Coloring Glimmer Paper

This cool technique came from Andrea Withers from the Stampin’ Up home office.  I love how this turned out.

Simply take your reinkers and sponge dauber and pounce on your glimmer paper. Be sure to let dry completely before adding to your project.

This one is using the Island Indigo reinker on Silver Glimmer Paper

Try using different colors with the other glimmer papers.

It’s Raining Cards

This is sort of a non Stampin’ Up! topic, but I had to share what I call a super cool card tree holder that I received from my friend, Lori. It’s very difficult to photograph and really grasp what the whole thing looks like. It was originally meant to hold photo’s, but as you can see it’s a great way to display cards as well. The size also adjusts so it can be displayed on a tabletop. The brand name is by Umbra and here is the link if you’re interested.   Umbra Card / Photo Holder

Thank you again Lori for this awesome and thoughtful gift.
