Taylored Expressions Die Focus: Keeping Tabs

10:28 AM 3 Comments

Hello!  I wanted to share a Valentine I made using some fabulous Taylored Expressions products!  These adorable piggies are from the TE set Love Makes the World Go Round.  I stamped them with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics.  The card base was cut with the Tag Pocket Die

I used one of the Pockets and Pages 3x4 Essentials Dies to cut my insert. I stamped the sentiment from Love Makes the World Go Round and the heart from In My Heart on the insert and added the tab to pull it out using the Keeping Tabs Die. The dp and ribbon are from the January Key Ingredients Kit.

So much fun!  I can't wait to make more of these:)  Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific Tuesday!

Your Next Stamp Fun Friday!

12:00 AM 2 Comments

Hello!  It's Fun Friday on the Your Next Stamp Challenge Blog so make sure you head on over there and check out the fabulous DT projects this week:)  

Today I used the inspiration picture to create a Valentine treat holder and tag:

I stamped the monkey and heart images from the YNS Set Jungle Critter Crew, cut them out, and popped them up on a tag that I cut with the Treat Bag Tag Die Set.  I added the sentiment and then tied my tag onto a treat box that I cut with the Kup Holder Die.

Now I just gotta go find some treats to fill it up!  That's it for me.  I am working all weekend at a big gymnastics meet down at Disney World of Sports.  My daughter's gym hosts this meet every year and it is HUGE!!!  I'm looking forward to helping out:)  Have a wonderful weekend!

Taylored Expressions January Stamp of the Month

11:40 AM 2 Comments

Hello and happy Saturday!  I wanted to share another card I made with the TE January Stamp of the Month-Kiss Me and the coordinating dies called Love M'stache!

For this card, I decided to make a tag using the TE Tag Stacklets 2 Dies.  I cut the arrow and circular element from Love M'stache and added a stamped heart from Kiss Me in the center.  The "Love" sentiment is also from Kiss Me. I stamped the xoxo sentiment from the set on the background and used some My Mind's Eye Cupid's Arrow dp.  Sweet and simple!

That's it for me today.  I'm off to get a long overdue haircut-yippee!  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful long weekend!

Hello!  It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions which means that all of the stamps and dies you've seen over the past few days are available NOW!

I have a couple more projects to share with you today.  First up is a very simple set of Valentine cards that I made using the new 3x4 Pocket-Part of My Heart Die.  I also used the "Valentine" from the Pockets and Pages February Script.  Here's a closer view of one of the cards:

Next up is a card I made using the new Square Block Cutting Plate!  I just love that you can achieve so many different looks with this die!  I used some My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Heirloom dp to back my frame and added heart elements and frames that are included with the Square Block Cutting Plate
Finally, I stamped a sentiment from Big Bold Valentine in the corner.  I just love how it came out!
