posting from the depths of christmas prep hell! anyone else??? marathon baking yesterday. i have decided i despise cake pops...alot...and stores that run out of things before christmas...like white candy melts. thus snowmen cake pops with sprinkles....at least pezza loved them!
we headed in to DC this past weekend for hubby's work christmas gathering. we sat with my two fave couples and i had lots of fun. i love DC and don't get out there like i used to since pezza was born. can't wait until i can take her to the smithsonian museums and stuff. used to love doing that with the boys.
but onto my project - today's fun includes a video for ya! i LOVE LOVE LOVE perfect pearls mica powders by ranger - they are the BEST for so many things! and a great one is making your OWN shimmering pearlescent mists in ANY COLORS YOU WANT and the video at the end of the post shows you all about it. it is sponsored by FaveCrafts.com - a super place to browse for all sorts of free tips, project instructions and info. You can mix up your pearl mists two ways - one is just perfect pearls and water in a mini mister - all shimmer in whatever color PP you use but no heavy color. i really love to spray this mixture onto regular patterned paper so i get shimmer paper! that is what i did on the dark green strip on these cards - i sprayed the full page and then cut it to use on all of the cards:
