EEK! I’m so excited to share with projects using the Halloween Release from Taylored Expressions. Halloween is one of my favorite crafting holidays and this release has so many Spooktacular cardmaking goodies!!
The Stack-O-Jacks Stamp, Stencil and Die is just the cutest and it looks adorable peeking through a Spooky Trifold Mini Slim window. To create the Oreo/Black Trifold pane, I cut an 8.5×11 piece of Oreo Cardstock to 6 x 10.5 inches and scored at 3.5 inches on either side. Then I used the Square Mini Slim Trifold Template+Dies to create Square Windows for the pumpkins to peek through.
For the front of the Trifold card, I used the Mini Slim Spiderweb Stencil with Poppy Seed Ink and added a Tropical Punch Happy Halloween white heat embossed Stitched Rectangle Sentiment.
The second inside panel was decorated with an Orange Glitter Cardstock Square Frame (created using the Square Trifold Dies) & Boo Script die cut plus sparkly Bits & Pieces Halloween Stars & Sparkles.
For the inside panel, I heat embossed the Twinkle Twinkle background with the new TE Fine Detail Black Sparkle Embossing Powder and then adhered the Stack-O-Jacks image and Simple Strip Halloween “You’re Spooktacular” Sentiment. Doesn’t that starry night looks so cool with the Black Sparkle Embossing powder, I wish my photo had sparkle vision.
For the stenciling, I used only one ink color: Candy Corn with less pressure for the lighter pumpkins and more pressure+ink color for the darker pumpkins. For the faces and hat I used Poppy Seed Ink and filled in the leaves with a green Copic marker. For the finishing touch, I add googly eyes to the second pumpkin in the stack.
Tip Trick: I try to clear heat emboss all my stenciled black ink impressions so the black ink doesn’t run into the ink blended colors. I usually stamp all my stenciled images with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. When using Oreo Ink (rather than Clair which is a slower drying pigment ink), I make two impressions (to add a little extra ink for the embossing powder to hold on to) and immediately heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

Trick or Treat Stack-O-Jacks
My second Stack-O-Jacks was ink blended with all the oranges: Candy Corn, Pumpkin, Sweet Potato + for extra shading some Plump Punch and Oreo for the faces/hat. For a little extra sparkle, I added Dark Matter Stickles to the Witches Hat and googly eyes to the second pumpkin.
I added the Stack-O-Jacks to a vellum mini slim rectangle and one of the Create-in-Quads-Halloween Background panels created with Tropical Punch, Passion Fruit, Poppy Seed and Candy Corn Ink. The sentiment was white heat embossed on Passion Fruit cardstock and die cut using a Square Stitched Stacklet.

Trick or Treats Halloween Candy Capsules
I LOVE the Stack-O-Jacks sentiments so much that I white heat embossed Happy Halloween to several fun Halloween cardstock colors and die cut them with the Rectangle Stitched Stacklets.
After folding and adhering the capsules together, I adhered the Happy Halloween sentiments to one side of the Candy Capsules. I also added the cute ghosts from Ghost Gang Die & Clear Combo to the sentiments and small little tags (the ghosts fit perfect on the smaller Tags and Itty Bitty Tags too). The capsules were finished with ribbon and twin to secure all the yummy candies inside.

Trick or Treat Halloween Monster Squad
Oh My Spooky Googly Eye Sweetness these Monsters are SO CUTE!! For my card, I started by die cutting the Monster Squad bodies, horns antennas is all the Halloween Colors: Cookie Moster (of course), Sweet Potato Pie, Lollipop, Key Lime and Plum Punch. Then the eye, teeth and mouths in Oreo and Sugar Cube Cardstock. Then I had fun putting all the different pieces to create each individual monster with liquid adhesive and adhered them to a mini slim panel.
To finish each of the Monsters, I added Googly eyes from my stash and the perfect sentiment strips for these hungry goofy monsters in white embossed Tropical Punch & Sweet Potato Pie.
