Control Freaks April Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone and welcome to our Control Freaks April Blog Hop! This month, our theme is "Splash Of Color" and I created two cards. If you arrived here from my teammate LeeAnn Greff's blog or you are starting off with me, I will direct you to the next person on the hop at the end of my post. Take a peek at my two projects:

For my first card, I am using some new products from the upcoming 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. I just love this cute octopus and all of his coordinating layers:

What I do love the most is the fishing net that I cut with the die and did you spy the new twine? Here is a listing of the new stuff I used:
  • Sea Of Textures stamp set
  • Under The Sea Dies
  • Silver & Pool Party Baker's Twine

The colors I used are Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coral, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party and Soft Suede. These are all colors that are staying in our color families in the new catalog!

For Card #2, I used one of my favorite colors that will be retired on May 31st. I only have about six weeks left to use up my stash of Tempting Turquoise:

I used the Ink Refill Spritzing Technique on the background of my card. This was a layer that was sitting on my counter from a video I did on this technique and I thought I would use it up:

 New products used:
  • Love What You Do stamp set
  • Painted Glass stamp set
  • Foliage Frame Dies

  1. Debbie, BOTH of your cards are gorgeous! (I'm sad that Tempting Turquoise is retiring, too.)
