Welcome to the January Control Freak's Blog Hop! This month's theme - Love is in the Air.
If you just arrived from Lisa Young's blog, you saw some incredible projects! Just keep clicking on the Freak's icon at the end of each post and you'll be able to see it all. I know you'll be inspired since the Freaks are freakin' amazing crafters!
This card is one we made at January's Card Clubs. I decided to go traditional and romantic in my color choices of Red & Black for our Club Valentine this year.
I used two of the new Occasions mini catalog stamp sets to create the card front - Take It fo Heart and Loving Thoughts.
The hearts are die-cuts using our fabulous new framelits. I added some ruffled Red Satin ribbon under the sentiment label.
Now, check out the inside view of this card!
It's a Valentine pop-up card! When I die-cut the full red heart for the card front, I added a second larger framelit around it to create this heart frame. I scored it in the center and added it to my White card stock using glue dots placed on just the outer-most area of the heart. ***You need to place the heart frame on the card while the card is slightly folded, not flat.
Then I added all 5 of the new Fashionable Hearts embosslits hearts around the heart pop-up. The larger stamped heart is our Full Heart punch that I stamped with the new Sale-a-Bration stamp set 'Sprinkled Expressions'.
The 'Be My Valentine' stamp is part of the Delightful Dozen stamp set.
Next up is my Ruffled Heart Pocket.
I used our Hearts framelit dies again to make this project, die-cutting 2 of the largest scalloped hearts from Vanilla card stock.
I used the Loving Thoughts stamp set again along with the beautiful new Riding Hood Red ruffled ribbon and the Sale-a- Bration designer paper called Everyday Enchantment. ***I'll post the directions for this project on Monday the 23rd right here on my blog.
And now you're off to see what the creative Jan Tink has for you.
Enjoy your tour!
