"It's Your Birthday"

Welcome to our January Art Philosophy Blog Hop! We are starting a new year of blog hops for you all featuring Close to My Heart's exclusive Art Philosophy Cricutcartridge.  The Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge is available exclusively through a Close to My Heart consultant.

This month we are featuring a "birthday" theme for you.  In this hop, you will see projects featuring this versatile cartridge from many talented crafty ladies!  Enjoy our blog hop!  

Here is my birthday project for you:

I made this cute A2 size card using paper from a retiring paper pack from Close to My Heart called Stella.  The first layer of the card was cut at 4" x 5 1/4".   The cute little pennants were cut using our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  The images can be found on the following pages:  page 49, C9, < Banner4 > cut at 1"  AND page 59, C9, < Banner5 > cut at 1".

Now the stamp set that I used is actually giving you a little "sneak peak" at a stamp set that is coming out in our new Idea Book that goes live on 2/1.  It's called "Perfect Fit - Birthday" and I just LOVE it!  It coordinates with both the Art Philosophy AND Artiste Cricut cartridges.  The 3 circled images on the bottom of the card came from that stamp set.  I used Lagoon and Sunset ink to stamp them.  The circles can be found on page 21, A1, < Circle1 > cut at 1 1/4".  I used Liquid Glass to adhere the twine for the pennants and the pennants onto the twine. This is a GREAT adhesive!
