Its the release day!

Finally, it is the day you are waiting for! Today is the release day for Taylored Expressions October Release. All the new release Christmas products are now available for purchase from Taylored Expressions Store.

Today I am showcasing two new products. The first one is called Winter White stamp set. I used the  snowflakes images in the stamp set to white heat emboss on watercolour paper and did some watercolouring on the background.

I used Distress inks – Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean to watercolour the background. Then I also used Distress Oxide in the same colours to layer. Finally I sponged Faded Jean Distress Oxide ink on the edges of the panel and also coloured the insides of the snowflakes using the same colour. The snowflakes also needed some shimmer for which I used Gansai Tambi Starry Night Champagne colour. The sentiment is from Snowed in Saying stamp set which I white het embossed on Oreo cardstock, trimmed and adhered using foam adhesive. For a bit more dimension and bling, I added some sequins from Snow Flurries sequins collection and White Blizzard crystal drop from Nuvo.

 All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.

The second products I am showcasing today is a die set. This is an accessory die set called Sitting Pretty Holiday Accessories. This die set goes with By the Fireside die to create holiday themed mantle decoration over the fireplace. I love the Sitting Pretty series. Absolutely awesome series to create gorgeous mantle decor scene. I decided to use the die set on its own to create a Christmas card.

I masked and sponged a background on my card front. The inks I used are TE dye inks – Lemon Meringue, Cookie Monster and Blue Corn. Then I die cut the Sitting Pretty Holiday Accessories using Oreo cardstock. I stacked and glued three of the sleigh, snowman and deer die cuts and brush clear shimmer over it. The trees are single die cuts adhered flush. The snow mound is die cut using white glitter paper. The stacked glued elements give dimension to the scene. The sentiment is from Santa and Friends stamp set. I also added some details like stars using white and glitter pens as well as sequins and Nuvo white blizzard crystal drops.

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.
