Welcome back for Day 2 of sneak peeks at Taylored Expressions!  Today I have two more projects to share with you!  All of the products we've been sharing with by available for purchase Thursday, September 1st at 7am Pacific!!  My first card features the NEW Thanks Cutting Plate.  I also used some foliage from the NEW Fall Florals set.

The patterned papers are from the NEW Playful Patterns - Harvest 6x6 Paper Pack.  I used the Thanks Cutting Plate to die cut the green patterned paper and then used a strip of Toffee cardstock to just die cut the "thanks" portion of the cutting plate and adhere it over the patterned paper die cut.  I stamped and die cut the flowers and leaf using the NEW Fall Florals set along with the Fall Florals Die Set.  The finishing touch was the Harvest Matched Sequins.

SUPPLIES USED:






My second project today features the NEW Birch Tree Background Stamp.  I started by stamping the Birch Tree Background in Chocolate Truffle ink onto Toffee cardstock.  Next, I put together the little wagon using the NEW On the Road - Wagon as well as the Little Bits - Fall Harvest die sets.

I put together the little scene, adding some grass with the Grass Border Die.  The card was finished with the Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate, some Playful Patterns - Harvest 6x6 Paper and the Stitched Banner Stacklets for the sentiment.

SUPPLIES USED:







Taylored Expressions is celebrating its 8th birthday with some fun party favors! These include everything from the exclusive WISH BIG Stamp & Die Combo set to patterned paper packs, ink, and more! Visit the TE Blog for all the special offers and for your chance to win a fun prize!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you'll stop back again tomorrow for more sneak peeks!!


    

Is It Hot in Here?



Hi there!  Welcome to September sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions!  This marks TE's 8th Birthday, so it's a big party!!!  I have two projects to share with you today.  The first features the NEW Bright Birthday!  It is a wonderful sentiment set with perfect birthday sentiments for all ages!

I used a few other new sets on this card as well.  The candles are from the NEW Make a Wish Stamp & Die Combo and the background banners are from the NEW Party Streamers set.  Don't these sets all together make for a fun birthday card?!!  I LOVE how you can stamp and die cut multiple candles and flames to customize your card.  The streamers make a very festive background as well.  To finish the card, I used some Rainbow Brights Sequins.

SUPPLIES USED:






The second project I have to share today features the NEW Happy Birthday Cutting Plate.  This is a fun cutting plate that makes creating a birthday card simple.  You don't have to cut apart and piece as I did with this card.  I used papers from the Hello Happiness 6x6 Paper Pack for the background as well as the "birthday" part of the sentiment.  For the "happy" and "birthday", I just cut strips of paper wide enough to cover those words instead of cutting an entire piece with the cutting plate.

All of the little "bits" sprinkled around the card were created using the NEW Little Bits - Birthday Confetti and the Little Bits - Sequins Confetti.  They add some fun and "party" to any card!!   I think it would even be fun to put a bunch of them inside the card so that when the recipient opens the card, they are sprinkled with confetti!!  :)

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Potter's Clay stamp set and coordinating, Pottery Die Set.  If you've come from visiting Betty, you're in the right place!!  I chose to do a little rock 'n roll stamping with these vases.  So I inked them up in red first, then rolled the edge in a brown.  It gives them nice shading and dimension. I watercolored a bit to ground the vases on the card.  Thanks for stopping by today!  Next on today's hop is Laurie!!

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Kindness Matters stamp set and coordinating, Great Kindness Die Set.  If you've come from visiting Betty, you're in the right place!!  For my card, I decided to use some watercoloring again.  This time, I used some heat embossing with the watercoloring.  I stamped the flowers and heat embossed them in white, then watercolored.  I die cut the flowers and then arranged them on the card.  I added the leaves and some Shine Bright Sequins for some sparkle, then finally the die cut sentiment.  Thanks for stopping by!  Next on today's hop is Laurie!!
