cards, Stampin' Up!, Techniques

DID YOU KNOW STAMPIN’ UP! HAD BERMUDA BAY GLIMMER PAPER??

Well, you can make any colour you like!

You might have seen you can colour any embellishment like the Rhinestones and Pearls or ribbon with the Blends BUT I had a play with something else the other day.  Did you know you can colour the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with the Stampin’ Blends.  Now before you rush off and try it there are a couple of important notes.

** Use the Brush Tip end of your marker and only GENTLY brush over the Glimmer Paper.  Too hard a rub may damage the nibs of your marker.

** Only colour the area exposed so you don’t waste the ink.  You can see further below.

Here is the card I made with colouring the Glimmer Paper.

This is using the set Color Me Happy now available.  I have coloured the bird and the flower with the Stampin’ Blends.   Plus I coloured the Adhesive Pearl in too.  When I assembled the card I embossed the White card mat with the Softly Falling Embossing Flower and added a strip of white that was cut with the Flourish Thinlits under the Merry Little Christmas DSP.  (Don’t just keep this paper for Christmas!).

Getting back to the Scallop Circle.  I cut a scallop Circle using the Layering Circles Thinlits from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  Then coloured just around the edge of it gently with the Dark Bermuda Bay Blends marker.   You don’t want to press hard with the marker.   Also, you only need to colour the outside edge that will be seen.

So what colour Glimmer Paper will you make??  Have fun with it.

Have a great weekend,

BOX WEEK – BOX #2

Here is a little pocket for your Christmas treats.  This is using the Petite Pocket Die again.  I found this idea for the Sparkly flap from Dawn here.

P1070317

The DSP is from the Candlelight Specialty pack from the Seasonal Mini.  I have cut circles with the Die to create the circle tie-downs and wrapped twine around them.  I cut the flap again from the Silver Glimmer Paper.   I think it is quite classy!

This is just the right size for a Chocolate treat or as a money holder – or even a Gift Card 😉

Thanks for stopping by today.  See you tomorrow.
