Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks Day 2 - Merry & Bright

Hi and thanks for stopping by for Day 2 of Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks.  Today I two more Christmas cards to share. All the new products will be available at the TE web store at 7:00 am PST.

My first card features the new Sitting Pretty - Holiday Accessories Dies, which coordinates with the previously released Sitting Pretty Dies. The trees, Santa, sleigh, deer, snow, and stockings are all die cut with the Sitting Pretty - Holiday Accessories Dies. The shelf is included in the Sitting Pretty Dies. I added a little glitter to the snow and Cherry Pop Enamel Shapes to the hang the stockings. 

The sentiment is from the new Simply Stamped - Christmas Tree Stamp Set and framed with the smallest die in the Frame in Frame Cutting Plate. The card front is framed with the largest die in the Stitched Framed Stacklets 1 and the background is embossed with the Bead Board Embossing Folder. 

The centerpiece of my next card is the new Nativity Cutting Plate. So pretty! I die cut the cutting plate twice, once from Toffee Cardstock and once from the new TE Gold Foil. I adhered the two layers together, leaving a slight shadow with the gold foil. I added Peeled Paint Oxide Ink to the palm trees. The star is cut with the Little Bits - North Star. The sentiment is from the Holiday Florals Stamp Set. 

To create the background I stamped the Twinkle Twinkle Background on watercolor paper with Versamark Ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. Then I used a blending tool and distress inks to add the night sky.
