TE Sneak Peeks: Gross, You Have to Live with a Boy Now!


Hello! It's Day 1 of Sneak Peeks from Taylored Expressions! All of the new products will be available on Thursday,  March 3rd at 7AM PST!

For my first card today, I used the hilarious new set Mr. & Mrs. Grumplings! These sentiments are sure to bring smiles to the new bride and groom's faces:) I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I cut them out with the coordinating Mr. & Mrs. Grumplings Dies and popped them up with foam tape over a panel cut with a Stitched Square Stacklet. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the panel. 


The dp I used is Prima Madeline and the layout is MOJO435





For my next card I used the beautiful new Best Wishes Script Die. You can use this sentiment die for so many occasions! I cut my sentiment out of Earl Grey cs and layered over some My Mind's Eye Fiddlesticks dp. I cut the scallop borders using the Stitched Scallop Edger Die and added the sweet flowers using the Mini Bloomers Dies. I also used some Silver Metallic Twine to line either side of the sentiment.

Taylored Expressions Emboss Resist-Better Feel Better


Hello! The Baker's Dozen is playing around with the Emboss Resist Technique this month:) For my card today, I used the TE Graphic Greetings Get Well stamp. I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark onto some watercolor paper and heat embossed with Zing! White Embossing Powder. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to "paint" over the paper once embossed.

I cut the sentiment out with a Stitched Rectangle Stacklet and then layered over some Fancy Pants Burlap and Bouquets dp. I added the flowers that I cut out of the same dp using the TE Bloomers 1 Dies. Very simple!


We hope you're inspired to give this technique a try! Have fun playing, and have a wonderful Wednesday:)

For my final project this release, I used the super adorable set-Wishes on a Wire St. Paddy's Day! I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle Stacklets Die and used a larger Stitched Rectangle Stacklets to cut the Doodlebug Pot O' Gold dp. I added a Sugar Cube border using the Stitched Scallop Edger Die and the pot of gold was cut using Little Bits Rainbow's End Dies along with some Oreo and Lemon Meringue CS.

Taylored Expressions February Sneak Peeks: Simply Stamped Tulips and Butterfly Swirls Embossing Folder!


Hello! It's Day 3 of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions and all of the new products will be available tomorrow at 7 AM PST!!!

For my first peek today, I used the gorgeous new set-Simply Stamped Tulips. I used a light pink, coral, and tangerine ink to stamp my tulips, and kiwi and olive ink to stamp the stems. I cut them out with the coordinating Simply Stamped Tulips Dies.


The bg is very simple. I used some Simple Stories I Am dp and cut out the frame using a Pockets and Pages Stitched Essential Die. It is the same layout I used for my card yesterday:) I stamped one of the images from the set directly onto the dp and added a ribbon border. I then popped my image up with foam tape. Very simple but so pretty!


For my next card, I used an adorable new stamp set called Bunny Tails & Happy Trails. I chose this adorable bear image from the set, stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I cut it out with the coordinating Bunny Tails & Happy Trails Die and popped it up with foam tape over a circle cut with a Stitched Circle Stacklet and embossed with the new Butterfly Swirls Embossing Folder.


This embossing folder is so pretty and I also used it on the Lollipop cs layer. I added a banner cut with a Stitched Banner Stacklets Die and the dp I used is Doodlebug Pot O' Gold. Finally, I added the border using the Stitched Scallop Edger once again, and stamped a partial sentiment directly onto the dp. The inside contains another sentiment from the set:
