Hi Everyone,
We are getting a jump on Halloween at Taylored Expressions today! All of the design team are showing samples using the new Halloween stamps and dies and the Tricks & Treasts Project Pantry that will be released tomorrow! I love this Project Pantry - such cute papers and colors - and the ribbons are so fabulous!! I had so much fun creating a little pumpkin from all of the different design papers in the kit. I cut out some tiny tags from the papers and added it to the tags created using the new Totally Tags Halloween stamp set :) 

I stamped the Trick or Treat sentiment with some Tangelo ink and Grape Jelly Ink (and popped out the the purple "or" onto the orange sentiment. I cut out the scalloped circle using the scalloped tag die from the Totally Tags (set of 3) dies from Taylored Expressions. The "happy halloween" sentiment was stamped from the Totally Tags stamp set onto the orange card stock with some Grape Jelly ink that I then hung from the pumpkin:

This is such a lovely Project Pantry - I love the combination of purples and greens and oranges - and the DP is so much fun! I cut out some strips of paper from the DP and attached them at either end with some brads before fanning out the strips into a circular pumpkin shape.The leaves are hand drawn and I cut some thin strips of green card stock that I curled into some mini vines. I attached the Happy Halloween tag onto the center with the ribbon. I LOVE this little project - check out all the DP and ingredients in the Tricks and Treat Project Pantry:

 Please hop around and check out all the gorgeous creations that the DT are previewing today!

And don't forget to stop by the Taylored Expressions fan page tonight for lots of chances to win these amazing stamp set!!
Thank you for stopping by today and please stop by tomorrow for release day fun!!

Big hugs,
Sankari :)
