TAYLORED EXPRESSIONS OCTOBER SNEAK PEEKS: SACK IT SNOWMAN WITH SACK IT TO YOU & BIG BOLD CHRISTMAS

Hey there, woohoo...it's time for Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks and OMGosh, wait until you see this release...it's CRAZY amazing!  Everything you see over the next couple of days will be available for purchase, at the TE store, starting at 7am PST on Thursday, October 3.  Okey-dokey then, I have two projects to share with you today.  I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to see this first die!  It's called Sack It To You and it's a little treat bag that can be customized...the best part...it comes with a BONUS Santa suit.  Woot!  Also available (each sold separately)...a super cute reindeer, a sweet little penguin...and this adorable snowman that I'm showing today.  I can't wait to make the rest of them!



Everything was die cut from white card stock then colored with Copic markers.  I didn't want the Copic coloring to show through on the back of the hat, so a second hat was cut then adhered to it before being attached to the bag.  The Poinsettia was shaped with a stylus/soft mat to give it dimension, and foam squares were placed between the layers for separation.  Clear micro beads were glued to the center before it was adhered to the flower. 

This project fits the following challenges:  Totally Gorjuss, Traditional Christmas Colors; Drunken Stampers, Die Cuts and Whoopsidaisy Challenge, Anything But a Card.

EYES, MOUTH:  C6, C4, C2, C0  NOSE:  YR18, YR15, YR00  CHEEKS:  R30, R00, R0000, 0  SNOWMAN:  BV20, BG70  HAT:  C6, C4, C2, C0  HATBAND:  G46, G43, G40  POINSETTIA:  R59, R56, R46, R43  LEAF:  G46, G43, G40

TECHNIQUE(S):  3D
SIZE OF FINISHED PROJECT:  3 1/4" wide x 5" high x 2" deep



This next card uses the new Snowflake Cutting Plate.  Talk about a quick and easy background for holiday cards!  The sentiment panel was created with the Chalkboard Technique.  I found a new ink to use with this technique, and it worked amazingly!  The sentiment and swirl from Chalkboard Elements was stamped with Memento VersaMagic Cloud White then set it aside to dry.  While it dried, I broke out my new Bow-it-All and made that awesome bow!  By the time the bow was finished, the sentiment was dry, so I inked up my finger and rubbed the edges of the die cut.  A trio of red rhinestones complete the card.

Your coloring on that snowman bag makes me want to weep, it's so beautiful! What does it feel like to be so crazy talented? Do you make something, then crack your knuckles, put your hands behind your head, lean back in your chair and think, "DAMN, I'm awesome!!!" I would if I were you, Tam!
