An Artistry Blog Hop - CTMH's Newest Cricut Collection

Welcome to our Artistry Blog Hop!  If you haven't heard the new about Close To My Heart's newest Cricut Collection then you must have been under a rock the last 6 days!  On Saturday, Close To My Heart released the much anticipated Artistry Cricut Collection - one whole month BEFORE the Annual Inspirations Idea Book is due to come out.  The CTMH SOTM Blog hoppers have put together a fun blog hop to showcase this new cartridge.  If you arrived here from Darlys Recker's blog you are on the right track!  The hop is a big circle so when you get back to where you started - whether it was here or someone else's blog, you will know you've completed the hop!

The new cartridge has so many fun things! Backgrounds, Banners, Borders, Layers, Shapes, Icons and even a fun Font!  I had a hard time deciding what to create first!  A VERY HARD TIME!!!  So much to choose from!   Just like our other collections, Artistry also comes with three D-size stamps sets AND it also comes with a pack of our Enchantment Cardstock!  This 20 sheet pack of cardstock has 2 each of 12 colors - and 7 of the colors are our BRAND NEW COLORS!  I decided to create a card that showcased some of the new colors.

I cut a large shape in New England Ivy cardstock and used the Quaterfoil Embossing Folder.   Next I cut a background of flowers and vines in the new Saffron color.  The layered butterflies were cut from the new colors of Poppy and Sapphire.    My sentiment is from the Big Hug stamp set (D1584).
Even though the card looks detailed it was really quick and easy to put together!

Now it is time to hop on over to Michelle Battitori's blog and see what she has created for you!

Once you are finished with the hop, I'm sure you want to get your hands on this newest cartridge right away!!  If you don't already have a consultant, just hop over to my website and order.  If you have the new Explore or Explore Air, this cartridge is ALSO available for just $79.  You get the same collection except you do not get the actual cartridge.  You will get a code when your collection arrives that you will enter into your account and the cartridge will download!
