Thank you card for a friend.


The Sheltering Tree stamp set is really wonderful to work with and so versatile! You can’t tell in the photo, but the bike frame was stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with silver embossing powder to give it a metallic, shiny quality.

This card is for a friend who told me about the job I’m currently in. I’ll be celebrating my one-year anniversary in this position in just a little over a week. Accepting this job has been one of THE BEST decisions I’ve ever made and if it wasn’t for her, I would not be in this position. I am very, very grateful for her!

I cased one of my own cards found here (directions on how to create the flower are in this previous post). For today’s card, I used the 1-1/4” Scallop Circle Punch, rather than the 7/8” punch. To add sparkle to the flower and butterfly, I applied adhesive using a 2-Way Glue Pen and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on them.

I’m not sure why masculine cards are so hard to create, but it took awhile for me to finally step back and say, “Enough! It’s done!” 🙂 I kept it simple by using just one color and a very, very simple layout.

Today on Memorial Day, I’ve been thinking about my grandparents who have since passed away, but were a tremendous influence in my life after my parents divorced when I was a teenager. My grandparents made sure that my mother, two brothers and I were always taken care of — that we had food and clothes and, most importantly, a godly heritage. I love them and miss them very much!


To create the striped, “flag” background, I embossed a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock with the Stripes embossing folder. I then cut eight strips of Whisper White cardstock measuring 3/16″ x 5-1/4″, sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink and then attached them to the “valleys” of the embossed, striped piece. Then it was just a matter of die cutting this piece with the Ovals Collection Framelits Die that measures 3-1/8″ x 4″. All edges were sponged with Crumb Cake ink.

Stamps: Fabulous Phrases

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Midnight Muse, Whisper White, More Mustard

Ink: Black StazOn, Crumb Cake

Accessories: Fancy Fan Folder, Ovals Collection Framelits Die, Stripes Embossing Folder, Blossom Party Originals Die, Big Shot, 1/2″ Circle Stamp, 1-3/8″ Circle Stamp (to round corners), Stampin’ Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Antique Brad, Midnight Muse 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon, Sponge, Stamp-a-ma-jig

Welcome to the Control Freaks May 2013 blog tour! We’ve created projects using new items from the upcoming 2013-2014 Stampin’ Up! catalog. If you’re following the tour, you’ve just come from Barb Mullikin’s blog.

Here are my two projects!

PROJECT #1 – Graduation Thank You Card


My first project is a graduation thank you card. My son graduated from high school last week and his school colors are red, black and white. I wanted a design that would have a masculine feel to it and be easy to replicate. The new Mosaic Madness stamp set and coordinating Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder and Mosaic Punch all came in handy for this project.

Stamps: Mosaic Madness, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Lacy & Lovely

Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black

Ink: Black StazOn, Real Red

Accessories: Modern Mosaic Folder, Big Shot, 2-1/2″ Circle Punch, Mosaic Punch, Basic Black 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon, Rhinestone, Stampin’ Dimensionals

PROJECT #2 – Graduation Open House 3×3 Thank You Notecards


My second project is a set of small 3×3 thank you notecards for those who attended my son’s open house. The “Thank U” stamp is from the Pennant Parade set and is punched with the 3/4″ Circle Punch.


Stamps: Label Love, Pennant Parade

Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black

Ink: Black StazOn

Accessories: Perfect Polka Dots Folder, Big Shot, 3/4″ Circle Punch, 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch, Artisan Label Punch, Real Red 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals
