January 2019 Blog hop

Welcome to the 2019 Joyful Stars Blog Hop

The first hop of the year!!!Welcome 2019    Just look for the highlighted name at the bottom of this post and click on it, you will be taken to the next creative, talented artist in this group.  Follow the blogs until you get back to where you started and enjoy. 

  I would like to share with you a waterfall card that I made using the  Heart Happy special paper. To see more or this special paper, stamp and compliments look up at the top of my blog or go to CTMH website.
I used the stickers for this card CC2192  $3.95  Made this so easy.   With plenty of stickers left for other projects.
The paper is great for any Valentine project, such as scrapbooking, cards, treat boxes, tags,etc.

I used the small stitched heart for the bottom heart to pull the card open.

This special is available until Feb 28 or until supplies last.   It also comes in kits, save money when you buy everything together. You can get the kit with a matching stamp set and paper, stickers and much more. CC2196

Now it's time to hop over to Andrea's blog to see what she has created.  ( If you need the directions for the card, see below. )

This is easy to make .... start out with a card base of 2 layers  4x 5/14  3 3/4 x 5
Cut a strip 2 x 9   and score it  at 2, 2 1/2, 3 1/4, 4"
Cut a strip that is 3/4" x 4 1/4 and top that with a 1/2" pc or Shimmer trim or paper.
Place the strip about 1" from the bottom, just fasten it on either side, I like to staple it.  Don't glue the middle.
Cut 4 pcs of white cs 1 3/4" square.  Place the first square on the 2" square and glue.  place the next square on the 1/2" scored section, over top of the 2"square.  Continue until all four sqaures are in place.
Place the long section of the scored strip under the 3/4" strip. Glue the bottom of the 2" square to the 3/4" strip. That is the only thing that holds the waterfall strip in place.  Glue the heart at the bottom to help pull the strip down.
