Stamp & Create Product Spotlight ~ Shimmerz

Happy Thursday! Today I want to show you a card that show-cases some of my very favorite things! The product spotlight over at Stamp & Create is Shimmerz! This is the perfect and easy way to add some sparkle to your project. I just mix my little pot of Shimmerz very well and then apply it to my image using a small paint brush.

For the next two weeks, all Shimmerz products will be on sale for 25% off over at Stamp & Create, so now is the perfect time to pick up a few of them! I have quite a number of them but my very favorite ones are Angel Wings & Candlelight.

For my card, I inked up these cute Swiss Pixies that I just received. They are really so sweet and innocent and I love working with them. I saw these three grouped together somewhere in blogland and just fell in love with the combination and so the idea is not mine but I cannot remember whose it is!  The front piece where the image is opens up into a mini-card which is the perfect place to slip in a gift card. You can see how it opens up where the ribbon is untied. I think you also get a better idea of the effect that Shimmerz gives.

I couldn’t resist adding another sweet image to the inside along with a happy sentiment. I paper pierced around the edges just to give it some added interest.

Once again, the bottom photo is taken from a different camera angle and you can see the Shimmerz effect. I thought it would cute on her eyelids as well as on the wings and the flower!

Thanks for swinging by today and taking a look! I hope this inspires you to try out Shimmerz if you have not already used it before!

Have a fantastic day!

Hi Jeanette,

Oeh, I love this card, beautiful! Love that you also did a stamp on the inside, wow, that makes it really special to open it up and a surprise on the inside! Lovely!! Yes, the glitter is beautiful, I understand you love it! I also use Ranger Glossy Accents quite often, also because I love the touch of it. No glitter there, but shiny surface and feels smooth, when you let it dry. Do you know that?
Love this card!!!
