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 stamps from the Share the Light set....the curly ornament strings were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto the new TE Salt Water Taffy cardstock and then the cute Little Bits - Ornaments dies were used to cut the ornaments out of papers from the Gingerbread Lane 6x6 paper pack. The same papers were used for the background  and.... 

the sentiment from the same set, Gingerbread Lane Sequins, and a little sewing finish it off.  

My second card features several new Taylored Expressions products....the sentiment is from the Sing of the Seasons set. It was stamped with Memento Lady Bug ink and Copics were used to color the holly. The Label Stacklets 9 dies were used to create the frame and the background paper and the frame were embossed with the Sheet Music Embossing Folder.

The bow is from the Sack It - Turkey die set which will be sneak peeked's a super cute set, btw.....the Little bits - Holly dies were used to create the *boughs of holly* to finish it off.
