just go HERE and you can use the code "ROAR."

And how about a giveaway?  I rarely do giveaways here, but I love this machine and I get excited to be able to give one of them to one of you awesome readers.  The winner will receive a Silhouette Portrait.  All you have to do is leave ONE comment here.  If you leave more than one please go back and delete the extra.  (Open to US residents only.  Sorry!)

Thanks for dropping by!

Those glasses are so cute. I'd love to etch my kid's initials onto their glasses so I remember whose is whose throughout the day. I'm slowing transitioning them to glass instead of the multi colored plastic ones we have. Thanks for the giveaway!

dhappy said...

I just love serendipity! Last night, my 12 year old son said it would be great to "make designs that stick to mason jars" to give as holiday presents this year (we use them for EVERYTHING!). This morning I was looking through the Summer 2012 issue of Living Crafts mag for some sewing inspiration. I saw the bit about your upcycling, and had to check out your blog....and here I am, happy and grateful to find the inspiration I was seeking, as well as the opportunity to take a chance on something that will "make designs that stick" to glass!
Thanks so much!

Kristie said...

I so want one of these! Thanks for the opportunity to win one!

Twirdles said...

That looks like a great tool. I would love to etch my name into my glass dishes to get them back instead of the old masking tape.

I am so glad you are back. If I won I am giving this to my mom. I never realized the gift she gave me of being crafty. I tackle projects with a can do attitude, and I hope my children are learning this from me. :)

Etching glass is one of the items on my crafting to-do list. :) I want to add subtle numbers to the base of our wine glasses so that people can remember their number at dinners instead of where they put their glass.

Kristy Shields said...

I so desperately want one of these. I used to work in a sign shop and LOVED designing, cutting, and applying vinyl to things. I could get into SO much more trouble with all the awesome things the Silhouette's do, though.
