TE October Sneak Peeks Day 1: Bobble Heads and Watercolor Panels

Hi everyone! Welcome to Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks! We are all about everything Christmas this month! I know I need all the time I can get to complete Christmas cards each year! We will be sharing sneak peeks Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week with release day on Thursday 10/4 at 7 am PST.

My first project today features a new adorable stamps set of bobble head Christmas characters called Santa & Friends. These adorable little guys are so fun to color up and come with their heads and bodies separate so you can add tiny wobble springs behind the head for a wobble effect!

The next project I have to share with you features a new set of Holiday Watercolor Panels that are great for creating quick and simple cards.

There are four designs in this 3×4″ Watercolor Panel set that are perfect for batch making Christmas cards. I’ve used two of the designs above with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. To create the background die cut the Quartrefoil Cutting Plate from a lighter color of cardstock and cut a background piece to fit behind it with a darker color of cardstock to create a two tone look. I added a twine bow and Little Bits embellishments to the corner. I separated my layers with foam tape for extra height.

I used TE’s new Silver Foil Cardstock for the Little Bits Jingle Bells for a bit of extra sparkle and shine. On each of the watercolor panels I added just a touch of sparkle with a Sakura Stardust Jelly Roll Pen.
