You Are Here

You Are Here

Here’s a card using the Fresh Air paper and some of the new stamps available in the SE2.  The set I used works with the “You Are Here” Cricut Cartridge.  The Design Space file is included in the post.  The US is cut from the You Are Here Cricut Cartridge.  The stamping done in Espresso along with the distressing around the edges of the map.

The sentiment above is in the You Are Here cartridge.  Below is using the font on the cartridge.  I cut it out three times, gluing the different layers.  The bottom layer is cut from the Espresso cardstock and offset to look like a shadow.  The technique is great, looks fantastic, but I don’t recommend it for mass production!  It might be drive you a little insane.

This is the stamp set, D1778 US Vacation used:

You’re The Best

You’re The Best

I created this card for a swap and it’s also on the Come and Play Card Buffet.  Because mass production was involved, I’ve created a Design Space file to ease my cutting.   The paper pack used is Gimme Some Sugar (how cute is that?) along with Zesty Best.

The image is watercolored with ink pads: Lemon, Juniper, Tangerine, and Blossom using a small round watercolor pen.  I love that it’s loaded with water and you wipe it off a few times between different colors.  While closed, squeeze the top of the lid to the ink pad and open.  You’ll have ink in the top of the lid on the palette for watercoloring.   I did a “swipe” method, where I just swiped the color on and did not worry about getting the entire area covered.  If I wanted a little more color for shading, I did a smaller swipe.  There are some white highlights here and there.  There is a more whimsical look that goes well with the Gimme Some Sugar Paper Pack.

Once dried, take the Gold Shimmer Brush and go over the fruit, berries, and word “Best”.   Add a few bitty sparkles to the card and it done.   If you want to create this card and purchase the supplies (stamp set and paper pack) from me, I’m happy to supply you with the Design Space file.   If your order is over $25.00, you’ll be eligible to get Happy Mail and a free workshop guide from my collection (see my FB group to see them all).  I’ve just added 5 more and 3 more on the way.

Tidings of Joy – DS File

Tidings of Joy – DS File

I’m making a few of these cards up for Christmas cards to send out some tidings of joy to a few friends. Working on getting them done and out soon.  =)    The CTMH inspiration:

I created this on Design Space and the file is below.  The stamp set from the Workshop Your Way Joyful Tidings:

The other paper comes from the Silver and Gold Paper Pack and the matching cardstock pack.  I love the gold embossed papers in this pack and it can be used outside of Christmas for sure.    Color in “Joy” in red with the Shin Han Touch Marker Carmine.  I wanted some color added to the card.

I used the Red Enameled Gems to bling up the card along with the gold stars that are cut from the Circut.  Layering the stars adds some great dimension without popping it up too much to provide bulk when mailing.

Supplies you’ll need:

Noel Christmas Tunes Card

Noel Christmas Tunes Card

Have another guest artist from our Holiday Swap.  Valerie Jackson did a great job with the October Stamp of the Month – S1710 Christmas Tunes.  There are few different cards posted in the FB group showing how to use this stamp set.  I recreated the card:



Supplies needed to make:


  • Black Cardstock – 5.5″x4.25″
  • Cranberry Cardstock – 5.25″ x 4.0″
  • White Daisy Cardstock – 5.0″ x 3.75″
  • Silver and Gold B&T of your choice – cut the same as the White Daisy.  Cut diagonally and adhere the bottom part of the White Daisy.


  • Put the gold shimmer trim on the White Daisy panel before you put it on the card.
  • Stamp the image on the donut cricut cut.
  • Color in the berries and leaves with the Shin Touch markers.
  • Adhere the stamped piece to the wreath Cricut cut.
  • Add the bows.
  • Using 3D foam tape, pop up the wreath over the center of the card.  The gold shimmer trim should show through the center of the donut.
  • Add sequins.
  • Use the Stickles to accent over the colored berries, leaves, and in the center of the sequins.

This card is fast and would make a great Christmas card to make in bulk.  Fun elements without being work intensive.
