CTMH--Stamp of the Month - Baroque Borders - Artiste in August

Welcome to the DOUBLE BLOG HOP!!!

Today is the FIRST day of the Artiste in August Blog Hop!!  You should be arriving from Amy's BlogYour next stop will be PAMELA'S BLOG. 

It is also the Stamp of the Month blog hop time!  The stamp of the month for August is Baroque Borders. If you have come here from Melinda's blog you are on the right path.  Your next stop will be SUSAN'S BLOG. 

Today I have created the Magazine File card holder found on page 47 in the Artiste handbook (assembly instructions are on page 18). The handbook says to cut the images at 6", so that's what I did.  I cut the bottom box portion in Sorbet cardstock.  Before cutting the outer part, I stamped the Smoothie Cardstock with the Baroque Border stamp set.  I added some sparkles for some bling, and Color Ready Seam Binding for an accent.  

This box will hold several cards, and even envelopes too!

This will be a project for my All You Can Create Card Class in August- I know the ladies will be super excited about this one :)

The Baroque Borders Stamp set is available on my website August 1st- 31st.  It is just $5 with a $50 purchase.   SHOP HERE!!

Also available to order today is the fabulous Cricut Artiste Collection!!!  This cricut cartridge has 698 ALL NEW images, and the bundle comes with 3 stamp sets and 3 chipboard dimensional elements sheets.

Check out 2 projects I've already created with Artiste:

This is a Diaper Card that I made for my Brother and Sister in law who just found out they're having a girl :)  The Diaper shape was cut at 4" and the scallop oval at 3.5", It's a girl was cut at 3".  I used a new paper kit- Clementine!  

This one is a flower box, also cut at 4".  The cool thing is if you cut the box and 4" and the flower at 4" it fits perfectly together :) I also used Clementine for this project!
