WELCOME to the November 2011 Control Freaks Blog Tour!!!
We are showcasing SIMPLE PROJECTS in this tour.
You have probably joined me after visiting Barb Mullikin's blog and you can click on the "next blog" link at the bottom of the post to continue on the tour.
Our theme this month is KISS:
Keep It Simple Stamper!
So you will find quick and easy projects to inspire you on this tour.. enjoy!
My first simple project for you is also a SNEAK PEEK into the Upcoming Occasions Mini catalog!! This card features the BRAND NEW Paper Doily die that I got as a gift on my recent Founder's Circle trip!
I cut the doily die out of patterned paper from the Flirtatious Designer Series paper pack. Then I cut the center "flower" out of it and layered a Concord Crush "doily" (from the Perfect Pennants die) in between the 2 Wisteria doily layers. A Wisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon and polkadot brad completes this simple and quick design.
I embossed the folded Baja Breeze card and embossed it with the polkadot embossing folder (pg 219, #117335), then die cut a Top Note Die (pg, 222, #113463) with Whisper White cardstock and then embossed that with the Northern Flurry snowflake embossing folder (pg 219, #120902). I embellished the Top Note die with die cut snowflakes from the Northern Frost Sizzlit Decorative Strip die (pg 225, #120901) using Silver Glimmer Paper (holiday mini pg 41, #124005). They are decorated wtih polkadot brads (pg 199, #122940).
