September Tour de Freaks!

Welcome to the September Control Freaks Blog Hop, aka Tour de Freaks!  We have a total of eleven fabulous stampers creating with a "Halloween Boo to You" theme for you this month!  Be sure to travel all the way around the hop; if you started with me, you'll end up back here and know you completed the tour!  You may have arrived here from Justin Krieger's blog; he does wonderful artwork!


The first card today features a pumpkin diecut with the next to the smallest Oval Framelit (3 pieces), embossed with the Stylish Stripes folder and decorated with leaves from the Fall Fest set and Linen Thread.  The boot and saying are from the Bootiful Occasions set which has four fun boots in it!  I used Blendabilities to add color to the boot and veins to the leaves.  The background DSP is Basic Black from the Neutrals Paper Stack.  I brayered the top with So Saffron and the lower quarter with Mossy Meadow.

 
This little BOO card scene has Island Indigo DSP from the Regals Paper Stack as the background.  The Fall Fest pumpkins are the In Color Tangelo Twist.  Our friendly little ghostie is also from the Fall Fest set, diecut with the Fun Fall Framelits, as are the pumpkins.  I used my Fringe Scissors to cut a little grass and added a few fall leaves.  BOO is cut with the Perfect Print Alphabet Bigz Dies and the Big Shot. I would use a letterl-sized envelop to mail this card since the ghost extends over the edge, or you could just trim it off and use the regular A2 size.


This little 3-D Pumpkin was cut with the Curvy Keepsake Thinlit Die from Tangelo Twist dotted Confetti Celebration DSP.  These are so quick and easy to make it's ridiculous and you can decorate them any way you want!  This one is simple:  I just used Mossy Meadow for the bow and a black bird punched out with the Bird Builder Punch!  

I guess I could have named this post "Pumpkins and Polka Dots" but when I started, I didn't know that's how it was going to end up!  lol!  That's the creative process, isn't it!!


Thanks for visiting!  Next up is the most creative and amazing Mary Brown!!
