Stampin’ Up! Custom Tee and Everyday Tags for the Control Freaks Blog Hop

Control Freak Stampers

Welcome to the January Control Freak Stampers Blog Tour!  You may have arrived from Lisa Martz, her projects are always fantastic!  This month the theme is “Sale-a-bration/Occasions 2017” so we’re all creating Stampin’ Up! projects with items from the Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration Brochure.


For my first project, I’m featuring the awesome Window Box Thinlits Dies, the Succulent Framelits Dies and the Everyday Tags stamp set.  This box came together in a snap and so did the flower on top!  I created the flower center by snipping a 1/2″ x 4-1/4″ strip of Rich Razzleberry card stock with the Fringe Scissors and then rolling it up.


The flower was cut from Mint Macaron card stock with the three larger solid flower dies from the Succulent Framelits Dies set (I cut two of each size).  I sponged a little Rich Razzleberry ink around the edges and used a Bone Folder to curl the petals.  I stacked the die cuts up and adhered them together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then glued the flower center down with more Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I did see a similar Window Box created by Bronwyn Eastley and you can see her creation here.

For my second project, I’m featuring the Custom Tee stamp set bundle.  I also used a little of the Carried Away Sale-a-bration exclusive DSP and the Tasty Treats Designer Washi Tape.  The “welcome” on the background was stamped with the image from the Places You’ll Go stamp set.  This little card is on the way to a new team member!

  1. Love the box–the succulent is very real looking and that fringe center tops it off. YAY for a new team member (and her/his card!). Hope s/he will hop with the team on Thursdays…enjoy that hop lots.

  2. T-Shirt is cuteWas really enjoying the blog hop. Wendy’s was a broken link as is Lyssa’s going the other way. I don’t know who is the leader for the blog hop, but it would be really helpful if there was a link list so we could skip over the broken links. I’ve had this happen before. Thanks Phyllis

  3. Gorgeous succulent box and I love the Custom Tee card…I just got it and need some inspiration! Great job!

  4. Both your projects turned out amazing Amy! I love the box topper – the succulent/flower turned it really pretty. And congrats to your newest team member! 🙂
