Welcome to the Joyful Stars Blog Hop for August

I created a card with the new Zoe paper and the August Stamp of the Month.

To create this I started with a White Daisy card base sized 5.5 x 4.25
Zoe paper coordinates with our Sorbet Card Stock.  The next layer is Sorbet and sized at 5.25 x 4.  I embossed a White Daisy piece sized 5 x 3.75 with our Dot Embossing folder.  The Sorbet band is sized at 5 x 1.5.   The Zoe (polka dot) is sized at 5 x 1.25.  The shapes on the August Stamp of the Month can be cut with our new Artistry Cricut Cartridge.  I highly recommend our new cartridge but these shapes could easily be cut by hand.

I think is always gives a card a little extra dimension to add our 3D tape behind the sentiment.

For your next hop please see what Krista has in store for us this month.

The August Stamp of the Month is fantastic

This is the August Stamp of The Month.  I love it because I will use it all year long!  As you can see the shapes have a red outline which means it can be cut with the Cricut.  With this stamp set it corresponds with the new Artistry Cricut Cartridge,
