Control Freaks Blog Tour: New Stuff


Hello everyone! Welcome to another blog hop with the Freaks! This month we are showing off some new product! I am your stop after the fabulous LeeAnn Greff

You can see from these two cards what was one my first order - lol! And I love the new In Colors! So here is my first card:


I love the big bold flowers in this set! So fun and easy to watercolor!
  • Card base is Smoky Slate
  • Adhere a piece of Pool Party to the card base
  • On a piece of Whisper White stamp the flower image using black StazOn ink and color in using an aqua painter and Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush inks
  • Stamp the image again onto another piece of Whisper White using the same ink and color in using the same method with the same colors then cut out
  • Stamp the splatter image from Gorgeous Grunge using Pool Party ink then stamp the greeting using black StazOn ink
  • Adhere a strip of the Watermelon Wonder dotted lace trim to the back side of the panel at the top and bottom
  • Tie a piece of Smoky Slate thick baker's twine around the panel and adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Adhere the cut out flower to the card using dimensionals
  • Add rhinestones to card
Card #2!


  • Card base is Pool Party
  • Stamp the blossoms image from Birthday Blossoms stamp set onto a piece of Pool Party using Pool Party ink then stamp the greeting using Tuxedo black Momento ink
  • Fold a piece of Watermelon Wonder dotted lace trim and tie it around the stamped panel then adhere panel to card base with dimensionals
  • Stamp the flower image twice onto a piece of Whisper White using black StazOn ink and stamp the leaves image twice using the same ink
  • Color the images using an aqua painter and Watermelon Wonder, Mossy Meadow and Hello Honey inks
  • Punch the flowers out using the Pansy punch and cut the leaves out
  • Adhere the leaves to the backs of the flowers
  • Adhere one flower to the card with glue dots in the center and the second flower using dimensionals in the center (of the flowers)
