Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peeks: Greetings For Her and Silhouette Stems 4

10:00 AM 7 Comments

Hello!  It's time for some sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions! The new April stamps and dies will be available this Thursday!

For my first project, I made a simple trio of cards using the new sentiment set called Greetings For Her as well as a new die called Silhouette Stems 4!  I stamped 3 of the sentiments from the Greetings For Her set with Memento Tuxedo Black and cut them out with a die from the new Band-It 2 Die Set. The flowers were cut out twice with green and then hot pink.  I cut off the pink flowers and adhered them onto the green stems.  I added a few Kaisercraft Pearl centers and they were complete!  Super simple:)


Next up I have another CAS card using the Greetings For Her stamp set:


I used the new Spotted Cutting Plate to cut a piece of white cs and layered it over some dp.  I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark and embossed with some Zing! Aqua Opaque Embossing Powder.  I cut it out with the new Band-It 2 Die once again-love the shape!

Make sure you check out more peeks from the rest of the Baker's Dozen!  
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Taylored Expressions Die Focus: Luggage Tags!

11:24 AM 0 Comments

Hello!  So yesterday my daughter says "I can't find any of my bookmarks, mom!"  How many bookmarks have I made this child?  Anyway, I took that to mean that I needed to crank out a new bookmark and this time I chose to use the fabulous Taylored Expressions Luggage Tags Die.  

I simply cut the die out with black cs to coordinate with Avery's gym outfit, and adhered it to a picture of her before one of her gymnastic meets.  I then decided to add the word "Dream" that I cut with a die from the TE Windy Tree Die Set.  I tied some blue ribbon to the top and it was complete!  A quick and easy bookmark that I'm sure will end up lost somewhere like the rest of them:)


That's it for me today.  I'm busy getting ready for the Taylored Expressions new release which happens next week!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day:)

Hello!  It's time for the Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month's SOTM is called Take a Spin!  What a fun set!  It comes with an awesome wheel image and several fun coordinating images and sentiments! There is also a coordinating die set called Spin It to Win It!  I used the die set on my card to cut the different pieces of dp for my wheel, the arrow, and to cut out the "hello" sentiment.

The dp and colored cardstock I used comes from the March Key Ingredients Kit!  The dp is from the Simple Stories Daily Grind collection-love all the fun patterns!  I used the Deconstructed Sketch #139 for my layout and cut the fishtail shapes with the TE Banner Stacklets 1 Dies.  Here is a close up:

Taylored Expressions March Release Day: Shade Tree Sentiments

10:00 AM 2 Comments

Hello!  It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions which means that all of the new stamps and dies are available now-woohoo!  

I have one more card to share with you today using the new set Shade Tree Sentiments. These sentiments are so pretty and they fit perfectly underneath this tree that I cut with the Shade Tree Cutting Plate.  I stamped the sentiment onto vellum with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and wrapped it around the card to adhere.  I also added a couple of butterflies that I cut with the In Flight Overlays dies.  Another very simple card which is so nice when you need something quick!



The rest of the Baker's Dozen have projects to share today as well:

Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peeks: Big Bold Thanks and Welcome Home

10:00 AM 4 Comments

Hello!  It's Day 3 of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions! We are celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE Blog each Sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win!


For my first project today I actually used two new stamp sets.  The sentiment comes from the set Big Bold Thanks and the darling images are from the new addition to the Pawsitively Purrfect series called Trixie with Coordinating Dies!

I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I used the Banner Stacklets 1 Dies to cut the fishtails and the dp is My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Dilly Dally.


For my next card I used a really fun new stamp set called Welcome Home along with a new die set called Build a House!


I LOVE this new set!  It comes with so many different parts and pieces so you can build adorable houses along with several fabulous sentiments! 

I cut the image panel with a Label Stacklets 3 Die and used some Echo Park Paper Co. Beautiful Life dp.  The border was cut with the Open Scallop Border Die and the sentiment was stamped onto a Banner Stacklets 1 Die.  I added the flower that I cut with the new Bloom Where You're Planted Dies.  The fence, clouds, house, windows, and door were all cut with the coordinating Build a House Dies-so much FUN!



The rest of the Baker's Dozen have sneak peeks to share today too!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!
