Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks: Peek-a-Boo Pumpkins and Spooky Arbor Accessories

Pin It

Hi there and welcome to the TE August Sneak Peeks!  We have lots to show you over the next few days, so sit back and enjoy!!  I have two projects to share today.  The first uses the NEW Peek-a-Boo Pumpkins set.  Peek-a-Boo Pumpkins is an adorable set with just that, pumpkins!!!  You can create those pumpkins any way you like because there are different faces that can be added!  There is also a coordinating Peek-a-Boo Pumpkins Die Set that will available for purchase separately!

For my card, I started with paper from the NEW Build a Scene - Halloween 6x6 Paper Pack.  That fun paper with the mantle on it started my scene!  I stamped and die cut two pumpkins and added their faces.  To add to the scene, I used some other fun, new products!  I used the Little Bits - Halloween Confetti for the tiny pumpkin, the bats, the spiders, the skull and the hat that the cat is wearing.

I used the Little Bits - Potion Bottles for the bottle and Little Bits - Black Cat for the cat.  The "13" on the bottle is from another new stamp set called Witch's Brew.

The second project I have for you today features the NEW Spooky Arbor Accessories!  Spooky Arbor Accessories is the newest in the Arbor line of products at TE.  Now you can create a spooky arbor for those spooky occasions!

For my card I used the Spooky Arbor Accessories along with the NEW Wrough Iron Gate & Fence to create my scene.  Again, I started with papers from the Build a Scene - Halloween 6x6 Paper Pack for my card.  I used the Witch's Brew stamp set to stamp the bats in the background, the "toxic" and skull on the sign and the house number on the gate.

The NEW Little Bits - Sign Post worked well for my toxic warning and the sign from the NEW Arbor Sign Post Die Set worked well for the house number.  As a finishing touch, I added a ghost from the NEW Build a Scene - Halloween Sequins to the scene.

For this card, I combined it with a piece of the Beach Border Die and a sentiment from A Day in Paradise.  The papers are from the Summer Nights 6x6 Paper Pack.

VLV Everyone Deserves a Chance to Fly

Pin It

Hi there!  I have a card to share with you today using this week's Viva la Verve Sketch!!  For my card, I used the Happy Place stamp set along with the Flourished Tag Die Set.  I chose some happy papers from the Splendid Sunshine Collection from Echo Park.

I stamped and heat embossed the butterfly in white and then sponged Distress inks on it to give it that vibrant color.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed in white as well.  Both tags were die cut using the Flourished Tag Die Set.  Come play along with this week's sketch!!  It's a great starting point for a card!!  Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!!

Summer Tags

Pin It

Hi there!  Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!  I have a couple tags to share today that were inspired by this adorable tag on Pinterest by Courtney Kelley!  I LOVED how Courtney used a cutting plate to cover the tag.  I thought it gave a nice texture!

I decided to use the Flip Flop Garland to create tags.  I used fun colors of cardstock and a couple of other fun dies!  The pink tag uses the Circles Cutting Plate and the orange tag uses the Loop-de-Loo Cutting Plate.  The flowers on the flip flop tags were created using the Bloomers 1 Die.  The sentiments were created using the Pockets & Pages June Script and Pockets & Pages July Script.

These would make fun tags for summer birthday gifts or any kind of summer party, really!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful day!
