Mixing it up a lil’ with some fun new cut files.

Well there was a bit of everything in today’s crafty fun… Magnets, resin, Velvet paper, stickers, cut files, glue, enamel dots…and some window cling.  Not too bad for someone who hasn’t crafted for a while lol.

I was having fun with some new CUP files. These cut files make great backgrounds  and stencils for allsorts of projects.

Lizzie Mayne’s  Gears & Cogs Frame Card  …starting off with Captain Locke by KennyK, she’s a digital coloring I did  a while back  printed and mounted on silver foil paper and then a Cohas Magnetic Sheet cut  on the Cricut. I only used the front portion of the card file… but this comes in square and rectangle as full card files.

Lizzie Mayne – Cornish Grid 3. I had a lot of fun with this Black on Black project..Cohas Magnet Sheet, Black SEI Velvet paper, Black glitter resin Skull and some Black Gina Marie Designs enamel dots.  Nothing like mixing it up a lil’ haha.. but a pain in the hoo ha to photograph an all black project with various finishes haha


Lizzie Mayne – Dhalia Flower Mat Layer Stencil. This one was fun..I cut just one of the  3 layers in this cut file using  that fab velvet paper. Mounted it on card, then colored it with Zig Clean Color pens and a touch of Chameleon Pens.  I cut that out and sliced it in half …stuck it on this plain black envelope and then stamped some fun typewriter and text stamps in a faded white ink.
Just a fun way to decorate envelopes if you are sending a hand written letter, or just need an envelope and don’t want to be bo-ring!

Lizzie Mayne  –  Brick Wave Matt Layer Stencil.  Such a fun card to make.. it’s the perfect kinda project to do with the kids, or grandkids High contrast, super fast, super easy… cut file, some glue, envelope and a card and some fun stickers… and voila.. one High contrast cute card ready to go.  Makes a fun  card for any occasion.


Judith Henry- Lattice Hearts Embellishments. I cut this heart in Cricut Window vinyl and will be putting it on my new car… this is just one of the hearts included in the cut file.  I love how well this vinyl cuts on intricate designs and fine lines.

Acetate Tulip Border Card

Another one of the fab cut files I found on CUP and grabbed with my Crafty Bob Crazy 5 minute Game winnings is this “Border Edge Card 15” by Clive Couter, he has some great designs in this style and with a little nip and tuck they make the perfect borders for Acetate card. I have been wanting to try this for ages and when I saw his designs I knew they were exactly what I was looking for.

The CUP file was cut on my Cricut and then I used my trimmer to split the file in three pieces and the center part discarded. A 1/2inch score was put on the main panel to create the flap/hinge and the border was glue to the other edge of the acetate.

The image is by Cute As A Button “Wooden Shoes” and I knew as soon as I found this border, that this was the image I wanted to use for this card. She is colored with a mix of Chameleon, Zig Kurecolor and Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Pens.

This is my Inspiration Card over at the Cute As A Button Inspiration Blog this month… Thanks for checking it out 🙂
