My dear friend named Star asked what I thought is a very good question -- is there a way to see which Close To My Heart stamps come in the Artiste Cricut Cartridge bundle, so she could determine if she needed or wanted to buy more stamps to get the most out of the Artiste cartridge?
Well, I searched, but didn't find one -- so I put this one together for her to see, and here I share it with you in case you too are thinking like an Artiste.
These are the ones that come with the Artiste cartridge and can't be purchased separately from the bundle. There are also MANY more CTMH stamps that are available to coordinate with either/both the Artiste and Art Philosophy cartridges. You can see the list of them here:
Also, when you peruse the CTMH Idea Books (a great source of inspiration!) or view CTMH stamps online, if you look for the stamped images that have the RED outline around them, that stamp shape has a coordinating cut on either Art Philosophy or Artiste.
Art Philosophy has become my GO-TO cartridge for just about everything; I suspect Artiste will be the same -- I'm getting it next. If you're interested in buying it too, you may want to time your purchase based on which (if either) of the Stamp of the Month you'd want to get, because you only need a minimum purchase of $50 to get the Stamp of the Month for just $5.
Right now (February), the Stamp of the Month is "Home Sweet Home" which is a nice set, but personally, I'm coveting the March Stamp of the Month which is a really pretty layered roses set called "Floral Happiness." With that, you stamp the background petals in a lighter color ink and the shadowing part in the darker color to make the roses look so pretty!
I'd be honored to be your Close To My Heart Independent Consultant. You may drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be in touch, or check out the new Idea Book by going to cardmonkey.ctmh.com. Thank you!
