So for those who don't know, a swap is a card front or 3D item that you make in bulk, which you then swap with other demos. I made 50 swaps to take with me to Orlando and i swapped them with 50 demo's. Which meant I brought 50 totally different cards home/ How cool is that!
I decided that I wanted to use the brand new, Snow is Glistening stamp set with the coordinating Snowfall Thinlit dies.
Honestly this set is absolutely beautiful and my photo's really don't show just how shimmery my card is:
I recently ordered the shimmer paints in Bright Copper and Frosted White and I have been wanting to play with them. I added a few drops of the shimmer paint to one of our spritzers and filled the rest with alcohol. This means that when I sprayed the cardstock the alcohol evaporates immediately and so it dries super fast.
I used one of the metal snowflake thinlit dies as a stencil and spritzed the shimmer paint to make my background. It really is stunning and so soft and glittery.
Now I know most people in Australia will say that snowflakes on Christmas cards aren't really traditional here, but the sentiment I used isn't actually themed for Christmas and so you could send this gorgeous card to anyone for any reason.
So once I got the hang of mixing my shimmer paints, I then decided to try changing the colours. Easy Peasy!! I added a few drops of reinker (the more drops, the darker the colour. I used about 4x for my shade), with a few drops of Frosted white shimmer paint and then filled the rest with Alcohol, and this was what I got:
Highland Heather and Coastal Cabana. Aren't they beautiful! I really couldn't decide which was my favourite and when I was swapping my card with others, they couldn't decide either.
Now of you would like to order the Snow is Glistening stamp set or the Snowfall thinlets, just pop over to MY STORE. Remember that this bundle is only available until Nov 30th or while stocks last. So please don't miss out!
