It's that time again, time to freak out with the Freaks on our monthly blog tour! If you've just arrived from Dawn Olchefske's blog, you are in the right spot!
But if you started right here, fear not! You can manage to get all
the way around the entire tour just by following the links at the
bottom of each post.
This post is going live on the evening of the 19th, so if you find some posts in our tour have not yet posted, please be patient. The entire tour should be accessible at some point this evening. Keep checking back!
The theme of this tour is Birthday projects. Who doesen't need birthday cards? NOBODY.
For my first project, I have a card using a set that I bought a while back but had not seen ink yet. Heck, it hadn't even SMELLED ink! So I got busy and....lookie:
Ingredients: Stamps - Patterned Party, Beyond Plaid; Paper - Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Whisper White; Ink - Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Old Olive; Other - Argyle embossing folder, Cupcake Builder punch, Old Olive 3/8" Striped Grosgrain, markers, dimensionals, Basics Jewels Rhinestones.
GOJUS!!! (YILM!) I love argyle as a pattern, and so I knew I had to team up the Argyle stamp with the Patterned Party set AND the Argyle embossing folder. And if you are wondering, I cut out the flags indvidually and glued them in place for the banners, and the Argyle background was carefully lined up and stamped using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, just because I am that kind of crazy!
I decided to do a treat container for my next project. But not just ANY treat container. This is a party in a tiny box, or in this case, milk carton! I also decided it was time to ink up yet another set that was "virgin" rubbah! Lookie:
