Artistry ~ NEW Cricut Cartridge!

Artistry is the name of the newest exclusive Cricut cartridge released by Close To My Heart.  This cartridge has 700 fabulous images, including a font, multiple icons, basic shapes, layers, banners, and backgrounds.  You can see all of the images at the bottom of this post.     

If you arrived here from Jeanie's Clearly Cards blog, you are hopping through our circle of Close To My Heart consultants sharing their projects using the new Artistry cartridge.  

There are several cute animals included with the Icons on the Artistry cartridge.  For this card, the ladybug was cut in two different sizes in Black and Poppy cardstock.  For this "clean & simple" card, a strip of Black Shimmer Trim was placed for their ground, and then the two ladybugs are simply walking along.  Poppy is one of the brand-new colors being introduced by CTMH.  Beginning in September, you will be able to purchase both cardstock and an ink pad in Poppy. However, when you purchase the Artistry cartridge, it includes a package of Enchantment cardstock which contains all seven new colors being introduced for Fall.   Three stamp sets are also included with the Artistry Collection, and the 'smile' is from the Picture Perfect set.
