Around the World Blog Hop

Welcome to the “Around the World on Wednesday” blog hop!  I am so excited to be part of this as they are bringing back the very first “Control Freak” blog hoppers for a really cool…

My color was “blue” and this was tough because I really do love ALL the blues!  I am however, very sad the Seaside Spray will be retiring and decided to do a little bit of retiring (ink color, ribbon, dies) with a little bit of new stamps!  Of course I just HAD to use dragonflies…I absolutely LOVE dragonflies (in case you couldn’t tell from my blog banner!)

Here’s the details…

  • Seaside Spray – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Seaside Spray – 3 3/4 x 5, stamp some of the small dragonflies in Seaside Spray, add to card front
  • Sand and Sea DSP – (Seaside texture print) – 1 1/2 x 3 3/4, add a strip of Misty Moonlight – 1/2 x 3 3/4, behind panel and add to card front
  • Basic White – cutout the two largest shaped Stitched So Sweet Labels, stamp the smaller on with the greeting in Misty Moonlight, add smaller label to larger one using dimensionals, add to card front
  • Basic White – stamp two dragonflies in Memento Black, color using Seaside Spray and Misty Moonlight Blends, punch out, add Wink of Stella to wings, let dry and add to card front
  • Tie a small bow in the Seaside Spray metallic ribbon, add to card front
  • Add an Opal Round to finish off

Simple card but so pretty in blue.
