February Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars February Blog Hop. I'm so glad you are able to join us today.  This is a circular hop so you can start anywhere and you will know you are finished when you arrive back at the first blog.  If you arrived from Debi's Blog, then you are on the right track.  You can find a complete list of participants HERE on Joyce's Blog.  I am loving all the new products in the Seasonal Expressions Idea Book.  Today, I have a slider pull-up card made using  Hello Lovely Paper Packet.  The colors are soft and lovely and are great for just about any occasion. 
The watering can is on page 44 of the Flower Market booklet and is cut in Whisper Cardstock.  I used the waterbrush and the Whisper and Slate Inks to add some details and dimension to the can.  The bunch of flowers was cut from one of the Picture My Life cards included in the paper packet. 
When you pull the tab, the watering can stands up to reveal the sentiment!  The "Thinking of You" sentiment is from the Dreamin' Big Cardmaking Bundle.  The "Get Well Soon" is from A1189 Short and Sweet Sentiments.  Here is a side view:
There is also one of the "Sugar Rush Dots" in the center of the large rose.  This cute card is sure to cheer up a sick friend.

Sympathy Card using Flower Market

Here is an elegant sympathy card.  I have seen a so many samples of white on white cards on Pinterest, especially seasonal cards using snowflakes.  I decided to try it but used flowers instead of snowflakes. 
I cut each image twice and adhered them together to create more dimension.  Here is a close up of the flower.  You can see the thickness and the beautiful shimmer was created by using the new exclusive Shimmer Pen. 
The flower is Flower 1 on page 33 of the booklet and the stem and leaf is Flower 2.  The card is 5 x 7.

Products used:
Z3285 Cricut Flower Market Cartridge
Z2841 Glacier Ink
X5770 Glacier Cardstock
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
Z3293 Clear Shimmer Brush 
Stamp is a retired CTMH set

Joyful Stars January Blog Hop

 Happy New Year!  Hello and welcome to the Joyful Stars monthly blog hop. If you have come from Debi's Blog, you are on the right track.  It is a circular hop so you can start anywhere and you will know you are finished when you arrive back at the first blog.  You can find a complete list of participants on Joyce's Blog if you get lost along the way. This month I have some cards using the brand new Workshops Your Way Cardmaking Kit (G1124) called Here For You.  I just love the sentiments and the beautiful delicate flowers.  The kit contains all the supplies you need to create 12 cards. The first two cards shown here, were made following the instructions and using the exclusive stamp set in the kit.

For the next two cards, I used the patterns from the kit, but used another new stamp set C1677 Dreamin' Big and the Thin Cuts that go with them.

 These sentiments are very versatile.  Now I have a stash of cards all finished and ready to mail whenever I need them!
You can see the kit online HERE or in the new Seasonal Expressions mini Idea Book available now.

Now it is time to hop on over to  Joyce's Blog to see her project.
