CHRISTMAS BELLS ARE RINGING...

Today I finally have my computer back from Apple and functional!!!  I have been lost without it, so I had to jump right on and post this cute Christmas card I made at a Downline meeting.  My last card featuring the Blended Seasons set since it is leaving us tomorrow...  *sniff*   I switched it up to use the New Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder from the upcoming Holiday Catalog!  So cute!  And guess what is coming back in the Holiday Catalog???  SHIMMER PAINT!  And that means my beloved Shimmer Mist will be returning to my holiday cards.  Cue the Happy Dance!!!


Unfortunately, you cannot see the shimmer in this picture.  I didn't realize until I went to post it today and I already gave the card away.   But trust me, it is there spritzed on the embossed Old Olive layer!  I will post other cards featuring Shimmer Mist soon though.  For those who are not familiar with my Shimmer Mist, here is the recipe!

SHIMMER MIST RECIPE:
  1. Label an empty Stampin' Spritzer bottle  with the mixture you are making.  For this card, mine is labeled Champagne Mist.
  2. Fill with 70% rubbing alcohol -- although 90% will dry quicker, the mist will not spray as fine and may even clog completely due to solids that form. 
  3. Add about 1/8 teaspoon of any of the new Shimmer Paints in the Holiday Mini Catalog.   I would begin with less and then gradually add more until you are happy with the results.
  4. Add 5-15 drops of any color Reinker to create your own custom colored Shimmer Mist!  I find the Champagne Shimmer Mist lends itself very well to coloring.  Be sure to shake vigorously before EACH application!!!  
  5. This is very important, even if it has only been a short time since you last sprayed it.
Please remember that tomorrow is the LAST DAY to earn Bonus Day Coupons for September purchases as well as the last day to purchase the Color Your Season products: Blended Seasons stamp set, Stitched Seasons Framelits and the new Watercolor Pencils 2!
