Artiste - You make me smile

Yes, the time is finally here, the new Close to my Heart Cricut cartridge ARTISTE is available for order starting today.  You are going to love this cartridge, it has so many awesome things on it.  Will share more about it at a later date or you can go check out the handbook for yourself.  ARTISTE handbook
Well here is a card I created using cuts from the Artiste cartridge.
The papers for this card were printed on my Imagine (yes it finally works)using the Berries & Cream cartridge.  This card fits into a #10 size business envelope.  The 3 label cuts and circles I cut so they would give a layered effect, the top and bottom circle I embossed using my Cuttlebug then stamped the sentiment in the center circle with a CTMH stamp. 
Now my favorite part are the cute little bows, yes they too were cut using the Artisite cartridge, aren't they adorable.   It is one of a few bow cuts on this cartridge. 
Now the best part is not only do you get the Artiste cartridge you also get 3 coordinately stamps sets and 3 sheets of chipboard.  Both the stamps and the chipboard match cuts on the Artiste cartridge.

For the month of August I will run a special, if you order the Artiste cartridge or the Art Philosophy cartridge through my CTMH website I will send you one C-size stamp set of your choice and one $9.95 paper pack.  Click HERE to go to my website.  Just shoot be an email with your choices after you place your order.  Believe me when I say you will not be disappointed with this cartridge, I am just beginning to explore it and there is so much more, nor would you be with Art Philosophy.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you like this card.
