Freaky Monthly Challenge!

Posted on

A very good Sunday Morning to you all. I spent most of the day catching up on some creativity, which is definitely my favorite way to spend a Saturday! I have some amazing news to share with you all. About a month ago I got a very exciting email Lisa, her blog is Get Your Stamp On! The email asked me if I would like to become a member of The Control Freaks!! I couldn’t believe it! WOW! To be asked to join such an amazingly talented group was beyond exciting. I of course accepted and today I am posting my first card for the Freaks. They have a Freaky Monthly Challenge amongst the members and here is my card for August. The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I used a piece of the new Core’dinations Card Stock in Early Espresso and embossed it with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The fun part is when you use the new Stampin’ Sanding System to sand the card stock and reveal the lighter inside layer. A little rub with the Core’dinations Dust Buddy and I adhered it to the card with SNAIL. The next layer is a piece of World Spectacular Designer Series Paper backed with a piece of Very Vanilla. The layer on top of that is another piece backed with some more Very Vanilla. I used the ticket stamp from the You’re Amazing Stamp Set and stamped them in Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler and Island Indigo. The Ticket Duo Builder punch is used to punch them all out and I used some 2-Way Glue to adhere them to the DSP. Another piece of World Spectacular DSP is mounted to the ticket layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The ballon image is also from the You’re Amazing Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo and cut out with my Paper Snips. The greeting is from the Blue Ribbon Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso and also cut out with Paper Snips. They are both mounted to the card with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. I’m really happy with the card and hope that the Freaks and you enjoy it. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

    • Thanks Anne Marie! I love the little tickets. I need to get another pair of snips, mine are getting a bit dull. I had a crafty weekend so it was great! I hope you are feeling better. 🙂
