Pink Pirouette Glimmer Paper?  If you have Stampin’ Up! Silver Glimmer Paper and Classic Ink on hand, you can create your own custom colored glimmer paper.  Today’s 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial shows you how to perform the “magic!”


  • Stampin up demonstrator blog video tutorial silver glimmer paperI experimented with different methods to apply the ink to the Silver Glimmer Paper and preferred using a dauber and a drop or two of reinker.  Different colors may have different results.  Please let me know with a comment below if you have tried this method and your experience with other colors.
  • IMPORTANT!  The ink doesn’t dry very quickly with this technique (seriously, it was still wet after a couple hours).  Use a Heat Tool to set the color pronto.
  • I used my Stampin’ Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool to add a little embossing to the horizontal panel (on the Soft Suede portion).
  • My trusy Simply Scored Tool also helped me whip up the custom envelope for this 5″ x 3 1/2″ card (Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper).  I cut a 8″ x 6 1/4″ rectangle and scored the long direction 1/2″  in from each side (or 1/2″ and 5 3/4″).  Next, I flipped it 90 degrees and scored at 1 3/4″ and 5 1/2″.  Watch My Easiest Envelope Ever Video Tutorial for the simple finishing details.

  1. I have used this technique many times. I love being able to match colors. Have you tried this with the new reinkers for the new pads? Mine didn’t work as well. Any suggestions?

  2. Great, can you use the same technique to die our clear buttons?
