Joyful Stars Blog Hop - True Love Get Well Soon

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 Betty's blog you are right on track.

I ADORE one of our current paper packs named True Love.  The colors are "mine" :) and I love the stripes included in these patterns too!  I will be sharing 2 cards with you today...To get started....let's take a look at these two cards below. 

I think one of the "hardest" things in any coming up with the pattern or design.  Well I have to say...."Never Fear.....Close to My Heart is here!" :)  

I LOVE the many ways CTMH makes this deciding faster, simpler, easier!!  
Today's cards, were card designs from a current Workshops Your Way (WYW) cardmaking kit. 

Take a look at the original card ...and how CTMH art department designed it...

I took CTMH's original design...and just turned my pieces around to create a different look! 
Do you see the similarities of their my 2 cards??? 

I love, LOVE our WYW kits!!! Another perk to these card kits (besides getting NEW card patterns) is the EXCLUSIVE stamp set that is included in this kit!!

Take a look at the "Thinking of You" (True Love) Cardmaking WYW kit....

This stamp set is a GREAT one, that will be used again and again.

Let's take a few close up looks. ;) 

I used the "splatter" re-inker technique to get the eggplant colored dots in the background. 
How FUN to create your own background...and get a different design each and every time!! :) 

The flowers were stamped in Eggplant ink, and then colored in with our Sugarplum Shimmer pretty!! 

I also decided to add gold Shimmer Trim to this card....I love a little sparkle & shine! 

Here's a close up look at the second card design....

I colored the flowers, the same way as I did for the first one.  
For that adorable tissue box...I stamped the tissue box onto the card base....and then stamped it again onto Sugarplum Cardstock (which is included in the kit) and cut out the box part.  

This tissue box, comes from the NEW "Get Well Soon" stamp set....How cute!! 

The Eggplant colored scalloped border, comes from the EXCLUSIVE stamp set included in the Workshops Your Way cardmaking kit!! 

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 Joyce'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!!!

Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - It's Your Day To Sparkle

If you have come here from my talented friend Gina's Blog, you are on the right track!!
This month, we will be featuring the EXCLUSIVE June SOTM stamp set called "It's Your Day To Sparkle".

This blog hop is a great big circle, so you can START HERE & work your way around to the many consultants on this “hop”! If you get lost along the way, you’ll find a complete list of PARTICIPATING CONSULTANTS by clicking HERE

Here is this months EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5 with EVERY $50 CTMH purchase in JUNE 2019. 

I LOVE that we have an EXCLUSIVE stamp set available at a DISCOUNT each & every month!!

What a FUN set, and I can't wait to see what my CTMH sisters create with this stamp set! :) I'm sure you saw some beautiful work already in this hop. :)    

Today, I chose to create this card design using this stamp set.
Let's check it out!   

I was inspired by a recent card I saw, where the vellum was used as part of the "opening " part of the card!! What fun!! I ADORE our Decorative Border Thin cuts that I used to cut our vellum...that stitched edging has so much appeal! 

Take a look at this BEAUTIFUL paper collection that I took my colors from.  This paper collection is called "True Love. I only used one sheet of patterned paper (the sapphire blue in the background) but used the cardstock colors in this collection to finish out the card! 

Let's take a look at some of the details of this card. 

There are SO MANY new Thin Cuts (metal dies) in our Seasonal Expression 2 (SE2) catalog, that was released on May 1st, and this is Lace Border is a popular one!! It is back ordered until the end of July!  I knew a lot of you already had this border & could use it to recreate this card if you chose.

I "fussy cut" out the flower out of the Cake!!  I love to use as many stamps as I can from one particular stamp set! :) 
I colored the flowers with TWO of our shimmer brushes....Mint & Sugarplum.  I wish you could see the shine on these flowers!! 

Another fun technique, I hadn't done in a while....creating my own background. I used the "make a wish" wording of the June SOTM, and created a subtle background for part of my "patterned" paper. :)  


I hope you are enjoying this blog hop & are getting LOTS of ideas for when you create with your OWN Stamp of the month stamp set. Happy Crafting to each of you!
