Top Tip Tuesday – Any Colour Glimmer Paper. Welcome to another of my Top Tip Tuesday posts. Today I am looking at coloured Glimmer Paper. Stampin’ Up! has a great selection of basic colours in the Annual Catalogue, but sometimes we want to go a little ‘Off Piste’ and have a colour that is not a standard stock item. What then?
Having seen sales of short stocked coloured Glimmer Paper, I can see that there is quite a call for it, so I have a solution for you. If fact my ‘solution’ is an actual ‘solution’. This will mean that you can have Glimmer Paper in ANY colour you want. You need to start with our wonderful white Sparkle Glimmer Paper. Cut the amount you want from the full sheet and then protect yourself and your work surface.
You will need a solution of about 2/3 of a Stampin’ Spritzer full of 70% Rubbing Alcohol (available from Amazon in the UK) and between 6 and 8 drops of reinker. Now shake the solution to mix to two parts well. Once you are confident they are mixed, simply spritz your Glimmer Paper until the colour is the right ‘depth’ of colour for your project.
Other than this being a little messy, it is very simple and the Glimmer Paper will be ready to use in about 2 hours. You can speed the process up a little with your Heat tool, but I would recommend that you leave the Glimmer Paper to dry naturally for the last 1/2 hour or so. This will reduce the likelihood of the paper curling.
So, now you can get Glimmer Paper in any colour you want, or add drops from different reinkers to see what new colours you can find. Just remember that colours on opposite sides of the colour wheel will make brown if mixed together. I should add that this is a great way to use up your older reinkers.
