Word Balloon Cards with Artiste

I got the new Artiste Cricut cartridge last week, and I've been having lots of fun with it. I saw the idea for these cute, easy cards on another consultant's website (check it out here), and I knew I had to make them. With the Word Balloon stamp set that comes with the Artiste collection, these 3x3 cards are a snap to make!

I used some paper from the Stella paper pack, and the Tulip and Olive stamp pads. Contact me to get your hands on your own Artiste cartridge!

Mojo Monday #254

I liked this week's sketch so much that I made 2 different cards with it yesterday! And since it's so easy, I might make some more later this week just to use up some old paper. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

For my first card I turned the sketch sideways and used some of CTMH's new paper, La Belle Vie. I also used the new stamp set, Bonjour. For the accents in the corner, I used our new Black and Grey Sparkles. This is one of my favorite paper packs from the new idea book!

For my second card I kept the sketch horizontal and used some retired paper from the Dreamin' paper pack. I used the stamp set 4 My Friend and some of our Mocha Opaques for the accents. I also added some Chocolate embroidery floss and stamped the greeting directly on the card. I think it turned out well, and it was so simple!
