Joyful Stars Team Blog Hop: You’re Amazing

Welcome to Joyful Stars Team Blog Hop May 2014!


This month I am joining Joyful Stars Team, a Close To My Heart Consultants Blog Hop. Super excited to do this hop with a group of talented and creative ladies! You should be arrived from Betty Locco‘s blog but if you are here first, you can visit Joyce Houck‘s blog where this hop starts to see what these ladies have created 🙂

And I would love to share with you a CAS card I made for my husband’s grandma:

Joyful Stars Team Blog Hop: You're Amazing #card #bloghop #ctmh #closetomyheart #mothersday #handmadecards #diy #papercrafting

This card is very simple to make. I made the ruffle border using Honey Triangle Washi Tape and added 2 strips of Chocolate Woodgrain Washi Tape on a white card.


Then I stamped the sentiment from Ivy Lane WOTG Card Kit (G1079) using Chocolate Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. I stamped the little flower with Hollyhock Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad then I added on the sentiment using 3-D Foam Tape and decorated it with Sparkles Clear Assortment.

From the same stamp set, I picked the pattern scallop stamp and stamped it using Honey Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad on a piece of White Daisy cardstock, then I fussy cut it. I added one of the Flamingo Dots in the center of the flower and added it on the card using 3-D Foam Tape.
