Taylored Expressions October Release

 It's release day at Taylored Expressions!!  All the new October products are now available at the TE web store NOW!

Today I have a couple of cards showcasing the new Perfect Picture - Vertical Die. There are two different size dies in this set. My first card uses the larger die.

The larger die in the Perfect Picture - Vertical Die Set is perfect for creating a scene. I use the Build a Scene - Rolling Hills die to cut the snowy hill from white glittered card stock The church is cut with the new Little Bits - Church Die and the trees with the new Build a Scene – Winter Trees Dies.

I used white ink to dust the trees with snow. The background paper is from the new Build a Scene - Christmas 6x6 paper pack. 

On my second card I created a shaker with the smaller die in the Perfect Picture - Vertical Die Set. I stamped a sentiment from the new In & Out Christmas Stamp Set in Gold Delicata Golden Glitz Ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. The In & Out Christmas Stamp Set is one the best holiday sentiment set I have ever owned! The Build a Scene - Christmas Sequins are also new this month.

I added two borders of snowy hills with the Build a Scene - Rolling Hills die and the trees with the new Build a Scene – Winter Trees Dies. The background paper is also from the Build a Scene - Christmas 6x6 paper pack. 

 On my last card I used the Perfect Picture - Vertical Die to create a photo Christmas card, simple to put together and easy to mail.
