Copper Shimmer Paint and Winter Woods

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.

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.

I’m raving about … the Simply Shammy

Simply Shammy by Stampin Up

I have become a huge fan of the Simply Shammy. Where, oh where has it been all of my stamping life?

Life before the Shammy: All of my stamps where piled up waiting to be cleaned once I got around to it. And my blocks were all waiting with the stamps so I never seemed to have a clean block.

Life after the Shammy: Grab the shammy, clean the stamp and block and move on. I even feel more creative with less clutter.

Make sure to add a Simply Shammy to you next order! You’ll be glad you did.

 

TIP: Cut the Shammy in half so it is easy to grab and to clean stamps while attached to the Stamparatus. And you can store the Shammy in a stamp case so it is moist and ready to go. If it does dry out completely, just work some water into it until is is pliable and ready to use.

 

Simply Shammy by Stampin Up

Here is my Simply Shammy after several weeks of use. Don’t worry about the ink stains.

And from the Stampin’ Up! website – This reusable stamp cleaning cloth makes stamp cleaning effortless. Just add water, then wipe stamps on the shammy. Durable, thick shammy easily cleans ink from narrow grooves. No lint, no chemicals—just clean! (Ink will stain shammy but won’t transfer to your fingers or other stamps.) With its portable 5″ x 7″ (12.7 x 17.8 cm) size it fits neatly in a stamp case.

Frosted Floral – Just in time

First Frost by Stampin Up

Snow! The forecast locally is calling for snow in less than a week. For real!

So, the Frosted Floral Suite is just in time. I love this suite and all the embellishments. The First Frost stamp set, the Frosted Bouquet Framelits, Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper, Tranquil Tide Velvet Ribbon, Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets, and the Iridescent Boxwood Wreaths all work together to make creating cards easy.

I also really like this set since there is a holiday greeting but also Congratulations and Wishing You All the Best so you can use the set year round.

 

Frosted Floral Suite

Included with the Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies is a really unique frame with two pieces. The outer layer cuts but the inner layer can be flipped and used two ways. There is a cutting edge that creates a smaller size to layer and a embossing edge that creates an embossed border. You can click on the first photo to enlarge the card to see the border more clearly.

Winter Woods – A Must Have!

Winter Woods and In the Wood Framelits

I love the diversity of the Winter Woods Bundle.

The Winter Wood stamp set features photorealistic stamps to create beautiful, natural cards.

The In the Woods Framelits Dies creates elegant, classic cut outs.

Put them together and you can make cards featuring the stamps and die cuts together. This mono-chromatic card was made with Tranquil Tide and highlighted with Silver Mini Sequins and Silver Thread. Make adding sequins to your card simple with the Take Your Pick Tool.

Winter Woods by Stampin' Up!

After inking up the stamp, I stamped each image three times without re-inking to get the layers of color to create generational images.
