Hello everyone and welcome to this month’s Control Freaks Blog Tour featuring products from the 2014 Sale-A-Bration Catalog and Love! If you are following the tour you have arrived here from the talented Mary Brown’s blog. I’m excited to share my two cards with you, both of them contain some love so let’s get to them!
My first card uses some neat Sale-A-Bration goodies and is simple but fun! The base of the card is Strawberry Slush Card Stock and my background is a piece of Blushing Bride. I stamped the greeting from the Love You to the Moon Stamp Set in Strawberry Slush on the background and again on a piece of Whisper White. The heart is then cut out using the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies and adhered over the other greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My banners are from the Banner Blast Stamp Set** and are stamped in Strawberry Slush and Blushing Bride. I used the Banner Punch** to punch them out and adhered them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A piece of White Bakers Twine goes behind the banners to give them something to hang from. I really like the greeting stamped in the popped up heart, it give the card a little something unexpected and the banners are just fun!
My second card starts with a piece of Crumb Cake Card Stock that I trimmed off the two top edges of to give it a tag look. A piece of paper from the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack makes the background with a Tea Lace Paper Doily on top of that. Along the bottom is a piece of Real Red that I trimmed with the Adorning Accents Edgelit Dies. I used the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies to cut out the hearts that are stamped in Coastal Cabana and Pool Party from the Hearts a Flutter Stamp Set. Stampin’ Dimensionals hold them to each other and the card. The greeting is from the Just Sayin” Stamp Set and are stamped in Coastal Cabana and Pool Party. Up top there is a piece of Real Red that I punched out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and a piece of twine from the Sweet Shop Accessory Pack** is tied in a bow. The Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack has some great colors in it and I do love that Just Sayin’ Stamp Set!
I hope that you enjoyed my two projects for the January Control Freaks Blog Tour featuring products from the 2014 Sale-A-Bration Catalog and some love thrown in for good measure! Now you are off to the talented Cindy Elam’s blog! Thanks for hopping by and enjoy your day! 🙂
