CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop

We have a brand spankin' new Cricut Cartridge called Artistry and is amazing.  It has 700 on-trend images, 3 coordinating stamp sets and a pack of Enchantment Cardstock, which includes our 7 new colors. I am having so much fun with this cartridge.  



If you have come from  Lori Brown's Blog you are on the right path.  

Here is a card I made. 



I live on Maui and I occasionally see a pickup with 2 big dogs in the back and they are wearing "Doggles" aka dog sunglasses.  They always make me smile, because they are just so cool!!  So when I was making this dog card I just had to make him cool by giving him some "doggles"!!  I used the glasss cut, black circles inside and then filled the area with Liquid Glass.  For his snout I used an upside down heart, which I added Liquid glass to make it look damp like every healthy dog has.  

I used the following products:

Treats of Friendship

Okay..can I just say I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Treats of Friendship stamp set and the Blossom and Jackson Papers from the Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book!!

I met with my friends and fellow cult members for our monthly play day. These a some of the cards I made....


I love donuts...especially Krispy Kreme Glazed!!!!  These donuts turned out so cute and yummy.  They are colored with my ShinHan markers and I applied Liquid Glass to the sprinkles.  I stamped the background with the Assorted Edges Stamps set. I also had to add the doodle border....lovin these borders lately!!  Below are cards I made by paper piecing the cups, adding my doodle borders and then adding different details to each.  









I had so much fun making these!!!
