This month’s stamp of the month is wonderful!  If you take a bit to explore this month’s blog hop you will see that this stamp set can be used in numerous ways.  It’s great for scrapbooking and card making!

And now my project!

Aug SOTM Baroque Borders Artiste CTMH Cricut Cartridge by CraftyLalia

I used the new Artiste Cricut Cartridge to cut the gable box and the tags in Kraft Cardstock & Colonial White. The box was stamped with the Versamark Watermark ink and embossed with Clear Detail Embossing Powder.  I then inked over the box with the brand new new Ruby exclusive inks using our yellow sponge.  The rosette on the tag was also lightly sponged with the Ruby Ink.  The “thanks” came from the the stamp set that came with the Artiste Cartridge.  I used a sponge dauber to only ink the sentiment, leaving conversation bubble un-inked.  This was done in our brand new Saddle brown ink.  As was the ready color ribbon used to tie the tag to the box.
