Today’s peeks are all about Halloween which is Taylor’s favorite stamping holiday.  I’m not big on Halloween, but I must say that both of the full sized sets we are showing today are super cute and really fun to play with.  My sample features Fangtastic illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line.

I just love this fun haunted house image.  As a kid, I remember spending hours with my best friend drawing haunted house pictures to put up in our front windows at Halloween time.  And for some reason I’ve always been drawn to all sorts of house stamp images.  I know it’s not politically correct in the stamping world to say this at the moment, but I’ve got to be honest and say that sometimes I get tired of coloring with Copics.  There I said it.  Waiting to see if lightening strikes…  OK then…  For this card I decided I wanted to do some watercoloring, so I heat embossed the image using black pigment ink and kaleidascope embossing powder on confetti white cardstock.  I watercolored with Derwent pencils and an aquapainter.  It was fun to go back to watercoloring for a change.

The moon was created by punching a circle out of a piece of cardstock and placing that cardstock over my image panel.  I dabbed on Versamark ink through the hole and then stamped the bat image before embossing with clear embossing powder.  Then I sponged peach and saffron ink around the moon.  I masked the house and sponged gray and plum ink to create the dark moody sky.

I used Karen’s Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC132) turned on it’s side for the layout of this card.

The cardstock and patterned papers are from the Spooky Project Pantry being introduced today.

Taylor is doing something a little different this month with the Project Pantry.  As you know, the idea behind the Project Pantry is that when you want to bake up a yummy dessert you head to your pantry for the ingredients.  When you want to create a sweet papercrafting project, you can head to our Project Pantry for all the coordinating elements.  We’ve found that some of the best cake and cookie recipes are the ones based around a basic batter or dough recipe with lots of options to spice it up according to your tastes.  This month we are offering our Basic Recipe Kit along with optional Spice It Up Ingredients that you can pick and choose from to build the kit just the way you want it.

The Spooky Project Pantry Basic Recipe Kit is $11.95 and includes:

Echo Park Apothecary Emporium 6×6 pad

10 sheets of 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock in coordinating colors

6 yards of ribbon (2 yards each of 3 different styles)

Optional Spice it Up Ingredients (choose any or all) are:

Black Sparkly Fluff

Black/White Enamel Accents

Orange Rhinestones (used on my sample)

Black Pearls (used on my sample)

Halloween Button Assortment

Spooky Cardstock Pack

Spooky Ribbon Bundle

When you go to the Spooky Project Pantry in the store on Thursday you will see the optional items linked under the Basic Recipe kit, so you can pick and choose what you’d like to add to your cart.  We know you’ll have fun customizing your kit!

And now let’s see what the Baker’s Dozen has cooked up with the Project Pantry and the two new Halloween sets:

Thanks for stopping by.  Tomorrow is all about Autumn!
