Basic Grey and Glimmer Mist

Do you ever get caught in a designing "rut" and tend to use the same supplies over and over?  I recently ordered some Glimmer Mist and had only used it once, so I decided to take some out and get a feel for how it can be used.  This is what I came up with–it was a lot of fun, and I just kind of went with the flow and played to my heart’s content…I created this card for my daughter, Melissa, who is having a tough go of it lately.

For this card I used the Patina color of Glimmer Mist, Basic Grey patterned paper, Blue Bayou and Wild Wasabi card stock by Stampin’ Up!®, crepe paper, some Dew Drops, fiber, and the only stamp I used was a sentiment.  I ran the striped paper through my Cuttlebug, and used a sponge dauber to ink all the edges with Chocolate Chip Classic ink, also from Stampin’ Up!®.  Chocolate Chip is my new favorite neutral color.  I used a deco scissors on the opening of the card.


I sprayed the crepe paper with Glimmer Mist, and then dried it using my Stampin’ Up! heat gun.

I liked using the Glimmer Mist, although when I first sprayed it, it comes out in a fuller stream until I spritzed a couple more times, and then the mist does get more fine.  I’ll have to remember that the next time I get "them" out to play.



  1. Luv this card & that flower is beautiful!!!
    That sentiment is not from Make a Wish, I have that set & it’s not in there. I luv that sentiment, can you tell us where it came from, thanks. Sorry, just thought you might want to know.

  2. Hi Rita! Ooops! My bad! I changed the stamp from Make a Wish to Thoroughly Thankful. Wonder where my brain was at that moment? “Wishing” I had my new Gina K stamps sets perhaps? LOL
    Thanks for letting me know my goof!
