The Control Freaks group decided to make a blog tour using the swaps we made for our group from Convention. You probably just came from Wendy Weixler’s blog!! She is an amazing stamper, isn’t she? I love all her cards but ESPECIALLY LOVE her masculine card! Gotta have that set now, too!

By the way, I am WAY BLESSED to be a part of this incredible group of stampers! You probably recognize many of these gals from the countless awards they have won at the Stampin’ Up conventions over the years!!!!

Here are the two cards I made for the swap.

The first card is a Birthday Cake pop-up card! The left photo shows the card closed. When you open the top of the card, the cake slides up out of the pocket (right photo), revealing the sentiment on the cake! When you close the card, the cake retracts back into the card pocket. I want to do a video on this card, it is simple to make, but will make more sense if I can SHOW YOU! Check back here for the video.

This card is a coffee cup, with LIPSTICK PRINTS on the top cover! We girls can relate to that, right? (My husband asked WHAT IS THAT AT THE TOP! LOL) LOVE the new kiss stamp in the new catty! Perfect for this card! When you pull the top lid of the coffee up, out comes the “coffee” card, which is perfect to put a Starbucks gift card on!

I will try to do a video for this card, too, so you can see the dimensions I used.

The next Control Freak Blog Tour stop is at Jan Tinklenberg’s blog! She is such a VERY CREATIVE gal, and was a presenter at the opening night of the Stampin’ Up party! She has some BEAUTIFUL projects you won’t want to miss!
