The New CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge ROCKS!
Feel free to click on any photo in this post to see it larger and in more detail.
I am SOOOOO enjoying my new CTMH/Cricut Art Philsophy Collection. WOWZA! I think the 700 images on this baby are perfect. I think the way they fit with so many of our stamps (like in the 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card I made here) is stupendous. I think the great looks you can get by combining the images with the coordinating Dimensional Elements chipboard that comes with it is awesome. I think it's just plain WONDERFUL!
Can you believe that for just $99 you get this cartridge (check out all of the wonderful images below), 3 "D" size stamp sets with coordinating images ($53.85 value), and 3 sheets of coordinating chipboard pieces ($13.15 value). What a great deal! On top of that, check out this post that shows you how by just buying the cartridge and adding the August Stamp of the Month for $5 ($17.95 value), you can get another $42.85 in stamp sets FREE!
Now, before I show you all of the images, let me tell you a bit about the what I used and how I made the 2 cards I shared today.
Card #1: Circle Card: I made a 4 1/2" circle/snowflake card (cut with the new Art Philosophy Cricut Collection) in Holiday Red cardstock on my cricut. I random stamped the front of the card with the Snowflakes Stamp Set in Holiday Red and White Daisy ink. I backed the front of the card in Sweet Leaf Cardstock and then added some White Daisy Cardstock (all paper from the Believe Level 2 Paper Pack) behind that and cut with a pair of large scallop scissors. I finished it off with a white flower button from the Basic Buttons Collection, a little bit of Colonial White Waxy Flax to thread my button, and a bow made of ribbon from the Green Ribbon Collection. Voila! Fast, Simple and Sweet!
Card #2: Shaped Standard Size Card: I started with one of our new White Daisy Die-Cut Cards and Envelopes. I used the cards on page 76 of the Idea Book as my inspiration. I used the papers from the Believe Level 2 Paper Pack. I cut the sentiment bracket and the holly leaves using the new Art Philosophy Cricut Collection, then stamped them in Topiary and Holiday Red inks with the coordinating stamps from the Holiday Cheer and A Holiday stamp sets. I added a gingham bow to top it off from the Red Ribbon Collection. Fast, Simple and Sweet!
Now that I've wet your whistle just a little bit, how about seeing the 700 images that come in this new Cricut/CTMH Art Philosophy Collection? Are you game? I hope so!
