Glimmer Mist and Scenic Route!

= A super.fun.combination! The June card kit from Create My Keepsake went up for sale last night to members and will be available to non-members tomorrow! I'll be back with a link for you tomorrow to purchase this kit! Meanwhile, I will tease you just a bit with what you will be getting from the kit...(hee hee) These are the backsides of some of the papers....awesome patterns and colors from Scenic Route's Garden Grove line! There are also 2 clear acrylic cards in this kit by Sheetload of Cards! Here are the 5 cards that you get directions to make in the kit....
Happy Day acrylic card
I cut a hole in the acrylic card for the star to hang. It's kind of hard to see in the photos...
On the "My Pal" card, I used the Glimmer Mist from the kit to create this background and misted over one of the felt stars. I didn't stick the star down first, just laid it on my cardstock, so some of the mist went under the star. If you want a more perfect star, you could stick the star down first. I kind of liked the messy look, so I kept it. I cut some of the felt stars to add over the top after it was dry.
Totally Awesome Dad card (yes, the pattern for the star is in the kit too!)
On this "flag" card, I used the circle cardstock for a mask and misted over it. Then cut small strips of the circle cardstock to attach back over the card to create "stripes" for the flag. Inside says, "to be free! Happy 4th of July!"
Then, after I was done misting over the circles on the last card, I attached it to this card! (I sprayed the Glimmer Mist on the back of the red circles.)
I am going to have to get more colors of the mist, I had a blast using it and would love to try more things with it! Right now I only have 2 colors of mist. Definitely addicting. I'll be back with the link to purchase and some Label Tulip projects. =)

You certainly know how to sell a kit...your projects are AWESOME! And I became hooked on Glimmer Mist after my first use. I had always been intimidated by it...decided it probably couldn't hurt me...get it a try...and BAM! Instant love! LOL!

Hope you are having a Happy Monday!!!
