Control Freaks Blog Tour: Simple and Elegant


Hello everyone! Welcome to the Control Freaks blog tour! I am stop #5 after Heidi Boos! If you are out of order then don't worry as you will make a complete circle and be able to visit everyone's blog by clicking the "next" button at the bottom! Please note: if you are visiting before the 20th, all the blogs may not be working. To take the tour with no glitches, be sure to come back on the 20th! 

I haven't participated in one of these in a long time! I was so glad to get back into it!! This month's theme was simple and elegant. I can do simple easy enough but I sure did get hung up on the elegant part. And after making my cards, I kept second guessing myself. But time was running out and this is what made the cut!


First up is a very simple card! In fact I used the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch! The colors came from the My Create Ink - SU Color Lab. I knew I wanted to use Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzazz. I just didn't know what other colors would go with those. So I plugged those two colors in and a whole array of beautiful combinations came up! This set is one of my favorites!

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Stamp the images from Kinda Eclectic onto the card base using Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz, Baked Brown Sugar (stamped off once) and Night of Navy inks
  • Stamp the butterfly images onto Rich Razzleberry using Rich Razzleberry ink and punch out using the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches
  • Adhere butterflies to card 
  • Punch a butterfly from vellum card stock using the Bitty Butterfly punch and adhere to bigger butterfly
  • Adhere pearls to butterflies
Pretty simple and very mailable!



For my second card I tried to go more elegant. I think it still fits into the simple category, too. And what could be more elegant than gold! I haven't used this washi tape in quite some time so it was fun to get it out again!

  • Card base is Very Vanilla
  • Stamp the flower image from Choose Happiness onto the card base with gold Encore ink
  • Cover a piece of Very Vanilla card stock with the Watercolor Wonder washi tape and adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the greeting onto a strip of Very Vanilla using Rich Razzleberry ink and flag the end
  • Adhere a strip of gold foil paper to the back and then adhere to card
  • Stamp the bird image onto a piece of Very Vanilla using Lost Lagoon ink and cut out then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Punch a flower from Pink Pirouette card stock using the itty bitty accents punch pack and adhere to bird
  • Adhere gold sequins to card (one to flower center)
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my projects! Be sure to click the image below to get to your next stop on the blog tour! It's Melissa Davies! Enjoy!!

Blackberry Bird

Good morning everyone! I hope you are ready for another week! I think I could use another day of the weekend! Saturday was a long day of soccer games in the hot sun! Ugh! I got burned even though I used sunscreen and sat in the shade! How does that happen? Yesterday I got a lot of stamping done but still have quite a bit more to do so I will be working on that throughout the week after I get home from school. I do like my job but it sure gets in the way of the fun stuff - lol!

Today's card was one that I did a while ago. I wasn't sure how I felt about it. I tried the splattering thing and it just didn't do it the way I wanted.

  • Card base is Smoky Slate
  • On a piece of Smoky Slate stamp the sentiment from Choose Happiness using Smoky Slate and Blackberry Bliss markers to ink it with
  • Tie a piece of Blackberry Bliss stitched satin ribbon around the panel and adhere to card
  • Stamp the flower onto a piece of Naturals White using Hello Honey ink
  • Stamp the stem using Mossy Meadow ink and use a blender pen to pull color into the leaves
  • Adhere panel to a piece of Blackberry Bliss and then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the bird image onto a piece of Naturals White using Blackberry Bliss ink and cut out then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • (Here's the step I would leave out next time) Use an aqua painter and Smoky Slate ink to splatter the card - maybe yours will look better than mine...
Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

I got some new goodies and am looking forward to playing with them!! Nick's Back-to-School night was last night and it was great to meet all his teachers!

Friendly Happiness

Good morning, Friends! Well it felt really good to sleep in one more time before the chaos starts tomorrow! I start to freak out and get nervous and then I remember that I am not the one in charge! Haha!! I am just there to support and this first week will be about observing, getting to know the teachers and the kiddos and also getting to know how the curriculum works. Well I can do that! Pat and I went in yesterday to move some furniture around and I think I will go in today and try to put some things away. But other than that, I don't think I need to worry too much about what's there. It's ALL there - lol! When working with kids k-5 you've got it all!! It's just trying to figure out where to put it...

So I spent the afternoon on Wednesday doing that. Today is my first day! Wooho! We just have meetings today but I am also going to see my room and get keys and meet the staff. School starts on Monday! Crazy! It's a part time position right now but I am more than thrilled! I am also really nervous - lol! But I have some great friends that are really encouraging me and so I feel ready! My son is even really excited for me. He asked me last night what I was going to wear. That cracked me up!!
