Just Add Water (TE Sneak Peek Day Three)...

to view an image up-close, please click on the photo


Just one more day until the big release at Taylored Expressions! Today we switch gears from birthday wishes to spooky witches with a spectacularly spooky new set, Fright Night Favors. This set is perfect for brewing up some Halloween treats, especially because the three frames included coordinate with a new Taylored Die, the Favor Frame. It's a nifty little tool for getting a perfect little die-cut frame and will be available this Friday.

I know that candy is the treat of choice on Halloween, but I have a some friends who try not to partake in the fattening goodies. When I saw the "Witches Brew: Just Add Water" sentiment, I thought a fun treat would be to make a decorative powdered drink tag for a re-purposed glass bottle. I began by trimming some rich purple card stock from the Fright Night Project Pantry Kit and punching a hole sized to fit the bottle's neck. Next, I stamped the cute bats in silver ink and created a little pocket decorated with patterned paper and cute little pumpkin brads included in the kit, border punching a decorative window.

I then covered a "to-go" packet of diet powdered drink, stamping this sweetly scary little spider (I drew in the web silk with a Copic Multiliner) and tied a ribbon at the top. With more patterned paper and card stock from the kit, I covered the label on the bottle, topping it off with another ribbon I found in the kit!
Lastly, I stamped and die cut the frame and sentiment, adding a few liquid dimensionals between the scallops. Now I had something to give my diet-conscious friends so they don't feel too left out on the yummiest of fall holidays!
