Copper Shimmer Paint and Winter Woods

I love Shimmer Paints and am thrilled to see them return in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue by Stampin’ Up!

Although there are lots of techniques for using the paints one of my favourite ways is to use them in place of ink.

I used the Copper Shimmer Paint and the Winter Woods stamp set to make the square cards. Also included is a super simple one layer card made with Night of Navy as a comparison to the shimmery look of the other cards. 

Winter Woods makes great masculine or sympathy cards in addition to beautiful Christmas cards.


Shimmer Paint by Stampin Up


Winter Woods with Copper Shimmer Paint on Crumb Cake

I inked up the stamp in Night of Navy and then applied Copper Shimmer Paint over the ink before stamping. You can use the huffing technique to re-moisten the stamp. The greeting is from Winter Woods but I omitted the last two lines. This card also uses Crumb Cake card stock.


Winter Woods with Copper Shimmer Paint on Night of Navy

A simple version with Copper Shimmer Paint applied to the stamp and then stamped onto Night of Navy card stock.


Copper Shimmer Paint applied with plastic wrap

I like to apply the shimmer paint directly to the stamp with a wadded up piece of plastic wrap. It applies the shimmer paint evenly and clean up is a breeze – just toss the wrap into the trash.

I pour a drop of shimmer paint onto an acrylic block to pick up with the wrap. You don’t need much because a little goes a long way.

To clean the stamp after I’m done, I stamp off as much of the shimmer paint as I can and then clean the stamp as usual.
