♥Birthday Gift Set♥ {A Shimmerz and Flourishes Project!}

Today on the Shimmerz Blog, we will be showcasing some projects that the DT recently made with Flourishes stamps! Yup, Shimmerz and Flourishes did a little swap of products and we on the Shimmerz team got to play with these AWESOME stamps! I just L~O~V~E Flourishes! Their stamps have such great detail to them and they are just the cutest! So if you have time, please stop by the Shimmerz blog today and show us some support and lovin'! ;)

I decided to make a Birthday Gift Set with my All Wrapped Up stamp Set by Flourishes and of course, some beautiful Shimmerz Paints! I first stamped the presents twice with black Staz-On, colored them in with Copics, then applied some Shimmerz paints over the coordinating colors. (I used Pixie Dust, Pink Poinsettia, Hotty Pink and Wintergreen Blingz, Opal, Candle Light and Sunny Shimmerz and Cotton Candy and Baby's Breath Spritz.) I then trimmed them out with little scissors and/or a craft knife, just cutting out the bows on the second images. I then adhered the bows with some mini pop-dots.

My card base and gift card holder was ran through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. I used some sheer ribbon and some Creative Imaginations felt ribbon on everything. The gift card holder is actually a paper towel roll, which I cut into the right size, flattened it out, and hot glued the bottom to make the pocket. I then adhered the white cardstock to the front and back. It makes for a nice and sturdy holder and it's "green". Hope you enjoyed everything!

I'll be back tomorrow with another Shimmerz project, this time using the new colors which will be released tomorrow! Have a great day!!

Hugs,
