It's All About Stamping

It’s a Freak Tour!


We Control Freaks welcome you to the 10th  stop on the Tour de Freak!  You’ve probably just arrived from Mary Brown – Stamper Camper’s Corner tour stop.  She always has wonderful projects and ideas!

We are featuring stamps and colors from the new catalog.  Here’s a couple projects using the new Hostess level 2 set called Fast & Fabulous.  In order to receive this set, you must have a $300 workshop.  A couple hints:  I did not use the 2-step stamp for the melon mambo color on the flowers…I just painted it.  The black bow at the top of the flowers is just a thin piece of black card stock….not ribbon.  Although it will be nice to have that 1/8″ taffeta ribbon soon!

Here’s What I Used:
Stamps: Fast & Fabulous, Occasional Quotes
Paper: Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Sahara Sand (outline flowers), Stazon Black, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Pear Pizzazz marker, Eyelet Border punch, Black Satin ribbon, Ticket punch, Corner rounder punch, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder, Aqua Painter,

I went with the same colors and stamp set for my next project also.  This is a Ghirardelli Box…pattern found here on Splitcoast.

Here is how it opens:

These are so quick and easy to make and would make anyone happy to receive a filled one!!  …Dark chocolate & caramel….mmmmmmm.

So glad you came today!  I hope you’ll come back again real soon!
