Handmade Holiday Cards and 3D Projects with CTMH's Artiste

Well, as you may have read, I'm working myself simple getting ready for my big Operation Smile Charity Crop that is this coming Saturday.  As a reminder, it is being held in Bala Cynwyd PA, which is just outside of Philadelphia.  Anyway, I wanted to make sure that I had plenty of samples featuring the terrific CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  Every Monday Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog posts a new challenge so I figured I might as well knock off 2 birds with one stone.  :o)

The card is made using Pear and Partridge.  I LOVE CTMH's Christmas Paper this year!  The mittens were cut using the Artiste Cartridge and stamped with the upcoming October Stamp of the Month.  The sentiment is also from the STOM.  :o)

We can't forget that there is also another major Holiday in December...Hanukkah!
The gift bag, tag and slider card were all cut using Artiste!  The stamped images are from a new stamp set called Festival of Lights (A1133.)  It is so hard to find a nice Hanukkah stamp and I am thrilled that CTMH has released a great one.  The images were stamped using the pigment inks.  The Outdoor Denim, used here, provided great coverage and a lovely effect. 

The time has come to head off to my floral design work.  Don't forget...the Operation Smile Charity crop  is only a few days away.  If you would like to join in on the fun, please contact me ASAP as I must give the numbers to the caterer very soon.  I would love to have you join us for the fun event!  For Now, Happy Crafting!
