More Summer Fun | Ericka Strange

Hello Shimmerz Fanz and Happy Summer! I hope you are all enjoying the your summer and hopefully a more relaxing pace. Ericka here with a couple of cards I made using the free Summer Fun cut file shared on the Facebook page Shimmerz Paints Sharez. Hopefully you are already part of the group, if not click on the name above and join up for some fun giveaways, contest and challenges this Summer!

This cut file was so fun to play with and there are so many great ways to use it. For my first card I used the whole cute file and made a square card measuring 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". I wanted to use all of these fun designs and cut them on my Silhouette. Once they were cut, I used a variety of Shimmerz to paint the images. Check out the products below for a list of colors.

After my page dried, I removed the cut portions and used spray adhesive to adhere it to a white card base.

I was tempted to leave the card just like this since I didn't want to cover up any of these fun images. In the end I used an older cut file and added the sentiment using black vinyl and vellum.

For my second card, I used only half of the cute file and made a regular A2 card.

I traced out where I wanted to place the cute file on watercolor paper and then filled in the blocks with Shimmerz Bumble Bee, Pip Pip Cherry O, Peacock's Plum and Orange Sherbet.

I used the same sentiment for the card with black vinyl and vellum.

For my third card I used Spritz in Caribbean Sunset and Sapphire on watercolor card stock.

I sprayed the Caribbean Sunset and let the layer dried and then used the Sapphire. This cut file has so many great options.

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to check out my blog Strangely Creative for more details. I hope you get a chance to snag this awesome file and make some fun summer projects.
