It's fall blog-hopping time!

Again, some of us angels from Paper Wings are having a fall/autumn/halloween blog hop/tour.  I don't do Halloween very well (but I do have the Spiders Are Seen set to play with which is also this month's special) so I made fall projects. I made 3 different items using Miss Moxie SWIC and matching cardstock, Give Thanks and Tag Tidbits stamp sets, Momento Tuxedo Black ink, Copic markers, black ribbon, orange scrappers floss (white colored with a Copic marker), orange sheer ribbon, assorted flowers and a purple button. 


Here is all 3 items.  I made a little card holder from a zip disk plastic holder, a card, and a gift box.


I'll start with the card. I really need to remember to write down which markers I use but I don't really have that many. And by the time I finish the project, clean up my work area, take the photos, then prepare my post....   Well, I've done forgot! LOL! Oh well.




Here's a closeup of the pumpkin. I think I'm getting the hang of shading...




Here's the little card holder.  The cards inside are 3 5/8" square. I used to have a zip drive in my previous 2 computers but not the new one.  Was told they're obsolete but I did keep all the plastic holders for the disks.


This photo shows the disk holder open and the cards.  I need to make some envies for these.


And now the cards....  I did use my Wizard,  Nestabilities Labels 1, 3, and 5, and a Mega Circle punch.  Are you waiting to see the gift box?  Here is comes...



Isn't it cool!! And the apple should give you an idea of it's size.  It's called on Origami Box and I'll be teaching it at our LSS next month and at GVR this winter.  I had the directions for quite some time and decided it would be great for this tour. Oh, I almost forgot that I also used my Scor-Pal! It's such a great tool! The directions for this is at the Scor-Pal site.  Just click on the red link...

Now for the other angels.  Please visit their blogs and leave all of us a comment as to what you think of our projects.

WOW - have you been busy - love all of the projects - especially the box - what a great idea. Love the little mini cards too. And yes I think you are getting the hang of shading - I think you have been doing a lot of practice!!!

Rita W said...

Wonderful projects! Your card is super - great coloring! I forget which Copics I use too by the time I'm done with the project! Love the box - what a unique way to give your teacher an apple!!

Angela K said...

Great projects! TFS

Heather said...

They are all awesome carol!

KellyRae said...

Great projects. The origami box is F-U-N! I like how you repurposed the 'obsolete' zip disk holders, your coloring is fab on your pumpkins and acorns (here's a tip on remembering which Copics...as you use them, put them in a separate container until you're done, you'll have all the colors used corraled in one location).

Chris said...

Wow Carol, you are on a roll! I've been enjoying your cards over on the Angel site and this blog hop feast is wonderful! Super cards and projects.

Kim said...

I also luv how you used the leaves & apple for you photo shoot!
