Hangin' Out at the North Pole-Day 1 Sneaks at Taylored Expressions

I’m excited to be part of today’s sneak peeks of Hangin’ Out—At the North Pole, one of my newest Whimsical Wishes sets being released on Thursday at Taylored Expressions. Taylor’s got a sleigh load of sets and goodies for you this month. I’ve used 10 of over 20 images in this set on the cards I have to show you today. Hmmm...which one to start with? Well, OMGolly! Here’s a snowman I hope you’ll love. I certainly do, especially teamed up with the Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather 6x6 paper.

I tried to break free from my typical square cards with this next one. I think Santa’s a little exposed! I drew the borders around the three images, and coloured them with copics/prismacolor pencils with gamsol. The border is created with the Scalloped Eyelet Border Die, a Taylored Expressions exclusive. The plaid paper is from the Basic Grey Jovial 6x6 Paper Pad.

Finally, I always think of Karen and Jami whenever Taylor asks me to add a bird to a set. I perched this sweet thing on one of the stockings. Back to square, I kept this card simple with no sewing or embossing. I’ve used the Scalloped Eyelet Border Die again and Take Note Die 3.

Enjoy the sneaks Taylor and these talented Baker’s Dozen gals have for you today:
