Happy & Grateful 12x12 Layout | Nicole Kerr

Hello Shimmerz Fans!

Nicole here and today I'm sharing a very dimensional 12x12 layout with you!
This is one of those types of layouts that I probably will not put in an album. Instead, I'll hang this  on my office wall. For this layout, I used a cut file by Paige Evans to create rolled flowers. Here's a look at the completed layout:

Everyone, please meet Cooper!  Cooper is our now 15 week old Golden Retriever! On this day, Cooper and I were sitting on the sofa and I attempted some "selfie" like photos and snapped this cutie!  For this layout, I used the Horizon collection for the accents, leaves and rolled flowers.  When I purchased this collection, I was very excited to match my Shimmerz with it to create a fun background. From my collection, I found that Vibes Cold As Ice and Inklingz Precious Posey were near perfect matches! 

I used both of these colors, along with a hint of Vibez Pink Moscatto to create today's background! After creating and adhering my rolled flowers to my background, I misted the entire page with Shimmeringz Baby's Breath to give all of the patterned paper paper a subtle hint of shimmer. Baby's Breath is one of those "must have" mists in my collection because its a great layering product for a project like this! Here are additional close ups of my finished layout:

Here are the Shimmerz products that I used in today's layout:

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you've been inspired!

Kindness Card | Julee Tilman

Hi Shimmerz friends! It's Julee Tilman popping in to share a shabby chic card with you. The star of the show today is Coral Reef Inklingz. This color can be found in the beautiful Missy Whidden May Color Kit, or individually in the shop. It's a stunning soft rosy pinkish-peach with shimmer!  So beautiful and perfect for any spring or summer occasion.

This dreamy color reminded me of a pack of ephemera I had with similar colors, so I pulled it out and started work on the card. I did a wash background with the Coral Reef Inklingz  on watercolor paper from dark to light, for a nice ombre effect.  I then stamped the beautiful kindness sentiment in black on the panel and layered the rose ephemera and a butterfly around it.  To really pull the colors together, I added some highlights of Coral Reef Inklingz to both pieces of ephemera.

I didn't have any ribbon to match, so decided to used the Coral Reef Inklingz to dye it the right color.  To do this, I started with a length of white seam binding ribbon and spritzed generously with water.  I then painted the Coral Reef Inklingz onto the ribbon and sprayed with more water. Then when everything was saturated, I crinkled the ribbon into a ball and let it dry. Tada, perfectly color matched ribbon like we're back in the 90's matching our shoes to our velvet pumps! 😆

To finish off the card, I distressed the edges with a paper distresser and added a bit of adhesive pearl flourishes to the bottom.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! As always, if you place an order in the Shimmerz shop, mention my name, Julee Tilman, in the comments so they know who sent ya! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope your day Shimmerz!

I absolutely love the exclusive cut file from Paige Evans that's in the May Missy Whidden color kit. I cut it out from plain textured white cardstock and didn't add any gesso to it before applying my color. I really wanted the flowers to curl up so that it would create dimension and shadows on my paper.

I took all of my sprays and original Shimmerz and painted on the cut file.  I added some darker shades to portions of each flower/stems to give them some depth.

When you're in the shop, don't forget to pick up some of the newly released Shimmerz Dotz! They're a perfect embellishment to any project!  Epoxy flatback flairs in all sorts of designs!

Live laugh Love Together | Niki Rowland

Hiya Shimmerz Fans, Niki here today with another layout to share. I was inspired by layouts I've seen around lately with thick coloured stripes on the background so I thought I'd try that out for my layout today.

I choose four colours of Shimmerz paints that I thought would match my papers well. They are: Going Peach Side, Bumbly Bee, Orange Sherbert and It's Mint to Be. All these are original Shimmerz paints and I used them with a thick paintbrush straight out of the pot. There was no need to add any water as they are already the perfect consistency.

Once my stripes were painted and dry I added a little tone on tone stamping with a set of border stamps. I then flicked paint splatters in the same colours all over the stripes.

To make my layout I positioned my photo and title onto my layout and then added tone on tone embellishments. I've used Oh Happy Day by Simple Stories for this layout as well as an acrylic word by Bramble Fox.
 Thanks so much for joining me today. Don't forget if you place an order via the Shimmerz Store and put my name in the comments you will recieve a freebie - happy days!

Happy scrapping everyone xx

Blessings in the Storm | Ericka Strange

Hello Shimmerz fans, Ericka here again with a rainy day watercolor card. I don't know about you, but here in Texas we've had our fair share of rain over the last couple of weeks. This cute set from Shimmerz called Blessing in the Storm is the perfect reminder to look on the bright side of things.

And isn't this dog is the cutest? And the sentiments are so fun!

I stamped the image in InkOn3 Fadeout ink so that I could try my hand at no line watercoloring. I started with spraying a little Chick-a-dee Spritz on my pallet and painted the yellow portions. I also used a little orange on my pallet to give a little more shading to the darker areas. Once that portion dried, I used 1 Hot Mama Creameez for the rest of her outfit the cute boots!

I used Shimmerz in Evergreen for the grass and the rain and puddles were Shimmerz Tickle Me Turquoise. I added a couple of rain drops so that it would be more realistic of Texas rainfall lol. Coffee Shimmerz was the perfect color for my little dog. To finish the card, I did a light wash with Steely Blue Inklings for the sky.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and if its rainy, wear your cute boots!
