Cozy Fall | TN with Patricia October 22, 2019 07:00

Hello Everyone!  My post today uses the same cut files I used for my project earlier this month.  You can find that post here.  I had created several Fall Apple Cider Treats  to give out to friends.  For those cards, I used the Fall Foliage Background with pink and grey paint to stencil onto woodgrain cards.  I rarely like to throw out anything, and loved all that wonderful paint on my Fall Foliage cut file.

 I backed some of the leaves with black or a sage green cardstock.  I wanted to also copy the same colors I used for my Fall Treats.  Instead of using the entire cut file in my Traveler's Notebook, I trimmed it and adhered it to the right.

I printed my photos small, and then foam adhered one of the photos over the other to create a pretty layered look over the leaves.  Then added die cuts and a wood veneer to finish that side.  I also used the black clothespin and twine from my original treats.

For the left side, I used that same 'fall' image from the I Like Fall cut file.

But then backed it with the painted, stenciled woodgrain card.  Love the look of the paint on the woodgrain peeking through.

I used a 3x4 trimmed down card to add my journaling and then finished this side with date stamping and an acrylic word that tied in with my cut file and also had a similar script font.

A few things I loved about using the same cut files I had used from the treats are: 

  • it gave me my color scheme, which I would not have thought of for Fall.
  • I had a unique look to the Fall Foliage background from using it with paint.
  • no creative block or overthinking since I already had the inspiration from the original project.

Hope this reminds you to not throw out the leftover cut files, but instead use that color or inspiration to create another project with them!  Happy creating!

Hello JustNick Friends!!  We aren't quite enjoying Fall weather, but this time of the year, I love to create, and especially like to give something I made to friends and family.  For today, I have Fall Apple Cider treats that I created for scrapbook friends for a recent crop.  I used a pre-made 3x4 wood grain card as my base.  Then I used the new Fall Foliage Background with grey and pink paint as a stencil to create my background onto the card.  These colors are inspired by the tea bag.

Once all of my cards were dry, I attached the tea bag and the Fall die cut in a contrasting color that is also picking up the green from the tea bag.

Even though I used paint, these came together quickly.  I created 24 of them!  Perfect little gifts to make someone's day, but with giving these to crafters, they are able to re-use the cut file and the painted card.

I have a few leftovers and I still have the Fall Foliage Background, so I plan on using these to create another project I will share here on the JustNick blog later this month!  Happy creating!

 


AUTUMN LOVE | Nathalie DeSousa September 18, 2019 07:00

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today with a new layout all about those warm cozy feelings Autumn brings along.   I  usually look forward to Nicole's emails with the new upcoming cut files, so when i saw the new Fall Foliage Background (coming soon to the shop) i just had to use it on a page.

 

 

I love Fall colors, so i wanted to highlight them on the page, as the background for the beautiful cut file.

 

 

To bring out the details of the cut, i chose to create my own background using VIcki Boutin's Pop Acrylic paints.  I simply masked the cardstock and used a flat brush to create the ombre square on the page.

 

 

 

While the background dried i cut two Fall Foliage  backgrounds ( to fit the colored square) from white cardstock, glued them together, and then glued them to the background.  I made sure some of the leaves were not glued fully together, so that they create interest on the background.

 

 

 

The picture of my babies was converted to black and white and added at the bottom corner of the square.   I used one Leafy Floral cut out to decorate the bottom of the picture along with a few phrase stickers.  Then for the title, i used a combination of alphas and the word "Love" - this was created using the Love 1 cut file from kraft paper-.

 

I love how this turned out, the boldness of the background creates the perfect canvas for the cut file and makes everything on the page pop.   Remember to check these JustNIck cut files and all the new files that are revealed each week.

 

Thank you so much for stopping by,
