taylored expressions - october sneak peeks day 2

*Please note that I have posts going up all this week for both the Taylored Expressions and The Greetery's October releases. Make sure to check out all of the Christmas inspiration I have to share with you!


Hi, everyone, and welcome to day 2 of sneak peeks for the October release at Taylored Expressions! Today I have a more Christmas themed projects to share with you created with products from the new release. Both projects definitely have a woodland/nature theme to them and I am so excited to share them with you!

All of the new products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on October 3rd, 9AM CT at Taylored Expressions.


First up is this set of tags! You know I love creating tags for the holidays and I just loved putting this set together using the new Boughs & Berries Background stamp, The new Inside Bracket Stacklets dies, the new Mini Strips - Holiday stamp set and a few previously released products: the Mini Strips die, Little Bits - Fox dies, and Little Bits - Snowflake Confetti die.


I stamped the Boughs & Berries Background with Toffee ink onto Toffee cardstock for a pretty tone on tone look and then cut them out with the Inside Bracket Stacklets dies to create the tag bases. I put together the fox by creating my own papers with liquid watercolor painted onto watercolor cardstock and then die cutting. The eyes and nose of the fox are colored with a Copic marker (I didn't get that crazy with watercoloring!) I added the fox to the tag base and then added the glittered snowflakes and sentiments from the Mini Strips - Holiday stamp set that are die cut with the coordinating Mini Strips die.

I'll be on the hunt for some natural themed wrapping paper to pair with these tags - I can't wait to attach them to gifts!



This card is created with the new Border Builders - Evergreens dies. I die cut the trees with watercolor cardstock and then painted the trees with liquid watercolor. I added more watercolor cardstock behind the trees that I painted for the sky. The whole scene is framed with some Toffee cardstock that I die cut with one of the new Inside Bracket Stacklets dies.


I added lots of sparkle with glitter added to the trees and snowbanks as well as on the little snowflakes that I scattered across the scene. The sentiment is stamped with Oreo ink and is from the new The Very Best Gift stamp set (you will see more about that set tomorrow!)
