Thursday Product review

Hello scrappy and crafty friends. Welcome to product review Thursday. My name is Barbara and I am going to tell you about Viva's 3D stamp paint. You can find their products here:
When I bought some of this at my local scrapbook store (LSS), the owner told me that it works better with stencils than it does with stamps. So, I set out to find out for myself how this stuff works.
Tip of the day: Always try new products on scrap paper first so you can see how it works.

This is my finished project. I used the paint to make the borders with a stencil and I used the paint to make mist to spray on the white cardstock where you see it is a little bit blue.

First I wanted to try it with a stamp. I tried a deeply cut red rubber stamp first. 

As you can see the paint is shiny and glittery. I applied the paint to the stamp with a brush. Here is my result.

Parts of it came out really well. But you have to be very careful to apply the paint evenly. It was not too hard to do.
So next I wanted to try it with stencils.
And here are my results.

It is not easy to see how really shiny this paint is. Next I mixed a small amount of paint with a small amount of water in my Mini Mister and misted the white cardstock. I used about a teaspoon of paint and a tablespoon of water. It misted really well. Although it is not easy to see it in the photos.
Again, here is the finished project. 
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you will give this paint a try. It really gives beautiful results.Have a Scrapbook Blessing kind of day.

Hope you have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by,


  1. oh wow, this would be fantastic for making our own backgrounds. Thanks so much for the tutorial and review. Love it.

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
