The weather outside is frightful, and the AC is so delightful. Since there’s no place to go, let creativity flow, let it flow, let if flow. Welcome to Christmas in July with the adorable and exclusive Candy Cane Lane Kit from Taylored Expresssions!
I loved creating with this kit. The candy canes are the PERFECT size, and the stripes stencil makes it easy to add stripes and to line up the dies for perfect cuts. So fun!
Here, the candy canes take center stage. I could be making candy canes for days as the stencil is slightly oversized from the candy cane die. This makes it so easy to line the die up and cut with perfect alignment. I love how the entire candy cane is colored with no white edges around the color.
I’ve paired the candy canes with a sweet holly backdrop in Mint Julep and Pink Champagne colors on a Petite Scallop Rectangle layer and added circle window. I added a few splatters of snow with Sugar Cube pigment ink spritz of glimmer using the TE Shimmer Liquid Watercolor.
For my 2nd card, I arranged the candy canes in a heart pattern on the holly backdrop and accented with the Sweet Stripes Cutting Plate. I chose a more traditional Cherry Pop red and Granny Smith green for this card, and I love the bright vibes but I’ll be using the Sweet Stripes cutting plate again and again with a variety of colors.
My candy canes and sentiment are embossed with the new Peppermint Red Embossing Powder. The bright, vibrant red of this embossing powder is gorgeous, and it’s got some scented flecks in it that smell so good when heated up. You’ll be loving the smell and craving cocoa while you craft.
Also speaking of peppermint, don’t miss the adorable peppermint embellishments. They are perfect for a shaker card or accents. So sweet, but not edible – for decoration only. 🙂
Catch a quick peek of the glitter envelopes included in this month’s kit. The glitter is smooth to the touch on these, and I consider them a treat. So shiny and gorgeous. The perfect wrapping for a special card.
Do you see my Christmas tags coming together? I’ll try to finish those up and share soon! Love how easy it is to create with another Taylored Expressions Kit. This versatile collection of goodies is available while supplies last. So do not delay if you want to get started on your holiday crafting!
