TE Sneak Peeks: Santa Auditions and Crafty Points Giveaway!

Hello! It's Day 1 of Sneak Peeks from Taylored Expressions, and this month is all about Holiday crafting! The new products will be available on Thursday, October 6th at 7AM PST!

For my first card today, I used the adorable new stamp set Santa's Helpers. One of the sentiments in the set is "Santa Auditions", so I decided to create a little stage for these cuties using the Center Stage Cutting Plate Dies along with some dp from the Playful Patterns-Holiday 6x6 Paper Pack. The floor of the stage was created using some Toffee cs and the fab new Woodgrain Background Stamp

I stamped my Santa hopefuls using Oreo Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I then cut them out with the coordinating Santa's Helpers Dies and popped them up with foam tape over my scene. The white bg was embossed with the new Plaid Embossing Folder and the sentiment was cut out with a Stitched Banner Stacklets Die. Here's a close up:

So cute! 

For my next card I used another adorable set that was previously released called Deck the Halls along with the new coordinating Deck the Halls Dies!


I stamped my images with Oreo Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I cut them out with the new dies and popped them up over oval panels cut with the new Stitched Oval Stacklets Dies. I embossed the Toffee oval with the new Twinkling Holiday Embossing Folder and added some ribbon and sequins from the new Snow Flurries Sequins. The sentiment was cut out with a Stitched Banner Stacklets Die once again and the dp is more Playful Patterns-Holiday.

While both cards are darling, I think the Deck the Halls card is my favorite. I just love the idea of the little critters trying to decorate a tree! 😀 Can't you just imagine their frustration over the lights being tangled! LOL! Thanks for sharing both cards!
