Color Spritzer Tool

The Color Spritzer Tool has returned. For awhile Stampin Up stopped selling this tool. It returned in the 2006 - 2007 catalog. (Click on the title of this post for ideas on how to use this tool).

How is it used?

Simple. Insert a marker through the tunnel (left side of the picture). The marker's tip sits right above the spritzer opening. When the bulb is squeezed, it blows air out of the opening and causes the marker to spritz ink in a mist pattern.

A great way to use this color spritzer is to spray a mist of water on to your cardstock, spritz a splash of color using the color spritzer and re-spray water on the the colored area. This disburses the ink creating beautiful watercolored background.

Here is a sample of a card I made using this tool:

Materials used:

Rubber stamp set: Happily Ever After

Ink Colors and cardstock: Orchid Opulance and Lavender Lace


Background colored using the Color Spritzer Tool and water as described earlier, matted on to lavender lace cardstock then attached to card base.

Heart image randomly rubberstamped on to background after spritzed cardstock dried.

Bride image rubber stamped on glossy cardstock, colored with markers (lavender lace and green). Glue applied to the outline of the gown using a zig glue pen, then glitter applied.

Right corner punched using ticket corner punch.

Image matted on to lavender lace cardstock. Eyelet attached to the right lower corner and a small tag with saying is attached through the eyelet using a silver glitter cord. Swirl clip attached to left top corner and a ribbon tied to the clip.

Image mounted on to background using foam tape to give it a 3D appearance.

Wedding cards should be simple but elegant.
