Hanukkah Release from Taylored Expressions!

Taylored Expressions has a New Release today !!  It has a handful of goodies to celebrate Hanukkah! What a wonderful release to add to your collection to celebrate Hanukkah.

Today, I used the new Get the Word Out- Happy and Get the Word Out – Happy Shadow along with a few previously released products. Funny enough, even though this is a Hanukkah release, as discussed above, I ended up making more of a Holiday Season card.

To create the background I used one of my SUPER faves, the Modern Holly Layering Stencils with greens and Guava. I then die cut the Diagonal Stitched Rectangle Stacklets with that. To finish it off, I die cut the ombre Happy along with the On the Repeat-Holiday and popped those in the Frame in Frame 2 die.

I just love the way the greens come out on this stencil and I just have so much fun layering these stencils. I finished this with some stitching and some Clear Drip Drops… which reminds me that I need to purchase some more of those, since I am running low! ahhhh!

Also, one more thing while I have you–there is a NEW gift with purchase over at TE this October month–it is called Winter Village and it is a good one! I haven’t seen a free gift that I haven’t like yet! Anyway, I wanted to share a few cards I had made with it here:

I thought this one worked wonderfully to just sent a Season’s Greetings type card. The new Arch Stacklets frame a scene perfectly!

This next card is sort of any time kind of card–Welcome to the Neighborhood! I kept this one pretty simple too. (This sentiment is from the OH MY WORD – HELLO set.

The tag is from the Pierced Tag Stacklets–a long time FAVE! 🙂

Lastly, more of a Christmas card, if you will, but using alternate color scheme that I think I would normally reach for with Christmas cards?

Oh how I loved how soft and sweet this one turned out!

Taylored Expressions Release Week! Day 1

Hey hey! It’s time to start sneaking for Taylored Expressions new October Release?!  And it’s all about Holidays!

This first card features the new Jolly Holly Background, Pine Clippings, and Handlettered Holiday 2 Sentiments & Dies. Goodness–How fun is this background?! And the best part: Lightening fast! Don’t get me wrong, I can spend a couple hours on a card, but when you get super fun results fast, it’s just magic!

I added a few layers of ink here to get a sort of resist effect. I stamped it with both Sea Salt and Sugar Cube and then added the greens and reds on top with the little stamps that come along with the background to fill it in! So fun to do!

Next up, I was able to use this awesome new stencil called Modern Holly Layering Stencil. This stencil is magical to use–I just love the effect! 

There are three layers to this stencil and you can super easily line them up with the guides on the side, producing sweet results very easily! I would also recommend Pixie Spray if you haven’t used it. It is a light tack that holds the stencil down, just enough to keep it in place while you blend, but not enough to leave a residue on your project. It cleans off your stencil easily or you can leave it on like I do for the next project. It is amazing stuff!

Think of all the color combos you could layer up with this!? I just loved this one so, so I went with the traditional sort of colors.

I thought it would be cool to have a teacher holiday card–I never have time or the energy to getting those made on time! 🙂 I’m looking forward to giving this one to my son’s teacher at Christmas!

Of course, I used the Petite Scalloped dies for both of these too!I Pretty much always use those, don’t I? Ha! ❤ them! 🙂
