September Joyful Stars Blog hop

Welcome to the monthly Joyful Stars blog hop.  This is a blog hop where you can go from one site to another.  You will get to see some NEW products from our seasonal Sept/Oct catalog and from the Annual Core catalog.  You can get both from FREE just by placing an order with your consultant.  So look for the highlighted name at the bottom of the post and click on it.



This month was hard to choose because we have soooooo many new products to play with.  I would like to show you a stamp set called Floral Detail and Background.  This looks good embossed in silver or gold to make an anniversary card.  It also has 4 M size stamps that compliment this stamp.
They fit in the circle where I have the numbers.  Stamping this in black and coloring in the flowers looks really good, also. (See last photo)  I like the 5 stamps that come with this set to use as accents.

These cards were made using Party time paper and Wishing you Everything stamp set.  The best thing about this paper collection is you can make your card in pink or blue, just by flipping the paper.

May Blog hop

Welcome to May Joyful Stars Blog Hop!

Happy Mother's Day!

This month we have a new catalog to share with you and that means new stamps and accessories.  

To do the hop, simply look for the Highlighted name at the bottom of each post and keep hopping until you get back here.  

I wanted to share with you my favorites. First up is the Hello Lady bug B1703 on page 44 of the 
May - June catalog. To cut the Ladybug you can get the Ladybug Shaker Window Thin Cuts Z3710. 
I made mine without the shaker. The wings are using the Blue skies cardstock on page 42.
Notice the shine, the paper has a glossy UV coated pattern.  The dots were stamped and colored with the black shimmer brush.  







Second card was made with the Pinwheel Thin cuts CC5204. I used a coffee stirrer for the stem. I used the mix-in paper from last catalog and the diamond paper from Stitched Together X7257S.

The words are from the stamp of the month Time to Celebrate S2005




This pin wheel is using paper from Stitched Together.  and the Stamp of the month.  



This card was made for my dear mother using another favorite A Million Little Things D1925.
I also used May Stamp of the month.  


Here is a close up of the layered flower.  
Hope everyone has a great mother's day!
