Happy 4th of July

Pin It

I know it's not 4th of July yet, but being that it is Memorial Day weekend, I'm in a very red, white and blue mood!  :)  The card I made uses some paper from the Summer Nights 6x6 Paper Pack from Taylored Expressions.  I also used the Star Border which goes along with the patriotic theme.   I die cut the Star Border out of Blue Corn cardstock and then die cut another out of paper that I covered with silver glitter.  I insert the silver glitter stars into the blue border.

The stamped are from the Rocket's Red Glare Stamp & Die Combo.  I added some sequins from the Summer Night Sequins to create the trail of the rocket.   The last touch I added to the card was the stars in the upper left corner.  I created those out of the glittered cardstock I made using the Star Stacklets.

I hope you've been inspired today!  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Red, White and Blue weekend!!

I have a card to share today using the Viva la Verve Week 2 sketch.  I used the Be Blessed set for my card along with the Petal Points Die Set and the Sprightly Sprigs Die Set.  To add a little sparkle, I added the Pink Sparkle Sequin Mix!

I just LOVE the happy, bright colors in this collection.  Come play along with the Viva la Verve Sketches!!  It gives you a great starting point for your card!  Plus you can win some Verve!!  Thanks for stopping by today and have a happy day!!

Taylored Expressions RELEASE DAY!!!!

Pin It

Today's the day!  All of the new products that we've been sharing with you this week are NOW AVAILABLE in the TE Store!!  I have one more project to share with you.  It uses the NEW Patriotic Treat Toppers.

The Patriotic Treat Toppers are fun, festive dies that are great for cards or festive cupcakes!!  I used mine on a card.  I started by embossing the Red Pepper cardstock with the NEW Brick Embossing Folder.  Next I sponged some white ink on it to bring out the look of the brick a little more.  The treat toppers were all paper pieced. . .I die cut them out of multiple colored cardstocks and pieced them together to make one multicolored topper.  The sentiment is from the NEW Of Thee I Sing set.

Thank you for stopping by all week!  I hope you've enjoyed this month's release!  Have a wonderful day and HAPPY SHOPPING!!

Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peeks: RSVP, Block Party, Eventful and Gridlocked

Pin It
 

Hi there!  Thanks for stopping by again today for more sneak peeks!  I have two projects to share today.  The first uses the NEW RSVP, Eventful and Block Party - Party!!  RSVP is a new stamp set that is perfect for invitations of any kind.  It will give you all of the important details of the party! :)  Eventful has all of the occasions!  These two sets work perfectly together!

My invitation is for a pool party!  I've used quite a bit of dies on my invitation as well!  The first is the NEW Block Party - Party.  That gives us the big "party" across the bottom.  The others are previously released Little Bits.  I used Little Bits - Flip Flops, Beach Umbrella and Beach Ball.

My second project uses the NEW Build a Tag 4 along with Gridlocked.  Build a Tag 4 is the newest in the Build a Tag line of dies.  Gridlocked is a new set that coordinates perfectly with Build a Tag 4. Gridlocked is just like it sounds, a set full of grids!  There is also a coordinating die, Gridlocked, sold separately.

Also on my card, I used the Little Bits - Bumble Bee because it worked perfectly with this sentiment!  The background was created with the Corrugated Embossing Folder.  I added some Summer Nights Matched Sequins for some sparkle too!
