Taylored Expressions October Release Now Available – Tis the Season

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve enjoyed the Taylored Expressions‘ October release previews over the last several days. All new stamps and dies are now available in the TE store. Before you head over, I have two more samples to share.

First, I used Santa & Friends with new Tree Shaker die set.

After sponging a bit of Cupcake ink into the center of my card, I die-cut the tree from green dotted paper (from Rainbow Brights paper pack), Granny Smith card stock and from a foam adhesive sheet. I assembled the tree, dropped in some Queen & Company Pops and Fimo Fun, then covered with acetate and the Granny Smith frame.

Copic markers – C00, C1, C5, C7, E00, E01, E11, R83, R85, RV32

The star was cut from a foam sheet and then new Gold Foil card stock and positioned above the tree. I adhered Santa’s head to the bottom right of the tree then positioned his body below, accordingly. Little Bits Snowflake Confetti finished off the wintery scene.

To quickly and easily decorate a coordinating envelope, I stamped and white embossed the label shape from new Merry Mail 1 stamp set.

My second card was super simple, but as simple as it is, that’s how much I love it. I adore the new Nativity Cutting Plate.

I lightly sponged a background using Sprinkles ink, concentrating more color toward the bottom.

The scene was die-cut from Toffee card stock with a small sentiment stamped from new Sleigh Bouquet. The star above the manger is from new Build a Scene Nativity.

On a sad note, this will be my last release with Taylored Expressions. Life has gotten very busy and I felt it was time to cut back on my crafting responsibilities. I’ll still be using TE product, just not as part of the design team.

Thanks so much for visiting!
