CTMH Art Philosophy Blog Hop

Welcome to another Art Philosophy Blog Hop.  This month we will be showcasing the “Card” feature of the cartridge.  Did you know there are 100 different card shapes you can make with this cartridge?  You heard me correctly — 100!!!  Now we won’t be able to show you ALL 100 card options, but we will show you as many as we can.  The blog makes a circle so you can start anywhere and continue until you are back to where you started.  If you are coming from Connie’s Blog, you are on the right path.

Lucy Kelleher, our hostess and fellow CTMH Consultant, will be giving away a stamp set!!  She is giving away the April 2012 Stamp of the Month set that can no longer be purchased called “You are…”  (Retail Value $17.95)  You can see a picture of the stamp set on Lucy’s blog.  To enter to win you must comment on Lucy’s blog and all the blogs in this blog hop.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Dotty For You Paper Packet, Art Philosophy Cricut Collection, Baker’s Twine Paradise Assortment, SparklesParty Pennants stamp set and Black ink.

I chose the card feature on page 65 of the Art Philosophy booklet with the shift key.  I used my 1 1/4 circle punch for circles which show through the front of the card to color the flowers.  It is so easy to create amazing simple cards like this one with Art Philosophy.

Your next stop is Joanne’s Blog.

New Perfect Pair – Sophia

If you want Sophia for free, now is the time to order!  Place an online order of $75 or more on my website and you will qualify to receive a popular paper packet and coordinating accessory—a Perfect Pair—for free!  That’s a retail value of up to $17.90!  Different Perfect Pairs are available on different dates throughout the month so you’ll want to place more than one qualifying order to snatch several Perfect Pairs.  Place your order early in the availability period, as the promotion is while supplies last.  There is no replacement item for Perfect Pairs that run out before their schedule end date, which means you will want to shop early for the Perfect Pairs you want to ensure you get one!
