Control Freaks December Bog Hop!

You are in for a treat tonight with the December Blog Hop for the Control Freaks! The treat is that we are all using new goodies from the Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Catalogs that will debut on January 5th! Enjoy the hop!

If may have just arrived here from visiting with my talented teammate Dawn Olchefske at DOstamping with Dawn. If you are starting with me, I of course will direct you to the next stop once you view my projects. I have two cards for you tonight and I decided to go with a floral theme on both cards. 

 My first card uses the Botanical Gardens Suite. Can you spot the new products?


How about drooling over the new Botanical Gardens Designer Paper and the new Botanical Builder Framelits Dies? How FUN are these framelits! Who would not want such a happy card with the Happy Healing sentiment from the And Many More stamp set? I made my vase pop from the card front and it looks so real!

And for card #2 I used even more new products. The Love Blossoms Suite is another line-up of fabulous products. I used the new die called Bloomin' Hearts Thinlits and wait....what about ALL of those guts that have to come out of the heart shape? We have a NEW tool! Once I ran my die and cardstock through the Big Shot Machine....wait.... literally took me seconds to get all of those pesky guts out. How? With the new Big Shot Die Brush...YES! I also cut some additional little flowers to stack over the die-cut as this die comes with two additional flower sizes you can cut out. And why are they so shiny? Because I colored them with Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush in a Clear color. It also comes in Gold! It's like coloring with a marker that has a brush on the end, so easy!

Phew! Did I show you some awesome goodies? And there is page after page of wonderful new products. You only have a week or two left before you can see them all in the new catalogs! Okay, now on to some more fabulous new products by visiting Connie Babbert at Inkspired Treasures. I know you are going to be drooling some more!

 Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!
