Control Freaks Blog Tour: Watercolor Wings Half Circle Pop-Up Card and Mini Frame

Whether you are coming from Judy DiScipio's blog or just joining us -- welcome to the June 2015 Control Freaks Blog Tour!! It's been a few months since I've been able to play along, so I'm excited to share some new Stampin' Up! catalog projects with my freaky friends. I hope that you enjoy the tour and are inspired by what you see!

My projects use my favorite new stamp set: Watercolor Wings and the coordinating Bold Butterfly framelits. I also used one of the new ("junior) In Colors: Mint Macaron and paired it with an "senior" In Color: Lost Lagoon. What a great combination!

I designed this half circle pop up card when I was making projects for Spring into Stamping (our team's annual demonstrator training event). I'll be posting the video tutorial for technique this weekend, so be sure to come back and visit me or subscribe to my YouTube channel so you can see the video tutorial and learn how to make this fun card!

I used the same colors and stamp set to create this cute little frame. I can't remember where I found the frame. The inside measurement is 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" fit a wallet size photo I guess. I die cut the detailed butterfly with vellum cardstock. It adds a pretty layer of detail to this framed art. And the In Color Blossom Accent is perfect in the middle.
