Stampin' Up! Shimmer Paint

I'm back! Sorry for the break in blog posts. I had my Stampin' Up! Open House this week which was so much fun! Thank you to everyone who attended.

I wanted to tell you about a new Stampin' Up! product that is available in the holiday mini. It's called Shimmer Paint. Shimmer Paint makes any paper look shimmery. It can also be used on fabric, Rub-Ons, and wood. Apply it to a stamp with a dauber to create frosted, stamped images. There are 3 colors to choose from - Champagne Mist, Frost White, and Platinum.

I applied Frost White Shimmer Paint on a sponge, and lightly dusted over the Petals-A-Plenty embossed section of the card. So easy! I also brushed the sponge along the edges of the Kraft colored card stock to add a little shimmer there as well. I hope you can see the shimmer in the photo. It's tough to photograph.

The full supply list for this creation can be found at the end of the post. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to drop me an e-mail or post your question to the comments section at the bottom of the post.

Coming up . . . guest stamper and a Halloween decoration you can make for your home!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oooh, such a pretty card! I've been debating about the shimmer paint, but I think I'll go for it since I love the effect on your card.
