Floral and Butterfly Card Set | Rachel Lowe May 30, 2019 10:00

Hi friends, today I have a card set to share! 

I have used two cut files to create these cards.

I have used Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills 2 collection. My cards are 5x5 inches. I firstly cut a circle and heart into the front of my card. I then cut a 5x5 inch white cardstock strip and added to the back of the front cover, using foam tape to give me some dept to work with which allowed me to fill in the circle and heart with my chosen cut files.

I used a floral paper to cut my flowers and when layering I added foam tape between the layers to add height which meant my flowers were coming up and over the circle. I used three sizes to create my flowers from visual interest. Some centres I added enamel dots and others I used NUVO Jewel drops (white). I finished my card off adding a word sentiment (which is a puffy sticker from the collection) and heart.

 My next card I used the floral paper that I made the flowers from and cut a heart and adhered to the white cardstock strip previously cut. I then used an ombre paper so my butterfly would have light and shade for visual interest.

I cut two of the same size, three different sized butterflies and added a row of machine stitching to the centre which allowed me to bend up the wings for dimension.

I finished this card off with a die cut word sentiment from the collection added with foam tape for height. And there you have it some beautiful cards ready for gifting. I can see myself using this flower and butterfly again and again.

Thanks for stopping by today, hoping you have a wonderful creative week!


ALWAYS REMEMBER TODAY | Nathalie DeSousa May 17, 2019 07:00

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today with a new layout fit for our "word" challenge.  I love large titles, so this theme fits right up my alley, and with so many cut files available in the JustNick Studio store, this was just a dream to put together.

 


To start this page, i pulled together the Word 3, Love List and Word 2 cut files to create the title of the page, "ALWAYS REMEMBER THIS".   I simply pick a word of each file and weld them together so that they naturally create a space for the picture.

 

 

 

 

 

Once the words were welded, they were cut twice from white cardstock and once from a paper from the Pinkfresh Studio's Everyday Musings collection.   The white cut outs were glued together, and then the patterned paper cut out was attached to the white ones with a small offset so that it creates the illusion of dimension.

 

 

To add color to the background a bit of liquid watercolor (Pinkfresh Studio) was added so that it covered all the area where the word and picture would sit.  While the background dried, i pulled the new Butterfly cut file to cut a few outlines  and the shapes from white cardstock and patterned paper.

 

 

 

 

To assemble the page, first the title  was glued to the background, and then using a black fineliner  the outline was traced - this emphasizes the title-.  The butterflies were glued together, and then they were clustered on the layout based on the respective color in the background.

 

 

A few stickers and embellishments from the Everyday Musings collection were added around the layout.  A few lines of journal and gold ink splatters completes this page.

I hope this inspires you to check all the word files and other designs in the JustNick shop, the choices are infinite when it comes to mixing and matching designs to create a one-of-a-kind cut out for your project.  

XO

 

 


Good Life | Rachel Lowe May 2, 2019 07:00

Hi all Rachel here and today I have a layout that is all about colour! I love butterflies and use them in one way or another time and time again. I have used the Butterly Background 2 cut file.

I have used the new Simple Stories collection Vintage Botanicals.

Have you ever looked at a 'busy' or multi coloured paper and thought how do I use that? I used a very busy paper (SS Scatter Kindness 10476) to cut the Butterfly Background 2, as some of the butterflies are not solid and there are varied size butterflies it allows you to use such a paper, and look at the beautiful effect! I added some machine stitching down the centre of some of the butterflies. I chose a white background to provide a stark contrast.

I added my photo (back and white to add more contrast against the butterfly background) by matting it on a bright green paper mat and using foam tape so it 'popped' off my layout. Framing it was a must so your eye was also drawn to my photo and not just the gorgeous colourful butterflies.

I added flower die cuts to each side of my photo, tucking them under the photo mat. I added some more machine stitching to the leaves of the flower die cuts to add definition. I added some pretty little die cut birds with foam tape to create a 3D effect and more importantly so they did not get lost against the butterfly background. I added a small sticker as my title, Good Life, again as my background was so busy and colourful it was about keeping it simple and clean.

Don't be afraid to use busy or colourful papers, they can add a real wow factor to larger cut files, this was out of my comfort zone as I tend to use softer colours and small patterns but I love it.

Thank you for stopping by today and I will see you again later in the month. Happy creating!
