May blog hop

Welcome to the May Joyful Stars blog hop.  We just released a NEW Seasonal Expressions and we would like to share some new products and some products from our annual catalog.  So hop from one blog to the next, just look for the link at the bottom of each post and click on it.  

This month I would like to share with you  Carnival fun and carnival fun thin cuts.  This cute set can be found on page 21 of Seasonal Expressions May-August.  This set would make great party invitations or just a fun birthday card.  I made this card with an opening flap.  So you would make a card base and cut another piece 2 1/2" x 6".  I scored the 6" length  1/2" from the end.  That 1/2" pc gets glued onto the back or behind the striped pc of background texture paper.  All the shapes are cut with the thin cuts and stamped with colors you desire.  Liquid glass is fun to use on the snow cone, pretzel, ice cream and the mustard of the corndog.

3-D foam tape can be used to pop some of the shapes.  I hope this gets your imagination racing with all the possibilities.

Now hop over the Marie's blog and see what she has been stamping.
