Taylor Tuesday #1

Good morning! Today marks the first day of our new Taylor Tuesday feature where I'll be showing you something I created with my SASI cupcake stamps! We all know that Halloween is fast approaching! I've had fun checking out all the cute Halloween projects you've created with your SASI stamps, but today I want to focus on all the non-Halloween uses for the two traditionally Halloween sets. For my card, I used the ghost from the Trick or Sweet set and omitted the eyes and mouth from the image. Now it looks like a yummy cupcake dripping with chocolate frosting. I colored the image with Copic markers and set it on top of the cupcake stand from MFT's What's Up Cupcake set. I embossed the chocolate background with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and went over it with a white craft ink pad to highlight each dot. I also wanted to highlight some other creative uses for both Frightful Night and Trick or Sweet by the TE Design Team and other SASI stamp lovers:

Check out how Sharon used the house from Frightful Night for her "We've Moved" announcements: Change of Address

Terri also used the house from Frightful Night to create this cute any occasion card: From Our House to Yours

Jami used the tree and bats from Frightful Night to create this beautiful card: Fall Tree

Monika created a tutorial for her fabulous Seasons of Tree card right here on the SASI blog!

Holly got creative by masking the witch into a princess: Princess Cupcake. Julie tried the same thing with this card: Curly Haired Princess

Donna played with the kitty cupcake from Trick or Sweet on this card: Purrfect Friends

Charmaine and I were channeling the same creative thought when we both designed these Pirate Party Invitations: Taylor & Charmaine

I hope you're convinced that these Halloween stamps are versatile! I can't wait to see what wonderful non-Halloween creation you come up with next! Thanks for stopping by today!
