The Control Freaks are Seeing Spots!

The Freaky theme this month is circles, spots, and/or spatters so this should be a fun hop! If you landed here from Melissa's blog, welcome! There are five of us this month, so it won't take too long to take the tour.

I had all kinds of ideas popping in my head, but I manage to narrow it down to just for Autumn and two for Winter. Since Autumn is up next on the calendar, let's start with that one! The Fond of Autumn bundle is so fun to play with, especially if you like to color, which of course I do. 😁

I combined all kinds of elements on this card, from a border die (Basic Borders) to the grid die behind the image (Chic Dies) to an embossing folder (Gingham), a little DSP, and spatters from the Color & Contour stamp set - whew!

I even colored some Fine Sparkle Gems to match the flower centers. I sure do love being able to make custom-colored embellies to coordinate.

Next is the Winter card featuring circles and polka-dots. That lovely dotted silver DSP is only available until the end of this month (while supplies last) as a Sale-a-Bration freebie with qualifying purchase.

I used the trees from the Peaceful Deer stamp set to create the winter sunrise scene. I forgot to leave enough room for the greeting, so I stamped some Vellum Cardstock and die cut the circle to lay over the scene letting it hang off the edge.

The last card was made with the Christmas Lights bundle and the coordinating Lights Aglow Specialty DSP. I love the Bokeh look of the background DSP. It's like looking at lights through squinted eyes.

The tree was stamped, heat embossed in gold, die cut with the outline die, then die cut again with the inner detail die. I added some red glimmer paper behind for extra sparkle.

I have to tell ya, those Festive Pearls are the perfect thing for trimming the tree! The greeting is from Brightest Glow, a fab collection of just greetings, and part of the whole Lights Aglow Suite.

That's all I have to share today, so up next is Bree, at Craft-somnia Momma. She's sure to have you seeing spots!
