Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks: A Spooky View & Halloween Doodles

Hello! Welcome to Day 2 of Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks! We are celebrating 5 years of TE with a BIG birthday bash! We'll be partying all month long and there will be lots of fun games and prizes to be won during this release week! Tonight is our preview party on Facebook @ 6 PM PST. Please join us hereAll products will be released tomorrow, Thursday, September 5, @ 8 AM PST.

I have several peeks for you today! My first one features a new addition to our window-themed stamps, A Spooky View. It coordinates with the new Gothic Window Die (and also Labels Stacklets 5 for those of you who like to add layers).

I used the spooky witch scene (one of four images) on my card above. I stamped my image on Choice Watercolor cardstock (using Ranger Archival Jet Black ink). To add color to the moon, I added color with a couple of Distress Markers and spritzed it with Ink Potion #9 to spread the colors around the moon in a water color effect.

Next up, I have a set of mini notecards using the new Bracket Notecard die. I used various images and sentiments from the newest doodle set, Halloween Doodles.

My final project is the snippet that I teased at the top of this post. I used the new Cupcake Wrap to dress up some chocolate cupcakes that I made. I added labels to the front of each cupcake. The label is part of a new set called From Me to You (more on how you can get this set for FREE below)! The sentiments are from Bag It & Tag It. I also used the Pinwheel Parade die to create a couple of pinwheels for a fun decoration. The "sticks" are Doodlebug Pixie Sticks that are so fun and come in a variety of colors. I've used Lilac and Tangerine here.

From Me to You is a petite stamp set with a coordinating label die (a $17 value). It is not currently for sale, but you can earn it for FREE with any purchase of $50 (before tax and shipping). One per customer through September 15 (or while supplies last). Here's a look at the sweet set:

My projects use patterned paper from the Halloween Project Pantry, which features paper from the Doodlebug Halloween Parade collection.
