Taylored Expressions October Release: May Your Days Be Merry And Bright

Thursday, October 5, 2017

Happy Release Day Taylored Expressions Fans,

All the goodies you have been eyeing all week are now available. Today, I am sharing with you my last two projects featuring: Iconic Wishes-Christmas, Merry Mail 2, Sweet Season and Santa and Friends.

 The Iconic Wishes-Christmas is a perfect stamp and die combination for making simple, but elegant Christmas cards. To create this card, I inked the Christmas ornament with Cherry Pop dye ink and stamped onto Sugar Cube cardstock. The additional shaker ornaments were created using the Ornament Overlays and Ornament Accessories with the new TE Silver Foil. The ornament shaker material uses Taylored Expressions Snow Flurries and Wedding sequins along with silver microbeads. To complete the card, I heat embossed the Sugar Cube background using the Snow Day Background stamp with white embossing powder. And a simple poinsettia flower is the finishing touch.

Decorating your handmade card's envelope is a perfect finishing touch. To create the envelope seen, I used the new Merry Mail 2 stamp set stamped with Oreo ink onto a Sugar Cube envelope. I then colored the envelope with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens for a festive Christmas look.

The second cards uses the new Sweet Season stamp and die combination paired with Santa & Friends.

To create this card, I started by dry embossing a piece of Sugar Cube cardstock using the Peaceful Poinsettia embossing folder. The candy pieces were stamped using Cherry Pop ink onto Sugar Cube cardstock and then die cut with the combination die and used as shaker material for the mason jar. The cute elf adds sweetens the deal on this fun shaker card. A stamped sentiment completes this card.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope the design team has inspired you to create your Christmas cards this year. For more information on participating designers and a full listing products, visit the Taylored Expressions Blog.
