YEAR-END CLOSEOUT SALE ENDING SOON!

Only days left of the Year-End Closeout sale.  This ends the 2nd January.

Perhaps you have a little money over from Christmas OR you were given money as a gift … Maybe you will want to get yourself some reduced and retiring products.

Check the list out in my store -> HERE.

Here are just some of the items you might see.  Now to let you  know, some Bundle items will be carried over but only as individual items.  If you grab them now you will save 10%.  So if you like them, now is the time.

Copper Shimmer reduced to $10.50.  (Grab this.  Have you seen the projects I have made with this recently? Grab 2 even!).  The Vegas Gold Shimmer is reduced to $10.50 too.

Christmas Traditions Punch Box reduced to $54.60 from $78.  I think this is THE bargain of the sale.  Stamp set, punch, clear block and 2 ink spots in a pretty fancy tin.  Grab this and put it away for next Christmas creating.

This is the stamp set you get with the pack.  The stamps are small but they layer really well for tags or cards.

This bundle can be used for other occasions not just Christmas.  Those trees are great for the “masculine” cards.

3D projects, Christmas

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.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #48 – WAYS WITH THE TIN TILE EMBOSSING FOLDER!

I have been using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder a lot lately.  This Embossing Folder is so popular every time I use it in class too.  Everyone loves it.  You don’t have to just run it through the Big Shot with  a piece of card in the folder, Why not try some other cool ways to use it.

I found this video from Stampin’ Up! with a great tip for getting the best impression on your card but also some other fun ways to take your embossed card that extra step. So today for Wednesday’s WOW! #48 we are looking at ways you can use the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  I have a card below that I had actually used this idea on it before I even saw this video so be sure to look below.

I have to say I have yet to try embossing the Foil Sheets but don’t they look just gorgeous.  (adding to my list to do …)  And they looked so spectacular lightly sanding them and inking over them in parts as it showed in the video.

I like the card inked too after it has been embossed with the folder, but sponging over it with the Shimmer Paint does take the card to the next level.  I shared that video a few weeks ago of how to do that.   You can see that video -> HERE.

I will share the shimmered card piece again for you here below.

Using the idea of adding the Shimmer Paint to your embossed card we used that on one of our cards for the Shimmer Class last week.  Everyone just loved this too and we dragged out the good and faithful set Lovely As A Tree.  It’s been a while since we have used this set but it never gets dated.  It lends itself to so many occasions and techniques. NOTE: If you don’t have this set yet do yourself a favour and grab it.  You can order it in my store now -> HERE.

Here is the card we made.  Using the Copper Shimmer Paint we lightly daubered over the embossed card in places to add some shine.  Just a note too.  For the tree we daubered over some Copper Shimmer directly on the stamp.  We also did that with the Sentiment which is from the Host Set Hung With Care.

So now you have some important items you need to be sure to get:

Tin Tile Embossing Folder, Shimmer Paint, Lovely As A Tree.  Head to me store now to grab them. (link above)

Have fun with it.  Thanks for visiting me.

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.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #41 – USING THE SHIMMER PAINT – PART 1!

Today for Wednesday’s WOW! #41 I have a super quick tip for you when you are using the Shimmer Paint.  At this stage I am not showing you particular techniques necessarily.  That will come at a later date.  I just wanted to show you a quick easy way of using it.  Maybe you know it already. 🙂

You will see.  Here is the video below. It is only a very quick one I took as I was making the card so apologies for the quality.

Did you find that helpful??

I will show you the finished card tomorrow so be sure to stop by.

MOTHER OF PEARL FLOWER

I wanted to stop by today and show you another Mother Of Pearl Technique card.  I created this card a few works ago as a Make and Take at a workshop.  I outlined the technique in the last post of the ‘Sail-Away’ Mother of Pearl card.  This weekend I took some photos while doing this technique again to help explain this a little easier.

Firstly,  here is the card.

The background is sponged with Pretty in Pink ink after creating the Mother Of Pearl.

Here is a close-up.  You can see the shimmer!

Here is the technique again – with photos this time!!! 🙂

Pour out a little white shimmer paint on acetate or plastic lid.  Form a ball from Cling Wrap and dab into the paint.  You only need a very little.

Dab the ball of Cling Wrap over your Gloss card.  You don’t want to cover the card entirely.

This is what the card looks like when finished dabbing over the Shimmer Paint.  You need to leave this to dry or heat it with the Heating Tool.

Once dry, you can sponge over ink in what colour you choose.  Here I have used Pretty in Pink.

Give the card a polish over with tissue.  This really brings out the shine.

(Sorry the photos aren’t very clear.  It was quite overcast when I took them, but I hope it gives you some idea!)  🙂

Now once the card is prepared you can stamp the image on.  Remember to use Staz-On.

Now you know how it’s done you can get creating.  If you are in need of Shimmer Paint and you don’t have a local demonstrator, then let me know and I can order some for you.

Have a good day,

Jenny x
