Today we are featuring a TON of new gorgeous stamps!! I’m so excited to be back AND that Taylor asked me to help out with the full release again this month. WOOHOO!!! So what are we featuring today well, we have Woodland Winter, Banner Holiday, Moka Betty, Moka Hope, and Snow A la Carte. For my two projects today I am using Woodland Winder (SO CUTE) and Snow A la Carte (ADORABLE!!).

My first card uses Woodland Winter designed by Doug Applegate, is a full sized set that includes 21 stamps and comes on a 5.75″ x 8.5″ full color sturdy storage panel. All Taylored Expressions stamps are made of deeply etched red rubber and are pre-trimmed and mounted on EZ Mount cling foam. This set has a matching Christmas tree die set that is FANTASTIC that I’ll be using on another card later in the previews!

To create my card I stamped out all the little critters using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and masking them with post-it notes so I could layer them together. I colored the little critters with Copics and then die cut them using a Spellbinders Label 2 die. I sponged inside the die and then traced around the die on green paper from one of the Project Pantry kits Taylor is offering this month. I hand cut the green paper as I used the biggest die in the set. I mounted all of that on MME 12 Days of Christmas designer paper that was also part of the Project Pantry kit. To finish it off I added a bit of ribbon from the Project Pantry kit, added a sentiment that I cut using Spellbinders Labels 10,used the Tiny Toppers dies to create a little bit of holly in the corner of the sentiment and glittered things up with a bit of Star Dust Stickles. The doodling was added with a Sharpie pen.

My second card uses the brand new Snow A La Carte stamps. This is another addition to the Word A la Carte stamp designed by Nancy McKinney. Isn’t it so cute?!? I just LOVE this stamp!!

To create this card I stamped out the image in Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copics to match Echo Park’s Dots and Stripes Candy Shoppe and Metropolitan. To dress it up I added Stardust Stickles to the Snowman and the “s” of the word snow and added a border to the Spellbinders Label 10 die using a black pen. The scalloped borders are cut using a Medium Scalloped Border Die. I added a bit of white ribbon and some red rhinestones and I was done. 🙂

Taylor is also featuring another very special stamp set today, Moka Hope.

We’re excited to get involved in the fight against breast cancer by donating a portion of the proceeds from each of the Moka Hope stamp sets sold during our October Release to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Isn’t she sweet? And of course, the color of her ribbon can be customized for any number of causes. She’ll be available for purchase beginning Thursday, October 6th at 8am PST at the TE Store. Before the big release, we also have a selection of pink products available for 20% off! Perhaps some of these could help you with the cards you’ll be creating for the cancer center?
