Control Freaks September 2012 Tour!

Posted on

Hello everyone and welcome to the September Control Freaks Tour featuring Fall projects! I’m so excited to be a part of this incredibly talented group. If you have arrived here from the tour you have just come from Jason Casper’s site. Didn’t he have some great projects?!?! This is my first tour with the Freaks, how awesome is that?!?! I’m a little excited, can you tell?!?!

The first project I have to show you is a card. Not just any card but a 3D window card that folds flat so that you can still mail it. The base of the card is Always Artichoke Card Stock. I used a piece of Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper to frame the window and I also used a piece down the right side. The images in the back are from the Spooky Bingo Bits Stamp Set and are stamped in Basic Gray, Basic Black and Early Espresso. I also cut one of the tombstones out and adhered it with a Stampin’ Dimensional. The image on the piece of Window Sheet is form the Toxic Treats Stamp Set and is stamped in Jet Black Staz-On. The little moon in the upper right corner is made with Tangerine Tango and the 1″ Circle Punch. For the greeting I used the Seasonal Sayings Stamp Set stamped in Tangerine Tango and backed with a piece of Basic Black.

The next project I have to show you is a Halloween Banner. The base of all of the banners is Basic Gray, that I flagged the ends on, with a piece of Crumb Cake that is embossed with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The image on the first banner is from the Toxic Treats Stamp Set and is stamped in Basic Black on Pumpkin Pie and cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits Dies. Some Basic Black is cut out using the Paper Doily Large Sizzlits Die. I cut out a piece of Basic Gray, flagged the ends and used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack to pierce the edges. All of the pieces are adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The next three banners all have a rosette made with Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP and my Simply Scored. The letters are form the Broadsheet Alphabet Stamp Set and are stamped in Basic Black and punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch. The flagged pieces of Pumpkin Pie are stamped with the Border Banter Stamp Set and are backed with pieces of Basic Black that are punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle punch and paper-pierced around the edges too.

The last project I have to show you is a wreath. I used the Autumn Accents Bigz Die to cut out all of the leaves from Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and More Mustard Card Stock. They are all embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I used a hot glue gun and the Silicone Craft Sheet to attach them to the wreath. The greeting is from the Seasonal Sayings Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede. I flagged the ends and paper-pierced the top and bottom. The acorns are from the Wonderfall Stamp Set and are stamped in Soft Suede and adhered to the back of the greeting with some Sticky Strip. The greeting is then adhered to the leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
