Here are the February Stamp Club projects!
This first one is hard to see, but the front of the card has the shimmer paint mist all over it. So in real life, there is a blingy goldy sparkly finish to it. I made the shimmer mist spray by going to Walgreens and purchasing a tube of hand sanitizer, then adding about 1/2t. of shimmer spray to it. Just shake it up and VOILA! Instant shimmer mist! I used “Champagne” shimmer paint on this project. I know the frost white works well, too. And I also know that Platinum DOES NOT work!
Stamp Set: Vintage Vogue, Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel
Paper: Kraft, Barely Banana, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Sahara Sand, Bashful Blue, Barely Banana
Accessories: Dimensionals, Scallop Trim Border, Platinum Shimmer Paint, Kraft Taffeta Ribbon
You can make your own shimmer mist by going to the drugstore and purchasing some hand sanitizer ($1.49). Just add about 1 t. of shimmer mist paint, shake it up, and spray your project! When the hand sanitizer is gone, substitute rubbing alcohol for the same effect. NOTE: the Platinum Shimmer Paint doesn’t work well with this technique!

The last project was using the Big Shot! We made these flower accessories. These can be worn as pins for your jacket or sweater, or can be used to embellish just about anything! The gals had a choice of 3 different styles to make. The one on the bag uses burlap as the middle fabric.
There is an awesome YouTube video on how to make these, which can be found HERE. However, I do a few things differently. I just cut small squares to fit the flower I am using, rather than putting one piece on the whole die cut.
Accessories: Fabric, Flower Folds Die Cut, Corduroy Buttons, Hot Glue
