Christmas Release from Taylored Expressions!

Taylored Expressions has their big Christmas Release today !!  It’s a big one filled with all things Christmas, Winter, Holidays and Festive fun! 🙂

I can’t wait to use all the things to craft my little holiday heart out. But for now, let’s get to what I have made so far, yes?

First up today, I have the new Little Critters Christmas + coordinating dies. I also used the previously released Circle and Square Window Frames.

The background is created with the Backstory Christmas Background embossed in white on Sugar Cube. It’s not very apparent in these photos (because white on white), but in person, it gives it that little extra something.

Everyone is colored with Copic Markers and the panel is cut out with the Petite Scallop Rectangle Stacklets. Gah these little guys are TOO cute!!! And the best part is they can be used all winter long! Or heck, even in the summer with their friends, Little Critters! 😊

Next up, we have the super fun Trendy Tree Farm. I was pretty darn excited to get this layering stencil set. I love the modern feel of this fun set and anything with layering stencils you know is just going to fun and easy to create with! I paired this with the new Merry & Bright sentiment set + dies.

I used the following inks on the stencils: Guava, Cupcake, Peaches n Cream, Pineapple, Lemon, Mint Julep, and Blueberry.

The background is created with the previously release Twinkle Twinkle Background embossed on white using Mint Julep cardstock. I die cut the panel out with the Frame in Frame 2 die. I thought it would be fun to stamp the trees and sentiment in Blueberry to mix things up a bit. OH and also, I die cut all the Trendy Trees out with the Trendy Tree Farm Cutting Plate–boom! All at once! SCORE!

Lastly, I used the new Beautiful Baubles dies. These dies coordinate with the previously released Beautiful Baubles Layering Stencils. So now you can die cut these out and use them individually. I did just that here, creating a little bundle of ornaments.

To create this frame, I die cut Pineapple cardstock with the Mini Slim Thin Frame Cutting Plate. I used the Beautiful Baubles Add Ons for the sentiment and the little ornament topper.

In my continued effort to mix up my color pallets, I used Sweet Basil, Lollipop and Pineapple for this card. I thought it turned out fun with a little different twist! 🙂

Christmas Cards! Always a fun time of the year! 🙂
