Best Wishes to you card made using the NEW CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge

Hello, friends!

TGIF! I hope you all have a fun Labor Day weekend planned! I still cannot believe it is September and it is so hot! My mother wants to do a BBQ, but I just want to stay in the AC! Just as well. I have lots of homework and crafting to do!

Speaking of crafting, I have been thinking about how best to serve you all as followers of my blog. I am lucky to have many loyal followers. All of which have many ideas on what they want to see. I have come up with an idea on how to accommodate most of you. I will still show projects made with all of those wonderful cartridges in my Cricut library, but a few days of the week I will do a tutorial of a project made using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. I know many of you own the cartridge and have asked that I keep the inspiration coming. Some of you have not been talking into it yet and might be tired of my going on and on about how much I love this cartridge. I think showing both various cartridges AND Art Philosophy projects just a few times a week, I can please most everyone.

Now on to my card. It was made a while back when I first got the cartridge. I was not overly happy with it and thought about never showing it. However, I have not had tons of time to make things lately. Therefore, I decided to give this little creation a day of sunshine.

It is made using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge, stamps, and coordinating chipboard that come with the bundle.

I used paper from the Mayberry line.
I cut the tree out at 2 1/2" (I think..I can't find my notes on this card). I just love the scalloped border across the bottom!
Then I cut out this great tag and adhered it to a coordinating piece of chipboard.

I like this card--the colors, the buttons on the tree, papers, etc. Thanks for much for doing project featuring the Art Philosophy cartridge. Got mine the other day and am beginning to use it. I can't believe all the wonderful items that can be created using this cartridge. Worth every penny of it. I got the bundle and am so happy with it.

Wonderful card and I love the tree with the buttons. What really caught my eye was the paper pack, good choice using Mayberry.

Julie said...

Love the card! Can you tell me what white pen you like the best for your "stitches"? I've had a few, but they seem to either dry out too quickly or they aren't very bright. Thanks!

Janet Hamilton said...

Personally I love seeing your card ideas for the Art Philosophy cartridge. Keep 'em comin!
And I really like today's card--glad you decided to go ahead and show it.
Good luck with school--I was a non-traditional student (way back when) and know the challenges, but it will be well worth it for you to complete your degree.

I REALLY love this card!! I can't figure out what you don't like about it, it is so pretty! I too love the scalloped border cut around the tree, such a great cut! I am so happy this card got it's day in the spotlight, it is well deserved. :) I can't wait to see more from this cartridge!

I don't know why you didn't like it...I think it is very pretty!

Can you explain the reason behind this cartridge and having to buy it from a Close to my Heart Consultant? Why can't it just be purchased. I don't understand the exclusivitity(real word??) of it.
Where does one find a consultant?
