It's a FALL Blog Hop

Welcome to another Paper Wings blog hop featuring FALL creations using products from The Angel Company. Not everyone makes Halloween cards so for this hop we could make creations for fall and back to school as well. I enjoy making Halloween cards though so went with that for my stuff :)


For my card I used a new set, Spiders Are Seen as well as a variety of other stamps to make my "scene".
I stamped the corners using the awesome background stamp in the set with Staz-on white. Not sure you can tell but I stamped the chandelier with black ink and then embossed it using black embossing powder. I then sponged it with Cognac & Black ink. For the bat I did the same thing but only on black cardstock and then cut it out. I folded the wings and placed a few pop dots under them to give them some dimension. I'm usually a cutesy kind of stamper so this is pretty cool for me - IMO, of course :)


Next up, I did a cutesy creation - using the same stamp set, I took the CA-ute frog image and made a broach to wear during Halloween. I work at a Preschool so wanted something that wouldn't scare the kids, lol!


I forgot to add a sentiment with the image so used Staz-on Black to stamp it directly on the glass. Here's a close up of the CA-ute (yes, I'm saying it again, LOL) frog:

He is colored with pencils and OMS and then embossed using Transcendence Embossing powder and a VersaMark pen. After that I spritz the image with the Shimmer Sparkle spray. The spray wouldn't dry on the embossed portion so I just wiped over it so the shimmer would be on the white area...it's pretty cool IRL.

Hope you enjoy my creations and am glad you stopped by!Now hop on over to the other Angel blogs to see their FALL creations:

The bat looks as if he is ready to fly right off your card. I like the background stamped in white.
LOL, that frog is CA-ute, everytime I see him that is what I say to myself. LOL The kids are going to like see you wear him. I bet before Halloween it has a million little fingerprints on it. =)
