I “Heart” Shimmerz

Hello and happy Monday! We are in our first full week of summer here in Texas and trying to stay cool has become our new past time!

I’m over on the Shimmerz Paints Blog today with a card using the new June Missy Whidden Color Kitz.  Have you seen this beautiful kit? I love the colors, but for today’s card I had fun playing with the cut file designed by Paige Evans.

Here’s the card I created just the cut file in the kit and some Vibez sprays.

I began by re-sizing the heart to fit an A2 card. I used some light watercolor paper and cut the heart out using my Silhouette.  Once the heart was cut, I removed the heart frame from the cutting mat and left the insides on the mat. I used some spray adhesive and adhered the frame to black cardstock. The next step was a little risky since I sprayed the Vibez directly on the paper pieces on the mat. (I think my mat is ok and I was able to wipe off most of the spray.) I used Vibez in Jeni B Bleu, Sweet Heart, and Hermit the Frog. Once it was dry, I used tweezers and liquid glue to place the pieces on the correct spot.

 The process was pretty simple and I love the way the black increases the Vibez shimmer.

I used black cardstock and white embossing for this simple sentiment from Reverse Confetti and attached it with foam tape. I finished the card off with some clear sequins.

That’s my card for the day! I love the shine and the cut file was so fun to play with. Don’t forget if you place an order with Shimmerz Paints to mention my name, Ericka Strange, in the comment section of the order for a fun freebie!
