Everything old is new again!

If you have been scrapbooking and/or stamping for a while, you might be like me - equipped with enough supplies to quite possibly keep your grandchildren happy until they're grandparents! So why not pull out your foam stamps and give them a whirl with Shimmerz! You won't believe how easy it is, and what a great end result you get.


First, give your jar a nice shake to mix the paint. (Here I am using Royal Red - yum!) Then, when you open the lid, use that as your palette. It hardly takes any paint for a fantastic effect!

Next, just paint it onto your stamp!


Stamp as usual.


And look at the fantastic image you get!



Here, I just die cut the image, layered it (notice I edged that layer behind with more Royal Red - I just used what was left on my foam brush) and made a card around it. I love having multi-purpose cards like this on hand, so this is the perfect addition to my stash.


And just look at that shimmer - gorgeous!
I hope that I've inspired you to pull out your foam stamps and pair them up with your Shimmerz paints!

Be well, Jenn
