Welcome to the February 2014 Tour de Freaks! Our theme this month is "Mish-Mash", meaning we can do whatever we like! Which is right up my alley, because I like doing whatever the heck I want! It's the
I'm the first stop on the tour this month, but you may have just landed here from Judy DiScipio's blog. Weren't her projects great? There are eleven blogs linked and you can take the tour by clicking on the "next stop" button at the bottom of each blog.
My projects this month are from the All Occasions Class we just had. My idea was to create a bunch of different cards (without any greetings on them) to have available for any occasion that might pop up. Then all we'd have to do is add the appropriately themed greeting and get it right in the mail the same day! So you will see the "blank" card, and then one with a greeting added.
First up is something that could work as a masculine or a feminine card. The card uses Summer Silhouettes for the basic card, with a greeting from Perfect Pennants added on the second card.
STAMPS: Summer Silhouettes, Perfect Pennants CARDSTOCK: Whisper White, Cajun Craze, Retro Fresh DSP INK: So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, Baked Brown Sugar, Cajun Craze ACCESSORIES: Big Shot, Banners Collection Framelits, Gold Baker's Twine
Next up is a decidedly feminine card with flowers and butterflies. The basic card doesn't even use any stamps! The second card uses Perfect Pennants again for the greeting. This one is going to someone very special to let them know I'm thinking of them.
STAMP: Perfect Pennants CARDSTOCK: Whisper White, Island Indigo, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Gingham Garden DSP INK: Island Indigo ACCESSORIES: Big Shot, Apothecary Accents Dies, Fancy Fan folder, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Pearls Basic Jewels
Up last, is another card that would work for a man or woman. I'm giving it to a family member (who shall remain nameless) whose birthday is coming up real soon!
STAMPS: Flowering Flourishes, Delightful Dozen CARDSTOCK: Whisper White, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Gingham Garden DSP INK: Old Olive, Basic Black ACCESSORIES: Big Shot, Circle Card Thinlits, Modern Label Punch, Brights Designer Buttons, Brights Candy Dots
Yes, I realize the colors are different. I didn't have enough of the same style buttons!
Did you like the before and after ideas? I hope so! Having a ready-to-mail supply of any occasion cards is a good thing.
That's all for me this month. Next up is LeeAnn Greff's blog. Thanks for taking the tour this month. I hope you come back soon!
