Hi there! Welcome back for more sneak peeks of the September Release at Taylored Expressions! Tomorrow is the big day! You can purchase all that you've been seeing these past couple of days tomorrow at 8am Pacific!! I have two more peeks to share with you today! The first uses the NEW Door To Door and Door To Door Accessories!!
Door To Door is a fun die set that comes with the pieces to create a door, complete with the beveled panels! Door To Door Accessories coordinates perfectly by adding some decor to the door! For my card, I started with the Brick Embossing Folder to create the "house". The door was made using some Cherry Pop cardstock. The wreath is one of the dies in the Door To Door Accessories. I die cut it three times out of three different colors to give it both fullness and a Fall look. The topiary is another die from the Door To Door Accessories. I added a turkey using the NEW Little Bits - Turkey as well as some scattered leaves with the NEW Little Bits - Leaves. The sentiment is from the NEW If Turkeys Could Talk set.
The second project I have today uses the NEW Scribble Flowers. Scribble Flowers are ADORABLE!! I just love the bits and pieces in this die set that you can make different types of flowers by putting the pieces together. I created a little box using the Sack It To You Die.
I die cut the flowers using Lemon Meringue, Candy Corn, Cookie Monster, Salt Water Taffy, Lollipop, Strawberry Milkshake and the NEW Pink Champagne cardstock. I used the Grass Border Die to finish the scene. The sentiment is from the NEW C'mon Get Happy set and was stamped and embossed in white on Oreo cardstock.

Hi there! Welcome back for Day 2 of sneak peeks at Taylored Expressions! I hope you've been liking what you're seeing so far! I have two more projects to share with you todad. The first uses the NEW C'mon Get Happy set. C'mon Get Happy is an awesome set of sentiments all about being happy! :)
For my card, I started with the Floral Cutting Plate. I die cut it out of Sugar Cube cardstock so that it would be white on white for the background of the card. I love the texture it gives a card when you use the same color as the card base. The sentiment was stamped and embossed in Zing White and in Zing Grapefruit onto vellum. The carriage was die cut using the NEW Little Bits - Carriage.
The second project I have today uses the NEW Daughter of the King set. I stamped and embossed the sentiment in white onto a strip of vellum. The patterned paper is from the Hello Happiness 6x6 Paper Pack.
The card base was embossed using the Ikat Embossing Folder. For the gold around the edges of the patterned paper, I rubbed the edges of the paper onto a Versamark pad and then sprinkled gold embossing powder on it and embossed it. I love the look of the "gold-dipped" edges. The crown was die cut from gold cardstock using the NEW Little Bits - Crown.

Hi there! I hope you're having a great day! Today starts the beginning of sneak peeks for the Taylored Expressions September Release! :) And this release is extra special because it's TE's 7th birthday!! We have lots of fun new products to show you over the next few days!! Today I have two projects to share and the first uses the NEW Balloon Buddies set. Balloon Buddies is a fun set with animals and balloons. It has a coordinating die set, Balloon Buddies, that will be available for purchase separately.
For my card I used it along with the NEW Presents Cutting Plate. The Presents Cutting Plate comes with dies that you can "back" the presents so they will be a different color from what is behind them. The background paper is from the NEW Hello Happiness 6x6 Paper Pack. This a fun, happy new paper pack with patterns that are great for birthdays or just celebrations in general! The cardstocks I used are from the NEW Hello Happiness Matched Kit. There are two new color cardstocks this month, Pink Champagne and Mint Julep! The elephant was stamped, colored and then die cut using the Balloon Buddies Coordinating Dies. I love how he looks like he's flying away! :) Another new product I used on this card is the Skinny Mini Party Borders. They create a fun party atmosphere when you string them across a card! As a finishing touch I added sequins from the NEW Hello Happiness Matched Sequins.
The second project I have to share today uses the NEW One & Only You Stamp & Die Combo. One & Only You will be free with a purchase of $50 or more during our birthday celebration.This is a fun sentiment set that comes with a coordinating die. The die diecuts a cursive "you" and the stamped sentiments can pair with that "you".
For my card, I used the "celebrating" sentiment along with the fun papers from the Hello Happiness 6x6 Paper Pack. On the top of the card, I used the NEW Graphic Impressions - Birthday Embossing Folder. Again, I used the Skinny Mini Party Borders to add to the "celebration"! :) And of course it wouldn't be a party with the Hello Happiness Matched Sequins to give the card some sparkle!
