Taylored Expressions Release Day: Loads of Love


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, and the first uses this super fun new die set called Spin Cycle along with the new Spin Cycle Sentiments Stamp Set. I started by cutting my washer and dryer out of Sugar Cube, Poppy Seed, and Earl Grey cs. I turned my washing machine into a shaker card and added some clothing using the Little Bits Clothing Confetti Die. The floor was cut out of some TE Build a Scene dp and the wall is a piece of Sprinkles cs embossed with the new Subway Tiles Embossing Folder.


I added the laundry basket that I cut with the Little Bits Laundry Basket Die and filled it with more clothes. Finally, I stamped a sentiment from Spin Cycle Sentiments and cut it out with a Stitched Banner Stacklets Die. The little heart is a Lollipop Enamel Shape.





For my next card I used the There's No Place Like Home Stamp Set along with the new Little Bits House Die. I stamped the sentiments with Oreo Ink onto Sugar Cube cs. I then added the house that I cut out of some TE Build a Scene dp, some Oreo cs, and some Potato Chip cs that I sponged with Lemon Merigue Ink for the "glow" in the windows.


The background is more Sprinkles cs that I embossed with the Subway Tiles Embossing Folder-just LOVE this new folder:) Finally, I added some grass cut with the Grass Border Die out of Peapod cs and a frame cut out of Oreo cs using a Stitched Frame Stacklets 1 Die. Such a super cute concept!

Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks: It's Your Day!


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!
