TAYLORED EXPRESSIONS OCTOBER SNEAK PEEKS: WE GIVE THANKS & COLOR BLOCK CUTTING PLATE

Hey there, that was an awesome first day of peeks!  I can't wait to see what the Baker's Dozen has up their sleeves for today!  Don't forget, everything you've seen over the last couple of days will be available in the Taylored Expressions store, starting tomorrow, at 7am PST.  I just love fall...the colors are amazing and I never get tired of the crispness in the air as the leaves change colors before they tumble to the ground!


This gorgeous cornucopia, from We Give Thanks, was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto white card stock, colored with Copic markers then cut using the out-of-the-box technique.  Check out that little acorn die cut...love it!  It was cut with Falling for You and was a lot of fun to color!  A stylus/soft mat was used to shape it before it was popped up on foam.  Truly the perfect embellishment, along with the burlap banner, for this fall beauty!

JUST US GIRLS ~ #208 Inspiration Picture
HECK OF A CHALLENGE ~ Autumn Colours

This next card uses the adorable Christmas Doodles stamp set.  There are tons of super cute images with this set!  The best part...they color up fast!  That's definitely a plus when designing your Christmas cards!  The images were stamped with Tuxedo Black onto while card stock then colored with Copic markers.  It doesn't get any easier than this!



Do you like the layout?  It was easy with the help of Taylor's new Color Block Cutting Plate!  Seriously, there are so many possibilities with this cutting plate!  You can use the frame like I did...or use the frame and mat the images or you could just use the rectangles and scallops on their own.  Love this idea!

Wow, Tam your cornucopia card is stunning especially as your colouring is so wonderful. I'm so pleased you kept the card so understated so that we can really appreciate the harvest stamp. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
