Celebrate Altered box

Is this adorable or what?
 I cut this "french fry" box with the NEW ARTS PHILOSOPHY CRICUT cartridge from CTMH!
And then altered it with the new ROXY paper pack!!!
All from Close to my Heart!
The banner and SUPER COOL flowers are also cut with the same cartridge. Doesn't that stamp image fit that banner just perfectly? CTMH makes it so easy and so FUN!
I can see this filled with dress up jewlerry at a girls party or filled with goodies at a place setting for a dinner many possibilities.
AND it only took me about an hour to whip up! NICE!!!
Thanks for looking and happy creating!!!

Card Box

The more I use the new ARTS PHILOSOPHY CRICUT cartridge from CLOSE TO MY HEART, the more I LOVE IT!!!

I created this cute little card box with that cartridge, this makes it sooooo easy. After I cut the box out of cardstock, I covered with pp. Then I started decorating.

The collection comes with 3 stamp set that work hand in hand with the cartridge. I was wondering how I was going to figure out the settings for my machine so that I could cut my shapes the exact size for the stamp...BUT CTMH has that figured out. On the carrier sheet for the stamp set, the dial setting is printed right there! OMG soooOOOooOOOOooo easy once again!
 I also cute the card bases from that same cartridge. It reallly is jammed packed with shapes, cards and 3-D objects!!!!!!

Texture Kissing!!!

You have all heard of stamp kissing, now there is TEXTURE KISSING!
Jeanette Lynton shows how on her blog
Ready to do some kissing?
Stamp kissing that is, the visual kind that adds texture to stamp images to give them creative interest. Today, we’ll focus on texture kissing—check out some of these great ideas using August’s fabulous Stamp of the Month, Wicked (S1008A).

Take for instance the “Have a wicked Halloween” card. To add a subtle texture, Waxy Flax was wrapped around some chipboard in an unorganized fashion (see image on right). Then the stamped of the witch’s dress was kissed on the Waxy Flax and stamped off on another piece of paper.

This larger tag was created using our exclusive Cricut cartridge, Art Philosophy.
To create the look yourself, first cut a piece of paper with multiple images by setting the machine to autofill

Next cut the tag shape to the size indicated on the stamp carrier sheet.

Stamp the image in second generation ink onto the Cricut-cut shape
Place the paper that has been cut using the autofill function over the Cricut-cut shape and then stamp the image again.

The technique is quick and easy and what a great look! Whether you’re “kissing” or using another medium to add texture, you’ll always convey your “passion” for stamping!

That looks like so much fun, give it a try today!
