Taylored Expressions October Release Day: O Christmas Tree and Color Block Cutting Plate

Hello Everyone and Welcome to the Taylored Expressions Release Day....Whoohoo!!! This is the day we all have been waiting for!! All the new October release goodies are available now in the New Products Section of the Taylored Expressions Store!!! They are just waiting for you to take them home!!!!! 

First I want to show you the Christmas card I made with the fabulous Color Block Cutting Plate....I looove this die!!!! It not only cuts the block sections but it also cuts two block section cool is that!!!!! 

I cut two of green and one red...then I mixed and matched the different colors to create a little depth and interest. Doodlebug's Home for the Holiday's 6x6 paper pad was used to line two of the sections. The three sentiments are from the Big Bold Christmas set and they were stamped with green and red ink.  The Santa and group of presents  are from the Christmas Doodles set...they were both colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up with foam tape. Glitter was added to the Santa for a little pizzazz!! The ribbon and Doodlebug Sprinkles finish it off. 

My second project features the beautiful O Christmas Tree Die and the Snowflake Cutting Plate!!

The background was embossed with the Snowflake Cutting Plate...instead of using the C plate on my Cuttlebug, I used the B plate with an embossing mat...I absolutely looove products that one can use in several different ways!!! 

The top O Christmas Tree die was cut out of aqua card stock and the bottom part was cut from Simple Stories December Documented 6x6 paper pad. The tree stand was cut from brown card stock and pearls were added for a little glam. The seam binding finishes it off. 

Are you ready for some awesome inspiration from the TE Baker's Dozen DT...check it out!!!

Thanks for sure to stop by the Taylored Expressions Store and check out all the new products!!! Tomorrow is Spotlight Day and we will have more inspiration with the October Release stamps and dies!!!
