Shimmer Paint Christmas (Video)

Missed my post yesterday? I did 2 on Wednesday and thought I’d give you a break. So, today I have Shimmer Paint Christmas. This was so much fun, really. It is a bit messy but you’re not having fun unless you get messy or is that inky?

This was the first of the two cards I made during my Love with Libby on Tuesday. I used the Merry Christmas To All Photopolymer Bundle. After the Emboss Resist Technique with the Frost White Shimmer Paint, it was a collaborative effort to complete the card.

Did you miss Tuesday’s Live With Libby? It’s a bit of fun and we have a laugh while I make mistakes but get the cards completed in the end.

Use Shimmery White A4 Card Stock and a mixture of Frost White Shimmer Paint, Merry Merlot Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill and Rubbing Alcohol in a Stampin’ Spritzer. Emboss using Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and your trusty Heat Tool.

Tip: Wipe the surface of the card with an Embossing Buddy before stamping, to remove static and fingerprints.

Use Shaded Spruce A4 Cardstock for the layer behind the Shimmery White A4 Card Stock and then use Shaded Spruce Classic Stampin’ Pad to stamp an image on the inside of the card and the Whisper White C6 Envelopes.

Use Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets to embellish the card.

Play around with the mixture until you’re happy with it. This mixture had about 20 drops of Merry Merlot Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill in it and we used A4 Glossy White Cardstock. The mixture tended to pool a bit on this cardstock, so just use a paper towel or similar to soak up any excess. Rub over the embossed areas with the paper towel too.

We decided on the Gold Pearls from the Metallic Pearls to decorate this card. Play around with the embellishments until you’re happy. Opinion was divided on whether this card should have a bow from the Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ (1.6 Cm) Reversible Ribbon. It looks great on the top card but not so sure on this card. What do you think?

The words were die cut using the Big Shot and Big Shot Magnetic Platform with Gold Foil Sheets and Silver Foil Sheets. Use Gold Foil Sheets as a backing layer for one of the cards.
