Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks: Watercolor Panels, Baby, It's Cold Outside and Peek-a-Boo Squares

Hello everyone and welcome to day three of the Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks!!! Do you have your wish list made out?? Do you have a favorite so far?? It's a good thing that I don't have to pick a favorite because I love everything in this release!!! Remember, the release is tomorrow, Thursday, October 1 at 7:00 AM (PST)! You will find all the new products in the *New* section of the Taylored Expressions store!!! Also, remember....

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. 

Taylor has introduced an awesome new product for this release... 3x4 Watercolor Panels-Christmas!! The packet includes 12 individual black and white Christmas and Holiday illustrations printed on heavyweight watercolor cool is that!!! 

I used the Have a Holly Jolly Christmas was watercolored with Ranger Distress inks and matted on Oreo cardstock. The Pink Champagne cardstock panel was embossed with the Holly Embossing Folder and the scallop was cut with the previously released Medium Scallop Border. The previously released Little Bits-Holly die was used for the diecut holly and 

the background paper is from the Doodlebug's Sugarplums 6x6 paper pad....the Baker's Twine finishes it off. 

My next card is a fun shaker card that I created with the Stitched Circle Stacklets dies....a circle was cut out of Poppy Seed cardstock with two Stitched Circle Stacklets dies  to create the frame and the base was created by cutting a piece of the round leftover cardstock from the frame.  The super sweet little snowman from the previously released Baby It's Cold Outside stamp set was colored with Copics and cutout with the new Baby It's cold Outside dies. The trees were cut with the Build a Scene-Winter Trees and the *snow* was cut with the previously released Build a Scene-Rolling hills dies. A piece of acetate was cut with the Stitched Circle Stacklet and adhered to the frame.

The Build a Scene-Sequins were added to the inside and the sentiment is from the Baby It's Cold Outside stamp set. Sewing was done around the edges of the background paper...the paper is from the new Build a Scene-Christmas 6x6 paper pack.  The Baker's Twine was wrapped around the *globe* and the bow was tied at the top. 

My last card features the Peek-a-Boo Squares and the darling Little Bits-Penguins dies. A little winter scene was created behind the squares using the previously released Build a Scene-Rolling Hills die for the snow and the Little Bits-Christmas Confetti dies were used for the little trees and the Santa hats. 

The snowflake paper from the Build a Scene-Christmas 6x6 paper pack was used for the sky and the sentiment was created with the Very Merry Stamp with Companion die set. The baker's twine and the exclamation mark created with the tree trunk die from the Build a Scene-Winter Trees set and an enamel dot finish it off.
