If you've been joining us for this week's big Taylored Expressions birthday bash, you have been enjoying some great birthday projects. Today, we are changing it up a bit with some Halloween goodies! I got to play with the new Totally Tags Halloween set as well as some new spooky spider web dies! 

As soon as I saw the new stamp set, I thought the rounded tag images would make perfect "headstones" in a cemetery and I decided to create an easel card depicting a little scene. A tutorial for how to make an easel card can be found HERE.

I used the Totally Tags Dies (previous release) to easily die-cut the tags. I used the new Spiderweb Border Die to create the little webs on my card. The spiders are from the new Spiders & Spider Webs Die set and I had one of them strung on some "silk" from its tree!

No Halloween spider is complete without some creepy red eyes, which I added with some liquid dimensionals.

The sentiment is actually from one of the other adorable tags -- here I simply inked only the middle of the stamp. NOTE: Taylored Expressions is offering a Project Pantry kit this month, the Tricks & Treats kit, and, though I didn't use it on this project, I wanted to show it to you:

Stamps: Totally Tags Halloween (Taylored Expressions); Cardstock: Midnight Muse, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!); Accents: Liquid Pearls (Ranger); Fibers: Embroidery Floss (generic); Dies: Totally Tags, Spooky Fence, Cloud Border, Grass Border, Spiders & Spiderweb, Spiderweb Border (Taylored Expressions)
Don't forget tonight's reveal party on Facebook! Plus, be sure to check out the rest of the Baker's Dozen blogs for more Halloween trickery!
