JustNick Cut File Store

Hello everyone.  I'm happy to be a part of the JustNick + Simple Stories team up this week.  

I created a layout of die cuts really.  It's a combo of different leaves I cut with my cameo and flowers that I fussy cut. Although I spent a bit of time cutting those flowers, it came together fast and easy.

The cut files I used are Leaves and Leaves 2. I love the variety these files offer and the leaves are just plain fun.

Since the flowers were so colorful, I decided to cut the leaves out of white cardstock and leave them plain. I did this so that the leaves and flowers would compliment each other instead of compete against each other.

I hope you are enjoying this week's team up.  Make sure to visit the Simple Stories blog for even more inspiration.


Love You Bunches and Hello Cards August 15, 2016 07:00

Hello there!

I'm so happy to be sharing a couple of cards with you all today! Most cut files seem to be scaled for layouts... and I say, "Not so!" Shrink those cut files! And as Tim Gunn from Project Runway always says, "Make it work!" 

First, I have this lovely to share...

I used two cut files for this card. First, I sliced and shrunk the Quilted Circle background and used it as a layer for the base. I saw the flowers in the Floral and Fauna cut file collection and knew I wanted to use a couple to layer.

I think it worked perfectly! Also, sequins are not my go to but, how easy and fun they were to cluster at the center of that flower!

Here is the next card...

Before I forget, I'm using the Happy Place collection from Fancy Pants Designs. So fun!

Okay, for this next card I utilized another background cut file. I went white on white and layered a piece of patterned paper between. I like how the paper peeks just a little bit behind the cut file. It creates a fun movement for this card and doesn't take away from the overall design.

And that's a wrap!

Thanks for swinging by today! Now, go shrink those cut files and make some cards!

Cut files used: Quilted Circle Background, Floral and Fauna 1 and Ride the Wave Background
