It's an EXCITING time, here at Close To My Heart.  May 1st was the release of our NEWEST papercrafting goodies & we have so many BEAUTIFUL products to play with! 

Today, I wanted to share the card I created for my make n take at this past weeks Open House event. 

Take a look...

It was so hard to choose WHAT new products to use & create with ...but that True Love paper pack drew me in, and I started creating!

Here is a look at this BEAUTY of this particular paper pack!!

The color combo just makes you say "Wow!" 

I got my card design, from last season's catalog.  Take a look at the photo below...does the card design on the middle card look familiar at all??

I used a lot of FUN embellishments...Gold Glitter Gem, NEW Gold Embellishing thread...but look at the  middle of the card, behind the Pinwheel?? Do you see those light pink dots?
(yes...that's clear shimmer brush you see on 4 of the pinwheels ;) ) 

THAT a FABULOUS New stamp set named "Timeless Textures"!  I have a feeling I'll be using this stamp set quite often! 

Another NEW product I "had" to include in this card design is our Lace Border Thin Cut (metal die). 
LOOK at the detail on that beautiful border!! most likely noticed the BEAUTIFUL, dry embossed Eggplant colored cardstock? got it ;) ....that's our NEW 5x7 Floral Garden embossing folder.  I told you there were so MANY Beautiful products!! :) 

The new stamp set that I used for the pinwheel - comes from our Craft On-cardmaking stamp.  I chose to purchase the Stamp/Thin cut bundle, so my metal dies help me to create my creations in a jiffy! :) 

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 Marie'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!!!

  1. Love your card - all the new elements look fabulous together.

  2. I love this so much! And I think that adding the embellishing thread adds an illusion of movement that suits the pinwheel!


Thanks for taking time to make a comment!
