WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #47 – MAKING UP A SHIMMER PAINT SPRAY!

This weekend is my Shimmer Paint Technique class.  I have been having lots of fun sponging and spraying this stuff around.  For our Wednesday’s WOW! #47 I thought I would share with you how to make the Shimmer Spray up.  Also, I will show you one of the cards we will make in class using this spray.

MAKE YOUR SHIMMER PAINT SPRAY

Add a small amount of the Shimmer Paint in a Stampin’ Spritzer bottle.  I added about 1cm, or approximately 1/2″.  The more paint the more intense the spray will be. Then top up the bottle with Rubbing Alcohol.  The Rubbing Alcohol can be picked up at most Chemists (or Drug Stores).  You can add water instead of alcohol but it doesn’t dry as quickly.  Give it a good shake to mix them together.  Before you use this each time if it has sat for a while then be sure to shake it.  That’s all there is to it.

TIP: When you are spraying your card check which direction the nozzle is as to where it will spray …  You might like to spray inside a box or cover the table to avoid any random spraying.

The further away you hold the spritzer the finer the mist will be.  Bring the Spritzer in closer and it will be more heavier.

This is the card we will be creating on the weekend.  (By the way there are still spaces if you are a Wollongong local and want to join us. Check the previous post for class details).

I have used the Southern Serenade stamp set and stamped it on to Shimmery White cardstock.  That gives extra sparkle but also is good for the liquid used.  I stamped the images in Black Stazon and coloured them with the Watercolor Pencils.   After it was finished I spritzed the card.  This spray is using the Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint.

You can see the Shimmer Paints on page 38 of the Holiday catalogue or view them in store ->HERE.  Scroll down the page to see each one.  There are 4 colours: Vegas Gold, Bright Copper, Champagne Mist (which is a silver) and Frost White.

Get your Free Sponge Dauber for each pot of Shimmer Paint you order from me this week.  Each pot is $14.

See you again soon,

LEAPING DEER FOR A STAMP A STACK!

There are lots of things happening to share with you at the moment with specials and extra bits.  You really want to see inspiration though don’t you?? 🙂  I have a quick card to share with you today.  This card was one of the cards we made at last week’s Christmas Stamp A Stack.  Everyone loved the richness of it.  There was a lot of cutting and embossing to it but once that was done the card came together quickly.  Especially when they had 3 of these to make!

The card base is Cherry Cobbler with the card mat embossed with the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder.  There was a bit of punching with the Sprig Punch in Old Olive and Shaded Spruce.  The only stamping was the sentiment which is from the Wishing You Well set.  Of course, the beautiful leaping deer from the Detailed Deer Thinlits. 

This card was inspired by one by Jo Anne -> HERE. 

Thanks for visiting me.  Have a great day,

Jenny

WISHING YOU WELL CHRISTMAS!

Yesterday I shared a card using the Wishing You Well set.  When I made that one I made a similar Christmas version.  It shows just how versatile this set is.  The layout is exactly the same as yesterday’s version with just a couple of changes.  Head back to the post to see it if you missed it.

This is the Christmas version.

For this one, the base is Shaded Spruce and the wreath is stamped in Shaded Spruce.  I am really liking this colour lately.  It’s a great green for traditional Christmas cards.  The bow was stamped on scrap white and cut out separately – with scissors – no punches or dies available. 🙂  The bow was raised up with Dimensionals.  The “spots” from Timeless Textures were stamped in Smoky Slate this time.  The strip of paper is from Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper available in the Annual Catalogue.  The sentiment from the Wishing You Well stamp set fits nicely in the Stitched Labels Framelits.  I layered the white stamped and diecut piece on to a Shaded Spruce one.  TIP: to do this diecut a Shaded Spruce one, cut it in half vertically and separate the piece as you layer it under the white one.  I added some Red Rhinestones to finish the card off.

I hope you like this version. Christmas is coming up way too quickly don’t you reckon??  3 months today.

Have a great day,

Jenny

WISHING YOU WELL MAKE AND TAKE!

Since I am sharing cards with the Wishing You Well set lately I thought I should show you this one.  This card was one of the cards we made at my Holiday Catalogue Launch a few weeks ago.  Everyone liked making this card even though it is fairly simple.  We made this on the weekend at a private class too.  They all liked it there also. 🙂  (BTW: If you can’t make a class you can book a Private class with me with a couple of friends. They are always a fun time).

The layout is based on the Freshly Made Sketches #352 – you can see that here. 

There was the option to stamp the bow on scrap white paper and cut it out (no Framelits or punch for that sorry!).  This was raised up with Dimensionals and that looked good too. The strip of paper is from the Country Lane Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment stamped on Crushed Curry was cut with the Bunch of Banners Framelits and we trimmed off one of the ends of the banner. We added a few loops of Silver Thread behind it.  To add some colour to the white space the “dots” from Timeless Textures was stamped in several places in Mint Macaron.

I made another similar card to this in Christmas colours.  Check that out in tomorrow’s post.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Jenny
