Welcome to our March Art Philosophy/Artiste Blog Hop! As you know, both the Artiste and the Art Philosophy cartridges are available exclusively through a Close to My Heart consultant. If you don't already have a Consultant that you are currently working with, please contact one the Consultants in our hop with any questions you have!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create. If you came from Michelle's My Creations with Michelle, then you are in the right place!

Our challenge this month features not only one of these amazing cartridges but also a "BINGO" card!

Here is the BINGO card that our Consultants were given:

The Consultants were told they could make anything they wanted using the Artiste OR Art Philosophy cartridge AND you work off the BINGO card posted above. Basically, you make a "BINGO" by going across, down, or diagonally and you have to use everything in that bingo line.


For this BINGO card project, I selected Flower, 3D and Bling.

I used Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut  cartridge for all cuts for this BINGO project.  I used the Daisy flower cut for the light colored flowers and sized them at 2.5" and 2".  I then selected a 5 pedal flower (Posy) and cut 3 shapes (bottom) at 2.70", 2 at 2.50" and 1 at 2.10".  The leaves were cut at 2.5".  For the 3D element, I used a "pillow box" cut at 4.90".  All cuts fit on one 12 x 12 Cricut mat with spare room for other small cuts if needed.

I used B& T papers and assortment of cardstock in the Claire Workshop on the Go ($29.95) kit, with tons left over!  You can also puchase just the Claire paper pack for $9.95.

For my bling, I used Pink Glitter Gems ($3.95).

Your next stop on our "BINGO" hop is Stephanie's The Quilted Scrapper.
