Happy Spring! Welcome to the Damask Divas’ Taste of Summer Blog Hop. If you came to my page from Traci’s page, then you are in the right place. You can always start at the beginning or navigate to the various participant’s pages by going to the Damask Divas team blog page at http://www.damaskdivas.com or click this link.
These papers with their juicy, colorful, fruity prints are so much fun. I made some simple and quick cards to share with you.
This Taste of Summer paper pack (Item # CC1038) and the coordinating stamp set (CC1039) are the Constant Campaign from Close to my Heart for May 2015. You can only get these papers in May, so be sure to contact me or your own consultant to order. My CTMH online store is located at http://cydneyfowlercreations.ctmh.com or click this link.
The celebrate sentiment is from the Dizzy Circles stamp set (Item # C1610). I used coordinating CTMH ink pads and colored the Thank You with a Shin-Han marker (P83 – Lavender). I used CTMH archival ink for the black sentiments. The card bases and envelopes are the White Daisy value pack (Item # X254). Of course, I used my CTMH acrylic blocks to stamp with, and my Versamat to help get a nice clear imprint (Item # Z1279). The Thank You stamp is retired, but still one of my favorites.
Your next stop on the hop is Felica’s page. I hope you enjoy seeing all of creations and they inspire you to make your own. Happy Crafting!
I got a jump start on the holidays by making fifteen holiday cards using the Close to my Heart Snowhaven Workshop on the Go (WOTG) card making set. It comes with everything you need to make these beautiful cards – card bases, envelopes, stamps, trims and papers with complete instructions. To buy this and other Workshop on the Go kits, visit my online shop at http://cydneyfowlercreations.ctmh.com (you can click on the address to be directed to that website). The item # for the Snowhaven WOTG is G1085. At $24.95 it is a bargain and you will have the instructions and stamp set for later use. Here is how my cards turned out:
I hope this inspires you to try a Workshop on the Go kit! Happy Crafting!
I used the Brushed paper pack for one set of cards and the Pathfinding paper pack for the other. These are both current Close to my Heart paper packs found in the Annual Inspirations Idea Book and Catalog. Any of the beautifully coordinated CTMH paper packs work well for these cards. I find the link to this one sheet wonder template and tutorial on Pinterest. It is by Jessica and can be found at http://inkitupwithjessica.com/one-sheet-wonder-tutorial. There are many one sheet wonder templates to choose from on Pinterest. This one caught my eye and I found it easy to follow and use. I like the way the cards come out. You only use one sheet of B&T duos patterned paper and four sheets of coordinating solid papers (two of each of two colors) plus one sheet of white for the sayings and images to be stamped on. The template illustrates what sizes to cut the patterned paper and which cards they go with (A, B, C, D and E). The tutorial explains how to cut the other pieces easily and how to put all of the cards together. You need sixteen card bases. I used the CTMH bulk card bases or you can make your own out of 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper. Cut the 11 inch side of the paper into two 5 1/2 inch pieces and fold each of those in half to get two card bases per sheet of paper. If you don’t have 8 1/2 by 11 paper, trim the 12 x 12 down – be sure to save the scraps for other uses like stamping phrases on for other cards or layouts. I used a variety of stamps from my collection for the card sayings.
I enjoyed making these coordinated all occasion cards and will move on to some holiday cards next. I also discovered a one sheet wonder set up in the Close to my Heart “Wishes” card confidence book and want to try that one too. It looks similarly easy to put together 16 cards (two each of 8 designs). The instructions and photos begin on page 110 of the Wishes book (Close to my Heart Item # 9041).

Stamp sets of your choice applicable to the occasions you want your cards for; smaller size stamps work best as the white pieces are small rectangles.

Here we are – officially in the fall season with the holidays just around the corner. The Christmas themed October Stamp of the Month (SOTM), Home for the Holidays, is available for a limited time. It can be yours for just $5.00 with a $50 purchase but it is only available to you during October. You can also purchase the October Stamp of the Month for $17.95 without a qualifying purchase. I especially love the polar bear image. The set coordinates with the Art Philosophy cartridge and provides measurements to cut pieces for all but two of the images (the candy cane and candy don’t have images on Art Philosophy but all of the others do) . Here is a sample set I cut out using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and stamped.
I also made two cards with the polar bear postage stamp. One with glitter paper and the other with paper from the Snowhaven paper pack. So cute!
You can purchase the Stamp of the Month and the supplies online at my Close to my Heart business address at http://cydneyfowlercreations.ctmh.com.

Welcome to the Damask Divas October Blog Hop! Fall is in the air and we are featuring the Pathfinding paper pack – autumn colors galore! If you got here from Lilian’s blog, you are in the right place. You can always go to the Damask Divas blog site to see all of the inspiring projects – just click here.
I made a 5×7 greeting card using the Pathfinding paper pack. I used the new Artfully Sent exclusive Close to my Heart Cricut cartridge to make the card base, envelope and envelope liner. I used my Cricut Explore and Design Space to Print then Cut the pumpkin, sentiment and leaves (these are from Artiste). If you don’t have the Explore you can just cut paper items in the usual way using Artiste and your Expression or E2 machine for the embellishments.
If you are using your Expression or E2, set the card base size according to the booklet on page 39 and page 47 for the envelope and liner. If you are using the Explore, set the size for the card base to cut at 9.34″ wide by 11.31 height. Set the envelope and liner to cut at 10″ wide with 7″ height. This gives you a little extra room in the envelope for a thick card.
In Design Space you can locate items to cut by their assigned number. Here are the numbers for the cuts I used:
Frame Card – #M1011E3
Envelope – #MEF85D
Pumpkin – #M3D514
Give Thanks and Leaves – these are part of the Harvest Layout and the items are grouped together. #MB0171 is the number. To use just the Give Thanks and the leaves, ungroup them. Hide what you don’t need by clicking on the eye for each item you want to hide. For Print then Cut – change colors to suit your theme, flatten, select all, attach.
To use the codes, make sure you put the # sign in front of the number. Insert images, make sure you are in all images. In the search box type the #number and hit enter. You should see a preview of the image. Click on the preview to insert the image. The image codes start with #M and the cartridge codes for the CTMH cartridges start with #S. This allows you to search for the cartridge image set in search in the same way as the images. It is a real time saver.

Welcome to the Damask Divas August Blog Hop featuring the Chalk It Up paper pack. If you got here from Judy’s blog, you are in the right place. You can always go to the Damask Divas blog to start from the beginning and/or to see the entire list of participants. I created a cute card using the featured papers and the new Great Job stamp set. I used the Colonial White pigment ink pad so it looked like chalk on the black paper. Remember to let the pigment ink dry well. It goes on thick so I blotted it to make it look more see through like chalk. I fussy cut the Great Job and the shooting star shapes out. I used the new Touch markers to color the shooting stars and pop dotted them for dimension. I also used the zip strip from the graphics paper to make a “ribbon” under the saying. The smaller black square is the reverse of the paper that also has a chalkboard look to it. The card base is Colonial White. I like to use the pre-made CTMH card bases that come with envelopes. You get a pack of 50 cards and envelopes for $14.95 and they look professional. I used archival ink to stamp the shooting stars since I was going to color them in with markers. The archival ink won’t bleed from the markers.
