Doesn't look like vinyl
I will try cutting this Saturday but this is so thin I have no idea how it will cut or weed. Not even sure which side is which

Very pretty
This htv is very thin but I had no issues cutting it using a cricut  on iron on setting. I think it's beautiful.

Beautiful Shimmer HTV
So it's 12am and I'm writing a review  :-) I absolutely loved this vinyl. I found it easy to work with,  goes on great and looks beautiful on a dark shirt. Will definitely buy again. Wish I could post a picture.

Here's what I did...(My instructions are slightly different thatn what HP suggests)...
This product is a little difficult to work with until you get the hang of it.  
I used the Chameleon shimmer. The EXTREMELY smooth side faces up. I have a Silhouette and with my new blade I cut it at 1/8/6.  It weeded perfectly.  I followed the application instructions for an regular iron.  It was a pain until I watched the video.  Follow the instructions for the iron but allow the vinyl to cool COMPLETELY before you peel away the transfer sheet.  I tested a small piece of the shimmer on the Happy Face Enchanted Rose Ombre HTV.  The shimmer gave the ERO a bit of a shimmer (because the ERO is a printed to look like it sparkles).  I think that if I had used the chameleon on the HF Mermaid Ombre HTV I would have gotten a better effect (simmilar color hues).  I will try again with the Glass Slipper shimmer with the Enchanted Rose.

Ridiculously difficult
I am a huge fan of Happy Crafters, but this particular vinyl is practically impossible to use. This supposedly has a carrier sheet, but I tried peeling back the carrier sheet for the stardust color, and I think the whole thing is one layer. I can't find even a hint of a carrier sheet that will peel for me, even after ironing on several test strips. Won't buy this again.

I too thought it didn’t have a carrier sheet. I did 2 test cuts, one on either side. The one that weeded was the correct side to be up in the cutter.  After that it was easy to work with easy to weed and I love it one the shirt. So soft, thin and stretches. Back for more

At first I thought this had no backing...but it's just very thin.  It's hard to tell which side is which.  I got it wrong, but just slipped it and cut again. Used Iron-On on my Cricut.

It looks cool on's very lightweight.  Make sure to let it cool before you try and remove the backing.

Has a learning curve, but beautiful!
I ordered one of each color to try. When I pulled it out of the box, I really wasn’t sure about this product. I couldn’t really tell what color was what because it’s basically clear with just a tiny hint of color if you lay it on something white. I also couldn’t figure out which side was which even after watching the video and feeling and feeling and feeling each side. Haha. I took my weeding tool and pulled at a corner to figure out which side was the carrier and then I numbered them so that I could press on a test shirt and figure out what color was what. It cut and weeded beautifully for me. Note: it does not have a sticky carrier, so you may want to use heat tape to hold it in place. When you press this onto a dark (I did black) shirt it is like magic! The colors appear and they are so pretty! I did test each color on a white shirt too and they don’t really show up at all. You would want to put these on a darker shirt. I also want to experiment with layering it over other colors of HTV, but haven’t done it yet. All in all, I think it is very pretty and I know I will use it for certain projects. I do wish it was easier to figure out what side is the carrier and what color is what, but after this initial use it will be easier.

This was a tricky little product to begin with.  It's hard to tell which side is which, it's so thin, that I didn't even understand it had two parts at first.

But, once I figured it out, the results are amazing... It's sheer and shimmering and does NOT look like it's a "home-made" shirt like some vinyls can.  I just love it.  

I made a rose out of the "rosy" color and love how it turned out.

Beauty and the beast
this vinyl was a beast to work with. Reuined a shirt with a hot peel but redeemed myself when I had my amazing finished product. Called the company for guidance, they answered were friendly, helpful and great. Highly recommended....if you're crafty!
