Control Freaks May Blog Hop

 Hi Stampers! 


Welcome to the Control Freaks May Blog Hop! This month, we are saying good-bye to
some of our old favorites! Whether you are just starting out here, or arriving from
the ever-talented Cindy, I am so glad you are here to join us!

One of my favorites I am sad to see go is the Oh So Eclectic stamp set
and coordinating Eclectic Layers thinlits. It saw lots of ink over its time!


Here, I highlighted the colors on the white panel and
kept the background monochromatic. It really makes
the flowers pop! 


This card is more of a tone on tone. I stamped
the card front using Early Espresso
ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock. 
 The neutral colors give a little vintagy feel.

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Oh So Eclectic
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Basic Gray, So Saffron
Paper: Basic Gray, Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, So Saffron
Accessories: Stitched Rectangles, Eclectic Layers thinlits, Stitched Shapes framelits

CCMC Saturday Blog Hop - Shades of Yellow

Good Morning, Stampers!


 The Create with Connie and Mary Design Team is 
continuing the Music-themed challenge this week!
Today, we are creating cards around the song
Good Bye Yellow Brick Road.


I went with the obvious yellow-theme for 
my card. The Swirly Bird stamp set is leaving us
soon, so I thought I would get another
card in before it's gone!

To create this card:
1. Stamp the large circle for the sun using So Saffron ink.
2. Stamp the swirl on top using Crushed Curry ink.
3. Stamp the speckled image using Daffodil Delight ink.
4. Emboss (3) white clouds using the Softly Falling embossing folder
5. Adhere the clouds to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals
6. Die cut the sentiment using Crushed Curry cardstock.
7. Adhere the die cut to the card front.
8. Stamp the sentiment using Crushed Curry ink onto Whisper White cardstock, Cut.
9. Adhere the sentiment using Stampin' Dimesnionals.

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Swirly Bird
Ink: So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry
Paper: Whisper White, Crushed Curry
Accessories:  Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Up and Away thinlits, Softly Falling embossing folder
