Happy Thursday!  On the menu today for the TE sneak peeks are creepy candy, witch’s brew and everything Halloween!  Taylor LOVES Halloween so you can always count on TE for some fabulous Halloween FUN!  Today the Baker’s Dozen will be previewing a full sized set (Hangin’ Out – Wicked Wardrobe illustrated by Nancy McKinney in the Whimsical Wishes line), a mini set (Frght Night Favors designed and illustrated by Taylor in the *te* line) along with a coordinating label die, a Spooky Tree A la Carte image AND the Fright Night Project Pantry.  So once again today, lots and lots to see!


The card I have to share today started with an idea for the background.  Ever since I first saw the Bubbles Big Background (introduced on Tuesday) I’ve thought there are a ton of ways to use it.  For this card I stamped it in white pigment ink on a kraft cardbase.  Then I took 2 of the little icons from Fright Night Favors (the bat and the spider) and stamped them in the large and medium circles with Brilliance black ink.  I then sponged white pigment ink all around the edges and took the tip of my Brilliance dew drop pad and applied that directly to the edges for a distressed *scary* look.

For the focal image I used the A la Carte Spooky Tree and stamped it in white pigment ink on craft.  Then I stamped part of a sentiment (“creepy”) from Fright Night Favors in the black Brilliance.  Both images were covered with clear embossing powder and heat embossed.  Next the image was die cut with Spellbinders Label 5 and with the die still in place I sponged Rich Razzleberry and then Elegant Eggplant inks.  The image was popped up on foam tape over 3 ribbons tied in knots.  The finishing touch is a row of Zva black crystals at the bottom edge of the card.  Overall, this was a really quick and easy card and I love how it turned out.

Now lets’ go see what the Baker’s Dozen has brewin’ today!

Remember that everything we are showing you will be available in the TE Store tomorrow (Friday) morning at 8am PST.  I’ll be back then for the release round-up and I hope you’ll stop back by!
