As I mentioned in yesterday’s video, I hadn’t played with the Perfect Picture stamp set from the Artistry Bundle. Well, I changed that! I figured out what I needed to do to create with those cuts and I tried it out with 4 VERY simple cards.
I know this card was saved in the recesses of my mind, and when I saw the new Shimmer Trim, I wanted to create this super elegant card and made a bow. I stamped the images in Slate on some grey cardstock. That top image is one of my FAVORITEs from the new catalog. I can’t wait to share it with you on Sept. 1st!! I also stamped the frame in Slate ink and the Happy Birthday with white ink.
To create the bow, I attached the shimmer trim to the front of the card, then I added a loop of trim, without peeling off the backing. Then I added a straight piece and dove tailed the ends. I wrapped some around the middle to hold it all together.
I think I need to get this on video for you, but I really wanted to try it out once!!
These are both some very simple cards. For the Thanks card, I stamped the sentiment in Glacier and the frame in Slate inks. I ran the Glacier cardstock through my Big Shot with an older stripe embossing folder. I added some gray cardstock with the ends dove tailed behind the frame. And added the finishing touches of the gems.
These would be simple to recreate!
This one was even easier. I stamped this fun pattern (stamp set coming Sept. 1st) in Slate ink of grey cardstock. Then I added it with some of our new Aqua Shimmer Trim.* It adds just a snap of color and shimmer! LOVE IT!!
The sentiment is stamped in Sorbet ink and frame in Slate. Then I added some enamel gems to the side of the frame just to make it pop a bit more!
Super quick cards to show off the Framed stamp set.

This is something new to me and super exciting. I can’t wait to share with you!
I want to share with you the new Cricut Artistry Bundle that is available from CTMH and later this week, I'll share with you a couple projects with this bundle! So if you are just here for the projects, I'll be back tomorrow for my Not You Everyday Card Series video. And then on Thursday with some Cricut projects.
I have a feeling you might come back and see how you can get the bundle!!
The Cricut Artristry Collection is an awesome deal!! You get an amazing Cricut Cartridge with over 700 images on it! WHAT!! You get 3 D-Size Stamp sets, with images that coordinate with the images on the cartridge. Plus you get this amazing Enhancement Cardstock Combo Pack!
There are two price points for this. For everything shown, it’s $99. For the digital version, in which you get an online code for the cartridge images (for those of you with the Cricut Explore and Cricut Air), the price is $79.
Now, I know that is a bit of sticker shock, but you have to see what is included in this cartridge!! Plus you have to remember that the images coordinate now only with these three stamps sets, but also with stamps sets available in the Idea Books. Watch the video below.
