Artfully Sent Cards

My last card class loved the cards we made with the new CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge, so we are doing another class in February.  

This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest done by fellow consultant Melanie Brown. 
 I love a Black Red and White card.

This card is made using a few of the different images. The Cranberry flower image is actually a Pocket Card cut at 3", found on page 32.  The image was cut under the flower portion so that it would fit onto the white under piece which is 4 1/2" in height.  I adhered both sections down, and added a strip of Cranberry c/s to fill in the missing section.  The large dotted bow covers it up nicely.  
The Black image is actually and inside insert from a Scene card. It's found on page 31.  It was cut at 5".
Under that piece is Heartstrings B&T.

This card is an A2 size card.
The white pen and the bow are not Close to my Heart products.
Heartstings paper collection will be retiring on Mach 31st, so don't wait to get this great paper collection.

Another one of our cards will be this fun Sleeve Card, found on page 32.
This card is cut out of Pixie cardstock cutting at 5 1/4" wanting a card that was more A2 size.
After cutting out the Sleeve I used the card as a pattern to trace where the flowers are onto Hollyhock c/s.  When I cut it out I cut just inside the lines so that it would be just a little smaller.  Then adhered the Hollyhock section to the Pixie section using our Easy Dots Scrapbook Adhesive, this way if I got some adhesive somewhere I didn't want it I could just easily remove the extra.  If you have never tried this great adhesive I highly recommend it.  It does dry permanent.  For some added glitz, I used some Silver Sequins with colored Sparkles I colored with a Cherry Pink ShinHan Marker.
The saying is from C1570 Lifting Spirits set stamped in Hollyhock ink pad.  I cut it using our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.
The White Daisy c/s insert was cut to 5 1/2" and you would write your message on the back of it.

If you are interested in getting a set of these cards plus the others we will be making let me know, ddd4nier@aol.com.  I will be offering kits for them.

Brushed paper from CTMH is so pretty.
Here is the collection of patterned paper:

You also get 2 sheets of Pixie Pink cardstock, 2 sheets of White Daisy cardstock, 1 sheet of Canary cardstock and 1 piece of Juniper cardstock.

The White Daisy overlays and butterflies were cut on the Cricut using CTMH Artbooking Cartridge.  The flowers, leaves and OH SO were cut using CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. 
The butterflies and happy were stamped in Black using the stamp set that comes in the Brushed Workshop On the Go.
 This collection comes with the Paper Packet, the stamp set, a roll of Topiary Washi Tape and those pretty metal flowers!  Great deal for only $29.95.

Post It Note Holder

I totally can't believe I haven't posted in 3 weeks!  Shame on me!

Here is a post it note holder I made today out of an old pattern I found cleaning.

Thought it would cute in Brushed Papers.  Used Hollyhock cardstock for the base.
Ran the CTMH Art Philosophy Flowers thru my Big Shot with our Dots Embossing file folder.
Sponged the edges with matching inks, Hollyhock and Pixie. Leaves also from Art Philosophy Cartridge.
I will be posting the directions once I get them written up.
