Hooray Bouquet with Cricut

Here is another stamp set from Close To My Heart's 2011 Autumn Winter Idea Book that I just couldn't wait to try out!  This stamp is called Hooray Bouquet and it has six stamps that coordinate with images on the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.

I needed to make a card for a co-worker that is retiring this week. (Lucky gal!)  This was the perfect stamp for the card I had in mind.

Hooray Bouquet and Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
The card pattern is from Wishes - Open Outline.   Although there is a template with the book for the cut out circle, I used my cricut cartridge to cut them out.  EASY! Desert Sand is the base for my 6x6 card.  I chose the sorbet pattern paper from the Elemental Paper pack and used one of the circle dimensional elements from the coordinating Elemental Compliments.  Next I cut out the two flower shapes with the Arts Philosophy cricut cartridge - one on Sorbet cardstock and the smaller one on Colonial White cardstock.   I stamped both with Sorbet ink. The center of the flower is another Elemental Compliment.   My "hip hip hooray!" was stamped in versa mark ink and I heat set with Clear Detail embossing powder.   Next I sponged Pacifica ink over the Mixed Shape dimensional element.   My final touch was a Just Blooms Paper Shapes butterfly sponged in Sorbet ink with 2 bitty pearls.
