Freakin' Jingle All the Way

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells ... Jingle All the Freakin' WAY!!! Welcome to some joyful and triumphant fun with the Control Freaks!!! Did you SEE what my fabulous friend, Barb Mullikin, created??? She is WONDERFUL!

As you can see, we are doing our best to get our holiday on and going. To be honest, I have FINALLY started to feel a little more "in the mood" for some Christmas! These are actually the very FIRST things I have created to start the season ...

I feel like I am EXTREMELY late to the dance using this set! I have been seeing a LOT of lovely things created with it (Ornamental Pine). I was initially really STUMPED as to what I was going to do with it that was not been there/done that ... I was inspired by so many things that I have seen. Tried to put my own little twists on it - I loved using the Under the Tree Specialty DSP on this one.

Stamps: Ornamental Pine, Good Greetings
Paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Under the Tree Specialty DSP
Ink: Whisper White, Old Olive Blendabilities, Skin Tone Assortment Blendabilties
Accessories: Circle Framelits, Real Red Taffeta Ribbon, Gold Button, Linen Thread, 1 1/4" Square Punch, Burlap Ribbon

Round Two ... a little more of the same, but different. I wanted to try and mess with the color scheme on this one. Like I did with my first sample, I stamped the images in white, embossed them with white and then colored them with my lovely Blendabilities markers. Just today I got a pad of Trim the Tree DSP ... I'm going to have SO much fun playing with that!

Stamps: Ornamental Pine, Good Greetings
Paper: Night of Navy, Whisper White, Trim the Tree DSP
Ink: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Skin Tone Assortment Blendabilities
Accessories: Oval Framelits, 1 1/4" Square Punch, Chevron Neutral Ribbon

Up next??? The MARVELOUS Mindy Backes!!

Thank you for sharing. I love what you've done with this set. I've been trying to achieve the same look as your first sample, with no success. Did you stamp and emboss with white, then color with the blendabilities? Please help.
You can email me at
Thank you so much!
