Hello everyone and welcome to day 1 of the Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks!!! This is such a fabulous many awesome stamp sets and dies...a new Matched kit with new card stock colors and 3 new embossing folders...Whoohoo!!!! 

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. 

My first card features the adorable little reindeer from the new Deck the Halls stamp was colored with Copics and a corner rounder punch was used on the upper right corner. 

Papers from the Gingerbread Lane 6x6 paper pack were used in the background and the previously released TE Medium Scalloped Border die was used to cutout the Granny Smith scalloped border. The Gingerbread Lane Sequins, twine, and the sentiment from the same set finish it off. 

My second card features the sweet and oh sooo cute You've Got Mail - Christmas stamp. It was colored with Copics and a little glitter was added to the snow on the mail box. The new TE Winter Flurry Embossing Folder was used on the Cherry Pop card stock banner and then a white craft ink pad was run over the snowflakes so they would pop. The sentiment is from the new TE Campy Christmas set and....

the button, twine, and Gingerbread Lane Sequins finish it off.
