Taylored Expressions September Release Day: Halloween Doodles and Spider Web Cutting Plate

Hello everyone!!!  Today is the day you have been waiting for...Taylored Expressions September Release Day....and it is TE's actual  birthday...they turn 5 on the 5th!! How cool is that!!!!!! Whoohoo!!!! The store is open and all the fabulous goodies we have been showing you this week are for sale in the new products section!!!!

We are continuing with our 5th Birthday Celebration with another game, today!!!!  The game today is called *What's Different* sure to check it out on the Taylored Expressions Blog. You could be the winner of a TE gift certificate!!!!!!

I have two projects to show you today....the first is a card I made with the adorable Halloween Doodles set and the Spider Web Cutting Plate!! 

The spider web was cut out of basic black card stock using the Spider Web Cutting was adhered to patterned paper from the Halloween Project Pantry kit which includes papers from Doodlebug Halloween Parade 6x6 paper pad
The sentiment, frame, and spider all from Halloween Doodles were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White card stock. The frame was colored with a Copic marker and adhered to the green cardstock which was also cutout by hand.  It was then popped up with foam tape.  

The witches legs were cutout of Marvelous Magenta card stock with The Witch is In dies and lined with green card stock. Crystal Effects was used on the shoes and  glitter was added along with Taylor's Tiny Twinkles.  Crystal Effects was also added to the spider along with glitter and googly eyes . The cat from the Gothic Window Accessories dies was added along with Doodlebug Sprinkles and ribbon from the Halloween Project Pantry kit. 

My second project is a scrapbook page made with pictures of my Grands. Black acrylic paint was splattered and smeared on the orange scrapbook paper and the black polka dot scrap paper was glued along the side.  Halloween Doodles stamps (the BOO, spiders, Spider web, pumpkin, witches hat, sentiments, and monster) were all stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. The hat, monster, and pumpkin were all stamped on different colored cardstock, cutout, and popped up with foam tape. Papers, ribbon,  and card stock from the Halloween Project Pantry kit were used along with Doodlebug Washi Tape and Doodlebug Sprinkles.  The 13 Dead End Drive die was used with black cardstock to create the spooky was  lined with bright yellow cardstock and adhered over the picture. The Witch is In dies were used for the witches legs...they were cut out of black card stock and adhered under the picture. The twine is the finishing touch. 

I have lots and lots of Halloween pictures of the kids...I plan to make a separate scrapbook album with only Halloween pages of my children and grandchildren.  I will definitely be wearing out all the new Halloween stamps and dies!!!
