Grateful to Be a FREAK!

What a crazy-eventful day!!! LOTS of things have been going on in my life ... which I will get to later ... but in the meantime, welcome to the "Grateful" version of the Control Freaks Blog Tour. We are all sharing our own little "thank you/gratitude" creations this go-round! If you've been hopping around, you just came from the magnificent Melissa Stout!!! I'm in a "Melissa Sandwich" for this blog tour ... how FUN is THAT???

The inspiration for this card came from an AWESOME dress I bought a few weeks ago. It is seriously SO fun! So I decided I needed to make my own version of the fabric in a card ... I LOVE this color combo!!

Stamps: Flourishing Phrases
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Soft Sky, Mint Macaron, So Saffron, Cajun Craze
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Pretty Pines Thinlits, Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits, Gold Ribbon
Here's a similar version of my last card ... turned horizontally ... and swirled instead!!! I was really trying to stretch myself with different color combos this time around (and I used some colors I don't often use!). I had fun with this ... I also love me some framelits dies (like, WHO DOESN'T??)

Stamps: Feather Together
Paper: Very Vanilla, Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Linen Thread, Flourish Thinlits Dies, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies, Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits

So ... my crazy life ... we have started doing a LITTLE bit of prep for my daughter's wedding. This is going to be fun and BUSY. I have also been trying to reorganize my life (meaning, my HOUSE). It's been WAY to long since I did this. I DID put up some Halloween decor and lights as well. I hope I can PURGE a bunch of stuff and free myself up!

Next up??? The marvelous Melissa Davies!!! Grateful for all of her creative inspiration!

Love these Wendy! I especially love the pine bough die cuts, they look awesome in those colors. Great designs! :)

Melissa Davies said...

Beautiful color combinations! I love how we can find inspiration all around us - definitely something to be grateful for!

I was just going to say what Melissa said, love that we find inspiration everywhere! The color combinations on BOTH cards are just fab, and surprisingly, even though I'm a "bluesy" girl, I think I like the swirl card the most!

Awesome cards Wendy, the diecuts look great as your background layers!

Melissa Stout said...

Great cards! I suspect you are gaining some design inspiration from LLR? (That's actually very clever)

If your dress looking anything like your card it's got to be amazing! Love the use of the pine boughs and the colors you used - so very pretty!
