DIE-NAMIC Cards for March Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars March Blog Hop.  Thanks for joining us today. If you have come from Joyce's Blog then you are on the right track.  It is a circular hop so technically, you can start anywhere.  You will know you have seen all the blogs when you arrive back at your first stop.  You can also find a complete list of participants on Joyce's Blog.

This month Close To My Heart is has a sale on our exclusive Thin Cut dies.  They are 25% off during the month of March.   You can see all the items on sale HERE.

Here are a few cards using our fabulous dies for inspiration.  The first two use the Stargazer Paper Pack.    The first card uses the  Block Alphabet Thin Cut Dies. We also have a coordinating set of Block Numbers.  Since I do not have the numbers dies set YET, I used the Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut the number two.  The bold, bright colors of the Stargazer paper make it great for masculine cards too.  For inspiration, I used the new Make It From Your Heart Volume 4 which features 24 new card patterns.  This card is pattern 22 rotated 90 degrees. 
This card uses the Punny Pals stamp set and Punny Pals Thin Cuts.  This set was made to benefit Operation Smile, a non-profit group that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates for children around the world.  CTMH will donate $7 for every Punny Pals Stamp Set purchased.  The card was based on pattern #3 in the new Make It From Your Heart Volume 4 card making guide.

The next two cards were made using the Gimme Some Sugar Paper Pack.
These cards were based on pattern #23 in the Make It From Your Heart Volume 4 card pattern book.  The first one is made exactly as pictured in the pattern book.  The second one uses the same pattern but it was rotated 90 degrees to give it a different look.  The Scallop Border Thin Cut Die was used on both cards

Hope you enjoy hopping with us.  /now it is time for you to hop on over to Krista's Blog to see what she has created for you.
