Taylored Expressions October Release: Seasonal Trees with Evergreen and Ice Border

Hello everyone!! 
Well, it's finally's Release Day at Taylored Expressions!!!! All the new stamps, dies, papers, and sequins are available for purchase in the New Section of the Taylored Expressions Store...WOOT!!! 

I just love these awesome tree dies....the Seasonal Trees die is smaller than a cutting plate which leaves room at the bottom for a sentiment. The Evergreen dies can be arranged along the side or they can be used on the Seasonal Trees die...they are so versital and look fabulous, too!!! 

For my first card, the Seasonal Trees die was used on the Sugar Cube cardstock and the background Cookie Monster cardstock was embossed with the new TE Snowfall Embossing Folder. The Evergreen die was used on three different colors of green cardstock to add a little dimension and the sentiment is from the new TE Ready, Set, Snow stamp set. 

My second card features the new adorable Little Bits - Mittens dies and the new Ice Border. The mittens paper and the same background paper are from the new Gingerbread Lane 6x6 paper pack and a piece of Baker's Twine was used to hold the mittens together. 

The Ice Border was cut out of Sugar Cube cardstock and matted with a dark gray cardstock and the sentiment is from the new TE Little Bits of Christmas stamp set. Sewing and the Gingerbread Lane Sequins finish it off.
