Tour De Freaks August Blog Hop Tour!
August 19, 2009
Welcome to the August Tour de Freak tour! We are so excited to have you join us today on our third Tour de Freaks Blog Tour. This month we are featuring projects made with the new Stampin' Up! 2009/2010 IN-COLORS...Aren't they fabulous this year? The best yet - IMHO!
Our tour is nice and short and features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers. I'm stop #1, but you may have come here by way of the infamous Janine Tinklenberg's blog. If so, welcome! At the end of my post you will be directed to the next stop so make sure to keep on reading and don’t forget to click through to Julie Dinn's blog (stop #2).
Sit back, relax and enjoy the tour!
On to the projects...
My first two projects feature the gorgeous "Cottage Wall" Designer Series Paper with Rich Razzleberry!
I love this double heart card. So easy to do.
Instructions: Cut your Pale Plum card front in the Mover and Shapers die with the heart shape die. Then leaving the cardstock in place, slide the heart shape over so it over laps the previous cut heart and cut again. I also ran it through the Big Shot again, this time using the Stampin' Up! Backgrounds I Texturz Plate. Attach a couple of Full Heart punches and Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot ribbon and you're done. Quick & Easy, but cute!!
Next is a Petal Card Window Box.
I just LOVE the way this box turned out. So freakin' cute!!
Instructions: Just die cut, with the Big Shot, four Petal Cards (now retired) from Old Olive cardstock. Attach them together side by side (with Sticky Strip). I punched the window with the 1-1/4" circle punch, then adhered a window sheet over it. The decorative outside layer was punched with the 1-3/8" circle punch. Added a butterfly cut from the Beautiful Butterflies die cut. Attached it with a square rhinestone brad. The bottom and top are just folded up (kinda like a chinese takeout box). Then tie it up Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon!

Now moving on to another In-Color...Dusty Durango.
I'd like to introduce you to Kitty Kat. Even my husband liked this card. That says a lot! Just a little fun with punches and Kitty Kat comes together quickly. The greeting is from the Really Retro stamp set #113754 (now retired).
Last, but not least...Here's a little bit of Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo (which I think is my favorite of the In Colors!)
Meet Miss Mermaid...
The greeting is from the Full of Life stamp set #111500. Ok - so this one is a little more time consuming, but well worth the effort.
I hope you enjoyed this stop on the Tour De Freaks Tour. We look forward to seeing you again on September 20th for our next Tour de Freaks Blog Tour!
