Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month!

10:33 AM 2 Comments

Hello!  I wanted to share this set of tags I made using the adorable Taylored Expressions December Stamp of the Month-Going Places!  I had so much fun making these, and they were so quick and easy!  I cut my tags with a TE Tag Stacklets 1 Die out of My Mind's Eye My Girl dp.  I added images from the Going Places Stamp Set and also used the coordinating Enjoy the Journey Dies.  The border was cut with the TE Open Scallop Border Die and I also used the TE Grass Border Die on my door tag.  Here are some close ups of each tag:





I'm off to do some final Christmas shopping!  Gotta get those teacher gifts for tomorrow:)  Thanks for stopping by and have a great Thursday!

Hello! It's time for the Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month and Key Ingredients Blog Hop!  This month's set is super adorable and fun (aren't they all?!!!).  It's called Going Places and the Key Ingredients Kit comes with Webster's Pages New Year New You dp.  Here's a look at them both:

 
There are also some coordinating dies that you can get to go with the Going Places stamp set called Enjoy the Journey Dies.  I used these dies to cut out my sentiment panel, the bike, and the clouds.  Such a quick and easy CAS card!
 

The layout I used is the Deconstructed Sketch #129

    Taylored Expressions December Spotlight Day:

    Hello!  We have one more day of projects for you using all of the new sets from Taylored Expressions!  I chose to make a card using the gorgeous new Shine Bright set.
     
    I stamped the chandelier image with Versamark and heat embossed with Black embossing powder.  I cut it out with the coordinating die and layered it over some My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Heirloom dp.  I stamped the sentiment onto a banner I cut with a Banner Stacklets Die.  Here's a close up:

    I used the fabulous sketch for my card today:)
     

    I just LOVE this snowman from the set Snowman Delight - so cute!  I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  I also added the fun border using the YNS Snowflake Border Die.  The dp is Simple Stories December Documented.

    Taylored Expressions December Release Day: Saddle Up!

    10:00 AM 1 Comments
     
    Hello again!  It's release day at Taylored Expressions which means that all of the new sets are now available!!!  We have more inspirational projects to share with you today, in case you're a little undecided about which sets you should get:)  Personally, I love them ALL!
     
     
    My card today features the petite set Saddle Up with coordinating dies.  So fun!  I stamped the boots and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics.  I stamped the rope image lightly over the sentiment with mustard ink.  I cut the boots out with the coordinating die and popped them up on foam tape.  The dp I used is Simple Stories Awesome.  Here's a close up:


    Love that sentiment!  Here are my supplies:
