Hello there and welcome to this month’s Control Freaks Blog Tour! The theme for this month’s tour is Spring! Who couldn’t use some Spring! I’m over the Winter and have been for quite some time! We are supposed to get snow today too. Will it ever end?! LOL! If you are following along with the tour then you have arrived here from the very clever Debbie Henderson’s blog, she had some great projects didn’t she?! I have two cards for you this time around so lets get right to them!
My first card definitely has real Spring feel to it! The card starts off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. My background is a piece of Soft Sky and I stamped the greeting from the Flower Fair Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versa-Mark and heat embossed it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. All of the flowers are from the same set and are stamped in So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Blushing Bride, Strawberry Slush, Pear Pizzaz and Always Artichoke. I used the coordinating Flower Patch Framelits to cut out all of the stamped images. Some are adhered to the card with SNAIL and others with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered a sequin in the middle of each one. The butterfly is a piece of Calypso Coral that I cut out with the Butterfly Thinlits. I covered the entire die cut with Versa-Mark and then heat embossed it multiple time with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder. A piece of Stampin’ Dimensional holds it to the card. I love all of the colors mixed together and I just can’t get enough of the clear embossed die cuts, I think they are so cool!
The second card that I have for you today is another card with a spring feel but could be used for so many different occasions. It was also pretty easy to make using one of the card from the Project Life Everyday Adventure Card Kit! The base for this card is also Whisper White Card Stock. I adhered a piece of Stacked with Love Designer Washi Tape down the left side and part of one of the cards from the Everyday Adventure Card Kit down the right side. In the middle os a panel of Bermuda Bay that is adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is another card from the kit and I used one of the dies form the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit to cut out the holes on the right side. A piece of Silver Thread is threaded through the holes with some “Vintage” Frosted Sequins and silver seed beads randomly added. The card is then adhered to the card with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love that saying and the card and I’m always looking for ways to use the Project Life cards since I’m not a big scrapbooker!
I hope that you enjoyed my cards for this month’s Control Freaks Blog Tour! Thank you very much for stopping by! Now to continue on with the tour I’ll send you off to my very talented friend Wendy Weixler! Have a wonderful day everyone! 🙂
