Do you notice the Hearts on Sara's Fantabulous layout? Don't the hearts look like pattern paper or stamps? Nope, they're all made from a template cut on her Cricut and then sprayed with colored mist! What a Fantabulous idea!
Here's how Sara made it:
First I found the image I wanted to use. This layout I choose a cluster of hearts. Then put a piece of scrap paper on your Cricut mat - you will be getting this paper a messy and it will have no actual use on your layout.
Here is the paper with the heart shapes cut out of it and I have placed it on top of my back ground sheet for my layout. I gathered 3 different colored mists that work with my layout.
Before you start misting you must get other scrap paper to cover up the rest of your back ground paper. Mist has a tendency to spray all over so you will want to be sure cover up the rest of your paper so you do not get mist where you don't want it.
Then spray your masked area until you are happy with the saturation.
Once you are happy with the way it looks remove the mask and the other papers and your misted image will be revealed.

I just had to give Sara's tutorial a try since I do own one bottle of Glimmer Mist in Peppermint Stick from Tattered Angels. I think I've used it like once, now twice......
Since my mist was red and Sara already made hearts, I decided to cut the word love from Opposites Attract a 2.74 inches.
Hint: If you choose to mist a word, you have to remember that you'll be misting the negative cut so you'll need to keep the inside pieces of your letters.
I love the look of Kraft paper, white and red so went that that look by adding Martha Stewart gingham paper tape, red twine and a heart banner. Looks like I already have a card made for Valentine's next year.
Hope this FCCB tutorial is inspires you to find ways to use your glimmer mist.
