September 2010 Control Freaks Tour: Anything Fall

Blog Tour Pic

Welcome to the September 2010 Tour de Freaks Blog Hop! We are so excited to have you join us today,  This month, I'm the 6th stop on the tour featuring Fall Seasonal projects made with products from Stampin' Up!.   Our tour is nice and short and features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers. You may have just come from my good friend Wendy Weixler - welcome!

My first project is a card I taught at my Technique Tuesday class this month that features the Faux Tearing technique

1.  Tear a piece of paper and use it ask a mask on part of your cardstock.
Sponge some ink on the unmasked area
3.  Add some "collage style" stamping with the Fall Foliage stamp set (from the Holiday Mini Catalog).
4.  Remove the mask to review the magic!

This is a great technique to use to achieve the look of pattern paper without the bulk or cost.  Didn't turn out beautifully!

and some 3x3 gift enclosure cards.


I folded over the top of the lunch sack and sponged some cajun craze ink on it.  The greeting is from the Day of Gratitude stamp set (from the Holiday Mini Catalog) as well as the 3x3 gift cards.
