Let's put a little Shimmer in our Lives for There's A Card Thursday

 Today I thought I needed a little Shimmer in my life.  We just made the decision that we will not be heading out for the winter and will be staying her and I really am sad.  I totally agree but still sad that we will not be camping all winter, meeting new people and seeing new sights.  So let's shimmer today.

I used Shimmer Paint, Refiller and Alcohol to make the spray.  I then just sprayed the background.

Let's see this in action.  I hope it cheers me up a little.

Round 2 What to do with Scraps - There's A Card Thrusday


I promised you another card using Scraps from the 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper stacks.  There are so many ways to use scraps that these are just 2 ways. 

I love this card as you can use different styles and colors.

Let's look at the video.

Product List

Supplies: Stamp Set - Lovely You [152525]; Ink - Tuxedo Black Memento [132708]; Cardstock - Bumblebee 8 ½ x 5 ½  [153077], Scrap Cardstock for Label; Designer Series Paper - 2020–2022 In Color 6" X 6" 2 – 6 x 2 [153070]; Accessories - Mini Glue Dots [103683], Stampin' Dimensionals [104430], Paper Trimmer [152392].


  1. Cut the 2 x 6 down to 5 ¼ x 2. Save the smaller piece we will use that also (never throw anything away.)
  2. Attach the 2 x 5 ¼ to the Card Base right next to each other.
  3. You can now place the ¾ x 2 on the 2 x 5 ¼. You can do it by putting them on the opposite side, turning them over and putting them on backside on the same color or the other color.  You can put them in the middle, as I have, at the top or bottom experiment.
  4. With Memento Black Stamp the saying on your pre-cut label
  5. Attach your Label to the Card.

 I hope you really like this card.  If you have did then think about my On-Line Party on October 3 on Facebook
