Cricut Artiste Showcase

Artiste Showcase

Good morning crafty friends,
It’s me, Melin here with you today! Hope you are getting ready for another great, crafty week! Today is our weekly Cricut Cartridge showcase. I decided to shine the spotlight on the Close To My Heart, Cricut Artiste Cartridge. I am a Close To My Heart Consultant and I have this wonderful cartridge available if you still haven't purchased it: HERE
All of the following projects were created with the Cricut Artiste Cartridge Only. I may have used a Martha Stewart Border punch here or there, but otherwise ALL die cuts and paper piecings were created with this super versatile cartridge.

I created three new projects for today’s showcase and then below those are photos of previous projects with their direct post links. So let’s get right to it.

I stamped it in green(Topiary Ink Pad)  and in Red (Cranberry Ink Stamp Pad)  and then cut the roses out of the Cranberry stamped image and layered onto the green stamped image. I also changed the placement of the tiny rose bud. Lastly, I stamped and embossed the “smitten” sentiment which is part of the same January Stamp of the Month set.

  9. OK I am convinced, I have ordered the Cricut Artiste cart through my reg consultant, but do you have directions or cut pages or anything to make these paper piecings? I am not sure I have the skills to do this without a little direction. Thanks so much for sharing I love you work!
