Control Freaks June Blog Tour


Hello there and welcome to this month’s Control Freaks Blog Tour! The theme for this month’s tour is more goodies from the NEW 2015-2016 Annual Catalog! If you are following along with the tour then you have arrived here from the very clever Debbie Henderson’s blog, she always has great projects doesn’t she?! Today, I have a card and a matching tag using one of my favorite new stamp sets from the new Catalog!

Up first is the card that starts with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. I covered the front with a piece of Blackberry Bliss. To create the shaker I started by stamping the Definitely Dahlia Background Stamp in White Staz-On Ink on a piece of Window Sheet. The frame is a piece of Very Vanilla that I cut using my Stampin’ Trimmer. It’s adhered to the Window Sheet with SNAIL. My greeting is from the Butterfly Basics and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Mint Macaroon. I put some Foam Tape around the edges of the back of the frame, doubled up for a little extra height, and then filled it with some clear seed beads and clear sequins. The back and the front are adhered together and then to the card base. My large butterfly is from the Watercolor Wings Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Blackberry Bliss on Very Vanilla. The second layer is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the I cut it out with the Bold Butterfly Framelits and adhered it to the card with some more Foam Tape. I do love to make a shaker card and the addition of seed beads keeps everything moving!

For the coordinating tag the butterfly is created in the same way except it is stamped off once. I made the tag myself because I wanted it a little wider than the punch would accommodate. The Definitely Dahlia Background Stamp is stamped on the tag with Blackberry Bliss and the greeting is again heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I adhered the butterfly to the tag and tied a piece of Gold Baker’s Twine through the top. It hung on a bottle of MacMurray Ranch Pinot Grigio. A nice quick way to dress up a bottle of wine!

Another fun filled day! I haven’t gotten a lot of sleep these past few days and I was feeling it a little yesterday but I managed to perk up and make it through! Work was a little busy but I got a call from my dad that he had found a car that he wanted me to go and look at so I snuck out of work at 3:00. We went to the dealer and I test drove a 2004 Saab 9-3 Arc Convertible. I pick it up next Thursday! Yay! After that I picked up Taylor and Michael and we headed over to Scrap-A-Latte for card class. The Thursday class is a nice laid back one and we always have a good time. Michael took care of the social media posts and talked about his upcoming classes. It ended around 9:30 and I dropped him off and then came home and made today’s card. Like I said another fun filled day!

Here is a little group shot of us from class last night! A few people had to leave early but we’ll get them next time!

SAL Card Class 6-2015

No on to the post. The card that I made is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…

PPA 256

I kept very true to the sketch and also kept the card really simple. My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack. I used the Triple Banner Punch to flag the ends of two pieces of Basic Black and a piece of Tip Top Taupe. The black ones are adhered with SNAIL and the taupe one with SNAIL and Fun Foam. My greeting is from the Bravo! Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. I used a combination of SNAIL and Fun Foam to adhere it to the card. Finally, three clear sequins that Michael brought me from Brasil are adhere with Ranger Multi-Matte Medium next to the greeting. I really do like the simplicity of the card, we need them every so often right?! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you all a very happy Friday! 🙂
