do you love to SHIMMER?

my friend Molly has been gracious enough to include me in the creation (ok i only did the playing UH i mean testing) of these incredible shimmering paints called Inspirations and i have just fallen in LOVE with them. the colors are amazing and the shimmer is off the charts!

i am covering the following challenges with today’s post:

Mojo Monday – Sketch
ABC Challenge – N is for New – heart charm
Stamp Something – Love Somethings


blog tag

today i have a project to show you that incorporates TWO techniques with the paints.  want to know how i did them?  then afterward i will tell you where to find the tutorial as well as a YUMMY blog truffle!  sound good? sweet let’s go!

My card uses Creative Inspirations Paints in TWO fun ways. one for the stamp and another for the background. the cuttlebugged background is a FAVE technique of mine called cuttlebug smoosh but this time i used CI paints instead of ink from an inkpad.  i used Pink Highlights Shimmer Paint so there is loads of shimmer with a hint of pink when the light hits it just right!


i also used CI paint for my heart stamp – quick, simple technique.

now how cool is that??? what? you need more info on how to do these?  then head over to the CI blog and check out my post there – same project but more in-depth instruction.  you don’t have any of these cool paints yet?? well you’re in luck – that’s where the blog truffle comes in!

Molly has SO generously offered to give one lucky randomly chosen winner their choice of FIVE pots of these yummy paints!!!!

what do you have to do???  you will find the instructions on the CI blog too!

then on Monday i will be posting another project to the CI blog using this stamping technique plus yet another technique for a cool background. after that post i will have a winner AND a BIG announcement for you!! you WON’T want to miss THAT!!

Want to know where you can purchase these paints?  all of the colors are IN STOCK at SCACD!!

better blog siggy
