I LOVE the shimmer paints!

Hi Everybody!

Let me first apologize for being absent for the past month! Between getting the kids back to school, my trip to see U2 in concert and then another trip to Ottawa for a friends wedding - I've barely been home! But now I'm back and sharing a new Christmas card with you.

I love how this card looks like it took lots of time, but how simple it truly was! I used the Rich Razzleberry card stock as the card base - I love this color. I then used the Platinum Shimmer paint on one of the snowflakes from the Serene Snowflakes set and stamped it randomly over the card base. The focal point of the card was created using a piece of 3x3" Whisper White card sock and the Rich Razzleberry ink. The largest snowflake was stamped with the full ink, then I inked up a small snowflake, stamped it off once and then stamped it onto the Whisper White card stock randomly. The greeting is from the Four the Holidays stamp set in the new Holiday Mini and stamped in Basic Black ink. I then mounted it onto a piece of 33/4" square brushed Silver card stock and mounted it onto the card base with some dimensionals. C'est tout! Quick and easy and that's is why this will be one of the cards we will be making at my Christmas Card class on October 24th. So that's it for tonight. Thanks for stopping by, and as always, feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think!
Until then,
Happy Stampin'

These colors are great and so is your card. I love snowflakes. I may have to make something similar for my Christmas cards.

Pretty card. Nice to see an idea of how to use that shimmer paint, I have all three colours but haven't figured out how to use them. How did you apply them to the stamp, with a qtip or something?
