Spooky Sweets (TE Release Day!)...

Mwah-ha-ha-ha-ha! ! It's Release Day and it's a Birthday Bash at Taylored Expressions! We hope you have enjoyed this week's preview of all the scrumptious goodies releasing today. If you missed my sneaky peekies, just visit these posts, HERE, HERE, and HERE. Today, I've got one more project to share with you featuring the spookily delicious Fright Night Favors stamp set, the Fright Night Project Pantry kit and the new Favor Frame Taylored Die. Plus, keep reading for some fantastic deals and prizes in celebration of the TE anniversary!


Starting today, TE will offer one of the cutest favor containers I've ever seen: Taylored Tubes! They are just perfect for filling with yummy treats. Plus, they coordinate perfectly with the Friday Night Favors set to create adorable labels. For this spooky project, I thought I would begin with a card and box set. I found this fun coffin template and made one from the black card stock included in the Fright Night Project Pantry kit ~ and what better to house a vial of "Vampire Vaccine"?


After assembling the coffin, I used a silver metallic pen to draw in some spider webs for the creepily cute spiders I stamped on in silver ink. Then, I used the stitched border from the brand new Borderlicious stamp set along the coffin lid. I love how versatile that set is! I then lined the inside of the coffin with some of the frighteningly fun patterned paper included in the kit. The colors are so bright and vibrant I decided to carry them on, and, after filling the coffin with a bit of fiberfill, I lined it with some luscious purple felt.


I stamped one of the tube-friendly labels on an adhesive sheet, along with a little black bat, coloring with Copic markers. I used the Favor Frame die to cut it out and adhered it to the test tube lickity split. Next, I stamped the cool label sentiment in black Memento ink, border punched it, and matted it with more of the coordinating patterned Pantry paper and a little black bat brad. I attached it to a silky purple ribbon (yep, that's in the kit, too!) with a tiny safety pin. I filled the tube with some orange-flavored Nerds (a big thanks to my hubby for picking them out of the mix, though I did notice I was a few short and his tongue was an interesting shade of orange!)


I finished off with a little card, which I cut from black card stock in a coffin shape to match. I again drew on a silver web and stamped two more of the Fright Night sentiments. My favorite is the line: "Eat at your own risk." I discovered the skull and orange gemstone inside the Pantry kit, making for a scary card topper that might just make the recipient of this spooky treat wonder which is worse: the curse or the cure? BOO!
