Taylored Expressions Day 2 Sneak Peeks: Little Bits of Christmas and Sparkle and Cheer

Hi Everyone

Welcome to Day 2 of sneak peeks from the October Release from Taylored Expressions! Everything sneak peeked will be released on Thursday at 7am PST!

Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE Blog each Sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win. 
For my first card today, I used the previously released stamp set called Sparkle and Cheer with the dies that coordinate with them that will be released on Thursday! I LOVE the ability to cut out all the intricate shapes in this stamp set - so much easier than handcutting (which I love!). For my card today I picked the beautiful dove with the snowflake on its belly and stamped and cut it out with the Sparkle and Cheer dies and then popped her ontop of the embossed sheet music from the Sheet Music Embossing Folder that will be released on Thursday.

Here is a closer peek at the card - I shaded the bird a little bit with copics and then added some stickles and then added some liquid pearls to the edges of the scallops and the circle:

If you are looking to mass produce a card for the holidays - I think this stamp set is perfect - along with the coordinating dies really makes it simple to cut and assemble cards for the holidays! For my second card, I created little fun bit of red and green using the new Gingerbread Lane paper collection from TE with the soon to be released stamp set called Little Bits of Christmas and the Little Bits Christmas Tree die :

The background of the card was created using the Sweater Weather Cutting Plate - which makes it not only simple - but so much fun to create a festive background for the cards!! I love that the stamp set has a banner image for the word "Merry" that you can mix and match with other sentiments in the stamp set. Here is closer look at the sentiment :

It was so much fun to create these cards - and get the wheels going to get started on holiday card making!!
