Shimmerz And Paper Popsicles

I had the pleasure of mixing shimmerz in with some wonderful products from Paper Popsicles! I just loved the bright, cheery colors of this kit!

Shimmerz takes center stage on this thank you card! I started by painting a piece of white cardstock with Tickle Me Turquoise shimmerz to create my own bling cardstock.

I stamped the flowers onto patterned paper, cut them out and painted with Pixie Dust blingz before adhering to the card. I think pixie dust is one of the most versatile of the blingz because you can paint over any patterned paper and still see the pattern...just with a little more sparkle!

For my layout, I used Baby's Breath and Tuscan Sun spritz and Pixie Dust Blingz. I wanted to tone down the brightness of the white in the background paper so that it coordinated with the other papers I used for this layout. I placed the background paper on a plastic bag and lightly spritzed the entire surface with Tuscan Sun shimmerz.

I dragged the torn edge of one of my patterned papers through the excess spritz that was left on the bag to get the look seen here.

I spritzed the ribbon with Baby's Breath Shimmerz-- I love the way it looks on satin ribbon.

I really wanted my blingz to stand out on the chipboard wings so I painted them with white acrylic paint first, then painted with 2 coats Baby's Breath blingz.

I hope these tips help you to get excited about trying Shimmerz's products! Thanks for taking a peek!
