Because, silly, it's the Controlfreaks' Blog Tour, that's why!
If you've just landed here from Dannie Graves' blog, you are in the right place! But fear not, if you started here, you will be able to do the complete circuit and end right back here when you are finished.
This month's theme is that favorite holiday of so many, Valentine's Day! I say so many because undoubtedly there are some people who would rather not observe it at all. They say things like, "I don't need a Hallmark holiday to tell my wife that I love her!" Can you imagine that?
Others...Er..don't. I'm not naming names now! But some just don't, that's all!
Hopefully, YOU won't be one of THOSE people and you are looking for ideas for that special someone or even nice friends worth remembering with a lovely handmade greeting. So let's get rolling! Lookie:
Ingredients: Stamps - Greeting Card Kids, Grateful Greetings; Paper - Designer Series Paper Pack - In Colors, Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride, Basic Black, Whisper White; Ink - Basic Black, Poppy Parade; Markers - Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Poppy Parade, Bashful Blue, Blush Blossom, White gel pen; Other - Wide Oval Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch,1/8" Basic Black Taffeta, 5/8" White Organza Ribbon, Glimmer Brads Basics, sponge wedges, dimensionals.
STINKIN' CUTE is my middle name and STAMPIN' is my game! (YILM!) Well...It's not ACTUALLY my middle name, but anyway, it is stinkin' cute, so there! I paper pieced her little dress and I think she's just adorable.
But after I was done with that one, I just felt covered in cute, ya know? It was just dripping off of me and so I figured I had better switch over to something a little more classic! Lookie:
Ingredients: Stamps - Three Little Words; Paper - Newsprint DSP, Confetti Cream, Blushing Bride, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black; Ink - Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla craft, Cherry Cobbler craft; Markers - Blushing Bride, Cherry Cobbler, White Gel pen; Other - Lots of Love Letterpress plate, Scallop Circle punch, Scallop Circle Bigz die, Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit, Wide Heart punch, Bitty Punch Pack, Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Folder, 3/4" Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, sponge wedge, DImensionals.
GOJUS!!! (YILM!)I ordered a bundle with all the Letterpress plates that were in the last mini catalog, including this one. I played with some of them and just wasn't absolutely thrilled with the results. They are a bit messy to work with, so I never even bothered to play with this one. But for the tour, I pulled it out and had another go. Printing it on top of the Newsprint DSP was a stroke of genius! Genius! (YILM!)
Yes, there is a lot going on, but it is all necessary! It was one of those things that, you know, you keep looking at it and looking at it and it just needs SOMETHIN'! SO you add something and then you keep looking at it and looking at it and it just needs somethin' else! ANd on and on it went. But I'm happy. Really. Even if...Even if I don't get any chocolate! I'm a happy woman! I am!!!
Finally, I have a little treat container for you. Lookie:
Ingredients: Paper - Newsprint DSP, Cherry Cobbler, Blushing Bride; Ink - Cherry Cobbler Classic and Craft; Other - 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta ribbon, Boho Blossoms punch, Heart to Heart punch, Jewels Basic Pearls, sponge wedge, dimensional
