Welcome to this month’s Control Freaks Blog Tour Featuring our Convention swaps! I had the best time at Convention and it was amazing to see everyone in person for the swap!! If you are following the tour you have arrived here from the clever Mary Brown’s blog, now those were some great cards and that cute memo pad, WOW! This month I have two fun cards for you so let’s get to them!
My first card starts off with a base of Basic Black Card Stock. For the background I used the Zig Zag Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on a piece of Real Red. A strip of Flashback Designer Series Paper goes down the left side. I used the On Film Framelits to cut out a piece of Pool Party and adhered a piece of Vellum to the back side. The greeting is from the Be the Star Stamp Set and is stamped in Basic Black and punched out with the What’s Up Punch. Finally I stamped the Snapshot Stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black on Smoky Slate and used my Paper Snips to cut it out. A few Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. A fun bright card that would make a great birthday or just because card for anyone!
My second card uses the fun Flower Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Flower Fair Framelits. Isn’t it great when you have a matching Stamp Set and Framelits?! I started my card off with a base of Bermuda Bay Card Stock and for the background I used a piece of Pistachio Pudding that I embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Next up is a piece of the Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper. The flower is stamped in Tangelo Twist and cut out with the Framelits, a Stampin’ Dimensional holds it in place. The greeting is also from the Flower Fair Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Crushed Curry. I used the Banner Punch to create my flag on the right. I love the fun colors in the Confetti Celebration DSP and like I said the Stamp Set and Framelits together make everything better!
So, what did you think of my Control Freaks Convention 2014 Swaps?! I hope that you enjoyed them! Now you are off to see what the clever Heidi Boos has in store for you! Enjoy the rest of the tour and thanks for stopping by! 🙂
