OMGoodness…if you want to add glitz and glam to any project, add the following to your stampin' stash of accessories:
- Stampin' Spritzer 126185 – you get 2 for $3
- Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper 135315 – you get 2 sheets for $5 **this is glimmer paper like non other. The glitter is embedded so glitter won't brush off. Seriously you have to try it and compare to the 'sale' brands!
- Ink Refills – shown above in Old Olive. You'll want ink refills JUST for your spritzers!
Quick thank you to my downline Davette Miller for showing us at Stamp-a-palooza how easy it is to add this glam to any project.
Working with Spritzers and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper:
Tip 1: Punch or Die Cut shape first – Once the Glimmer Paper is Spritzed it gets stiffer and more difficult to cut.
Tip 2: You can use either water or rubbing alcohol. Water will make it a softer and lighter tint. Rubbing alcohol will be it more vibrant. In the picture - the lighter ones were spritzed with water and the darker with Rubbing alcohol.
How many ink refill drops? That's up to you! Good rule of thumb is to start out with less drops as you can always add more to intensify the color. Ok to re-spritz! I was spritzing a lot of trees so I filled up 1/2 way with rubbing alcohol and about 7 drops of ink. Tip! find other shapes to spritz using your left over color! You can spritz on paper too using Decorative Masks.
(big smile) WARNING – this is addictive and if you think you will like this, I would recommend ordering several spritzers and reinkers at once.
Here's my progression using the water formula:
Punch out trees – note how you can use both directions of tree image to maximize your strip of glimmer paper!
Next, grab your Stampin' UP! box your goodies were shipped in. You will need a spritz box to protect your work surface and surrounding areas. Spritz away! If all images same color – spritz all at once. The water base is wetter (I know..dah!) – alcohol base dries almost on contact and not as messy.
Take care my stampin' friends!***********************
