Kaleidoscope Birthday Card

As soon as I saw C1647 - A Bunch of Love stamp set and coordinating Thin Cuts in the Seasonal Expressions 2, I went online and ordered it immediately.  I just love the versatility of these stamps.  As soon as they arrived, I stamped the flower bunch dozens of times  on White Daisy cardstock and cut them with the thin cuts.  They can coordinate with any paper, just by changing the color of the flowers.  And they can be used for just about any occasion, simply by changing the sentiment. 
The card is Pear cardstock and Kaleidoscope Background and Texture Paper.  I used Shin Han markers to color the flowers.  The papers are only available until the end of July and the stamps and thin cuts will retire on August 31.

June Joyful Stars Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Joyful Stars June Blog Hop.  Thank you for joining us today.  If you have come from Debi's Blog then you are on the right track.  It is a circular hop, so you can start at any blog and click through until you get back to the first blog. Then you will know you have seen all the posts.  You can find a list of all the participants on Joyce's Blog.
My project uses images from the soon to be discontinued Artiste Cricut cartridge.  Three of the CTMH exclusive Cricut Cartridges - Art Philosophy, Artiste and Artfully Sent, will no longer be available after July 31.  They are only available "While Supplies Last" so be sure to contact your consultant to order yours if you don't already own them.
My project this month is a favor for a bridal shower or possibly for a "dress up" party.  This would make a great favor for a "princess party" too.  It uses the Artiste cartridge for the dress, box, rolled rose and bow.  This cartridge is very versatile and has 700 images and is perfect for making all kinds of boxes, bags and favors for any event.  It also contains tons of images you can use on cards and scrapbook pages.   I originally saw this on Pinterest a long time ago, but since I am currently locked out of my Pinterest account, I can't give credit to the original stamper.

 The dress is Accent 2 on page 41 at 6" on relative size.  The dress was embossed using the Confetti Embossing Folder.  Part of the top of the dress and a waistband were cut using White Glitter Paper.  The "box" in the back to hold the treats is 3-D Object on page 80 cut at 1 1/2".  Here is the back of the favor that shows the box with the treat bag.
Here is another version using the Kaleidoscope Background and Texture Paper. 

The bow at the waist is found on page 55 of the Artiste booklet.  It is cut in three pieces: Accent 2 and Shift and Accent 3 all cut at 1/2".
Products used in this project:
Z3170 Artiste Exclusive CTMH Cricut Cartridge
Z3118 Confetti Embossing Folder
X7202B Kaleidoscope Background and Texture Paper
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
Z3076 Gold Glitter Paper (I used the white glitter paper)
String of pearls is from my stash

I hope you have enjoyed our blog hop this month and be sure to stop back again next month on July 10th.  Now it is time to hop to Krista's Blog to see her wonderful creation this month.
