Adding Color to the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper!



It's still Sale-A-Bration time and I'm using a Sale-A-Bration product today. Notice the pretty colors and patterns in the card bases? Not only are they pretty but they are FREE! You get 16 card bases and 16 envelopes and these are called Tutti-frutti Cards & Envelopes:


How do you earn these for free? By placing a $50 order. That easy! So I also noticed that the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper had two coordinating colors in the pack to match two of the card bases:


Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper 6" X 6"
Item #145601
Price $15.00

At last—a no-mess way to add glitter accents! This paper is embedded with small pieces of glitter. Glitter won't brush off or flake off so there's no clean up.
24 glittered sheets: 8 each of 3 colors (Iridescent, light green, turquoise)

Because this glimmer paper has the Iridescent color, I decided to experiment. I wanted all four of my card bases to have coordinating glimmer paper so take a peek at what I did and I'll explain after you view the four photos:






Did you notice the So Saffron and Calypso Coral Glimmer Papers? Where did they come from? I made them myself and here's how:

1. Cut the desired size of the Iridescent Glimmer Paper. Here I used 4-3/4" x 3-1/2". Add a few drops of re-inker. In this sample I am using Calypso Coral Ink Re-fill:



2. Squeeze a little bit of water onto the glimmer paper from the Aqua Painter and spread the color. Keep adding water as needed to even out the color:



3. Allow to settle for a few minutes and then press on top of the color with a tissue to absorb excess ink. I also used the So Saffron Ink Re-fill on a 2nd sheet and once dry, this is what they both looked like:



These are all four layered over Whisper White Cardstock:


Isn't that neat? Now go place your $50 order by including the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper and add in the Tutti Fruit Cards & Envelops for FREE! And don't forget to add in my monthly hostess code to earn more FREE products!
