Welcome to our monthly hop!

We're excited to share our creativity with you using PRODUCTS
from Close To My Heart!!

Come on in and see what BEAUTIFUL projects my crafty friends have creating using the AMAZING products from Close To My Heart!!

 This blog hop is easy to do…just click on the link at the end of the post to go to the next creation!!  If you get lost along the way, CLICK HERE to see the list of this month’s hoppers! 

If you have arrived from Joyce Houck's blog you are right on track.

My card today introduces a few of our BEAUTIFUL items that we currently carry at Close To My Heart....take a look!  

To create my card, I used these 3 MAIN ingredients. :) 
"Feels Like Home" paper suite
 the Budding Peony metal die & stamp bundle
 AND the beautiful Sugarplum shimmer brush. 
I ADORE the colors in this paper suite! 

Here is a look at the "Feels Like Home" paper collection.....isn't it BEAUTIFUL??

The "Budding Peony" stamp/thin cut bundle is a favorite of mine, and is one I use often - even though it was only released on January 1st. :)  I ADORE this new set!!

I used out Sugarplum colored Shimmer Brush to completely COLOR IN the flower on this card!!

For the leaves, I picked up our waterbrush, and my fern ink pad. By squeezing your ink pad together BEFORE opening it,  you allow the ink to transfer to the inside lid of your ink pad container.  
Ta-da!!!  You now have a paint palette and can "paint" fern green with your watercolor brush! 

For my finishing touches, I used a small piece of black & gold ribbon & a few sprinkles of gold glitter gems. 

That's all for today....thanks for stopping by, and I hope you were inspired to go CREATE something on your own! :) 

Now it’s time to Hop on over to Debi's Blog and see what BEAUTIFUL, crafty item she has to share with us today! :) 

Happy Hopping and we’ll see you on the 9th next month, when the Joyful Stars team members will be sharing more artwork using Close To My Heart products!    

Blessings to you for BEAUTIFUL day!!!
