Faux Tearing

Hey there stampers! Thanks for stopping by!
Today's card is the second one we did at my Technique Class this weekend.  I showed Faux Tearing for the grassy hill.


  1. Start with a Very Vanilla card stock base, add a panel of Crushed Curry and Close to Cocoa card stock.
  2. Using a scrap Scallop Circle and a sponge, sponge Bashful Blue ink to create clouds in the background on Very Vanilla card stock.
  3. Tear a scrap piece of paper to use as your mask.  Mask off the top part of your card and ink up the Texture Jumbo Wheel in Old Olive ink.  Wheel along bottom of card until you like the way it looks.
  4. Carefully move the mask up about an 1/8" and use a sponge and Old Olive ink to create a darker edge to your "hill".
  5. Stamp your tree and leaves from the Branch Out stamp set in Close to Cocoa, Crushed Curry and Old Olive.  Notch out the corners with the Ticket Corner Punch.
  6. Stamp the leaf that says "thanks" from the Falling Leaves stamp set in Pumpkin Pie ink on Very Vanilla card stock and cut out with scissors. Adhere to card with dimensional. Tie Old Olive Grosgrain ribbon around top of card.
