Control Freaks Preorder Preview!

This month the Tour de Freaks are sharing some sneak peeks from our catalog preorder! There are so many amazing new things coming in the new annual catalog next month, and we demos are the first to get to order and play with select items, one of the (many) perks of being a demo!

I'm the first stop on the hop - there are nine of us today, but you may have landed here from Lisa Martz's blog, Get Your Stamp On! It's been a while since Lisa was able to join the tour, and we're so glad to have her back! Be sure to follow the links at the bottom of each stop to visit each blog.

I chose the In Good Taste Suite because the Tasteful Labels Dies that coordinate with the Tasteful Touches cling stamp set are "to die" for... I just can't get enough of them! And the stamp set, which I didn't think would get very much use, has become one of my favorites. Who would have thunk?! I have two cards today with two completely different looks.

This first card uses two of the label dies for nice layering. I cut the stitched Rich Razzleberry label in half so it would extend farther out from under the main embossed label. The flower was fussy cut (very easy because it's not too intricate) and I added embellishments from four different suites. The white ribbon is part of the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, and the gold trim is from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. The wooden element is part of the In Good Taste Suite. And the Gilded Gems are part of the Ornate Garden Suite early release that YOU can order now!

Helpful hint: Tie two knots in that gold cord on either side of where you will cut it. That stuff unravels really easily!

This next card uses the feather image from that stamp set, and the new In Color called Misty Moonlight. We weren't able to preorder the new In Color ink pads, but I found that Night of Navy, stamped off once or twice is a dead ringer for Misty Moonlight!

The little squares were heat-embossed in white on the Misty Moonlight panel, which was then adhered on a Tasteful Textile-embossed panel. That 3D embossing folder is also part of the suite! The Misty Moonlight In Color Enamel Dots completed this monochromatic card.

That's all I have have for today, so jump on over to Melissa Davies at the Rubber FUNatics to see what she has in store!


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
