The Cool Crowd...Taylored Expressions Spotlight Day!


This week has been so much fun with the new release from Taylored Expressions! Today is Spotlight Day and I was lucky enough to get to play with the new set, The Cool Crowd, which features a happy bunch of adorable snow people! 


I thought I would create a set of coordinating thank you cards -- after all, I always need a bunch on hand for all the wonderful gifts that our family receives during the holidays. I made them using the new Merry & Bright Project Pantry and I just love the bright, fun colors!


I used these picture perfect Make a Snowflake Dies. So sweet!





I paper-pieced just certain parts of the snow people, which made these quick and easy. I also accented each card with some liquid dimensionals -- Bean Tip: if you use varying pressure, you can get a pretty pattern, as I did here.


BEAN NOTES
Stamps: The Cool Crowd (Illustrated by Emily Burger for Taylored Expressions); Accents: White Liquid Pearls (Ranger), buttons (generic); Dies: Make a Snowflake Dies (Taylored Expressions); all patterned paper, card stock, and ribbon from Merry & Bright Project Pantry Kit

And the spotlight fun continues with more projects from the Baker's Dozen!
