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:
