Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peek: A Classy View and Chalkboard Elements!

Please scroll down for the Your Next Stamp 4th Birthday Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to day 3 of the Taylored Expressions August sneak peeks! Tomorrow is release day and all of the new stamps and dies will be available~Woohoo!

I have two projects for you today, and first up I am sharing a card I made with the new set A Classy View.  This is an adorable new set that coordinates with the previously released Arched Window Die and the Picture Window Die.  

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copics. I used some fun My Mind's Eye Collectable Notable dp and cut one of the layers using a Banner Stacklets 2 Die.  I used another Banner Stacklets 2 Die for the sentiment.  The border was cut with the Notepaper Border Die. Such a fun image for those fabulous teachers out there!

Next up I have a card made with an awesome new set called Chalkboard Elements! Chalkboards are so trendy right now, and this set is full of so many sentiments and shapes that you can mix and match!  Taylor is also releasing a fabulous new die set called Blackboard & Accessories Dies~Love!!!

For my card I stamped both sentiments and the swirly image with VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I was so proud because it came out so perfect on my first attempt LOL!  I cut it out with the new Blackboard Die and added the banner using the Fly Your Flag 1 with Coordinating Die stamp set. The fishtail flag was cut with a Banner Stacklets 1 Die.  

The rest of the Baker's Dozen has more peeks for you today so check them out!  I'll be back tomorrow for release day!  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday:)
