It’s Thursday!  A very rainy Thursday here, perfect for staying inside and doing some stamping!  I am especially excited about today, because every third Thursday of the month I have the privilege of spending time with my club ladies from Fort Atkinson!  We always have a good time and I love showing them new stamping ideas.

This is one of the cards that we are making tonight at our club meeting.  I am showing the ladies a few ways you can use the Shimmer Paint.  The paint comes in three different colors (Champagne mist, Frost White, and Platinum).  I used the Champagne Mist (#116806) on my project here.  It’s one of those things in the catalog that you might look at and wonder what to do with it.  There are many ways to use it, a favorite of many is to create a fun Shimmer Mist Spray by mixing  80% Isopropyl Alcohol with a few drops of the Shimmer Paint in a 2 ounce spray bottle.  You can add as much or as little Shimmer Paint as you want, depending on how shimmery you want your project.  Tonight I am showing my club how to use the Shimmer Paint direct to paper, by taking a sponge and applying it to the cardstock.   See all those shimmers?!  Isn’t it just so pretty?!   I definitely dresses up the card.  The Designer Series Paper on this card is from the Comfort Cafe collection.  The colors I used are Midnight Muse, Cajun Craze, Summer Starfruit, and Crumb Cake.  Yes, one of my favorite combos right now!

I you want more information on becoming a part of one of my clubs let me know!  We are always accepting new members.  Thanks for stopping!

Be creative, Kristin
