Control Freaks April Blog Hop!

Welcome to an April Blog Hop sponsored by the Control Freak Stampers! This month's theme is all about "Celebrations"! You may have arrived here from Heidi Boos blog. How awesome were her projects huh? If you are starting with me, I will direct you to the next stop at the bottom of my post.

I made 3 cards for you today. My first card is for a "Birthday" celebration:

Notice that I am using the 5 In-Colors for my balloons from the 2013-2015 In Color Paper Stack. I am so sad thinking that these colors are only around for a little over a month and then will be gone! I also used the Celebrate Today stamp set and the Balloon Framelits Dies which is a coordinating set.

For card #2, I created a wedding card using the For The New Two stamp set paired with the Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper. I love the Sahara Sand Ink and cardstock with the coordinated colors of the DSP:

I made this card into a tri-fold card and added the Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon using Sticky Strip:

For my final project I decided to do something a little different. I created a card that can be used for several celebrations and used the Easel Card pattern using the Hearts Framelits Dies:

The stamp sets I used for this card are the Chalk Talk and Project Life Remember This. This was super fun and quick to assemble and decorate. The bottom sentiment is raised with Stampin' Dimensionals to hold the card up into the easel position.

I hope I have inspired you today and I'm sure once you make the hole loop around the blog hop, you'll have tons of ideas to draw from. Next in line is my wonderful teammate Connie Babbert's blog.... Be prepared to be amazed!
