Glittered Easter Eggs

Easter is just 2 and half weeks away!  Here's an easy way to add glittered Easter eggs to your scrapbook pages or cards using Silver Glimmer Paper and the XL Oval Punch:

Stamp Sets:
  • Delightful Dozen
  • Positively Chevron
  • Crumb Cake
  • Very Vanilla
  • Strawberry Slush
  • Elegant Eggplant
  • Bermuda Bay
  • Wild Wasabi
  • Gumball Green
  • Garden Green
  • Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Stampin' Pad
Tools / Extras:
  • Stampin' Spritzers (link)
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Re-Inkers
  • Silver Glimmer Paper (link)
  • Fringe Scissors (link)
  • Brayer
  • Seam Binding ribbon
  • XL Oval Punch
Egg Spritzing:  I have an old box with a lid attached on one side that I use to spritz in (practice safe  Just fill your spritzers with rubbing alcohol (drys faster than water) and 15 drops of re-inker in each color in each spritzer to spritz strips of Silver Glimmer Paper.  I tried with less drops, but it was not intense enough color on the Silver Glimmer Paper.  Stampin' Up! Glimmer Paper has a special backing that holds up to spritzing.  The color works itself under the glitter and dries in about 15 minutes.  Then, just punch out your eggs with the Extra Large Oval Punch. 

Tip: Once you designate a color to your spritzer, just label it and keep it that color.  They are inexpensive and so washing the color out of the spritzing mechanism isn't worth your time.

I also did an Ombre effect on the background of this card with the Brayer.  Here's my Technique Journal page.

Happy Stampin'
