Control Freaks March Blog Hop - Beautiful Bouquets

Hello, Stampers!

The FREAKS are back this month with a Beautiful Bouquet of inspiration for you! Whether you are just starting out here or arriving from Melissa at the Stamp Doc, you will be directed at the end so be sure to follow along!

I think the floral images from the Birthday Blooms
stamp set are just gorgeous! I created (2) different cards
using the same supplies, just swapping out the colors...

The gold embossing makes it really easy to color
with blender pens! It keeps the color inside the lines
and adds the extra sparkle, too!

Stamps: Birthday Blooms
Ink: Versamark, Powder Pink, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Pool Party, Tranquil Tide
Paper: Whisper White, Powder Pink
Accessories: Gold Embossing Powder, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, Metallic Enamel Shapes,
weetheart Embossing Folder, Tranquil Tide ribbon, Powder Pink ribbon, Stitched Shapes framelits, blender pen

Multiplying Like Rabbits!

Good Morning, Stampers!

These sweet little Easter baskets were so much fun to create for my stamp class attendees this week!
The basket is not a new idea, but I did alter the size to make them fit these little Hershey bunnies.
The NEW Basket Weave embossing folder from Sale-A-Bration is the perfect fit for the base of the basket!

To Create the Basket:
1. Cut the Chocolate Chip cardstock to 3" x 3".
2. Score at 1" & 2".
3. Turn the square and score again at 1" & 2".
4. Snip on the red lines.
5. Emboss the piece using the Basket Weave embossing folder.
6. Bring up each side and secure to the center with a staple to form the basket.

7.. Cut a 1/2" x 7 1/2" strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock to form the handle.
8. Adhere the handle to the inside of the basket to secure.
9. Tie a bow in the ribbon. Secure the ribbon to the side of the basket with hot glue.
10. Fill and enjoy!

Paper: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Basket Weave embossing folder, Hot Glue, Stapler, Assorted ribbons

I grabbed the Climbing Orchid stamp set for this card.
It hasn't seen much ink lately and I decided to give it
a little love! I forgot just how beautiful these flowers are!
By following the sketch, the elements just fell into place!
Stamps: Climbing Orchid
Ink: Fresh Fig, Old Olive, Crushed Curry
Paper: Whisper White, Fresh Fig Fresh Florals, Color Theory DSP
