Freakwelcome2013 (2)

Welcome to the December 2014 Tour de Freaks Blog Hop! We are so excited to have you join us today.

Our theme is Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs so you will see some brand new Stampin' Up! products!  Our tour features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers. You may have just come from the blog of my incredibly talented friend, Julie Davison,  you may be one of my blog stalkers or you may have just stumbled here…however you got here, you’ll be very glad you did!  Be sure to take the whole tour!  If you are arriving here on the 19th, please note that not all links may not be working yet.  The tour officially begins on the 20th.

My first project uses the Butterfly Basics Bundle.  I used our Note Cards with Envelopes for this project and created a liner for my envelope by cutting a piece of the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack with the Envelope Liners Framelits.

I used the medium Butterfly Thinlit to cut Silver Foil Paper and Whisper White card stock.  After I die cut the white butterfly, I colored it with our NEW Blendabilities colors!!  Yep, that's right, we are adding Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay to the lineup.

I attached the two die cuts together at the body and fluffed up the wings a bit.  The greeting is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set and inked with Basic Gray. 

Supplies: Butterfly Basics stamp set, Butterfly Thinlits Dies, Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes, Whisper White card stock, Silver Foil Paper, Basic Gray Classic Pad, Blendabilities-Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette.

My second project uses the single stamp called Love is Kindness.  I inked the image with Memento Tuxedo Black so I could color the flowers with the Pink Pirouette Blendabilities Markers.  I added dark, medium and light in different areas of the flowers to give them dimension.  The stems were colored with the medium Wild Wasabi Blendabilities Marker. 

The newspaper wrapping was stamped again on a scrap cut out and popped up on the first image for a 3-d effect. I colored it with the Smoky Slate Blendabiilites.  I cut the image with one of the Ovals Collection Framelits.
