Death before Decaf Mixed media project

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through my links.

Here's my project for this weeks "Mixed Media Monday" over at Cricut Explore and More.

The stack of teacups is an image from Cricut Design Space.  The image number is #MB5DD69 and is from the "Dimensional Scenes - Tea & Cakes" digital cartridge. This cartridge is included in the Standard and Premium Cricut Access subscriptions.

The "Death before Decaf" sentiment is an SVG from Creative Fabrica.

My inspiration for this project came from two Mixed Media artists that I follow. The background is very loosely based on this video:

And the stack of teacups is inspired by this video:

Some of the products I used are listed below.

Dylusions Paint - Laidback Lilac, Crushed Grape and Melted Chocolate
Prima Art Alchemy Sparks Acrylic paint - Iris Potion
Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint - Metallique Dark Velvet
Tim Holtz Distress Crayons - Walnut stain, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Festive Berries
Sharpie Water based Extra Fine Point Paint pens - Black, White
Stickles - gold
Dylusions Stencil - Sugar Lumps Small

I didn't have a "coffee stain" stamp so I created my own circles by dipping a bottle cap into my
Dylusions Melted Chocolate paint.

Hope you'll drop into Cricut Explore and More to see our Design Teams Mixed Media projects. More of our members are also getting into the Mixed Media act too and are posting their projects.

You'll find us here:  Cricut Explore and More Facebook Group

CRICUT: Free Blocks card cutting file

I have a new Design Space card available over at my Cricut Explore and More Facebook group.

This is a dimensional card that folds flat to fit into an envelope.   It measures 4.25" x 5.75" when folded.  I have included a box envelope so that your card can included embellishments such as 3D flowers.

The cutting file is entirely based on a card and envelope video by Papercrafter45. It's worth giving those videos a watch to see how to assemble the card and envelope.  Don't forget to like her videos. There's no boring chatter to listen to... just great instructions. 😀


You'll find the cutting file in our "Free Design Space Projects" photo album.

This file is also available as a SVG.  You'll find that in our groups Google Drive.  Visit Cricut Explore and More for the link.

Free Design Space Bow cutting file

I have another free Design Space file for you. This one is a pretty bow that you can use on a card or on a gift box.

It's sized to fit on the front of a 6x6" card but it's easily resized to make it smaller or bigger.
Just be sure to leave all the bow pieces stacked as you see them when you open the file, the select them all and resize.

One of the images used is from the Flower Shoppe cartridge. It's included in Cricut Access but if you don't have a subscription there will be a one off 99 cent charge. After that you won't have to pay again.  The other images are all free.

The inspiration for this bow comes from a blog post here: 

Be sure to check out the blog post to see the beautiful card that Annette made.

You'll find the Design Space file link over at Cricut Explore and More in our Free DS projects album.

(You must be a member of Cricut Explore and More to access the file.)
