Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 2

Are you ready to see another peek from another Taylored Expressions set? Today is the day to feature Spooky Expressions, another set in the Whimsical Wishes line and it will also be available for purchase tomorrow morning at 8:00 AM Pacific time, sweet! The night air is getting cool and crisp here in Colorado and soon we'll be smelling the harvest air, mmmm! That means that Halloween is right around the corner! I just love this image of the frog on the cauldron, just sitting there wondering what's brewing. I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers and then for a little unexpected punch, I added a spider brad to the cauldron, just creeping about there, or maybe he'll be dinner for that frog? The brads are part of the Spooky Expressions bundle {more about that in just a sec}. The paper and ribbon are from the Halloween Key Ingredients kit, which is super fun and includes the Eerie line of paper from Basic Grey (who can resist Basic Grey??) along with all the coordinating ribbon and embellishments!
Spooky Expressions is included in its very own bundle this month and the bundle includes:

  • Spooky Expressions stamp set
  • Halloween Key Ingredients
  • Mesh Ribbon Bundle (4 yards)
  • Bat, Spider, and Frog Brads (12)
  • Black Sparkly Fluff
  • Orange Glittered Chipboard Letters
The rest of the Baker's Dozen is showcasing both Spooky Expressions as well as another new set to be released tomorrow called Trick or Sweet II. Stop on by and check out all the fun!
