Taylored Expressions December Key Ingredients

It is the 15th of the month and the December Taylored Expression Key Ingredients Kit is now available!! I am very excited about this month's kit!! I just love the color combo and the pretty wintery papers. You can find all the information about the Key Ingredient Kit Subscription right HERE!

December Key Ingredients Challenge: This month Taylor is challenging us to create a set of post-holiday thank you cards! It's always good to work ahead and this challenge should give you a great head start in designing something special to say thank you for the thoughtful gifts you receive this holiday season. Stop by the TE Key Ingredients Blog for all the details.

I made a set of four thank you cards with the materials from the kit and a combination of TE stamps.

My first card uses stamps from From the Heart. I used the frame, cut a circle for the middle and added the heart that I covered with Crystal Effect. I used the Medium Scallop Border Die for the bottom border. The sentiment is from CreativiTEA.

Next I stamped the tree in Holiday Wonder and colored them with Copics. I added the rhinestones in the kit and then colored them with a red Copic marker. I cut out a small hill for under my trees. I used the Medium Scallop Border Die on all my cards. The sentiment is from Branching Out.

Here I used the snowman and snowflakes stamps from Holiday Wonder and added the kit rhinestones to the centers of my snowflake. The sentiment is from Branching out. The twine is from my own stash.

For my last card I used one of the frames from Take Note and the Take Note Die 1 for my center image. The flower is from Friendship Blooms and cut out with a Friendship Blooms Die.
