Hello Friends. I know some of you don't "do" Halloween, but for those who do, Taylored Expressions has some darling new Halloween stamps and dies. Let me share them with you today.
Gone Batty --How cute is this?
This combo set has a bat stamp with your choice of 6 different faces plus a die to cut the bat out. Three cute sayings complete the set.
For this card I created the background using the TE Cloud Border die as a stencil with purple and gray dye inks. Be sure to notice the different faces on each bat -- too clever. Oh, I just had to add the googly eyes!!
A simple card that shows off the new TE paper Pad "Haunted" well. I paper pieced the bat and cut the Spooky Clouds from another of the papers.
For Trick or Treat gifts, TE's new Tagging Along die is perfect. Cut it out twice and assemble it together with glue or tape and you've got a very cute little box to hold all kinds of treats. And the best news? Use it for any holiday or party when you need favors. TE's Tag Stacklets 1 makes perfect layers for decorating your box.
Here are two samples:

Trick or Treat Witch Hat – Taylored Expressions stamp and coordinating die set Critters in Costume; TE Little Bits die Witch Hat; Impression Obsession die Spider and Spider Web; Memory Box die Scary Spiders; design inspired by Taylor VanBruggen
For this card I die cut the Starry Night die from white cardstock then inked it with Memento inks Teal Zeal and Paris Dusk using a jumbo dauber. I cut a piece of white cardstock just slightly smaller than this piece and inked the center with Memento Dandelion and Cantaloupe leaving the outside uninked so some stars would be white while others were yellow and others gold. I stamped the jack-o-lantern, colored it with Copic markers and cut it out. It is sitting atop the Spooky Fence. After the card was assembled, I painted the pumpkin's teeth with Ranger's white Enamel Accents!
This is one cute kitty!
Here's the whole crew in their colorful costumes all ready for a night out trick or treating! Love the dog in costume and the pirate kitty!
