Petal Palette and Shimmer Paints

It’s Tuesday and I hope your week is off to a great start! I’m back with another card featuring techniques using Shimmer paints from my Facebook Live Video that I shared last Friday. In that video, I shared 7 different techniques to use with the new Shimmer Paints that will be coming out in the Stampin’ Up! ® Holiday Catalog on September 5th (tomorrow). There are 4 colors of Shimmer Paint in the catalog: Frost White, Champagne Mist, Vegas Gold and Bright Copper. My card today features the the 3rd and 4th of seven techniques from the video. I hope you enjoy it! 

One of the ways I used Shimmer paints in the video was to simply add some sparkly detail to your Designer Series papers. To do this, you will need a Stampin’ Spritzer bottle, filled with rubbing alcohol. Then add a couple drops of Shimmer paint to the bottle and make sure you shake it up really well to get that sparkle mixed up. Then spritz a couple times on your DSP. Easy peasy! I then ran my sparkly piece of Nature’s Poem DSP though the Big Shot with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for a little more texture. 
Another technique I shared in the video was applying Shimmer Paints directly to your inked up stamp. In the video I did this with a Christmas sentiment but I thought it would be fun to include that technique on this card as well…because why not cover two techniques in one blog post, right? I inked up the image from Petal Palette in Tranquil Tide ink and then using a Sponge Dauber, lightly added some Shimmer Paint over the ink, and stamped on my cardstock. It’s like creating your own “glitter ink pad.” I did the same thing but lightly in the centers of the trio of fussy-cut flowers. I hadn’t used this set in a while and I thought it paired nicely with the pattern on the DSP. 

You do have to remember to clean your stamps REALLY well before inking up again so you don’t get Shimmer paint in your ink pad. I either rinse the stamp off in water or use a wet paper towel to clean them as opposed to a Shammy or a Stampin’ Scrub, so the glitter doesn’t get stuck in there either.  It is a little extra work, but I think the result is beautiful. 
Here is another photo that really shows the sparkle on the whole card and here are the measurements: 
  • Tranquil Tide Card Base - 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2” 
  • Crumb Cake Cardstock - 4” x 5-1/4” 
  • Natures Poem DSP  - 3-7/8” x 5-1/8” 
  • Crumb Cake Cardstock - 1-1/4” x 5-1/8” 
  • Tranquil Tide Cardstock - 2-1/2” x 4"
  • Whisper White Cardstock (for stamped image) - 2-1/4” x 3-3/4” 

I hope you enjoyed this card featuring 2 more techniques with Shimmer Paint. Be sure to stop back by soon for the projects with the remaining 4 techniques I featured in the video.
