Shimmerz Birthday Blog Hop


Welcome to the Shimmerz Birthday Blog Hop!!! I'm so excited that you are joining me today...whether you came directly here, or happened upon me from Melissa Bove's blog! So if you came directly here, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop over at the Shimmerz Blog. Read the instructions carefully, and you could win THIS!!

Got your attention yet?? You might be wondering about the picture at the top of this post (or not!) Either way, I'm gonna tell ya what it's all about! I wanted a prop for my birthday project and just happened to have a couple of white roses laying around. Well, my project has a lot of pink, so what'd I do? Oh, I'm sure you know what I did! I sprayed them with my Bed of Roses Shimmerz Spritz! One is without the spritz (blaaaaaah) and the other is with. NICE, huh?!

Ok, so on to my project! What is a birthday without cake? Certainly not a celebration in my book. My preference is red velvet...but I digress. Anywho, are you thinking I baked a cake and sprayed it with Shimmerz?? Well, close, but not quite! Have you seen the Sizzix Bigz die that pops a cake when you open the card? Yes, that one!

This is the close-up of the cake and you can bet I sprayed that whole thing up with Shimmerz Spritz! The small chocolate flowers were sprayed with Mudpie Spritz. All the cardstock used was sprayed with Baby's Breath Spritz. I even sprayed the "ribbon" treatment with it.

Click on the above picture, and you can see just how pretty the shimmerz looks on the pale pink flower atop the cake. Soooo nice!

And here's the full card opened.


The Birthday greeting is from the Seeds of Love set from H&M Stamps. I hope you enjoyed the projects, and be sure to hop on over to Michelle's blog for more fantastic projects!

PS. My super-duper top secret word is THE.

Thanks for stopping in and getting..."in stamping mode." :)
