Happy Thursday and Happy Release Day!  The Christmas Release is always my favorite TE release of the year and there is soooo much to love all available today at Taylored Expressions!  I’m happy to get to play along with design team today and have 2 super simple cards to share.


First up features the new stamp set Shiny & Bright along with coordinating dies.  It just doesn’t get simpler than this.

Ornaments were stamped with SU inks (Gumball Green and Real Red) and die cut.  Then I covered them with Versamark and heat embossed with clear powder.  They were popped up on foam tape.  The little garland they are hanging from is a stamp image from the new set Share the Light.  I just sparkled it up with some rhinestones.  The paper is from the new TE Gingerbread Lane 6×6 Paper Pack.

Recipe for Simple Ornaments –

Stamps: Share the Light, Shiny and Bright
Paper: TE Gingerbread Lane
Other – Shiny & Bright Dies, Kaisercraft rhinestones, corner chomper

This card was so quick and simple that I wanted to make another with the same layout, only vertical.  This time I chose an image from Deck the Halls.  I’ve always had a soft spot for penguins!

Once again I used the the Gingerbread Lane 6×6 Paper Pack and the string of lights is from Share the Light.  I added some glossy accents to the bulbs after I colored them with Copics.  I seriously adore this paper collection – such fun bright colors and Taylor made sure the patterns mix and match so perfectly!

Recipe for Shine Bright –

Stamps: Deck the Halls. Share the Light

Paper: TE Gingerbread Lane, plus black cardstock

Other: Spellbinder circle dies, copics, Doodlebug Sprinkles, Glossy Accents, corner chomper


There are so many awesome new  stamps and dies, not to mention this yummy new paper!  I wish I had more time to play.  I hope you are able to treat yourself to something special from TE today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
