Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peeks: Of Thee I Sing and Starry Night Cutting Plate

Pin It

Welcome to Day 1 of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions!  We have a lot of new and exciting products to share with you over the next few days!  I hope you'll visit daily to see what's new!!  I have two projects to share today.  The first uses the NEW Of Thee I Sing set.

Of Thee I Sing is a patriotic set with sentiments from patriotic songs as well as a "thank you for your service" as used on my card.  I have also used the NEW Summer Nights 6x6 Paper Pack as well as the Summer Nights Matched Kit, which includes new cardstock colors Blue Corn and Red Pepper.  The other new product on this card is the Little Bits - Flag.  The Little Bits - Flag is the perfect little addition to any patriotic project!

The second project I have for today uses the NEW Starry Night Cutting Plate.  I just LOVE this cutting plate!  :)  In order to get the stars red and blue, I cut up and adhered little pieces of Red Pepper and Blue Corn cardstock to the backside of the white cardstock.  It was a lot of cutting, but I love the final result.

The sentiment is also from the Of Thee I Sing set.  The musical notes and staff are also a stamp included in the Of Thee I Sing set.  I stamped those in a light gray ink.  The Little Bits - Flag, again is the perfect little addition to this card as well as the NEW Summer Nights Matched Sequins!

Color the World

Pin It

Hi there!   Today I have a card that inspired by two different pins I found on Pinterest!  The first is this lovely card by Taylor and the second is this beautiful card by Kay.  On Taylor's card, I was inspired by the flowers that she die cut out of different colors.  I tend to either use these dies and either color the stem and flower to look like a normal flower, or I "paper piece" the die cut to make it more than one color.  I decided the solid colored die cut flowers would give the card a modern feel and I liked that!

On Kay's card, I was inspired by the sponged background that gave such a nice, soft feel to the card.  I combined these two elements to come up with my card.  I used the Silhouette Stems 2 die and die cut the flower out of Candy Corn, Granny Smith, Oreo and Lollipop cardstock.  After I sponged the background of the card with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and then added droplets of a blue and gold spray mist.  Next I attached the die cut flowers and them stamped and embossed the sentiment from The World Is Waiting in white.

I hope you've been inspired!  Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday Little Lady

Pin It

I have a card to share today that I've made early for a special little lady's birthday!  ;)  I used the Tall & Skinny # Dies as well as the Bugs & Balloons Stamp & Die Combo from Taylored Expressions.

I started with some Strawberry Milkshake cardstock and die cut random numbers out of it.  I saved the inner pieces so that I could put them in after I mounted the piece onto the card with foam tape.  Since it will be the special lady's 6th birthday, I put a piece of patterned paper from the Double the Joy 6x6 Paper Pack behind the six and lined it with some Stardust Stickles so it would stick out!  I also added some die cut flowers from the Bugs & Balloons Stamp & Die Combo along with some dots of Stardust Stickles on the card front. 

The ladybug was die cut, stamped and mounted onto the card front with foam tape as well.  The ladybug was made from Cupcake cardstock.  I think the special lady this is for is going to LOVE this card!  :)

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day!

VLV You Inspire Me

Pin It

I was able to play along in this past week's Viva la Verve Sketch!  This week's sketch is from Anya.  This sketch was kinda different for me.  I wasn't quite sure what to do with the twine pieces behind the circle.  :)

I used the retiring Thoughtful Florals set from Verve.  This was one of my very first Verve sets and now it's on the retiring list!  :(  You can get it on sale right now!  Once it sells out, it's gone for good.  I used papers from the Family Ties Collection from Pebbles.  I added sequins from the Signature Sequin Mix for some sparkle.

Come play along with this week's Viva la Verve!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hot Chocolate

Pin It

It's been far too long since I've been able to participate in a Mojo Monday Challenge!  I always enjoy them!  I'm sure you will too, so play along with us!  For my card I used the Chocolate stamp set from Verve.  The papers are from the Love Story Collection from Echo Park.

I stamped and colored the hot chocolate image with Copic markers.  I die cut the word "chocolate" using the Chocolate Word Die, which I LOVE.  So, head on over to the Mojo Monday Blog and play along with the sketch!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you have a wonderful day!

Taylored Expressions April RELEASE DAY: Baby Treat Toppers

Pin It

Hi there!  I hope you've enjoyed everything we've been sharing with you this week!  Everything you've seen is NOW AVAILABLE in the TE Store!  I have one more project to share with you today.  It uses the NEW Baby Treat Toppers.

Baby Treat Toppers is the newest in the Treat Topper line of dies.  I paired the Baby Treat Toppers up with the Bottled Up Die and the NEW Little Bits of Baby set.

I used paper from the Double the Joy 6x6 Paper Pack as well as Potato Chip, Granny Smith, Sprinkles and Salt Water Taffy cardstock.  To coordinate with the stitching on the Baby Treat Topper die, I used one of the dies from the NEW P&P Stitched Essentials set as well.

Thank you for stopping by all week!  I hope you've been inspired to create!  Have a wonderful day and HAPPY SHOPPING!
