Happy Holidays! TE sneak peeks Day #3

Hey everyone,

Hope you have enjoyed the sneak peeks for past couple of days. Today is Day #3 of Taylored Expressions October Release. As always I will showcase two new products. The first one is a die called Woodland Silhouette 2. There is a Woodland Silhouette 1 die as well. But I am showcasing the bear die from the Woodland Silhouette 2 die set. This set also has a moose die. Anyway, here is my card using the bear die in the set.

This is a simple card which can be mass produced as well. I used the new Sea Salt cardstock for the background panel upon which I added snow texture using the new Snow Flurry stencil and white embossing paste. I also used the new Snow Drifts die to create snow mounds on the bottom of the panel using Sprinkles cardstock.

With the focal point which is the Woodland Silhouette 2 die Bear, I die cut using Suagr Cube cardstock and sponged Gathered Twigs and Vintage Photo on the die cut. Then I used the Little Bits Christmas Confetti and Little Bits Santa Hat die to sponge Barn Door distress inks and add scarf and hat to the bear. I also added a wreath from the Little Bits Christmas Confetti die and decorated it with red rhinestones.

The sentiment is from Simply Said Christmas stamp set which I silver embossed using TE silver detailed embossing powder on a strip of Watermelon cardstock. I also used the smallest Doubled Ended Flag die to add fish tail banner on either ends of the sentiment strip and adhered below the focal bear die cut. I adhered this completed panel to the Sugar Cube card front and embellished with TE Christmas sequins to finish off the card.


The second new product I am showcasing today is a die called On the Road-Station Wagon. This is a very cute die. I normally don’t like small fiddly pieces to assemble, so I put off making this card to the last. But once I started die cutting and assembling the station wagon, I got hooked to it because it is so darn cut. I used TE watercolour cardstock to die it and coloured using TE liquid watercolor. Here is the full card.

I sponged the new Sea Salt dye ink on the new Brick by Brick stencil on Sea Salt panel to get tone on tone effect on the background. Then I stamped the new Pine Bough background stamp using the new Cilantro dye ink on Sugar Cube cardstock and die cut using the coordinating die. I adhered this pine Bough die cut on top of the Sea Salt panel using foam adhesive. On the bottom of the panel I adhered the On the Road Station Wagon die cut again using foam adhesives.

To add some snow to the card front, I spattered some copic Opaque white all over the panel. The sentiment is from On the Hinge Merry stamp set which I white heat embossed using TE white detailed embossing powder on to a strip of Watermelon cardstock. I adhered this strip above the station wagon die cut using foam adhesive. This completed panel is adhered to a Watermelon card base. To finish off the card, I added some white Nuvo crystal drops. This ties in all the while elements on the card and brings the whole card together.
