Shimmerz Paints April Kit

Happy Spring!  I hope your weather is cooperating and you can feel spring in the air! I’m over at the Shimmerz Paint Blog with two cards I made using the beautiful April Missy Whidden Kit.

Here is my first card.

I love these colors and this cut file was so fun to use in a card!  Take a look at all the fun things this kit has to offer.

I love the butterfly cut file and all the ways you can use it. To start off, I took some thin watercolor paper (that I might have borrowed from my daughter’s stash) and played with the different products until I got a look I liked.

I used my Silhouette and sized the cut file so that it would fit nicely on a A2 card panel. I love these butterflies and how they are all connected to form a fun panel.

I then created a background panel with watercolor paper by taking some scrap plastic and the Jeni B Bleu, 1 Hot Mamma Creameez and Shimmerz Bumbly Bee and smooshing the color on to the paper.

I glued the cut file onto the panel once it was dry and added this butterfly from Reverse Confetti in a similar color of RC ink called Piggy Bank. To finish card I added the panel to blue cardstock and added some clear sequins.

After I finished my card, I had all these beautiful butterflies that I just couldn’t throw away. So of course, I had to make another card using the left overs!

I made the panel using watercolor paper and painted on the beautiful colors included in the kit. Then I started to layout all the butterflies I had saved from my card above.

I then alternated using glue and 3D Zots  to give the butterflies a little dimension. I used the same stamp set from Reverse Confetti this time in a Rose. I have a couple more cards that I’m working on using this fun cut file and the Dotz included. Stay tune for more lol. Here is another look at the two cards I made.
