April 2014 Tour De Freaks


This month's Tour de Freaks theme is "Non-Gender Specific"…that kind of cracks me up!  Anyway…projects that can be used for either male or female is how I interpreted it!  The Control Freaks have a short, but sweet, tour for you this month!  Come take the tour!  You've probably just come from Justin Krieger's blog…weren't his projects fun!


I decided to use my On Film Framelits…I haven't used them much…and matched them with Film Strip and Hip Notes Stamp Sets!  I used a Black/White/Silver theme and love how they turned out!  There is a card and matching gift card holder.  My daughter-in-law always asks for photo processing gift cards (she uses them a LOT with Carter!), so this will be perfect for her!



Here's a closeup of the card.  The cameras from the On Film Framelits are embossed on Silver Cardstock…and  there is a touch of Silver Glimmer across the bottom.  I also used Gorgeous Grunge in the background with Neutrals Designer Paper Pack.  The Filmstrip stamp (did you even know Stampin' Up! carried it???)  I extended by piecing it together.



And here is the matching gift card holder.  I used the same stamp sets and details on it, along with the Pop N Cuts Card Base Die.




Inside is a stand-up piece to hold the gift card.  I cut the opening with the Word Window Punch.


Make sure to continue on around the rest of the Blog Tour.  Next up is my good friend, Debbie Henderson…I always ADORE her work and am sure you will, too!


Just FYI – Typepad has been having server issues the past few days because of a hacker.

Love your card and I got a real chuckle out of how many of the ‘freaks’ used the By the tide or seashore set!
