Artfully Sent Halloween Swing Card

Hello Scrappy Friends,
It is getting close to Halloween and I wanted to share one more card with you.
This card was cut from the Artfully Sent Cartridge @ 7 inches.

This is a swing card I used paper from CTMH their new line
adventure Assortment . One side of the paper is like regular card stock and the other side is glossy.
I love this paper.

Take a look at the pumpkin this is what the reverse side
of the paper looks like.  The ribbon was from the
Paper Studio I got this from Hobby Lobby sales rack.
I Cut the insert with the word Boo from the same cartridge.
I added some ghost which came from the card on page 44 they were left over pieces from another card that I made.
This card can be found on page 43.
And a close up of the card I cut.
I like how this card came together.
Thanks for stopping by

First Cut

Hello Friends,

Today I am sharing the first cut with the new released Orchid Explorer from cricut.

I am so excited about the new addition to my family of cricuts.
This machine is amazing it cuts so smoothly, and it is quiet.
I love the new color of this machine because it has my favorite color as the trim( purple)
Yes I am a purple girl always has been.

I made one of the projects from the make it now series on Design Space. 
Cricut  provides all of the materials you will need to make this when you purchase the new machine.
Really all you need it a piece of card stock in what ever color you want to use as your cards base and then another piece slightly small for the inside front of the card, and your preferred pen color of choice.

I used the silver pen that came with the bundle for the tracing of Thank You,
but I have heard that several other pens and markers can be used. I have not tried any other brands out yet, but when I do I will let you know what works and what doesn't.

I can see this being a card that can be massed produced in different colors.
I hope you enjoyed my project.  If you are on the fence of getting this machine I would highly recommend it you will not be disappointed.

Artfully Sent Halloween Pop- Up Card

Hello Friends,
Today I want to share a card made using the Artfully Sent Cartridge for Halloween.  
The card was cut @ 5 inches just as the book suggest. I used paper from my stash, I forgot where
I purchased it.  I used a stamp set called Inkadinkado ( Creepy Crawly ) for the sentiment for the front of the card.  The spider was cut from the same cartridge @ 5 inches as well from page 43.  I added some purple jem's from CTMH to add a little bling.

This is the inside of the card I used just some purple and black paper form Colorbok.
I also used some blending  chalk  Bold Bright's from inkadinkado to
chalk the tree in brown and the tomb stone in white to add some contrast.
The sentiment on the inside is from MY Pink Stamper Spooky Puns set.

I backed the moon with a piece of orange paper form Colorbok.
I added some more of the purple jems from CTMH for  a little pop
on the inside.

Here is an image of the card I cut.

This image is of the house and tree which was cut @ 5 inches.
This is a great cartridge and this card came together very quickly.
I think the hardest part was picking out my papers.
