Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peek Day 2

Hello!  Welcome to day two of sneak peeks for the Taylored Expressions October release! 

Today, I am peeking The Cool Crowd (by Emily Burger for Embracing Grace line.) This set is choc full of adorable snowmen and fun coordinating sentiments, including the little snowman poop poem (that I just HAD to use!)

First, I created a simple card---turning one of the snowmen in the set into a little snow globe.  To create the globe, I just cut out a circle of Kraft cardstock and then perched it on a piece of felt that I cut with one of the new Label Stacklet I dies. (I just cut the label in half to create the look of the bottom of the globe!):

I colored the stamped image with Prismacolor pencils and then added the white around the edges of the snow globe and the edge of the card using a white pencil.  He is such a happy little guy and I love that sweet little bird keeping him company.

Next, I just could not resist using the snowman poop poem in the set.  The poem reads:
"You've been naughty, so here's the scoop... All You get is snowman poop!"  So funny--I cannot wait to stick these in my kids' stockings this year:) 
I stamped the sentiment on vellum and then wrapped it around the base of the tube.  I used the new Make a Snowflake die to cut a felt snowflake to finish off the top of the tube.

Here are the new dies that I used on my projects today:

The TE baker's dozen team will be providing inspiration through Friday.  If you missed yesterday's sneak peeks, I encourage you to go take a peek at the blog hop...the projects are wonderful!  All of the new products will be available for purchase on Thursday, October 4th at 8 a.m. PST.  You'll find it all in the Fresh out of the Oven Department at the Taylored Expressions Store.
