Creating Embellishments With Shimmerz!

Hi everyone!  Jaime Warren here with you today with a fun little tutorial on creating embellishments with Shimmerz products!  It's a super easy way to add some sparkle, and dimension to your layouts.  You'll need the following Shimmerz products:

 Enamelz in Super Sparkle
 Blingz in Hottie Pink
Shimmerz in Tickle Me Turquoise
Spritz in Cotton Candy
Spritz in Chick - a -dee
Shimmeringz in Baby's Breath
Shimmeringz in Goldie Lox

You will also need your favorite embossing tools and stamps. 

Here is the layout I created:

First, I do apologize for the crooked photo.  I could NOT get a straight shot of this layout to save my life.  I finally gave up lol!!

I created my two main embellishments with this fun and very simple little technique.  I simply stamped my favorite image using my embossing adhesive and then used my embossing tool to heat it up.  The shimmer from Enamelz is just incredible.  I am always fascinated by the way it transforms my stamped images. 

After I have finished embossing I simply cut out the stamped image and then adhere it to my layout using foam pop dots.  Viola!  Shine and dimension, easy peasy!  To add even more shine and color I spritzed my layout with various Shimmerz products.  I also painted on my embossed tree using Blingz and Shimmerz. 

I hope you have enjoyed my little tutorial!  Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
