You Are My Sunshine

Happy Weekend! I hope your weekend is going well and your weather is nice and summery! I’m over on the Shimmerz Paints Blog with a fun card I made using the The Missy Whidden Shimmerz Paints Color Kitz. I love creating with these kits, the colors are always awesome and there is always so many ways to use the wonderful cut files.

For today’s card, I decided to make a circle card to highlight this fun summery cut file.


The Missy Kitz contains the following:

  • NEW Coloringz In Deep
  • Coloringz Lil’ Yellow Skool Bus
  • Shimmerz Marigold
  • Inklingz Corney  Flower Blue

It also contains three exclusive Summer Dotz and a beautiful sun & cloud cut file designed by Paige Evans!  The prices is $18.95. Check it out:!/The-Missy-Whidden-Color-Kitz-The-July-Edition/p/142253122/category=33206055


I started by sizing the cut file down so that I could make it into a card and used light weight watercolor paper in my Silhouette Cameo. Once the image was done cutting, I took the Coloringz sprays and used them on the top and bottom of the image. I decided to leave the inner portions of the clouds intact and used the Inklingz to color them to add some more shine.


Once that layer was dry, I took a paint brush and added another layer of the In Deep Coloringz to make the swirls a bit darker and added some splatters too.


I used the Shimmerz Marigold on the inner part of the sunshine to give it a slightly darker color and shine. I also added a little foam tape to prop it up against the rest of the cut file.


I then used my Silhouette to trace the cut file and made an attached circle slightly larger than the cut file to use for my card base. I love the dark blue card stock against these beautiful colors.


I cut the sentiment on matte black vinyl and placed it on vellum to help it stand out on the card. To finish my card, I added a couple of gems in my stash for a little more sparkle.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get a chance to create something beautiful with these awesome July Kitz!
