taylored expressions - october sneak peeks day 3

*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 3 of sneak peeks for the October release at Taylored Expressions! Today we are sharing seem new products themed towards the reason for the Christmas season. I created a card and set of tags to share with you today.

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


This first card is created with the new The Very Best Gift stamp set and coordinating die. It features a gift image and coordinating sentiment that you can add to a manger piece. I did a rustic color palette with Toffee cardstock (surprise!), stamping the gift on Honey cardstock and using Chocolate Truffle ink for the sentiments and manger. 


The background behind the focal piece is stenciled with the new Modern Holly Layering Stencil set. I did the leaves in Avocado and Olive and added the berries with Sugar Cube ink. I really love the look of this stencil design and it is so easy to line up and layer the elements.

I used the Inside Bracket Stacklets dies for the bases of this set of tags that feature the A Savior is Born and Follow the Star die collections.

The border designs are die cut from some watercolor cardstock that I painted with a gold watercolor. There's a really pretty shimmer and shine in person that is hard to capture in a photo!


I used the new Simple Strips - Christmas stamp and coordinating Simple Strips die to add the sentiments to the tags. I stamped them with Sugar Cube ink onto Honey cardstock.

My tag pile for Christmas gift wrapping is growing!
