Shimmer Powder and Stencil Birthday Cards - Simon Says Stamp

Good morning! Dropping by today with a couple cards I created pairing up one of my favorite products right now - shimmer powders - and a stencil and stamp set from Simon Says Stamp! I also have a quick 1 minute video sharing my technique if you want to check it out!

Here is the video sharing how I created these backgrounds with a stencil from Simon Says Stamp and several colors of shimmer powders:

I love these bright juicy colors together too! This first card is the first creation, sprinkling powder over the stencil, misting with water, then removing the stencil.

This second one is a bonus created by pressing a piece of watercolor paper onto the stencil afterwards to pick up the extra color. This gives a much softer effect, but kind of a fun two-for-one!

So hard to capture the shimmer and shine these have in a photo - but in real life, they are so fun and pretty!

I added sentiments to each of these using Big Birthday Greetings stamp set - the bold one I heat embossed the sentiment on a panel of black cardstock in white, the second one I stamped the sentiment directly on the background.
