New Catalog Happiness, Control Freak Style!
Welcome to the latest edition of the Tour de Freaks! This month's theme is New Catalog Happiness, and there is MUCH to be happy with in the new catalog!!! There are seven of us on the tour, so you may have landed here from Connie's page, Inkspired Treasures. Her creations are so awesome! If you're starting here, just click the link at the bottom to go on to the next stop.
Today's projects are brought to you by the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum on page 188. It is so fun to color with either Stampin' Write Markers, or Stampin' Blends, and makes for a quick card! I call this first one "Jail Birds" because it totally reminds me of birds behind bars, LOL.
After coloring the birds, I cut the vellum down to 3-1/2" x 4-7/8" and mounted it on Whisper White the same size. A little bit of liquid glue around the edges held it in place, and was covered by a Basic Black rectangle frame (cheated a bit with S.O.B. since we don't have any).
The greeting was borrowed from Enjoy Life, and popped up on dimensionals. More new catalog happiness can be seen in the Granny Apple Green branches, which are part of the Botanical Tags Thinlits Dies on page 216.
Up next is a "current event" card. We have beautiful day lilies growing wild all over here and they've just started blooming in the past couple weeks. They're so pretty! Well, until the county mows them down as part of their weed abatement on the roads. At least they don't spray weed killer!
I used several new goodies on this card. It's really hard to see, but the Tufted Dynamic TIEF was used on the background. It sure is pretty in real life! The lilies were mounted on W.W. and I discovered that the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets work perfectly as an invisible adhesive behind vellum! Just cover the cardstock that you are adhering the vellum to, then place the vellum on top and rub it down.
Two more new goodies are on there, too. The stitched edge on the greeting panel (greeting from Healing Hugs) is from the Stitched Labels Framelits (p 220), and the gold lace stitched edging is from the Delicate Lace Edgelits (p 217). Like the Tufted embossing, it's so much more spectacular in real life!
That is all I have to share today, so hop on over to see what LeAnn has for you at Flowerbug's Inkspot. I just love her style!
