Tis the Season for Joy! TE sneak peek Day #1

Hello everyone, Happy Monday!

Welcome to Day #1 sneak peek of Taylored Expressions October release. This release is all about Christmas themed products. There are stamp sets, coordinating dies, stand alone dies and cutting plate, Stencil, new cardstocks, new inks and many more.

As always, I showcase two new products per day until Thursday. So get your wish list and enjoy the sneak peeks.

The first product I am showcasing is called Foil It Cardstock Christmas Sentiment. This is a sheet of Christmas Sentiment which can be foiled. I have a scallop circular card using one of the sentiment from the sheet.

I foiled the Joy sentiment from the sheet using gold foil and die cut the sentiment using one of stitched circle die from Stitched Circle Stacklets. I then layered a scallop heavyweight vellum circle behind it. I die cut the scallop vellum using one fo the die from the new Petite Scallop Circle Stacklets.

For the card, I die cut two scallop circles from the new Petite Scallop Circle Stacklets. ONe using TE gold foil cardstock and the other using Sugar Cube cardstock. I scored the top of the Sugar Cube scallop circle die cut and glued the top area of the scored line to the gold foil scallop circle die cut to make a circular card base.

For the layer on top of the circular base, I stamped the Buffalo Plaid background stamp in black on Watermelon cardstock and die cut using the largest stitched circle die from Stitched Circle Die Stacklets. I then adhered the vellum sentiment layer on top using foam adhesives. Finally to embellish the card, I added a large ribbon and gold twine bow on top of the card.


The second product I am showcasing today is a background stamp called Twiggy. I paired this background stamp with HandLettered Holiday stamp set to make a set of cards.

I white heat embossed the Twiggy background stamp on four Sugar Cube cardstock panels using TE white detailed embossing powder. Then die cut all the panels using the largest of the stitched rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets. Then I sponged each panel with two shades of each colour. I used distress inks in Barn Door and Candied Apple for red, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch for the blue, Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the green and Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry for the pink. The two shades adds depth to each of the card.

For the sentiment I white heat embossed all the four sentiments from HandLettered Holiday stamp set  on TE heavyweight vellum. Then used the second largest scallop oval die from the new Petite Scallop Oval Stacklets to die cut them out and adhered on the centre of the background panel. I adhered the panel to Sugar Cube card base using foam adhesive and embellished with white Nuvo crystal drops.

Below are the photos of the individual cards and closeup.
