Control Freaks: NEW On the Grow and Blossom Bouquet Punch

Blog Tour Pic 
It's that time of the month again...Control Freak Blog Tour Time!  This month we're sharing sneak peaks from Stampin' Up!'s 2011 Summer Mini Catalog (to be released May 1st).  I'm stop #8 of 11.  If you're coming from Deb Currier's blog - welcome!  (If you arrived before April 20th - all tour sites may not be "live" yet)

First up is a couple of One-Layer Cards using the new stamp set, On The Grow.  I have a saying..."sometimes less is more".  These two cards, fit the bill!



Stamp in Stazon Jet Black ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Color with inkpads (Perfect Plum, Old Olive and Baja Breeze) and a blender pen.  Add a 1/8" Taffeta Very Vanilla Ribbon and you are set to go.   I'm not the best with watercoloring - but I'm happy with the way these turned out.  They make me smile!

Now on to an Envelope Holder with Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch...This could be used for a gift card, money, candy, small gift packaging, etc.


I'd like to introduce you to the NEW Stampin' Up! Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch!  With one punch you can choose from three images.  Love it!  I used it to create a Decorative Paper Clip to keep the envelope closed.  Just slip it off to open the envelope.



Woohoo - here's the surprise inside!  I used two of the three Blossom Bouquet punch images (along with other punch shapes) to create an embedded embossed card.
