May 2013 Tour de Freaks



It's time for the May 2013 Tour de Freaks, brought to you by the Control Freak Swappers!  We have a small (but mighty!) tour for you this month, featuring the PREVIEW projects for the NEW catalog!  Are you excited?  We are!  Follow the buttons to go around to all the stops on the tour…until you return to my blog!  You've probably just come from Wendy Weixler's blog…weren't her projects fun?


I used the Mosaic Punch to make my Punch Art flowers…the details are the piercing and a peek at two new colors…Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding!  LOVE the new In Colors!  I've made a card with a matching little favor.  The favor will really hold something larger than the Ghirardelli Chocolate, but I didn't have anything else to put in it!




Here is closeup of the card.  As I mentioned, I used the Mosiac Punch and the new Soho Subway Designer Paper.  It also features the greeting set, Really Good Greetings…a super fun set!  I free-hand pierced around the ends of each flower petal, then scored the "leaves" in half to make them pop up a little more.  The two sizes of Scallop Circles, 1 1/4 and 7/8, make a great center for the flower.



My second project is the candy pouch.  I used the Designer Label Framelit to cut out the back top of the pouch.  Then used the same flower and Designer Paper on the front.  The greeting is from the new Label Love stamp set that has the matching punch, but I just free-hand cut out the greeting portion.



So, what do you think?  I love how the flower turned out using Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe with Pistachio Pudding leaves!  OK…time to continue on to the next stop on the tour…the famous Justin Krieger!  I'm sure you will enjoy his projects!

Connie, your card and candy pouch are just gorgeous! Love the beautiful flowers you made. Colors are so good together and the sentiment in brown and orange are cool…Is that the subway art printed on the designer paper? You always have such great projects! Thanks for sharing!
