RELEASE DAY -at Taylored Expressions!!!!!!!

Good Morning Everyone!

Today is release day over at Taylored Expressions - woo-hoo!!! Today is also the celebration of Taylor's one year anniversary of creating her Taylored Expressions stamp line! Congrats Taylor - you have created magic this year and it is an honor to be part of it!!!!!!! Thank you!!!! The Baker's Dozen are all hosting challenges over at the Stamp a Sweet Impression blog all day today - and every hour there will be a new challenge - complete all 13 challenges for an awesome prize (yours truly - will be hosting a challenge at 7pm PST so check out all the details here!!!! )

Today we are previewing the last set called Punchy Potions. This set is awesome - Taylor has these fabulous bottles with this stamp set that coordinates to create labels for not only the bottles - but also over the cork tops!!! How cool is that? 

Here is a gift set that I created using this new stamp set and the fun bottles. I created a holder for the bottles using the Flap Lid Favor Box from Taylored Expressions. I folded one of the lids over on one side so that it would be more like a box and then decorated the cards and the bottles with the Halloween Key Ingredients Kit (this kit is amazing - even after using so many papers for the last two days of projects - there is so much more left over! amazing!)

Here is another view of the Potion Bottles and their holder and tops:

I filled up one with purple candy corn (I am so glad there was still some left for the photo because they were definitely not that many in the box as there were when I started!) and filled the other one up with candy coated fennel (the kind you get at Indian grocery stores) 
The fun part was mixing and matching all the papers and stamps and coloring and even coloring the cork tops! SO fun!!!! And lastly - here is my "eye of newt" card - I LOVE all the sayings in this stamp set - and I decorated it with the fun spiders and bat brads! The sayings oval is cut out and popped up over the image and the image is covered with clear spica glitter so it looks very shiny in person (and of course I had to add liquid pearls -- it really is an addiction :)

I hope you have enjoyed these four stamp sets that Taylor is releasing this month. Check out all the wonderful bundles that she has created for your shopping pleasure - I LOVE all the value packed into one yummilicious bundle and trust me - they go a LOOOONG way!!! Can you believe all the Halloween yumminess with all these three yummy Halloween bundles??!!!!

Sankari, these are AWESOME! Wow girl! You are amazing!

Taylor said...

How awesome, Sankari! I love how you colored your corks to match the decor on your potions bottles...never would have thought of that myself! And I don't think I've ever seen candy corn in those colors... so fun! Are they different flavored than the regular colored candy corn?

You never disappoint, Sankari - this is pure delight!! I love the look you gave the bottles with the different candies (international candy at that!) and the colors are amazing!
