Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks: Discover Your Wings and Chalkboard Elements 2


Hello everyone and welcome to day 3 of the Taylored Expressions  November Sneak Peeks!!! Today I am showcasing the new coordinating die for the Discover Your Wings stamp set  called Discover Your Wings - Flowers and the Chalkboard Elements 2 stamp set. 


The flower stamp from the Discover Your Wings set was colored with markers and stamped on Choice Snow White card stock. It was cut out with the Discover Your Wings - Flowers die.  The die was also used to cut out a black image. It was adhered to the back of the flower die cut a little off center so it looked like a shadow. The die cut was then adhered to the background that was embossed with a Dotted Swiss embossing folder. The TE Lace Chain border die was used for the scallop at the bottom and the sentiment from The Chalkboard Elements 2 set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and adhered to the Choice Black card stock layer....it was adhered to the background with glue dots. 


The Butterfly was stamped with melon mambo, cut out, and adhered with foam tape.   The Doodlebug Sprinkles and Baker's Twine finish it off. 


The flourish stamp from the previously released Chalkboard Elements set and the sentiment from the new Chalkboard Elements 2 set were used to create the sentiment for my second card. Combined, both of these sets have 47 stamps....WOW!! Mix and match them to create all kinds of sentiments!! 


The sentiment was cut out with the Label Stacklets 7 die and the same die was used to cutout 2 die cuts with calypso coral card stock. They were adhered to the back of the sentiment a little off center on both sides to create a thin mat. 
The flowers  in the background from the Celebrate Life set were stamped with calypso coral onto the Choice Buttercream card stock  and the leaves and stems were stamped with certainly celery.  The button, twine, and wrinkled seam binding finishes it off. 


My last card features the Discover Your Wings -Flowers die...one image was cut from Choice Black and one from Choice Snow White...they were adhered together a little off center so the white served as the shadow.  A small piece of black polka dot ribbon was tied around one of the stems and then the die cut was glued to the background pool party card stock. The sentiment from the Discover Your Wings set was stamped with Memento  Tuxedo Black....this is very CAS  but makes a big statement!!



Now, how about a little inspiration from the Taylored Expressions Baker's Dozen DT....you are going to love all their awesome projects!!!
