Gettin’ My Halloween On + GIVE AWAY!

Hello friends!  It’s been a minute or two since my last posting as I had been sick and then totally lost my “MOJO” during that point! So I was trying to get it going again with a few Halloween projects!  I have been playing with some new Taylored Expressions goodies and I thought it would be fun to give away some TE stuff as well!πŸ˜€  Stay tuned to the end of this post!

Now how cute are all of these critters, ghouls and creeps?!  As you may remember from my last post, I had been having so much fun creating with the Taylored Expressions Create-in-Quads stencils, so I had my play with the Halloween Create-in-Quads with the makes above!  I stenciled some black, candy corn, plum punch and lime zest colors, plus I went over the lime zest with some glow-in-the-dark glitter paste.  The stencil quads make two A2 sized backgrounds as well as the cat and witch cauldron too!  There is also coordinating dies to cut out the cat and witch that I used to cut out for the second set of cards.  For all of the cards, I’ve used the TE Frame in Frame 3 dies (free from an order a while back) that was cut with some black cardstock. I’ve also used the TE Simple Strips-Halloween stamped and heat embossed with some black glitter EP and cut out with the TE Asymmetrical Simple Strips Die for each card.

The set of cards on the left were created with the stenciled backgrounds and then with the black frames, I’ve added a character from a “free with purchase” Gus & Gertie Halloween stamp set.  The bird saying “boo” is in a bat costume.πŸ˜…  I popped up the sentiment strip, bird and dog with foam tape.  I die cut the “boo” sentiment with a speech bubble die from my stash.  The ghoul card was made with the awesome TE Monster Squad die set.  I placed a piece of vellum behind the black frame so the ghoul stood out a bit more, die cut my pieces as I wanted and attached it right above the sentiment strip.  I added a green googly eye as well as a few die cut stars from silver metallic cardstock.

The set of cards on the right was put together with a couple of different unique backgrounds. On the black cat card, I used the TE Superstar Rotating Stencil and stenciled once with candy corn and only rotated once using the glow-in-the-dark glitter paste again.  I finished it by splattering black and white paint over it.  Topped it off with the black frame, the kitty and sentiment strip.  I also used some Cosmic Drip Drops for kitty’s eyes. (These were also used on the bows of the witch’s shoes too!)  For the witch background, I silver foiled one of the TE Foil It-Spiderweb panels and then ink blended some grey ink over a couple of the webs.  I then added the black frame, the witch and the sentiment strip. Lastly, I added a couple of spiders cut out with the TE Little Bits-Spiders die set.

These ghosts make me smile every time I see them with those faces!πŸ‘»  For these set of cards, I pulled out the TE G-G-G-Ghost Stamp & Stencil Combo.  I didn’t used any TE inks, but pulled out my oxide inks for an ombre looking color to make these different backgrounds. The stencil was used for the faces by heat embossing some black glitter EP over VersaMark ink through the stencil. The purple is A2 sized and the set of cards on the right as mini slim cards.  I continued using my sentiment strips that were previously used on the card sets above, but with these I’ve added a black layer that I just cut from cardstock.  I’ve also used TE Ghost Gang Die & Clear Combo set to cut out the ghosts popped up around the sentiments and stamped their faces. 

For the purple ghost card, I used the silver foil negative from the “witch spiderweb background” card and foiled a cut out TE On the Block-Boo Shadow die which was popped up with several layers of die cut black ones.  I popped up the die cut ghost over the foiled “boo” as well as the sentiment strips.

For the set of mini slim cards, I did pretty much the same style as the purple, but for the “boo” sentiment I used the TE Boo Script + Backer and die cut 2 of the sentiments with black cardstock and then heat embossed it with the black glitter EP.  I placed it over the vellum die cut backer and attached to the card front.  I popped up the ghosts and the sentiment strips with foam tape.


**GIVE AWAY!!!**

So, because I’ve placed some TE orders, I have gotten multiple sets (duplicates) of goodies!!  If you or someone you know would like to get one of these stamp sets, please let me know in the comments below! (Which one(s) you want!)  I have FOUR large rubber stamps to give away!!  Check it out….

  • Click on each photo below to enlarge if you’re on my website!

These are all background A2 sized rubber stamps. The last stamp photographed is “Winter Village Background”  which measures approx. 6.25″ x 2.5″ in size. I have TWO of the “Daises for Days” to give out.  (See the photo where it shows the clear stamp set included for stamping the flower centers.)  The “Good Hearted Background” stamp is perfect for almost any occasion just by adding a quick sentiment with it!  I also have a little “extra” to go along with each one of these to accompany the package too! 

  • If you click on the names in orange above, you can see some examples using them on the TE website for ideas!

Just leave me a comment below if you’re interested in my give away and tell me which one(s) you’re interested in by September 22nd, 2022 which is the first day of Fall for us here in the U.S.  This will give everyone time to see the post and tell a friend that might be interested too!

  25. As usual, all of your cards are cute and the colors are just wonderful…It’s good I read the other comments…Sometimes I am not sure what happens, but I miss whole sentences somehow and I’m glad Lola called attention to the bird in bat suit. I went back and found it and it is such a nice touch! You are so kind. I have to say that the village (along with artwork the link took me too) would be my pick. I was shocked to see how versatile it is…I guess that’s why I love to visit your blog and many others as well it really helps me grow in this art! Thanks for giving such details, even if I go through many duh’ moments!

  28. Wow, that is a generous start for Halloween. So many wonderful cards. I did pull a few of my
    Halloween stamps but haven’t inked up any yet. Colors and images are fabulous, lucky recipients.
    I have been making junk journals, very time consuming, but so much fun.
    I love daisies, so that would be my choice.
