Control Freak Convention Swap Blog Tour

Freakwelcome

WELCOME to the July 2011 Control Freaks Blog Tour !!!

We are showcasing the cards we swapped with each other at Convention at our annual lunchtime swap.

You have probably joined me after visiting Cindy Major's blog and you can click on the "next blog" link at the bottom of the post to continue on the tour.

Our tour officially starts on Wednesday, July 20th.. so if you are joining us early, some of the blog tour links may not be quite up yet.. so please check back Wednesday morning for the full tour.

 

Control freak swappers Last week I gathered with my fellow Control Freak demonstrator friends to swap cards at the Stampin' Up! Convention.  They are VERY TALENTED gals and I am blessed to count them among my friends!

Below are the 2 cards I swapped with them at our annual lunch time convention swap.  Both are My Digital Studio Hybrid cards.

Swap CF fab floral
ABOVE: I used a piece of designer paper from the BEYOND THE GARDEN package (pg 185, #122342) on the top (the yellow and white flowered paper) and I made my own flowered paper for the bottom portion on My Digital Studio.  I layered them onto a Lucky Limeade folded card and added Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon (pg 194, #122977).  I stamped the 'THANKS FOR BEING A FRIEND' sentiment (from Happy Greetings, pg 26 Summer Mini) in Poppy Parade ink onto a die cut doily from the PERFECT PENNANTS die (pg 221, #123126).  I made the Fabulous Florets flowers in My Digital Studio, also, and YES I PROMISE Iam making a video tutorial for this .. my to-do list is just so long you can't believe it (I actually have about 5 to-do lists).  :)  The leaves are stamped in Lucky LImeade on Lucky Limeade cardstock with the Build a Blossom set (pg 112, #121923 or 121994).

Here is the other card I made to swap with the Control Freak Swappers:

Swap paris 1

close up of hybrid embellishment:

Swap paris 2
You'll recognize this design from a previous card I blogged (all details here) but this time I mounted it to a Cherry cobbler card and I added some embellishments.

For the embellishment:

  • Regals collection paper stack, pg 186, #117154
  • Decorative label punch, pg 209, #120907
  • Victoria Crochet trim, pg 194, #118481
  • Antique Brads, pg 198, #117273
  • Jewelry Tag punch, pg 210, #117190
  • Tiny Tags set, pg 136, #118091 or 118592
  • Stampin' Dimensionals, pg 206, #104430
  • Sponge Daubers, pg 203, #102892
  • Cherry Cobbler ink, pg 179, #119669
