Custom Made Melon Mambo Glimmer Paper, please meet Detailed Santa!
I was cleaning up my stamping studio when I came across a Detailed Santa cut out of Basic Black card stock. Obviously a left over from my Tie Dyed Santa stamping projects!
I knew I had to use this last piece before I put the Detailed Santa Thinlits dies away for the season.
I also had a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper in my stack of scraps, and an idea started to form. I laid the black piece over the glimmer piece, but didn't quite like the look. The Dazzling Diamonds paper was just too bright and Santa was lost on it. mmmm... Why not tone down the glimmer paper by adding a softer shade of pink?
So, I got out my Melon Mambo ink and pad and a sponge and went to work.
Making custom color glimmer paper to match Stampin' Up!'s colors is super simple.
You can fill a Stampin' Spritzer bottle with rubbing alcohol, add a few drops of reinker, shake to mix, then spritz it on the paper.
Or simply sponge on the color using a sponge or sponge dauber like I did.
To finish the card, I heat embossed the greeting from Greetings from Santa using white embossing powder. I then swiped on some Melon Mambo using the excess ink on my sponge.
The possibilities are endless!
What color of custom made glimmer paper is in your future?
