Vintage Vogue Meets Smooch Spritz

It is always so much fun when we premiere a new catalog. Our new Summer Mini runs from yesterday (May 1, 2010) thru August 31, 2010. If you would like to view the catalog on-line, CLICK HERE to view the pdf file.

Vintage Vogue Stamp Set is still available, use item #117690 - Wood Mount OR item #118598 - Clear Mount. I stamped out the flower and "F" Friends images and then cut them with our paper snips. Did you notice the brads in the center of the flowers? They are perfect to layer the flowers and create a center for them. The brads are:

Jumbo Brads .. 5/16" Neutrals, item #112534 ... $7.95
80 brads (20 each of 4 colors)
Chocolate Chip, Silver, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White

The speckles on the card stock was created by using a brand new product in our Summer Mini called Smooch Spritz. It is a liquid that your spray on, let dry, and then create your card or scrapbook page. It is NOT for use by children and should not come into contact with skin or eyes. Also if you are doing "Cards for Soldiers", this product in my opinion should not be used as the dry sparkle effect "may" come off on hands when handled.

Here are some tips from Stampin' Up! on how to use the Smooch Spritz:

To help you get the best results with Smooch Spritz, please follow these suggestions:

  • Before each use, shake vigorously until the particles are fully mixed. The sprayer can become clogged if particles get sucked up into the tube.
  • Spray in the direction of the arrow on the nozzle top. For best results, spray six to ten inches from your project. For a heavier application of color, spray closer to the project.
  • The Smooch Spritz bottles are made of glass. When you demonstrate this product, place the bottles on a towel or cloth to prevent them from rolling and possibly breaking.
  • If the ink dries outside of the nozzle, remove the nozzle and submerge it in a household cleaner (such as Windex or 409) for 20 minutes. Rinse, replace the nozzle, shake well, and spray.
It is also recommended that you place the item to be sprayed in an upright position (lean it against the back wall of the color catcher) and that you hold the spritz bottle straight up and down when you spray too.

This is a close-up of my card showing some of the shimmery effect of the Smooch Spritz. I used Gold Glow and Silver Foil. Here is the information on the 4 colors available:

Smooch Spritz:
Gold Glow, item #118770 ... $4.95
Silver Foil, item #118771 ... $4.95
Vanilla Shimmer, item #118772 ... $4.95
Log Cabin, item #119921 ... $4.95

Color Catcher: (love this for Shimmer Mist, Smooch Mist, any spraying/misting job)
This useful Color Catcher portects your work area from ink overspray when using our Smooch Spritz or Color Spritzer Tool. Made from corrugated cardboard. It is easy to assemble, compact, and portable. 1 per package. Dimensions once open: 10" x 10" x 10". Item #121093 ... $5.95

Hope you enjoyed today's Monday Inspiration, and that it will inspire you to try something new.

Mary -
Gosh I guess my order was not large enough - I love the effect that this gives the card. Wasn't sure when I saw it in the catalog if it would be so great.
