A Couple Faux's and a Pouch

This month was a lot of fun! A little pocket treat pouch and 2 cards. First the pouch. It is called the Diaper Fold Pouch. For some reason I do not like that it is called that. So I just call it the Pocket Treat Pouch. LOL

Isn't it the cutest thing! I used Haiku DSP. I used the colors in the paper on this project. They are Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, more Mustard and So Saffron. I watercolored the pumpkin using the aquapainter and taking ink from the lids of the pads. I gave the choice of putting a jack o lantern face on as well. And they had the choice of the words "Happy Halloween" as well as the "for you".

This technique is Faux Seersucker. To make the seersucker look you use the crimper. Put your stamped image through the crimper one way and then quarter turn it and put it through again. VERY cool.
I used the Stitched background and the set Stitched Exotics. Colors are Bordering Blue, Bravo burgundy and Always Artichoke.

This is the Faux Framing technique. You use the coluzzle or a punch to make a mask to sponge ink onto your cardstock and then stamp inside the shading.
I used the new set A Rose is a Rose. This is my favorite set out of the catalog. I love it!
The colors are Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss. I also used the Scallop Punch along the edge of the card and sponged that. LOVE that punch.

All projects are strictly © Stampin' Up! this month.

I love the seersucker. I can't wait to try it out. Always something new.

I agree, I don't like what they call this treat holder. When I was growing up they had paper cups near the drinking fountain on the trains that were folded just like this. I call it the drinking cup fold.

Your class projects are fantastic Debra - I especially like the Faux framing one - that rose is so striking!

I forgot until I read the above comment about the drinking cup that someone made me one of these for my purse when my kids were small as an emergency cup if the kids needed water. As always, I LOVE your projects. You are so creative and such a good teacher. You are a gem in my life.

Thanks for sharing the faux seersucker-it's something I haven't seen before.

I came to your blog from a SCS MI forum thread. I've just started looking around SCS for more than the gallery.
