Artiste Thanksgiving card

Hello, friends!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend! I am starting to feel a little closer to human again, so hopefully things can get back to normal. You guys have not felt too neglected have you?

Today I have a card that I made for the Bitten By the Bug challenge 2. This week's challenge calls for a project made using a turkey from any Cricut cartridge. I chose that cute little turkey from the Artiste cartridge. Mainly because I have been wanting to use the stamp set that coordinates with that little turkey.

The turkey is cut out using the cartridge and then stamped on using the coordinating stamp set. I thought about doing a cool stamping technique, but decided against it at the last minute.

One last thing, my flower card from last Thursday was actually made using the Art Philosophy cartridge and NOT the Artiste cartridge. I am so sorry for any confusion this has caused. I have been blogging for 4 plus years now and I think this is the first time I have done this. Hopefully, this little break I took reset my brain too, so this does not happen again anytime soon!

Like the Thanksgiving Turkey card. Like the Turkey stamp. At first i thought the Turkey was cut on pattern paper. I may give this a try but will use pattern paper since I do not have the stamp.

Beautiful card and the paper/color is absolutely warm and wonderful. I'll have to look at the Artiste cart and see what other great cuts it has. It's been awhile. Love your creativity as always, and so glad your feeling better.

Beautiful card. The Huntington paper pack is perfect for these fall themed cards. I don't have that stamp set so hoping I can find a stamp to use for the turkey body.
