Shimmery Joyous Celebrations

Everyone loves a little extra sparkle, especially at the holidays!  That's why I love a little Stampin'UP! shimmer paint.  This stuff is great, and so versatile.  You can add it to a few drops of re-inker in a small dish and use it to paint little berries on a wreath.  You can use it to sponge over a stencil to get a shimmery background image, or you can add it right to your rubber stamp, which is the technique I used for this card.

First, ink your Flowering Flourishes background stamp in Gumball Green, then use a sponge dauber to add some of the Champagne Shimmer paint directly to your stamp.  Then you can stamp onto the vanilla card base.  (Hint: if you shake your shimmer paint a little before you use it, you'll have enough in the cap to be able to sponge it onto the rubber.  A little of this sparkle goes a long way!)  Do the same thing with the Cherry Cobbler to make your ornament shimmery, too.

Shimmer on, stampin sisters!
