Trim it

100_2385
Here is an idea for the darling 1/4" Sweater Trim in the Holiday Catalog. I ran a thin bead of Tombow Multi-purpose Liquid Glue along the outside edge of the Gumball Green cardstock circle. Then I laid the Sweater Trim on top of the glue circle. AFTER it had dried, I tied a square knot and trimmed the ends. Quite simply!

How to "Shimmer"

100_2130
It's EASY to add shimmer to your paper creations! Stampin' Up! offers three colors of Shimmer Paint: Champagne, Frost White, and Platinum. SHAKE well. Open and fill a sponge dauber in the LID of the jar. A little paint goes a long way. Rub the dauber lightly over your paper. I looks especially lovely on cardstock that has been run through an embossing folder so it has raised designs.

100_2131
This leaf is sponged with the Champagne Shimmer Paint. It looks even more impressive in person!

100_2132
