It's my turn to post for Paper Crafting World.
Today I'm using two cut files to create a fun card. I used the Bracket Top Card Base (turned sideways) and the Spring Banner Set. You'll want to take a look at the Spring Banner set cut file because it would make a perfect page layout. I decided to make a card instead so I didn't use the tree included in the file and adjusted the cuts to fit onto the card base.
I used patterned papers from Carta Bella Alphabet Junction (6x6) and Authentique Homestead (6x6). The files were cut on my Silhouette. When cutting small items like the banner letters, I always use the line segment overcut function at .1. It helps to make truly clean cuts.
I also used Jaded Blossom's Border Dies and some Powder Puffs chalk ink to complete the project.
Thanks for visiting today,

My 5 x 7 card features the Piggy with Bow cut file.
I love the colors in this patterned paper by Bo Bunny. It really seemed to compliment the Piggy.
The sentiment was punched out with a 1.25" circle punch and then layered with Jaded Blossom Stitched Circle and Scalloped Circle dies. I used my Silhouette to cut out the piggy and my Cuttlebug for the dies. I tried shading the pieces using CTMH watercolor pencils but decided to add a little of Copic markers as well.
Be sure to head over to Paper Crafting World to see the latest in cut files available for instant download. Melin's files work with a variety of cutting machines. I love that she added a jpeg and png file. I drag it onto my Silhouette virtual mat so I have a ready reference to assemble the file AND you can also use the image as a print and cut if you don't want to paper piece.

It's my design team day at Paper Crafting World.
I'm sharing one of PCW's digital images called Bear-Love Hearing From You.
I love this set because the sentiment comes with the file along with a print and cut/paper piecing version.
I used Distress Crayons to create the water color background before adding the Copic colored image which I cut out on my Scan N Cut. The shell was in my stash.
I love Paper Crafting World's cut files, but my crafty heart is really in digital images that I can color. I'm just beginning to play with water colors. I decided to try backgrounds first and then I'll venture into using water colors on images - stay tuned.
