The Control Freaks are so happy that the holidays are near since we can all use a little holiday cheer these days, and the Freaks want to share some! There are seven of us today, and I'm number one on the list. If you started here with me or landed here from Wendy's blog, Wickedly Wonderful Creations, either way, welcome! Be sure to follow the links at the bottom of each stop to visit all the Freaks.
I got kind of wrapped up in the pines from the In the Pines bundle, LOL. Both of my cards use either the stamps or dies..... but there is a sneak peek included on this first card. Did you notice it right away?
That gorgeous Rococo Rose ombre DSP is part of the Oh So Ombre 6" x 6" DSP that will be available as a Sale-A-Bration reward in January! It reminds me so much of alpenglow, which I haven't seen in decades.
The background trees were stamped in black directly on the DSP, then the snowy hill was adhered on top. The larger tree was stamped in black, and the tree filler and snow in Smoky Slate. Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes include a sheet of iridescent flakes with pink, lavender, and peachy undertones which were perfect for this card!
The second card just uses a tree die from the Pine Woods Dies along with a label die from the Hippo & Friends Dies. The background under the tree was made with the ol' baby wipe technique except I didn't stamp on it; I dabbed the inky wipe on a scrap of cardstock for the mottled effect. I was kind of hoping it would look like snowy branches, but I don't think it does. Still an interesting look, though.
The Sahara Sand striped DSP is in the Classic Christmas 6" x 6" DSP pack that is only available until January 4th, while supplies last. It is such a lovely neutral to accent the Shaded Spruce ink and ribbon! And naturally I had to add some Holiday Rhinestones to match. *grin*
That's all my projects for this month. Up next is Tami Hewlett at Swimming in Stamps!
