Hello everyone and welcome to another Control Freaks Blog Tour! I am so glad you are here! You may have just come from Judy DiScipio's blog filled with beautiful projects! Or maybe you just landed here. Either way, I hope that you will be inspired by what you see! This month's theme is Christmas!
My first project is a card.
I took a piece of the Naturals Composition specialty designer paper and sponged Cherry Cobbler onto it. I love how the design of the paper resists the ink! Such a cool technique!! Then I adhered this to a piece of Early Espresso and popped the panel up onto a card base of Crumb Cake. Then I added a strip of champagne glimmer paper. I took a piece of Very Vanilla to the Big Shot and cut the shape using the Labels framelits dies. I stamped the greeting from Rejoicing with You in Early Espresso and popped this up onto the card. The image is stamped in Crumb Cake onto Very Vanilla and cut out. This is also popped up onto the card. I added three pearls to the bottom of the label as well.
For my second project I made two ornaments!
My friend, Alison, showed us how to make these ornaments in our shoebox club earlier this year. I had always wanted to learn and now I know! They are really fun and pretty easy! And I love that you can use up scraps of designer paper, too! Each of these is made using the Festival of Prints designer paper. I used varying lengths of strips and then stapled them to the length of the center strip. I cut an extra little piece to cover the staples and then punched a hole at the top with the crop-a-dile. A piece of white baker's twine was tied to make the hanger.
That's it for me! Be sure to head on over to Cindy Major's blog to see her fabulous creations! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a super day!
