Totally Techniques Blog Hop - Faux Torn Edge

Totally Techniques

Welcome to the TOTALLY TECHNIQUES September blog hop! Today we are featuring a technique called FAUX TORN EDGE. This is an oldie but goodie! Here's what I came up with:

Spooky Sweets - ORDER STAMPIN' UP! PRODUCTS ON-LINE. Purchase the $99 Starter Kit & enjoy a 20% discount! Tons of paper crafting ideas & FREE Online Classes. www.AStampAbove.com

I chose to use the SPOOKY SWEETS bundle along with SHELTERING TREE for my spooky cards! I have a video tutorial that will show you some great tips here:

My first card uses the JOYOUS NOEL GLIMMER PAPER - this comes in an assortment pack of orange, green and red. I thought it was perfect for the moon on my Halloween card.

That sky really looks spooky doesn't it? And a couple FACETED DOTS in black were perfect for this card!

  • Basic Black 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"

Here's the inside - still spooky right?

And then I made this one! A 1 3/4" Circle Punch was used for the mask on the moon. And of course the cute little tree from SHELTERING TREE has a spooky element to it when used on this card!
