Fall Inspiration - Blog Hop with The Angel Company



Today The Angel Company is sponsoring a blog hop with a Fall theme.
As I am going through my current sets of stamps I realized that I don't really have many current "fall" or autumn sets by TAC.
But what I do have is the great set ... For All Seasons ... this set has great images for all seasons ... Including fall.


Hello Fall

So I took my favorite girl from Wonder and Joy and added the pumpkin and leaves from For All Seasons. I colored the scene with my copic markers. I sponged the sky with blue ink. I added more leaves to the sentiment band. The sentiment is from a retired SOTM set and the sentiment band is popped up on fun foam.

Enjoy ... and Happy Fall!

Step Card - Blog Hop!

Welcome to this month's Blog Hop sponsored by Paper Wings!

Paper Wings is a great community site devoted to The Angel Company.
Today we are making any card other than the normal A2 size
... and for my project I chose a step card.
To make a step card you start with a 10 1/2" x 5" piece of cardstock and then you score it at 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 4 1/4", 6", and 8 1/4".

Here is mine that is flat and scanned on my scanner .... looks cute ... but wait until you see what it looks like opened up!!!!


It's a wonderful winter scene with all of the characters from Cuddly Christmas. I even added the new GWP penguin to the fun. I cut snow hills of white .... and added snowflake punches dressed up with stickles. I colored all of the characters with my copics. The sentiment is also from the Cuddly Christmas stamp set. I just love this little scene!

Here is the card from the side!

Here is some close up of the scene showing the characters being placed in front and back of the hills and the snowflakes also being placed back and front.

ENJOY!

Oh the Places .....

Places ATC

One of the best gifts that I received when I gave birth to my son was the book "Oh the Places you will Go" ... by Dr. Suess. It was very touching and I loved reading it to Chase when he was little.

So when this new set from TAC came out (The Places You Will Go) and I realized how fun it would be to combine all of the elements ... I knew I HAD to HAVE it!

This was a little ATC that I made ... it has multiple layers, lots of paper piecing, and my favorite gems. I absolutely loved putting it together. They are for a swap that really didn't have a specified theme ... so I thought they'd be perfect ... and I have been dying to make these ... hope you like them (you know who you are!!!)

Mabelle has gone Digital!

For those of you that have been TAC fans will know the work of Mabelle R.O. Recently Mabelle announced that she has gone digital and she has a WONDERFUL etsy store.


Fabulous Fall!

This was a limited edition freebie that Mabelle gave out to her fans that read her blog during the debut. I loved her and decided to color her with Fall colors with my copics. I added some ribbon flowers and gems. The sentiment is from Mabelle's TAC set called For Someone Special. I pop-dotted the sentiment.

If you LOVE Mabelle as much as I do I hope that you check out her etsy store for more images ... they are adorable!

Welcome to the Wicked Blog Hop hosted by The Angel Company

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
It is a special day as it marks the 1st Blog Hop hosted by TAC.

I decided to make a special project and share the entire instructions with you.


Wicked Treat Holder

For today's project I used the TAC stamp set called Trick or Treaters. This stamp set has been around for a couple of years and as most of my friends and blog followers know, it is my favorite Halloween set!!!

For this project, I also will use my new and favorite tool the Scor-Buddy and will color the image with copic markers.

To start find your favorite cardstock and cut a 12" x 12" into 6" x 6" squares (note: one sheet of cardstock will make 2 boxes).

Score the square at 1 1/2" and turn 90 degrees. Score again and turn. Score again and turn. Score again and turn.

Your piece will then look like this ....

Cut the bottom scores and the top scores to the middle square.


Fold the sides up and adhere.


This is what you will end up with and this is the bottom of your box.


Now take another one of your 6" x 6" squares ......


This time START the cardstock on the 1/8" mark (do not make flush with the left side or the scor-buddy)

Score again on the 1 1/2" mark all the way around and cut on the score lines and adhere together ... just as above ... although again always start on the 1/8" line with this 6" x 6" piece.

This is now the top of your box and since you started on the 1/8" line it makes the top wider than the bottom and thus fits over the bottom.

Now that you have your box parts made ... now it's time to make your band that goes around the box. Cut a 1" x 10" strip of a coordinating cardstock.

Score this band piece at 1 7/8", 3 1/2", 6 3/4", and 8 3/8". Wrap this around the box and adhere the ends together.

Next cut a piece of white cardstock 2" x 2 1/2". This is where you will stamp your imagCheck Spellinge and you will mat that on a piece of cardstock 2 1/4" x 2 3/4"" to match your band.

Adhere this panel to the band.

These are all of the final pieces of the project.

I hope you enjoyed this project. It is a great project for your Scor-buddy or Scor-pal!
You can modify this project for Christmas or birthdays or whatever special occasion you might have!
It's a great gift just by itself ... but of course you SHOULD put something in it!!!

Now do you want to see more Wicked Cool Creations????

Thanks for stopping by and ENJOY!

Thanks!

Thankful Blossoms

I had to make a "bunch" of thank yous this weekend. And since a "bunch" of my customers bought the Limited Edition stamp set called Baby Blossom, I thought I would use the larger version called Blossoms and Blessings. Have I said that I LOVE this set yet.... LOL!

If you have yet to get your hands on this limited edition set there is still time ... now til the end of October it is ONLY $3.95 with a $30 purchase. Trust me you WILL NOT be sorry!

For this card I paired it with Ordinary Greeting sentiment and Background Soup. I colored the flowers with copics and viola!

Celebrate!

New Job!

I made this card for a friend that recently got a new job!

I used the buildings from The Places You will Go and colored them with copics and pop-dotted them. I added the dots from Background Soup and the sentiment from Thinking of You.

Inside I typed out ... "Congrats on climbing another step up the Corporate Ladder" and had a picture of a ladder.

Clean and Simple and Fast!

ENJOY!

Spooky!
Eeek!
I love all of the new bats in the new TAC set called Batty Good! This guy is all dressed up and ready to go trick-or-treating! I colored him with copics and added a cute ribbon with a bow. The sentiment is from Delightfully Spooky.
ENJOY!

Hedgehog Halloween


A few months back The Angel Company had a card call for samples for their Fall Supplement. It included samples using Hedgehog Halloween. Well unfortunately later they decided to discontinue Hedgehog Halloween ... so thus no need for samples.
Since these didn't make it I thought I would still share....


Boo!

I stamped and colored the ghost Hedgehog with Copics and pop-dotted the middle ghost. I colored the words with copics and added the ribbon.

Happy Happy Happy

For this card I again colored him using my copics and then pop-dotted the pumpkin in his hands. I used Nestabilities and added scrappers floss. I also colored some sequins from the Pearl and Gem collection with my copics and strung them on the floss for a different look.

If you like the Hedgehogs make sure you have them in your collection by 10/17 ... after this date they will be retired! .... they currently are 30% off ($12.57 ... reg $17.95)

More Stamp of the Month Samples

So by now I hope you have all checked out my samples that I created for the Stamp of the Month - Jingle Jolly.
If not ..... CLICK HERE!

There were a few more more that I submitted that were not chosen that I thought I would share ....

Jingle Ornament

I covered this frame ornament with Reece paper and then added the reindeer to the frame. I then attached bells as an extra touch.

Oh Christmas Tree

I took the ornament from the set and stamped it in the shape of a tree and then colored them with my copics. I really liked this card and it's creativity!

Jolly

I used the holly as a background here and also masked just one on the sentiment block. I added Santa, colored with copics, and Viola!!!

ENJOY!
I had a ton of fun doing all of these projects for YOU and The Angel Company!
