Control Freaks Blog Tour: 3 Beautiful Blizzard Projects

Whether you are coming from the creative and talented Melissa Stout's blog or just joining us -- welcome to the November 2018 Control Freaks Blog Tour! Our theme this month is Home for the Holidays! Although I haven't started decorating for Christmas yet, I've definitely been crafting for Christmas! We have some amazing products in the Holiday Catalog this year. Unfortunately, many of them are already selling out because they have been so popular, so don't wait to stock up on your favorite holiday goodies! 

Tonight I am sharing projects that I created with the Beautiful Blizzard bundle. There is a new snowflake stamp set and thinlit die set available in November, but these projects all use the set in the Holiday Catalog. The Blizzard Thinlit is one large die that cuts many snowflakes at once. When I started playing with this bundle back in August, I cut out one pieces each of Balmy Blue, Blueberry Bushel, Whisper White, and Silver Foil. Not only did I have a bunch of snowflakes to use, I also had four gorgeous background pieces.

My first card is pretty simple. I layered the "negative" of the Balmy Blue die cut piece (4" x 5-1/4") on to a Blueberry Bushel card base and added the sentiment on layered circles.

I love the new Baker's Boxes available in the Holiday Catalog. They are food-safe and a good size to share a yummy treat or gift. The top of the box has a clear window. I attached the Silver foil "negative" die cut piece to the inside of the box so that it would show through the window and then added the double ribbon bow and tag.

My last card is also clean and simple. I layered a piece of Vellum Cardstock (3-3/4" x 5") over the Blueberry Bushel card base and then layered different color snowflakes on the 1-3/8" Scallop Circle punches. Tip: Place the center circle first and then space the ends.

6 Spirited Snowmen Projects

I saw something on Facebook that made me smile -- it said that it snows in November when people decorate for Christmas too early! As much as I'm ready for the Christmas season, I'm not ready to start decorating! But since it's snowing here in Illinois, I'm ready for some cute snowman cards! I hope you enjoy these projects created by Stampin' Up! Concept Artists using the new Spirited Snowmen stamp set. This is a must-have for all snowman-lovers!
