Autumn with Art Philosophy

Welcome to our Autumn Art Philosophy Blog Hop!  Each month we are showcasing our amazing Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge which can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant.

It's the time of year where leaves are changing colors, temperatures are dropping, the days are shorter, and the holidays are quickly approaching. This month we will be featuring projects with an Autumn theme made using the Art  Philosophy Cricut cartridge!  

If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning at Lucy's blog - Love 2 Create . If you came here from Priscilla's blog - Priscilla's Paperie, then you're in the right place!

My Project is a Thanksgiving Turkey with Treat Cup

I used multiple shapes on the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  I also used the Cricut Craft Room to weld the items together for this project.  Can you guess what images are being used before you look below????

Card is 6 x 6 bamboo card stock 
Head image is  <Oval3>  page 42-  shortened and welded to neck
Neck image is <Rctngle1>  page 44- thinned out, stretched and welded to head and belly
Belly image is <circle1>  page 21- welded to neck

The feather images are <Petal 1> page 65 - cut with ruby red, honey and kraft card stock
The legs are the capital Y page 36- stretched and turned upside down, ruby red
The eyes are images - <Oval1> page 22 white, <Circle1> black, honey
The beak is image <Shape11> page 28 - narrowed and cut in half
The snood is the comma page 26 - stretched and turned upside down, ruby red

The font letters are all lowercase and welded together.  You can request the CCR file in the comment section, please be sure to leave your email so that I can send it to you!
