Cricut ARTBOOKING Pumpkin Shape card with a video

Hello, friends!

Today's Bitten By the Bug challenge called for me to make a shaped card. Well, I love making shaped cards, but always forget to make them. They are super simple to make. Not convinced? I made a video below on how to do this quickly and simply using the Cricut Craft Room.

This project is made using the Artbooking Cricut cartridge, Geometric Background stamp set, and the Perfect - Fit Halloween stamp set. I stamped the solid cardstock with the background stamp set to give it a monochromatic look. I love doing this because I can add a little more depth and detail to a project with out overwhelming it.

I used Goldrush, Black, and Buttercup CTMH cardstock.

I colored seam binding using a Gypsy CTMH marker to get exactly the color I wanted. The sentiment is stamped using the Perfect Fit Halloween stamp set.

This week's prize is the Create A Friend cartridge! The winner will be announced on Sunday the 15th.

To win:
1) Follow this blog or subscribe via email.

If you order the Artbooking cartridge in the month of September you qualify to get four extra stamp sets! That's right four! Let me explain, any order over $50 entitles you to get a limited edition triple stamp set for only $10 and the stamp of the month for only $5.

Here is how it breaks down:


- Artbooking Bundle (includes cartridge, 3 coordinating stamp sets, and 3 sheets of coordinating chipboard A $125 retail value) for $99
 

- Stamp of the month (a $17.95 retail value) for $5

- Triple Stamp set ( a $47.90 retail value) for $10


That is $190.85 worth of things for only $114! A total savings of $75.85! For $114 you get a cricut cartridge, 7 stamp sets, and 3 sheets of coordinating chipboard! This is the best deal there is going to be all year! Get your's today!

I love your shaped pumpkin card Melanie! I loved the video too. My problem I have with shaped card is that when I line them up and flip them, and then cut out-they never seem to line up perfectly. It's so frustrating because on my Gypsy they are lined up perfectly, the I flip and move my image up and think that I'm go to go, but I'm not after it is cut out. Drives me insane!!! lol Hugs!

Like the Pumpkin shaped card. Got my Artbooking Cricut cartridge linked to my Gypsy. Could not get it linked over weekend. Had to upgrade my Gypsy. It began upgrade and then would sit there forever at looking for updates. Restarted it several times. Was getting indication of 'bridge errors.' Not sure what that was. Then the site indicated site was down for maintenace. Finally got Gypsy upgraded & cartridge linked this morn. Did get a bridge error at end but it seemed to be fine when I linked the cartridge so have no idea what that was all about. Did anyone else have this problem. I last upgraded early this yr so thought I was good to go but had 7 updates when it finally went thru upgrade. Would like to know what anyone else discovered.
