Artiste Cricut Cartridge Swing Card and my Gypsy

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...Here is the just one of the 9 swing cards or S card (since you use the S key on the overlay) on the Artiste Cricut cartridge.  These are great cards and you can get a creative or as simple as you want.  I use the Perfect Fit Frames D1527 stamp set and the Perfect Fit Halloween B1413 cut out using the Art Philosophy cartridge to fit perfectly (pun intended)  LOL!  into the center of the swing piece.
Here is the way I stamped the inside of the card using the Moonlight Scrapbooking Workshop Holidays C1512 from the WOTG Moonlight Kit G1051.  I love this stamp set!!!
 The paper is from the WOTG Moonlight Scrapbooking Kit G1051. 
The Workshop on the Go Kits are a great for beginners or for the advanced paper crafter. You get a complete My Reflections paper pack, a coordinating stamp set and embellishments, and an Instructional Brochure. This Kit is for Scrapbooking but as you can see I used it for a card.

I designed it in my Gypsy so that it would cut out 2 out of one piece of cardstock.  I used the layers so that the Perfect Fit Frame would fit and the I cut out another one larger to fit the outside piece.  I will make a how to video and show you how to do this.  You will be able to do the same thing in the CCR too.
If you have any questions leave me a comment and I will get back to you.

Pick O' The Patch Card CTMH Stamp of the Month

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
I used the CTMH Stamp of the Month Fall Favorites S1209 for this card. It is another card we did at my card class this month.
This is done with Close To My Heart Watercolor Pencils 3505 and a Blending Pen 3174.  I stamped in black ink 1386  the image of the Scarecrow and colored him in.  Then I used the Blending Pen to smooth all the colored areas and what a difference that makes.  I love how that works!

I random stamped the background with another stamp on the same set.  I used a leftover strip piece that comes on each B&T paper this one is from the Clementine paper pack X7156B.  The Pick o' the patch is from the same stamp set and stamped on a cut out from the Artiste Cricut cartridgeZ1790.  It is popped up with 3D foam tape Z1151.
This is the inside and it is stamped with another image from the Fall Favorites S1209.  It is stamped and colored in with the watercolor pencils too.  It is easy to make the colors very intense or very light.  Simple, simple, simple.
You can see that this is a very useful stamp set for this season.  I love making these cards and I think everyone in class did too.

 You can order everything you need here.
 Have you tried to us the watercolor pencils yet?
Check out what Elaine did with this stamp too

Workshop on the Go Advent Calendar Kit G1044

Well just thinking of all the up coming holidays is making my head spin.  Today Jenn put together my Advent Calendar Kit G1044.  It comes with everything you see  in these 2 pictures here plus Bitty Sparkles.  Can't forget the sparkles you know.
I love how easy it is to put together you just cut out the boxes with your Artiste Cricut cartridge from CTMH.  It comes with a set of easy to follow instruction on how to do everything you see here.  I forgot to take the picture of everything before so this is what was left.
Here is the completed Advent Calendar.  She did use some more sparkles from my stash.  I just love how it turned out.  The tips that Jenn has, would be to plan out the colors before hand so you don't end up with 2 of the same colors together.  But with the outsides all being different it really doesn't matter because they are all a little different.  
Thanks Jenn

Clementine X7156B and My Creations Bracket Frame Z1797

I was playing with all my new products from Close To My Heart and decided to decorate my Bracket Frame Z1797.  I knew I wanted to use a picture of my Grand kids that I had hanging in my scrapbook room.  Because I have 2 Granddaughters and 1 Grandson I didn't want to make it to feminine.  I also knew I wanted to use the new Clementine Paper Pack X7156B.  Here is what I came up with.
I just love the Clementine Paper Pack it is so versatile.  I love how simple it is to cover the chipboard frame using the Art Philosophy cartridge I cut out the coordinating shape page 53 in the handbook.  I use the coordinating strip that comes with each paper on the bottom right corner of the frame.  I use the Artiste Cricut cartridge to cut out the flower Accent1/Shift page 73 and leaves Accent3/Shift page 32.
Here are the products I used.
