Shakin Summer Shimmerz!!



Having a little playtime with my Shimmerz!!! and I just added a whole bunch of new colors to my collection. In the meantime, here's a little sample for someone special!!!! She's a true friend. We both love stamping, creating and papercrafting. I love that we can be honest, genuine and critical of each other's work without being offended or offending - and I've never felt that it was a competition between us - very mutual respect. Off it goes in the mail to her...

Card details - the base is SU Marigold cardstock - I wish for the life of me I could remember the pattern paper because I really love it - I know I have more - I store my pattern paper by company and short of going through each of my pattern paper sleeves.... well - I just can't remember. I know that either Kim or Lori will probably know the minute they see it.... let me know - ok? The rubber stamps are from Kim Hughes Collection at Cornish Heritage Farms. The stamped swirls on the background were done using pigment ink. Tree was stamped twice, cut out and paper pieced (love that technique) and a perfect little song bird is from Prima (painted of course with Shimmerz). Sentiment was computer generated and paper handcut for little banner. Hope you enjoy and can get a glimpse of what Shimmerz can add to your papercrafting enjoyment. Enjoy and Create, Lila Pin It

Oh, and the PP looks like Autumn Leaves to me but I am not positive! I gotta get those Prima paper birds!

Good job Lila. I can't believe how creative everyone is with Shimmerz. Your friend is very lucky to receive a card like that one! Keep up the great work.
