New Artistry Cartridge in the House!

Ok, I've been chomping at the bit (wow, what a great expression to use here at ScrappyHorses!) to use the new Artristry Cartridge.  It came quickly, but I had some other wonderful things to occupy my time.  So, I needed to wait until yesterday to play with this delightful collection!

There are images for everyone on this cartridge including:  icons, shapes, layers, banners, backgrounds and a fun alphabet!  It seems everyone is so excited about the layering possibilities; I agree, they are really cute.  However, I think I'm most impressed by the backgrounds!  They are incredible and I can't wait to investigate those further.  I will also add, the icons are just too much fun!  Every cut on this layout is from Artristry.  I did weld the little doggie tag from two different shapes.

Speaking of doggies, this sweet girl is my "grand-pup" who was brought into the family back in February!  She was adopted from a shelter and has truly made herself at home wherever she goes!  She is the epitome of 'man's best friend'!

Here's the material list:

Cartridges:  CTMH Artistry!  NEW
CTMH Stamps:  Perfect Picture and Distressed        Background
CTMH Inks:  Chocolate, Lagoon, Slate, Sorbet, Topiary, Gypsy, Autumn Terra Cotta
CTMH Cardstocks:  Goldrush, Sorbet, White Daisy, Sweet Leaf, Lagoon, Gypsy, Chalk It Up, and Zoe

Other:  Embossing powder, VersaMark ink, homemade stencil (paw prints), Finnabair White Crackle Texture Paste, Baker's Twine, Enamel Aqua Dots, Studio G Clear Gltter Glue

This sweet little pup is off to visit:

Sketches in Thyme:  Sketch to the left (I rotated it to fit my pics)
Bitten by the Bug 2:  Celebrate Friendship (I was inspired by Melanie's cat card--hey, the dog had to be represented, too!)  ;)
