Control Freaks Blog Hop

Welcome to the Control Freaks  blog hop featuring BEAUTIFUL BOUQUETS. That's the theme this month. I'm super excited to show you a couple of the cards I made for my Facebook Live event on Sunday night with the amazing BLACK ICE TECHNIQUE!

You might be arriving from the talented Debbie Henderson or you might be starting right here with my blog...either way...make sure you go to the bottom and look for the NEXT graphic (it looks just like the one above only it says "click here to proceed") and continue on the hop with us! There are 7 blogs in this hop with fabulous creations to share with you.

I went crazy with the BLACK ICE TECHNIQUE and love how this technique turned out:

This beauty features the HEARTFELT BLOOMS stamp set - FREE with your $50 order until the end of March. OMGosh - I love this stamp set and the Black Ice Technique just accentuates the beauty of the image - what do you think? You'll find a video tutorial on my Facebook page - just do a search for A Stamp Above - Your Creative Coach.

Here's a close up of the Black Ice - it's embossed with clear embossing powder after dragging your VersaMark ink pad very lightly across your cardstock.
