  • Pigment Ink

  • Clear Embossing Powder

  • Heat Gun

  • Sponge Dauber

  • Stamps

  • Cardstock


  1. Step 1

    Stamp an image on cardstock with pigment ink.

    Add clear embossing powder over your stamped images.

    Tap off excess powder.

  3. Melt your embossing powder with heat gun.

  4. Step 3

    Shake the bottle of Shimmery Paint .

  5. Open bottle. Ink up your sponge dauber by dabbing it into the lid of your bottle.

    If you are planning on using a lot of Shimmery Paint, pour out a small amount on a scrap piece of plastic (e.g. plastic envelope, yogurt lid, etc..)

  6. Step 4

    Rub Shimmery Paint all over your cardstock.

    You can also use a foam brush for this step.

  7. Step 5

    Buff your cardstock with paper towel to remove paint from the embossed image.

  8. Keep buffing to blend your dauber lines.

  9. Step 6

    Add paint directly to a stamp with your sponge dauber.

  10. Stamp onto your cardstock to create a subtle background.

  11. Step 7

    Use your paper towel to wipe off paint that got on your embossed image.

  12. Step 8

    Finish your card.
