I have been too busy to participate in the Australasian blog hop for the SOTM stamp set but here are a couple of cards that I made some time ago when I had a card making frenzy using the Artfully Sent cartridge. I am still getting my head around all the different features so I just made some cards using the sleeve feature. These turned to be very quick and easy cards to do.
I used some of the cards that I had made with the mat ink method and using the pearl paint to line the cut cards. For details of how I have done this please click here.
For the first one I have cut the rose shaped sleeve on page 37 Sleeve>Shift at 7″ and used the pixie coloured background paper to line the cut front. The sentiment has been cut using the Artiste cartridge in the Brushed diamond patterned paper and then I have used the Cricut Craftroom to cut another shape in White Daisy cardstock slightly smaller. The sentiment is from the Artfully Sent Just to Say stamp set that comes with the cartridge and I have embossed that with the Ranger silver embossing powder. I have placed a trim of the pink shimmer trim over White Daisy cardstock trim that I have trimmed with the Scallop border punch. To finish off this easy card I have stamped and embossed with silver embossing powder the butterfly from the beautiful Armour stamp set from the Seasonals Expression catalogue and then I have used some gems from the now retired Pewter gems
Here are two versions of the same pattern from the Artfully Sent cartridge. I have used another piece of Pixie coloured base card to line the card and then I have sponged the larger accents such as the leaves, ribbon and yellow flowers from the negative pieces that have been cut from the card and then glued them onto the card. This was quite quick and easy to do and I have finished off with some Extra Thick Pixie twine and a small banner with the Get Well sentiment from the Just to Say stamp set.
For this next card I have used the cutout as a stencil and sponged the the small blue spots as the background onto a pre-cut piece of White Daisy Cardstock. On a separate card using the card as a template I have then sponged all the negative cutouts using Pixie, Olive, Flaxen Canary inks. I then used the stencil again to place the pieces onto the base cardstock.. Then using the stencil again I have adhered all the pieces onto the base card to create my card. This piece was then matted on some Pixie cardstock.
Here is the finished card with a butterfly cut out from the Artiste cartridge and some bling from the clear sparkles and some flourishes. I thought this made a lovely Mother’s Day card and again used the sentiment from the Artfully Sent Just to Say stamp set.
