Control Freak Blog Tour - Christmas Samples


Welcome to the Blog Tour this month.. sit back, relax, enjoy the ride and enjoy the Christmas Ideas we have in store for you !!!!

This is an 8x10 frame I made to display at home this Christmas... I used the VINTAGE ORNAMENTS #1 STENCILS from page 29 in the Definitely Decorative Decor Elements catalog. 

Vintage orn frame 

I sponged the ornaments in Rich Razzleberry and Soft Suede classic ink then sponged the decorations with the PLATINUM SHIMMER PAINT (pg  27 in the Holiday Mini Catalog).  The HO HO HO is printed out in Always Artichoke from MY DIGITAL STUDIO and layered onto Always Artichoke CS.

My next sample was a very quick card I made using MY DIGITAL STUDIO.. with the templates provided it is soooooooooo easy to make up a quick photo card or just a card using Stampin' Up! artwork.  Here I've added a photo taken on our son's High School Graduation day in June.   This sample uses the "Christmas Jingle" Designer Kit.

Here is another MY DIGITAL STUDIO project.. I made some full sheet stationery to use in December.. I love that I can customize my own stationery and print as many as I want for each season!  (I have been printing my stationery sheets on my color laser printer at home, but have printed all my cards, calendars and bound scrapbooks through the Stampin' Up! printing service.. click HERE for pricing info on printing).

Not sure if your daily blog should be showing up at the very bottom of all your advertising, etc. so thought I should mention it....I would think it should be to the right side of all that "stuff"...instead the right side of your paper is blank???

I love your picture frame. It's gorgeous! Did you stamp the top (using Borque Motifs?) What color did you use?

Your stationary is beautiful. I just got MDS and have been playing with it. I never thought to make stationary.

I just made a flyer, using MDS, for my first class. As new demo, I'm so excited about the program. I can't wait to share it with my customers.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful work with MDS!

This is beautiful! I forget that I have the ability to combine MDS images that I can print out. Then I don't have to get up to get the stamp out and I can just sit here. Lol!

Hi Patty - I just totally copied you. Lol! Except I used Inspired by Nature to make fir tree branches. This was so much fun and you did such a good job. I brought this for an example to stamp club and sold 3 sets of those stencils. Thanks for sharing! I just posted a picture on my blog.
