Shimmer Paint Sparkle Spray

Want to use our Shimmer Paint as a spray? Here’s how:

  • Use a 4 oz spray bottle [Amazon – this link is for 24 bottles but I think you can order less – I have been selling them to my stampers for $1 each].
  • Empty the whole bottle of Champagne Shimmer Paint into the spray bottle. Put some alcohol into the shimmer paint bottle – shake and empty into the spray bottle. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat until every bit of the shimmer paint is out of that little bottle! I also dumped the ball bearing into the spray bottle also.
  • Fill the rest of the bottle with alcohol – 70% or 90% – either works!
  • Shake, shake, shake & spray! Do place whatever you are spraying into a protective box or someplace where any overspray won’t ruin anything around it.

You can order the shimmer paint from my online store:

Enjoy that sparkle!!

Getting those framelits/thinlits off that sticky paper!

Have you tried to get your new Stampin’ Up! framelits or thinlits off that very sticky paper without bending them?  My friend Susie Guenther gave me the following tip and it works slicker than you know what!

Lay the white card with the framelits attached face down on your work surface.  Lift up the corner of the white card back to the first framelit.  Place your bonefolder on the framelit and hold the framelit tightly against the work surface while you pull the white sticky card away from the framelit.

Framelit Release -1

Step 1

As you pull the white card away from the framelit, keep moving your bonefolder on the framelit.  Once a framelit is released, move on to the next framelit until they are all set free.

Step 2

Once they are all set free, I throw that card with the sticky tape on it in the trash.  I found that if I stuck the framelits back on the card, you run into the same problem trying to get them free again.

I purchased magnetic sheets (25 sheets 5″ x 7″ Magnetic (20 mil) Adhesive Magnet) from Amazon and that’s what I transfer my framelits to after they have been set free.

Side Note:  If you have a scanner, scan the sheet of framelits before you release them.  Then, whether you just simply place them back in the envelope they came in or transfer them to a magnetic sheet, you have an image of the shapes that came with the set – always a great idea in case you lose one – then you know what is missing.
