Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks: Party Pals and Wishes on a Wire-Birthday!

10:00 AM 3 Comments

Hello! This is a special month at Taylored Expressions because we are celebrating TE's 7th Birthday!!!  We have several birthday themed products being released this week, as well as some other fabulous new products. All of the new items will be available on Thursday, September 3rd at 7AM PST!

For my first card today, I used an adorable and fun new set called Party Pals with Coordinating Dies! I used all 3 images in this set, stamped them with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored with Copics and cut them out with the included dies. I popped them up with foam tape over a panel cut with a Label Stacklets 1 Die and embossed with the Lots of Dots Embossing Folder. The dp is a really fun new paper pack called Hello Happiness and I added the sentiment with the new Happy Birthday Banner Dies. Finally, I added some fun Hello Happiness Sequins, and some stitching and it was complete! This set would make anyone smile!

For my next card I used the adorable new stamp Wishes on a Wire-Birthday! I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black, and colored with Copics. I used more Hello Happiness dp and added the cute banner to the top of the image using the new Skinny Mini Party Border Dies. The fishtail was cut with a Banner Stacklets 1 Die.

Taylored Expressions Die Focus: Spooky Trees Accessories!

3:56 PM 0 Comments

Hello! I have a fun little Halloween tag to share with you today using the fun Spooky Trees Accessories Dies from Taylored Expressions:)

I started by cutting out my tag using the Build a Tag 5 Dies. I cut the base out twice, once with Oreo cs and once with Build a Scene Halloween dp. Next I cut out the sky layer using another one of the Build a Tag 5 Dies and some more Build a Scene Halloween dp. I added the wolf cut out of Toffee cs using the Spooky Trees Accessories Dies and sponged around it with tea dye distress ink. I then used a circle dye to cut out the moon and added the bats from Spooky Trees Accessories to complete my scene! Super quick and easy, and I love how it came out! These would be super easy to mass produce!

Thanks for stopping by today:) I've been busy working on projects for Taylored Expressions Release Week next week! You are going to LOVE what we have in store:) Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Taylored Expressions August Pinterest Inspiration-Home is Where the Haunt Is

8:00 AM 0 Comments

Hello! I wanted to share a card I made using some fabulous inspiration from the Taylored Expressions Pinterest Boards! I used Taylor's amazing Frightful Night Card for my inspiration today. I just love her sponged (or maybe airbrushed) sky!

I decided to use this awesome die called 13 Dead End Drive as the focal point of my card. Love this die! It creates an instant scene! I layered it over a sky sponged with purple ink using the Cloud Border Die as my template. I added the fence using the Spooky Fence Border Die and some gray grass using the Wispy Grass Border Die

The bats are from the Spooky Trees Accessories Dies and the pumpkin is from the Gothic Window Accessories Dies. The sentiment is from the A Spooky View stamp set.

Make sure you check out the TE Pinterest Boards for more amazing inspiration! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday:)
