Good morning! Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks for the October Release at Taylored Expressions! The actual release takes place this Thursday, October 1st, but we've got a lot to show you before then! ;) I have two projects to share today. The first uses the NEW Simply Stamped - Pinecones set along with the Simply Stamped - Pinecones Dies!
This is fun new set, and just like the previously release Simply Stamped line, there is multi-step stamping so that you end up with a 3 dimensional image! I used three different shades of brown ink for my pinecones. The papers are from the NEW Build a Scene Christmas Matched Kit. If you notice, the background is embossed with the NEW Holly Embossing Folder. Another exciting new product that is releasing Thursday are the Stitched Circle Stacklets, which is what I used to die cut the red circle. To finish my card, I added some NEW Build a Scene Christmas Sequins!
The second project I have to share uses the NEW Picture Perfect Horizontal Die Set. This die set is a fun new way to create picture Christmas cards!! I used it to create a shaker card, though. There is a large die (which I've used) and a smaller frame die in the set. I die cut the frame twice. . .once out of some patterned paper from the Build a Scene Christmas 6x6 Paper Pack and once out of some Cherry Pop cardstock and then just cut the "Merry Christmas" part and adhered it over the other.
The inner parts of the shaker were created using the NEW Build a Scene Central Park Dies as well as the Little Bits - Snowflake Confetti and Little Bits - Reindeer. So, you don't have to use these dies JUST for photo cards!!
