Blog Hop: Angel Art - Fall and Halloween

Welcome to the Paperwings Angel Art Blog Hop for August. This month we're focusing on Halloween and Fall! How fun!!! TAC has some awesome stamp sets for both the holiday and the season so be sure to check them out (several are on sale too!!!)!

We'll start with a couple of projects I made with my class this month. First we made this darling test tube holder. I modified the original design for the smaller test tubes (4") that we now carry. It's made with the Caboodle D cardstock, Copic Caboodle D markers and the fabulous "Spiders are Seen" TAC stamp set (that comes with a free Rockin Roxie matchbook kit if ordered before the end of the month!).
Here's what it looks like from the side - I used the 1" circle from the hole punched out of the top and cut it in half to create a design detail on each side.
We used skittles but there are a variety of items that you could use to fill these cute little test tubes - candy coated sunflower seeds, bath beads or bath salts, buttons, dew drops, mini m&ms, bird seed - you get the idea... I'll be making them with bath beads for upcoming craft fairs!
A smartie candy folder is a great way to promote your business, give class treats or birthday party favors and you can get 4 out of one sheet of paper (again, I modified the original design just slightly to do that). And, it's a super fast project! It's made with Copic Caboodle D Cardstock, the Stamp of the Month "Delightfully Spooky" and the Spectrum Kaleidacolor Ink pad.And, the green piece on the front is from a part that we cut off from the test tube holder so great way to use all your pieces and parts. We stamped the little "dinosaur" first and then punched him out with the 1 1/2" punch and layered it with the coordinating super jumbo scalloped punch. A little green scrapper's floss finished it off. Oh - one tip - be sure not to cover your fold with the image or your little folder won't open.

And, here's the inside - you want to use the darker ink colors on your kaleidacolor pad for this part so it will show up on the paper. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you'll continue hopping to the sites below to enjoy more Paperwings Angel Art - Fall and Halloween creativity!
