Card Creating | Pretty Little Studio October 15, 2016 07:00

Hi everyone!

I'm so happy to be joining you on the blog and bringing to a close our fabulous team up with Pretty Little Studio! Don't you think our cut files and their gorgeous product go so well together? Both design teams have done such a great job and I've highly enjoyed sharing them with you on Instagram. I'm excited to also be able to share a couple of cards I created using a few cut files and the beautiful Here Comes the Sun collection.

Yay for hot air balloons! I kept this card pretty simple. The clouds paper worked perfectly to create a scene with the hot air balloons. Each balloon is simply backed with some patterned paper. No fancy embellishing or techniques. I wanted it to be easy, simple and reproducible.

The flair and star stickers help ground the design and give it just a little bit extra to help complete the card. 

 

Here is my second card that uses a background cut file and a phrase from one of the card sentiments cut file collections. 

Again, I kept it pretty simple. The sentiment I used black watercolor to not only make the word pop but to also keep with the continuity of the style of this collection. It's all handdrawn and has a watercolor element to it. So soft and pretty! Washy tape helped to add that final touch it seemed to be missing. 

Thanks for swinging by today and I hope you have enjoyed seeing all the beautiful Pretty Little Studio product!

Here is a list of the cut files I used:

Angel/Pretty Little Studio Team Up October 12, 2016 07:00

Hello! It's Lee-Anne here and I am excited that Just Nick is teaming up with the design team at Pretty Little Studio.  Oh how I love Just Nick's cut files and of course the pretty products from Pretty Little Studio.

For my project,  I decided to work with the Here Comes The Sun Collection.  The pinks, blues and yellows spoke to me.  I love the softness of this collection and thought I wanted to have lots of texture to my layout and add soft colors around the photo of this sweet little girl. 

For my layout, I cut the Basketweave Background on a 12 X 12 sheet of white card stock with my Silhouette Cameo and backed it on another 12 X 12 sheet of white card stock. For the flowers, I cut several flowers in various sizes from the Doodle Flowers 2 on white adhesive card stock, kept them on the mat and watercolored the outside petals, let them dry, and then backed them with some patterned papers.

 

Love the soft colors, all the ephemera and of course the flair!
