Hello! It's Day 3 of Sneak Peeks from Taylored Expressions and all of the new products will be available on Thursday, March 9th at 7AM PDT!
Today is my favorite day because we are introducing a couple of really cool die concepts! The first is the new Matchbox Dies! I made a cute little card and gift box set using the Matchbox Dies and the new Matchy Matchy Stamp Set:
I started by stamping the images I wanted to use from Matchy Matchy with Oreo Ink and coloring them with Copic Markers. I cut them out with the Matchy Matchy Dies. I made the background of my card using the Up, Up, & Away Cutting Plate. I cut a piece of Peapod cs and then a piece of Oreo cs to use for the balloon strings. The balloons were cut out of a variety of TE designer paper.
I put my matchbox together by cutting a piece of Cookie Monster cs with the Matchbox Dies and embossing the part that wraps around with the Confetti Embossing Folder. I made the frame using the included Matchbox Dies along with some Sugar Cube and Peapod cs and popped my cake image up with foam tape. I added a couple of chocolates to the inside for a fun little birthday treat:)
The next die set is the fabulous new Home Sweet Home Die Set and the coordinating Home Sweet Home Accessories Die Set! I started by cutting the base of my house out of Buttercream Frosting cs and embossing with the Brick Embossing Folder. I then used the Clarity Stencil Brushes to brush Pumpkin, Mulled Wine, and Toffee Ink over the bricks. I cut the roof out of Oreo cs and embossed with the Herringbone Embossing Folder. The door was cut out of Mulled Wine cs and the windows out of Sugar Cube cs.
The Home Sweet Home Accessories Dies were used to cut the planters, flowers, bushes, curtains, shutters, and the scalloped part of the roof. So cute and I can't wait to make this again with totally different colors and textures:)
I put my bag of chocolates inside-such a fun way to present a treat!
