This adorable card was made by Close To My Heart's Art Department and features a Hostess Rewards Stamp. Normally the ONLY way to get this stamp is to host a qualifying gathering, but this month there is another way to earn this stamp!

During the month of July, when you purchase $25 in current, retail priced stamps, you qualify to receive either the July Stamp of the Month FREE or any one of the Hostess Rewards stamp sets featured in Annual Inspirations 2014–2015 or Seasonal Expressions 2 for only $5!

Cricut Make It Now Card


I was looking through the Make It Now Projects in Cricut Design Space and saw stunning cards using Anna Griffin content. So I bought the digital cartridges for Anna's Flourish Cards and Embellishments and Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments and made this card.

Cardstock and Stamped Sentiment is from Close To My Heart
Pattern Paper is from Stampin Up



Recently I saw videos on You Tube from Jennifer McGuire talking about using a laminator to apply foil to stamped images and die cuts. I had foil sheets in my stash and decided to try it out. I stamped the image in Verasmark and embossed with clear detail embossing powder,  I put the foil over that and ran it through my laminator three times. I'm sure I'll be playing around with this technique again!

Joyful Stars June 2015 Blog Hop


Welcome to the Joyful Stars June Blog Hop! Several consultants are sharing their creations using current Close To My Heart products. If you've come here from Joyce's blog, then you're on the right track. If you just happened upon my blog, that's fine, just continue from here and when you get back to me, you know you've seen them all.

My project this month may look familiar to Close to My Heart Consultants. It was a project using our Hip Pic Album that the CTMH Art Department designed for consultants to make at a regional event. I didn't have time to complete the mini album there. Now it is finished and ready for Summer 2015!









Supplies:
Hip Pic Album
Hello Summer Stamp Set
Seaside Paper
My Crush™ Best Day Ever Assortment
Gold Polka-Dot Washi Tape
Flamingo Dots



Thanks for hopping along this month. Your next stop on the Joyful Stars blog hop is Betty's blog. Just in case you get lost or experience a technical difficulty, you might want to keep Joyce's blog open in a separate tab, as she has a full list of participants.
