Hi there! It's time! Everthing you've been seeing over the past few days is NOW AVAILABLE in the TE Store!! I do have another project to share with you today! It uses the NEW Build a Scene - Winter Trees dies. Build a Scene - Winter Trees is a fun set that helps you create a scene. For my card, I paired it with the Critters on Ice set to create this little iceskating scene.
I started by stamping and coloring the polar bear. Then I covered the polar bear in Glossy Accents and let him dry. This provided a way for me to "mask" the bear and add an inked background. Once the bear was dry, I sponged on Picked Raspberries, Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks. After that, I flicked water onto the paper and it gave those white spots that almost look like falling snow. I cut around the bottom of the skate so that I could tuck the "ice" from the Build a Scene - Central Park Dies under the skate and give the appearance that the bear is actually ON the ice. The trees completed the scene as well as the snow that was added using Liquid Applique.
Thanks for visiting! If you'd like to see more projects and new product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete list of our participating designers! Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY SHOPPING!!

Welcome back for another day of sneak peeks for the October Release at Taylored Expressions! I hope you're enjoying all of the sneak peeks! I have two more projects to share today! The first uses the NEW Critters on Ice! This set is absolutely adorable! I created my card with the moose image.
I started by embossing the background with the NEW Nordic Holiday Embossing Folder. Then I created a shaker using the Picture Perfect - Horizontal die. This is the smaller die in the set. I added some Build a Scene Christmas Sequins inside the shaker. The moose was stamped, colored with Copic markers and then die cut using the coordinating Critters On Ice Die Set and adhered to the outside of the shaker element.
My second project for today uses the NEW Peek-a-Boo Squares. Peek-a-Boo Squares is just like the previously released Peek-a-Boo Circles. I used it here with some new Little Bits dies! Again, I made a shaker element by using the Peek-a-Boo Squares and filling them with snowflakes that were die cut using the Little Bits - Snowflake Confetti die.
On each "window" I added an element. . .Little Bits - Snowman, Little Bits - Tis the Season and Little Bits - Reindeer. The sentiment and snowflakes that are stamped on the card are from the NEW Peek-a-Boo Christmas set.

Welcome back for Day 2 of the October Sneak Peeks! I hope you are enjoying what you're seeing! I have two more projects to share with you today! The first uses the NEW Roly Poly - Santa. The new die line of Roly Poly are made to be built on a 3 inch circle, which is included in the NEW Stitched Circle Stacklets. I used the NEW Season's Greetings Banner Die for the sentiment.
Isn't this Roly Poly Santa the cutest? Actually, all of the Roly Polys are CUTE!!! I die cut the pieces out of Cherry Pop, Sugar Cube, Oreo, Strawberry Milkshake and Cupcake cardstock. On the inside of the card I used a sentiment from the NEW In and Out - Christmas set and "prettied" it up with some Little Bits - Christmas Confetti.
My second project for today uses the NEW Eventful - Holidays set. I used some papers from the Build a Scene - Christmas Matched Kit. The sentiment was stamped and embossed in white. The little "village" was die cut using the NEW Night Before Christmas Die. I thought these would make fun and simple invitations to a Christmas party!
Inside, I used the previously released RSVP as well as other sentiments from the Eventful - Holidays set.

Good morning! Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks for the October Release at Taylored Expressions! The actual release takes place this Thursday, October 1st, but we've got a lot to show you before then! ;) I have two projects to share today. The first uses the NEW Simply Stamped - Pinecones set along with the Simply Stamped - Pinecones Dies!
This is fun new set, and just like the previously release Simply Stamped line, there is multi-step stamping so that you end up with a 3 dimensional image! I used three different shades of brown ink for my pinecones. The papers are from the NEW Build a Scene Christmas Matched Kit. If you notice, the background is embossed with the NEW Holly Embossing Folder. Another exciting new product that is releasing Thursday are the Stitched Circle Stacklets, which is what I used to die cut the red circle. To finish my card, I added some NEW Build a Scene Christmas Sequins!
The second project I have to share uses the NEW Picture Perfect Horizontal Die Set. This die set is a fun new way to create picture Christmas cards!! I used it to create a shaker card, though. There is a large die (which I've used) and a smaller frame die in the set. I die cut the frame twice. . .once out of some patterned paper from the Build a Scene Christmas 6x6 Paper Pack and once out of some Cherry Pop cardstock and then just cut the "Merry Christmas" part and adhered it over the other.
The inner parts of the shaker were created using the NEW Build a Scene Central Park Dies as well as the Little Bits - Snowflake Confetti and Little Bits - Reindeer. So, you don't have to use these dies JUST for photo cards!!
