Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peek: A Winter View and Color Block Cutting Plate


Hello!  Are you ready for day 2 of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions?  All of the new products will be available tomorrow~yay!

I have a couple more projects to share today.  The first one uses one of the images from the new set A Winter View:


I decided to make a tag using the TE Tag Stacklets 1 Dies, and I used the Gothic Window Die to frame the image.  I added some colored dp to make it look like stained glass.  The image from A Winter View was stamped with VersaMark onto some Kraft cs and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I sponged the tag with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink and added a pretty border using the Lace Chain Border Die.  The dp I used is Basic Grey 25th and Pine.


Such a sweet image and I just love the sentiment!  Here are the supplies I used for my gift tag:


For my next project I two fabulous new dies~the Color Block Cutting Plate and the Oh Christmas Tree Dies!


There are sooooo many things you can do with the Color Block Cutting Plate!  It comes with several layering dies and I can't wait to play with it some more!  Today I decided to create little frames so this fun dp from the 'Tis the Season Project Pantry Kit could show through.  I then added this amazing tree using the Oh Christmas Tree Dies~love it!!!  To finish it off, I added a little tag that I cut with the Designer Mini Tags and stamped a sentiment from A Winter View.




Here are my supplies for this card:

I love so many things about that tag - the stained glass look, the white embossed on kraft...so pretty! And now I'm thinking of so many window tag possibilities! Your color block card is adorable - so clever the way you used the dies to create the little scallop windows - something I hadn't thought of!
