Trio of Cards | Jaclyn Rench June 27, 2017 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!  It's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today.  I'm sharing a trio of cards I've made featuring some of my favorite new designs in the cut shop!

The first card features the Bring on Summer cut file, most specifically that yummy little ice cream cone that's included.  A single dip simply wouldn't allow for much color for the focal point of my card, so I duplicated the 'ice cream scoop' portion of the design to create a whopping four dip cone - cutting each dip from a different color of paper! 

I used a few sweet embellishments to really make my ice cream cone special.  To finish off the card, I paired the cute cone with a thank you sentiment, but this design would also work well with a sweet birthday greeting. 

My next card uses three of the cactus designs from the Cactus Jack file. These quirky cacti look so cute when sized down to fit a card front and cut from subtle patterned papers.  I offset the solid portion of my cut design to enhance the funky feel of these little guys and dressed them up with a few diecut flowers.  I didn't have a stamped sentiment that I liked for this card, so I simply printed my own on a tiny little jewelry tag - I love the playful feel it adds!

My final card uses the beautiful Boho Floral file.  These pretty flowers are a gorgeous compliment to a encouragement and/or sympathy greeting.  I used three different shades of pink patterned papers to back the flower portion of the design, and a pretty minty green for the leaves.  I sized and cut a label from Labels One to house my stamped sentiment and adhered it with foam adhesive to make stand out against the florals.

 I had so much fun making this cute trio. Thanks for joining me and Happy Crafting!

JustNick + Jillibean Soup = fun! August 25, 2016 07:00 4 Comments

Hey everyone! Nicole here today to share a fun about me project for our team up with my friends at Jillibean Soup

 

I am lucky enough to be on the Jillibean Soup team, and they are a great group of people. I love their products and truly create some of my most favorite projects with their products. I decided to do an about me page with a few cut files from the store.

I used the two new Jillibean Soup collections, Hardy Hodgepodge and Chit Chat Chowder on this page. I started by diecutting the title from various papers in both collections, using the Simple Set Alpha from the store. I love the playful and simple letters, and mixing the colours is lots of fun too!

Next, I wanted to fill the bottom of the page, but didn't want to use my typical background cut file, so I diecut a bunch of different labels from Labels One, again in varying papers from the Jillibean Soup collections.

I added in some diecut Ink Splats and then added in a bunch of Jillibean Soup stickers, wood enamel dots and wood veneers to finish my page quite easily.

I love how it all came together quickly, and colorfully too!
