Taylored Expressions January Sneak Peeks: Forest Friends and Let's Talk Edger 2

Hello everyone..... I hope you had a wonderful holiday season full of fun, food, and family!!!! Can you believe it's 2016.... I just got used to saying  and writing 2015!!! The best thing to happen so far this year is starting today....welcome to day one of the Taylored Expressions January Sneak Peeks!!!! It's favorite release of the year!!!! We have thirteen new Petite Stamp and Die Combos, three new embossing folders, and 7 new dies ...the release is Thursday, January 7th, at 7:00 AM PST so sit back, get a cuppa something, and enjoy the peeks!!!! 

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 Forest Friends Stamp & Die Combo...the images were all watercolored with Zig watercolor pens and popped up with foam dots. 

The previously released Birch Tree Border die was used to cut out the Toffee and Sugar Cube cardstock diecuts. The Sugar Cube diecut was adhered to the back of the Toffee diecut a little off center to add a white shadow. The stars were cut with the Starry Night Cutting Plate, the grass was cut out of Sweet Basil cardstock with the previously released Grass Border,  and the sentiment from the Forest Friends set was stamped on the previously released Label Stacklets 7 diecut. 

My second card features the Let's Talk Edger was cut out of Sugar Cube cardstock and adhered to the Salt Water Taffy *sky*. The trees were all cut with the previously released Build a Scene - Trees dies and the *grass* was cut out of TE 6x6 Paper Pack - Build A Scene paper with the previously released Build a Scene-Rolling Hills dies.  

The cute little fox images from the Forest Friends Stamp & Die Combo were both watercolored with Zig watercolor pens, cutout with the coordinating die and popped up with foam dots. The hearts were cut with the previously released Little Bits - Love Confetti heart die and the frame was cut with the largest frame die from the Frame in Frame Cutting Plate set. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and the twine is the finishing touch.
