I couldn’t wait to try a new product from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog: the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint. There are many techniques you can use with this paint, and I’ll be trying each of them. Here is my project:
I used the Gray Granite cardstock to make a card base, and then cut a piece of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper — any wood grain you like is fine! I took the bottle of Bright Copper Shimmer Paint and shook it, pouring out a dime size dollop onto an acrylic stamping block. I then used the leaf stamp from Colorful Seasons and inked it up, spreading the pain out on the block and covering the stamp in a light coat. I stamped directly onto the wood-grained paper. I repeated this step to create a background of copper leaves. So fun! It takes only a few minutes to dry.
I used a scrap of Gray Granite to stamp the sentiment from a new stamp set called Flourish Filagree. I love this stamp set because it coordinates with the Pretty Label Punch – so easy! I love a punch! Remember this one?
So I punched out the sentiment after having stamped it with Cajun Craze. I took some Whisper White Thick cardstock and stamped some flowers of both sizes in Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, and Cajun Craze, and then cut them out with my Big Shot. I used the Joyous Noel 6 x 6 Glimmer paper in the copper color to cut out some small berry elements as well. From here, all I had to do was build my Fall Bouquet onto the background of shimmery copper.
I made a bow using the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and frayed the ‘tails’ of the bow before adhering with a glue dot. And done! I love the effect of the copper paint.
