Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks: You've Got Mail Christmas & Ready, Set, Snow!

Hello! Welcome to the first day of Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks! The Baker's Dozen is kicking off 4 days of projects (3 days of peeks and release day). We are releasing 26 new dies, 13 stamp sets, 3 embossing folders, 1 cutting plate, a new 6x6 paper pack and 2 new cardstock colors! All products will be released on Thursday, October 2, @ 7 AM PST.

I have several cards to show you today! The first one features You've Got Mail - Christmas, a new A La Carte stamp illustrated by Danielle Lounds. 

I stamped the image onto Toffee cardstock, colored with Copic markers and die cut with Label Stacklets 5. The Sugar Cube background is embossed with the new Winter Flurry Embossing Folder. The sentiment is from Shiny & Bright. Here's a detail shot:

Next, I'm featuring a new stamp set called Ready, Set, Snow!, a medium sized stamp set also illustrated by Danielle. It contains 4 super cute images and 4 matching sentiments. I couldn't decide which one to use, so I made 4 cards and used them all! The images and sentiments can be used on their own or with the new Snow Globe ALC stamp and/or Snow Globe die!

The sweet fox in front of the trees was cut, colored and fussy cut. I then popped the image up inside the Snow Globe (die cut out of Cherry Pop). I used both the Winter Flurry Embossing Folder (white strip) and Snowfall Embossing Folder (within snow globe). Here's a detail shot:

My next card features the sweet snowman image. He was stamped and colored, then I used the Snow Globe die to cut him out. I used both dies included with the Snow Globe die and stitched around the circle.

Here's a detail shot:

My next cards uses the sweet bunnies! I stamped, colored and die cut them with the Snow Globe die, then I popped them up in the Snow Globe (stamp + die).

Another detail shot:

My final card uses the penguin image without any of the new Snow Globe products. I stamped and colored him, then I used the new Label Stacklets 9.
