November Joyful Stars Blog Hop with You Are Here Cricut Cartridge

Welcome back to another Joyful Stars Blog Hop! We are a group of Close to My Heart consultants who share something each month on the 9th and at 9PM EST. If you are coming from Joyce Hauck's blog you are on the right track. (The complete lineup is also on Joyce's blog in case you get lost.) Have fun being inspired!  

My cards were made with the latest Close to My Heart cricut cartridge called "You Are Here".    I also used the Artbooking cartridge to cut the Eggplant cardstock frame.  The background panel is Flaxen cardstock and the cut image is New England Ivy cardstock.  The greeting is from the Thoughtful Bird stamp set.  Sponge Daubers were used to color the White Daisy cardstock with Cranberry, Sorbet, Eggplant, Sweet Leaf and Tangerine inks.

This card was easy enough to make so I made a second one and colored the fruits in with Shin Han Touch Markers--Carmine, Marigold, Lavender, Leaf Green and Golden Yellow.  I created this in Design Space--here is the file if you would like to replicate it.

Which coloring method do you like better?

Now it's time to hop on over to Betty Locco's blog. I'm sure you'll be inspired by what she shares.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
     Archiscraps--Use Fruit 
     Sparkles Forum Challenges--Autumn Colors
     Little Red Wagon--Harvest Time
     Wonderful Wednesdays--Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!

  1. How did I overlook this Cricut cut? It is beautiful on your cards!

  2. Great cards. I like the card you sponged. It has more variation in color which looks like shadows and highlights.

  3. Beautiful cards - I have not used that cut yet. I really like the dimension on the one with sponged fruit.

  4. Great Thanksgiving card, I like both. What size did you cut these or did you use design space?

    1. It is standard A2 size. I have updated my blog post to include the link for the Design Space file.

  5. So pretty! I had cut out one of these images for my "You Are Here" display board, but only used cardstock for my colored backgrounds. I like the ShinHan marker one that you colored, but they both are nice & I'm sure look a bit different in person too! :)

  6. Beautiful Thanksgiving card, love the fall colours! Thanks for joining our challenge this week with Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.
