TE Happy 9th Birthday Tag!


Hello! I have a fun little birthday tag to share with you today using one of the super adorable images from the Balloon Buddies Stamp Set along with the fab Circle Numbers Dies. I also used the Build a Tag 1 Dies to create my tag.

To start, I stamped the darling monkey using Oreo Ink onto some Sugar Cube cs and colored with Copics. I cut it out with the coordinating Balloon Buddies Die. I then used the #9 Circle Number Die to cut a piece of Cookie Monster and Candy Corn cs, then replaced the balloon in the image with the circle number. Since the rest of the image has a white outline from being cut with the coordinating die, I free cut a white circle outline to place behind the balloon.


I used some Simple Stories So Rad dp to create my tag base and some Chocolate Truffle cs to cut out the frame. I popped my image up with foam tape over the frame and then stamped a sentiment from the Let's Talk Sentiments Stamp Set onto the included banner die. Finally, I added some navy ribbon to the top and it was complete! So cute!


Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful Wednesday!

TE Release Day: Give Thanks


Hello! It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions and all of the new products are now available! I have one more project to share with you today using the awesome new Fall Florals Stamp Set

I decided to make some fun place cards for my Thanksgiving table using the Take Your Place Die. I cut the base out of Toffee cs and added some Playful Patterns Harvest dp to the bottom. I stamped a sentiment from the Fall Florals set with Chocolate Truffle Ink and cut it out with a Label Stacklets 9 Die. I then stamped the sunflower image from the set over the sentiment using Dijon Ink. The leaves were stamped with Pumpkin Ink and the berry twigs with Mulled Wine Ink. I cut them out with the coordinating Fall Florals Dies. Here's a close up:

TE Sneak Peeks: Thankful For You!


Hello! It's Day 3 of Sneak Peeks from Taylored Expressions! All of the new products will be available tomorrow, September 1st at 7AM PST!

For my first peek today, I used the GORGEOUS new stamp set-Pumpkin Bouquet! I stamped the image with Oreo Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I cut it out with the coordinating Pumpkin Bouquet Die and popped it up with foam tape over a circle cut with a Stitched Circle Stacklet. The background Toffee panel was embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and the dp is from the Playful Patterns-Harvest 6x6 Paper Pack. I stamped the sentiment using Sugar Cube Ink. Here's a close up:






For my next card I used the new Bitty Banners Dies!


These banners come with 4 different shapes. I chose to stick with the fishtail banner die from the set and added the "HAPPY" using the Mini Caps Alpha Dies and some Sprinkles cs. I then added the "birthday" from the If Balloons Could Talk Stamp Set and cut the cake and streamers using the Little Bits Cake and Stand Dies. The dp is from the Hello Happiness 6x6 Paper Pack and the base of the card is Pink Champagne cs.
