Taylored Expressions September Release: Full Moon and Spooky Trees Cutting Plate

Hello is the day we have all been waiting's Release Day at Taylored Expressions...WOOT!!! Today is the day all the fabulous products you have been seeing for the last three days are available for you have your wish list completed?? We have been celebrating this week because....

It’s TE’s sixth birthday!
· To celebrate, along with new stamps and dies, we are releasing our very own line of patterned paper and coordinating cardstock, as well as our own Embossing Folders.
· Visit the TE Blog for a fun sketch challenge with a $250 prize gift certificate.

To celebrate our 6th year, we've designed a special party favor, Think Happy Thoughts. This petite stamp set includes a very "happy" coordinating die and will be FREE with orders over $50 beginning on September 11th - September 21st. One free set per customer, while supplies last.

My first card features the adorable Halloween stamp called Full was colored with Copics and the clouds in the background were sponged on with gray ink. 

The background papers are from the Matched Hocus Pocus 6x6 paper pack and the bats were cutout of Choice Black using the bat dies from the Spooky Tree Accessories die set. A little sewing was done along the side and the Hocus Pocus Matched Sequins and twine finish it off. 

My second card features several of my favorite dies from this release....the trees were cutout of Choice Black cardstock using the Spooky trees Cutting Plate. The trees were  adhered to a piece of TE Pumpkin cardstock and the sentiment from the Big Bold Halloween set was stamped on a piece of TE Corn Candy cardstock  that was cutout with a round die. 

Several Little Bits dies were used to complete the scene: Little Bits - Ghosts, Little Bits - Haunted House, and the Little Bits - Halloween Scene was used for the bats and tombstones. The Hocus Pocus Matched Sequins and the twine are the finishing touches.
