Your Next Stamp Fun Friday!


Hello!  Well it's the last Friday in May which means there's not much time left to play with this month's sketch and/or inspiration picture!  

I used the inspiration picture this week to make a fun little pillow box using the brand new Gift Card Pillow Box Die Set! This set comes with 10 Dies which is so fabulous! I used the oval frame today and stamped a sentiment from the new Smiley Happy Critter Crew Four stamp set. I also used some flower dies from the YNS Whatnot Die Set Groovy 70's and added some Sparkly Black Gumdrops for the centers.

Check out the Your Next Stamp Challenge Blog to see more Fun Friday projects from the DT to and to read how you can play along for your chance to win a $20 YNS Gift Certificate!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous Friday:)

Taylored Expressions Die Focus: Build A Treat Borders!


Hello!  I wanted to share a fun little birthday card I made using the Taylored Expressions set Big Bold Birthday along with this adorable Build a Treat Border Die! This card came together so quickly. I simply stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the 'Day' with Copics. I cut it out with an oval nestability and added some sponging.  I cut out the darling cupcakes using the Build A Treat Border Die and added a banner at the top using a TE Banner Stacklets 1 Die. A little stitching and it was complete! The dp is Carta Bella Summer Lovin'.  

Next week is new release week at Taylored Expressions and we will be starting with peeks on Monday!  You are going to LOVE all the new summer products:)  Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy your Thursday!
