Well, today I'm back to share it's Designers choice for one last September New Release project! Yay! Except, that with all the Fabulous New Goodies this month, it was too hard to pick just one... lol So I will be sharing Two Last September Release projects instead, lol First up, I am featuring the Brand New Party Banner Cutting Plate along with the Adorable Candy Monster Petite Stamp and Die set too!...;-)
Isn't he just the Cutest Candy Monster Ever! I had lots of fun coloring him up! This little fellow was my Hubby's Favorite this release, lol, I think He's even already got one of our friends picked out to send him to as well, lol ;-)
I stamped my Darling Candy Monster with Memento Tuxedo Black onto TE's Choice Snow White CS and colored him up with my Trusty Copics. I cut him and his fun Party hat out with the help of the Included coordinating Dies and popped him up with a bit of foam tape. I framed him with the Fabulous New Party Banner Cutting Plate after cutting all but the top two rows of banners away & popping it up with a bit more foam tape as well to show how Fun and Versatile this Awesome Cutting plate is... 8-) My Mats & BG layers were created with TE's Choice Kraft CS & Simple Stories I {Heart} Summer 6x6 collection. To finish it all up I just added a bit of hemp twine to top off my Banners and a Fun Googly eye to my Sweet Candy Monster just for fun!... 8-)

Next up I am featuring the Fun New 13 Dead End Drive Die along with the Brand New Label Stacklets 5 Dies too! They just seemed to go hand in hand to me as well, lol and Definitely made it Super quick and easy to put together this set of Spooky Fun Halloween cards too! Yay! You know I am just Loving that for sure! I always send out a bunch of Halloween cards each year to friends and family and I know they are going to just LOVE these!! 8-)
I started off by creating my Spooky clouds with TE's Choice Snow White CS, my TE Cloud Border Die Template, Dusty Concord Distress ink and a small stippling brush & cut each spooky cloud panel out with the help of the New Label Stacklets 5 Dies. I popped up TE's New 13 Dead End Drive Die cuts onto them with a bit of foam tape after shading up a bit of TE's Choice Snow White CS with my trusty Copics to back them for the Moon, windows and winding pathway.
My Mats and BG Layers were created with TE's New Halloween Project Pantry Kit featuring Bazzill CS's, Doodlbug's Darling Halloween Parade 6x6 Collection and various Fun coordinating ribbons too!
To finish them all up, I stamped my Fangtastic Sentiments onto a few TE Mini Tag Die cuts with Memento Tuxedo Black and added Cute little bows created with my handy dandy Bow Easy... 8-)

We have lots more Amazing Goodies in store for you this morning, so hop on over and see... 8-)
