Shimmer Paint with a Stampin’ Spritzer

Shimmer Paint with a Stampin’ Spritzer

Shimmer paint lends itself to so many techniques – this one uses Shimmer Paint with a Stampin’ Spritzer and some rubbing alcohol. To create a beautiful shimmery background, all you need to do is mix a few drops of Shimmer Paint with rubbing alcohol (about 2/3 full) in a Stampin’ Spritzer.  Be sure to shake the spritzer each time before spraying the mixture on cardstock.  For this card, I sprayed Soft Suede cardstock with Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint mixed with rubbing alcohol.  The pictures don’t show the shimmer but, believe me, it looks amazing!!

Measurements and instructions:

  1. Cut Soft Suede Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.

Whether you apply Shimmer Paint with a sponge dauber or with a Stampin’ Spritzer, you will absolutely LOVE the results!!

Shimmer Paint with Sponge Daubers

Shimmer Paint with Sponge Daubers

Have you tried applying Shimmer Paints with Sponge Daubers?  In a recent class, we tried a variety of techniques using Shimmer Paint.  This one was simple and produced a striking end result.  By using the Tin Tile Textured Embossing folder first and then applying Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint with a sponge dauber, we are able to highlight the raised areas.  You can add more paint if we want to so each card can be different!

  1. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Berry Burst Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″. Use the Big Shot and the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add texture to the layer.
  3. Use a sponge dauber to add Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to the raised areas of the embossing.
  4. Cut a piece of Berry Burst Metallic Ribbon and attach over the centre of the Berry Burst layer.
  5. Attach to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  6. Use Night of Navy Classic Ink to stamp the greeting on a scap of Whisper White Cardstock.
    1. Punch out the greeting with the Pretty Label Punch.
    2. Punch out another label from Night of Navy Cardstock and attach to the back of the greeting creating a shadow.
  7. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the completed greeting layer over the embossed layer.

This combination resulted in a beautiful feminine birthday card.  We could make the card with masculine colours and the results would be equally as stunning!
