Feels Like Home WYW Cards for the Joyful Stars January Blog Hop

 Happy New Year!  Thank you for joining us today.  If you have come from Michelle's Blog, then you are on the right track.  You can find a list of participants on Joyce Houck's Blog.   Close To My Heart has a brand new Idea Book!  Click on the link if you would like to look through the new book.  With every paper pack in the book, you will find both a Scrapbooking Workshop Your Way and a Cardmaking Workshop Your Way.  Today, I am using the G1176 Feels Like Home Cardmaking Workshop Your Way called Love at First Sight. Our card workshops include all of the components (except for inks and glue) you need to make 12 beautiful cards, and include an exclusive stamp set.  These are the cards from the kit.

The first card, is made following the instructions included in the kit.

This card would make a beautiful Valentine, Wedding or Anniversary card.

With the second card, I used the pieces from the kit and an additional stamp set - C1752 Know That I Care instead of the stamp set that comes with the kit.  I love the watercolor look of this stamp set.


Close To My Heart stamps are paper packs are so versatile!  The charcoal gray paper is the reverse side of the large floral paper on the first card. I used the large floral image in Know That I Care and stamped it on White Daisy Cardstock to make my own background paper to coordinate with the Feels Like Home Paper.

One of my favorite components of this kit Z4213 Silver Embellishing Thread.  It is so beautiful and delicate and adds just the right touch under the flower.  The card also uses one of our fabulous Decorative Border Dies Z4241 and the Stitched and Basic Oval Dies.  The stitched dies really add texture to the cards.

Now it is time to hop on over to Joyce Gough's Blog to see her creation for this month.
