My Sunshine- Scrapbooking Tutorial With Iri

Hi! Irit here with a new fun scrapbook layout to share with you. I used 3 of my favorite Shimmerz goodies to create the background, it was super easy and a lot of fun! Here's my finished page-

To create this striking background all you need are a few shimmerz sprays, watercolor paper (heavy weight cardstock will work as well) and some giant bubble wrap or similar packing material. You can see in the video tutorial the technique, it's really simple!
I used Vibez in Snow Way Man, Pop Art Pink and Spritz in Tuscan Sun. I overlapped them a little to create some interesting mixed shades. You can see it better in the close up shot, where the Snow Way Man mixed with Tuscan Sun to create a beautiful mint color.

I used the tip of the nozzle like a brush to add lines and shapes. Love the look it creates!

Here's the video tutorial-

Pops of sprayed color stars in this Thank You card

Hi Everyone, Beck Beattie today with a fun background to a sweet card I created using the my Shimmerz sprays to contrast against neutral tones of the pattern papers, florals and die cuts.

 Products Used:

Shimmerz Vibes Pop Art Pink
Shimmerz Spritz - Ruby
Shimmerz Spritz Cotton Candy

Other products:
Bella! New York Paperz 'Join Together' pattern paper
Bella Fundamentals doilies
Bella Fundametals square cards - grey
Ruby Rock-It Faded Empire Collection Florals
RG Silver and gold collection - full bloom
Fun Stampers Journey - 'Circle Bliss' stencil
silver cord
white and grey cardstock

To create the colorful contrasting background I first layered up the three colors of Shimmerz sprays overlapping some of the colors in areas.  I then dried off this layer before adding and additional layer using a stencil.  I used the stencil by spraying the 'Pop Art Pink' onto the stencil and then stamped with it over the now colored cardstock.

To create the contrast I then added a number of die cuts in a neutral tone (Grey) and adhered them cutting off the excess before adding this onto my card with pattern paper and florals and embellishments.

The Shimmers sprayed color really pops against the grey die cuts and the effect looks so wonderful!
Here are some more pics so you can get up close to my project today :)

I Hope you enjoyed my share today.

Happy Crafting!

Baby Card using Shimmerz Coloringz & AcriTonez

Hello There Friends,

It's Renee here, ready to share a video tutorial
on how to make a funky Baby Card
using Shimmerz Coloingz & AcriTonez.

I have made this card to be A4 in size as the 
entire staff at the school I work at will be signing it
to give to her on her last day of work before maternity leave.

I love the colors and how it turned out.

Here are some close-ups:

The Shimmerz Products used are:

Shimmerz Coloringz - Shades of Gray, No Yoking & Night Moves.
Shimmerz AcriTonez - 3 Sheets to the Wind & Shimmerz Tar Tar.

Lots of layering and texture on the background.

I used a silhouette file for the word "Baby"
and I mixed AcriTonez to paint over the Chipboard "G".

I made my own patterned paper for the balloons
which I will show you in the video below.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! xx
And don't forget to mention my name when you order.

Here With You Always | Adrienne Alvis

Hello, Shimmerz fans! I'm here with you today to share my latest 12x12 layout that I created using some gorgeous Shimmerz paints!

I started by choosing some of my favorite Coloringz inks in "Don't Citron Me", "Mamma Sings the Blues", and "Mandarin Mai Tai" and used the packaging technique to create the background for my layout.  I simply misted these Coloringz on some leftover plastic packaging and smeared them around  some white cardstock as you can see in the photo below.

After the Coloringz dried, I used a triangle stencil from my stash and some Dazzlerz shimmering dimensional paste in "Red-iculous" for even more texture and color.

Next up, I added lots of patterned paper pieces and die cut embellishments from Pinkfresh Studio because the colors coordinated so well with my photo and the Coloringz inks.

I love how fun this page turned out with the silly photo of my youngest son and his blue mustache he got out of a vending machine at a local Mexican restaurant, lol!

Thanks so much for joining me and I hope you have a fabulous day!

Summer Fun Layout with Missy

Hey, friends!  Missy here.  I have a fun Summer layout to share today.  I decided to create an artsy background using several different Shimmerz products.  I chose three colors to start with: Spritz Caribbean Sunset, Vibez Pop Art Pink and Coloringz No Yoking.  I used two different stencils and sprayed through them.  I decided to add a brighter pink, so I brought in Coloringz Pink Stilettos and used the packaging technique.  My photo has a lot of blue in it, so I added just a small amount of blue to the background.  I also used a few gelatos and smudged them with my fingers.

I used bits and pieces from the Fancy Pants Joy Parade collection.  It's perfect for Summer photos!  I layered in a few tags and die cuts as well as a few epoxy stickers from the Amy Tangerine Rise & Shine collection.

I used a small grid stencil here.  Once I sprayed through it, I flipped it over and used it as a stamp.  I love the blending of colors.  I didn't even know what I was going to embellish with until I got the background colors down.  I love when things just match without even trying :)  I added some different colors of sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps.  They matched perfectly, too!

Layering is such a great way to create dimension on layouts.  I tucked in a few tags, circles and fun wonky stars.  I love that cute cloud from Amy Tan.

I used the packaging technique with the No Yoking here.  I used Creameez Ride the Tide and Shimmerz Winter's Mist to create these blue splatters.

Here you can see how different the gelatos look on the cardstock versus the ink sprays.  I didn't use any gesso on my cardstock, so the texture of it shows really well through all the products.

Here's a close-up of the bottom cluster.  I love all the mix of colors :)

Here's my process video if you'd like to check it out.  I hope you're inspired and get some fun ideas!
