TJ Inspirations - Gorgeous Glimmer Paste

I recently added Nuvo Glimmer Paste to the site, and after demoing it all last weekend, I thought it might be fun to show you one of the easy ways this beautiful product is used.

The stamp we are using, Throw Kindness, is one of the new stamps from the February release. Remember that the February 2017 release stamps are 15% off through February 8th. Just add any stamps from the category into your shopping cart and the discount will be automatically applied.

Throw Kindness

Nuvo Glimmer Paste - Amethyst Purple

Nuvo Glimmer Paste - Blue Topaz
The Stencil we are using is from A Colorful Life:
A Colorful Life - Dotty Double Stencil

Glimmering Kindness       

This technique couldn't be easier- yet it has tremendous impact. 
Place the stencil over the cardstock. I recommend using painter's tape or reuseable tape to hold the stencil down. 
Dip into the Glimmer paste bottle with a spatula, and use the flat edge to apply it to the stencil. For best results, use the spatula like a butter knife, applying the paste like buttering toast.

Once the first color is applied, clean the spatula.
Apply the second color of Glimmer Paste to the stencil in the same manner.
Remove the stencil, lifting it straight off the cardstock. Immediately wash the stencil.
The glimmer paste may be dried with a heat tool, or left to air dry. Note that the paste on my card was nearly fully dry by the time I finished washing my stencil. It is very fast drying.

I hope you are a little inkspired by today's issue. See you next week!
