How to Color Glimmer Paper

Glimmer paper is awesome! It can add a really special bit of sparkle to your projects. Check out this project with a sparkly red rose.

I started with Very Vanilla card stock. The black layer started as a rectangle 1/4" smaller, 4" x 5-1/4" that I cut on a diagonal.

And that gorgeous sentiment is from the Rose Wonder Stamp set. The sentiments in that set are such a beautiful font, I love the style lettering!

What do you think of that sparkly red rose?

Stampin'UP! sells glimmer paper in 4 basic colors:   Red - Silver - Gold - and - White.
And this spring, the new Occasions catalog also offers us a pink (Blushing Bride) Glimmer paper.

HELPFUL HINT:  You'll have more success die cutting glimmer paper if you cut from the back side. The glitter on the front is challenging for the waver thin dies to cut through.  Of course if its a word you need to cut from the front.

Did you know you can color the white (Dazzling Diamonds) Glimmer paper? 

I  created the green glimmer paper for this card  myself.  You can use a variety of tools on glimmer paper. I used Aquapainters on this card, but on past projects I've colored glimmer paper successfully with all of the following:
In fact you can even heat emboss glimmer paper - but be careful because the paper has a plastic backing.

Isn't it fun that you can make Glimmer Paper now in any color you want. 
One more way to ensure your projects are color coordinated.
