Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Day 3

Today the Baker's Dozen is getting a little spooky with sneak peeks of two new Halloween sets, Hangin' Out-Wicked Wardrobe and Fright Night Favors (which has a coordinating Taylored Die). Everything will be available at Taylored Expressions on Friday, September 3rd from 8am PST.

For my card today I worked with Hangin' Out-Wicked Wardrobe, which is part of the Whimsical Wishes line and illustrated by Nancy McKinney. There are so many fun images I had a difficult time narrowing down my ideas! Gotta love it when that happens!!! But I couldn't get the little ghost out of my mind...I kept thinking how cute he would be trying to dress up like a witch. I know ghosts aren't supposed to be cute, but seriously, this little guy is darling!!!

All the papers and embellishments are from the Fright Night Project Pantry with the exception of the googlie eyes...they're from my stash. I used the Bubbles Big Background stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black for the background and I'd originally thought of adding googlie eyes to the smaller circles on the background. But then I used the Border Taylored Die on a strip of black and had an ah-ha moment...the googlie eyes fit perfectly in the circles of the scallops...hooray!!! I love that little border of eyeballs all going in different directions...cracks me up!

I know you'll see plenty more fabulously spooky creations using Hangin' Out-Wicked Wardrobe, Fright Night Favors and the Fright Night Project Pantry as you hop through the Baker's Dozen blogs today.


I'll be back tomorrow with another fun creation for release day!
Thanks for stopping by!
