I made this card featuring the Love This stamp set for a swap. I had a really hard time at first and regretted my choice of stamp set. Although I loved the set, I realized I just wasn’t any good at coloring and needed to come up with another option. This was it! It’s a nice flat card that will be great for mailing and was easy to make.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: The Party is On stamp set (hostess special), Art Philosophy cartridge, Artbooking cartridge, Cardstock (White Daisy, Pacifica), Green Glitter Paper, Ink (Pear and Ruby), and Sparkles Clear Assortment.
This is a great example of how you can make cards with the new Artbooking Cricut cartridge. I used the photo mat on page 65 of the handbook to create a frame for this card. It was very easy with the help of Cricut Craft Room (CCR). I simply resized the mat to my card size (in this case 5.5 x 4.25). I used layers for easy sizing of the added stars and to make sure the glitter stars fit well with the photo mat.
Tip: When I cut the frame in Pacifica it marked parts of the paper where the blade turns and the white core of the cardstock was showing through. I flipped this over and used the backside (which looks nicer) on my cards. Another option when cutting a more delicate image or using darker paper is to “flip” the image in CCR. This will cut the image upside down on your mat and you can flip it over to the “clean” side when you use it on your project.

I’ve had this card in my head since I got this stamp set. I thought about adding a couple sparkles by the “hello” but decided in the end to leave it a stamped-only card. This is a very simple card! The colors can be changed up as well as the sentiment for many different looks.
Now hop on over to Joy!
List of Participants:
Supplies used: White Daisy Spin Cards & Envelopes, Huntington Paper Packet, Babycakes Paper Packet, Heartfelt Birthday Wish Stamp Set, A Little Gift Stamp Set, Scallop Border Punch, Bronze Shimmer Trim, and inks (Slate, Saddle).
These are some of the new Spin Cards that we made at convention. One of the things I found very frustrating was cutting that middle square so my paper would fit the front of the card. I decided I would never make another one unless there was a better solution, so I came up with one. I created a CCR file to cut my paper to fit the front of the Spin Cards! Anyone who orders a package of the Spin Cards from me will receive this file for free, just send me an email request once you’ve placed your order. It makes them so much faster and easier to cover! Images used are from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.
Welcome to this month’s Technique Blog Hop. This month we are stamping on different mediums besides paper.
If you have already started the hop you should be coming from Debi, otherwise continue through until you make your way back here.
Originally, I had planned to use the My Creations Muslin Drawstring Bags for this project until I realized that I didn’t have any. So, I went digging through my supplies and found these cork shapes. I used my new favorite Archival Black ink to stamp on them to give a nice dark image. For the smaller black stars, I stamped them until they were completely covered with ink (or you could use a background stamp or the back of a stamp). The camera-shaped cork piece does have a circle in the middle that punches out but it was easy to keep together when I took it off the sheet and attach to my card.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: ProPlayer Paper Packet, Color-Ready Midtown Cork Shapes, Take Note Stamp Set (included in the Artbooking Cricut Collection), Slate Striped Twist Ties, and Archival Black Ink.
