SHIMMER PAINT CHRISTMAS BAUBLE!

Christmas is done for another year but I have another project to share with you.  I didn’t want to miss sharing this.

I call this my Shimmer Bauble.  This is a clear Christmas Bauble with Copper Shimmer Paint swirled inside.  I had this in mind but I wasn’t sure if it would work.  I was really pleased how it turned out.

The Bauble is one with the little cap at the top.  You can get them that open up in half but I don’t think it would work as well.  I first poured the Shimmer Paint in to the lid of the little paint pot and then very carefully (and I will say very nervously) poured it in to the bauble.  I used small amounts at first as I wasn’t sure how much it would need.  I put enough in that I could then turn the bauble and swirl the Shimmer paint around inside to coat it randomly and create “runs” with the paint too.

I needed to add a little more over a few goes for it to move over most of the sides.  I didn’t want it to completely cover it though.  I left the bauble open sitting in a bowl so the paint could dry out. I even left it tipped upside down for a few hours as there was a pool of paint in the bottom.

Once it had dried out I put in the cap, tied around some of the Copper Reversible Ribbon and added a tag.  The sentiment on the tag is from Hearts Come Home and it is cut with a small rectangle Framelit from the Farmhouse Framelits.   I added a couple of tiny “snowflakes” from the Hearts Come Home set that were stamped with the Copper Shimmer Paint.

This was such a fun project to make.  Maybe I could try the Gold Shimmer and the White … Mmm! have a to work on those.

Thanks for visiting.  See you again soon as we now move on from Christmas.

ONE LAST CHRISTMAS CARD WITH HEARTS COME HOME – AND A HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

It’s my last Christmas share today.  I made this one a couple of months ago.  So it is about time to share it with you.

This one I Cased from my friend Leonie who I think Cased it off Pinterest.  I have seen it on Pinterest anyway.  It uses the Hearts Come Home stamp set and the Hometown Greetings Edgelits.

The little houses were cut from Whisper White and adhered to a Night of Navy diecut circle.  The Circle is layered on to a Silver Foil Scallop Circle. Both are cut from the Layering Circles Framelits.  I had heat embossed Santa and his reindeers in Silver Embossing Powder too.

The Night of Navy card strip was embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and I added some Silver Foil Strips underneath the piece. After wrapping around some Silver ribbon I adhered the piece on to a Whisper White Card mat that I had heat embossed the sentiment in Silver.  It was all adhered to a Night of Navy card base.

There you have it, Christmas creating is done.  I am looking forward to packing all the Christmas stamps away and now turn to the new Occasions Catalogue.  I can’t wait to play with some fun new products coming out.  Watch this space for more.

For now, I wish you a very Happy Christmas.  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope however you spend Christmas the time is full of happiness and joy.  Perhaps you can take time to remember the greatest gift we have received – and it is not found under the tree.  It is one of Hope and Grace so freely given to us.

Christmas blessings to you and yours,

Love Jenny x
