SHIMMER PAINT-ing

SAVI Sunday - 12:  Painting with Shimmer Paint.

I saw this video a while ago and thought, hmmmm, I can probably do something similar with our Shimmer Paints.  And even though it did not go totally according to plan, I still like the outcome.  

PicsArt_04-19-06.23.21

I heat embossed the floral image from the Band Together stamp set with Gold Embossing powder on Basic Black card stock.  (full product details below).  Make sure to use your Embossing Buddy lightly on the black card stock and then stamp your image and words with Versamark.  Embossing powder will stick to the Versamark.  Use your Heat Tool to melt the powder.

I then painted on Frost White Shimmer Paint and colored over with re-inkers.  

You can see how I did this in my SAVI Sunday video:

Although I did not show in my video, the full floral bloom center is where I used Pineapple Punch re-inker.  You can use any yellow re-inker for the center, or for the other colors too.  Use your imagination and change up the color scheme. 

It sure was hard getting a good image of the shimmer and color at the same time.  You should see it in person!  WOW!

Noble Peacock in 3 Colors

PicsArt_04-09-09.22.08

Guys, I have no idea what I have been waiting for!  I do not know why I have neglected this really cool stamp set, dies, and the BEST foil papers!  The Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper AND Noble Peacock Foil Sheets are just stunning.  I love that fact that they coordinate together.  

I have to laugh at myself... every time I look at the tail feathers, all I can think of is a Vegas Showgirl costume.  LOL!

Anyway, here are three monochromatic cards I did in Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay. Yes!  Bermuda Bay... I think this is a BONUS coordinating color with the Specialty DSP, don't you?  The catalog and packaging says Pretty Peacock but I think you can use either one.

Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper

PicsArt_08-19-04.50.05

I wanted to show you another card using the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper.  If you missed my last post showing this paper, check it our HERE as I have added a video!

Both the background and music piece are from this Designer Series paper.  Pressed Petals is so pretty, you can dress it up or leave it plain and add a simple sentiment.  I chose to dress it up. Doesn't this make for a great fall birthday?  Of course, it could be for just about any occasion; retirement, thinking of you, get well, and more. 

The background piece is cut 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 as I just wanted a slim boarder showing the Night of Navy card base.  Standard card base 8-1/2 x 5-1/2.

The music sheet piece is cut 4-1/8 x 2.  

The picture does not do justice for the Gold Foil pieces.  The berry sprigs (in Gold Foil) and leaves (in Mossy Meadow) are from the Frosted Bouquet Dies.  And then I layered the Stitched Nested Label die in Gold Foil as well.  Helps make it stand out a little, don't you think?

My favorite accent used to dress up the card is the piece of Night of Navy ran through one of the dies from the Detailed Lace Dies.  I just adore that die, but all three are pretty great with lots of detail.
