Taylored Expressions August Release Day: I Miss Your Face!

10:00 AM 1 Comments

Hello! It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions, which means that all of the new products are now available in the TE Store!

I have a couple more projects to share with you today, and the first uses the super fun new Build an Emoji Die Set and the coordinating You Make Me Smile Stamp Set

I put my Emoji together using some Lemon Meringue, Strawberry Milkshake, and Oreo cs and cut out the "hello" using the Hello Script Die. I layered those over a Sugar Cube panel and stamped the sentiment directly using Cherry Pop Ink and the Mini Misti Tool to align. I framed the panel using a frame cut with a Stitched Frame Stacklets 1 Die out of Cookie Monster cs.

For the background I used the new Happy Flower Background Stamp and colored some of the images using Copic Markers. Such a happy card!

For my next card I used one of the new Skinny Mini Halloween Border Dies along with the Ghost Town Border Die.

I cut my ghost town out of Earl Grey cs and filled the windows with Lemon Meringue and Oreo cs. The background was sponged using templates cut with the Build a Scene Rolling Clouds Dies, some Jelly Donut Ink, and a Clarity Stencil Brush.

I layered the Ghost Town Border over it as well as the bird border cut out of Oreo cs using a Skinny Mini Halloween Border Die. The sentiment is from the Peek-a-Boo Halloween Stamp Set and I stamped it with Oreo Ink using the Mini Misti Stamping Tool. Finally, I added the bats cut with the Gothic Window Accessories Dies. Love this spooky scene!

Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks: Open if You Dare

10:00 AM 2 Comments

Hello! It's Day 3 of Sneak Peeks from Taylored Expressions and all of the new products will be available tomorrow, August 3rd, at 7 AM PDT!

For my first peek today, I made a set of super fun Halloween tags using the new Mum's the Word Stamp & Die Combo along with the new Label Stacklets 11 Dies. I started by stamping my images with Oreo Ink and coloring them with Copic Markers. I cut them out with the included dies.

I used the Label Stacklets 11 Dies to cut pieces of Sugar Cube cs as well as Jelly Donut, Oreo, and Peapod cs. I stamped a sentiment from the set using Oreo Ink and then embossed the white panels using the Weathered Embossing Folder and sponged around the edges using Earl Grey Ink.

I added some Baker's Twine to the top and they were complete!

For my next project, I made a fun treat container using the Coffin Treat Boxes that TE carries, along with a new die that fits perfectly on top of these treat boxes called From the Crypt-Haunted-so cool!

I used From the Crypt-Haunted to cut a piece of Jelly Donut cs. I then used some Lemon Meringue cs to layer behind the windows, and cut the moon out of Sugar Cube cs using a Stitched Circle Stacklets Die. I sponged around the edges using Jelly Donut, and stamped a sentiment from the Mum's the Word S&DC once again. To finish it off, I added some bats from the Gothic Window Accessories Die Set.

For the inside, I used a Label Stacklets 11 Die to cut a piece of Sugar Cube cs and stamped a sentiment from the new Simply Said-Halloween Stamp Set using Jelly Donut Ink. I can't wait to make more of these!!!
