Taylored Expressions - Jingle All the Way - Pinterest Inspiration :-)

Hi all! And a Very Happy Friday to you! Hope you all have a Super weekend! 8-) Well, today I'm back with a quick post, to share my latest Taylored Expressions creation inspired by TE's Awesome Jingle All the Way Dies  & TE's Sheet Music Embossing Folder and some Awesome Pinterest Inspiration as well, from this Pin HERE of a Super Sweet Christmas Card that I just LOVE, created by my Sweet Teamie Stephanie Kraft!!...;-)

Here's Stephanie's Awesome make..
And here's my inspired take... ;-)
I actually made up a few of these Fun Holiday makes as I am still in the processes of re-building my severely depleted Christmas card supply, lol and am still finding myself in need of LOTS more Christmas cards for this years mailing list YIKES!! lol ;-) And I completely LOVE that these will be easily mailed with no extra bulk & still have lost of Texture and a touch of fun Sparkle too! 8-)  Thanks for the inspiration Stephanie!! ;-)
Believe it or not, these Fun Festive cards came together really quickly with the help of Jingle All the Way Dies, TE's Sheet Music Embossing Folder, TE's Sugar Cube Premium CS, a bit of foam tape along with Some Gold Sparkly CS from my stash as well..8-) 
My Mats and BG layers were created with TE's Sugar Cube Premium CS, Cherry Cobbler CS, and Simple Stories Darling Cozy Christmas 6x6 collection too. 
And to finish them all up I just added my Gold Sparkly Jingle All the Way bells and a bit of gold sparkly ribbon from my stash... 8-)

Let It Snow - Tailored Expressions Colored Dry Embossing! 8-)

Hi all! And a Very Happy Tuesday to you! 8-) Well, today I'm back with a quick post, to share my latest Taylored Expressions creation inspired by TE's Awesome Snowfall Embossing Folder, TE's Baby It's Cold Outside stamp set, along with TE's Make a Snowflake Dies as well, to create these Festive Snowy Christmas cards to try my hand at the 'Coloring Dry Embossing' Technique... ;-)
I started off by embossing TE's Toffee Premium CS with TE's Snowfall EF and then colored all the dry embossed snow with my White Sharpie Marker.  Now, I must admit, I chose a pretty easy peasy Embossing Folder to color the embossed bits for the technique, lol but you still get the gist of it, lol... ;-) Plus I had this idea floating around my head for a while now, and knew TE's Snowfall EF would be just the Perfect addition!! 8-)
For my Mats & BG's I chose Simple Stories Cozy Christmas 6x6 collectionSimple Stories DIY Christmas 6x6 collection, Cherry Cobbler CS, TE's Toffee & Sugar Cube Premium CS's as well. To finish them all up, I stamped and embossed my Baby It's Cold Outside sentiments directly onto my BG's & added TE's Make a Snowflake Die cuts blinged up with a touch of Icicle Stickles & topped off with a couple of matching sequins from my stash. Pretty easy peasy, huh?...8-)

Here are the items I used for my project today...

Hope you all have a Super day & Thanks so much for dropping by! 8-)

Taylored Expressions November Release Day - Tag-Along Autumn! 8-)

Hi All! And a Very Happy Thursday to you! 8-) Haven't you just Loved ALL the AWESOME Sneak Peeks the last few days!! I know I sure have!! Talk about LOTS of Amazing New Goodies!! Whoo Hoo! ;-) Well I've got some Really Great News!... All of the new Taylored Expressions products are now available in the New Department. Yay!! Time to do some Shopping! Whoo Hoo! ;-) 

And today I am Super Thrilled to share One last November New Release project featuring TE's Brand New Tag-Along Autumn stamp set, TE's Brand New Coordinating Tag - Along Autumn Dies and TE's Brand New Scattered Leaves Embossing Folder as well to create a few quick CAS type Thanksgiving Cards...8-)

I started off by stamping my Sweet Tag-Along Autumn Pumpkins with Memento Tuxedo Black, & colored them up with my trusty Copics. I cut them out with the help of TE's Brand New Tag-Along Autumn Dies & popped them up with a bit of foam tape... 8-)
My Mats and BG layers were created with the help of TE's Instant Photo Frame Die cuts that I trimmed down a little to make them more square, along with TE's Sugar Cube & Brand New Sweet Basil Premium CS's, TE's Brand New Scattered Leaves EF, patterned paper from Simple Stories Sweater Weather collection. To finish them all up, I stamped my Tag-Aong Autumn sentiment directly onto my focal panels with Memento Tuxedo Black and added some touches of distressing with Antique Linen & Vintage Photo Distress inks... Which I am wondering now, if I over did a bit, lol.. I Was going for Super CAS with a  touch of Rustic thrown in... lol  So I'm still not sure if I like how they turned out or not, lol... CAS is still a challenge for me, so they seem like they still need a little something, lol but my Sweet Hubby says he Likes them, lol... Hmm.. he may just be humoring me, lol... 8-)

***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.

Well, today I am Super Thrilled to share a couple more Fun Sneak Peek projects and the first one features TE's Brand New Take Your Place Dies & Napkin Ring Dies too, but in a bit of a Christmasy Fun & unusual way... ;-) 
Seeeee....? Lol 8-)  Can you tell I had some fun with these Cutie Patootie Reindeer Noses treats?... lol  I really Love how these turned out too!! ;-) 
Well when I first saw TE's Brand New Take Your Place Dies, I knew they'd make Perfect Place setting tags, but My Sweet Hubby always ends up working for Thanksgiving and Christmas so I thought I'd try my hand at thinking a bit outside the box and use them for treat bag toppers but make them extra Fun and Festive with the help of TE's previously released Sack It Reindeer Dies...;-) 
To create my Sweet Reineer treat bag toppers I started off by cutting out my Take Your Place Die cuts & Sack It Reindeer Ears from TE's Toffee Premium CS and inked my edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink. My Sack It Reindeer's eyes were cut out from TE's Oreo Premium CS , their noses were cut out from TE's Cherry Pop Premium CS and blinged up with a  bit of Stardust Stickles & for their Antlers I chose some patterned paper from Simple Stories Sweater Weather collection. I added highlights to their eyes with a White Sharpie & for their rosy cheeks and pink ears I added a touch of Victorian Velvet Distress ink too... 8-)
On the Back I added the Little 'Reindeer Noses' tags with the help of TE's Brand New Napkin Ring Dies, TE's Chocolate Truffle Premium CS & TE's Reindeer Food Stamp set as well.  I added the 'Noses' by hand with a White Sharpie Marker. Next I filled my Clear treat bags with Chocolate covered Almonds and One Red Peanut M&M and stapled them into my treat bag toppers.  I used some  ribbon from my stash to cover the staples, but took the pic before I covered the backs so you could see where I put the staples...;-)

Next up I am featuring TE's Brand New In Other Words - Tea Stamp set. To create a Sweet Cheery Birthday Card for a Dear Friend of mine! I sure hope she likes it! ... 8-)
I started off by I stamping my Sweet In Other Words - Tea Image with Memento Tuxedo Black & colored it up with my trusty Copics. I cut it out with the help of my Classic Circles Nesties sets & popped it up with a bit of foam tape... 8-)
My Mats and BG were created with TE's Strawberry Milkshake & Toffee Premium CS's  and Authenique's Flourish 6x6 collection.  To finish it all up I stamped my In Other Words  - Tea  sentiment directly onto my Focal panel and added some Pretty gingham ribbon from my stash. Oh, and the Awesome sketch is DS175..8-)
