Father's Day & your Cricut!

All you need to create this card is some paper from the Pemberley Paper Pack and your Close to My Heart Exclusive Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge for cutting the banners and the Fleur de lis.The Outdoor Denim background has been cut to fit the card front and lightly sanded for texture. All of the shapes have been sponged with Desert Sand ink.The center strip is one of the zip strips! I love using these!
If I didn't have to mail this card I would add some Mocha Pearls to the Fleur de lis, lucky for me my dad isn't a fancy guy!

Key Moments stamp set

 The sentiment in this stamp set could be used for many different occasions. I like this stamp set because you have the option of using the sentiment inside the watch circle or using the clock face stamp. If you use the clock face on the outside of your card you can use the sentiment inside. The stamps for the clock hands can also be used to create a border. The stamped watch would also make a great element for a scrapbook page in your Heritage scrapbook. There are 2 key stamps included in this set and the words LOVE and FOREVER, a total of 10 stamps. TIP: use the grid on your Versamat to center the sentiment inside the watch circle and stamp them together.

I have used one of the zip strips from the Sonoma
papers to create the border on the left side of this 
card and a piece of cocoa satin ribbon.

Born to Ride!

This stamp has all the elements you'll need to make a great card for a special guy or to scrapbook all those fun shots you captured on your last adventure.
The Born To Ride banner was stamped and cut out. TIP:  To avoid the white edges that are left after cutting out the banner ink the narrow end of the sponge so it's easier to sponge all the inside edges and grooves.
This stamp set C1483 Born to Ride has another banner, wings, a cool star in a circle and an Easy Rider stamp too.

Life is a Journey

I like this stamp set for lots of reasons, 1) it has a sentiment, 2) it has images that can be used together or separately, 3) it can be used for both cards and scrapbook pages, 4) the price - only $6.95!
Here you see a card I've made but this could easily be used on a scrapbook page in place of a photo on your layout.
The footprint stamps can also be used as a border on a scrapbook page.
The pine trees could be used on a holiday card, as a border, or a stamped element on a scrapbook page.
