The Artiste in 3D Blog Hop

Welcome to our The Artiste in 3D Blog Hop!  There are so many fun features  in our Artiste Cricut cartridge that we decided to showcase many of the 3D Objects

Take a closer look or to place your order for this Artiste Cartridge please click on the link that says Artiste Cartridge.

In this hop, you will see a variety of projects featuring the 3D Object key of the Artiste but don’t worry, you won’t need special glasses to see them!  (But we do hope our projects will “stand out” to you.)

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog –Love to Create  If you came from " Wendy Kessler " My Scrapbooking Blog "

I needed to make a quick wedding gift and this little box had been calling my name. It is from page 71 under the 3D object tab. I used some special black and white paper and cut it like the instructions suggested. It is perfect for a gift card and some candy for the new couple. Thanks for checking it out and I hope you enjoyed looking at my quick project.

Frosted Glass

I am doing this project now in July because I have a bunch of these hurricanes left and the itch for snowflakes and winter hit me. I am setting it to post later in October or November though because I know I will be busy then and not have a lot of time to create. So here is a frosted glass hurricane that I made.
Frosted Glass spray paint
snowflakes cut from Art philosophy cut on vinyl 2.5"
You cut the snowflakes out and create your pattern around the hurricane. The you spray the glass with frosted glass. Let it dry for a bit and then peel off the snowflakes. It is very simple to do and the results are stunning. The picture does not do it justice. So there you have it, my project in July!

Message Board

Hello everyone. It looks like fall is here and they are talking maybe a chance for snow this weekend??? Doesn't surprise me. I just hope we get a lot of snow this winter :) I couldn't sleep a couple of nights ago so I created this. I am making them for the craft fair in Kinsley on November 17. If you don't have anything planned you might jot it down and come check out all the goodies there. This is not that hard of a project, especially if you have the Art Philosophy cartridge from Close to My Heart (CTMH) and a cricut. I cut my rectangle out using that cartridge which saves a TON of time. I found these trays and they are the perfect size for this.
Supplies Needed:
Metal tray
Scrapbook paper (I used Florentine from CTMH)
clear glass pebbles
stamp (optional)
Magnets (got mine at walmart)

Here are the basic directions:
1. Use large clear pebbles and coordinating paper for your magnets. I used clear glass available through CTMH to glue down the pebbles to the paper. Let dry and then cut out around the pebbles. Next glue magnets (got mine at wally world) to the back of the pebbles creating your hand made magnets.

2. While your pebbles are drying measure and cut out your paper of choice. Glue it down to the tray you are using.
 3. Add your magnets to the tray and you are good to go! quick and easy.
4. If you want to hang your tray you can drill some holes in the top and add ribbon to it or use magnetic tape to the back. I haven't added ribbon to this one yet, but I plan to.

Thanks for checking out this fun and cute project. If you have any questions please let me know.

Western Thanks

Today I was up early so I finished up these cute thank you cards. I love the western feel of them. I used the new Rugged Dude pocket stamp, the Artiste sentiment stamp set and cartridge for the "thanks", and the daisy was cut at 1.5,1.25, and 1 " then inked with creme brulee, chocolate, and sweet leaf inks. I added a little green gem to the center to finish them off. The picture does not do this card justice. I hope you enjoy this post and have a great day!

Candy Pocket

Today I am using some new stamps that I have been wanting to use for a while. The pocket is from the Rugged Dude stamp set. I used sweet leaf and olive ink colors for it. The candy is cute from the Mini Monsters Cricut cartridge. The sentiment is the new October Stamp of the Month that you can get for $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase this month only. The inside sentiment says  Wishing you a season filled with sweetness. The paper is from Martha Stewart.

Peace on Earth

Good morning! Today I am sharing a dozen shimmery Christmas Tree cards. I used the art philosophy cartridge to cut all the shapes.The tree is cut from a shimmery green. I used the Glory to God stamp set from CTMH for the Peace on Earth and on the inside I used Merry and Bright stamp set from CTMH.  Then I added glitter and some ink to the edges. Thanks for looking!
