September Art Philosophy Blog Hop

If you are looking for the Scraps to Treasures Bookmark Swap Hop, click here.

Welcome to our September Art Philosophy Blog Hop!  Each month we will showcase our amazing Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge which can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant.

Since Halloween is just around the corner, this month we will be featuring projects for Halloween made using the Art  Philosophy Cricut cartridge!  Hope you don’t get too scared by the time you get to the end of our hop!

If you just happened to come to this blog, you're in the right place! 

My project is a Halloween card using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. These are the cards I'm going to be sending out this year:

I made this card using our exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, Moonlight Workshop on the Go Kit paper pack and black ink.

The card shape can be found on page 63, E3, Card, < Square5 > cut at 4 1/2".  The next layer was cut at 4 1/4".

 I then cut the trees from pages 56 and 62.  

Page 56, D6, Shift, Layer, < Leaf4 > cut at 3"

Page 62, Shift, Layer, < Leaf1 > cut at 3"

I used the stamp set from the Moonlight Workshop on the Go to stamp the fence, the spider, and the sentiment "Who's Afraid?"
