September Tour de Freaks!

 It's time for the September Tour De Freaks!  We're primarily featuring products reflecting this time of year ... FALL & Holidays!  We love the items in the Stampin' Up! catalogs related to this time of year so grab a cuppa' and take the tour!  We have ten 'tourguides' this time so be sure to go all the way around the tour to see everyone's creations until you end up back where you began! Welcome also to all of you who have arrived from my very talented friend Debbie Henderson's blog.  Didn't you just LOVE her projects and artistry?!!

 One of my favorite things about fall (other than losing the 100 degree temps!) is the beautiful colors of the trees and shrubs.  When I saw the Vintage Leaves set in the Annual Catalog, I could imagine them in rich fall colors and knew right then that I "needed" this set! : )

The new Leaflets Framelits are fabulous to diecut these; lucky us, we now have TWO sets of leaves that coordinate with these framelits!

Stamps:  Vintage Leaves, Endless Thanks (sentiment)
Inks:  Hello Honey, Tangerine Tango, Mossy Meadow, Rich Razzleberry
Paper:  Delightful Dijon, Mossy Meadow, Cajun Craze cardstocks; Timeless Type DSP
Accessories:  Leaflets Framelits, Lots of Labels Framelits, Washi Tape Punch, Gold Sequins, AquaPainter, Gold Thread, Boho Chic Embossing Folder

I love cute little 3-D projects that are quick and easy to make; I was really excited to see the new Square Pillow Box Thinlits in the Holiday Catalog!  It is so easy to whip up these pouches that can be decorated any way that makes you happy; you can use it for treats, small gifts and even a gift card!   
I used my Bohemian Washi Tape to decorate this one (finally!  what took me so long to use it?!)  This pouch reflects some of the richness of fall colors that are so appealing:

Stamps:  Acorny Thank You set
Inks:  Rich Razzleberry
Paper:  Bohemian Designer Paper; Delightful Dijon, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla cardstocks; Gold Glimmer Paper
Accessories:  Bohemian Washi Tape, Bitty Banners Framelits, Acorn Punch, Gold Button, Bermuda Bay Twine, Woodland Embossing Folder.

Your projects are beautiful, and just perfect for fall. I am wondering how you colored your leaf on the card. At first I thought you watercolored some paper and stamped the leaf, but then I saw the white edges and wondered how you did it. Please share.
