Hi all! Hope you’re enjoying your weekend. First off I’d like to thank My Time Made Easy for choosing my Sweet Moments card as the challenge winner last week – woohoo!
I just received my brand spankin’ new CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge on Friday and wowee is it ever fantastic! You’ll probably see me use it quite a bit over the next little while as I check out all it can do. Very exciting!
My first project was to make a note card gift set for my sister-in-law. She is a teacher and can always use note cards. Here is a picture of the finished set…
I cut out the box using the Artiste cartridge and assembled it. I then added some patterned paper to the bottom and a paper border around the middle. Here is the box on its own without the cards in it.
My next step was to make a set of 10 cards. I decided to cut 10 different coloured mattes and use 2 different floral stamps as the focal images. I tried to colour them so they matched the mattes. Here are a few pictures of some of the cards.
Stamp set – Lovely Lily
All the images were coloured with Copic markers by yours truly!
The last thing I added to the mix was a gift tag. I decided to stamp a diamond background in Garden Green ink onto a chipboard tag and then stamped the greeting and flower with Versamark. I heat embossed the images with black embossing powder and then coloured the flower with Copics. I also inked the edges with the Garden Green ink.
