Playing with the NEW Colors!!!

I am just loving these fresh, juicy new colors!!! Check out the projects I've been using them on!

First, I have a layout about my daughter potty training. I used the Jilted Jade Shimmerz and the Island Salsa Blingz to change the color of my title letters. FUN!!! I also used the Jilted Jade Shimmerz to change the color of just the center pearl on the flower centers accenting my journaling block. Finally, I applied a color wash of Jilted Jade Shimmerz to a sheet of bookpaper and then cut out a circle to make a layered flower. :D :D :D

Supplies: Shimmerz Products: Island Salsa Shimmerz, Jilted Jade Blingz; Scrapbook Kit: Noel Mignon Rise and Shine: Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned & Die Cut Papers: Creative Imaginations, Collage Press, My Mind's Eye; Transparency: Hambly; Journal Page: Making Memories; Letter Stickers, Label Stickers, Pearl Flowers & Tickets: Jenni Bowlin; Chipboard: Scenic Route. Clear Accent: Fancy Pants; Rubons: Pink Paislee & Lily Bee Design; Velvet Brad: Creative Imaginations; Buttons: SEI; Stamps: ArtChix; Other: Embroidery Floss, Bookpaper


Next I created a Birthday Card. Yes, I know. My card isn't as fabulous as what you normally see on this blog! LOL! But I gave it a go, so be kind! ;)

I used the Shimmerz Caribbean Sunset Spritz on the bookpaper circle. I used the Jilted Jade Shimmerz, Tickle-Me-Turquoise Shimmerz, Island Salsa Blingz, and Gold Glimmer Blingz to paint the lamps. And then I painted the background cardstock with the Jilted Jade Shimmerz for a shimmery card base. I hope this card really "brightens" up someone's day! :)

Finally, I have one more layout (can you tell I was addicted to using these colors?!! :D :D :D ). On this one I used the Shimmerz Caribbean Sunset Spritz to accent a few spots on the background sheet as well as the diecut flowers. I used my Basic Grey Rubon Tool (with the rollerball tip) over my flowers on top of a foam pad to make the flower petals curl up.

Your card is adorable!!! I don't do a lot of stamping, so it is something a little out of my comfort zone :D Your layouts are absolutely stunning! I love the potty training...
