Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop | Shimmer Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper

Hello there stamping friends! Welcome to the August Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! August already! Boy time flies when you are having fun! This year is flying!

This month we are all about the amazingly beautiful Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. The Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper includes delicately detailed laser-cut sheets with a touch of shimmer. Vanilla on one side, white on the other side. One design is a 12" x 12" (30.5 x 30.5 cm) pattern; the other design has distinct patterns to cut out and use on card fronts.

So gorgeous and so pretty! Don't you just love it!

I'm using the white side of the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper today and combining it with the new 2019 - 2021 In Colour - Seaside Spray, for that classic Blue and White colour combination and I've created a Gift Tag/Gift Card gift box. How crisp is the beautiful white paper against the Seaside Spray?

I've created a lidded box with a 'window' using a Window Sheet for the window opening and then attached the Seaside Spray 1/2" (1.3 Cm) Scalloped Linen Ribbon to the front flaps to be able to tie the box shut.

All the items fit in the box as well as some extra ribbon and linen thread for gift wrapping and then all together this makes a beautiful, hand-made gift.

Once all the gift tags and note cards have been used the empty box can then be reused again to 'regift'  to another recipient or you can use it to store some of your most precious treasures.

The Shimmer Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper has been adhered to the top and the bottom of the box and the sides have been reinforced with extra cardstock to make for a stronger box. Adhering the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper to the cardstock does take a little bit of time but the results are just stunning for a beautiful 'WOW" creation. Using a hole punch, holes were punched in the front flaps for the Seaside Spray 1/2" (1.3 Cm) Scalloped Linen Ribbon to be threaded through. Once the ribbon was threaded through I adhered it in place with Hot Glue so as the ribbon would stay firmly in place.

For the circle gift tags I used two of the smaller patterns from the Laser Cut Sheets. I adhered the smaller square patterns on to cardstock first and then die cut the circle out for the tag. The 'Just for You' sentiment then comes from the Rare Blessings Stamp set. This was stamped onto Basic Black cardstock with Whisper White Craft Ink and then heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.

This tag again uses a small portion of one of the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper for a white on white look with a hint of Seaside Spray ink splattered on the tag and then accented with a Seaside Spray and white sentiment.

For the thank you note card I adhered the larger Shimmer Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper sheet to a sheet of Seaside Spray cardstock and then die cut the square Stitched Shape die to adhere to a 3"x3" note card. The 'Thanks' comes from the Inspiring Iris Stamp set for a gorgeous script sentiment.

You can make any sized box to decorate and put in any sized tags and note cards to make it you own. Why not try to colour the Shimmer Shimmer Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper first before you use it on your project? Or use the favourite colour combination of the gift recipient to make your project extra special. You are only limited by your imagination.

I do hope that I've given you some inspiration on using this amazing paper. Do yourself a favour and get this gorgeous paper today to use on your next project! You'll love it!!
