Stepping Things Up - Control Freaks Blog Hop


Hello stampers and welcome to another Control Freaks Blog Hop!  This month we are stepping things up with our projects. Did you just arrive from the amazing creation from Melissa Davies of Rubber Funatics or are you just getting started?  Either way, make sure you don't miss a single stop along the way!

I decided to make my focus on the beautiful Perfectly Penciled DSP for my projects today.  I always love any black and white DSP and this pack of paper does not disappoint!

For my first card, I keep things simple with nothing but paper, stamps and ink...and maybe some embossing powder too!  Charming Sentiments stamp set was perfect to go along with each different design.

Next up is another pattern of Perfectly Penciled with a little pop of color.  I die-cut 
circle from the center of DSP and colored the flowers with Calypso Coral and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.  I wanted a bit more color, so I filled in the remaining white space with Pool Party Stampin' Blends.  The colored circle was then layered on a Basic Black circled, carefully lined up to match the black and white flowers behind.

Next up is the big step up...lot of color for the flowers, followed by lots of fussy cutting!  These beautiful blooms were popped up with a few Dimensionals on top of a Basic White background with just the right amount of splatter.  Some separated threads of Parakeet Party Metallic Woven Thread were tucked behind the sentiment, along with a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive-backed Gems scattered around the floral image as a finishing touch.
It's always fun to start simple and step things up!  

Check out Cindy Elam of Hearts Delight Cards to see how she stepped things up too!
Thanks for hopping along with all of us!

Happy Stamping!
