Control Freak June Blog Tour – Catalog Newness!

Posted on


I can’t believe it’s time for another Tour! This year is moving isn’t it?! Welcome to this month’s Control Freaks Blog Tour featuring products from the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalog! I have to say that I am loving the new Catalog, I like the layout and the products are all awesome! If you are following the tour you have arrived here from the talented Julie Davison’s blog, always great ideas and really fun stuff! This month I have two fun cards for you! The first one uses one of my favorite new sets and the second one has a great sentiment!

You all know that I have a little obsession with feathers (see blog header! LOL!) and when I saw the A Happy Hooray Stamp Set in the new catalog I knew I had to have it! My card starts off with a base of Melon Mambo Card Stock. I stamped the Dotty Angles Photopolymer stamp across the bottom of a piece of Whisper White in Elegant Eggplant. The Photopolymer Stamps are a great choice for backgrounds and 2-Step, nice and easy to line up! Next up, I flagged a piece of Gold Foil Sheet and adhered it to the card along with a thin sliver of Elegant Eggplant. My two feathers and greeting are from the A Happy Hooray Stamp Set, the feathers are stamped in Melon Mambo and cut out with my paper Snips. The greeting is stamped in Elegant Eggplant and punched out with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch. I love the simple yet bold look of the card and the dots across the bottom are just fun!


My second card uses the another fun new Photopolymer Set. The base of this card is Whisper White Card Stock. My background consists of a piece of Lost Lagoon on the top and a piece of Soft Suede on the bottom. I used the Tiny Triangles Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to emboss both pieces and some Gold Foil Sheet across the middle to hide the seam. My greeting is from the Age Awareness Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped each piece individually in Soft Suede and Lost Lagoon. I love the greeting, Facebook really does help me remember a lot of people’s birthdays!


I hope you enjoyed my cards using products from the new 2014-2015 Catalog. There are so many things in the Catalog, I merely skimmed the surface. Now you’re off to see what the clever Heidi Boos has in store for you. She never disappoints! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me, and enjoy the rest of the tour!
