Art Philosophy Blog Hop

Welcome to the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop.
All the stops along this blog hop will be show casing projects made with the very versatile Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. If you are visiting from Amanda's blog then you are in the right place, if not, please go and start from the beginning at my team member Courtney's blog.

I always struggle coming up with new ideas for masculine cards so I challenged my self to make one for this and here is what I came up with:

Original Artwork c CTMH
Card design by: Darla Haverstock

I used the paper lace 2 cartridge to make my own embossing folder for the background (if you're local I teach classes on how to do this). I then inked the embossed panel by lightly rubbing the ink pad over the raised parts (I used Silver Staz-on ink). The bike image and sentimetnt tag is from C1483 Born To Ride and the sentiment tag coordinates with which is the 4th row 5th column of the white buttons on the keypad overlay and is cut at 1 1/2" (which it tells you right on the stamp set what size to cut it at). The "tire tread" strip is from the stamp set that comes in the Cruisin' Workshop on the Go kit (I love this one!!).

Hope you enjoyed my project today.

Next you should go to Connie's blog and see what she has in store for you. :)

INSIDE THE CRAFTERS STUDIO - Celebrate easel card

This is my project that I made for my guest designer spot over at CreatingwithArtPhilosophy for February 10th, 2012. If you attended my full day cricut class in Truro you got to make this for yourself. :) For this card I used the center point feature with the cricut marker to create the white shaped layer with the brown frame inside. I made a video on how to do this which you can find here

Everything for this card was cut using the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge. The stamps used were the ones that come bundled with the cartridge as well. :)
