TE October Sneak Peeks: Sleighs and Poinsettias

Sleigh Bouquet by Jen Shults

Hi everyone! It’s day two of Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks and today I have some fun new products to share and LOTS of coloring. All of the products that we are sharing today will be available Thursday 10/5 at 7 am PST.

My first card today features a new addition to the bouquet stamp line – the Sleigh Bouquet. This stamp is just gorgeous and makes for a nice elegant card. I started by stamping the bouquet on Sugar Cube with Oreo Ink. I colored the image with Copic Markers and die cut the image with the coordinating Sleigh Bouquet die.

After die cutting the sleigh I added a bit of sparkle to the sleigh rails with a Stardust Jelly Roll pen. To create the background I cut a 3 7/8″x5 1/8″ piece of Sugar Cube cardstock and sponged the left side lightly with Salt Water Taffy Ink using a Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool. I tied a bit of burlap twine around the blended area of the card and added a few clear Tiny Twinkles around the top and bottom. The sentiment is stamped on TE Vellum with Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder. I attached the sleigh to the background with foam tape as well as the background to the cardbase.

My second card features a new addition to the Big Blooms stamp line – Big Blooms Poinsettia. I have so much love for this stamp. I love coloring flowers and this one just gets me. And as you can see I got a little carried away with the coloring, lol.

My card started with an A2 sized piece of Sugar Cube cardstock that I stamped with the Big Blooms – Poinsettia stamp set, using copy paper and my MISTI to mask and arrange the stamped images. After getting everything all stamped I set out to color the image with Copics. I won’t lie this took a couple hours but it was well worth it!

When I finished coloring I trimmed the image down just a bit to 4″x5.25″ and matted it with Oreo cardstock. I didn’t want to cover much of the image so I opted for a simple sentiment and chose Noel Script die cut from Silver Cardstock and a tiny strip of vellum behind it. I added a few Snow Flurries Sequins and mounted it to a Sugar Cube cardbase with foam tape.
