Control Freaks May Blog Hop!




Hello and welcome to a May Tour De Freaks Blog Hop hosted by our Control Freaks Team. You may have arrived here from visiting with my fabulous teammate Tami Hewlett or you may be starting with me. Either way, at the end of my post I will guide you to the next person participating with our blog hop.

The theme for this month is Pre-order Products. As demonstrators, we are able to order one whole month before customers do so you'll see the following new products on my cards today:
  • In Good Taste Designer Paper (152494)
  • Bumblebee In Color Cardstock (153077)
  • Just Jade In Color Cardstock (153079)
  • 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots (152480)
  • Bumblebee In Color 1/4" Ribbon (153622)
  • Greenery Embossing Folders (152716)
And you'll also see the Comfort & Hope stamp set (152509) that I earned for free during a demonstrator promotion with the help of my customers:




I know you are going to ask if there is a set of dies to coordinate with the stamp set. No, I fussy-cut those grain branches on the first card you see here:



Card Recipe:
  • Card Base: Just Jade Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2". 
  • Layer #2: Bumblebee Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base. 
  • Layer #3: In Good Taste Designer Paper 5" x 3-3/4". Glue to card front.
  • Layer #4: In Good Taste Designer Paper 4-1/2" x 1-3/4". Cut a notch at the bottom for the banner shape using the Tailored Tag Punch. Glue to card front about 3/4" from the left side. 
  • Layer #5: Just Jade Cardstock 3-3/4" x 1". Emboss using the Greenery Embossing Folder. Glue to card front about 1-3/4" from the bottom. 
  • Layer #6: Very Vanilla Cardstock scrap. Stamp the wreath image twice using Early Espresso Ink without re-inking and overlapping both images. Cut with the Stitched Shapes Dies circle #2. Glue to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • Grain Branch Image: Stamp the image using Crushed Curry Ink (we didn't have Bumblebee Ink yet) twice on Very Vanilla Cardstock without re-inking. Hand-cut and glue to wreath overlapping each other. 
  • Ribbon: Tie the Bumblebee Ribbon into a knot and glue to the grain branches using Mini Glue Dots. 
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment on Very Vanilla Cardstock using Early Espresso Ink. Cut close to the lettering. Glue to wreath using Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • Bling: Add a few 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots to the background



Card #2 uses the same stamp set:



Card Recipe:
  • Card Base: Cinnamon Cider Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4". 
  • Layer #2: Just Jade Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Very Vanilla Cardstock 5" x 3-3/4". Stamp the weave image twice using Early Espresso Ink, top and bottom. Stamp the grain image repeatedly over the weave image using Crushed Curry Ink. Glue to card front.
  • Layer #4: Cinnamon Cider Cardstock 4-3/4" x 3/4". Emboss using the Greenery Embossing Folder. Notch the end into a banner shape using the Tailored Tag Punch. Glue to card front even at the left and about 1-1/4" from the bottom.
  • Layer #5: Just Jade Cardstock cut with the Layering Circles Dies 2-1/2" scallop circle. Glue to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Layer #6: Very Vanilla Cardstock cut with the 2-1/4" Circle Punch. Using the Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker, color one word at a time on the sentiment and stamp vertically. Glue to Just Jade Cardstock circle.
  • Ribbon: Tie the Bumblebee Ribbon into a knot and glue to the right of the scallop circle using Mini Glue Dots. 
  • Rhinestones: Stamp the rhinestone image a few times to the background using Early Espresso Ink. Color with Clear Wink Of Stella. 



I hope you enjoyed both of my cards using lots of new colors and products. Our Annual Catalog goes live on June 3rd and you'll be able to order those products to replicate my cards. Now it's time to go visit with the talented Connie Babbert and make sure you visit all of my teammates that are participating in our monthly hop!
