Welcome to my post for the CTMH Zoe Blog Hop!

If you've come from the talented Michelle Stewart's blog, you're inthe right place! 
This is my shaker card made from the new Cricut Artistry cartridge and the Zoe Paper Packet, both of which can be purchased on my website, Click on the links to go directly to those items or click here to go to my website. 

The shimmer trim is a  new color, Coral, item no. Z3088. I used the Fuse Tool to create the shaker part and filled with some sequins and birthday confetti I've had for quite some time but perfect for shakers! I realized the border on my gift was a little too small to place dimensional tape so the plastic card holder sealed with the Fuse was perfect! The "for you" stamp used is on the Stamp of the month set, which for the month of August you can purchase for $5 with a $50 purchase! Love this stamp set because it has so many much needed sentiments for cards! The bases for the stamps in both cards are also images on the Artistry Cart. The cup below is also on the new ARTISTRY cart! I created the heat band to wrap the card! by welding the two pieces together and gluing on the right!  Love this cartridge and paper!! I got the inspiration for the cup from! She has a link to the base card designed in DS! I created the wrap(? is that what its called?! hehe) by welding the 2 pieces together with a little strip down the middle to increase the size so I could glue the end together to wrap around the cup!

The ARTISTRY collection includes:
1 – Cartridge (700 images: Shapes, Layers, Banners, Borders, Backgrounds, and Font)
3 – My Acrylix® D-size Stamp Sets
1 – Enchantment Cardstock Combo Pack

There will be a full release of the BIG Annual catalog on September 1st.

You'll find all of the Cricut cartridges here! I used the newest here, Cricut Artistry. Not to be confused with Artiste! This is a brand NEW cartridge!It comes with 3 stamp sets and a set of the new paper colors! You can also purchase the  DIGITAL version  of the cartridge, but, unfortunately, you will have to wait for the arrival of your package that will come with a download code.

OH! More coffee fun! That's what I'm talking about! :)

I really love the shaker card. So darn cute!

Ellen Jarvis said...

Hi Chris ... love your coffee cup and "heat wrap". I call that a "hand saver" but same/same. Did you use a crimper to make the heat wrap sort of corrugated looking? Very clever, no matter. Love it!

Ellen, a crimper would have been great, had I thought of it! lol, its embossed with Cricut embossing folder! hand saver sounds better!

Teresita Arvelo said...
