Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are highlighting the Even Easier Technique as shown on page 91 in the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book!  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. 

We would love to see what you’ve created using this month’s technique, please visit our challenge blog at where you can share your project and be entered in a chance to win great prizes.  You will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way.  Let’s get started!

If you are coming from Melissa's Blog, you are on the right track! 

It is Even Easier when you are able to cut a shape using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and then stamping the coordinating image. Look for the red outlined stamp images in the Idea Book and when  you get your stamp in your hot little hands, you will see that the stamp carrier sheet shows the size to cut the coordinating Art Philosophy image.

The card I created is a Wishes recipe using Stella My Reflections pattern paper and our new baker's twine.

There are so many stamps with coordinating Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge images, here are a few more cards

  1. Love all of your offerings today, Shirley. Thanks for sharing your cards!

  2. I love all the cards! i almost used that same heart to make a card for the hop, but I had crafter's block with it. Glad to see it was used and on a beautiful card too.

  3. I just love this stamp set, it's on my list!

  4. Fantastic cards, really like the layouts on all of them and the colors.
