Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks: Sack It - Bat and You've Been Framed - Halloween

Hello everyone and welcome to day three of the Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks!! Don't you just love all the new papers, embossing folders, stamps and dies....I am blown away with this months release!!! This is such a special release, too, 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.

And what would a birthday be without a few birthday cards!!!!

This birthday card set was created with the new TE Up, Up, and Away Cutting Plate...papers from the Matched Double the Fun 6x6 paper pack and several colors of the Matched Cardstock were used: Granny Smith, Peapod, Cherry Pop, Pumpkin, Cookie Monster, Sugar Cube, and Lemon Meringue.

The balloons were all cut out using the single balloon dies from the set. They were adhered to the cutting plate balloons and the sentiments from the In and Out Birthday stamp set were used on the outside banner and....

on the inside.

The balloons were all embossed with three of the new TE Embossing Folders: Harlequin, Zig Zag, and Lots of Dots. 

Papers from the Matched Double the Fun 6x6 paper pack were used on the insides along with Matched Cardstock. 

Don't you just love the new Matched Double the Fun papers....they are all so bright and festive!!

The In and Out Birthday stamps are wonderful, too...they have several different fonts and a sentiment for everyone!!

The sentiments were all stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and....

with all the bright colors and pretty papers, no embellishments were needed!!

Now, how about a Halloween Party!!!!

Don't you just love the little Sack It - Bat....he is just perfect to hold a bag of Halloween Treats!!!

The Sack It To You die was used as the base for the Bat....I love those goofy eyes!!!

Choice Black was used for the Sack It To You bag and this bat has a red mouth.

I should have added a bow to this one to make her girly.

This set of cards and the tags feature the fun and sooo cute You've Been Framed - Halloween dies.....such adorable Halloween scenes!! 

The cards were made with the previously released Tag Stacklets 2 dies...the base was cut from Choice Black...

and the gray layer was embossed with the new TE Tangled Web Embossing Folder

The patterned paper is from the Matched Hocus Pocus 6x6 paper pack...

and the sentiments are from the new Little Bits of Halloween stamp set.  The previously relelased Pockets and Pages (What a Day) die was used to cut the banners for the sentiments. 

The tag bases were also cut with the Tag Stacklets 2  and the You've Been Framed - Halloween dies were used for the little Halloween scenes. I used the tags to hang from my Halloween tree but they could also be used on gift bags...super fun!!!
