I have two different projects to share with you today, and first up I have a card using both the adorable new word a la carte, Trick or Treat, along with the Tricks & Treats Project Pantry Kit!

I started by cutting a piece of Choice Buttercream Cardstock included in the Tricks & Treats Project Pantry Kit with the Frame It Up 1 Taylored Die and I stamped the stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I colored the image with Copic Markers and then gave all of the letters a coating of glitter.

For embellishments I added a panel cut with the new Spiderwebs Border Taylored Die, and added a lone spider cut with the Spiders and Spiderweb Taylored Die.  As a side note, I accidentally dropped one of these on the floor, and didn't realize it.  Needless to say, I scared the bejeebers out of myself when I glanced down and thought there was an enormous bug on the floor!

Here is a closeup of the focal image.  Love this new a la carte!

Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my card:

And here is a peek at the Tricks & Treats Project Pantry Kit:

Next up I have a trio of gift bags that I adorned using the new Totally Tags Halloween set!  SO super fun!!!  Here is a look at all three of the bags together.  I stamped the tags (I went with the three circle images in the set) and cut them out using the Totally Tags Taylored Dies.  I added some crystal bling around each for some sparkle.

I cut spiderwebs with the Spiders and Spiderwebs Taylored Dies, and then popped up the spiders with Foam Tape.  I used the new Burlap Black Twine and tried to make it look like the stamped panel was hanging off part of the web.  The bags are filled with lots of candy which I have since had to hide from my children (grin).

Here is a closeup of one of the tags.  Super fun no?

Here is a closeup of one of the webs!
