Control Freaks Blog Tour: All About Love

Hello everyone! Welcome to a Control Freaks Blog Tour! This month we are talking about LOVE! I am stop number 4 on the tour right after LeeAnn Greff! I know you were inspired by her projects! Since Valentine's Day is coming up, I decided to use our theme for that!

Both my projects use the Snuggles & Smooches stamp set! This set is just so much fun! 
  • Card base is Whisper White
  • On another piece of Whisper White, stamp the big squiggle image from Snuggles & Smooches stamp set using Crisp Cantaloupe ink twice
  • Stamp the speckle image from Gorgeous Grunge onto the panel using Calypso Coral ink
  • Adhere two piece of Stacked with Love washi tape to the panel
  • Tie a piece of Calypso Coral ribbon from the Best Year Ever accessory pack around the panel 
  • Stamp the sentiment onto the panel using Tuxedo black Momento ink and adhere to card base
  • Stamp the heart image onto a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe using Calypso Coral ink twice and cut out
  • Adhere the hearts to the card using dimensionals
  • Add a rhinestone to each heart
  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Run a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe through the Big Shot using the Happy Heart embossing folder
  • Use the small heart image from Snuggles & Smooches stamp set and stamp inside the embossed hearts using Calypso Coral ink then adhere panel to card base
  • Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White card stock using Tuxedo black Momento ink and color in using the Calypso Coral blendabilities
  • Adhere stamped panel to a piece of Basic Black
  • Adhere a piece of folded Calypso Coral ribbon from the Best Year Ever accessory pack to the back of the panel and adhere panel to card with dimensionals
  • Punch two hearts from Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral card stock and adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Add two rhinestones to hearts
I hope that you have felt the "love"!! I had fun making these projects and I hope you enjoyed them, too! You will find tons more inspiration as you move through the tour! It's time to send you on to the fabulous Melissa Davies! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. Deb, I love both these cards you made with this set (that I didn't order, sniff, sniff!) The first is so "free" and artsy and the second is so prim and proper... both are lovely! I love those tiny hearts in the embossing! Great idea!

  2. Beautiful cards....would not have thought that these two colors were a combination but the more I see, the more I am liking them!
