I hope you enjoyed seeing all the pictures of the boards of Convention that I shared last week. I am always so impressed with the amazing amount of talent on display!! Speaking of talent…I was lucky enough to be in a swap with the extraordinary Control Freaks! Wow, what a stunning variety of cards I received!
For my card, I wanted to show off the new Hexagon Punch and the Epic Day DSP. I am so in love with both of these products! I started with a Crumb Cake layer and used the splatter stamp from the introductory My Paper Pumpkin kit (Gorgeous Grunge would work beautifully here too). Then I sponged the layer. I added a little Crumb Cake ink to the doily and then added a banner layer out of this cool speckled print. A quick punch of three patterns with the Hexagaon and you have a super focal element. They are just popped up on Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from Six-Sided Sampler (the coordinating set with the punch) onto another of the prints from the DSP and slid the banner under a Vintage Faceted Button tied with Linen Thread. If you want to see more of the swap cards from the Control Freaks, many of them are on display on this Pinterest board.
Now I have some awesome news for you!! On Thursday, the Artisan Design Team 2013 will begin its blog hop of the winning projects. Plan to sit back and be amazed for 10 days!!
I’ll be back tomorrow with another of my Control Freaks swaps which is also the Freshly Made Sketches card of the week. I’m the sketch hostess and I can’t wait to show you. Thanks for stopping by today. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow and then for the following 10 days! Have a great day!

Thanks for updating your blog to include Amy’s name. I have to apologize to you though because in my excitement of seeing Amy’s canvas I neglected to tell you how much I enjoy following your blog. I really like your card style! Thanks again.
