Hello!! If you’ve hopped over from Pamela’s blog, you’re going the right way for the CTMH Cricut Blog Hop! Whether you’re following the hop, or not, I’m glad you’re here, and you’re welcome to hop along with us as we explore the many uses of the items included in the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection!
Our challenge was to use the stamps and/or chipboard pieces from the collection in any project. Since I really do find myself using the stamps from the bundle pretty often, I decided to further the challenge for myself and use something from each of the three sets on one project! I was also inspired by another blog post and challenge on the Cricut Circle Blog, so I decided to incorporate that too!
To start, I chose papers from the Footloose paper pack and grabbed some corresponding ink pads (Creme Brulee, Lagoon, Sweet Leaf, and Smoothie). I cut out my shapes to the sizes stated on the stamp carrier sheets – how handy are those! Here’s a tip – since sometimes it can be tricky lining up the stamped image with the cut (I’m sure we’ve all experienced the exhale of breath that sends our cuts flying! lol), keep your cuts on the sticky Cricut mat until they’re all stamped – I call it non-slip stamping 😉
Once my shapes were stamped and the edges were inked in Creme Brulee, I arranged my cuts onto my card front and, after deciding where I wanted my twine to go, I drew three faint lines with pencil.
Here’s the tip I learned from the Circle Blog – I used Terrifically Tacky tape to adhere my twine, as seen here (I’m loving this technique, especially since I can’t quite get the stitching with twine down pat yet!):
I finished the card up by popping up my stars with foam tape, and added a bit more twine to the tag. A little bit of sparkle, and we’re done!
This card is also entered into a challenge at Lily Pad Cards 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
