Freaky Sneaky Peeky!!

This month, the Control Freaks are featuring items that were available as part of Stampin' Up's "sneak peek" into their new catalog!! Did ya SEE what Patty Bennett made???? Wonderfulness!!

I am featuring the new set called "Label Love" ... AND it has a LOVELY new punch that goes with it!! (It, happily enough, is called the "Artisan" punch ... makes me happy!)! These were samples that I just happened to make for SU's Regional event here in Salt Lake City last month (and the "tiling" technique is what I demonstrated ... I'll be showing a bit about that in a future post!)! So, here is my first card ...

Stamps:  Label Love, Blooming with Kindness
Paper:  Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe
Ink:  Early Espresso, Crisp Cantaloupe
Accessories:  Large Scallop Edgelits Die, Artisan Punch, Delicate Designers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Simply Scored

This one was quick and easy ... and kinda dude-like. I sent it to my nephew in Spain (which makes this part of my "Cards for Crayton" challenge, too!)!

Stamps:  Label Love
Paper:  Baked Brown Sugar, Pistachio Pudding, Very Vanilla, First Edition DSP
Ink:  Baked Brown Sugar, Early Espresso
Accessories:  Artisan Punch, Small Oval Punch, Simply Scored

And ... DRUMROLL ... c'mon now!! Y'all KNOW you have about INFINITY of these little mailboxes in your crafty stash!! Admit it ... you DO!! Because we ALL had to buy them out at Target when they were "new" several years back. I have SOOOO many of these that I HAD to pull one out!!

Stamps: Label Love, Rain or Shine
Paper:  Strawberry Slush, Whisper White, Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP
Ink:  Pacific Point, Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo
Accessories:  Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Old Olive Scallop Dots Ribbon, Curvy Label Punch, Artisan Punch, Pearl Basics

Next up?? The ever-amazing Connie Babbert!! She just ROCKS!!

Love, love, love your first card. I am very interested in how you did the sponging. Can't wait for more info.

WOW! Love that gorgeous first card! Yummy! Looking forward to hearing how you did the tiling technique. Super cool masculine card for your nephew too! Yep, I've got one of those Target mailboxes too. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
