Control Freaks Blog Hop - Holiday Mini Catalog

CF Header

Welcome to the Control Freaks September blog hop! We have a great line up of fabulous ideas using the Holiday Mini Catalog - WHOO HOO!!! You may have just arrived from Connie Babbert's Blog or maybe your started here. Please make sure you scroll down to the NEXT button to hop along.

I chose to use the Country Home stamp set and Country Lane Designer Series Paper - both in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I love the water pitcher and the milk can in this stamp set - with two different bouquets of flowers that are interchangeable - it's a winner in my book!

I used a Crumb Cake card base (5 1/2" x 8 1/2") and the Country Lane DSP on the front is 1 3/4" x 5". The Detailed Lace edgelit was used on a piece of Blackberry Bliss that's 5" x 2". I love how all the little bits come out of this intricate die with my Big Shot Die Brush - it's the perfect tool for a die like this.

The oval is die cut on Very Vanilla cardstock and I used the Layering Oval die that measures 3 1/4" from top to bottom and then the scalloped oval that's just a little bit bigger for the Blackberry Bliss matte behind it.

It's not as easy to see in this photo but the cotton is colored in with the Stampin' Chalk Marker to brighten up that cotton. It really does make it POP in real life.

And then we have the water pitcher....oh how I love that! I stamped it with StazOn Black ink on our new Galvanized Metallic Paper. I cut it out by hand. It's a pretty easy image to cut out - just cut off the handle and cut that out and glue it back on - you can't even tell!

The oval layers and the banner greeting are both popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

I used Old Olive Light, Mango Melody Dark and Blackberry Bliss Light Stampin' Blends to color in the flowers and leave in my bouquet. Add a little bow of Braided Linen Trim to the handle and you have a beautiful card!

Beautiful card, really love the edgelits. Love the colors and the layout. Very versatile.

Cindy Elam

Love your coloring, and the lace edgelit with the bit of DSP is perfection! Thanks for the tip on cutting out that handle....I would have attempted it with an Exacto knife, with disastrous results undoubtedly. 😉

Ah Kelly....there you go again inspiring me! We have very similar styles for cards. I adore all of yours. You are so awesome! Thanks for being so generous with your idea sharing and for providing such excellent details on how you make your projects. I copy many of your cards!! I feel it’s important to reach out and comment so you know your efforts aren’t in vain. Although I’m a fellow Demo, I want you to feel appreciated in all you do in the stamping world. Are you going to Orlando? I would absolutely love to meet you and give you a big hug!!
