Game Night – Control Freaks Swap

Sorry!  I’ve been slacking and not getting my posts out first thing in the morning!  Check back tomorrow morning, though…I’ll have my Bloggers’ Challenge up.  

I think it is safe to post my Control Freaks Catalog Preorder Swap…everyone should have received their swaps back by now.  This was my contribution.  I signed up for this set that demos could preorder from the new catalog.  Then we I got it, I drew a blank on what to do with all the small pieces!  After trying several different alternatives, I ended up with this one.  I used three different colored Patterns Designer Paper…Riding Hood Red, Pacific Point and Kiwi Kiss…those colors looked like game pieces to me!  I mounted them on Basic Black to make them pop!  Then I stamped the images onto Glossy cardstock…I like using Glossy with solid images, it makes them appear nice and bold.  Then I punched them with the 1 3/8 circle and layered onto the Scallop Circles.  Game Night I punched with the Word Window and then layered onto the Small Oval punch, adding two mini brads on the side.  I just knotted the ribbon instead of tying a bow.  Once I came up with the design, it didn’t take me long to put them together…it was good  TV time.

C/S: Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Pacific Point, Basic Black, Glossy White, Patterns DSP
Inks: Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, Riding Hood Red, Basic Black

Connie — great use of this stamp set. I am in the same boat: love the stamps, not coming up with a great card, some CASEing might be in order!

VERY Eye catching! Great job Connie! I haven’t mounted my set yet but I understand what you’re saying about a lot of small piece..that can be challenging, but you did a great job the way you put it all together! TFS!
