Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks: Calendar Critters and Critter Correspondence Notecards

Hello everyone and welcome to day three of the Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks!!  Have you picked a favorite from the sneaks?? I just love all the kitchen stamps and dies because I love to cook and so do my friends and family!! I also love the sweet little Calendar Critters I will show you today...sooo cute!!! Remember...the release is tomorrow, Thursday, November 5 at 7:00 AM PST (9:00 CST).



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!! 


The notecards were created with the Calendar Critters stamp set, Calendar Critters Dies, and  the Critter Corresponcence stamp set...the images are sooo cute and fun to color and the sentiments fit the images perfectly!! The Stitched Square Stacklets, Stitched Banner Stacklets, and the Braided and On the Spot Embossing Folders were also used on all four cards. 


The little fox image from the Calendar Critters set was colored with Copics, cut out with the Calendar Critters die, and popped up on a layer of leaves cut with the previously released Little Bits-Leaves dies. The fence, sun, and clouds were cut with dies from the Build a Scene-Calendar dies and they were adhered to the watercolored background. The watercolor, Toffee and Granny Smith backgrounds were cut with the Stitched Square Stacklets and the On the Spot Embossing Folder was used on the Granny Smith layer. The sentiment from the Critter Correspondence set was stamped on the Stitched Banner Stacklets diecut and the glitter, button and twine finish it off. 


The sweet little moose was colored with Copics, cutout with the Calendar Critter dies and popped into a winter wonderland created with snow from the Build a Scene-Calendar die set, snowflakes that were cut with the previously released Little Bits -Snowflake Confetti, and the tree embossed with the Braided Embossing Folder was cut with one of the previously released Build a Scene-Central Park dies. The background Cherry Pop layer was also embossed with the Braided Embossing Folder and glitter was added to the tree and the snow. 


The little penguin was also colored with Copics and popped up on the Watercolored background. The moon and star diecuts were cut with the Build a Scene-Calendar dies and the *ice* was cut with one of the previously released  Build a Scene-Central Pard dies. The Salt Water Taffy layer was embossed with the Braided EF. Glitter was added to the moon, star, penguin, and the ice. 


The turkey was colored with Copics, cut out with the Calendar Critter die and popped up in a fall scene with grass from the Build a Scene-Calendar set, leaves cut with the previously released Little Bits-Leaves dies, and the tree from the previously released Build a Scene-Central Park die set. The Candy Corn square layer was embossed with the On the Spot Embossing Folder and glitter was added to the leaves.
