Paper Wings Fall blog hop

Hello everyone! Paper Wings is sponsoring a Fall blog hop to showcase some of The Angel Company's new Fall inspired stamps! Of course Halloween themed stamps are huge right now, too!

Here are my fall themed cards.

This one is a 4 x 4 square note card. Stamps are from the Pick of the patch set. The duck is colored with Copic markers. Black and marigold cardstock (caboodles) is from TAC. I used the nestabilities circle and tag dies to cut everything out.

This is one of the new Halloween sets available from TAC right now called Batty Good. Bats are colored with a C3 copic marker. The bat's ears (OMG, I mean wings) are done using a black prismacolor pencil and I used a YG11 on its eyes. Satin ribbon colored with copic markers and then tied into a double bow using the bow easy. Circle cut out using spellbinders circle nestability.

The pumpkin from Give Thanks is used on this card. Colored with Copic markers. All cardstock is from the caboodles sets from The Angel Company. Square, Oval and labels 8 nestabilities dies are used to make this card. The satin ribbon is colored with Copic markers and tied into a very small double bow. The scalloped border is done using a EK success border punch.

Here are the Angels that are participating in this blog hop.

Okay - I wasn't so much liking the bat set but after seeing this it makes me want the set. This is just too cute and love all the extra details you put on each card, the double bow, border punch and the coloring is super.
