Hi friends. Taylored Expressions' new "On Dasher, On Dancer" Santa die is perfect for holiday card making. He can be flying over a neighborhood, dashing through the snow, soaring through a beautiful night sky or hovering on a tag!
Check out these samples. All the patterend paper is also from Taylored expressions new Gingerbread Lane 6" x 6" paper pad which has 12 delightful and colorful holiday patterns.
TE also has new embossing folders for the holidays: Snowfall and Music. So many wonderful products to use in your holiday card making. Stop in and see them soon!
Many of you know I love to make backgrounds with inks and jumbo daubers. For this background I used the new round Ink Blending Tool and Distress Inks Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves and Salty Ocean. These inks blend beautifully and react to water. For the night stars I mixed a little Ranger's Pearl Perfect Pearls in a little water using a watercolor brush then applied it by tapping the brush over the background. Then I repeated this technique with just water for a little different look.

How fun is this card? Santa is soaring over the neighborhood. The sky was created using TE's Cloud Border, Memento London Fog ink and a jumbo dauber. The moon was sponged with a little Memento Tangelo ink to add depth and dimensio. And the new TE Little Bits Christmas Trees are perfectly sized for this cute little scene.
More Christmas cards are coming -- you can see them in person at The Stamp Act. Stop in soon.
