Sentiment Holiday Card

Artfully Sent Sentiment Card - this one is found on page 47 of the booklet. It is actually the insert for the Warm Winter Cheer Card found on the same page.  As you can see it makes a great card too.  It is cut at 4 1/4" and makes a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 finished card.  What cuts out are the snowflake circles at the bottom or they can be on the side if you prefer that look.
This paper is Snowhaven.
The cute bear is from the October stamp of the month Home for the Holidays.
It was cut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge, you can see the name of Cartridge shone on each compatible shape and what size to cut it, that is all in pink on this photo.
This fun Holiday stamp set is only available until the end of month, so don't wait if you want it.

Who doesn't want a added surprise in their order? This month with a $50 order you will receive a free roll of Chevron Ribbon.  I wonder what you will get?  Cranberry or Outdoor Denim?  Surprise

Artfully Sent Merry Christmas Card

Yuletide Carol is the perfect paper for this Sentiment card from the Artfully Sent cartridge page 48.  This is a 5 x 45.7 card.  I stamped the Holly (A1115 A Holiday) on Colonial white cardstock with New England Ivy ink after cutting out the shapes with the Art Philosophy Cartridge. The ribbon is Red chiffon ribbon from a local craft store.
 This is a smaller version of the same card in the foreground.  It is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I used the same paper and stamps on this one.  In the background you can see the inside of the 5 x 7 card.  I also made an envelope for the 5 x 7 using more of the Yuletide Carol paper, this cut is found on the Artfully Sent cartridge on page 45.

Artfully Sent Simply Inspired Blog Hop

Welcome to another CTMH Simply Inspired Blog Hop.  This month we are featuring the new  
If you came here from Dana's blog you are on the right trail.  If you should get lost along the way, you can find a complete list of sites here .  I hope that you find a lot of inspiration this month using the new Artfully Sent Cartridge.

There are so many fun cards you can make with the fabulous new cartridge

Here is my finished card for the Hop.  I choose a Scene Cards page 33 with a insert shown on page 31.

I cut  the card cut out of Chalk It Up Paper Packet with the insert done in Colonial White cardstock.
There are a lot of combinations you can put together to create all different sorts of one of a kind cards. Check out the cool stitched insert, that was found on another page of the booklet, page 31. The saying is  stamped with Happy Birthday from the Joyful Stamp set in Lagoon Ink.

Included on the cartridge are envelopes with liners, in both 4x6 and 5x7 sizes.  This one is a 5x7 found on page 49 of the booklet.  It's easy to make a matching envelope with a fun liner.

This is how the card started out, looking a little washed out.

So I decided to jazz it up a little by adding some flowers off the Art Philosophy Cartridge done in Teal Glitter paper and Sorbet cardstock then added some more Teal Glitter paper under the word congrats.  I colored a few Sparkles with our Shinhan Markers to add the flower centers and to highlight the corners.  I cut the insert down a little and added some Sorbet cardstock under the insert.  I used some chiffon ribbon for a little more interest.

As you can see the completed card looks totally different than what it started out as. That is just part of the fun with this great new cartridge, Artfully Sent!

Now hop on over to Michelle's blog and see what she has created for you.
