TE Sneak Peeks: Hangin' Out Wicked Wardrobe

Hello Crafty Friends! Today the Baker's Dozen are sneaking peeks at some spook-tacular stamp sets! Hangin' Out Witch's Wardrobe is a continuation of the Hangin' Out concept and was illustrated by Nancy. Fright Night Favors, illustrated by Taylor, is a perfect set for creating favors for your neighborhood ghouls and goblins! These sets will be available for purchase Friday, September 3rd at 8:00 am PST at TayloredExpressions.

My sample today features the Hangin' Out Witch's Wardrobe and uses the Fright Night Project Pantry. I just love everything in this kit - the paper and the ribbon - they just make my heart pitter patter or in this case glomp glomp (it's Halloween after all). Instead of making a card I thought it would be fun to create some cupcake decorations. Which meant I needed to bake some cupcakes. Good excuse, huh?

I stamped the ghostie image from the set on Choice Snow White cardstock and added a bit of color with gray Copic markers. I also added dots of Silver Pearl along the bottom edges of the ghosts using Liquid Pearls. My ghosties are stylin'!

I cut circles from the designer paper in the Project Pantry using a Circle Nestabilities and scalloped circles from the coordinating cardstock using a Petite Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. I layered them together and then glued them onto sticks for candy making using a tacky adhesive (Aleene's).

I added the ghosts using dimensionals and a little "boo" sentiment with a slightly thicker dimensional. To finish a short length of ribbon was tied around each stick.

In case you want to know: the cupcakes are chocolate cake with chocolate chips (just threw a cup or so of chocolate chips into the batter after mixing) with Fluffy Butter Frosting dyed a light green. Oh course I had to test the cupcakes (nom nom nom) and they turned out yummy! And some of those pumpkin candies I used in the first picture. Quality assurance testing at work. ;)
