TE October Sneak Peeks - Mitten Garland and Seasonal Trees
Welcome back for Day 3 of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions! I hope you've been enjoying all the sneak peeks so far! Today I have two more projects to share with you. The first uses the Mitten Garland. The Mitten Garland is an adorable new die set that contains the mitten, a cuff, a snowflake and a sentiment!
I created a "pocket mitten" that either a gift card or candy cane could be stuffed in. Once I die cut the mitten, I used the NEW Sweater Weather Cutting Plate and embossed the mitten, then brayered ink all over it. I love that it makes it look like a material pattern! The snowflake was die cut a few times out of a cereal box and then layered, making a "chipboard" snowflake. I added the cuffs and ribbon to hang the mitten and stuffed it with some filler so it's ready to add a gift. NOTE: The white tip of the thumb was just a piece I die cut with the mitten die and then cut to fit the thumb. I thought it matched the cuff well, but the "real" reason I put it there is because the cutting plate wasn't wide enough to emboss the whole thumb, so I covered that spot! ;)
The second project I have today uses the Seasonal Trees Die along with the Evergreens Die. I think these dies go together so well! I started by diecutting the Seasonal Trees out of Oreo cardstock. Then I die cut it again out of Chocolate Truffle, but cut off the border portion since I wanted the border to be black. Next, I added Liquid Pearls all over the trees.
Once that was dry, I die cut and added the icicle border using the Ice Border Die. Finally, I die cut the evergreens using the Evergreens Die in Peapod and Granny Smith cardstock. I added them to the scene with some foam tape and added Liquid Pearls to them too. The sentiment is from the Shiny & Bright set.
