A Tip and a Peek!!!!

WE woke to light blowing snow...but if it does this all is gonna amount to's the kind that sneeks up on you. Finished the projects for next months Stamper's 10 thought I'd wet your whistle, and give you all a Sneek Peek.

One is an excelent technique to use on your Christmas Cards and Holiday Scrapbook pages. The other would meake a cute little gift, or stocking stuffer!!!!

And for our TIP.... I haven't tried it yet...but have seen some projects using this...and it is neat....I know alot of you love the Tattered Angels Shimmering Sprays....well now you can make your own. In an empty fine mist spray bottle, fill about half way with rubbing alcohol and about 1/2 teaspoon of the Shimmery Paint. This is the same method I have used in the past with Pearl Ex paint, to give your card stock a Shimmery Effect. The Champagne Mist is beautiful, and the Frosted White gives darker card stock a silvery glimmer. Shake well, and apply a fine spritz to your cardstock. The card stock will curl, as it always does when you get it wet, so place a book or something heavy on it while it is drying. You can use a heat tool to speed up the drying process. The glitter doesn't rub off after drying, like the Pearl Ex does. I want to play with it and add a few drops of reinkers....I think you should be able to get colors that way. This makes your Shimmer Paints work even harder....You can also dab them onto your stamps and stamp, or dab them direct to paper for a shimmery look. This technique gives a very overall shimmery look!!!!
