Taylored Expressions September Release Day: P is for Party!

10:00 AM 0 Comments

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

I have a couple more cards to share with you today using the new products, and the first uses the new B is for Birthday Stamp Set along with the Free Fall Background Stamp and the new Number Balloons Dies and Balloon Strings Dies!

I started by stamping my P is for Party sentiment onto Sugar Cube cs using Oreo Ink. I colored the image with Copic Markers, then stamped it again onto another piece of paper and cut it out to use as a mask. After masking my image, I used the Free Fall Background Stamp and some Sprinkles Ink to stamp the bg.

I framed the image with a frame cut out of Lollipop cs using a Stitched Frame Stacklets 1 Die and cut the banner using the Party Banner Border Die and some dp from the 6x6 Rainbow Brights  Paper Pack. I added the balloons using the new Number Balloons Dies and some Cookie Monster cs. The strings were cut out of Poppy Seed cs using the new Balloons Strings Dies. Finally, I added some Sequins and the Sprinkles cs card base and it was complete!





For my next project, I used the fab new Curly Q Cutting Plate-LOVE!!! as well as the Iconic Wishes-Birthday Stamp & Die Combo which is a FREE gift with $50 purchase!


I started by stamping the top of my cupcake with Pink Champagne Ink and the bottom with Mint Julep Ink. I cut them out with the included dies. I then stamped the cherry portion of the cupcake with Oreo Ink, colored it with a Copic Marker, and cut it out so I could add my cherry to the top.

For the background I used some dp from the Hello Happiness 6x6 Paper Pack. I then cut the streamers using the Curly Q Cutting Plate and some Cookie Monster cs. I popped my cupcake up with Foam Tape over the streamers and then framed the image with a frame cut out of Salt Water Taffy cs using a Stitched Frame Stacklets 1 Die once again:) I added the Sequins to finish it off.



Don't forget about the party favor! For a limited time, when you spend $50 or more at the TE Web Store, you’ll earn this super sweet Iconic Wishes - Birthday Stamp & Die combo FREE!

Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks: Big Thanks!

10:00 AM 10 Comments

Hello again! It's Day 3 of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions, and we are rounding out our 9th birthday celebration by having a little fun with a scavenger hunt!

For my first peek today, I used the GORGEOUS new Big Blooms-Daisy Stamp Set! I am LOVING the new large floral images! I stamped the daisy and leaves with Oreo Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I hand cut the images out. For the base I simply used some Sugar Cube cs and some Toffee cs embossed with the Burlap Embossing Folder. I sponged around the embossed panel with Toffee Ink and then popped my flower up with Foam Tape over it.

I added the sentiment cut with the new Thanks Script Die out of Mocha cs. To finish it off I added some Lemon Meringue Enamel Shapes. So beautiful!





For my second project, I used the new Laurels Stamp Set along with the 9th Birthday Sketch to make a pretty birthday card. This set is so perfect for making card sets!




To start, I stamped the leaves with Mint Julep Ink and using the Mini Misti Tool to align, I stamped the birthday sentiment with Mocha Ink. I cut the leaves and sentiment out with a Stitched Circle Stacklets Die and sponged around the edges with Cupcake Ink. I then layered that over another circle cut with Sprinkles cs.

I used dp from the Hello Happiness 6x6 Paper Pack for the rest of my layers and to finish it off I added some Lollipop Enamel Shapes. Such a quick and easy card!
