Welcome to the October Pals Blog Hop where we are celebrating an early Halloween and Harvest season. This month we are sharing Halloween and fall projects using our wonderful Stampin’ Up! supplies.
You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Wendy Klein's blog at Doggone Delightful Stampin' #30 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

My project for today is a test tube holder. Once assembled, I embellished the box with DSP and Stamps from the Holiday catalog. This is project is very easy to make and can be adjusted for one or more than two test tubes. I colored the image with Stampin' Up markers and gave it a bit of a distressed look.


My second project is a center step card. For this one I used the new Wonderful Wreath bundle from the Holiday catalog but gave it a fall twist. Center step cards are pretty easy to make and are very pretty for any occasion. I added a couple of panels to the center of the card to create the illusion of a front door. I then added a brad to simulate a door knob. The entire front was then distressed with Crumb Cake ink. Thanks for looking! 
The next stop is Rae Harper-Burnet #32 on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and  I hope to see you next month.

What could be more perfect for halloween than test-tube "experiments"? Both of these projects are really cute and creative!

Love the door on your test tube holder...very cool and the purple (Blackberry Bliss) bow on the wreath.

Clever, clever. Love this project! TFS!

Love both of your projects! I've seen the test tubes used by other stampers I've followed. Would you share where you purchased them, please? I'd love to use you example to recreate.

Sweet candy holder and lovely door! I especially like how you used the Antique Brad for a doorknob!!
