Control Freaks April Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our April Tour de Freaks!  Glad you could stop by and visit.  You may have come from Mary Brown's blog.  She does such a wonderful job.  Hope you are enjoying our Tour.

I have a couple of cards to share.  I made this card for our April Stamp-a-Stack.  This was my very first time to use the Summer Starfruit card stock and DSP.  The dashes on the DSP look like shooting stars...which gave me this idea.

Stamps:  Simply Stars, Perfect Pennants
CS:  Summer Starfruit, Pacific Point, Whisper White
DSP:  Sweet Sorbet
Ink:  Pacific Point
Misc:  Scoring tool to make big star dimensional, SU Dimensionals, Rhinestone Jewels
       Star punches---I just realized they are retired.  What's up with that?  We NEED
       star punches.  :)

My next card will be perfect for a male birthday.  I will be teaching it at next month's Stamp Camp North.  It is an easel card.  When you open it up, you see "Another great year, another great birthday".  It will be perfect for my brother in Idaho for his birthday.

Stamps:  Walk in the Wild, Another Great Birthday, Hardwood
CS:  Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede
Ink:  Basic Black, Soft Suede
Markers:  Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi
Misc:  Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi, Mini Silver Brad, Linen Thread

Thanks for stopping by.  Now to continue on your way, you are in for a treat at Barb Mullikin's blog.

Tag Topper Punches by Stampin' Up!

Have you tried the new Tag Topper Punches?  There are so many things you can do with them.  At our Stamp-a-Stack last evening Lisa Gray shared a wonderful card made using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch 133324 $22.95.

This is a video showing how to use these punches.  I'll be sharing more videos to come.

Peaceful Petals

 For our March Stamp-a-Stack we all made Unique Fold cards.  The customers got to make each card and go home with a unique fold direction sheet on how to make each card.  I decided I would use the Easel Fold card.  I cased this card but can't find where I saw it.  If it is yours, please let me know and I"ll give you credit for such a lovely card.  It is a great card for a birthday or even Mother's Day.  When you pull the center piece up to an easel position, it shows the sentiment.  Very Frilly.  I love it!  This was the first time in quite awhile to not use my Big Shot.

Stamps:  Peaceful Petals, Blooming with Kindness
CS:  Whisper White
DSP:  Sweet Sorbet --- I absolutely am in love with this designer paper!!!! [SAB]
Ink Pad:  Basic Black
Markers:  Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Pistachio Pudding
