Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks: Simply Stamped - Sunflowers and Sack It - Castle

Hello everyone and welcome to day two of the Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks!!! Didn't you just love all the fun birthday inspiration you saw yesterday!!! It's hard to believe that Taylored Expressions is 7 years old.....Whoohoo!!! Wait till you see what we have for you today but first....



Taylored Expressions is 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. 



My first card features the Simply Stamped - Sunflowers stamp set....the background was watercolored and set aside to dry. When dry, doodling was done around the edge and the sentiment from the same set was stamped. The sunflowers were stamped onto Sugar Cube cardstock using three different ink colors and cut out with the Simply Stamped-Sunflowers Dies. 


The leaves were cut out of Doodlebug's Hello Sunshine paper and adhered under the flowers...the Rainbow Brights Sequins were the finishing touch. 


Are you ready for a Princess Party?? We are all set with the invitation, gift bag, and a  card perfect for that special little princess!!


The castle gift bag was created with the Sack It To You die for the base and the Sack It - Castle die set. Lollipop, Jelly Donut, Lavender Glaze, Sugar Cube cardstocks and the pink polka dot patterned paper from the Hello Happiness 6x6 paper pack were used along with Hello Happiness Sequins to finish it off. 


The card was created with the Little Bits - Castle die set and the sentiment from the Pixie Dust Stamp and Die Combo. The same papers as the Sack It - Castle were used along with the previously released Postage Stamp Stacklets for the castle background frame.


The Hello Happiness Sequins and twine finish it off. 


To complete the set, you need an invitation...it was created with the Sack It - Castle dies, the same papers as the castle gift bag and the card,  and the Postage Stamp Stacklets for the shaker frame.  The previously released RSVP stamp was used for the shaker background and the previously released Eventful stamp was used to specify the party type..... Hello Happiness Sequins were used on the inside of the shaker.

Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks: Wishes on a Wire-Birthday and Presents Cutting Plate


Hello everyone and welcome to day one of the Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks!!!!! It's TE's 7th birthday and we are having a huge birthday celebration...WOOT!!!! This is such a fantastic release with lots of new stamp sets, die sets, new cardstock colors, a new patterned paper pack, sequins, embossing folders...my oh my!!!! The release will go live Thursday, September 3rd, at 7:00 AM PST (9:00 CST). I can't wait to show you what I created but first.....


Taylored Expressions is 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. 



My first card features the super cute Wishes on a Wire - Birthday stamp...it was colored with Copics and layered over the background paper from Taylored Expressions Hello Happiness 6x6 paper pack. 



The scallop made with the previously released Small Scallop Border and the hand cut fishtail banners were also made with papers from the Hello Happiness 6x6 paper pack. The sentiment is from the new Party Pals Stamp and Die Combo and the button and the Metallic Twine finish it off. 


The next three cards were made with the Presents Cutting Plate...the first one was cut out of the new Mint Julep cardstock. The Birthday Banners were cut out of the new Pink Champagne cardstock as was the lining for the presents.  The TO sentiment was cut with a die from the previously released On Display Tin Inseret die set and the You is the die from the birthday celebration "free with purchase" stamp and die combo set called One and Only You!! The Little Bits - Cupcake die set was used for the cupcake and the background was embossed with the Graphic Impressions - Birthday Embossing folder. 





The Presents Cutting Plate was used on Salt Water Taffy cardstock for this card and the polka dots on the second present layer were cut out with Lollipop and Cookie Monster cardstock. Sugar Cube cardstock was used for the Birthday Banner, the TO YOU, and the backing for the top and bottom presents. The background paper is from the Hello Happiness 6x6 paper pack.


This card used all the same dies and papers as the card above....since I had lots of scraps left over I could't let them go to waste!!! Lollipop cardstock was used for the card base and the top and bottom present layers...Cookie Monster was used for the middle present polka dots. The Birthday Banner, Presents Cutting Plate, and the sentiment were all cut out of Sugar Cube. The background is from the Hello Happiness 6x6 paper pack. 

That's all for today....thanks for visiting! If you'd like to see more projects and new product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete list of our participating designers! Have a wonderful day!!!
