Sneak Peek Part 2

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's sneak peek from tomorrow's shows. I thought I'd actually share 3 cards to give you more of an idea of what you can do with the Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paints.

I did one of my random backgrounds on this one but I used Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paints instead of Distress Inks.

I started by spritzing a piece of Milk Card with Clover Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Ink Spray Mist. I popped a little Pink Plum Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint onto my Craft Sheet. I picked a little up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and used it to randomly ink through one of the elements of the Ornate Elements Mask. I added a little Warm White Matt Chalk Paint to the Pink Plum Shimmer Paint, which lightens the Shimmer Paint and makes it matt, and then randomly inked through the Random Fleur de Lys Mask using Cut n Dry Foam. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with Sue's Quilted Flower Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I wrapped a piece of Cream Crochet Ribbon around the centre.


I stamped the image panel from the Justrite Irises Vintage Labels Four Stamp Set 3 times using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut them out using a Justrite Vintage Labels Four Die and inked through the die with Picked Raspberry.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Gratitudes Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using the smallest die from Sue's Granada Die Set from the Spanish Collection. I inked through the die with Picked Raspberry.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls to the corners and I pierced around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler.

Here's the second card -

For the background, I spritzed a piece of Milk Card with Purple Orchid Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Ink Spray Mist. I popped a litttle Violet Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint onto my craft sheet then using a piece of Cut n Dry Foam, I inked through one of the elements in the Ornate Elements Mask in each corner.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Irises Vintage Labels Four Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I started colouring in using the Violet Shimmer Paint adding a little water. Then I added a little Pearl Shimmer Paint to the Violet Paint. This lightened the Violet colour. I coloured in the areas as shown. Then I popped a little Green Aqua Shimmer Paint onto my craft sheet and added a little Warm White Matt Chalk Paint. The Chalk Paint lightened the Shimmer Paint and removed the shimmer to give it a matt chalk finish. I used this to colour in the leaves. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I cut the largest of the dies in Sue's Decorative Frames (Set B) die set from the Californian Collection out of Amethyst Card.

I tied a bow using Purple/Ivory Striped Grosgrain and added a Fancy Pearl Embellishment. I assembled the card as shown, again piercing around the edges with my ruler.

Here's the final card for today -

OK, so not a brilliant photo on this one, sorry. For the background, I applied some Warm Gold Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste through the Rope Frame Mask. I put it aside to dry.

I popped a little Bronze Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint onto my craft sheet. I picked some up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam. I used this to apply paint to the image from the Justrite Irises Vintage Labels Four. I then stamped the image onto a piece of Milk Card and cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four.

I tied abow using 2 lengths of Champagne Silky Crush Ribbon. I added a little Cream Pearl String. I popped a Light Brown Dazzler into a Metal Dazzler Setting and added this to my bow.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Cream 8mm Pearl to each corner and piercing around the edges.

I hope you've enjoyed this look at the potential of the lovely Shimmer Paints.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  29. Hi Julia,
    Thanks for letting us know about time change - will correct my Recordings! No way can watch Live now which is so disappointing!
    Unlike today's cards! They are gorgeous! My favourite is the second one but only because that's a favourite colour! Love them all really and looking forward to seeing you in action - even though delayed action - if you see what I mean!
    Thanks for the sneaky peeks and the close-up photos! I made a sneaky little order yesterday - glad I did!
    Safe travel tomorrow - another early start!
    Love Myra

  34. Hi Julia. Goodness me, you don't know whether you are coming or going with all of the time changes! I will check in the morning to see what the final times are.
    How great to have a Three-fer today. They are all beautiful, and you have shown us how versatile the Shimmer paints are. The blue one tops the lot, but the others are a very close joint second. Have a safe journey (at whatever time) tomorrow and enjoy the shows. Take care.
